I Had The Best Facial Of My Life

Hi Loves,

How many of you get your regular facials? You know, once per month type of thing. I sure don't and that is quite unfair to my skin. So over the weekend, I went and got a well needed facial from ZO Skin Center. I remember always hearing about Obagi and the miracles his products and techniques does for the skin so I was quite excited. I was kind of embarrassed to let my beautician know that it has been about 6 months since my last facial- Yikes!!!!
Anyway, Margarita assured me that she was going to do an excellent job on my face and she was compelled that I was going to be pleased. 
Upon entering, everyone was warm and lovely. I was asked to do the usual fill out forms and they offered me comfort. The space itself was very luxurious and classy. I did my treatment at the Beverly Hills location. 
Margarita, my beautician came to get me and brought me to the treatment room. I was all smiles and super excited. She took a look at my face and explained what she will be doing. Of course I naturally trusted her and without a doubt she did an excellent job. 
She gave my skin high boosting oxygen, penetrated peptides and so much good stuff into my skin. She cleared all my black and white heads and continuously reassured me that I will be satisfied. We also had great conversation. I picked up on her warm personality which quite matched mine and we chit chatted through the treatment. I' sure if you aren't talkative, Margarita would honor that. I relaxed through the latter part of the treatment. 
Now, if you cannot tell the difference between my pictures going in and after, you are not seeing well. Usually, I leave a facial feeling not quite photo ready (due to redness etc) but after margarita was done and I looked in the mirror, all I wanted was to snap photos from all angles. 
So, Loves, How do you like me now? For my California, Florida, Cairo, and Dubai readers. Go ahead and make your appointment at the ZO Skin Center. They have locations and products all over the world. If you plan to visit, call and make an appointment. Dr Obagi is world renown and you can trust that you will get the best. 

Hope you enjoyed this read and that it inspired your next ZO Skin Center facial. 



William Rast Pieces I Am Loving From Macy's

This post was sponsored by Macy's but all options are 100% my own.
Hi there, Loves. 
Hope you are all having an amazing day. I wanted to share this look with you all that I am obsessing over. For a while I have been hunting the perfect denim jacket since I accidentally spilled curry on my old one last summer. 
While searching I discovered William Rast line at Macy's and instantly fell in love with the build and quality of their clothing. The line was actually created by Justin Timberlake and his partner. I was quite intrigued and impressed. With that said, this sussex jacket was not going to be enough, I needed to snag a pair of their jeans as well and I decided to get one of their tops too. Firstly, I'm amazed at the quality of the clothing, my denim pieces are soft and smooth on my skin. My jeans are super stretchy and gives me maximum comfort to move about. That is really important to me with jeans. My jacket has a beautiful high-low cut which gives a very chic look to whatever you wear it with. I plan on dressing it with a cute fit and flare dress and some cute wedges or flats. I love a good denim jacket and I have a feeling I will have this one for years to come. 

This cotton stripe top will likely be on high rotation this summer. I love the pretty vertical stripes and I might double-dip it on Memorial Day and 4th of July. The color scheme is just perfect for any patriotic celebration in addition to casual lunches or beach strolls. I love versatility and functionality of my clothing. 
I think I have found a new favorite with William Rast and I am sure I will be snagging a few more items. 
Do you guys shop at Macy's? Have you bought any item from the William Rast line? If you haven't, I hope you do on your next shopping trip. They have many other super cute items to choose from. 
Till next time, Loves. 



Girly Monochrome Ruffles

Hey Loves! Well this is as girly as girly gets. You know my style, "girly does it". What's funny is that I grew up tomboy-like. At least up until I was about 13. The only time I was OK being super girly was going to church. I guess because that was the norm. Today, I'm  more girly than I could ever be. Sometimes I mix a bit of my tomboy side into my style but I really have to be feeling like it. If you notice, I'm also not the fond of super skin fit clothing. I never was, not even when I was stick skinny and I feel it has a lot to do with my growing up in the church. Would you believe that the very first time I wore a spaghetti strap top was when I was 16 or 17 years of age? I kid you not. To be frank, it was a liberating experience. After that, you could not get me out of showing my arms or wearing swimsuits. Ha!

Today's look is this soft monochrome blush ruffle vibe. I wore this look last month a friend's birthday brunch. Her invitation was quite posh and I wanted to be as accommodating to her wishes as possible and she was pleased (hey Vanessa!!)
My top and skirt are both from Forever21. My bag is YSL and shoes Valentino

Hope you have a great week, Loves.



Some Really Awesome Products I'm Currently Loving

Hi again, Loves. 
Sharing with you today some of my current favorite products. I come across many products and some of them literally become favorites. I'm the type of person that loves samples and also love testing something new. I have been using most of the products for the past 2 or three months and here's my thoughts on them. 

First up are these Aveda balancing body mists. There are actually 7 or 8 (in a set) and I love spraying them on my skin when I do yoga or after a long day where I have showered and relaxing to a good glass of wine, and a good read or lovely movie. I really like Chakra 1(grounded)  and 6 (insight/perception). Each bottle serves a different purpose and I enjoy tuning into the purpose of each scent. If you are into zen-like, centered, or awareness lifestyle, then these are worth a try. 
These two mists are my favorite make-up mists right now. They are from Pixi and these are Glow Mist and Make-up Fixing Mist. They both do a great job setting my make-up and giving my face the perfect glow. They also smell fresh and great. 
Ok, so oddly this disposable cup made my list. I've been enjoying homemade coffee even more due to these fun, bright, and cute Cheeky x Whitney Port cups. The sleeves says "morning" and that  alone make some super happy driving to work. I'm also fond of the charity efforts of Cheeky and that they donate a meal for each item you buy. They're partnered with No Kid Hungry and Feeding America to help end hunger right here in America. I do not know about you but, efforts like this really make me feel apart of something great, by supporting. So the next time you go out to shop for disposables, pick Cheeky up- they can be found easily in Target.
I actually got this in a goodie bag and I have been hunting it down online but cannot find it. I LOVE this shower spray. You know when you go to the spa and they have eucalyptus spray in the shower and you stay like 30 mins taking  shower just to spray eucalyptus until you're dizzy? I keep saying "your" but that's actually my very own confession :)
I think I've found a replacement in this one when my other one is finished. I also spray a little bit in my room over my bed before bedtime. It's really calming and I find that it also helps my guy clear his sinus. 
Last but not least is this amazing mask from Schique skincare I have been using for about 2 weeks now. I've used it four times and totally fallen in love. If you notice it has light white/mini blue particles in it. Once applied it's soft to the skin and the blue beads turn into a full on blue faced mask. I actually got this mask from a beauty media event and the makers were there. They explained the benefits of the blue beads as being natural and great for the skin and I've proven that my face has been feeling and looking bight and hydrated since I have began using it. 

Let me know what you guys have been using lately and loving
I'd love try some new stuff.
