Wet N Wild Spring 2017 | Review + Swatches

I’m baaaaaaack! I can’t believe that literally in the past 3 weeks and during the midst of the holiday madness, I finally moved to Austin, TX! I’m finally all settled in and incredibly relieved that I don’t have anything pressing constantly on my to-do lists. In the meantime, I’ve been trying some new drugstore goodies that are out for the spring season. One of the most anticipated products that I was looking forward to was the Wet N Wild Photofocus Foundation. Having already tried their primer from the Photofocus line and loving it, I was eager to get my hands on this baby. As soon as I settled into my new home, I grabbed my keys and drove to the nearest Walgreens in hopes that they would have my shade. Keep reading for more on what I picked up from the Wet N Wild Spring 2017 launches!

Wear High Knee Boots Without a Sweat

Am I the only one in this world that overheats like crazy in thick sweaters and coats? Regardless if it’s freezing outside, I’ll do my due diligence to stay warm with a heavy coat or jacket. Underneath is another story. I don’t usually do long sleeves, but I’ll do a thicker short sleeve or sleeveless top to prevent myself from breaking a sweat from the heavy layers. When I found this sweatshirt, I fell completely head over heels for the material. It’s light and thin, but because it’s lined with fleece it keeps me warm when I’m outside! Paired with some knee-high boots and this became one of my more effortless chic and cozy looks for the season! Keep reading for more on how I wore these knee high boots without a sweat!

Sporty Casual for the Fall

Sporty Casual for Fall

In my last fashion post I showcased one of my favorite casual outfits perfect for late night study sessions. Today, I’m stirring around the same pot, just on another level of comfort. Sporty chic, daytime casual or athleisure, whatever you call it just know that it’s comfy as hell. One of the best things about reaching this level of comfort is the benefits of no frills. No need to worry about accessorizing or thinking too much about bringing your outfit together. Keep it sleek and minimal and you’re on your way to a perfect sporty casual for the fall look.

My Favorite Skincare Products (Oily + Acne Prone)

favorite skincare products for oily and acne prone skin

Has anyone’s skin gone haywire from the sudden weather changes in Houston? It’s been taking a toll on mine, but thankfully, my everyday skincare routine has helped with getting it under control. Ever since I could remember, I’ve had acne and extremely oily skin. It has always been a gift and a curse. For one, I never had to worry about dry, itchy skin during the winter but the summers were always miserable. As for my acne, that eventually went away and now I only deal with it at a very minimal-scale during times of high stress or during extreme shifts in the weather. Although my acne is not as bad as it used to be, the only way I can maintain it is by using my favorite skincare products. Keep reading to learn more about my skin care routine perfect for oily and acne-prone skin!
