DERMAPLANING WITH FACE TO FACE SPA

Hey y'all! Happy Thursday! For today's post, I wanted to share about my recent experience with Dermaplaning. Over the last few years, I've been to different estheticians for addressing my skin care needs, and I typically treat myself to a spa facial once a month.  We moved to Austin a year ago and I've experimented with different spots, and I finally found Face to Face Spa in Westlake in Austin. So far at this spa, I've received a few different medi facial treatments and services including microdermabrasion, vitamin C mask treatment, dermaplaning. This was my first time trying out dermaplaning. I've heard how amazing it was, so I had to try it out for myself. I'm going to explain what it is below, and my thoughts on the service after receiving it 2 weeks ago. I've had 3 different estheticians so far, but Kristina has been my personal favorite.

1. What is dermaplaning? It's a method of exfoliation that consist of your esthetician using a small blade to gentle scrap off the top layer of dead skin cells to reveal a brighter complexion.

2. Do I notice any difference with this compared to my regular facial services? I do notice that my face is much smoother, and my "peach fuzz" is completely gone. Everyone was also asking me if my hair would grow back any thicker. So far, so good. I haven't noticed any thick hair growing back, but I will continue to keep y'all updated. The other thing I noticed was my complexion appeared more even, and my makeup goes on smoother.

3. How did I think it felt?  I didn't think it hurt at all; it honestly felt like someone was shaving my face. I had to stay really still to ensure there would be no cuts happening on my face.

3. How long does it take? Speaking from my experience only, it lasted ~30 minutes.

4. Is dermaplaning for everyone? There are certain skin types that aren't recommended for dermaplaning. I'm no expert, so definitely consult with your esthetician to see if this is right for you before you decide to do this.

5. Would I do it again? Absolutely. I will see how the results look after a few more weeks, and keep you updated on what I decide, but I plan to incorporate this into my regular facial service every 6 weeks.

PERFECT JUMPSUIT FOR TRANSITION INTO FALL

Y'all this jumpsuit is EVERYTHING! It's so fun because it's the perfect piece to transition into Fall. Pair with a cardigan and booties for Fall or wear it now like I did with a layered necklace and embroidered crossbody. This will definitely be on repeat, especially when cheering on those LSU tigers :) I can't find the jumpsuit on the website, but you may want to call the store for availability. The new stuff they get in usually doesn't last long, so get it before it's gone! Hope y'all are having an amazing week.

DAILY LOOK BOX 2

Hey y'all. I received my second daily look box the other day and I wanted to share what was inside! For those of you who want to know more of the details about this box, you can read my blog post here for all of the details. This month, I received 9 items and of the 9, I kept 2. The first one I kept was this denim shirt- seriously the coziest, comfiest shirt!! I will be photographing the other shirt soon so I didn't want to spoil it just yet. Some of the jeans I received but didn't photograph were: J Brand and  Just Black. These are both cute, but I just couldn't get myself to spend that much money on jeans right now. 

You're probably wondering "Is this box worth it?" Well, I'll break it down for you. Out of the 9 items I received, I loved 2, liked 4, hated 3. I ended up keeping the 2 I loved. The styling fee is $40, which goes towards your purchase. I enjoy the excitement of trying on new items, so for me it's worth it because I know I will find at least one thing that I love and that $40 can go towards an item. I will admit I was a little disappointed in this month's box compared to last month because 3 of the items were definitely not my style. What do y'all think?

THE BEST WORKOUT ATTIRE

The secret is out y'all-  Fitness Collective is my new favorite website for workout gear that is both stylish and comfortable. Seriously, there are so many great items. I love the items I received from here. My absolute favorites are this black top and Koral colorblock leggings. They are both so silky smooth haha.  I keep wanting to wear these to my workout, but then I immediately remember it's 100+ degrees here in Austin and doing my workout class in these is a no go for now :( However, I did wear these last night when we went to get pizza. Nothing better than pretending you just went to a workout as you slam some pizza haha.  I can't wait to wear these to workout classes in the Fall because they are just that amazing. I kept making my husband feel them because I wouldn't stop talking about how comfortable they are. Would it be weird if I slept in these? (Just kidding) I could go on and on about how much I love the items at Fitness Collective, but I'll stop now and let you check it out for yourself. You will thank me later :) Hope y'all are having a spectacular week!
