Summer Skin Series Part 3 & Giveaway


So, I wanted to start a new kind of series on Mermaid Stilettos! I'm a huge advocate of taking care of your skin and the summertime is definitely the time to start taking care of yours! Whether you're working this summer, spending lots of time in the sun, traveling, or living in a city, your skin is always open to harm!

One area I'm huge on is moisturizing! Keeping your skin moisturized and shiny is key- I despise having dry legs. A new product I've been trying out that I wanted to share with you all (because it's sooo cool & actually works) is this Body Boost gel from Skinvolve! It helps with:
Fighting cellulite
Smoothing
Moisturizing
Toning



...And it's made with Ginseng, green tea, menthol, aloe, and vitamins A,B,C,E ! 
The gel works best if applied right before workouts to target trouble areas due to it’s stimulating (and tingling) ingredients. I've been looking for something other than just "regular" lotion from the drugstore, and this Skinvolve product takes skin perfection to the next level! I plan on being in a bikini most of the summer ( I hope you do too), so I'm not opposed to a healthy & natural way to tone your skin!

Another beauty product of theirs that I've been trying out is the Phoenician Secret scrub !
It's made with organic oils, coffee, and Mediterranean dead sea salt. It has totally helped to remove dead skin and improving some minor skin conditions I have (no one's perfect) like acne and stretch marks! A huge bonus: it also smells amazing. Your whole shower time is transformed into a spa experience. Although, if you have access to an outdoor shower I'd recommend that! The coffee gets all over the indoor shower.


Since I'm loving this product so much I'm GIVING AWAY a skinvolve Body Boost gel to one follower and a skinvolve Secret Scrub to one follower!

I found this awesome embroidered chambray shift dress on sale at Madewell! I couldn't find the exact one online, I think it sold out, but I found a lot of other super cute shifts to shop! Also, been wearing these sandals non-stop- from Mari A
This is such an easy summer look to throw on before dinner!

Have a great weekend & check out my summer skin series HERE

Summer Skin Series Part 2

( I'm wearing the charcoal paper mask and Morgan is wearing the Cucumber mask )

So, I wanted to start a new kind of series on Mermaid Stilettos! I'm a huge advocate of taking care of your skin and the summertime is definitely the time to start taking care of yours! Whether you're working this summer, spending lots of time in the sun, traveling, or living in a city, your skin is always open to harm!
-Check out part 1 of the series-

I'm definitely one to have a routine. A face wash, toner, moisturizer, eye creme, and of course some acne treatment. I enjoy taking care of my skin, specifically my face. However, it took me a while to get in the grove and find out what worked or what didn't. A few favorites are  my Origins face wash , this Neutrogena toner, Clinique exfoliating scrub and their makeup remover, and my Yes To Charcoal face mask !

Miami Guide - weekend staycation

First stop on the trip was Wynwood walls! It was beautiful... but SO SO SO hot. Wynwood  art district is awesome - it's full of cool shopping, donuts, bars, and murals! Christian and I explored, shopped, and ended up at a fun trendy bar called concrete beach!
 DRINK ART MAKE BEER 

We stayed at Circa 39 hotel on Miami beach! It was the perfect size, had a cute boutique bar, a hidden pool, and it felt like you were staying in a beach house!

Saturday night we went to the Justin Bieber concert... yes, my boyfriend came and even BOUGHT the tickets for us. I was beyond excited.

Now onto food & drinks....
Had to stop for the famous "The Salty Donut". I got the guava and cheese donut, I was in heaven.

 Christian and I had drinks and dinner one night at the Freehand. Their bar, the broken shaker, is one of the tops bars in America. And their restaurant, 27, was delicious. The restaurant is in a renovated house so all the tables are in rooms, like a living room or dining room. The food comes out family style so it's fun to order a few things to share!

The rooftop bar at Hotel 1 at sunset was magical! Definitely consider coming here if you're in Miami!

Summer Skin Series



So I'm starting a summer skin series! I'm really excited because many people, including myself, don't take care of their skin like they should! 
I'm a huge advocate of taking care of your skin and the summer time is definitely the time to start taking care of yours! Whether you're working this summer, spending lots of time in the sun, traveling, or living in a city, your skin is always open to harm!
First stop on this series- ACNE. 



It's hard to admit, maybe a little embarrassing, but of course I deal with acne! I'm 21 & a girl & in school & stressed sometimes. So I'm always trying to figure out ways to not look like a teenager.

Spot treatment is definitely the way to go. I don't know if you've ever tried it but it works wonders. Hit the spot and say GOODBYE. 
OXY has the best spot treatment. I've been using it before bed and when I wake up I see such a difference.

Another product in obsessed with is their wash! Although I use many washes, this one is the best for fighting acne specifically. My face feels tingly and fresh right after using it. I usually towel damp dry and let my skin breath right after. Try not to put lotion or makeup on after using these products because you want your skin to soak up the product and reap the benefits!
No matter your age, if you can relate to me you should definitely try this stuff! 

Damp your face and let it air dry for a bit.
Try out these pads! OXY is starting a 28 day challenge. Use the pads for 28 days and your skin will look fresh and new, I promise. 
   
Last step: Spot treatment 
Hit the spot and rock the dots

           

This is a sponsored post from OXY! Thank you for my product !


Bright Pink Summer



Can you get over how adorable this hotel is? Yes, that's right a hotel! We stayed at Circa 39, a boutique hotel on Miami beach, for the holiday weekend and had the most special time.
Sail to Sable sent me this dress and it couldn't have been more fitting for a summer weekend in Miami.
The best part? No bra or shoes needed- just add some fun jewelry and you're set... Like this customized gold bar necklace or wooden tassel bracelet stack !
