Stylish Fall Skincare Essentials

While I am sure many of you can relate, I have dealt with acne since I was probably 10 years old. Even at 26 I still deal with it. While it might be less than it was as a teenager it is something I deal with and something I honestly cannot stand. I wish it would be go away, but it is what it is. I have very sensitive skin so I have to be really careful about what I use on it as nearly anything can break it out. I am not someone who uses like a load of products, I actually keep it pretty simple but there are certain products that I use daily and are a staple in my bathroom. When I say simple I really mean simple like four steps.  I thought with fall in full swing what was more perfect than sharing my skincare must haves. 

1. Olay Fresh Effects S'Wipe Out Facial Wipes - I'll admit I have gotten lazy in the past and just skip this step and go directly to washing it and the next morning I pay for it. After putting mascara and eyeliner on sometimes my face wash just doesn't get the little bitty pieces of mascara stuck to my eye (no offense face wash) so I started using these amazing facial wipes and poof that issue was gone. I am obsessed with these, they smell SO good and get the job done! 

2. Bliss Fabulous Foaming Face Wash - This product is amazing. I have been using it for more than 4 years now and my face absolutely loves it. It's perfect for getting off makeup and you don't need to use a lot to get the job done. 

3. Olay Fresh Effects Hydrating Gel Moisturizer - okay when I found out this stuff was discontinued I about cried. I went through like a million moisturizers and all of them left my oily and sticky. This one is amazing. It's hydrating and smells amazing. Luckily Amazon still has it so I snag it from there!

4. Exuviance Overnight Recovery Mask - This is my newest find and I honestly have no idea how I've gone this long without it. This mask is downright amazing. It's basically an anti-pollution complex that has lilac cell extract and it helps your skin against environmental damage. It's perfect for any skin type and is so soothing and refreshing I wish I could keep it on forever. 

Voila! I really don't think it could get any simpler than that? What are your skincare must haves. Share in the comments! Hope everyone has a stylish weekend!

So until next time... Live Stylishly

Stylish Fall Must Have: The Perfect Cardigan

1 // 2 // 3 // 4 // 5 // 6 // 7 // 8 

To continue from yesterday's post of comfort I just cannot get enough of comfort pieces that are chic. I wish I could live in cardigans because they are so easy to throw on over any outfit and are the perfect accessory for those of us who run freezing and are always cold! With my upcoming trip to NYC and the weather sort of unknown, cardigans are like the perfect thing to pack for when I am not sure about the weather! They also come in all sizes (literally) I am currently loving the oversized and long cardigans. You might remember this cardigan I snagged from the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale, but I decided to scour the web for more options that are perfect for my trip and the rest of the fall and winter season! Are you a huge cardigan fan, which do you prefer short, long or extra long? Hope y'all are having the best week, we are halfway there!

Stylish Outfit: Chic Comfort

cabi Top // Blank NYC Jeans // Sam Edelman Wedges // Rocksbox Necklace (similar) // Susu Clutch (similar

I often realize with a closet full of clothes I frequently resort to whatever looks comfortable. Now I am one of those people who thinks jeans are comfortable so they are pretty much a staple in my wardrobe but when it comes to tops, I am always for a great basic pullover or comfy top that really requires little effort. So naturally when I came across this cabi top I was instantly sold. This top is legit the most comfortable shirt ever, I only wish they had it in multiple colors. I also love the fact that its a tad longer in the back making it extra cozy! I paired it with my favorite distressed jeans and paired these Sam Edelman wedges for a perfect SoCal fall look. Now going  back to cabi, some of you may laugh and think I am so late to the game but I was introduced to this brand late last year through my mom and my best friend's mom and after months of eying pieces I finally snagged a piece from the fall collection. If you haven't heard of cabi, check them out they are amazing! Anywho, enough of me rambling! Hope y'all is having a fab Tuesday!

Stylish Fall 2016 Trend: Velvet

The word cancer hits very close to home as I have lost several family members to it. Breast cancer has not directly affected me personally, but I have seen many close friends encounter it and any way I can help is key for me. As I mentioned earlier this month, October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month and there are so many different ways you can help the fight against this heartbreaking disease. I have partnered up with some fellow bloggers, PopSugar Inc, the Council of Fashion Designers of America (CFDA) and the CFDA's Fashion Targets Breast Cancer initiative to help raises funds and public awareness for breast cancer in the U.S. and internationally. From October 17th through the 23rd, 50% of all the sales made from this specific post will go directly towards the CFDA's foundation! It gets even better, PopSugar Inc will match all those sales from the links $1 for $1 and also make a separate $5,000 donation. Philanthropy and Fashion have intertwined and you see SO many huge brands giving back in their own way in many different ways. Growing up, I was very much a lover of giving back to my community and as an adult with work, family and friends it can be hard to find the time to give back. This is the perfect way to give back and it's something I do already! Since fall is in full spring, I thought what better than to share a seriously hot fall trend, velvet! You might remember velvet being hot a few years ago but it is back and better than ever! I scoured the web for some of my favorite velvet items that are a must for any wardrobe! Hope everyone had a great weekend!
