It was pretty hard to take pictures inside the shows. I didn’t get any pictures at the Rebecca Minkoff show, so I hope you guys watched the show live streaming here. When I got to the Kate Spade NY presentation, my heart just about leaped out of my chest at the sight of all the bows. I was in bow heaven! Can’t until it all comes out this Spring!

Pink Cat

Sweatshirt Opening Ceremony, Skirt Paul & Joe Sister, Booties DVF, Bag c/o Rebecca Minkoff, Collar Forever21, Watch Michael Kors

I was instantly drawn to this sweater at Opening Ceremony. There was something so cute and fun about a pink cat sweater. I already had my eye on these sweaters ( one, two, three, four ) but gave in for this one. Since it could easily resemble something from my 3rd grade closet, I dressed it up with a gold skirt and black booties.

Daily Skin Care Routine

DDF Salicylic Wash
Clarisonic Mia
Decléor Harmonie Moisturizer 
Decléor Hydra Floral Eye Cream

One thing my mom always taught me growing up was to take really good care of my skin. I have always made time and saved up my money for good skin care products. I know that there are a lot of great products (and more affordable ones) out there, but these are the products that have stuck out against all the rest.

The DDF Salicylic face wash has improved my skin tremendously. I have yet to break out since I started using it! Most of the time I use a product, think it’s working and then it’s almost as if my skin becomes immune to it and breaks out again. Not this one.

I am now a loyal user to this face wash and recommend it to everyone I know. Although the DDF face wash works wonders, it really dries out my skin.  I have always had dry skin, so it made it even worse. (but hey, I’ll take dry skin over a breakout any day) I am a huge fan of moisturizing. I moisturized my face and neck at least twice a day (once in the morning, once at night).  The Decléor Harmonie Moisturizer is by far my favorite moisturizer. I have used products that make my skin burn, make my skin oily, make me break out, etc. This moisturizer is really gentile, light and gets the job done.  I also use Decléor’s Hydra Floral Eye Cream. I am really prone to getting dark circle and under eye bags. I dab this eye cream on in the morning and can feel and see the difference once I do! The last part of my skin care routine is using Latisse. I know this does not really have anything to do with skin, but it’s part of my routine. I always get asked questions about my eyelashes. No, I don’t wear fake ones.  Latisse has drastically increased both the length and thickness of my lashes. I used it for about 5 months and then stopped because my lashes became too long. Even though many people said that my lashes would go back to normal, they  have stayed long and full. It’s definitely worth the investment.

One part of my skin care routine that is not a product, is my Clarisonic.  My girlfriends kept telling me about how they were using a Clarisonic and it really helped improve their skin. I’m not very good at exfoliating or using masks, so I thought that this would be an easy way to get everything done all at once and still keep using the products I love and that work for me.

*I have bought and used all of the products on my own. This is my own opinion and I am not paid to promote any of these brands/products.
