Everyday Beauty Basics


If you have been following a long for a while, you know I love my beauty buys. My favorite beauty buys make up my every day basics – these are products that I simply cannot live without!! Insert dry shampoo, a daily cleanser, eye cream, night cream, a serum, face wipes, perfume, eye liner, bronzer and so forth. You catch my drift, right? But I’m not kidding.. when I run out of these products, I slightly freak out. I either get on Amazon or go to the nearest CVS to stock up. Because I use these products every single day, I try to stock up on many as possible so when I do run out – I have back up. My Mom can certainly attest to this, right Mom!?!? All hell breaks loose when we run out of face wipes whenever I’m back home in Cleveland (because my Mom and I both use them so much). So when I recently was introduced to JĀSÖN’s Gentle Basics Facial Cleansing Towelettes, I was so excited. A new face wipe that is gentle on my skin but is easily able to remove make up.


One thing I have mentioned time and time again on the blog is that I am not a fan of washing my face. Of course I know how important it is for my skin and I force myself to do it every single night but you know there are some nights when I can’t bring myself to do it. These are when face wipes are CRUCIAL. I don’t feel as bad when I wake up in the morning and at least know I used a cleansing towel to remove my make up the night before. After getting hooked on JĀSÖN’s Gentle Basics Facial Cleansing Towelettes, I was inclined to try their entire line. I absolutely loved their facial cleanser and night cream. Two every day basics that I have easily rotated into my daily beauty routine. I think why I have become such a huge fan of this line is because it’s not harsh on my skin, it’s free from all of those nasty chemicals and ingredients, it’s hypoallergenic (perfect for those with sensitive skin), plus you can’t beat how affordable the entire line is. Done and done.

What are some of your everyday beauty basics?

Step Into Spring


Nothing says spring like a new pair of colorful spring heels. Last week I shared my must-have items out of J.Crew’s new spring arrivals. Of course many of their new shoe arrivals made the cut. Although I am a huge proponent of shopping online these days, I did stop by the J.Crew on 5th Ave over the weekend after Pure Barre and saw their entire shoe collection in person. I have to say it’s SO good, I’m dedicating a another blog post to it. While perusing around the store, I saw one of the girls who works at J.Crew rocking the first pair – a color block heel with a little pop of fringe on top. If I were to buy one pair out of the three I would chose the top. However, the second and third are very close runner ups. I love the navy and white striped heels to go along with the 100 striped tops and sweaters I have in my closet. I’d imagine they’d look great with white ripped denim or a flirty skirt. The pink and glittered mosaic heels are also so fun and pretty in person. These days a chunky heel is the only thing I can / want to wear so these spring heels fit the bill.
