My Kimono Obsession

For the past year or so, I've been really lusting after kimonos from all over the place. I just love throwing them on, no matter what the weather is like or what I'm doing. I recently lost a huge chunk of my wardrobe, so as I've been rebuilding it, I'm finding more and more that kimonos really do go with everything (regardless of how much my mom wants to make fun of me for wearing them--haha!).

Target's Embroidered Mesh Kimono is something that I desperately need to add to my collection. It's perfect for the season--not too heavy, but perfect to throw on when it gets a little chilly. The embroidered flowers are also gorgeous and are actually really in style right now.

This kimono is great to dress up or down. You could pair it with some jeans and a bright colored tank top for a casual day, or dress it up with black leggings, a dark cami, and a few bold jewelry pieces.

Each kimono retails for $39.99. I think that's a steal for how much it will end up being worn.

Happy shopping!

Find Your Match: Victoria's Secret's New Summer Angel Bra

Nude-hued bras usually have one huge problem: they rarely match anyone's actual skintone. As a super pale gal with pink undertones, I don't think I've ever owned a bra that came close to matching me. And I know I'm not alone!

So, when I saw Victoria's Secret's new Summer Angel Perfect Coverage Bra, I was intrigued. Not only does the bra look super comfy and perfect, as its name suggests, but it also comes in a wide variety of nude colors. I counted at least ten that could be considered a skintone color.

I just love this! Everyone deserves to own a nude bra that they can wear with everything and I'm loving that it's available in so many different colors!

Much like choosing a foundation shade, you can go through the different fabric swatches and find the best nude for you.

Below are all the color swatches the Summer Angel bra is currently available in:

That's quite a selection. Even the colors that aren't technically "nude" are still neutral enough to go with anything.

The bra itself also looks amazing. It utilizes a new ultra-light and breathable Air Secret technology that keeps you cool, which is perfect for the upcoming months of crazy humidity. Each bra also has support with soft-touch cups to make your shape look its sexiest and most flattering.

This is definitely a bra that all ladies should own.

You can purchase each one for $39.50, or buy two for $70. And we all know I'm a sucker for a deal, so I'll probably do a nude hue and Frosted Blueberry (the greyish blue tone that looks absolutely gorge).

Looking for a matching pair of panties? Of course you are! Victoria's Secret's Angel Hiphugger Panty comes in a few different nudes so you can have a set. Each pair is $10.50, or you can buy five for $28.

Happy shopping and enjoy finding your perfect match!

You Need This Now: Weleda Skin Food

You know it's springtime when I blog a bunch about my latest skincare products. I always feel like skin needs a jump start this time of year. If you're anything like me, season changes effect your skin. Living in New England can be hellish for that reason.

Your skin might not be as extremely sensitive and dry as mine is, but I'm guessing now is a great time to give it an extra boost.

The latest skincare product I've been using is Weleda Skin Food. This stuff is seriously amazing. I have to give credit to my mom on this one--she found out about the product, did the research, and even bought me a tube!

Skin Food is a unique, ultra-rich whole-body and face cream. I actually love using it on my face the most. It deeply hydrates, restores, and protects skin with nourishing plant oils and extracts. The essential fatty acids and vitamin E in organic sunflower seed oil take care of all your dry skin woes. Though it is a moisturizing cream, it does not clog pores or turn your face into a greasy acne party. I don't know how it's even possible for something to be this moisturizing without pore congestion. It's just magical!

The cream also works very quickly. You'll notice a difference in your skin's texture after the first use.

I honestly cannot say enough good things about Skin Food! It lives up to it's name. It's that essential. And trust me, you need a tube no matter what your skin type is.

Each tube retails for under $10. I would gladly pay double that for a product this good, so it's a great deal.

Keep your skin lookin' fabulous!

Looking For Some Super Cute Spring Sneakers?

I have to be honest--I'm completely obsessed with Maurice's. If you've read this blog before, you probably know that by now. I've always been a fan of their clothing and boots, but this season I'm absolutely loving their cute sneakers!

My top pick? The Macy Floral Print Canvas Sneakers.

Of course the pattern is what initially drew me in--as usual, floral prints are very in style for spring. The background of the pattern makes the shoes perfect to wear with jeans for the ultimate comfy, cool outfit.

The sneakers are canvas with an elastic-banded heel to keep them on. It's helpful for me, since my feet are so ridiculously small, but I imagine it would help anyone who is inbetween a size, or is just looking for that perfect fit.

But the best thing about these kicks is the fact that you don't even have to tie them! They slip right on and you're good to go. They're almost like a hybrid of a flat and a sneaker in that way.

Each pair is $24, which I think is perfect for a pair of sneakers to get your springtime look jumpstarted.

Happy Shopping!

Triple Mask Kits from Yes To For Under $4!

When springtime hits, I really like to spend some time getting my skin at it's healthiest. Gone are the days of dry, cracked skin (well, hopefully!), and after a little TLC, I know my skin will be looking fabulous, mostly thanks to the Yes To Mask Products.

My latest love from them is their Triple Masking Kit. It comes in a few different sets, but I personally love the one that helps calm, detox, and give a glowy boost. It's a great way to jumpstart your skincare routine and get everything feeling super smooth and healthy.

You can use these packs in a few different ways--either all at once, one at a time, or even use a dab at a time for spot treatment.

Of course I tried them all at once, and the result was amazing. My overly sensitive skin was not irritated at all by any of the masks, and it was left feeling soft and ready for anything!

Each of the kits retails for $3.99, but you're really getting three masks, so it's a pretty fantastic deal.

Make your skin happy and give these a try!
