rodan + fields


[hello beautiful sweater in white and black]

I recently had the pleasure of meeting Kelleigh Browd who introduced me to Rodan + Fields skincare.  I was familiar with Drs. Rodan and Fields from their Proactive line for acne, but I didn’t realize they’d launched a line for aging skin!


Aj and I tried out the REDEFINE line for treating lines, pores, and loss of firmness.  Aj’s still in her 20s and not as concerned with lines or firmness, but I’m knocking on 40 and will take all the help I can get!


The little sample packet we received had a cleansing mask, night renewing serum, and lip renewing serum.


We clearly had some fun with the cleansing mask!  It’s a daily cleansing mask, but you only leave it on for a couple of minutes – so not as time consuming as it sounds.  The lip renewing serum though was my favorite of the bunch!  I feel like my lips are perpetually dry, and the serum worked great!!

As Rodan+Fields says – “We are all aging all the time, but what that looks like is up to you.”  If you have questions about the line, check out Kelleigh’s website here!

3v3 118

skin foundation stick– I recently picked up some of this to try… My skin has been super dry and red lately, so I wanted to switch to something moisturizing with slightly more coverage.  I’ve only used it once thus far, but I like it!

ruffle pullover – super obsessed with all things ruffled lately.  I like this cute take on a classic black sweater.

cutaway bootie – so cute and sweet!  The perforated detail and cutaway style make these booties super femme.  They come in black, brown, green, grey, and pink.

Aj’s obsessions

Vila Wide Leg Velvet pants. These are AMAZING for the holidays! Velvet is always a good idea- especially in a dark emerald green- and I’m all about some fancy pants to a party instead of the traditional party dress!

Lace Up Sweater. Super cute detailing on this sweater! Plus, it’s only $50!

Bow Heels. I mean- are these not the cutest!? Plus, I could stand all night long at a party in this heel height! Oh, and they are only $64.

makeup bag essentials

I am no makeup artist- and I honestly hate anything that takes too long or too many products to perfect BUT, I thought I would share what is in my makeup bag and why I love it.IMG_3745.JPGI don’t use any fancy creams, or face washes- I honestly rarely wash my face (insert your squealing eww here) other than just the soap that hits my face in the shower. My skin is super sensitive and I’ve found the less I baby it- the better it behaves.

So, on that note: my makeup bag:

Buxom Luminizer 

I spread this quickly all over my face with just my fingers

Smashbox concealer

For those dark circles under my eyes, and just around my mouth to keep lipstick/glosses from getting weird smudge marks


I have two in my bag- either this Mac one or this Anastasia one. Use it under the cheekbones, jaw line, and any other place you want.

Anastasia Eyebrow pencil

Until I can get in to get my microblading done- this has been my go to.

BareMinerals Eyeshadows

These are the only ones my sensitive eyes can handle. I have them in a few different colors and love them

BareMinerals Eyeliner

Love it. Again, only one that doesn’t seem to break my eyelid out into a weird rash and swell up. My favorite is the plum color but it is hard to find…

Eyelash curler

They don’t sell mine anymore so I’m holding on to it for as long as I can. I’ve heard good things about this one though…

Diorshow Waterproof Mascara

I love this mascara- and yes, I wear waterproof everyday. It is the only way my stick straight eyelashes will hold any curl.


As for lip glosses, I love these, and this one. As for lipsticks, you can’t go wrong with these or these.

let me know if you have any questions!

Self-Portrait floral lace dress.  In love with Self-Portrait dresses lately.  I’m headed to a wedding in September and on the look out for a fun dress.  I stumbled upon this one and I’m in love!  It’s not right for late September, but it’s perfect for right now!

Charlotte Tilbury makeup palette.  I just ordered this and I can’t wait to try it out!  I wanted an all-in-one makeup palette to take on trips and stash in my bag for touch-ups.  And this one has it all!  Also available here.

Vince cashmere cardigan coat.  On sale at Nordstrom now!! A super soft and cozy transition piece for early fall.


Aj’s obsessions

Tunic Dress. Anthro for the win- as usual. Love this throw on dress.

Callalily Kimono Dress. I guess I am in a dress phase. Maybe because they are comfy and cool for this hot summer weather! Love the bold pattern and colors of this one.

Velvet Pleated Midi Skirt. I love velvet and anything in a metallic. This skirt is so pretty. Oh, and it’s under $40.

Tom’s lemon espadrilles.  YASS!!!  I cannot get enough lemons, and these lemon-printed espadrilles are too cute!

Free People mini dress.  Perfect for sipping margs by the pool.  Love the crisp white and feminine embroidery.

Sugar tinted lip treatments.  So many colors to choose from!  And I’ve pretty much bought them all.  I love these tinted lip balms any time of year

Aj’s obsessions

Lace Blouse. The detailing on this top, and for only $60 is amazing. It looks way more expensive than it really is.

Adult-ish Track tee. I love baseball and track tees. They add a little extra something to a basic t-shirt and keep me from looking like I am wearing the same thing every day!

Woodstock Maxi dress. Yes, it is pricey – but wow is it pretty! I am picky about maxi dresses because I don’t want to end up looking frumpy- this one is far from frumpy.


Ash’s obsessions

Madewell striped linen dress. A simple dress that is perfect for summer.  Whether roaming around your hometown or traveling abroad, this dress will be a summer staple!

Ouai wave spray.  Waves for summer, yasss!  Sooo want to try this wave spray.

Soludos lemon espadrilles.  I’m obsessed with lemons, so it’s no surprise that I recently snatched up a pair of these adorable espadrilles– and I love them!!

Aj’s obsessions

Nike Lunarepic Low Flyknit. These are the low-cut version of my normal running shoes. I bought them last week and have worn them for a few runs- they do fit differently- a more secure fit is how I would describe them. So, if you prefer a more supportive running shoe go with the low-cut!

PITUSA Pom Pom Festival Dress. Love this dress for summer! Beach coverup with a cute pair of sandals and you can head into a restaurant no problem.

Gunnar Stripe Tote. Super cute and super affordable tote for summer! Under $60!
