Daily Beauty Routine

Happy Saturday Lovelies! I hope your weekend is off to a great start! Any big plans for Mother’s Day tomorrow? Desperately needing last minute gift ideas?? I got you covered in this blog 

Anyways, I wanted to share with you some of my favorite beauty care items and how I use them in my daily routine.

First thing after I shower in the morning I wash my face with Mario Badescu’s Special Cucumber lotion. I’ve tried many of these facial cleansers from Mario but for some reason I feel like this one does the best clean for my oily/dry skin. It contains vitamins and minerals leaving your face feeling smooth and refreshed! Get it hereScreen Shot 2018-05-12 at 9.17.36 AM.png

The next step is to apply Origins’ Original Skin renewal serum. This stuff smells sooooo good! Plus it really is refreshing to the skin and leaves you extra glowy. A small amount will go a long way with this product. Try it out for yourself here

After my glow serum, I moisturize with Origin’s original skin Matte Moisturizer! I prefer a Matte moisturizer so my face isn’t left greasy and shiny…leave that to the highlight! The shiny part…not greasy ;] Same with this product, a small amount will go a long way. Shop for it here

Then I apply my makeup like normal and go about my busy busy day!

After a long day I will re-clean my face with Mario Badescu’s Cucumber lotion to get all of that makeup and dirt out of my pores. On average about Two times per week I will then exfoliate my face. Try Kate Somerville’s Intensive Exfoliating Treatment. I enjoy the smell of this one and it gets deep down in my pores and removes dead skin cells really well! Screen Shot 2018-05-12 at 9.18.55 AM.png

Last but certainly not least…I use Origins High-Potency Night-A-Mins cream. I received this as a sample and fell in LOVE! It is super hydrating. It is a night cream and slightly heavier than my day creams so I wouldn’t try wearing it throughout the day. Get it here Screen Shot 2018-05-12 at 9.18.10 AM.png

Let me know if you try out this products and what you think!

Rompers, Tassels, & Pom Poms OH MY!

IMG_9899 2.JPGSo if you read my last post you knew that I just went to Magnolia Market & Table! Well I wanted to do a separate blog just on my outfit. Earlier this month, I had posted a picture of a boutique purse & everyone commented on the romper the girl had on! I was shopping at Anthropologie with my boyfriend when I realized there was the romper everyone was asking about! I decided to try it on. Unfortunately they were out of smalls & mediums (my size). They had two XS & 2 Larges left! I went for it and thought MAYBE I could squeeze my way into an XS. Guess what?! They actually run a little loose and it fit perfectly!

IMG_9914 2.JPGThis Texas Weather is ALL over the place lately and I had been waiting weeks to wear this romper. Finally the day was Sunny with a high of 84 and I could bring this beauty out! I paired it with my also new wedges from months ago that I bought from Chloe. Walking in Wedges all day sure did give my legs a nice workout…I am sore this morning haha. I chose to pair the outfit with some cute accessories! My Maldives Bag from Brinisity Boutique & Some pretty statement earrings from Neiman Marcus..on SALE! IMG_9641.JPG.jpeg

Magnolia Table

Hello Lovelies! I hope everyone had a fantastic weekend. Whether you were partying it up at Coachella or just chilling at home with the dog! I decided to take a fun little day trip to Waco, Tx and experience Magnolia Table & Market with my Mother and Sister-in-law. We live near Dallas, Tx so the drive was a little over two hours and we decided to go on a Monday since it would most likely be less chaotic.IMG_9914.JPG

After what seemed like FOREVER in the car we arrived at Magnolia Table for lunch. Since the restaurant only serves breakfast & lunch be sure to plan your day there accordingly. The place is ADORABLE! They have cute plants everywhere, of course and a take out place for those who want to take the goods home. They also have a cute little outdoor waiting area with cafe tables and a coffee, pastry, & juice bar (just incase your wait is hours long). They offered kids tic tac toe stone boards & offered some Texas Trivia to hangry customers whose table wasn’t quite ready yet. When we checked in at the hostess stand we thought there could be a wait with the number of people outside, but we could also tell that there was a lot of seating inside.

IMG_9903.JPG

The hostess stated it would be a 2.5 hour wait! That is on a Monday guys! They say if you get to Magnolia Table on the weekend and don’t check in by 11am chances are you won’t be able to eat there for the day. The cut off for a Monday was 1PM. I would hate to see you drive all the way there just for them to turn you away.  The restaurant closes at 3PM & that is the estimated time we would get to eat. They offered it to go by faster if we sat with a community table and so we agreed. They also send text updates in real time offering a chance to see how many parties are in front of you and your estimated wait time, I really enjoyed this feature. I didn’t notice it at first so when they send you a text make sure to click the link and this will take you to the page.  To pass the time we took a tour, bought a snack (the chocolate croissant was the best one I had ever had), took some pictures, answered some trivia questions, & well waited.  IMG_9913.JPG

Honestly, we should have just taken the trolley to the Magnolia Market and came back to the restaurant. I suggest doing this if your wait time in more than an hour or so. They offer transport there and back and it doesn’t take hours to shop their market. The market is cute with home goods, bath essentials, & apparel. There is a yummy cupcake bakery that you could stop at and take one to go for after you eat….or before! There is a large grass square with food trucks, seating, & swings. This is a really great place to come hang out on the weekend with your family. Of course I don’t live in Waco so it would be a bit of a drive for me. The last thing they had was a really cute garden with a seed shop. This is where I bought the cutest little mister for my succulents! There are definitely some unique finds at the Magnolia Market, so if you get a chance I suggest a day trip. The weekday is best since it is less crowded & they are closed on Sundays so don’t try to drive up there or you will be very disappointed. P.S. We almost did this! IMG_9911.JPGIMG_9912.JPG

Back at the Magnolia Table we were luckily sat at an individual booth (no community tables for us!). We started with some lemon lavender donut holes, buttermilk biscuit, sweet bacon, & deviled eggs with jalapeño drip jam! I will say all four of these items were the bomb! The next thing I tried were the tater tots and I have to say I wasn’t a fan. They were like a mix of shredded has browns and mashed potatoes. This combination sounds amazing, however I just wasn’t impressed.

Overall It was a fun experience! I am not sure I will be going back to the Magnolia Table anytime soon just because of the drive & wait time. But I would definitely  go again!

Britt

Hello Gorgeous!

Why Hello there gorgeous girl!IMG_9175

Today’s look consists of a perfectly light weight top featuring the graphic “Hello Gorgeous!” written across the front (Here), super comfy motto jeggings (Here), $30 Lulu heels, & of course a Stella & Dot clutch!

Don’t you love spring? Tulips, Warmer Weather, Sun Shining, Summer approaching close behind, & of course Spring Break! I however did not take a spring break this year, don’t feel bad for me. I was busy building my online boutique which is just as fun for me!

Purple Tulips? Wish they were pink! They were out (Drat!). Anyways, how to get that comfy, cool, and perfect transitional piece for spring? Look no further!

The hello gorgeous top is the perfect light weight top for those cool spring days, but won’t make you sweat in those warmer spikes either. If you are a Texas girl like me, you’ll know what I mean! Although the top is slightly shear, I have paired it with a free people bandeau that you see peeking through.

The Motto Jeggings are AMAZING! Comfy & They look like jeans?! Perfect Combo for the comfy yet stylish gal, like myself. They feature an ankle zipper for extra flare.

I use to be one of those girls who wore heels ALL OF THE TIME! Then I realized i would rather be comfortable so I stopped wearing heels, but still hoarded them as if some day I would wear them again. Well, now I believe I have found a happy medium. These heels may only be $30, but LuLu knows their stuff, these babies are super comfy and I was waltzing around town in them for a few hours without a bother.

Last on the list, but certainly not least is this adorable Stella & Dot Clutch! So I use to sell S&D and this was one of the items i received. It adds something to the entire outfit, don’t you think?

Perfect Brunching outfit If i do say so myself! Drooling over these pieces? Links are provided above!

 

Cheers Babes!

XOXO,
