Seven magic mountains is another place that I stopped on my way from Los Angeles to Texas. A bit out of the way since it is right outside Las Vegas, but definitely worth it! Great photo ops, and I wish I was able to have gone when it was less crowded and in the afternoon, but we were on a time constraint! Still a cool place to visit if you’re in the area.
Where is your favorite place to go for photo ops?
I recently have been into a lot more edgier outfits. While I still love to keep everything fun and feminine, every once in a while I like to mix it up! Honestly boho is my current favorite! I like billowy tops and flare jeans… think Free People!
This outfit is a bit more grungy than I had hoped, but I was on a road trip, all of my outfits weren’t accessible, and I just had to go for it! Definitely something different but the color of the rocks made me feel better about al of the black! Also I just had to style my fanny pack from Quay Australia (linked below).
I used to dress super girly and honestly I still do, but every once in a while I like to mix it up. I am going for something a little more chic, recently. If you follow my instagram you will see a small change in filters for fall, but also in my looks. I am dressing things up with hats, big belt buckles, simple gold jewelry and fun booties. I really think I am a huge trend follower! Not on purpose, but I definitely just really like when an outfit is put together well!

Let me start off by saying I have been way more into skincare than usual recently! From the products I use to how I use them, its all essential. I put on lotion everyday after I shower and I have even been applying sunscreen which I did not do before!
One essential beauty product is my Jade Roller. I have been wanting one of these for a while now since I definitely have puffiness in the morning. This is caused by lymphatic drainage and when you roll out the drainage is released from your facial area. There also are other benefits like increasing circulation and reduced dark under eyes.
So after a night out I will stick my roller in the fridge or for a few minutes in the freezer if I forget. Then I will apply my daily moisturizer with SPF and apply a light layer on my face, you can also use a serum. Then I use the roller and slowly roll up and out. It should feel like a massage!
I try to do this daily if not at least three times a week. It has been a new part of my beauty routine and as someone who is used to having a puffy face in the morning it really makes a difference. The exact roller I use is this 100% natural Jade stone roller from Purbert.com and I bought it through Amazon. I use the larger roller for my cheek and forehead area and the smaller roller for around my eyes. You can also use the smaller part for your face and the larger parts for your body! The one I use also comes with a one year 100% satisfaction guarantee.
With the heat comes all new beauty routines and products to use. I rounded up a few of my favorites to use and why I use them during these hotter months. Anything long lasting, containing SPF and most of all hydrating is what I am all about! Even better are the products with real, all natural ingredients. I believe those will do the very best for your face, but every once in a while I find a favorite that is not of that making!
Primer : I love the refreshing feeling of this MAC Prep + Prime rose water primer, it helps my makeup stay on longer and just feels so great when I put it on before my makeup. MAC has a whole line of prep and prime products that really make your makeup last!
CC Cream : I usually get some discoloration from the sun during winter because of the tanning, I like to use CC Creams to fix the redness I accumulate. I’ve been using this one by IT Cosmetics, it contains SPF and is more natural than other products. This one by Pacifica is also great and is cruelty-free, vegan and contains coconut water!
Hair Masks : This one is all about HYDRATION. Keeping your ends from damaging in the pool or the sun is essential, so I like to do a weekly hair mask to keep in the hydration.This first one I used to use before I colored my hair and I loved it! It made my hair so silky for only $16! The second is by Moroccan Oil which is one of my favorite hair product brands!
Hair Spray : For a long lasting look I have to have a touch of hairspray. The night humidity kills my locks and so I add a bit of hold to keep them intact. I’ve been trying out this one from the Marc Anthony collection purely because it contains argan oil. For a great hold, Aveda pure abundance is a great go-to as well!
Bold Lips : I love a bright pink lip for summer, or a great neutral gloss for going out at night with a dark eye. These are two of my favorite shades of the moment because of how often I use them during the summer! The MAC shade is in Patisserie and I prefer the cream consistency. The gloss is by Smashbox and I usually change up those colors!
