Origins – New Skin Care Regimen & Product Reviews

So I’ve been trying a whole new skincare regimen, I decided I would share my new favorites and new routine with you all for my first post back into the blogging world — it’s been a while haha. I won’t bore you with the details of my short disappearance, unless I get requests, or if I’m bored or feel like sharing randomly one of these days, we shall see… anywho, I did want to share these new finds, because they’re not so new they’ve been around, but I’m not sure too many people rave about it, feels like these are hidden gems. I’m very picky about my skincare mainly since my skin can react sensitively to some products, so I choose to invest a little without trying to break the bank of course. I am debating whether I’ll end up making a YouTube video on this too (: I’ll link it below if I do.

The day I was shopping at the mall I not only purchased products from Origins, but also stopped by The Body Shop for some items and awesome sales going on — The Body Shop Skin Regimen & Reviews. (<<< INSERT link to post)

Side note: there’s a sale going on currently! $20 off $45 purchase IN STORES & ONLINE! PLUS GET A FREE HAND CREAM. CODE: FRIENDS


Okay let’s get into the products I purchased! You’ll read my 2 cents alongside some key info on each product.

IMATS Los Angeles 2013

Helloooooo Beautifuls!!!

I’m so glad you’ve once again stopped by my fashion/beauty blog!


Last Fridayyyyy, I attended my very first IMATS in Pasadena, CA!! I attended with a friend of mine, Carrie…we both had a blast!! I knew what to expect somewhat, from what friends have said, YouTube videos, and also the fact its a trade show, so I figured there would be vendors, tables set up with products galore, and longggg lines… and while yes that’s true, it was basically tables full of makeup and lines to buy the products, there was also a lot more than that going on such as fashion shows, exhibitions, a costume battle, key note speakers, etc…. simply put, it was a lot of fun!

A Pacifica Pick-Me-Up!

Helloooo Beauties!!!

We are now at the start of the fall/winter season, and though I’m loving this fall’s fashion, I won’t lie, I’m gonna miss summer!! Good thing I can keep fruity, citrusy scents around me even during the rainy season. Won’t be giving those up just yet.

On that note, I’ve been wanting to blog about Pacifica for a while now! I’ve blogged about the Pacifica Tuscan Blood Orange hand lotion before, but lately I’ve been using a few more items from the Pacifica line. Loving these other great products!!

First sticking with the delicious Tuscan Blood Orange family… I got:

1) Tuscan Blood Orange – Roller Perfume

This one smells exactly like the hand lotion, didn’t change like sometimes some perfumes do when made into something different. If you’re looking for a yummy  juicy perfume, and looking for one that will be longer lasting than a body spray but still subtle enough for everyday use, I’d highly recommend this one. If you’re wondering what Tuscan Blood Orange smells like, I’d say its very sweet, fruity, very close to a fruity loops smell…it’s a little difficult to describe but it’s delicious. It’s my fave.

2) Indian Coconut Nectar – Roller Perfume

This was the 2nd roller perfume I tried, not as fruity as the Tuscan Blood Orange of course, I wanted a coconut scent so decided to try Pacifica’s out. It’s much subtler, it has a sweet coconut aroma which I like when I don’t want an overpowering perfume, but one that I will still enjoy. I eat, drink, and will drink some more of this fantastic tropical fruit, the coconut. …. Wait, not literally drink this perfume, that’s not good, that’s toxic I’m sure, I mean to say I really like coconut as in the edible kind… Have you tried it the recently popular coconut water?! Omgee!! I’m so happy it’s easily available everywhere now. I know some people don’t like the taste of coconut but I do! Coconut water is incredibly hydrating, & not to mention delish, but now I’m going off on a tangent ;)

I highly suggest trying the Tuscan Blood Orange line from Pacifica if you’re new or never have tried it from Pacifica before, you won’t regret it!! I always get compliments when I wear this. Break it out in the middle of class and apply the lotion on your hands, and you’ll see how people around you (girls & guys) will be like “ummm, YUM!!! What is that incredible amazing delicious stuff?!” :D You’ll thank me!

Next items on my wish list…. All these items from the body line!! Definitely have my eyes on these. Hopefully I can get these soon & review them for all of you!

Last but not least, if you’re still undecided, you can always try out their new Sample feature where you can chose any sample of your liking for only $2! And if you’re already decided or already a Pacifica fan, when you spend $25 or more you’ll get a free sample or two! Links to every page is just a click away.

Until next time!!!
