Summer Evening Outfit

 Sorry the lighting isn't so great! It's 6pm here in California and I decided to take a few pictures of this outfit before heading out. It's been SUPER hot here the last few days (around 100 degrees) but at night there is a little bit of a breeze, being why I went for the quarter length sleeves. 
It's pretty much illegal to go out at night without heals on here in Cali  ;)

Organic Argan Oil


Product- 10/10 Consistency- 10/10 Texture- 10/10 Longevity- 10/10 Application 10/10

Where to begin!! I've used high end products on my face for as long as I can remember until about 6 months ago when I decided to try out the natural thing regarding all products other than makeup. With that said, a friend introduced me to Argan Oil as a face serum. This stuff is AMAZING! In the morning, after washing my face with my daily face wash, I will apply a VERY small amount to my finger and pat it all over my face until completely absorbed. At night time, I will apply a little more than daytime because I can go to bed with oil on my face without anyone thinking I have a serious problem with oily skin -lol-. Although I have yet to try this anywhere else on my body, i've been told that this is also great for cuticles, hair, problematic skin areas and much more! I will let you guys know if I begin to use this elsewhere. I purchased mine on iherb.com and this bad boy was only $12.94. I'm hooked <3
*Side-Note- Make sure if/when purchasing you look for the USDA Organic symbol (you can kind of see it on the bottom left of this product.)

Loreal - Royalty Reinvented

I am IN LOVE with this color for summer! The quality of this polish is amazing and the color is flawless. When applying this look I did one clear coat of Sephora top coat (yes, as a base) and one thick coat of the Royalty Reinvented by Loreal. I prefer doing one thick coat when applying my nail polish color vs doing two thin or "average" coats. You can pick this color up at your local Walgreens or CVS pharmacy =)
How cute is the name of this polish?! Royalty Reinvented <3
Product- 9/10 Pigmentation- 10/10 Texture- 10/10 Longevity- 8/10 Application 10/10

Side-Note- I have yet to find a great organic brand of nail polish so if any of you have suggestions please leave a comment below =)

My Go-To Lotions

Product- 10/10 Consistency- 10/10 Texture- 10/10 Longevity- 10/10 Application 10/10

 Angel Baby Lotion is my go-to lotion for all over the body. This will give you complete moisture all day long until you shower it off. You will be surprised how much better you feel all around when changing all of your products to natural and organic formulas. Did I mention it smells amazing?! ;) You can find this product on iherb.com. This website is great for all natural and organic products. 



Product- 10/10 Consistency- 10/10 Texture- 10/10 Longevity- 10/10 Application 10/10

This hand cream also works wonders! It is a little on the thick side although the mostiue level is unreal. Shea butter is one of the main ingredients in this product to give you an idea of the texture. Enjoy! ;)

*$ide-Note - When it comes to food, yes, organic is often more expensive than non-organic but when it comes to beauty products it is often less expensive ;)

Temecula Winery

My fiancé and I =) Throughout this blog, I will also share some fun pictures of a day in the life with me! This picture was taken a couple of weeks ago here in Temecula, California at South Coast Winery. As you may know, Temecula is famous for their wineries and I am a big wine girl! If you ever get the chance to come this way, the wineries are definitely one of the main places I would recommend visiting.

Summer Shoes


Product- 9/10 Quality- 10/10 Break-in Time- 8/10 Longevity- 10/10 
I look for a lot of support when it comes to purchasing any type of shoe. Whether i'm going to the beach or going to be traveling in an airport all day, I know these shoes will be stable while looking fabulous. You can find these beauties at dsw.com. The only downfall about these shoes is that they do take a while to break-in. The are so form-fitting and sturdy causing them to be a little uncomfortable for the first few wears. 

Organic Apple Cider Vinegar


Product- 10/10 Taste- 5/10 Longevity- 10/10 Application 10/10
ORGANIC Apple Cider Vinegar has so many amazing benefits including adding shine to your hair, clearing up blemishes, removing stains from your teeth, relieving the burn from a sunburn and used as a massage treatment. This vinegar is also extremely beneficial when ingested, giving ones body a cleanse while balancing your entire inner system. Apple cider vinegar fights colds and infections while giving you a boost of energy in just ONE SIP! The shelf time on this stuff is unreal! You can stock up without worrying about the expiration date (which is SO awesome). The only rough side about this product is that the taste is definitely something you have to get used to. BUT, it is totally worth it so the taste is canceled out in my ratings =) You can purchase this product (or one similar) at your local health food store or online.
