Life Lately...

Happy Monday! I hope you all had a great weekend. I wanted to share what I've been up to lately today on the blog! :)

I went to my first Bruins game of the season with my friend Ellie and had a blast! Weren't our seats great?

Last Sunday, I was treated to the target facial peel at Skoah on Newbury Street thanks to CBH Communications. I had never had a peel before, so I was a little nervous that it would turn my face super red or that it would be too harsh for my sensitive skin. My "personal skin trainer" was fantastic and answered all of my questions to prepare me for the peel. It tingled a bit when she first applied it, but it wasn't intense and went away within about a minute. My face wasn't red at all after either and she told me that I would see the results of the peel for weeks afterwards. The next day, my face felt as smooth as a baby's bottom, and my skin has been so clear and evenly toned since the peel that I've been able to skip my face powder and go "naked" which is an amazing feeling! I definitely recommend the peel and I will be getting one again in a few months when my skin is ready for it. 
so happy with how my skin looks!

What I Wore: Leopard & Berry

Today I'm sharing one of my go-to fall outfits for dinner dates or drinks with friends. I realized on the day I shot this outfit that it was probably the last time I'd be able to wear a dress without tights until April, so I was soaking it all in while I could! :) This grey knit dress with a tiny diamond pattern is super easy to throw on with my favorite leopard print scarf, Chanel pumps and faux leather moto jacket. I like to add a pop of color with my new berry purse and emerald crystal wing statement earrings. It's comfortable and chic layering at its best! Let me know what you think of my ensemble in the comments below. :)

What I Wear: Makeup

It's been over a year since I last shared my daily makeup routine on the blog, so I thought I'd put together a list of all my favorites in case anyone is curious about what I've been wearing on my face in all of my recent outfit posts! I always post links to the various items in my outfit, but not usually to the makeup I'm wearing, so I've put together a slideshow of all of my favorites along with a few close up photos of my face so you can see the makeup on me. Let me know what you think of my favorites - and which makeup picks you can't live without - in the comments below!

Physician's Formula Mineral Powder in Buff Beige is the perfect shade for me and doesn't make my skin break out like liquid foundations and heavy powders do.

MAC Fluidline in Blacktrack and Diorshow Mascara in 090 are my absolute favorite makeup products in the world.
