Coming Up With An Effective Weekly Skin Care Routine

There are so many different things you might be doing that could be causing clogged pores or breakouts. By instilling a basic yet effective weekly skincare routine, you should be able to see dramatic improvements in your skin in very little time. In this article, we will discuss some of the keys to coming up with an effectively weekly skincare routine.

Ways To Come Up With One:

1. Come Up With A Face-washing Regimen

When you are looking to come up with a weekly skincare routine, you should be looking to come up with a consistent daily regimen that works. Using a gentle skin cleanser twice per day is the way to go. A lot of people make the mistake of using harsh skin cleansers with ingredients that strip the skin of its natural oils. Instead, you want something that will gently remove impurities and wash away bacteria on your skin. Never allow your makeup to sit on your face at night. This is a major thing to avoid if you want clear and healthy-looking skin.

2. Wear Sunscreen Every Day

Another common mistake people make all of the time is not wearing sunscreen on their faces every day. It’s imperative to wear high-quality sunscreen that is an advertised 30 SPF or higher. This way, you know that you are blocking all of the harmful UV rays that could be negatively impacting your skin in a variety of ways. Not only does it increase wrinkles and other symptoms of aging, but it can dry out your skin and contribute to breakouts in some.

3. Exfoliate Occasionally and Apply Moisturizer At Night

You should be exfoliating at least three times per week. Likewise, you should get yourself a high-quality moisturizer with antioxidants that can help repair your skin at night. You can also look for retinol which can help speed up cell turnover rates. This can help your skin regenerate healthy skin cells and exfoliate the dead skin cells faster to keep your skin looking healthy.

4. Drink Water and Get Sleep

Always drink enough water throughout the day and get a minimum of 8 hours of sleep per night for healthy-looking skin.

By following the various tips above, you should be able to enhance the look and feel of your skin.

PASTEL COLLAR

Necklace & Stacked Rings: Clothed In Scarlet, Skirt: Urban Outfitters, Tank: Target, Denim Shirt: Akira, Sunglasses: Aldo

Obsessed with collar necklaces these days and I love the feminine touch this one adds to the outfit. Ive been into pairing tougher fabrics with lighter accessories, so I love how the leather skirt juxtaposes the delicate rings & necklace!

What have you guys been up to?? Hope everyone had a fabulous weekend!

MALIBU PERFECTION

High-Waisted Bikini Bottom: Urban Outfitters, Bathing suit top: Target, Arrow Ring: Bianca Milov, Gold Rings: Clothed In Scarlet, Sunglasses: Aldo

I spent the entire weekend on the beach in Malibu. My days were filled with great friends, lots of Bon Appetit magazines, and tons of sunshine. Sometimes I cant believe I live in California and can do things like this for the weekend! I will admit that I spent most of my time under an umbrella or in the water I hate sitting out in the sun, I tan waaaaay too quickly!

Also, Im so excited to share this bikini with you guys I have been DYING for a high-waisted one and I think I finally found it. Its the perfect mix between a traditional bikini and a vintage one piece!

Hope you all had a great weekend!

DRAGON PARK

Heres another DCXV tee that I love! I paired it with my go-to shorts & leather jacket and topped off the whole look with these red polka dotted pumps I rarely wear these shoes anymore, but felt inspired to rock them. Theyre uncomfortable (which is rare in my shoe collection, usually thats my top priority!), but they photograph so well!

For those of you that are curious, Im loving LA so far! Wondering if anyone knows about blog meet ups in the area? I would love to meet some LA bloggers!

Hope you all had a fantastic weekend!

ROAD TRIP // PHOTO MEMORIES

So this is it folks, the post youve all been waiting for! Ok, well maybe not all of you, but my Dad really wants to see these picts and well, you have to listen to your Dad! I had such a blast driving across the country with my big brother we saw a lot of beautiful scenery, ate some delicious food, and had an incredible journey:

For those of you driving from Nashville to LA, here are my recommendations (mostly food & sight seeing, I didnt have time to go shopping!):

Amarillo, TX: This was a weird place, so we just embraced the crazy. We went to this tourist trap called Big Texan, it was hilarious and dripping in every Texas stereotype!

Albuquerque, NM: If you dont stop anywhere else, you MUST go to Mary & Titos they even won a James Beard American Classic award! Its authentic, delicious, and local.

Phoenix, AZ: La Grande Orange is one of my favorite spots in Phoenix. A friend of mine took me there last time I was in Phoenix and I just had to go back. They have these delicious english muffins that you MUST try!

Flagstaff, AZ: This place is gorgeous and the drive from Flagstaff to San Diego was the most stunning of the entire trip! Flagstaff has a gorgeous downtown area and Im hoping to go back and explore a little more in the winter months (and maybe get in some skiing as well!). We went to a cute little local coffee shop called Macys.

(most people would just go from Phoenix to LA, but we really wanted to make a detour in San Diego!)

San Diego, CA: Oh San Diego, I see many weekend getaways in our future! We went to a fabulous place called Neighborhood (that has a secret bar in the back!) and Isabels Cantina for brunch. I really wanted to explore the fashion scene, but I didnt have time, so Ill definitely update you next I time I visit!

Sorry for the long post, but this was a great experience that I really wanted to share with all of you! Hope you enjoyed the photos & recommendations 🙂

JEWEL TONES + EMERALD STONES

Ring: Melinda Maria, Dress: BCBG Max Azria, Shoes: Steve Madden, Earrings: Vintage, Jacket: Silence & Noise, Belt: French Connection, Bag: Coach

You all know Im a sucker for gorgeous rings and this one by Melinda Maria is my new obsession because I need more emerald in my life! I paired it with this fabulous blue maxi it was a comfortable, breezy outfit for strolling around downtown LA. My brother was in town and we enjoyed a delicious meal at Alma, an amazing little spot that you all need to check out!

Im editing photos from my road trip, cant wait to share those with you as well! Hope youre all having a fabulous week 🙂

Tee: DCXV, Belt: French Connection, Skirt: Oshi, Bracelet: Gifted 

That’s right folks, my first GIF! My next few posts are going to be a fun series I shot with the amazingly talented Will Vastine and will feature clothing from one of my favorite Nashville brands, DCXV. Have you guys seen the “I Believe in Nashville” murals around town (for you out of towners, you might remember it from this post)? My friend Adrien Saporiti (owner of DCXV) created that mural and has expanded to a clothing line. This tee is is one of my favorites – what can I say? I’m a sucker for a soft gray tee shirt and pretty much anything with french writing on it. He also started a kickstarter campaign to expand his company – be sure to support if you can!

Also, can I just say, these confetti photos might be some of my most favorite blog photos ever – and that’s saying something, considering I’ve been in the game since 2008!

Saturday Market

Jeans: Imogene & Willie, Jacket: French Connection (here’s a similar one), Shirt: Vintage (you can find one similar here), Ring & Earrings: Margaret Ellis, Belt: American Apparel, Shoes: Lucky Brand (here’s a similar pair)

The weather in Nashville has been absolutely wonderful, so I decided to hop on over to the Franklin Farmers Market with my family on Saturday! From farm fresh produce to fun jewelry, this place was the perfect day to spend a weekend morning. My personal favorites were The Biscuit Love Truck, Baya Designs, and Dozen Bakery. Juice Nashville also sells their product there, but they were sold out so I couldn’t get a photo or a juice (bummer!) – however, they are opening up a new store in the Gulch, so be sure to donate to their kickstarter if you want more juice!

Oh! I also added a few more features on the blog – you can now just hover over an image to pin it, “like” or “retweet” a post at the bottom of each one, and comment with disqus! Let me know if you have any issues, I’m still sorting out getting all of my old comments back on the blog.

How was your weekend?

The Trunk + A little Pop

thetrunkprettypop1thetrunkpp5thetrunkpp3thetrunkpp6thetrunkpp7thetrunkpp4

I had such a fabulous time at The Trunk’s fabulous relaunch last weekend! They had the event at Lucy Pop Salon, who rolled out the red carpet and treated all of us to fabulous blow outs and some amazing Pretty Pretty Pop Pop swag. For those of you that don’t know, The Trunk is Nashville’s first mobile fashion truck and it’s owned by rockstar stylist, Abby Franklin. When I say rockstar, I mean it – her client roster includes Michael Jackson, Prince, Bon Jovi, and Madonna to name a few!

I absolutely love how Abby revamped The Trunk by curating it to include some amazing (and affordable!) women’s pieces, a great collection of menswear, and jewels that will blow your mind! To find out when they’ll be in your neighborhood, be sure to follow them on twitter @TheTrunkNash!
