What’s in my travel skincare bag?

Insta-worthy Wire Wall Grids & New Spooky Room Decor

I’m always checking instagram for new room decor ideas and fun projects to do. That’s when I saw these amazing wire wall grids from Urban Outfitters for $50! I created my own wire wall grids for a fraction of the price, and I can now interchange my wall art without dealing with messy tape or nails in the wall! Purchase these wall grids from Amazon for $14 each!

Adding unique artwork or seasonal decor to your walls is super easy! Search the dollar section of target for cute mini clothespins to hang up your favorite pictures or art. Of course, I always have to add my own spooky touch to my room decor so I searched Pinterest for cool halloween inspired gallery wall prints.

Spooky Room Decor Ideas

Life Hack: Buy paint in your favorite aesthetic colors in order to update some old decor and make it fresh and new!

I purchased some black and blush paint from Michael’s Craft Store and decided to search my garage for old items I could turn into expensive looking room decor items! During my garage exploration I came across an old bird cage that I turned into a cool spooky candle holder with some black paint!

The second item I found while searching the garage was a small silver tray from the dollar tree! Stacking my favorite coffee table books underneath the tray, I created another cute candle display!

Skincare Routine | Daytime

Skincare Routine | Daytime

I’ve simplified my daytime skincare routine over the years, because I usually let my coffee cool as I’m applying these products. BASICALLY I like a routine that’s short and simple so I can get back to sipping my coffee and applying my makeup! I have combination skin– oily T-zone and dry everywhere else– and these products have worked really well for me!

Su:m 37 Miracle Rose Cleansing Stick- I’ve fallen in love with this product! It lasts so long and is easy to travel with because it’s a solid formula! The cleansing stick never dries my skin out and the rose petals in the formula lightly exfoliates! 

Pixi Glow Tonic– I’m very prone to breakouts because of my combination skin, and I feel as though I haven’t had any in a while thanks to this toner! I just apply this on a cotton pad and rub it on my face focusing on my T-zone. The smell is also heavenly and is very refreshing in the morning. The glycolic acid in the formula helps exfoliate lightly and helps prep for my moisturizer.

Burt’s Bees Day Lotion– I’ve recently discovered this moisturizer and so far I really love it! However, because of the spf 15 there is a white cast when you first apply it to your face. If you continue to rub this product into your skin the white cast tones down and doesn’t look as ghostly. My CC cream has spf 50 so I feel as though the spf 15 in this product is perfect for me.

Pixi Hydrating Milky Mist– When my skin is feeling pretty dry, I like to mist this either before my moisturizer or before and after my makeup. I’ve been obsessed with face mists and love to refresh my skin with them throughout the day! 

Evan Healy Wild Carrot Eye Balm– I love the formula of this product, and again I love how it’s so easy to travel with because it’s a solid formula! I typically put this under my eyes and in other areas that are prone to wrinkles like my smile line areas and forehead. I find that it’s a perfect base for undereye concealer, which is why I like to use it during the daytime!

 

Stay tuned for my current nighttime skincare routine! I’d love to hear about your routine as well so leave yours in the comment section below!

Mini Guide to the Power of Essential Oils

Mini Guide to the Power of Essential Oils

One of my favorite parts of my daily routine is diffusing essential oils. At first, I was so confused about how they actually work and just imagined them being a replacement for candles. But, in my opinion, aromatherapy is so real and relaxes/motivates/de-stresses me! Here are […]
