Hi!
Its almost the unofficial kick off of summer, I'm so excited. It feels as if we've mossed the last two summers. So, everyone it seems is VERY excited for this one. 
Where I have lost a substantial amount of weight, I've had to buy an entirely new summer wardrobe. (I say had to, but you know I loved EVERY second of it!!) 
When you do need to buy a whole bunch of clothes at once, its important to find sales. Heck, even if you are just buying one or two things...who doesn't want a good sale?

Here is a roundup of a few of the best sales happening this weekend.

If you are unfamiliar, Elemis London is a top shelf line of skin care.  My personal favorites are the Pro-Collagen Rose Facial Oil and the Pro-Collagen Definition Night Cream
This is a prestige brand that doesn't often go on sale. This sale is too goo to pass up.













 




Hi there:
How is everyone doing today? This past weekend we had our 1st 90 degree day, it was glorious. 
I posted the above photo to my instagram. I had several people tell me how back in the day they used to make their own cutoffs. That got me thinking.... what a glorious way to repurpose those (hopelessly out of style) skinny jeans! I dug through and found a pair laying around that I had yet to donate and decided to give it a try. It really was a simple process.


Step 1:
Put on your jeans. Use a pencil or a piece of chalk to mark where you think you'd like the jeans to hit once they are shorts. 

Step 2:
Take them off and lay them on a flat surface. Find a pair of shorts that you really like the length. put these on top of the jeans aligning the waist bands. See where the shorts fall in accordance to the initial line you made. Make your decision as to where you want to make the cut.

Step 3: Use a ruler to make a straight line with your chalk or pencil 2.5 inches or so BELOW where you want your shorts to hit on your leg. Remember, you can always take more off, but you are unable to add it back once you snip it.

Step 4: Put them back on and fold up those last 2.5 inches. Decide is this still where you want them to hit.  If you like the cuffed look, great! All you have to do now is iron the cuffs into place and your done! If you want them frayed there are two more steps to follow.

Step 5: Take them back off and fold vertically so the legs are onto of each other. Make the last cut (both legs at the same time) at a slight an angle.
 You'll want the inseam of your shorts to roughly be 1.5 inches or so lower than the outer seam. Take any straight surface and eyeball a straight line from the mark on the outer leg to the inner seam, and make a dot there. Next, measure  1.5 inches below that dot, and make a mark there. Lastly, using the straight surface to actually draw a final cut line from the original mark on the outer leg to the new, lower mark on the inner leg.

After you go ahead and cut along that line, try them on and see how they look. If they feel too snug in the legs (it is skinny jeans we are talking about) make a slight snip in the inner seam of each leg. Once you put them through the washer and dryer, they'll get that frayed look.

XO,



 




Hello.

I hope that today finds you well. It FINALLY feels like spring around here. This past Friday is when it happened. In the morning, it was 49 degrees out. We had the heat on. By late afternoon it was over 80 degrees, and we had to put the AC on. I am not complaining at all though. I LOVE this time of year.

Anyway, today I wanted to share my morning skin care routine with you.  Back in my younger days I had no "Morning skin care routine". Heck, back then my nightly skin care routine was nothing more than washing my makeup off. Now, that just won't cut it. In order to keep my skin looking and feeling its best, I need to put in a bit more effort.

Now, don't be mistaken. My morning routine is not long, drawn out or complicated. In fact, its quick, easy and seamless. Here is an overview.




As soon as I get out of the shower, I swipe my face with a cotton ball that is saturated with this magical potion.
I've ALWAYS been prone to clogged pores, particularly on my nose and chin. This has all but eliminated that problem.





Next, I use this Hyaluronic serum. This is such an amazing hydrator. It literally plumps your skin. A little bit of this goes a long way and works wonders. Aside from the moisturizing benefits, this potion reduces those pesky fine lines.






This right here is my product holy grail. I wear it EVERY.SINGLE. DAY.  It doesn't matter what the season is, sunscreen is essential. This is SPF 30. It also is infused with vitamin C. Vitamin C is an anti aging power house. It brightens skin and increases elasticity. Each and every time I've tried to use vitamin C prior to discovering this product, it would end up being too drying / irritating.  This is also a powerful moisturizer , therefor no drying.




** Bonus Item**......




If my skin is in need of some extra TLC, this is what I reach for.  Its beyond soothing.


There you have it, my quick, easy but EFFECTIVE morning skin care routine.



XO,
