House of Harlow

I'm not a fan of the House of Harlow clothing because the style is very "boho chic" but I do love the accessories! I own a necklace from the line and my current obsession is the House of Harlow "Chelsea" sunglasses that Nicole Richie has been spotted wearing everywhere. They also come in a nude color but I'm all about the black colored ones! Do any of you own these? I must have them!

This Weekend...

... I plan on sleeping in every day. - Probably won't look as glamorous, though.

P.S. I want that eye mask and turquoise ring.

Eye creams

I know I'm still young but just the other day i looked in the mirror and saw crease under my eye that is made obvious when I smile.--- Not like a normal crease, but more like a huge line the shoots through my under eye area. I know its genetics because my mother, aunt, grandma, etc all have delicate under eye areas that have either sagged or have several wrinkles-or both.
So I kind of had a mini meltdown and immediately started buying under eye creams. I thought I could just rely on my facial moisturizers but now I've stepped it up a notch.
I purchased the Strivectin eye cream which is supposed the reduce wrinkles, firm the skin, reduce puffiness and dark undereye circles.  In conjunction with that I have also been using L'Occitane Immortelle Eye Balm. It is supposed to have the same results as the Strivectin cream. And let me tell you-- it's working. I used Strivectin first for like 2 weeks and then I switched over to L'Occitane. I think L'Occitane worked better because it seemed to really absorb into my skin. Either way, I'm switching between the two to try to achieve optimal results. I hope it works before I panic and start getting "Housewives of Beverly Hills crazy" with botox.
Are there any creams out there that you have tried and recommend?

Keratin Blowout

So after months and months of research I finally caved and got a Keratin treatment done on my hair. I was very hesitant at first because of the stories of certain treatments containing formaldehyde.  However, my friend finally recommended a hairdresser that has had experience with this kind of thing. 

I ended up getting the Global Keratin treatment.  and boyyyyyy do I recommend it! I always tell people how curly my hair is and they don't believe me because of how often I straighten it. Well- this time I have pictures to prove it. Sure, its a bit exaggerated because no one should brush out curls- it just looks like a hot mess.  But I took a before and after picture to display the results.

It's been about a week since I got it done and I'm still trying to adjust to how easy my morning routine has become! I can literally walk out of the shower without applying hair products and my hair will not make me look like a crazy woman.  I love it! Have any of you tried it??

Nike Vintage Sneakers

Last month I was on a mad hunt for the vintage Puma and Nike running shoes. Fortunately, I was able to find a black pair of Pumas that came close to what I was looking for. Then yesterday I receive the J.Crew catalog in the mail and I swear its like the shoes Gods were listening to me!
J.Crew released a vintage Nike shoe collection and the shoe I want comes in two colors and I want both!
