Your new favorite bag

Ahh yes. The magical combo of suede and leather. Does it get any better? I’ve had to explain several times to Jono that when I talk about leather and when I talk about suede, I’m talking about two different things. A few months back there was a suede jacket that I had been yearning for and when I showed him he replied “You already have a leather jacket”. No, no, no. This is SUEDE. Sure, they both come from a cow (or a fake cow 😉 ) But they are NOT the same thing. He still doesn’t get it, ha. Anyway… About this particular beauty— I love this bag from Hieleven because the materials are super good quality and it’s a fabulous neutral. It’s easy to pair with literally every outfit. I don’t change by bag too often, so I like a neutral color that I can stick with for a while. I have another bag from Hieleven that I also adore. You can find all of the deets here. I hope that you have …

The Santorini Sun

Jono and I had such a fun time on our vacation! I’m not gonna lie, it was a little hard to come home… Back to reality! Both England and Greece were on my bucket list, so I’ve been stoked to have finally been able to check them off😉 Santorini was obviously the warmer of the two locations. The weather was perfect in the low 80s. #takemeback We made sure to drink LOTS of water, walked a ton, and of course lathered up with sunscreen.   I brought my Hawaiian Tropic® Silk Hydration™ Face Lotion with me because I knew I’d want good protection from the Greek sun! Plus, my skin hasn’t seen the light in a while and the first time seeing the sun can be a little scary if you know what I mean… This face sunscreen was an absolute necessity in Santorini. We were outside all day long. Even though I know that it’s important to protect your skin anytime that you’re outside, it’s easy for me to forget to use sunscreen when I’m …

Summer Skin

A little skin history… I used to use a lot of beaded cleansers that doubled as scrubs until my dermatologist told me to kick them to the curb. I can’t even tell you how big of a difference it’s made for my skin since switching to soft cleansers like this one. Here’s the way that my dermatologist explained it to me: When you use beaded cleansers and scrubs, they continually open your acne wounds and spread the infection around. So you feel like you’re getting a “deep clean” but in reality it’s enabling the infection, aka your acne, to stay and spread. #nothankyou! I’ve found that TULA has really great products that are not only gentle for your skin, but they also revitalize. TULA offers a 3-product face routine to help your skin stay healthy and I’ve really loved it! First, you start with the TULA Purifying Cleanser. It’s not overly foamy and it leaves your skin feeling nice and clean. Next, you apply your pH Resurfacing Gel to get your pH to its proper …
