Over the years I’ve learned a lot about my skin and my body, and what products work best mostly through trial and error. But as we start a new year, I want to take my grooming regimen a step further by actually examining the products I use and what ingredients they contain in order to make sure I’m treating myself to only the best and most natural ingredients. That’s why I started my research into clean beauty and skincare.
Holiday season is here and that means you’ll most likely find yourself with a few party invites that require you to get dressed up. I personally love this time of the year. Not only is it the perfect time to celebrate a successful year with friends, family, and colleagues, but it’s also a chance to take liberties with your personal style and show people that you can really dress!

COS is one of those brands I can always rely on for my wardrobe staples. Their clothing is modern and minimal but in an elevated way that still makes them stand out. I know I tend to favor bolder prints over solids, but there’s something about the architectural design and simple sophistication in COS clothing that makes me really appreciate and notice their garments. It’s a kind of understated elegance that’s seen in their attention to detail, strong silhouettes, and choice of fabrics and textures in the clothing they produce.
Well… it’s happened! Not sure where you guys are from but here in New York it went from mild fall temps straight into winter chill seemingly overnight! Now if fall is the season I love dressing for because I get to layer, winter is the season that really puts my layering skills to the test. The cold weather test, that is, because aside from style your layers need to keep you warm too. Luckily I’ve already got a head start on my winter wardrobe planning thanks to the new options for cold weather dressing now available at Walmart.
