#ChooseSkinHealth with Neutrogena

Beauty/ Skin Care

As you all know, I am a licensed Esthetician. I have trained and practiced in the field for over 3 years and have been around skin my whole life seeing as how my Mother is an Esthetician as well. Being in the field of beauty and skin care the one main regret I see from my clients is that they wished they had protected their skin against sun exposure more when they were younger.
When Neutrogena approached me with their #ChooseSkinHealth campaign, I knew I was on board and wanted to share this video with you all. Basically I’m here to remind you al that summer is not over and the risk is real. Being diligent about sun safety is as important as ever. The above video features NYC dermatologist, Dr. Joshua Zeichner, who shares pertinent information on how to best protect ourselves & our families from the sun. It’s a total must see!!

On behalf of the #ChooseSkinHealth campaign I want to remind you all that sunscreen is safe and necessary. By educating ourselves & one another, together, we can end the summer on a safe note! Love you all!!

Sleeveless Dress | Summer Vibes

Sleeveless Dress: GEORGE LOVES // Belt: Linea Pelle // Bag: Rebecca Minkoff (ON SALE!) // Sunnies: ZeroUV

Alright guys, forgive the hair today – there was just no taming it for this look. Headed to the beach for this look and of course when I need my hair to cooperate, it truly never does. Anyways, for today’s look I went with this awesome GEORGE LOVES sleeveless button dress which features a basic collar and a button-down front. It truly is a great summer dress to throw on without any fuss as I have, above.

I also want to mention, this Rebecca Minkoff  cross body bag that I wear ALL the time is on major sale right now at the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale. Considering how much use I get out of this bag, I would purchase it all over again in a heartbeat. It’s just that great.

Hope you guys are making it through your hump day ok!

Fringe Booties – Back to School

You guys know I have a slight obsessed with Payless shoes, right?! I wear them pretty regularly and can’t even begin to explain how comfortable they – and totally affordable.

Plus their styles are so stinkin adorable!

When I saw these fringe booties I knew I had to have them immediately. Fringe has been SO in and to have a little of that detailing ton my booties made me jump for joy. Even though it’s been on the warmer side lately, they are perfect to wear out at night and going to be a staple in the coming fall months. For those of you headed back to school these are it as well! They are SO comfortable, have a teenie heel (which I love) and go with virtually everything.

The look above is pretty much a reflection of my personal everyday style. Distressed denim, half tucked in top and ankle booties. On a cooler evening, I’d even top off the look with a denim jacket and I think it makes for a really nice combination.

If you guys are headed back to school make sure to check out the rest of Payless’ amazing selections! I swear they are so comfortable, I add to my collection almost every month – plus, I don’t have to feel the least bit guilty about it!!

This is a sponsored conversation written by me on behalf of Payless via RhythmOne. The opinions and text are all mine.

Black Leather

Wow this weekend went way too fast right!? I mean, I guess they always do. With this crazy hot weather we have been having I have been trying to soak it all up. I spent yesterday at the beach with a friend and it was so nice! Sometimes I forget how nice it is to just lay there listening to the waves crashing and literally do nothing! I have to admit – it’s hard for me but I’m pushing myself to do it – for my own sanity! I cannot believe how crazy it was though! People everywhere literally. I mean, I know its summer but this was out of control. I guess we all got the memo that the place to be was at the beach – hey, I don’t mind!

For today’s look I went for a black leather look. I love this black leather jacket from Tommy Hilfiger and although it’s been a bit on the warmer side, a jacket like this really never goes out of style so I can’t wait to start wearing it more when the weather cools down a bit. I mean, black leather jackets are so key to anyone’s wardrobe closet, lets be honest. You can go for a rocker chic look or a full on glam look with leather jacket which I love. It’s classic, never goes out of style AND keeps you SUPER warm for those cooler months.

Linen Blazer at the Beach

Happy Friday everyone! Boy did this week feel long or what?! TGIF is right. On top of it, words can’t even begin to describe how hot it has been. Thank goodness for air conditioning because I’d probably pass out. With this super hot weather means I have been spending a LOT of time at the beach and pool and although today’s post is not a swimsuit post, it doesn’t mean I’m not spending time near the ocean in my usual attire. For starters, being by the coast typically means its about 10 degrees cooler than where I live so lately I’ve been all about it.

For today’s look I’m wearing one of my all time fav brands you guys know – Tommy Hilfiger of course! I seriously can’t get enough of Tommy. It’s actually pretty bad since I literally want absolutely everything they have on their website in my closet.. like yesterday.

Since I’m obsessed with blazers, I opt for a good linen blazer during the warmer months since it helps circulate more air and keep me cooler than a regular blazer. This one is seriously my go-to non stop during the summer (and winter months) even. I hope you guys like this fun summer beach look! Have a fabulous weekend!
