Edgy Look + J.Crew Labor Day Promo

Vest: Madewell (on sale) | Shirt: Old Navy (9 dollars) | Jeans: Madewell | Booties: Madewell | Bracelets: David Yurman, J.Crew | Earrings: J.Crew | Bag: Target

 Sometimes I like to go for an edgier look and this was one of those looks! I really wanted the J.Brand ripped black jeans but they are always sold out, so I found these cheaper Madewell alternatives and I'm very pleased with them! They look identical to the J.Brands and are high waisted, so they flatter your behind.  

Also! J.Crew is offering 30% off of $125 or more TODAY ONLY with code "24HOURS".







My Current Skin Care Regimen

I have found a simple and effective skincare regimen that just WORKS.  No fuss, nothing too expensive ... just results! 

Every Morning: I wash with my Kojic San Soap and pat my face dry.  I follow with my Vitamin C Serum and my Hyaluronic Acid Serum mixed together.  I then top it off with my sunscreen (which is seriously the best sunscreen ever). 

Every Evening: Every evening I wash with Cetaphil and then either skinstamp or apply retin-A.  I alternate nights on the skin stamping and the Retin-A.  Read below for the skin stamping routine. 

The Extras: I use my Mother-In-Law Jan's Real Raw Beauty Face Oil for removing my eye makeup (I swear it makes my eyelashes grow) and I LOVE her Mud Mask about once or twice a week.  All of her products are 10% off this Labor Day Weekend, so take advantage by shopping here


What is skin stamping you ask? Only the best thing ever.  I swear ever since I started doing this every other night my skin has completely changed.  It is smooth, it has less bumps, and I am noticing it's helping with hyper-pigmentation as well.


Never seen someone skin stamp before? Well I am here to show you what it's all about!


I got a Benev .8 mm Skin Stamp ... there are several different millimeters that you can get.  I'd recommend starting with .5 and moving up to 1.0.  There weren't many online when I looked, but this one from Amazon looks legit even though it's a little pricey. I skin stamp my whole face and then I always apply Hyaluronic Acid Serum right after followed by Avene Cicalfate to start to heal the microwounds.  

So that's what is working for me lately! I've never seen something change my skin quicker than this skin stamp has! And just to note, a skin stamp is very similar to a derma roller, but I think the skin stamp is more effective. 

Best of Labor Day 2014 Sales

There are a TON of sales going on this weekend and for a sale shopper like me, it can be a little overwhelming.  I have picked out the best sales of the Labor Day Weekend (in my opinion).  

Madewell: 30% off all Sale and 20% off Select Dresses & Boots 

My favorite boot, the Billie Boot is 20% off in all colors with code "YESYES".  I just wore these in a post last week and love them.  I find that they run big, so I'd order a half size down.  
This downshift dress is one of the many dresses that is 20% off.  This is the perfect transition dress into fall.

Mauve Skirt


Top: Madewell | Skirt: By Malene Birger (here as well)| Earrings: Design Darling | Shoes: Dolce Vita | Bracelets: David Yurman, J.Crew, & Loren Hope

I am absolutely in love with this blushy pink By Malene Birger skirt that I got this past weekend at the Shop Buru trunkshow.  

If you haven't checked out Shop Buru, please do! I knew of Morgan from like 6 degrees of Kentucky separation and love what she fills her online shop with.  She specializes in breast-feeding friendly clothing (and beyond), but honestly it's all cute and is great for all walks of life!
