This holiday season I had the amazing opportunity to work with Verbena, an adorable boutique in Ann Arbor! I purchased the dress with 10% off from the store and then I was able to borrow the handbag for the night. It was so much fun, and both the dress and the bag fit perfectly! I put this outfit together as a date night/dinner out/even holiday party outfit that’s really simple while having a more mature feel to it! On the other hand you can style the dress to be more party than dinner party. Add a chain bag for a little glam factor or a classy clutch to change things up! Either way you will definitely appreciate both pieces this season!

Also, you guys can get 10% off on these items and more! I absolutely love this store and everything that they have! Go to verbenaannarbor.com for more info and enjoy all of the things they have to offer!

The Simple Way to Healthy Skin!

Hello My Beauties!

I have been meaning to write this post for a long time so sorry for the delay! I think it was about a month ago that I tweeted out to @SimpleSkincare and within the day they responded asking me what products of theirs I use. So after telling them they quickly sent me an adorable little package containing the moisturizer and foaming cleanser that I use, as well as a couple of other goodies and the sweetest note ever! Anyways, this (very, very) late post is going to be all about those products and what I like/dislike about them!

Foaming Cleanser 

I always have to have a foaming cleanser wether I am using Simple or not. This one I particularly like because it is very gentle and VERY foamy, which makes it appear to be doing its job. Depending on your skin type it might leave your skin a little tight after washing, but that is why I always follow up with the Replenishing Moisturizer.

Replenishing Moisturizer

Next up in my #NoMakeupWakeup routine is to use this moisturizer after I have removed all the built up residue from my face. Great image, right? Back to the product, I like this moisturizer more than I do most, but it is not my favorite. I don’t know if some of their other moisturizers are slightly better, this one just caught my eye because it said that it would last for 12 hours. One thing that I dislike about it is that it kinda smells. Not terribly, but faintly of cardboard. It also takes a little bit longer to soak into the skin than other moisturizers I have used. But if those two things don’t really bother you, go for it! If they do, I recommend trying a different one from their line or a different brand all together.

Eye Makeup Removing Wipes

I really like this wipes, and they are especially designed for eye makeup, so they have a slightly more dynamic shape to them. I usually just use the foaming cleanser to remove my face and eye makeup, but if I am wearing eyeliner or a heavy mascara I am sure to whip these babies out! I don’t have a lot of different brands to compare them to, but they do their job perfectly fine in my opinion!

Facial Wipes

I then got a couple of packs of the facial wipes, which work really well! I find that my skin type doesn’t agree well with any kind of wipe (I just usually use the eye ones), but I would definitely recommend them if you are in need of some not-so-expensive wipes. I can’t stop using them after dance performances! Once again I do not have a whole lot of experience with facial wipes, but I think that these are definitely a keeper! I mean, I have already been through a whole pack of them!

So that was that! I hope that you liked what you read, definitely comment below with opinions, suggestions, anything! I love hearing from you guys! And make sure to check out Simple Skincare and try some of the products for yourself!

P.S. I really want to try their Revitalizing Eye Roll-On. If any of you have tried/use/love it please comment!

*These products were sent to me without payment in response to my reaching out to SimpleSkincare*
