SCOTTIES TISSUES

Y'all, I have the WORST allergies here in Austin. I hear people complain all of the time about how bad it is here. I'm on allegra and flonase daily, and that still doesn't seem to help. I'm actually planning on making an appointment to get that allergy testing done. If anyone has done that, I would love to hear your experience.  Due to my allergies, I'm constantly blowing my nose here! Scotties sent me these winter themed tissues, so I decided to incorporate them into my decor :)

*DISCLAIMER: Scotties sent me these tissues and compensated me for this post. As always, all thoughts and opinions are my own.*

DAILYLOOK JANUARY BOX


I received another Dailylook box in the mail. I wanted to share with y'all what all came in this month's box, what I kept and what I sent back. The picture posted first was the outfit I kept. The jeans fit me perfectly and this sweater was adorable. I really liked the shirt in the second picture, but it was kind of pricey for a top, so I decided to send it back. I requested boyfriend jeans, however, these were not flattering on me and didn't fit like I expected. I left some feedback, so hopefully my next month box will be better than this one.

TRAVEL TUESDAY- SAN DIEGO


I haven't done a Travel Tuesday in a while, so thought I would hit y'all with a throwback from when we went to San Diego. This was a total last minute trip, so we didn't really plan anything except for a few nights before. Like I've mentioned before, the hubs and I are big fans of Priceline. We always find the best deals through Priceline and we typically do the secret hotel option where we pick out our area and star rating. It has never disappointed us- knock on wood haha. We stayed in La Jolla for 2 nights at the Hyatt, and then stayed in San Diego at the US GRANT for 2 nights. The US Grant was so amazing-one of the nicest hotels we have definitely ever stayed in. I'm pretty sure the hubs scored this for less than $200 a night which was amazing considering we booked it so last minute. We love traveling to the West Coast-such a chill and fun vibe. Below, I'm sharing some pictures of some good food, brews, and fun spots we hit up while we were there. 



The above 2 pictures were taken at Jakes, which was in Del Mar. We thought the drinks were really good, but the food was just okay. It was a super cute place though and right on the beach.


We had breakfast at this place called Werewolf one day, and those breakfast balls were definitely just as delicious as they look in the above picture:)

 WOW-Shorehouse kitchen was definitely our favorite breakfast we had in La Jolla.


 Picture above is taken in front of US GRANT


We stopped at this brewery before we went to the racetracks in Del Mar. It was such a cool brewery.


Bar Bodega was such a cool happy hour spot we stopped at.


We stopped for some wine at M Winehouse.


Checking out those seal baes at La Jolla Cove.


This place was legit AF. They give you a bracelet and you can get tastings of any beer they have on tap. You can just pay at the end whatever you owe.



These donuts at the Donut Bar were soo good!




We thought this was possibly the best pizza we've ever had Cucina Urbana


We headed to the Del Mar Racetrack to see our favorite band, The Revivalists. 




This place is definitely worth the visit. It was so beautiful! It was called the Japanese Friendship Garden in San Diego.

HOW TO WEAR AN OUTFIT 3 DIFFERENT WAYS

Hey y'all- I'm so sorry I've been MIA this week! I'm still not feeling well at all and haven't even gotten the chance to take more pictures. I'm going to share some pictures with y'all of when the hubs and I were in Nola. Some of y'all always ask me how to transition the same outfit to make for different looks, so I figured this would be a great example. In this outfit, I'm wearing the same skirt, purse, necklace, and shades. In the first picture, I added a scarf to a long sleeve top (I picked one out from forever 21 a while ago that was a little shorter in length). This scarf is adorable and on sale for less than $25 which you can find here. In the 3rd picture, I wore the same black top and added this fur vest from Kittsona. I love this vest! In the 4th picture, I wore this sparkly top which you can find here. Initially, when I saw this top, I thought it was going to be super scratchy. I picked it up from the rack and fell in love with how soft it was! I've already worn this top like 3 different times ahha! It's so cute styled with pants, skirts, jeans, etc! PS..these over the knee boots sold out a while ago, but I have these similar ones from Aldo in another color and love them as well:) Hope y'all are having an amazing weekend- I hope to be back in full swing soon :)

DAILY LOOK BOX 6

So most of y'all know I've been receiving my DailyLook boxes for a while now. I changed stylists this time just to change it up a little. This box was probably one of my favorites. I'll post some photos below so y'all can see what all came in it. I ended up keeping this leather jacket because I fell in love!

SKINCARE ROUTINE FAVES

I've been collaborating with Face to Face spa for a few months now and I can't even begin to tell y'all how much of a difference I  already see in my skin. Even before I went to Face to Face spa, I've always treated myself to a facial once/month. I'm so glad I started going to Face to Face spa vs the other places I went to in the past, because I truly see the most difference in my skin from going here. I've also jumped out of my comfort zone and tried different services such as dermaplaning, skin pen, microdermabrasion and I think this has also played a major part in my skin difference. The estheticians are also so awesome and always recommend skincare products specific to my skincare needs. I wanted to chat with y'all about some of my favorites I've received. It's funny because I was putting this post together and realized that most of the products I use on a daily basis are skinceutical products from Face to Face spa. Just so you know, I use these products regularly and have been doing so for the last few months (all except the B5 mask--I just got this one a week ago). These are also products I plan to stick with after they run out because I truly love them all!

1.) Soothing cleanser: This cleanser is a calming cleanser, and is also perfect if to you if you've had any procedure done such as a chemical peel, skin pen, microderm, etc. I love how it dispenses into a foam and also how it's suitable for my sensitive skin. I usually alternate between 2 or 3 cleansers, and this is one of them.

2.) Hydrating B5 gel: I will start out by saying this product is expensive, but it's a serious game changer. I have REALLY DRY skin, and this gel is a miracle worker. I use this everyday! In fact, I'm almost out and I'm about to buy some more of these magic drops ahha! I put a few drops of this on in the morning after the vitamin C serum, and then my moisturizer. I also use it at night time after cleansing and under my moisturizer.

3.) C E Ferulic: This is a vitamin C serum that I use every other day under my hydrating B5 gel. This is another pricey item, but I also feel like this is worth the splurge. If I had to pick 2 items I would splurge on skincare wise, it would be this one and the vitamin B5 gel. I feel like this serum has really helped with my discolorations and also with brightening my skin.

4.) Hydrating B5 mask: I actually just tried this for the first time a few days ago. I love love love trying out facial masks, and this one is perfect because it's super hydrating. Also, you just spread a layer on your face, let it penetrate into your skin, and then massage the rest of the product into your skin.

5.) Retinol 0.5: I use this for wrinkles, discoloration, etc. I only use this once/week at bedtime under my moisturizer.
