Dresslily Haul //

Hi Loves,

The year is coming to an end, and soon it will be bye-bye comfy sweaters and hello spring wardrobe, but I still have a few months before I hang up my coat and fur boots. I recently had the pleasure of trying a few pieces from Dresslily, whom I’ve worked with before. If you’re new to wholesale shopping; Dresslily is a wholesale site that sales the trendiest clothing of the season ranging from hats, to all sorts of accessories. Now let’s see what I got!!!!!

I brought 4 items, because fashion on Dresslily is inexpensive, but the dollas add up. First item I got was a Asymmetrical stripped shirt, when I first got the shirt, I thought it was badly stitched, and I paid for what I got, but after looking at the product over & over,I seen that it was supposed to look like that. The shirt is nice, the material isn’t bad, very soft and drapes great. The next few items were accessories, I brought a pair of wooden glasses that was only $10. In the cold season, a girl can never have too any beanies!! I brought this embellished beanie for $9, now I know it’s a little steep in pricing, but this hat was socute, and I even got creative, and added some pins to add a lil grunge-esque flavor to it. Lastly, I got 2 layered necklaces b/ silver. They both were about $4, if you grew up in the 90’s these necklaces are a must for your jewelry box.

That’s all for today, I know it was a little short, but there are more post to come! Be sure to like this post + let me know in the comments if you’ve shopped dresslily before, If so, what’s your favorite item you’ve purchased?

Spring Grabs

Hi Loves,

Spring, the season of perpetual flowers, allergies, and Coachella. With the Spring fashion trends I love to see the trending colors, patterns and what’s making a comeback.

Here are some of the Trends I’m loving

  1. Windbreaker and Jean Jackets: What can I say, both of these style jackets are great for every season , but Spring is when you see this trend the most. Windbreaker jackets are a flash from the past and have grown popular again, they are perfect for Spring because they are lightweight material, and can be dressed up with any attire.
  2. Graphic Tees: Tee shirts are super comfortable, and great to dress up old fashioned jeans or leather, it all depends who’s on the shirt.
  3. Backpacks: Backpacks are not just for school, it can also be the perfect accessory for a great outfit.
  4. Pastels: A definite Spring swatch palette that scream “SPRING”

Belize in you | Skincare

black-and-white

Hi Lovelies,

Winter is here and the topic of skin is a popular subject. I myself love a good skincare regimen, but with newer more prominent products coming out, my routine is constantly changing. When it comes to my skin its normally cleanse, tone, serum, and moisturize, so when I heard about Belize in you skincare I couldn’t wait to add them into my routine.

Belize in you Marine and Body Care is a health/beauty company that uses all natural and raw materials for the Caribbean waters and Mayan mountains of Belize.

When I got contacted through pr agents to try a few items, I was excited yet hesitant, I literally had an entire conversation with myself, before replying back. When you get used to the products that you use daily, it kind of a switch up when you have to change it, but anyways I chose a toner and serum, just to see what their products can offer to my skin.

I got the Marine mineral skin toner and the Rooibos tea antioxidant facial serum. Lets talk about the marine toner, the toner looks very much high end skin care, as a matter of fact the cost is pretty much high end, it retails for $55. The product also is 4 fl oz, so your getting a ton of product for what your’e paying. After doing a morning and night routine, I can see a bit of a difference, I’ve used this for about a month, and my skin feels very refreshed and hydrated, some toners have that drying effect on the skin and with the winter here, dry weather and dry skin are both negative factors. The Marine mineral skin toner has ingredients of water, seaweed extract, Phenoxyethanol, which I’m sure is a long word for natural..I guess, this toner is half gone I really enjoy using it, its lightweight, the only thing that that I can say negative is that the pump shoots out to much product, which is really wasteful, a little product goes a long ways.

The next product I tried was the Rooibos Tea antioxidant facial serum, I was really excited to try this serum, this retails for $88, this serum is made of water (aqua), Red tea, phenoxyethanol, and Hyaluronic Acid. I really love this serum, its an antioxidant which is great to help pull toxins from the skin after cleansing your face, its really light, and liquid-y, you only need about 2 pumps, because its easy to disperse over your entire face. The Rooibos tea serum, is very nice, its wet on the face, but once it dries it gives the feeling  a tight mask. The serum is more easy to use than the toner, you can control how much you want to use, which is really nice.

I feel after using both in my skin  routine, has been a great addition, my skin feels very hydrated, and firm. I usually have a problem with scaring,  but they do seem a tad lighter, which is a bonus, but most of all it doesn’t dry out the skin.
