Lately, I have been obsessing over some amazing products! Plenty of skincare and a little bit of hair too, these products have improved the look, feel, and overall appearance within the last few weeks!

Tea Tree Oil Shampoo

Maple Holistics was kind enough to send me their Tea Tree Oil Shampoo to try out, and I have been in love ever since. The scent is subtle, and I have found that it improves the hair, scalp, and hair growth. It’s also all natural, which is something I have been wanting to explore in the cosmetic industry!

If you’re interested in trying out their Tea Tree Oil Shampoo or any of their other products, they are offering a free samples program that I think you’ll love!

Gourmand EDP Fragrance The Matcha

 

This is by far my favorite perfume of the moment. The scent is fresh, sweet, and perfect for every season! The bottle is clean and classic and looks great on a vanity too! And it won’t break the budget.

Hot Vegan Probiotic & Spice Rehab Mask

This is by far the BEST mask I have ever used. It clears up blemishes and the skin, relieving stress and leaving a natural glow. I have already gone through one bottle and need to repurchase ASAP! It’s gentle enough to use daily for the best results! 10/10 recommend!

Fresh Vitamin Nectar Moisture Glow Face Cream

This face cream smells like citrus and feels like silk. I have never used a moisturizer more nourishing. It blends into the skin perfectly and actually gives that after facial glow.

Philosophy Microdelivery Exfoliating Face Wash

I was in need of a good daily exfoliator, and once I found this one from Philosophy, my life has changed. I use it everyday without causing irritation, and it has smoothed out my skin tremendously, leaving it with zero dry patches or dullness.

These items are so good! I recommend trying them out if you are looking for something new!

Lately, I’ve been discovering new websites with some amazing fall pieces. I recently found DressLily, an online shop offering the best of women’s and men’s fashion! They have some must-have fall pieces, like the best sweater dresses for sale, comfy tops, and cute denim. Below are a few pieces on my Dresslily wishlist!

Velvet Floral Patter Short Boot

I’m in love with vibrant, patterned boots, and these floral short boots are sexy and can add a pop to any outfit. I’d pair it with a pair of cropped denim and a black turtleneck for an easy-going look.

Color Block Whipstitch Crossbody Bag

I’m obsessed with how this bag is neutral, yet has dramatic detailing when it comes to the thick stitching. It’s the perfect accessory to pop any basic outfit. If you can’t tell already, I’m in love with accessories that take a simple look to the next level.

Striped Embroidery High Low Hem Shirt

Embroidered dress shirts are such a trend this fall! It takes a classic business look and transforms it to everyday chic. Pair it with dark denim and loafers, and you have a mix of everyday and the office.

Flounce Cutout Long Sleeve Plaid Blouse

Gingham isn’t just a pattern for summertime and picnics! It’s perfect pairing the classic pattern with dark denim and flats for an easy weekend or night out for dinner in the fall.

Tribal Print Chain PU Leather Crossbody Bag

Another perfect pop to a basic outfit! This tribal print crossbody can spice up any look. I’d wear it with black leggings and a super long, cream cardigan!

Dresslily has everything and more for fall and your closet! Check them out! My wishlist will definitely become a reality soon enough!

Back-to-school has officially begun, and that means a new year, new style, and new you! I teamed up with Zaful to show you how you can wear some of their cute fall pieces for an awesome back-to-school look!

Top: Zaful         Pants: Joe’s Jeans      Shoes: Steve Madden    Necklace: Zaful      Bag: Tory Burch

This was my first time wearing anything of Zaful’s, and I fell in love instantly. Their Loose One Shoulder Sweater falls gracefully off the shoulder and fits slightly baggy to add comfort. I paired it with a pair of plain, cropped dark denim, slides, and their Copper Sequin Choker Necklace. The choker can fit snug or loose around the neck and is durable enough to wear everyday. (It’s also a mock of the Lana Jewelry found at Nordstrom!)

Top: Zaful           Pants: Joe’s Jeans         Shoes: Halogen

I’m in love with ruffle blouses, and when I saw the Dip Hem Ruffle Stripe Blouse from Zaful, I was so excited. The blouse fits true to size and has two silver button detailing on the shoulder. The ruffles fall perfectly over the chest and goes great with my cropped, dark denim and these black slide loafers. It was an easy, but sophisticated outfit.

I hope this inspired you to check out Zaful for the best back-to-school looks!

If anyone knows me, they know I love a good farmer’s market. It’s my chance to scope out the fresh produce and flowers and look stylish at the same time! Below is a recap of my outfit and day at the Portland Farmer’s Market!

Top: Forever 21      Sunglasses: Loft     Necklace: Pretty Poppy (Similar)

Backpack: Steve Madden (Similar)     Shorts (Not Shown): Gap (Similar)

On this day, my boyfriend and I were really interested to see what the Portland Farmer’s Market had to offer. They were one of the bigger ones that I have gone to and had so much to buy. From pickles, to fresh fruits and veggies, and the giant sunflowers (my favorite), there was so much to look at.

That day, I wore a simple white off-the-shoulder top with chambray shorts, sunglasses, my little backpack, and a dainty necklace! It was the easiest outfit to sport on a hot day, especially while looking at all the yummy food!

I definitely recommend checking out a local farmer’s market! It’s a great way to spend the day and spot some delicious treats!

Back to school and fall is almost here, and it’s time to face reality, and not only prep my life, but also my closet for the chillier months. I’m in need of some major fall fashion staples, and there is no better place than Zaful to get them! I have been a huge fan of Zaful, ever since I first spotted their swimsuits. They are a one-stop-shop for everything fashion and accessories! Now that summer is over, I’ve been eyeing some of their warmer pieces, like bright yellow sweatshirts, perfect for back to school. Below are a few of my favorites currently on my Zaful wishlist!

Flare Sleeve Plain Bowtie Blouse

This piece is perfect to dress up or down! Not to mention the color is the perfect pop as a fall staple, without it being too bright.

Shawl Lapel Belted Wrap Coat

Everyone needs a wrap coat in their collection. It’s not only warm, but can transform any outfit. Pair it with sneakers and your favorite pair of leggings or heels and a pair of cropped denim to up the look.

Short Sleeve Ruffle Hem T-Shirt

I pick these shirts over other basic tees any day. It goes perfect by itself or under your favorite cardigan. It’s also great for layering and can be worn all year round.

V Neck Ribbed Choker Sweater

Sweaters are my go to! If I’m lazy or even feeling glam, I love grabbing a cute sweater to wear. The choker detailing makes the outfit effortless.

Metal Bar Black Frame Sunglasses

Sunglasses aren’t necessarily a necessity for fall, but paired with a chic outfit, all black shades finish a look and are an easy accessory to throw in your bag if you’re on the go.

With so many pieces to choose from, Zaful is currently offering a Back to School, Back to Savings promotion! If you like any of these items I have on my wishlist or any on their site, take advantage of this great offer!

I am so excited to grow my fall wardrobe with cute and comfortable pieces, especially from Zaful!

Last Wednesday was my 22nd birthday, and it was the best one yet! I spent the week enjoying time with friends and family and doing some pretty exciting things! Below is a recap of my birth week!

I enjoyed a Red Sox game on a beautiful night, tasted local wines at Nashoba Valley Winery, sipped on rose at my birthday dinner at Yvonne’s in Boston, created a masterpiece at Muse Paint Bar, and got my game on at Dave and Busters!

The entire week was filled with such fun and love, and I couldn’t ask for anything more!  Stay tuned for more on my Instagram and an exciting trip that I will be going on soon!

Thanks for all the birthday wishes!

Grace and Stella Co. recently sent me a new product of their’s to try out, and I was super excited. I am all about hydrating the skin and making it look its best, especially in the summer. My skin tends to be the driest with being in the sun all day and working out constantly. They gifted me their Organic Shea Butter Lotion, which was going to fit my needs perfectly.

The Shea Butter Lotion comes in a 16 oz bottle. The packaging is simple with light purple detail and a cute quote that says “You’re my butter half.”  The pump makes applying the product easy and quick, and the overall size of the bottle makes storing the product easy and looks adorable in any bedroom or bathroom setting. I am so in love with its soft scent. It is light and not over powering, so you won’t feel overwhelmed and on a verge of a headache like many other body lotions.

What I love most about this product is how light and non-greasy it feels. The formula is thinner than other typical lotions, which once applied to the skin, soaks in, giving you the best hydration. I always apply it after my shower, and I never once feel sticky or like I need another shower. The product is 100% pure and refined, giving your skin the best and most natural results.

Since using this product, I have noticed such a difference in my skin. My legs are no longer flaky and dry. It preserves my natural tan and even enhances it, giving me a natural glow. The product doesn’t just sit on top of the skin, but soaks in to the deepest layer, giving you the most amazing, natural hydrated feeling!

I would definitely recommend this product! It is only $14.95, and since the 4th of July is around the corner, Grace and Stella is offering up to 70% off their products from June 30 to July 5! In addition, they have given me an exclusive coupon code just for my viewers to get and addition discount!

Check out the product! I hope you love it as much as I do!
