Break Up with your makeup



Hi everyone! I hope you're having a great day so far. Today we are taking a break from fashion and switching over to talk about skin and makeup. An interesting question to ask yourself is, "why do we wear makeup?" Some wear it to even out skin tone, coverup acne, hide dark circles, reduce redness, for special occasions, to express ourselves and be creative; the list goes on and on. Another interesting and personal question to ask yourself is, "when was the last time you went an entire day without makeup?" If I was asked this question a few years ago, I would have a hard time answering because makeup was apart of my daily routine, like brushing my teeth and taking a shower. As I have gotten older, more confident, and comfortable in my own skin, I have been wearing less and less makeup to where most days I wear little to no makeup. 

I encourage you to start to accept your imperfections and realize that there is no need to cover them up. No one is perfect and accepting your unique features will make you amazingly different and special! And that positive outlook will spillover to many other parts of your life! Such as work, school, social life, family. etc. Plus, this is a step towards good health practices because a makeup free day allows your skin to breath. It also opens up time in your morning routine for a quick workout, cooking breakfast, etc. Breaking up with your makeup is definitely a win win situation!

Downtown Sydney #OOTD



This is my first look from my Australia vacation! We spent many days wondering around the city, dining in small local restaurants, and soaking in the culture. This look is a laid back comfortable chic look and I adore my new GiGi New York Taylor tote because it held everything I needed. (this included many water bottles!) Considering that it was Winter in Sydney, the temperatures were amazing! I comfortably walked around in this sleeveless top and carried a light jacket for the evening. Hope you like this look! :)

Comfortable in Macaroons and Espridrilles


Happy Friday the 13th! I'm not a superstitious person, but if you are, be extra cautious and careful. :) I'm back in the Bay Area after a week and a half long vacay to Australia, thanks to everyone for the tips on where to go and what to do. I had an amazing time with family, snorkeling, seeing wildlife, and exploring. With that said, being jet-lagged and exhausted I went for a comfortable look today. I brought back one of my favorite tees to brighten up the look and compliment my espadrilles and bracelets. And let me add those espadrilles are so so so comfortable! I already have the blue and white ones in my shopping cart. ;) Have an amazing weekend! xox
