Vaseline Intensive Care | Cure For Winter Skin

October 21, 2014

Winter is such a burden on our skin, and especially on someone’s as sensitive as mine, which is why I’m getting a head start on prepping my skin for the polar months ahead of us. I grew up with my mother preaching me the positive effects of moisturizing in the winter time, if not all the time! And Vaseline® was always in the bathroom cabinet in our household. It still is! And it still works its magic just as well as it did back in the day, but actually even better thanks to Vaseline® Intensive CareTM – a range of lotions that go beyond basic moisturization to deeply moisturize to heal dry skin. The new line is made up of a very special blend of humectants (to draw water into the skin), and healing micro-droplets of Vaseline® Jelly (to lock moisture in). Like original Vaseline® Jelly, these micro-droplets are highly refined, and 100% pure. Together, the humectants and Vaseline® Jelly micro-droplets in the lotions work to deliver a range of moisturization needs. I personally prefer the Intensive CareTM Advanced Repair Fragrance Free because I can actually feel it working as soon as I apply it, and my skin feels soft and supple for a long time afterwards. And I go for Fragrance Free because I can make sure that irritation won’t be a problem at all.
Winter is already rough. We don’t need anything else to make it any rougher.  Vaseline® Intensive CareTM will make sure that isn’t a problem. That and a hot cup of cocoa, of course!

Beach Club Crew

July 28, 2014

I’m quite strapped for time as I finish up moving to my new apartment in Brooklyn, so I’ll let the photos do the talking this time around. A throwback to a few weeks back at a beach club in Connecticut. Living it up waspy east coast style for a weekend was pretty nice. These people have it good, let me tell you. Being around our friend’s kids was quite refreshing. I had to capture every moment. 
I can’t believe its nearly August. Summer still feels like it JUST began for me. Not an end in sight. Best east coast summer so far, I have to admit. Wouldn’t change a thang. Here’s to endless summers and being kids at heart forever. xo
P.S.
Totally behind on posts, I know. So much has happened since these pictures were taken. Look forward to more updates on here soon! Trying my best to catch up amongst the craziness.

Pool Party

July 25, 2014
L*Space one-piece swimsuit (SHOP SIMILAR HERE)
Blackswan crochet shorts (SHOP HERE)
There ain’t nothing like a nice long dip in the pool on a hot summer day in the burbs. This one-piece from L*Space might have given me the funkiest tan lines, but I’m totally okay about it. I love how much it reminds me of a ballerina’s leotard. Brings me back to my dance team days as a kid. My friend Kiara’s cousin’s house made for the perfect suburban weekend getaway. Big backyard, something always grilling on the BBQ, a dog to always cuddle with, good conversation with good people, and an endless supply of beers to sip on while you float in the pool. Now this is why I love AMUUUURICA. 
As work has become busier and busier for me these past few weeks, these sort of weekends are what I try to indulge in the most. To keep my mind sane and regularly refreshed. It’s easy to get burnt out in the city, even as a freelancer who sometimes gets to work out of the comfort of her own bed. The daily grind finds us everywhere we may be. I’m officially moving to my new apartment next week, my parents will be back in town and more projects are piling up. All while constantly coming up with new things to add to the blog. All good things, but for me all good things usually means no sleep and too much coffee. But I’m loving every second of it and just taking it as it comes. 
So now, when’s my next day at the pool going to be?
