All About Jumpsuits! 

Jumpsuits are so in right now! I really wish I could pull them off, but I’ll never be able to (since I’m curvy and 5’2″). Still, that doesn’t mean a girl can’t dream. Here are some of the jumpsuits I would definitely rock if I was tall and willowy:

All of these are available for purchase from New York & Company. A lot of them are on sale for about $30, and none of them are over $80.

Do you rock a jumpsuit? How do you feel about this trend? Be sure to let me know in the comment section!

Pacifica Kale Detox Cleanser 

I rarely have strong feelings about the cleansers that I use. They all seem to mostly do the same things: remove makeup and clean the skin. Some do very little, and some are so heavy that they take too much out of the skin. Finally, I’ve found a great one that’s also inexpensive and gentle on skin: the Pacifica Kale Detox Cleanser. This product is available at Target and online for jut $10.

I’ve been using this cleanser for a few months now, and I really love it. It’s so gentle but leaves my skin feeling really clean. It cleans without stripping too much of the essential, natural oils that the skin makes. I’ve also noticed my acne has been improving, and while I can’t prove it’s caused by this product, at least I know this product won’t make acne worse. I use this as both a morning and evening cleanser. It does a great job at removing makeup.

There are so many great ingredients in this product. It contains clay, kale, coconut water, and aloe vera, which explains how it is great for sensitive skin but still manages to clean so well. For eco-conscious readers, you’ll also be pleased to hear that this container is recyclable, and the product itself is not tested on animals and is completely vegan.

I think I’ve finally found a favorite cleanser! I’ll be sure to repurchase this one when it runs out!

Trend Alert: Blue Jewelry 

I used to wear a lot of jewelry, but I just haven’t as much lately. I’m not entirely sure why, but I suspect I’m getting lazier or I just lost interest when I stopped wearing my engagement ring. So, recently, I was browsing Nordstrom‘s website for inspiration, and I found a major trend in jewelry: the color blue! Now, I’m not really into the color blue (I think because my eyes are green, I just gravitate towards greens and purples instead), but I wanted to share some of my favorite picks:

Would you wear this trend or do you prefer different types of jewelry? Do you tend to wear the same jewelry or do you like to change it up? Be sure to let me know in the comments section! As for me, I’m going to try to wear at least one piece of jewelry daily and see if I can get back into it again.

Crabtree & Evelyn Hand Therapy 

I always keep lotion in my handbag. Even during Spring and Summer, when dry skin isn’t as common, it’s still nice to stay moisturized so that hands remain soft. Recently, I tried the Crabtree & Evelyn Hand Therapy range. These small 0.9 oz containers retail for about $9 in store and online.

I love how quickly these lotions absorb into the skin. They never leave a thick, greasy residue, and they do a good job at moisturizing skin. Also, I have about 6 of the floral ones at this point, and they all smell divine! The scents are all very light but still noticeable. I love when lotion is scented but not overpowering.

Overall, I think I like the scents far more consistently than I do L’Occitane. So far my favorite is Summer Hill, which has a faint trace of honeysuckle (one of my favorite floral scents!) The lavender is also far less overpowering and medicinal-scented than L’Occitane’s, and the rose is more subtle. I will definitely be repurchasing these hand creams!

Clinique Pep Start Pout Perfecting Balm 

My guilty pleasure is definitely buying lip products. I think I already have more than one person can even use up during one lifetime, yet I continue to buy more. Recently, I’ve been wanting a more tinted balm look with a generous pop of color, and I found a really great one: the Clinique Pep Start Pout Perfecting Balm. These are $17.50 a piece at Sephora and similar retailers. I got this adorable tin with three mini versions for just $18. It contains 3 of the 4 shades they make: clear, guava, and cherry. The one I don’t have is tangerine, but that’s definitely for the best since I could never ever pull off tangerine.

I am in love with these balms! They are so moisturizing, and they do not require much reapplication throughout the day. With a tinted balm, you can usually expect a little bit of color that fades quickly, but that’s not really the case here. The pigment packs quite the punch, and a subtle tint does remain even as the balm fades away. I was super impressed with this product. They seem to have a slight plumping effect on the lips, and they perform really well. If you’re looking for a great tinted balm, I highly recommend this one!

What’s your favorite tinted balm? Be sure to let me know in the comment section!

Trend Alert: Rounded Sunglasses 

The sun has been out this week! I love this warmer weather, but it occurred to me that I have officially broken every pair of sunglasses I own. I decided to check out what trend appears to be in full-force this season, and it looks like the rounded and aviator-styles are trending right now! For inspiration, I found a few options (all available from Nordstrom). I’m not sure how well this style will suit my face shape (round/heart), but I might take these pictures as inspiration and find a cheaper version to try for a while to see if they grow on me.

Do you like this trend, or do you prefer a different shape for sunglasses? Be sure to let me know in the comment section!

Ginger & Turmeric Vitamin C Jelly Mask 

It’s no secret that I love a face mask. I’ve probably blogged about face masks 100 times by now, but I have yet another one that I want to share: the Hello FAB Ginger & Turmeric Vitamin C Jelly Mask from First Aid Beauty. This mask is $32 at Sephora and similar retailers.

This mask is so good for acne-prone skin! I feel like my skin always looks clearer and brighter after using this mask. The ingredients of ginger and turmeric really invigorate the skin and clean deep too. I’ve also noticed some improvement of my overall skin texture, which is really exciting. The goal has always been to have smoother skin!

I love that this mask also works for sensitive skin. It’s a great everyday mask and you can really leave it on as long as you’d like. The jelly is easy to wash off and never really dries down. But it’s also very gentle on the skin.

I highly recommend this one! I also think it’s worth noting that this product is vegan and gluten-free.

Have you tried this mask or do you have a go-to mask for sensitive skin? Be sure to let me know in the comment section!

Wishlist: Rebecca Minkoff 

I feel like every season I end up buying a new purse. I haven’t done so yet for Spring 2018, but I have been looking for what I might want. I was browsing Nordstrom, and I found this beauty: the Rebecca Minkoff Large Bree Leather Satchel. It’s definitely at the top of my Spring wishlist now!

This bag retails for $345, so I’m thinking it will have to remain on the wishlist and not become a part of my reality anytime soon. I have already splurged a lot for graduation, and I just can’t justify any more! Still, I wanted to share this item because it signifies a trend in purses that I’ve seen a lot of this season: strict structure.

A lot of bags right now are very square or rectangular like this one. The structure is pretty classic. And a lot of these bags are oversized too (but remember – the bigger the bag is, the smaller your hips look!)

Another trend for Spring is solid colors. A lot of accessories have been solid this year instead of patterned. Sure, we’ve seen lots of fun patterned dresses, but largely the accessories have remained more neutral and chic.

I guess I’ll have to see if I can find a cheaper dupe for this at TJ Maxx or Gabes!

Too Faced Shadow Insurance 

Eyeshadow primer is a must if you want to keep your eyeshadow from creasing. It also allows eye makeup to last longer before starting to fade away. There are so many great primers on the market, but I recently had the chance to try the Too Faced Shadow Insurance. This product can be purchased from Sephora and similar retailers for $20.

I’ve been really loving this product! It’s a bit cheaper than the Urban Decay Primer Potion, and it works just as well. When I wear this, my makeup lasts all day and I never experience any creasing, even with cream shadows. I also love how quickly this dries down on the lids. It creates a great, smooth canvas. The only thing I might like to see would be if this could moisturize a bit like UD’s anti-aging primer. Overall, though, this product seems fantastic, and I’ll definitely be repurchasing. I love that I only need a teeny tiny amount for this to work all day, so the tube is definitely going to last for a very long time. It’s absolutely worth the $20!

Have you tried this one or do you have a favorite eyeshadow primer? If so, be sure to let me know in the comment section!

A Modern Cinderella: Meghan Markle and the Royal Wedding

Of course I woke up early today to experience the royal wedding! Honestly, I was surprised at how emotional I got while watching the ceremony proceeding. It was beautiful, elegant, and everything I wanted to see. I love how the royal family has embraced Meghan. You could tell that she and Harry have such genuine love, and I wish them a lifetime of happiness.

Prince Charles and MeghanPrince Charles and MeghanPrince Charles and MeghanThey are just such a beautiful couple. Look at the love that it flowing between them in this first picture. I can’t wait to see what life has in store for them: I’m sure there will be lots of love, laughter, and

Prince Charles walking Meghan down the aisle is so sweet. Apparently, she even asked him herself and there was no hesitation at all. She’s been fully embraced as a member of the family, and I love it so much!

Also, Meghan’s train goes on for days. It’s so epic – major wedding goals right there.

Of course the Queen looked fabulous in lime and purple!

And Kate and Camilla win for best hats!

Prince Harry and Prince William

The brothers look so dapper. Diana would be so proud of the lovely men they’ve become!

Meghan’s mom is beautiful too and she was just beaming with pride at her daughter!

Also, I can’t end this blog without acknowledging the fantastic Bishop Curry! He delivered a legitimate sermon filled with so much passion. His words were powerful, but I also loved the expressions on the stoic British people who clearly have never experienced a gospel preacher with so much fire!

Since this is a fashion blog, I should probably also mention that this lovely wedding dress is Givenchy! It’s so elegant and timeless. I was expecting something more modern, but this was absolutely gorgeous.

This was a wedding to remember. It was absolutely amazing. Congrats Harry and Meghan!
