Winter Florals: Dream vs Reality

Cold Ass Winter Florals

I’d love to tell you that I styled this bare legged because that’s truly the way I thought the dress looked its best, but nope. I wore cotton leggings underneath to stay warm! I made sure to snap some photos of how I preferred to style it for Christmas Eve versus how I actually wore it. Sometimes, I love styling cold weather looks and sometimes it really is a pain in my ass. I thought I would style this with brown suede boots, but I couldn’t even wear them because of the all the snow! Read More Β»

Bright Lips for Winter


Pop of Color

I partnered with Meijer to share a few ways to incorporate bold pops of color in your beauty routine this winter. See more over at Meijer Style!

If you wonder what I normally wear day-to-day–this is it! SURPRISE ITS ALL BLACK. And I love me some basic tees, sweaters and sweatshirts and elevating it a bit with a bold lipstick. It seems a little unexpected for me at least and makes it seem like a brand new look with a different lip color choice. Read More Β»

My Winter Skincare

Winter takes a toll on my skin and I partnered with Meijer to share a few of my go-to products to help with moisturizing, whether it’s all over body, lips or face.
The ever-nosy James was curious what I use for my dry, chapped lips. Combining the dry, winter air with my dry-prone lips (thanks to Accutane), I need something more intense to keep my lips moisturized. Cerave’s healing ointment works well on my dry elbows and lips. I top it off with Maybelline’s color sensational buff lipstick line in sin-a-mon. I love a matte lip, but this lipstick glides on and doesn’t dry out my lips.
Dove deep moisture body wash is by far my number one body wash choice. While my face is pretty oily, the rest of me in the winter is so damn dry. Because of eczema and just being dry, Jergen’s ultra healing body lotion is a great choice for all over moisture after a shower.
I keep Gold Bond’s eczema relief hand lotion on my nightstand since it’s when I’m in my underwear and notice all the eczema patches and dab this on. My thighs, upper arms and neck have been hit hard with eczema this winter, instead between my fingers as usual. This hand cream works great still.
I tested out Eucerin’s face moisturizer and I haven’t been using it long enough to make a strong statement either way, but I think it’s a little too heavy for my face even though it’s labeled as lightweight. I use Glossier’s moisturizer currently and it’s super light, but doesn’t have any SPF. I’m thinking I would actually prefer this product in the summer, when I’m likely to wear no foundation and a light tinted moisturizer.
Thank you for supporting collaborations such as this with Meijer!
