new sunnies…

While I was in Long Beach I stopped by the Francesca’s on second street and invested in a cute pair of sunglasses. Not so much an investment because they we actually the best deal… I got the floral sunglasses case half off too!

Though I may miss the ocean more than ANYTHING, today was incredibly warm here in Albuquerque. I guess Mother Nature finally heard me 😉

Today was the perfect day for this cute little floral skirt. My sister Maddie gave it to me a while back and it’s the comfiest thing. I though pairing it with my brown booties made for a cute yet functional look. Hopefully the weather will continue to allow skirts!

What are some of your favorite warm weather outfits? Let me know, I’ll be out shopping soon!

sun rays…

Yesterday was my last day in California. I’m so sad to be leaving this morning, I’ve never been so happy to spend time in such a pretty town. 

The week I spent in Long Beach was beautiful! There were clear blue skies almost all week and I couldn’t have been more spoiled my entire stay. 

I spent my time on the water most of the time so I tried to dress simply This black romper I had in my closet was the perfect cover up. It was light and airy and easy to pull on and off. Plus, who doesn’t love a cute romper?

Personally, my favorite part of al my looks was my hat. What’s reeeeally crazy was it was just a quick pick up at the Rite Aide in 2nd Street when I was buying sunscreen! The best funds are the random ones. 

What are your favorite sunny styles? Comment below!

boardwalk + greys…

The past few days, I’ve had the best time exploring Long Beach and all the areas around it. 

Yesterday I spent my time in downtown Long Beach walking around the pier browsing all the shops along the marina. I rented a little bike and ride around the sidewalks. 

It was HOT yesterday. Usually there is a slight breeze coming off the water, but it was burning. This dress was perfect for the weather. It was light and flowing. Even better was it was a $10 find at Forever21 a few years back. I’m not sure who said Forever21 didn’t have quality products, but I am always a happy customer!

What have you been up to this week? If you’re a California local, have you enjoyed the clear skies?? I know I have!

Hope you all have a relaxing Monday 🙂

beach vibes…

Happy weekend and happy spring break to those of you enjoying this week off! I myself am soaking up the sun in Long Beach, CA.

It’s been years since I’ve been on a beach and when a good friend of mine offered to vacation with me I was so over the moon! Leaving the 40 degree weather for the mid 80s here was a great decision, but not only that but the sky has been so clear. I’ve been so blessed to have come out at such a perfect time.

Today I spent the entire day on the water. I headed to the beach this morning then later hopped on a boat and cruised around the Marina. It was incredible. 

I had on a little sun dress I purchased from Forever21 last year. I hadn’t worn it too much until now, it worked as a perfect cover up. Even more importantly were my sandals I got from Target a couple of days ago. I love the black strappy look and I’m so happy that Target had this style. 

What are your plans for this break? I’d love to hear from you all!

my look: skin care…

Skin care is incredibly important to me due to the fact that I have incredibly dry skin. For years I’ve searched for the perfect skin products. Within the past few months, I’ve found the best products for me and I thought I would share!

Processed with Moldiv

Aveeno Clear Complexion Daily Moisturizer – I use this moisturizer most of the time on my face because a lot of the other “fancier” moisturizers dry my face out! this one keeps my skin feeling soft.

Covergirl TruBlend Liquid Makeup – I wear Natural Ivory because my skin is so fair. This is the first part of my makeup routine and I must say it really helps with keeping my skin tone even. I like it so much because it doesn’t feel like it is just coated on my skin.

Estee Lauder ‘Perfectly Clean’ Foam Cleanser/Purifying Mask – This is my favorite face wash I’ve ever used. It’s a little more pricey than most of the products I use, but it works so well so it’s completely worth it. 

Seacret Salt and Oil Scrub – This scrub was given to me as a gift. It’s made from the minerals found in the Dead Sea. I use it every now and then in the shower to scrub my heels. It keeps them feeling soooo soft and it smells just as great.

Neutrogena Makeup Remover Cleansing Towelettes – These towelettes are possibly the greatest thing I’ve ever purchased. They truly work like a magic makeup eraser. It makes my face cleaning process so much simpler. If you have not tried these I strongly suggest you give them a go!!

Estee Lauder ‘Advanced Time Zone Day Wrinkle Cream – I use this moisturizer every now and then in unison with the Advanced Time Zone night cream. I don’t struggle with wrinkles (yet) but I figured why not fight them now!

L’Oreal Sublime Bronzer – This bronzer is great if you are looking for a quick color to your skin. I’ve been using the Jergens Gradual Tanner, but like the title says, it’s gradual. This one works immediately and looks great for just a quick color.

Aveeno Skin Relief Body Wash – I don’t like to use scented body washes because my skin is so sensitive so this one is great. It helps with my dry skin and helps it to feel soft and moisturized. It doesn’t leave any residue behind.

NIVEA Extended Moisture Body Lotion – I swear by this body lotion. I absolutely love Nivea products and this lotion works perfectly for my skin. It doesnt clog my pores and keeps my skin feeling fresh and clean.

What products do you like to use? I’d love to hear!
