Perfect skin? Yeah right! IMPOSSIBLE! Think again….
I wish I could say I was one of those people that has never had a pimple in their life but unfortunately …I’m not. I thought acne stopped after the teenage years but here I am at 23 still struggling with break outs. My skin isn’t perfect by any means but I’ve found ways to help prevent acne! Hope this helps and feel free to leave any tips or tricks that I didn’t mention in the comments below!
1. Cetaphil Gentle Skin Cleanser
This was actually recommended to me by my dermatologist which was amazing because it’s only $6 and can be found at any drug store! I cleanse my face with this in the morning and at night. Cetaphil is great because it doesn’t have any added perfumes that might make you break out. It also doesn’t contain any ingredients that will dry you out. It’s super gentle and great for the skin.
2. Cetaphil Moisturizing Lotion
The Cetaphil moisturizing lotion was also recommended by my dermatologist. It’s great to hydrate your skin after cleansing and doesn’t leave the skin greasy or oily. It is hypoallergenic and also fragrance free!
3. Clinique Acne Solutions Foundation
After cleansing and moisturizing I apply my Clinique Acne Solutions foundation. I cannot say enough good things about this product! I love to try new foundations but always end up breaking out. There is no other foundation I would recommend if you have sensitive skin or are prone to acne.
I am not the biggest fan of water. It’s always so hard for me to even finish a whole water bottle in a day but when I started drinking 64oz every day it did wonders for my skin! Water helps to flush toxins out of your body and is great for rejuvenating your skin. Try to drink 64oz every day and I promise you will see a difference not only in your skin but also in your energy level!
5. Eat Healthy
I cut out dairy, eggs, and processed sugars. When I did this I saw a huge difference in my skin. If I want to sweeten food or a smoothie I will usually use a natural sweetener (banana, honey, or agave nectar). This also helped my energy levels and just made me feel better overall!
Hope these tips helped! Let me know your thoughts! Xo

It’s 2018!! Happy New Year! Here is where we all sip champagne, kiss a loved one, and throw around confetti like it’s our birthday.
Every year we make resolutions to change certain habits or to maintain others. Each new day is a chance to improve upon ones life and be the person you wish to be. Take new chances, make mistakes, and try again. We all feel that when a new year arrives that is when our goals to become better will take place. Each day, hour, and minute could be the opportunity for someone to put into effect what they have always aspired to do. Lets ring in the new year with amazing goals and aspirations but not forget that with each and every day we get the chance to hit the restart button and make a change.
I don’t know about you but I get so much inspiration from accounts I follow on Instagram and I’m always looking for new ones. I thought I would share with you my favorite accounts to follow and why. Enjoy! Xo
1. @doyoutravel & @gypsea_lust
Talk about life goals! This couple travels all over the world for a living and creates some of the most beautiful content I’ve ever seen. They had breakfast with giraffes in Africa and explored the beauties of Bali. Follow along their adventure with me!
Are you a foodie like I am? Then you need to be following @elsas_wholesomelife. She just released her own cookbook and takes the most amazing food photos. Talk about a perfect feed too! Enjoy her yummy recipes and pretty pics!
All of my family goals! I mean come on! They are a Hawaii beach fam and couldn’t be any cuter! Enjoy following her yummy recipes, island lifestyle, and amazing stories! Seriously, watch her story for some great mini cooking shows!
I love inspirational quotes and positive sayings. @rmdrk has one of the most amazing feeds of you’re interested in poetry. He has a number of books out that are amazing as well! Be sure to check him out!
I recently found this feed and fell in love. Every photo is beautiful and taken in incredible places. This account gives me serious wanderlust and makes me want to travel the world.
As this year comes to an end I thought I would review some of the most popular fashion trends of 2017!
These became a trend around half way through the year and they are here to stay. In 2012 the trend was the bigger the sunglasses the better. Now it’s the complete opposite. Who needs protection from the sun anyway? They don’t really do much but they do make for a cute accessory.
2. Lingerie Body Suits
I personally love this trend! It is now acceptable to wear lingerie outside of the bedroom. It’s a great way to make a baggy pair of mom jeans sexy. Gooseberry Intimates, Victoria’s Secret, and several other brands make beautiful lace body suits that are perfect for pairing with a leather jacket or denim jeans.
3. Slicked Middle Part Pony
This clean slicked back look is seen on every red carpet recently. I love the look and how clean it looks. It gives the make up and accessories a chance to be the star of the show.
4. Lace Up Everything
Recently you can’t walk down the street without seeing pleather lace up pants, skirts, or shorts. It’s a fun way to add a little edge to an outfit.
5. Camo Cargo Pants
I’m not a huge fan of cargo pants but they are back and can be seen everywhere! These camo cargos are super trendy amongst celebrities. Paired with a black tee these are a great way to look fashionable running around town.
6. Fur Coats
I’m obsessed with the fur coat trend (faux of course). They are so cute and a perfect way to dress up any outfit!
7. Sailor Hat
These hats have become trendy everywhere! Makes everywhere feel like Europe and I’m not complaining.
8. Yellow Plaid (Or anything yellow for that matter)
9. Cheetah Print
Bringing back the early 2000’s and I’m singing Cheetah Sisters.
10. Denim On Denim
Brought to you by the early 90’s this has to be my favorite trend! Call it what you want but I’m obsessed! Giving me vintage Guess vibes!
The most wonderful time of year filled with sparkle, love, crisp winter nights, cozy cuddles, and the people you care about the most. It’s hard to be sad when you are surrounded by so much joy.
On Christmas Eve I spent the whole day helping my mom bake yummy treats and delicious food! We sang Christmas carols and danced around the kitchen with my two sweet new kittens. On Christmas Eve we always get to open one present and it’s always new Christmas pajamas. My brother, mom, and I drive around to look at all of the amazing Christmas lights that my neighborhood puts up every year before going to bed.
In my family we have so many traditions around the holidays and it doesn’t seem to matter how old we get they always seem exciting. It’s crazy to think how fast time goes though. Seems like just yesterday I was waking up Christmas morning to see what Santa brought me and getting so excited to see he ate the milk and cookies I had left him the night before. All of a sudden I’m 23 years old and wondering where the time went between then and now. It’s a bittersweet feeling.
This time of year will always hold a special place in my heart. It really is about giving and not about receiving. When all you care about is being surrounded by the people you love the most and you don’t even know what you could ask for aside from that; you’re doing it right.
Hope you all had an amazing holiday surrounded by friends, family, good food, and loving pets!
