So I recently got a new job! I started last week and I’m loving it. My first day I wore this ensemble. My whole outfit is from Nordstrom. My first day was business casual. I wanted to look professional yet like myself. I hate stuffy suits. They’re boring and not me so I opt’d for color and prints! I always aim to look like the modern stylish young professional I am. Ha! Thank you for reading loves!
2. Peter Thomas Roth FirmX Peeling Gel
After using one of his products and experiencing so much success I wanted to try another one. While on vacation a few weeks ago, my friend introduced me to this Peeling Gel. This is less of a mask and more of a scrub but I had to include it. IT PEELS OFF DEAD SKIN! I love that! You actually see immediate results while using. I fell in love with this product immediately. I personally wouldn’t do this everyday but maybe twice a month since I already do the anti acne mask and use my Clarisonic twice a week. Don’t want to over do it.
3. Freeman’s Charcoal & Black Sugar Facial Polishing Mask
I tried this about a week ago. I randomly walk around Wal-Mart and find these packets by Freeman’s and try them all the time. I loved this one because it’s unique, it’s a scrub and a mask that exfoliates and purifies. It was also an Allure award winning mask in 2013. Definitely a winner in my book.
4. Freeman’s Cucumber Peel-Off Mask
I’ve been using this mask for at least 2 years. It’s clear than peels off to reveal a clear subtle shine. I love that it makes me shine. As a chocolate girl that’s my favorite thing. To look like a piece of milk chocolate is beautiful! HAHA!
I only do the freeman masks when I want to do a little something extra. If I feel my skin needs a boost I’ll do an extra mask or replace my weekly mask with something special. Another thing I love is Vitamin C based products. I’ve found it makes me shine. If you have never, I highly recommend you get a real facial. It’s the best. A little microderm, black and/or white head extraction and vitamin c application is awesome. Thanks for reading!
Sorry for the lack of posts the last 2 weeks. I’ve been going through some major changes. Good ones. I’ll be sharing soon!
Saturday afternoon was EPIC! I don’t have many pics from Saturday that’s how EPIC it was! Brunch at SoCo with this amazing group of young, successful career minded women was amazing. Unlimited mimosas and laughs is always everything and more. I ate a lot and all of that info can be featured here. Below are a few photos from brunch that can also be found on my Instagram! P.S. I have stylish friends!!
Sunday was pretty cool. My friend really wanted me to experience Harlem. To me it was very Chicago Avenue & Ashland when I was 12. LOL! Very interesting, lots of culture but nothing about it was glamorous from the small amount I saw. I was not at all impressed by the area but definitely fascinated by the amazing eclectic crowd. I enjoyed that the most in Harlem.
I took sooo many photos of food. All of my food chronicles including little shops I stopped in are here…
I spent most of my day spending way too much money at Century 21 one of my favorite places in NY! It’s like a bigger better version of my beloved Marshalls! I am obsessed with finding amazing bags so I spent the day searching the racks and counter! Scored two fab bags too for a great price!
I’ve been busy preparing for NY this upcoming weekend. Lots more personal style coming to you soon! Stay tuned!
This past Wednesday I had a day filled with the usual errands of a girl who strives for perfection and fabulousness; Hair, Eyebrows, Brazilian (No Chip Mani was over the weekend). Despite of all these errands I made sure I found time to attend Windy City Blogger’s Happy Hour and let me just say SUPER CHIC! I arrived to the swank Public Hotel located in the Gold Coast. It was beautiful! I found my way to their Library bar that was utterly sickening! It was very professional and the food and drinks were amazing! Shockingly comped us everything during our event and didn’t disappoint! The staff was beautiful so accommodating! If ever I have a need for a hotel they’ll definitely on the top of my list!
