Beloved Beauty Products by Apoterra Skincare

This brand has been on my radar for a while. I sing their praises every chance I get, especially to those looking for natural skincare options. It's the company mission to provide "high quality, safe, healthy and affordable skincare products." Sounds good to me. Through their site, you can even see who made your product, when, and from where the ingredients were sourced.  

I've officially incorporated the toner and night cream into my routine. The products listed are the ones I was gifted and absolutely loved. I met with the founders and admired how immensely passionate they are about creating this line. 

The toner smells great and the bottle lasted much longer than anticipated. Head to the site for details on what it's made of and how it makes skin so glow-y. I've come to find that almost anything with rose properties is fantastic for the skin!

I love-love-loved this night cream, or balm technically. It glides on smooth and feels super moisturizing. It leaves a yellow tint, but soaks right into your skin. It's the perfect night moisturizer that feels thick and luxurious without clogging your pores. I woke up to soft, even skin that glows all day.

Last, we have the exfoliating mask. It smells heavenly, a bit like Mexican candy, which I know is a super bizarre description. It's a spicy sweet smell I can't get enough of. It's sort of difficult to spread, but in a weirdly fun, play-dough way. Once spread, it looks like that "vampire facial" a la Kim Kardashian

I've been browsing their site since I received their products. Next on my list to try is their Herbal Detoxifying Steam. It's almost too pretty to use!

A Moment of Dreamy Designer Shoes

Twee Valley High // Designer Shoes

Neiman Marcus brings to mind wonderful, shoe-rrifc memories. I associate it with graduation and growing up. One day, pre-ceremony, my mom took me to this famous department store, full of designer goodies. It felt like a momentous occasion. I glimpsed the glamorous shoes that lay in each lovely corner. As a fan of fashion, it made me to happy to sit among the bright, high-end accessories. That day, we were on a fabulous mission. She wanted me to own Chanel flats, the kind that go with everything. We left with beautiful ballerina slippers and a pair of glittery Guccis on sale. They were a gift, nay a symbol, for newfound adulthood. The extravagance and glamour of the shoes brought me to tears as my mom handed me this gift. There are bloggers who own designer everything, but it may seem silly, as a thrifter and dealmaker, being handed a beautiful designer item meant the world to me, especially at that age.

Although Chanel doesn't sell online, I gathered my current favorite shoes on the Neiman's website. Any of these catch you eye? You can get 10% off your next purchase at Neiman Marcus next time you shop. Just click the link!

Getting My Groove Back

This year had some ups and downs. The job search was tough, but I also traveled with mom and spent holidays with family. Right now, I'm dealing with a mysterious medical situation involving Tallulah. It's crazy stressful, but getting better day by day. Keep your fingers crossed!

Due to stress and holiday treats, I definitely put on weight. It doesn't feel great to grow out of my fabulous dresses. Voodoo Vixen sent me this look and, although it's currently snug, the silhouette made me feel sexy at a time I needed it most. I usually go for A-line silhouettes, but this dress made me feel good about my curves at any size.

I'm really excited for the new year and planning new projects! I hope to get more involved online and "get my groove back" in a number of ways.
