Hi friends! Fancy seeing you here. Can you believe it’s 2018 already?? Craziness. There’s a tempest out here in the East Coast, and since we can’t venture out much without slipping and sliding or risking a frostbite, I hunkered down in my dorm room and compiled a collage of all the little things to get excited over these first few frigid months of the new year. Personally, smaller “feel good” luxuries really speak to me. I’m always down for a signature boutique candle or a piece of eclectic jewelry. For some people, it’s a spa day, a dinner at their favorite resto, or a Netflix binge under the covers. So if you’re finding it hard to make it through the first few days back at work/school, treat yourself (or at least feast your eyes!) on these online beauties… xx
Sharing a few of the skincare/beauty regimen products I’ve been loving recently… These products have vastly changed the way I take care of my skin and my daily regimen and even motivated me to be more consistent and proactive about cleansing and moisturizing. You might have noticed that I don’t wear much makeup, so most of the beauty products I review is/will be skincare. Even if you don’t wear makeup, cleansing is so important in getting rid of all the daily dirt and pollutants that end up on your face and clog pores. And as we go into the cooler, dryer months ahead, moisturizing will become increasingly crucial for hydration.

Starting a new section on my blog called “Fave Finds” where you can easily locate the products that I’m into right now. If you know me, you know I’m a product junkie. But I’m also very finicky and particular about what I like and dislike. I value quality but I am also a sucker for details like packaging, design, and colors. Fine craftsmanship does not go unnoticed with me 🙂 I’ll try to do this type of post once a month or at least once a season to share with you guys a roundup of my new finds. For this post, I chose a variety of products that I’ve been very much using and enjoying this summer..<3
Here they are!
Also..Huge shoutout to Coco & Duckie, the ultimate hotspot for curated luxury items, from stationery to jewelry to bath & body. A good number of the pieces from this post are from there because of my newfound love for this chic purveyor. It’s the little things that get me…
I neeeed iPhone cases that are protective and clear. Protective because my last case from Skinnydip (in pink and silver, but sold out) was honestly so beautiful, with floating stars and glitter (endless compliments and a great distraction at long and tedious school assemblies) but no bumpers 🙁 I cracked my phone three times with it on and ended up having to buy a new phone when the phone screen eventually shattered into a million pieces. So, there’s that. Transparency is needed, too– What is the point of getting the new rose gold color if I couldn’t even showcase (no pun intended) it. So, gocase became my new friend once I got a brand spanking new phone. It has cases that are not only clear, but have bumpers AND catchy designs. V v thankful for these phone cases, def going back for more.
This is so so handy. It’s true that its predecessor, The Fujifilm Instax 8, has a cool retro and vintage look to it and has therefore been a huge hit amongst the Polaroid-loving set but, let’s face it, it is a bit inconvenient compared to the SP-1. This one can print Polaroids right from your iPhone!! Now what is better than that…? Instead of trying to get the perfect shot at the most opportune moment (not to mention, you have to lug it around with you wherever you go), you can take as many pics as you want and print any photo, whenever, straight from your phone. Function trumps form, hands down.
