Finding The Right Olay Moisturizer

This post is in partnership with Olay. All opinions are 100% my own. 
Hi guys!
I know many of us struggle to find the right moisturizer for our skincare needs so I've written this post as a start in helping you to identify the right moisturizer for YOU. I have friends who are anti-moisturizer and I always have to convince them when they cleanse their faces, exfoliating ingredients will remove some of the skin oils which often leads to over-dying. Everyone needs moisturizer, no matter the skin type. A daily surge of hydration is pertinent to good skin.
Now, Olay has a few moisturizers and I love and I trust their brand. However, I know not every single moisturizer is for me or for you, too. This is why I took the quiz to find out which one was best for me.  I decided to steadily use both the Olay Regenerist Whip and Regenerist Micro-Sculpting Cream to see which one was best for me. Based on my responses on the quiz and after use, it turned out, the Olay Micro-Sculpting Cream was the perfect one for me. Here's my breakdown of what I loved about both moisturizers.

It kept my skin intensely moisturized throughout the day
My skin felt and looked firmer
I experienced long lasting hydration which I absolutely loved
It also comes in a fragrance-free option

As with all the Whip products, I love the barely there feel on my skin
It absorbs super quick so this is great for busy on-the-go individuals
I really love the matte finish on my skin
This also comes fragrance-free
Now that I've shown you the quiz and then having tried these two Olay Moisturizers. I recommend that you take the quiz and see which one the answers lead you to. Then get that moisturizer and enjoy intense moisture that your skin will love and thank you for :)



My Cake Cutting & After Party Dress From Watters

Hi Guys,

I’m super excited to share with you all a few wedding related posts over the next two weeks. Today I want to share with you my cake-cutting and after party dress. This is the Geneva Dress from Watters. When I first spotted this dress I instantly fell in love with it. I loved the elegant silhouette and how beautiful it flowed. I tried it on and was very sure it was going to be one of my three dresses I wore on my big day. 

It was perfect and I felt like a true queen in it. Depending on your style, this dress can easily be a main wedding gown option, court house wedding option, a vow renewal option...it’s also perfect for a beach wedding. It’s endless and this is a dress I will definitely wear again. I love the versatility and I’m so happy I chose it. 

Watters has so many amazing wedding dress options that it’ll be hard not to find one to love. I especially love the affordability of their selections. 

Here are a few other options I absolutely fell in love with, too:
Thanks for reading and stay tuned for more wedding posts from my wedding. 




Ready To Take On The Outdoors With Olay Sun SPF

This post is in partnership with Olay. All opinions are 100% my own. 
Hey guys!
It's no secret how much I love Olay and their amazing products. Every season I look to them for my miracle product to combat the change in weather and, my overall skin care needs. Well it's beginning to heat up and it's time for SPF, one of my favorite skincare hack of all time. I wear SPF all year round but anywhere from late Spring is when I begin to be extremely meticulous about it, all the way to end of summer. Amazingly, Olay has me covered with the Olay SUN Face Sunscreen + Shine Control with SPF 35. 
It is oil-free, it has anti-aging benefits, and it doesn't clog my pores. It sits beautifully under my make-up and also improves the coverage and longevity. The best part, it has a barely there feel so my skin feels natural and looks beautiful. Memorial Day weekend is coming up and we plan on hanging out at the park for a little picnic, relaxing to a good book, and people watch. I always look forward to being outside when it's warm and beautiful. 
This is why I use Olay SUN Face Sunscreen + Shine Control with SPF 35 to protect my skin while I enjoy the beautiful outdoors. Doing things like this is a form of self-care for me. Taking care of my skin, enjoying nature, relaxing to a good book, talking to strangers, and spending time outside. 
Whatever your long weekend or holiday plans are, just don't forget your SPF and I highly recommend Olay SUN Face Sunscreen + Shine Control with SPF 35
Thanks for swinging by.


How To Incorporate Mixed-Metals In Your Kitchen

This post is in partnership with Lowe's. All opinions are 100% my own. 
I've been told multiple times that I was brave to mix so many different metals in my kitchen during the remodeling process. In the end, everyone loved it. I had a precise vision for my kitchen and I wasn't going to let doubt stop me from seeing it through. I wanted my kitchen to look one-of-a-kind, chic, and luxurious. Mixing metals was actually easy. It's just like mixing jewelry. The only difference is that it's a bit more permanent in the kitchen :) I sourced all of my metals and products from Lowe's because they have a huge selection and I love being bale to one-stop-shop.

Here's how I approached mixing metals in my kitchen and you can easily recreate it too. 

-Decide on one focal metal select other items around it. For me, it was my Sinkology Antique Copper sink. This beautiful farmhouse sink was my focal metal piece. It tells you, this is about to be a fun kitchen. Ha! It also tells you, expect the unexpected and be prepared to be swooned. 
-Decide on how many different metals you want to build around your focal metal. I decided on 4 others (gold, bronze, rose gold, and brass with silver appliances). Common combos are silver & gold, brass and nickel, gold & rose gold. 
-Decide if you want to keep metals that are alike together, or shift them around your kitchen. For me, I shifted them around my kitchen. I loved the flow of moving from one metal to the next. For example; My bronze sink is a beautiful rose gold Delta Trinsic faucet and next to it is my silver Samsung dishwasher
-Finally, decorate your space with more metals. This can be in the form of small appliances or decor items. If you've missed the entire Kitchen reveal, you can see it all here
I hope you consider mixing metals on your next home remodel project.

The New & Improved adidas Nite Jogger

This post is in partnership with FinishLine & Adidas. All opinions are 100% my own. 
When I shop for sneakers my main focus is comfort and then style. Lucky for me, I didn't have to settle for one and not the other when I chose these adidas Nite Jogger from FinishLine.com. I also tend to steer toward classic and timeless sneakers. The original Nite Jogger was introduced in 1979 and has many upgrades since then. At the core of it is comfort and style. The new and improved adidas Nite Jogger is every girl's sneaker dream. I ordered mine in black (it also comes in white/pink & white/grey). These shoes ran a little big on me so I got a 1/2 size down.
A sneaker is probably one of the easiest shoe to style. You can literally wear any and everything with it. The only thing off limit would probably be an evening gown. Ha! But if you wanted, why could you not style these adidas Nite Joggers with in a evening gown. You only live once after all.
I styled mine with Jeans, a casual shirt and light jacket. You can also style these with joggers, sweatshirts, and/or leggings. It's the perfect shoe to style casual outfits. It's extremely comfortable, soft and the fabric is breathable. 



The Perfect Perfume To Gift This Mother’s Day

This post is in partnership with Sephora. All opinions are 100% my own. 
I’m most fortunate to have a lot of mother figures in my life. I’m constantly surrounded by strong, beautiful and fearless women. My mother is the epitome of all these things. I love celebrating her, and this Mother’s Day, will be no exception. I’ve gifted my mom this Dolce & Gabbana Dolce Garden perfume from Sephora for her Mother’s Day gift, before we head back to our respective homes after my wedding. I pretty much know the types of scent my mom loves but I’m also happy to know that Sephora has a fragrance finder quiz that you can take to help you discover a scent to keep or to gift. It is super quick and easy and gives you recommendations you will love. My mom lives in the UK and for the first time, I wanted to personally deliver to her, this Mother’s Day gift. I had gone to my local Sephora to pick out a scent for her and I fell in love with this one. The Dolce & Gabbana Dolce Garden has warm florals scents- a mix of frangipani, Ylang-Ylang and coconut essence. It gave me the perfect Island feel of romance and love.

My mom fills me with so much positive affirmations, constant words of encouragement, and always tells me I’m beautiful. I didn’t realize the importance of the way she built my self-esteem by the things she would say and do. It has made me into the woman I am today. I thank my mother for that. My mom migrated right when I was on the brink of becoming a teenager and I know that was a huge sacrifice for her, but it paid off. She opened doors for me to travel, took care of me in the best way possible and made me feel loved even miles apart. I will forever be grateful to my mom. She raised my brother to know and love me even though we lived on two separate continents.
She’s my person, my trusted confidant and the person I know has my back for life. Whoever you are celebrating this Mother’s Day, I recommend the Dolce & Gabbana Dolce Garden Perfume from Sephora. I promise, they will love it.
Happy Mother's Day
