Happy Wednesday my sweet friends!

It's been close to a year since I've last shared my skincare routine and it's pretty much changed entirely, with the exception of my face wash. It's the same brand, just a different formula. I have to be honest and say that I was a bit inconsistent with my skincare routine during my last pregnancy because my main symptom was fatigue and I just wasn't in the mood to fuss around with a ton of bottles. When I was pregnant with Aviah, I didn't really experience any skin changes while pregnant, though immediately after she was born, I got a ton of new freckles on my face, which I was fine with. With my Ariah, I noticed that those same freckles darkened and my face looked dull. There was no "pregnancy glow." As I neared my due date, while the 'Sephora Spring Sale' was conveniently going on, I thought it was the perfect time to try some products specifically tailored to brightening the skin, but that were safe and clean to use while pregnant.  I didn't experiment too much with anything new, only a handful. I shared a  little haul in this post. I guess you can consider this post a somewhat follow-up to that one, since I'll be mentioning my thoughts on some of those products today.

Happy Wednesday friends!

If you're a Sephora shopper then you know they just ended their annual spring sale on Monday. I've only been shopping the sale since last year, which I had shared on stories that I had gotten the Fresh Brown Sugar Body Polish Exfoliator and Caudalie's Deep Cleansing Exfoliator. I ended up really loving both products and did a review on the Caudalie exfoliator, which you can read here

All of the brands I purchased from, with the exception of the Clarisonic, are...

Happy Tuesday beauties!

Towards the end of January, I received the Laura Mercier Flawless Lumiere Foundation Vox Box, courtesy of Influenster. I've personally never tried any Laura Mercier products before, but have heard such great things about the brand overall, but specifically on the cult favorite translucent powder, which I've yet to try by the way. Have you?

This box showed up at the perfect time because I was running low on both primer and foundation. Though the Vox Box campaign is named solely after the Lumiere foundation, they also included the basic Foundation Primer as well. I not only tested how both worked together, but how each worked individually using either another primer or foundation from another brand to see if there was a notable difference, which there was...continue reading to find out more!

Happy Friday, my sweet friends!

If you remember, a couple of weeks ago, I reviewed quite a few makeup products that I received courtesy of Charlotte Tilbury (view post here). I mentioned that I had also received a moisturizer that I'd be reviewing in a separate post, which is today!

Happy Thursday my sweet friends!

In a little less than a week, I'll be turning 30! These past few years, I've been taking my skincare very seriously, which is what encouraged me to begin sharing all things skincare on the blog, in addition to all the fashion focused topics. I believe it's something that we all should pay mind too, regardless of age. The earlier we start, the more inclined we are to begin to establish a healthy skincare regimen.

Happy Tuesday my sweet friends!

A couple of months ago, Charlotte Tilbury reached out and presented me with the opportunity to review products from their latest collection prior to their release, which just landed at Sephora this past week. I was ecstatic for a number of reasons. One, I love the fact that all of the products have at least one toxic chemical removed, i.e. sulfates, parabens, etc. I love when luxury and high end brands omit those ingredients and the packaging is always gorgeous, which doesn't hurt :)

Happy Tuesday my sweet friends!

About a month ago, Dewy & Bae Melbourne reached out to me and asked if I'd be interested in testing out their Raw Glow nourishing face serum. Before answering, I did a quick read through on their site to see if it matched what I tend to look for in my skincare products, specifically serums. As you can see, I ultimately agreed after having read that it was 100% vegan, gluten free, and safe to use during pregnancy.

Happy Wednesday my beautiful friends!

I haven't worn this dress in a really long time! I remember wanting to wear it shortly after having Aviah last summer and I didn't quite fit in it, so you can imagine how excited I was when it zipped up...all the way, lol! I actually styled this dress before (see here) almost identically to the way I've worn it today, but with a different pair of shoes and a more subtle makeup look. Though it's the same dress, the look is very much different. This time around, it screams summer a little louder, as I'm sporting a very bold orange lip.

Happy Monday my beautiful friends!

I was recently given the opportunity to test out two of Dior's face masks from their Hydra Life collection. Today, I'll be sharing my thoughts on the Pores Away Pink Clay Mask and will share a review on the other in the upcoming weeks. 

What really sparked my interest in wanting to give these masks a try was the fact that...

Happy Wednesday my sweet friends!

I hope you're all having a great week so far! 

A couple of months ago, Love Beauty & Planet sent me a few products to try out, including their argon oil and lavender smooth & serene shampoo and conditioner duo. I've never heard of the brand before, so I was excited to test them out. I was immediately intrigued by the beautiful packaging, the fact that it was suited for frizzy hair (which I have), and the fact that they don't contain parabens and other harsh chemical ingredients, which as you know I really try my best to avoid.
