Today’s post is brought to you by a recent funk that I had been in, and I was desperate to snap out of it ASAP. I’m sure you’ve had days like this, yeah? Sometimes it happens for what seems like no reason.

I want to share all of the things that I do to snap out of it quickly. Before I get into it, I’m not implying that I am a professional when it comes to therapy or counseling. I don’t have it all together, but these are methods that really help.


Charleston, South Carolina had been at the top of my travel list within the states for a long time. Something about the gorgeous architecture, southern charm, PINK, and the beaches just spoke to me.

And it didn’t disappoint. I’ll be recapping our trip with all of the details such as where to eat, what to see, etc. soon.

But for now, let’s talk outfits. I started shopping for this trip about a month before we left and I wanted my Charleston wardrobe to reflect the atmosphere: feminine and light (because it was hot).

Never go away from your personal style or buy things that you would never wear otherwise…this is my biggest tip. You will not see me wearing seersucker or a shifty tunic, even in the south. Think your style with a twist. (more…)

Let’s talk about the best mask that you can sleep in… The GLOW RECIPE WATERMELON MASK. Omg is this good. I’ve never met a mask that I can sleep in that does not get all over my pillow…more on that in a bit.

This mask is made of watermelon extracts & is packed with hyaluronic acid (to plump + hydrate) and AHAs (to exfoliate). All the fruit extracts do good for sensitive skin – and some even are meant for/used for reddened or sensitized skin, which I have.

The consistency feels like a jelly and it is cooling when applied.

The directions are to apply to a clean, dry face and left on overnight and reveals glowing, smooth skin. I recommend testing it out for 30 minutes before you decide to sleep in it. Just in case. But I experienced zero irritation.

When you wake up, wash the residue away with a warm damp cloth and you’re good to go! My skin felt so smooth and bright the next day. Love!

Now let’s talk about the packaging. It is seriously the most luxurious packaging I’ve seen for a face mask. The jar is heavy and just FEELS expensive. It’s gorgeous just sitting on your bathroom counter and/or for Instagram pics. 😉

Have you tried this mask? Let me know what you think!
