St. Ives

Hi guys!! So I received a great skincare package from St. Ives and had to share with you what they sent. They recently came out with facial sprays that are just PERFECT for the Summer. To be honest, I wasn’t sure how I would feel about a facial spray that was SO scented. I have very fair skin and some scents can irritate my face. I have been using these for weeks and they haven’t irritated my face at all.I spray the Lavender scent almost every night before bed and the orange scent in the morning to wake up my skin.

I have very dry skin and it usually gets better in the summer but with this rain and cold Spring we are having it is taking it’s sweet time to get nice and glowy. These sprays have definitely helped my skin and it’s a perfect addition to my daily skin routine. You guys can shop these sprays here and enjoy your fresh new skin – lavender is my favvvvvv!!

Let me know if you guys have tried them and what your thoughts are! You will love them I assure you.

Do I Smell?…

Hi guys! I am SO excited for this blog post. I have been trying to find a natural deodorant that actually stops my sweating AND stops the smell. We all know how important deodorant is and until now I didn’t think I could find a deodorant that was natural but still did everything it needed to.

A couple of weeks ago I was scrolling through Instagram (like I often do) and found a company I had never heard of…Type: A Deodorant. I wasn’t sure when I first saw the product because it was packaged like I’d never seen deodorant packaged before. The deodorant comes in a tube-like container and you squeeze the product out and rub it under your arms.

I was so excited when the company sent me a package and asked me to try out their brand and write an honest review. GUYS!! This is the best deodorant I have ever tried. I wanted to wait a few weeks before I let you guys know what I thought. I have worn this deodorant during a hot vacation in Montauk, moving into an apartment, and a wine wagon where we peddled for miles and drank lots of wine. Never once did I feel like I had to reapply. The deodorant smelled fantastic the entire time and even stopped my sweating. My favorite scent is the Ocean Mint blue bottle. It smells like essentials oils and I find myself asking who smells so good….oh yeah…ME.

I swear you all need to try out this brand if you want to switch to natural deodorant. I will be wearing Type: A for awhile.

If you guys have any natural deodorants you love, please let me know! I am always open to trying new brands and scents & letting you guys know what I think. If you have tried this brand before let me know how it works for you!

Talk soon!

XOXO

Spring Cleaning

** This post contains affiliate links, and I will be compensated if you make a purchase after clicking on my links.

Hi guys! As Spring quickly approaches I wanted to tell you about a new subscription service I signed up for. As we all know, Spring is the perfect time to just clean everything in your house and get rid of everything you don’t use or wear. Hello Spring Cleaning!!

Grove Collaborative is a subscription service where you can get cleaning supplies and home products delivered to your house every month. One of the best things about this service is that you can post pone deliveries if you need to, to personalize what works best for you. I signed up a few weeks ago and I am obsessed!!!

They sell a number of brands from Mrs. Meyers, hygiene products, tissues and toilet paper, Method cleaning products, essential oils, etc! You save money when you shop through Grove, and the convenience of it shipping right to your house is worth the money alone in my opinion.

Along with my other cleaning products I ordered some great Mrs. Meyers soaps, all purpose cleaner, and room refresher. Peonies are my favorite flower, so when I saw the Mrs. Meyers Spring scent “Peony” was out, I knew I had to sign up for Grove. It smells so fresh and floral..but clean at the same time.

 

 

If you guys want to try out Grove, I have a great coupon code that can get you a free gift with your first purchase!

What I’m Shopping Lately

Ahhh Spring is finally in the air and that means time to shop for new clothes!! Every time the seasons change, I like to go through my clothes, donate what I don’t wear, and buy some new stuff.

For this Spring/Summer I am loving a lot of neutral colors and trends. Lately I have been such an online shopper and ASOS has been a ride or die type of shop for me. AND the site is currently 20% off your order! I can always find what I am looking for, whether it’s athleisure or more of a fancier look.

We have a couple of trips planned this Summer so I wanted to start planning some cute looks now!

Here is what I bought….

Green Dress $35.00

I loved how simple yet chic this dress is. The big buttons add such a subtle and cute design to the piece. I am planning on pairing the dress with a cute sun hat and sandals

Tan Jumpsuit $72.00

I love everything about this jumpsuit. The simple color yet the cute details of the waist tie and pin stripes. I think it would be perfect for a day of shopping and lunch. You could also dress this up with some heels, fun jewelry, and a red lip.

Belted Maxi $45.00

I love everything about this dress. It is so simple and perfect to throw over a bathing suit and head into town. You can also dress it up with some sparkly sandals and statement jewelry.

Leopard Bikini $42.00

I have been searching for a leopard bikini and I am obsessed with this one. I love the cut of the top and the cheeky bottoms. This bikini paired with a sun hat and sunnies is going to look great on the sand.

 

I hope you guys liked my picks. ASOS is currently 20% off your order for St. Patricks Day so I suggest you go shop shop shop!!!

Home Decor

Hey Guys!

This post is going to super different than anything I have ever really focused on in my blog, but I am so excited about it. As many of you know, my boyfriend Kyle and I are moving into an apartment this Spring. I have been having so much fun designing how I want it to look in my head. It is really important to me to make sure that this apartment feels like a true home. Living in a different state than my family, it is often hard to feel like I am really “home”.

I used to be so much into the mirrored and glam furniture and lately it hasn’t been my style. I am gravitating so much more into Boho/glam decor. I want this apartment to be really light, open, and a ton of greenery. Of course, I will still have my fur accent pieces and some sparkle through-out , but definitely toned down a lot more. All of my inspiration is coming from of course Pinterest…so be sure to follow me there! Pinterest

I am planning on taking you guys with me on this entire journey. I am going to start Vlogging , every week to show how to achieve this decor, while still staying on budget. I hope you guys follow me along on this exciting new journey and I would love some tips and tricks along the way!

XOXO
