Supplements are definitely not necessary for everyone, and it’s 100% possible to consume all of the vital vitamins and minerals through a varied die and paying attention to what you’re eating and how often. However, I personally feel good about supplementing a few things that I’ve either been deficient in the past or have noticed marked difference after taking consistently
We’ve hit that perfect change of season time in San Diego where the days are still warm, but the mornings and evenings have a crisp chill coming on. I picked up this deep V boyfriend sweater a few weeks ago and folded it away in my drawer because I couldn’t fathom needing it anytime soon and forgot about it.
I'm not a huge sale shopper because I usually find sales cause people to buy shit they wouldn't normally buy and that they don't truly love just because it's marked down. There's something thrilling about getting a deal, but for me there's something more thrilling about spending money on things I know I will wear over and over and become closet staples. A lot of times, the sale stuff is less of the classic basics and more of the trendy prints, cuts, and styles. Since I'm all about classic minimal foundation pieces, sales just aren't my jam. BUT, when Shopbop does the 25% off sale a couple times a year, that's a whole different story. The promo code takes 25% off your order, on REGULAR priced stuff. So, I take full advantage by moving everything from my wishlist to my cart...
I find hundreds of dollar skin creams to be kinda silly. If your skin is at the point where you’re willing to drop 2-300 bucks on a cream, it might be worth considering your lifestyle factors that could be breaking down your skin and making it look like it needs a cream like that. One of the biggest things I’ve become way more crazy about in the last 3 years or so is sun protection.
Hiiiiii! Happy Friday!! I don’t know about you, but I could not be more happy to have a weekend ahead because I need to get caught up on stuff big time. Not cool stuff, but necessary stuff. Like a big Target run because I’m out of every possible paper good and cleaning supply. And the grocery store because my fridge contains 2 lonely avocados and a bottle of Perrier. And laundry. Ohhhh, laundry!
A lot of times, we care waaaaaay too much what people think. We accept the status quo and work hard at pleasing others, often at the expense of our own happiness or true desires. We care how doing certain things will make us look, what people are saying about us behind our backs, what our friends and family will think of us, how we are being perceived, etc etc.
Grey is one of my favorite colors of all time! Dove, charcoal, platinum, smoke, steel, haze, silver, pewter, slate, dusk…..you name it I like it. And I REALLY like layering different shades of it in the same outfit for an all grey look with tonal contrast. Grey is also a seasonless color – you can rock it year round for any occasion and it goes with everything . Since I seem to enjoy torturing myself, here are my top picks for grey pieces I’m currently drooling over so much it’s painful:
As many of you know, meditation is a really important part of my life and I’ve had a consistent daily practice for many years. My boyfriend calls it my “diva time” because he knows not to talk to me/be around me/acknowledge my existence when I’m meditating. I wake up 30 minutes before he does and before I have to get ready for yoga and completely zen out. When I don’t do this I’m just a wacko. You know those days where you’re so touchy that someone looks at you wrong and you’re like “WHAT?!???” That’s me without meditation.
I’ve always been into lace, but sometimes it’s too girly/frilly depending on the type (you know the big floral patterned ones?) I much prefer more of the shredded, hole-y lace that’s a little more tough than sweet. And you know I love contrasting textures in the same color family, so this black lace top with black leather skirt is my perfect date night outfit! And the shoes don’t get sexier or more interesting than these sandals I am wearing with EVERYTHING as of late….
Hellllooo!!! Happy Monday! I’m hurting a lil today after a crazy fun night at the Paul McCartney concert, but considering he’s 72 and sang + danced for 3 hours straight I should probably keep my fatigue to myself…
I’m back from a glorious weekend in Napa where I consumed the best meal of my life, and coming from me that’s a big deal because I’m known to be a little picky about my food. Let’s just say when a waiter tries to take my order without a pen and paper, I feel for them.
