    One Weekend, Two Dresses

    So last weekend I was rocking the dresses. On Saturday I had a new dress to wear, and on Sunday I went to the symphony, so I wanted to dress-up. I’m also still recovering from hand surgery, and dresses are so much easier to put on than pants. Saturday I picked up this beauty at Nordstrom. I’ts by the brand Hinge, which is a brand exclusive to Nordstrom. I really like the vintage feel of this dress. It’s got a 60s/70s boho feel to it, but on the other hand, the print wouldn’t be out of place for the 30s because its geometric and classically feminine because of the flowers.…

I’ve had constant numbness and occasional pain. Sometimes I wake up in the middle of the night and my hands are so numb they don’t feel like they’re a part of my body anymore. I guess it was all the years of typing papers for college and grad school (one semester in grad school I had to write/type three 15 page+ papers for finals), not to mention my needle-point hobbies that did it. A few months ago I’d had enough.…

    My Favorite Skincare Obsession: Face Masks

    When it comes to face masks, I really just can’t help myself. Its my favorite skincare item, and the thing I always want to treat myself to. There are face masks for every occasion. Dry skin, too much skin texture, acne, clogged pores, and even dull skin; there’s a mask for that! Currently I have several masks on rotation. They are primarily clarifying, hydrating, and exfoliating masks. Clarifying Even though I have dry skin, at least once a week I need a good clarifying mask session. Especially in the summer. Sunscreen really does a number on my pores and skin texture. When I need a good pore clean-out, these are…
