Skincare Routine || Favorite Face Masks

Processed with VSCO with hb2 preset

I’m the worst when it comes to skincare routines. I can keep up with it for a few weeks and then I skip a day and that ruins the routine. Lately, I’ve been better about it because I’ve been doing a face mask every day. My skin goes through phases of looking like it’s finally going to clear up and then it freaks out. So when I do a face mask, I feel like I’m getting my skin back on track and because of that, I’ve been doing them daily.

It also insures that I’m washing my face every day. I always wash my face if I’ve worn makeup that day, I’m really good about taking my makeup off before bed. But if I don’t wear makeup, I almost never think about washing my face. That’s where the face mask comes in.

More Hair Care

Processed with VSCO with a6 preset

Almost immediately after this post, I changed up my hair care routine once again.

Kristin Ess, AKA the woman responsible for Lauren Conrad’s amazing hair, came out with her own hair care line at Target and who doesn’t want hair like LC? So of course, I had to go out and try it. (No I haven’t finished the Bumble and bumble set I got a couple of months ago. Oops.)

I purchased the leave-in conditioner, the working serum, and the finishing spray. Everything is under either $14 or $10 so it’s super affordable and it all smells amazing.  Continue reading

The Perfect White Peplum

Processed with VSCO with hb2 preset

Last spring I purchased one of my favorite peplum tops from Old Navy. I tried it on in white, didn’t purchase it, and I totally regretted it. I refused to make the same mistake this year.

So I wouldn’t have any regrets this time, I purchased this top in the mint and the coral shade as well. I was tempted to get it in black as well, but I have a few black peplum tops and since I don’t reach for a lot of color, I thought three was probably enough.

New Makeup Products I’m Loving

Processed with VSCO with hb1 preset

Some time in the last few months I’ve completely changed up the products I’ve been using in the morning when getting ready. I’m usually a creature of habit, and 90% of the items I reached for were from the drugstore… somewhere along the way that changed. I’ll blame it on Christmas when I got a few things in my stocking, that I’m now obsessed with.

My last everyday makeup routine was a year ago and I hadn’t changed much of that routine for a while. Until recently. Then I changed it all, so here’s what I’ve been loving lately.

Musings No. 3

Processed with VSCO with a6 presetKind of forgot about this little series I started and then didn’t really know what to do with it. So I think I’m going to try doing this weekly or every other week depending on the number of posts I have for a week. I thought about adding it to Monday since I’ve just been doing the weekly inspiration posts then. But since I didn’t post anything Wednesday or Friday, I decided to post today. I’m not sure if it’ll stay on Saturdays or even have a set day. Honestly, I’m just winging it.

The Softest Stripe Shirt Ever

Processed with VSCO with a6 presetRemember a couple weeks ago when I said I have trouble staying away from stripes? I clearly wasn’t kidding. Sometimes I don’t even realize what I’ve picked out is stripes until it is already on. It’s really a habit at this point.

Especially with this shirt.

And if the stripes are this thin and not as obvious, it doesn’t matter too much if I’ve worn stripes every other day too, right?

This is my go to when I’m not sure what I want to wear. Days when I want to look somewhat put together but still be comfortable.

Cozy Cardigan

Processed with VSCO with a6 preset

Texas weather is really playing with us all, isn’t it? When I took these photos last Thursday, I froze my butt off. It was maybe 50 degrees. The last few days it’s been 80 degrees and sunny and it’s not making getting dressed in the morning easy.

Since it’s technically winter still, I also don’t know if I should bust out all of my spring weather clothes. I know it’s 70 and April like weather but is it too soon to wear white jeans and sandals? It feels weird to wear it in February. Especially when I’m still in the mood for layers and dark winter clothes.

Anyone else that way?
