Winter Fashion Favorites

Hey yall! Happy Friday! Do you have big plans for the weekend? So now that Winter is officially here there are definitely some fashion items that I have been drawn to. I think others are as well because these clothing items have been all over pinterest lately. Which has definitely helped my obsession. 

So here are some of my favorite fashion items for Winter:






1. Oversized Cardigans: Just looking at this cardigan makes me want to curl up on the couch wearing this watching some good tv or snuggled up reading a good book. I love the look of comfort and warmth with oversized cardigans. I like the idea of a cardigan better than a sweater because if you get too hot, you can just take it off. This one from Donna Karen is stunning!


2. Plaid Shirts are a must for me this winter! I just love them! You could easily dress them up with a nice pair of riding boots or dress them down with some Toms shoes.


3. Vests are another must for me this winter. I am just madly head over heels in love with this one from J. Crew. Vests have become a staple piece for me lately.


4. Big Scarfs are something I definitely can't live without in the Winter months. They not only are fashionable, but they can keep you warm. My husband thinks I have way too many scarfs, but I say you can never have enough. ;)

So there you have it..my essentials for Winter Fashion.

What are your go-to Winter Fashion items?

Wet 'N Wild's Coverall Cream Foundation

 
Hey lovebugs! Today's post is all about Wet 'N Wild's Coverall Cream Foundation. If you have read my blog for a while you know that I have very oily, sensitive skin. (yuck!) So for me finding a good foundation that doesn't break me out or one that isn't completely washed off my face by my oil within an hour is.. well..tough! I had a friend recommend me to Wet 'N Wild's foundation, so I thought why not..let's try it out! I am very glad I did because it has been my go-to foundation for the past couple of weeks.
 
 
Wet 'N Wild's description of this foundation:
 Glides on weightlessly for sheer-to-medium coverage that’s never heavy, chalky, or dull. Evens out flaws with a silky, semi-matte finish that let’s your skin’s natural luminescence shine through. Contains SPF 15 for the ultimate in anti-aging treatment.

 
My thoughts:
 
Color:
I wear the color 816 Fair/Light. What can I say..I am pretty pale!
This color is a perfect match for my skin. There are only 7 color choices to choose from which will definitely not accommodate everyone's skin color. So that is definitely a huge bummer!
 
Lasting Power/Wear:
This foundation does a pretty good job of lasting on my oily skin. It also does a good job at keeping the shine off my oily spots. I usually have to dab off the oil after about 5 hours of wear and reapply the foundation. When I first applied the foundation it did look a bit heavy on my skin, but after a few minutes it did soak in my skin to give it that flawless semi-matte look Wet 'N Wild described the foundation as. It is definitely medium-to-full coverage. This foundation has not broke me out which a huge score for me. Since I do have such sensitive skin it is very hard to find products that don't cause me to breakout.
 
Appearance/Packaging:
I think the packaging is very simple, but I like it though. I do enjoy the fact that it is in a squeeze tube. It really helps eliminate wasting a ton of product. This way you know exactly how much of the foundation you are getting out. It is only a 1 fl oz, but a little bit of the foundation really does go a long way. I bought this foundation about 2 months ago and I still have more than half of the foundation left.
 
Final Thoughts:
I really do love this foundation. It is great for my oily, sensitive skin. The only negative I would say about this foundation is that I wish they would have more color choices to accommodate everyone.

Bye Bye Acne...Hello Flawless Skin!

Hey there little lovebugs! I hope everyone had an amazing weekend! So I don't know about you, but I have had the worst break outs lately. ahh such a bummer! I thought I would try something from the drugstore that wouldn't completely break my wallet. Maximum Strength Terminator 10 by AcneFree caught my eye. I am not sure if it was the bright shiny orange tube or the name "The Terminator" that caught my attention, but I thought with a name like that...it has to be pretty powerful, right?!
 
 
What AcneFree says about this product:
This dermatologist recommended acne medicine is designed to absorb faster and deeper to eliminate acne bacteria and fight breakouts between applications. Minimizes the over-drying that can occur with ordinary benzoyl peroxide and reduces redness with the triple-action power of chamomile, ginger and sea whip.
 
Micro-sized Benzoyl Peroxide is designed to reach faster and deeper into pores without the harshness and over-drying that can occur with ordinary Benzoyl Peroxide.
 
 
 
My thoughts:
I am very impressed with this acne spot treatment + redness control product. It dried up the few pimples I had overnight. I was completely shocked the following morning. It does tend to dry out your skin a little bit though..It does have 10% benzoyl peroxide in it, so I knew it would be very drying. The directions say to apply once a day initially, then two to three times daily as needed. I would definitely only apply one time a day for a while since it so powerful and make sure to moisturize your skin often.
 
 
The spot treatment does come in a squeeze tube which I absolutely love. It is great to monitor exactly how much product you get out. Plus it keeps it sanitized!  
 
I highly recommend the Maximum Strength Terminator 10 by AcneFree!
 
Where to find/Price:
This product retails between $5-$7.
I found mine at Wal-Mart, but you can also find it at Target, Walgreens, and CVS.
