May and June Favorites 2018 - What I have been loving lately!

Hey hey sweetie pies! Things have started to pick up a bit around these parts. I have been really busy with teaching and working on a few dance things here and there. Plus with personal endeavors, your girl has barely had time to slow down! I have had the chance however to dive into some new products and such over the past two months. A few skin products as well as a lot of music! If you are interested in hearing what products that I have been digging lately, then keep reading!

Estee Lauder Advanced Night Repair
Major shout out to my Nana for putting me on to this product! I initially got this product in a gift set. I love using this product at night as my final product on my face. If you are interested in seeing a night time routine let me know! I have morning routine that I shared back in the Spring, you can read all about my updated morning routine there. On most days I am not wearing makeup so I am trying to take special care of my face so that it can look its best - au naturale!

MAMBI Value Pack Stickers "Student"
Even though I am not a student anymore there is one reason why I DEFINITELY had to get this sticker book! Two words - UNICORN STICKERS! There are two full sheets lined with unicorn stickers which makes me extremely happy! Plus it has so many other gorgeous stickers from quotes to donuts. The color scheme is super colorful with a few holographic stickers in there as well. Super fun and great for youth and adult planners!

Found Face Masks
I got these at Walmart for like $2.50 I believe and I am obsessed! I love how convenient they are. They are sheet masks that you put and leave on for about 15 minutes and then you mssage the product into your skin! It is perfect for me when I have those super long dance days and I am too lazy to wash my face off. I know it sounds bad but it be like that sometimes!

OPI Top Coat
I know this one is an oldie but definitely a goodie for the best reasons! I have been doing my nails naturally for a few months now. I have been enjoying doing my own nails again and shopping for nail polish. I love using this top coat it works so well for my nails and makes my manicure last. It will always be in my top 3!

**I received samples courtesy of Derive Colognes to review. Even though these samples were given for my boyfriend David and I to review, all opinions are our own.**
As some of you may know I suffer from eczema. I first noticed I had eczema as a child and was able to keep it pretty much under control. Within the past 2-3 years it has begun to rear it's ugly head again. With all of the smog, the sweating, the heat, the stress, the fragrances and a number of other factors - it has ignited my eczema to where it is hard to use a lot of my favorite things. One of which is perfume. I love smelling good plus it helps to lift my mood. I usually prefer to spray it on my wrist and behind my ears but had to stop doing that. I then resulted to misting it on my clothes but that still would irritate my…

Hey hey sweetie pies! Today's post is a look that I have had in heavy rotation. I mean we all have that "no fail" outfit that we love to wear any and everywhere. It is super comfy and you still look put together. I opted for this cotton, slightly oversized button down and dark wash fitted jeans. I love wearing it with sandals for daytime, heels for nighttime and sneakers for weekend. For the daytime, I pretty much style it like I have here. I have just wore the shirt as is with my jeans cuffed. I paired it with this conv…
