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

#FashionFriday July 13, 2012 – Summer Day Around Town

#FashionFriday 13 July 2012

Hello Fashionistas!! It’s Friday, it’s Friday!! Whoohooo!!! End of the work week & onto the weekend!!

Two days ago where I live, was theee hottest day of the week thus far, and the same day my friend Carrie & I decided it would be fun to catch up, hang out, and shoot some photos….Despite the incredible heat, we were able to keep our cool somehow & not show it in photographs. We had people walking by staring, smiling and just deciding to stand their and watch us do our thing, sometimes this got awkward not gonna lie, but after a while we got used to it and continued minding our own business. It’s one of the many sacrifices one must do sometimes, haha.

Considering today is time to post another segment of #FashionFriday, I wanted to share the photos of our hot summer day! What do you think?

Behind-The-Seams photos [part 2] Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Miami 2012

Continuation from Behind-The-Seams photos (Part 1) CLICK PICTURE to go to Part 1

This will be my last post from behind-the scenes covering Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Swim Miami 2012. It was such an amazing and fun experience. Both the models, designers, backstage managers–everyone– were incredibly friendly.

If anyone I’ve met there miraculously happens to be reading this right now, THANK YOU! Everyone was amazing & I can’t wait for the next time we’ll meet again.

All the swim apparel from Diesel, White Sands Australia, Poko Pano, Beach Bunny, Crystal Jin, L*Space by Monica Wise, Wildfox Swim, Caffé Swimwear, Dolores Cortés, Mara Hoffman, Aqua Di Lara, A.Ché, Norma Kamali, Red Carter, CIA.Martima, Luli Fame, LUXE by Lisa Vogel, Lisa Blue, DiNelia Brazil, A.Z Arujo, Aguaclara, Aquarella, Have Faith Swimwear, Kooey Swimwear Australia, Nicolita, Sonia Vera Swimwear, Jogo Beach, Perfect Tan Bikini, Tavik, & Zingara… were all absolutely stunning. It was torture seeing all the new swimwear and not being able to wear them myself just yet. I would’ve loved to be caught in any of their looks, especially in beautiful South Beach Miami.
