With wedding season in full swing (my own wedding included), keeping my skin and hair healthy are on the top of my to-do list. With weddings come travel, late nights, and maybe a few cocktails– all leaving my skin a little dry, tired and in need of some extra TLC. Thankfully, a few new product samples from the ‘I Definitely Do’ Birchbox created in partnership with Style Me Pretty, have been lifesavers in getting my skin “wedding season” ready.

Whether you are a bride, bridesmaid or attendee, this box has all the essentials for you to be wedding-ready. I am pretty low maintenance when it comes to beauty products, but for my wedding I wanted to make sure my skin had a healthy glow and my hair was glossy. The ‘I Definitely Do’ Birchbox had all of the products I needed to get my skin and hair ready for my big day.

Leading up to the big day, I started using the Vasanti BrightenUp! Enzmatic Face Rejuvenator three times a week. It brightened my skin and gave it that wedding glow. Since I was trying to take care of my skin, I tried to avoid makeup—that is, until I tried the Marcelle BB Golden Glow Cream. It has the perfect coverage and also kept my skin hydrated throughout the day. When I travel, my hair always craves moisture, so when we headed to Arizona for our wedding I made sure to use the Kerastaste Elixir Ultime to give my hair an extra glow and shine.

I have always been a blush girl. I especially love the look of rosy cheeks. Ever since trying the Laura Geller Baked Blush, I am officially hooked. It’s the perfect pink to give your face a natural glow for everyday wear.

Bridesmaids’ gifts can be tough, especially when you have 9 girls standing by your side, like I did. The ‘I Definitely Do’ Birchbox is the perfect gift to go along with a robe to get ‘wedding ready’ together. Now that I tried my first box, I am definitely hooked. Be sure to head to Birchbox to subscribe and your first box will be the ‘I Definitely Do’ Birchbox! You will not regret getting that cute pink box in the mail :)

Head on over to my Instagram to learn how you can win your very own ‘I Definitely Do’ Birchbox, along with the full size products featured in the box AND a set of gorgeous bangles!

NEVER HAVE I EVER

Never have I ever owned a pair of boyfriend jeans.

Have you ever played that game? It is such a fun game to play with good friends.  But seriously, this is my first pair of boyfriend jeans.  I have always stayed clear of the baggy, relaxed style. For reasons I am not sure, but I never found a pair that seemed to fit until I found this distressed pair from DL1961 Denim.  I love the light wash, relaxed fit for that off-duty look. Did you know they have a try-on at home service. All you do is fill out a few questions about your body type and style you are looking for, they send you three pairs of jeans, and you keep the ones you like and send back the ones you don’t! It is shopping made simple, especially for jeans.  Does anyone else have jean shopping phobia?  I seriously get anxiety when I need to find a new pair of denim.

Being on the petite side; there are a few rules I always follow: 1. I search for short, petite or crop styles to eliminate having alterations (I am an instant gratification kind of girl), 2. Wash is everything! You may not know this about me, but I may be the pickiest person when it comes to denim washes, and 3. Quality is key. Making sure that the ankle is actually skinny on skinny jeans, distressing is done correctly so you don’t rip through the holes, and no saggy butts are the must-haves when it comes to finding the perfect pair.

You are in luck because DL1961 is having an extended Memorial Day sale to scoop up all your summer denim styles.  Use the code DLMD30 for 30% off until May 31st.

THE GREAT DEBATE

Gladys Tamez, Lack of Color, and Preston Olivia, to name a few.

These are the cool girl brands that come to mind when I think of buying hats.  I have to admit, I’ve never really been a hat person. It may have to do with my height, but I feel like I can’t see anything above or around me when I wear one. Do any of your shorties out there have the same feelings as I do? For the last couple years, the hat has been  making quite the statement and I have been feeling a little left out of the game. So I need your opinion, is it time to try something new? If so, here are a few of my favorites below. Which one should I try?
