Ultimate Skincare Routine

Hope everyone is staying safe and healthy! During our quarantining I’m trying to do my best at taking extra care of myself, including my skin. A big part of this is proper diet, lots of water and most importantly good skincare! I wanted to share my current must haves by one of my favorite brands Image Skincare. I’ve been a lover of this line for around 5 years now and am obsessed with their ORmedic line. My absolute must haves are the lip balm, it keeps my lips moisturized all day! And the total resurfacing mask, minimizes my pores, softens my skin and improves my skin tone.

Holy grail lip balm!

I use the face wash morning and night, followed by the vitamin C. In the mornings I’ll use the SPF after the vitamin C.

2 or 3x a week I’ll alternate between the exfoliating wash and exfoliating mask to keep my skin smooth and glowy!

What’s your favorite skin care product?

My LBD

Tis’ the season of staying indoors, but who’s to say that will stop us from shopping! I’ve found the cutest online store, for inexpensive and trendy clothing, so I had to share! This dress is one of my all-time new, favorite little black dresses from Femme Luxe. The one-shoulder style is so flattering, and the firey designed puff sleeve adds an extra oomph to the outfit. Every woman needs a LBD, so why not make it stand out. I styled this dress with one of my best friends collaborative shoe design, The Urban Gal x Cecconello, and I have to say this is one of the comfiest heels ever! The faux leather is so soft and stretchy, and the strap around the heel keeps it in place even if the wrap gets loose. A total comfy and boss babe look!

What New Show to Watch?

I’m sure we have all had the same conversations with our friends, family, co-workers and even strangers!

“What new show should I watch,” “What book should I read,” “Where should we eat tonight,” “Which Podcasts do you listen too,” and “What movie should I watch tonight?”

Well, I’ve found the perfect app that allows you to connect with your friends, family, and strangers where you can put all of your favorites in on convenient location! Friendspire is actually a super-cool invention, that makes you think “why didn’t I think of that,” it allows me to rate and leave a review for TV shows, Movies, Podcasts, Books and Restaurants. Making it easy to see what some of your friend’s favorites are.

Especially today, people are being quarantined to their homes and running out of things to read and watch, making this an even more perfect time to check out and download Friendspire. Think a social media app to connect you with other users, but also using it as a source of information and recommendations. I can tell you this, I’ve been loving it and even created a pretty thorough profile sharing only my favorites!

My Friendspire’s Show List

As you can tell I love shows that provide me a comedic relief, such as Workaholics, Dave and Bob’s Burgers. But also throwing in some fantasy like the Originals and Lucifer. I can tell you all of these shows are only my favorites! And all can be seen on Hulu or Netflix.

My Friendspire’s Movie List

I’m not as big of a movie person, I think its harder for me to find several hours watching one thing, the commitment of a movie is too much for me. hahaha, but nonetheless I still wanted to share a few of my favorites like Shrek 2, The Count of Monte Cristo and of course Lord of the Rings.

 

And you can even make a playlist catered for whatever mood or setting you want. Here is “Aroon’s Night In,” as you can tell I’m a huge fan of comedy shows. And if you have not seen Dave, with Lil Dicky in it, you MUST! It’ll have you crying of laughter, available on Hulu.

Introlift Girls Night

What’s better than a girls night out? A girls night out getting pampered at Introlift Medspa. As many of you may know, I love my natural cosmetics and beauty treatments, in one of my past posts, I go into detail about my filler and all of the filler work I have had done. And today I want to share one of my new favorite medical spas.

I recently had an Aqua facial at Introlift, and can easily say it was the best facials I’ve ever received. From the service, environment, esthetician and my glowing skin after, it was top quality. So when Introlift hired on Plastics Media to coordinate an Influencer Girls Night, I was all for it!

A night full of delicious food, drinks, mini treatments and goodie bags!

I decided to try the Exilis skin tightening for my arms, an area that I always struggle with at the gym. It was quick and painless and I love all of the different treatments and technology they offer.

What is the Aqua Facial?

“This treatment is the only hydradermabrasion procedure that combines cleansing, exfoliation, extraction, hydration and antioxidant protection simultaneously, resulting in clearer, more beautiful skin with no discomfort or downtime. Start your skin maintenance program now with the RF Aqua Face Lift treatment to slow down your skin’s aging process and delay the need for invasive procedures.”

Luau Bridal Shower Invitations! Oh Wow!

I’m sure some of you have received a cute invitation sometime recently, to honor a close friend or relatives’ wedding ceremony. And if not, I’m sure you will soon, as wedding season is upon us and late summer and early fall are the most popular times to host a wedding. One of my best friends just so happens to be having her wedding this season and I could not have been more excited to open up my cute wedding and bridal shower invitation!

 

Today’s blog post will be a fun one, as I wanted to share this fun bridal shower invitation site I’ve recently discovered! As you know, here in Miami, everything is tropical, so of course I was drawn to the Luau Bridal Shower Invitations section. And what better place to look, than Basic Invite. Basic Invite is a free site that allows you to completely customize any invitation and take some stress away from planning the big day! And when I say completely customize, I mean it! They have nearly every color imaginable and over 40 different colors of envelopes. Now I don’t plan on having my own wedding anytime soon, but knowing you can have your all in one wedding invitation and bridal shower creation process, just a click away, definitely makes things easier! But I do know every girl has her wedding Pinterest board on deck, so planning ahead doesn’t hurt either.

I think one of my favorite parts about Basic Invite is their Seal & Send Wedding Invitations. I know I had to recently RSVP to my best friend’s wedding, and it was actually such a fun little process, to check off the card and send it back with my RSVP! Basic Invite actually has an invitation that prints the guest’s addresses on the front of them, so you don’t even need an invitation set! Cute, fun and saving paper! And of course, after the events, you’ll need to make sure to send all of your guest’s bridal shower thank you cards, which you can create in a similar process as the original bridal shower invitations.

They also give you the ability to create your wedding website, where guests can be directed to your site to get all the details needed!

Being a fellow Pinterest lover and all things girly, of course, I had to share some of my own favorite designs from the site. And aside from their stunning Luau Bridal Shower Invitations, my absolute favorite designs are some of their custom, clear, business cards and invitations.

Cannabis For Your Face?!

Nowadays everything seems to be CBD! And would have ever guessed cannabis would have such amazing health benefits for your skin also! I first heard about a cannabis facial from the lovely ladies at Clean Start in Miami where I came across Lex, the esthetician, who had been showing her amazing before and after photos from the CBD facial. My skin is mostly hormonal, meaning every few weeks I’ll tend to get a bit of a breakout, which will then go away once my hormones are back to normal. It just so happened I was going through this phase when I went in to see Lex, who gave me this CBD facial and let’s just say, I was glowing!

The whole experience was luxurious, relaxing and I felt like my skin was getting so many amazing benefits from the different treatments Lex did. Lex used a fresh batch of natural, vegan and organic products during my facial which had a combined 2,000mg of CBD. CBD is used in skincare to help rebalance your skin and has been known to help those with rosacea, eczema and hormonal acne. During my facial, I had everything from extractions, exfoliating mask, moisturizing mask, light therapy, and a facial massage. And once the facial was over I felt in such a state of relaxation and I could tell my skin was glowing from the inside out.

Sidenote: the CBD does not affect your physical or mental state in any way whatsoever.
