Facial Oils

One of my favorite skincare products is my facial oil. Now you may wonder what I mean by facial oil as there are varying types of these products. Personally, I am referring to both facial oil cleansers and facial oil moisturizers.

If you're anything like me, your skin gets a little dry around the winter/spring months, and no amount of moisturizer will keep my skin hydrated.

This past winter I tried out the Nuance Marigold Cleansing Facial Oil, and fell in love. It retails for about $20 at CVS or on, but it has lasted me a few months so I say it is worth every dollar.

So here's how it works: you pump 1-2 pumps of the facial oil onto your palm and smooth across your face. (If your skin is extra dry, let it soak in for a few mins before you wash it off so that the oil can really penetrate your skin). Wash off and pat dry with towel, do not scrub!

I follow that cleanser with either the Miracle Oil facial oil or the Rosehip Collagen Facial Oil. Both oils contain therapeutic grade essential oils that are 100% natural. I switch off on application depending on what my skin needs.

The Miracle Oil works best when I am having a breakout or have some acne scars, as it contains tea tree and hemp oil which help to calm irritated skin.

The Rosehip Oil helps to keep your skin elastic, filling in wrinkle lines, and also smoothes out skin while deeply hydrating. I use this when I feel like my skin is extra dry and tight!

Facial oils are suitable for everyone, regardless of skin type. Even if you're oily, this will help to balance out natural oils in your skin to work with your oil production.

I hope you check out these oils and let me know what you think!

Favorite Summer Products | Cruelty Free

This summer, I have been loving all the fruity products that I can get my hands on! From all natural face masks, to cruelty free hair products, I have been so in love with all the new items I have been trying!
I have heard so much about Korean skincare, and how revolutionary that it can be for your skin, so I did some research and found Frudia! Frudia is a Korean skincare company whose products are filled with natural fruit juices and extracts, giving you the essential nutrients you need without all the chemicals!
I picked up the Green Grape Pore Control Mask, at my local Ulta, and it is super hydrating while also tightening pores!
I also met with the founder of MopTop Hair while at the Natural Food and Product Expo West this past year. She was so sweet and sent me home with a few samples and I was automatically obsessed with not only the delicious smell of the products, but the way it made my hair feel!
The Mongongo Oil smells amazing and hydrates your hair without making you feel greas…


This morning, my friend and I woke up for the 8:30am spin class at the new SoulCycle studio in Walnut Creek!
I have always wanted to try SoulCycle, and had a few free passes given to me during the promotion for their grand opening, so I figured I might as well go soon!
So, my friend and I walk in and immediately we were in awe of how sleek, clean, and bright everything was! It was like walking into the studio of your dreams!  We filled out all of our paperwork, tried on some clip-in shoes (they cost $3 to rent), and headed to the lockers to get ready before class.
The studio was so welcoming and had everything from hairbands to deodorant to back you up in case you forgot anything!
Now, about the class.
At first, I was extremely intimidated. There are so many bikes and it seemed like everyone was a regular, so I felt a little anxious, but just wanted to see what all the hype was about!
The second the class starts, you're nonstop moving.  I felt like I was going to die the first 10…

Winter Essentials!

I love winter.
I love the rain, the candles, the hot cocoa, Christmas shopping & everything in between!
One thing I'm definitely obsessed with right now is plaid!

I found this adorable plaid craft paper at Michaels Stores, and this perfect plaid hair scrunchie from Goody Hair!

Some of my other favorite goodies are the Jolly Gloss by Kylie Cosmetics, and the winter eyeshadow kit from Chanel Makeup!

I've also included in the photo, a candle that smells like delicious ripes apples, and a gorgeously wrapped bar of soap that I've received as a gift :)

What are some of your winter favs?

Happy Holidays!
