Key West Aloe

I recently introduced some new products to my daily skin care regimen that I have been dying to share with you all.  Because of my sensitive, acne-prone skin, I am always hesitant to try new facial products.  I use a topical acne medication that does a great job of keeping my acne at bay, but the dryness it causes is sometimes overwhelming!  I have been looking for a good nightly moisturizer that won’t break me out, and that I can use in conjunction with my current acne medication.  After many attempts (and failures) at finding a good nightly moisturizer, I finally hit the jackpot with Key West Aloe’s Night Moist.

Night Moist is made with 80% Aloe Vera, which is naturally age-defying and moisturizing.  It is creamy, but quickly dries after applying.  I can tell a huge difference since I started using it.  My skin feels amazing, and no more crazy dryness!


Another daily struggle of mine is under eye puffiness.  I have been using Key West Aloe’s Cucumber Under Eye Gel and absolutely love the way it feels on my skin.  It is just so cooling and soothing, which is just what I need after a long day of staring at a computer screen.  It smells amazing (just like cucumbers!) and a little goes a long way since all you need is a tiny dab under each eye.  I have definitely noticed a decrease in puffiness, and it’s one of the things I look forward to each night because of how great it feels!

GIVEAWAY ALERT!  I am teaming up with Key West Aloe to bring one lucky follower a free full-sized Night Moist!  I just know you’re going to love it.  Head on over to my Instagram to enter!  Complete giveaway rules can be found here.


Flirty Florals




Is anyone else craving spring as much as I am?  I love wearing floral prints all year round, but spring is always a good excuse to go all out and have fun with bold, all-over floral prints and pretty spring colors.  This dress is one of my faves, and is currently on major sale at H&M (under $10…you cannot beat that!).  It’s super comfy, and can be dressed up or down.  I usually try to pair bright outfits with more neutral accessories (although it is sometimes fun to add a contrasting color or print).   With the weather getting warmer, I will be going back to this outfit over and over!

Classic Trench



One staple that everyone should have in their wardrobe is a classic trench coat.  They are so versatile, and they instantly dress up any outfit.  The best thing about them?  They will never go out of style!  Trends come and go each season, but you could have a coat like this for decades and still look chic.  It’s a truly timeless piece.

Black and Grey



It’s warming up here in Texas, so we have been spending more and more time outside.  I think it’s funny how just a few months ago I was so ready for cold weather… now I am craving spring!  I love pairing relaxed-fit, distressed jeans with cute heels for a dressed up/edgy look.  Add some chunky jewels and a trendy bag and you are ready to hit the town!
