With the rotation of my wardrobe comes a rotation of my beauty vanity. The winter months brings out my dry patches so it’s important to keep my skin hydrated and nourished. These are a few of my favorites that I’m using right now. I love Origins products for its delicate and effective results for my skin. This cleansing oil is my favorite to remove any residue and makeup from the day, leaving my skin soft and clean with a spa like scent to make it even better.
I like to apply the overnight mask once a week. It’s like overnight magic where my skin feels soft, hydrated and well rested. It’s one of my favorite overnight mask to help me through the cold dry days. This scent by Marc Jacobs isn’t a new one, but I like to wear it during winter because of it’s bold and rich gardenia scent, reminding me of the holiday season.
Finally, this Foreo device is something I just recently purchased and have loved so far. It’s a cleansing device that I feel has peeled away a layer of dead skin, leaving it shiny and bright. Taking care of my skin is important to me to maintain and keep me looking and feeling healthy.

When Cheeky Physique reached out to me to sample their Sublime lips product, I was excited because of the ingredients I saw and the instant lip plumper effect. This lip plumper includes my most loved all natural beauty ingredient, Manuka Honey. Manuka Honey produced by bees that are packed with antioxidants, making it a great product for hydrating and nourishing. I regularly use this on my face, and love the results so I was excited that there existed a product for my lips that would also plump them as well.
The product has a nice scent, glides on seamlessly and upon application has a tingling sensation. There is no color to the gloss, making it a great application to enhance your natural looking lips.
While I love the ingredients and the feel of the product on my lips, I can’t say that I saw a huge difference in the plumping of my lips. I could definitely feel something working upon application, but I was not blown away at how they looked after. I’m not really looking to enhance my lips for a fuller look anyways so this was not a huge disappointment for me.
I think this product is great as an everyday gloss, keeps my lips hydrated and nourished. Perhaps with many more uses I will start to see a difference. For the ingredients alone, I will continue to use this as a gloss alone or over my favorite lip color.
Sometimes we get in a rut with our hair styles. Today, I’m sharing with you my 3 easy step Bohemian braid look. It’s so easy that you could prepare and finish this look in 15 minutes or less.
First, we prep the hair. I usually like to do this look on 2 day old hair, meaning I didn’t just wash it. Though, if I do happen to wash my hair right before, I like to use a big of Dry Shampoo to give me the texture I’m looking for.
Next we braid the hair. For this look I section a small part on each side and braid. I secure the ends with some hair ties, then about ¾’s way down I pin the braid against my head, leaving the side to be tucked in under my hair.
You can leave it how it is, or you can add and style the rest of your hair as you see fit. This time I decided to give my hair some extra volume, so I passed my curling iron through a few strands to give my hair the bounce and shine that I desire.
This look is so simple and easy that anyone can do it. So the next time you feel like you wear the same hair style everyday, change it up and add a few braids to your look, it’ll be a nice change that's fast, simple and stylish.
