Those who know me well know my beauty routine is minimal with many distractions. Many. So when I heard Sephora is having a sale, I thought I’d share 5 items in my cart and on my beauty shelf. Have you tried this tan oil? I’ve used it for my face and body post exfoliation. 

SUMMER FRIDAYS MASK (I’ve yet to try this and can’t wait. I’ve heard its crazy moisturizing!)

TAN FACE (no parabens or sulfates! I mix 2-4 drops with my daily facial oil. I like that it has raspberry seed oil and aloe vera for moisture).
TAN BODY (apply 2-6 drops per leg with my usual moisturizer in circular motion) I also love THIS ONE but speaking from experience, don’t forget to wash your hands off!
DRUNK ELEPHANT OIL (I’ve been wanting to try this brand and oil!)
GLOW PALETTE(I’ve been using this for months as a great highlighter with hyaluronic acid!)


We’re headed up to the cabin, but I wanted to let you guys know today is the LAST DAY OF THE SHOPBOP SALE. I call it the stock up sale. I gathered 5 items under $200 most under $150, which are your faves? Have a lovely weekend!

 If it were up to me, I would’ve made the Pantone color of the year blush. You cannot deny how hot this color is right now. I love it paired with neutrals or even red.

5 Wide Leg Pants

by Shalice Noel
4. White pants   (Also cute – Flowy white pants )

If you follow my Sunday pictures, 9/10 times I’m wearing wide leg pants! Wide leg pants can be intimidating and challenging to style, however, I happen to love them. Here are a couple tips to follow. To make you look taller, opt for the stripe pants, secondly, keep your look monochrome, if you’re wearing white pants, wear a white top with a cute jacket or blazer. DO the same for red and black, and the denim high waisted, opt for a crop top or tie a button down shirt. Play around with the proportions and find what works for you. Which is your favorite?


Whether you’re going out, or staying in, there are some great options on sale now. I’ve been able to get ahead on my Christmas shopping and maybe pick up a thing or two for myself thanks to early sales. I like to sip tea and shop Black Friday from the comfort of my home. NO lines, traffic or fight for a parking spot! Which are your faves?

Softest pullover (can be worn off-the-shoulder)

When the temps dip, I my favorite thing to reach for (besides fur-lined slides) is a cozy knit. While every sweater promises to be the coziest, I’ve edited them down to a handful I’ve worn and love. Meanwhile, still waiting on that cozy weather here in SoCal.

 I’m also sharing some faves to accompany the sweater like cute leather pants and grey boots. Even though the temps say 86, I’m still reaching for hot drinks and feeling cozy indoors reading books with my kids on the couch. Happy Fall!
