My Wishlist






If you know me at all then you realize this, beauty, fashion and really good food are three things I'm in love with and in almost exactly that order, haha.  Nutrition and beauty are intrinsically tied and today's post features the latest ways to provide your skin with the healthy nutrients it loves and needs.  Specifically, K-beauty and the incredible benefits it holds.  I'm so inspired by way Asian women treat, protect and care for their skin.  Self-care rituals are a long standing tradition of the Eastern culture and are steadily working their way west.  Taking the time to effectively pamper yourself and your skin daily will pay dividends in the years to come.  And honestly, what could be better than daily me time that results in a lifetime of gorgeousness?  While the steps may seem like many at first, they are easy to do and really don't take much time at all.  Plus, you're going to love it and look forward to it, trust me.  I've put together a beginner's guide to get you started along with some of my favorite products that get real results.

1. CLEANSING OIL -  Mornings are simple, just a splash of cold water or micellar water will refresh your complexion but at night I indulge in a thorough cleanse that releases impurities and rides my face of the day.  Follow up with some micellar water or a second cleanse if you feel your skin needs it.

2. EXFOLIATE - A soft rice-based mechanical (vs. chemical) exfoliator will help to loosen and remove dead skin cells and allow those healthy new glowing cells to shine through.  Along with that, your skin is so much better able to absorb all the skincare goodies you'll be applying next.  Try sticking with this step a few times a week for optimal results.

2.  TONER - Readjusting your skin to its proper pH is essential and a good toner will do exactly that.  

3.  ESSENCE - Rehydrate and soften your skin with the nourishing effects of a luscious essence.  Not only does it make your skin baby smooth, it helps draw every product down deep into the under layers of the skin which is where you need them to reach in order to do their job.  This step is a must-do.

4.  SKIN AMPOULES and SERUMS - When it comes to product efficacy, these two are where it is at. Serums and ampoules contain the most effective ingredients in both the best concentrations and most readily absorbable formulas.  If you had to choose between them and a moisturizer, these powerhouses win hands down.

5. SHEET MASKS & SLEEPING MASKS- Several times a week be sure to treat your face to one of these beauties.  They come in a ton of varieties designed for every skin type and concern.  This is my current favorite.

6. EYE CREAM - Nourish your eye area and give it some extra love with a hydrating, peptide rich eye cream that strengthens and supports the skin's barrier function and improves elasticity.

7.  SKIN OIL - Finish with a luxe skin oil that will seal in all the other nutrients, hydrate your cells and leave you with the famous glass skin glow.

Feeling interested?  I've linked the top sellers for you down below.  Give a couple a try and let me know how much you and your skin love them!

TGIF!  We say it often but somehow it never gets old.  Friday's here and so is comfort dressing.  Today's focus....skirts and sneakers.  What was once a fashion taboo has now become part of the uber chic clique and I couldn't be happier!  What could be better than sporting your sneaks while looking cute and fresh?  And today there are so many excellent options to choose from, deciding is the only hard part.  Midi skirts are my favorite way to wear the look.  They are the perfect mix of demure and allure and paired with a great pair like these...game over.

What's everyone doing this weekend and what are you all wearing?  Have a wonderful weekend friends!

Can you believe that Memorial Day weekend is only a weekend away?  Wow!  That means I've got summer on my mind.  Even though the weather has yet to really warm up, there are still plenty of ways to welcome summer via your outfit choices.  White jeans are a spring and summer staple around which probably a zillion outfits can be built.  Today I'm pairing them with classic fabrics and warm neutrals.  A denim jacket is every girl's must-have and this one has my vote.  Fun tassle earrings dress up an otherwise casual look.  Love these.   Need a slightly dressier option for a summer date night?  This leopard skirt is the perfect fit.  You can wear it for low key drinks at sunset with a cute flat sandal and black tank.  Or dress it up with heels, a silk cami and your favorite little clutch.  This adorable little sunhat makes pool days super simple as it lets your top knot peek out.  And this skin perfecting mask will be on rotation all summer long.  Finally, this bag is my absolute favorite this year.  Soft, smooth leather, gorgeous caramel color and roomy enough to carry anything you need.  The end.  Haha, hope you love these picks as much as I do.  I've linked them below just in case you do!  Happy Wednesday friends!

Monday goals are best upheld by laser focus and a great outfit.  Haha, I'm only half kidding.  Honestly though, depending what you do on the daily, some days are designed for getting stuff done outside the office.  If that's today, then this look is perfect for you.  Oversized graphic sweatshirts, classic sneakers, a menswear blazer and rose colored glasses will take you everywhere with style to spare.  Don't you just love that chic can also be easy? On a Monday that scores double points.  What's your favorite easy chic go-to? 

Hope everyone's having a great Monday!
