My Valentine’s Day Edit

With Valentine’s Day right around the corner, it’s time to start prepping the ultimate date night (or day) outfit.

There’s no one right way to do Valentine’s Day. However, the one thing I do know is that you can never have enough red or pink. I decided not to shop for this holiday. I wanted to dress up some pieces that I have in my closet.

So, whether you’re staying in for a cozy night with your boo or catching a movie with your girlfriends, I hope these inspiration shots guarantee you a fashionable holiday.

1. Fancy Romantic

I am always up for a dressy romantic sit down dinner… or lunch. If you’re like me and love to get dressed up then this look is for you! Personally, I wanted a dress I could wear for Valentine’s Day and which could also easily transition into spring. That’s why I chose this floral dress paired with some red booties. I just adore the relaxed feminine silhouette and the filly sleeves.

The simplest ways to transform this Valentine’s Day look from day to night! ~ Add red pumps and a cute bag. I know you ladies have a floral dress somewhere in your closet just add red pumps, a cute bag some red lipstick and you’re good to go.

2. Girls Night Out

Valentine’s Day is not all about romantic relationships. Although your significant other is important so are the lovely ladies in your life. So, throw on something sassy like this pink and white slip dress, grab your crew of loving and lovable gal pals and hit the town for some drinks and dancing.

3. Netflix & Chill

No need to get sloppy in your sweats if you’re chilling at home. I love this oversized fuzzy sweater paired with leggings or jeans. The comfort level of this sweater suits any homebody activity. So turn on Netflix, order in the Thai food, and hunker down in utter coziness.

Ways to keep your Skin Clean, Merry & Bright this Holiday Season

Hello Lovelies,

I enjoyed reading and looking at everyone’s Black Friday  purchases and experiences on Instagram.  Now that most of us have found that perfect dress, shoes, bag and mascara to rock for the upcoming holiday festivities, I am here to kindly remind you to not forget about your skin. What’s beneath your makeup matters, too!

 

The weather and the holiday season has not always been kind to my skin. But this season I am changing that, thanks to the Hydro Boost Body line.  I am partnering up with Neutrogena to give dry skin the cold shoulder.

I am loving the Hydro Boost Gel Cream, Whipped Body Balm and Hand Gel Cream.  At first I was unsure of the gel like feel because it reminded me of sticky hair gel. However, I was pleasantly surprised when I applied it to my skin. The lightweight body gel absorbed quickly into my skin leaving my skin soft, smooth and silky with no sticky residue.  These products are formulated with hyaluronic acid, so it boosts and locks in hydration. The added bonus for me is that fresh, clean after shower smell.  My husband noticed the difference in my skin after a week and now he’s hooked on the Hydro Boost Body line too 

Before I sign off here are my top 3 skin care tips to help you survive the holidays

Increase your glow before the party.

Start your morning off on a good foot by cleansing and moisturizing your skin.

Savor your glass of red wine.

But don’t forget to stay hydrated by drinking plenty of water.

Do damage control after the party.

Have fun and enjoy yourself, but when you get home, take off your makeup and give your skin a little extra pampering.
