Happy Tuesday everyone!I am so excited to get off work and watch The Bachelor! For some reason this season has caught my attention. I am definitely #TeamCassie. Who are your favs? I wore this outfit to go see The Nutcracker a few weeks back and had such a great time, although it poured down rain. One piece of advice I will give yall is to always have a little black dress in your closet. It WILL come in handy one day!
A few weeks ago I went back to Dallas Beauty Lounge to get a dermaplane facial done. It was my first time getting one so I wasn’t sure what to expect. That being said, I was beyond pleased with my results. It didn’t hurt at all and I was in and out within like 20 minutes. My makeup applied so so so much better and looked incredibly good on my skin. I am definitely going to be getting these done every couple of months. Check out DBL in Bridgeville or Market Square in Pittsburgh!
This was everything that came off my face. I was beyond disgusted. lol.
I received a couple of questions regarding dermaplane facials so I figured I would add them into this post below.
What exactly is a dermaplane facial?
A dermaplane facial is basically a new and improved way to exfoliate your face. It removes dead skin cells as well as peach fuzz. It is a quick and easy “procedure”. An esthetician simply takes a sterile blade and holds your skin taunt swiping the blade in an upwards motion.
What does it feel like?
It actually feels pretty relaxing. It is kind of hard to explain but I promise it does not hurt at all.
How often do you get this done?
It is recommended to get one done every three to four weeks.
I wanted to share a company with you that I found on Instagram called Kin. Kin is run by the cutest husband and wife duo straight out of good ole Savannah Georgia. (Only the best place on earth, no big deal) They make things from handbags, keychains, wallets, pouches and even earrings. And when I say they are the cutes couple ever their products are just as cute! On their website they state “To us, the “right way” means taking our time, sourcing our materials responsibly, and ensuring that our leather goods are made with love and integrity. We never intend to blend in, and we hope we never do.” In other words, their products ARE made with love. These earrings are my first piece from Kin but I can promise you it will not be my last. Check them out on Instagram, Facebook, or their website.
Happy Monday! This past weekend, I finally got around to going to The Candle Lab in Lawrenceville. I have wanted to go there for over a year and was so happy that I finally got the chance to. Needless to say, it did not disappoint. In fact the entire little town of Lawrenceville was amazing. I went with my boyfriend, a friend from high school, and her boyfriend. Can we say double date? lol. The Candle Lab was the first place we stopped at. When we walked in, I immediately got smacked in the face by so many different smells! It was actually pretty packed so we took our time picking out what scents we wanted. The first thing you do is grab a clipboard which has your card on it that you fill out. You then walk over to the wall of candles in which all are labeled with a different scent. You can write down the ones you are interested in using. After picking out those you then walk over to the other side to pick out the jar you want. We ended up picking the white ones which were around $21 each but they had a buy 3 get 1 free deal so we all ended up just splitting it four ways. When seats finally opened up, we sat down and spoke with one of the workers who helped us pick out our top scents. When we all decided on the ones we wanted, she gave us the oils and we got to pouring! It only took about twenty minutes to do everything and then we had to wait about 90 minutes to pick them back up so we headed over to a local boutique called No. 14.
Walking into No. 14 Boutique was like walking into heaven. I would honestly have to say it was the cutest boutique that I have ever been to. The aesthetic was literally amazing. One thing that kind of sucked was things were definitely on the more pricey side but I guess you get what you pay for. I ended up buying a really cute sweater and a few things from the brand Brittany Fusion. Needless to say I will definitely be back!
Since we still had a lot of time left to kill, we went to grab a bite to eat at Industry Public House. Another cool spot to check out. I ordered a chicken salad and in return got a mountain full of lettuce. I mean this picture doesn’t do justice; the salad was HUGE but also very yummy. My boyfriend ordered a caesar salad which was also on the larger size, my friend Shannon ordered their mac n cheese with pulled pork, and her boyfriend ordered a burger. Everything was so delicious; I would have no problem going back. For dessert my boyfriend and I ordered to-go a Leona’s ice cream sandwich. I have heard so many good things about Leona’s since it is made locally and also is lactose free. When we got home we devoured the entire thing. I can’t wait to go back to Lawrenceville and try some other amazing spots that I saw! Stay tuned!
I hope you guys all had a great time celebrating New Years Eve! Last night my boyfriend and I went to my cousin’s house warming/new years party for a little and then headed to the casino to meet some of my friends. I had such a great time especially because I didn’t wake up super hungover, lol. Unfortunately though, I didn’t win any money but it was a great way to bring in the new year with the ones I love. Per usual, I can’t find links to most of my outfit so I will link similar pieces.
