Life file: Pampering at Home


Last week I had Jacquelyn, Victoria and Heidi for a fun girls night in that included tasty snacks and treats, delicious drinks, and some relaxing pampering. I've been meaning to get my hands on a face mask for a loooong time, so I thought that our girls night in was the perfect excuse to finally pull the trigger and treat ourselves to some beautifying products ;)

I love Fresh products (I use their Soy Face Cleanser as a makeup remover, and I always carry their tinted lip balms in my bag), so I knew that their face masks would not disappoint (I also read the great reviews!). Because I couldn't make up my mind on which to get, I ordered from Sephora (hello free shipping over $50, free returns and no duties!) a special set that included the Rose face mask, the Black Tea perfecting mask and the Sugar Face Polish (I included a photo below). We all ended up trying the Sugar Face Polish and we were all very pleased with how soft it left our faces. I haven't tried the other two yet but I promise I'll report as soon as I do (I hear that the black tea one is amazing, same as this one but that will have to wait until I finish these!) :)



Second and last photo by me, rest by the talented Heidi ;)

Outfits File: Chambray and (faux) Leather


Of all the neutrals I wear, my top 3 favorite pieces are leather, stripes and chambray. Leather always gives an edgy twist (which I really like since I often wear classics), and like I mentioned earlier this week, you can never have too many striped tops. Well, I feel exactly the same about chambray, and you know what? Nobody does chambray like Madewell does. Trust me, of all the chambray shirts I own, my Madewell ones are the best! The style, cut and fabric are spot on so if you're in need of a chambray shirt, I highly recommend them ;)

THE LOOK: Madewell Courier Shirt in Chambray (love love love this style!) || Zara Faux Leather Shorts (old, similar) || Miista Lucite Booties (sold out, similar, similar) || Zac Zac Posen Eartha Bag || Spitfire Helix Sunglasses (sold out, similar for less, similar for more, and how cool are these?)
