The week leading up to Ferragosto we decided to head to our cottage near Rieti with my in-laws and hubby’s extended family. If you’ve ever been to Rome in August, you already know it’s insanely hot and humid and Rome becomes a ghost town.
Out with the old and in with the new. The beauty industry has turned it up a few notches on fake lashes by creating semi-permanent eyelash extensions. They’ve got us lusting over long luscious lashes that can last up to 4 weeks if you’re lucky.
Hey girlfriends, today I’m giving you the lowdown on my favorite skincare products. In the video below I show you how I use each product, but here you’ll find the details on why I’m crushing on them. In general, I’d say that my skin type is normal to dry and that I have an even complexion. I’ve been noticing that my skin hasn’t been as radiant, (more like dull), my fine lines are more evident to me than before and that I’ve been needing to use more makeup in order to compensate for the lack of ‘glow’. Also, now that I’ve entered the 30’s (OH MY GAWD) I want to take better care of my skin. I’ve been more conscious of ingredients and (potentially) harmful chemicals that are used in the makeup and in the skincare industry that I found it really difficult to commit to making an ‘investment’ (cause the good stuff ain’t cheap).
I’m a girly girl at heart and as much as I get down at the gym, rockin’ my sweat headbands and comfy activewear around town, I love getting dressed up! This floral dress is so light and effortless to wear, and can easily transition from a casual day look to an evening date night on the town. Accessorize with white kicks & a jean jacket, wedges & dangling earrings or heels & neutral coloured bracelets depending on the situation.
