Pattern & Fanny


So there is this shop called Sweet Se7en where every Saturday there are new items listed to their collection. I have 2 to show you that I am in LOVE with! Here is the first one!!

How cute is this top! Just love. It so can be worn so many ways….

And let’s talk about this vegan, Made in America, chain clutch/fanny from Bead and Reel. This company is ethical and thoughtful to people based out of Los Angeles. Everything they sell has a distinct purpose and made to sell for a reason. You must check out this brand!!

Ok so I’m off. Chat soon,

Pink & Lace


so so incredibly sad about this lace kimono that I’ve had forever from Nordstrom. Before this shoot I wore it the week before at my sister’s party and had a little too much fun drinking wine and busting a hump on the dance floor of you know what I mean 😂😂 which equals for what you ask… Well the obvious red wine spillage on my beauty. And the absolute worst is I left it sitting on the washer to TAKE to the dry cleaners and Ryan being the helpful husband he is.. well what do you think he did?? Yep. Washed that shit. And came out destroyed. I almost cried. I think the worst is I was just talking about this little number at the party and how I love it so and how it was a gem to find. Yes I’m sick over a piece of clothing. Am I normal? Let’s hope so.

Hey guys!

Just realized that I have 11 more days until school starts and I’m totally dreading it…. uhhhhh and Caprice starts Kindergarten and that is another very crazyyyyyy and so sad thing to me!! I swear once school starts it’s all down hill from here…. am I right?!!!!

And I have like a million and one things to do before then…

I’m off to search the web for Caprice and Stella’s new bedding for their new bunk beds. Just love them sharing a room.
They are totally loving it too.

Daily Face Routine

    
Heyyyyyy……

So I thought I’d share with you guys my daily skin care routine! I love learning about new products but I can say that when I find something that I LOVE, I stick with it. If you are looking to freshen up your face then you may just enjoy this post…

I have always taken care of my face and have used good products since like forever but that is only thanks to my mom who has literally taught me the importance of this and has supported this habit…thanks mom… I hope to influence my girls with this too eventually.

Ok and please don’t think you need ALL that I use or that I am an expert or anything because clearly I am not, but I do feel if you wanted to change one thing about your daily regimen, well the most important thing we all need in our lives is a good freaking face cleanser!! And NO ladies I am NOT talking about Ponds, Clinique, Cetaphil (oh this was my bff in high school, mom didn’t help support the habit then) or something like that, but a good ol’ professional  skincare line is highly worth the investment.

If you are in the North County area and are looking for an esthetician I highly recommend my friend Stacey in Oceanside. She is very reasonable and the absolute best!! Let me know if you want her number!  I get most of my products from her too. Oh and she has been doing this new razor exfoliating  hair removing thingy on me. UMMM you guys… you leave with all your dead skin and hair gone… if you have any peach fuzz  on your face and yes I do have some..which means no more lip wax.. woop woop, anyways your face is sooooo soooo smooth and your makeup goes on so much better. High five for that. Oh and she tints my brows too.

  
I have just recently upped my facial game and been going once a month and can totally see results.

Here is my current routine:

Daytime//

1. Wash face in morning with Image Ormedic Facial Cleanser and sprinkle in ILUMA by Image Intense Brightening Exfoliating Powder.  This creates a light little exfoliation.
2. ILUMA  by Image Intense Bleaching Serum-used to lighten my freckles and even out my skin tone
3. ILUMA by Image Intense Brightening Eye Cream
4. Colorescience Anti-aging Serum– I just recently started using this and it is uhhhh amazingggg. It has 10 anti-aging peptides in it that hydrates and smooths skin and more!
5. Image Vital C creme
6. Skin Authority Sunscreen
7. Garnier Skin Renewal Anti-Puff Eye Roller– theee best. It has caffeine in it and I swear when I roll that on my tired eyes it tones down the puff and I’m all wide awake.. totally kidding but it does feel good and I’m less puffy from it. It’s magic and cheap.

Nightime//

1. Wash face with Skin Authority Exfoliating CleanserOk people this is seriously a game changer. I LOVE this wash. It scrubs away dead skin and cleanses the face. I have always hated scrubs because they have been to rough but this one is not and is just awesome. please give it a whirl. I have one in my shower and one next to my sink. I also use this on my Clarisonic Brush. I try to do this at least 3 times a week.
2. Repeat all steps, obviously expect the sunscreen. duh.

One take away from this….. wash your face twice a day and take good care of your skin with some good product!!

And I’m off to go wash my face now!

Overalls

  
Hey!

So I have to admit, I suck big time.. I mentioned a few posts back that I was going to REALLY try and post more especially weekly.. well as you can clearly see.. um I failed. MAN it is hardddd. I honestly thought being on summer break I’d make more time.. nope, we have been so busy! I have checked off a lot of my summer to do list actually which is amazing in itself… one big one was getting a better personalized blog.. and I AM working on that. So hopefully soon there will be a much prettier one to look at.  Oh, and another huge to do of mine was cleaning out my closet and selling it on Instagram. I created a new account, follow me to see when I post over on @brooklynninspired_closet to get some of my clothes!

  
Ok ,so on to this look. I am seriously a fan of overalls. I only own 2 pairs of the shortalls but I am itching for some cute pant ones. They are so cute with booties, gladiators, converse slash vans…

Chat soon,

I am the worst.. could you imagine feeling like this constantly?Well Feed Me or Fight Me is a company in San Diego started by a veteran that donates $1 from every tee bought to help feed the homeless veterans.
