This June gloom here in LA has been a major bummer. So I have decided to become my own little bit of sunshine by wearing bright colors like this yellow sundress that I bought at Ross for $15. Yes, you read that right, $15 dollars. If you are willing to take your time and go through the racks and racks of clothes, you can indeed find a steal like this one or the color-block dress I wore a while back. I’ve found more affordable yellow dresses for you here, here and here!
This floral embellished bag has been on serious repeat. You would be surprised how many outfits this bag goes with. It also comes in black which is pretty cool. I have my eye on this black crossbody bag next. I mean…how can I resist?!

It has been some time since I’ve done a beauty review! I am excited about this particular post because it revolves around the latest and greatest moisturizer that I have been using to fight dry skin.
About a year ago I started noticing my daily creams and beauty regime were just not doing enough for my skin. I was getting dry, flaky patches all round my face and neck. It was embarrassing to say the least and super frustrating that it occurred everyday no matter what I did. I spent countless hours trying new products and researching the best products for dry skin. I changed my diet, increased my water intake, and even slept with a humidifier on every night. Everything I could think of, I tried.
Even if I globbed on a super thick night cream, my skin would still feel dry when I woke up in the morning. It was as if my skin had soaked-up the product like a sponge and was thirsty for more. That is until recently…
I started using the Cell Renew Hydro-Plus Overnight Moisturizer about a month ago. It was the first moisturizer I have found that finally gives me soft and hydrated skin! The dryness has greatly subsided and my skin no longer feels dehydrated first thing in the morning. The ingredients in this moisturizer are shown to increase skin hydration by over 15% in 4 hours! I normally use it as a night cream, so imagine the hydration when you leave it on for a full 8 hours!
The formula contains time-released hyaluronic acids that hyrdates and plumps (why do we love the word plumps when it comes to skin care? lol) Over a course of 4 weeks, the imperata cylindrica extract increases skin moisture by 35%! Although we would love to forget about wrinkles, they are inevitable. The sesame seed extract decreases wrinkle depth by 10% and lip wrinkle volume by 22%. Making it perfect for an all-over-your-face moisturizer.
Stemology is the world’s first and only eco-aware, stem cell based skincare line that’s clinically proven to restore aging skin. Their products have an all-natural formula and use stem cell technology for efficacious formulas and results. With the results I’ve experienced from their Overnight Moisturizer, I am very curious to trying out their Cell Revive Serum and Moisture Complete products.

Happy First day of summer everyone! And boy is it a hot one. It is supposed to be 106 here in Los Angeles. Just the thought makes me want to jump in a pool of cool blue water. All weekend everyone kept complaining how hot it was. In my mind, all I could think was it’s about freaking time summer showed up! My summer wardrobe has been waiting for this weather! Ask me in 3 months how I feel about the heat. I may or may not change my mind.
For hot days like this, I prefer loose fitting dresses like this striped shift dress. It is lightweight and comfortable. I can throw on a sweater if it gets cool. Plus, it is easy to dress up for work with some nude sandals and a neutral tote.
A special thank you to everyone who entered the desk makeover giveaway! We have a winner!
