I believe in toner!

 

Follain

 

Cliniques toner left my skin dry, red and irritated I swore off using toner on my face. After doing some research on different products I decided to give it a chance again. I wanted to change up my skincare routine and multiple articles out there swear toner is the way to go when it comes to improving your complexion. I stopped by Follain in the South End and purchased the SW Basics toner. It’s completely organic with ingredients like raw apple cider vinegar, Witch Hazel from wild crops farm, sandalwood, and essential oils of clary sage. It didn’t burn after the first use which is a good sign that my face can handle it. I would suggest using it twice a day (morning and night) to get the best results. My face is definitely thanking me for using this.

There’s something about pleated skirts

I just purchased two skirts from Asos last night and I’m so excited for them to come in the mail. Long and short pleated skirts for the spring/summer time. I don’t know if anyone else does this but I try to buy things that match or work well with items I already have. I also purchased this blue cami dress that I want to wear when I go to Paris this summer. I’m still mad at Asos for taking away free shipping but I’m a loyal customer so I’ll deal with it. My items are below!

A day at the museum

The Museum of Fine Arts was free on Martin Luther King Day so my boyfriend and I decided to go. It’s been years since I’ve stepped inside this museum so I was excited to see everything. My favorite part of the day was the Hollywood Glamour – Fashion and Jewelry from the silver screen exhibit. Gowns and jewelry from the 1930’s and 40’s worn by famous actresses during Hollywood’s most glamorous time. There was Chanel Haute Couture, a gown designed by Travis Banton who was the chief designer at Paramount Pictures, and Edith Head an American costume designer.

Lets talk about mules

I have this attraction to mules for some reason. Maybe it’s because I found these vintage Jimmy Choo Mules for 36 dollars?? To be honest I like them because they’re so damn comfortable. I still get the classic heel style I love along with a sandal. Wearing heels in the summer can be uncomfortable so I think my new thing will be to start wearing mules with all of my cute sundresses and skirts. Of course I’ll break out my pumps on the weekends!

Mario Badescu Eye Cream

I finally  got my hands on this product and I love it. You can definitely see a difference after the first use. When I don’t get enough sleep at night you can see how tired I am when you look at my eyes so I needed a product like this.

 

Ulta BB Cream Beauty Balm

I’m excited to use this product. I usually wear makeup when I’m going out but I wanted something lightweight and easy to use during the day and BB  creams are perfect for that. It applies very smooth and it’s doesn’t cause breakouts.

 

Gucci Guilty Perfume Set

It smells AMAZING.. That’s it!

 

Soul Sunday Sugar Scrub

I love Soul Sunday Products and I got this sugar scrub as a Christmas gift. I use the multi-task oil right after the scrub and my skin feels like heaven! This could also be used as an exfoliator.
