{Beauty} Beat Dry Winter Skin With Olay Moisture Ribbons Plus #ad

Hey Delights!

It has been getting colder and colder in Chicago with temps dropping to single digits some days, so suffice it to say, winter is definitely here. And while I am obsessed with skin care all year round, I definitely take my moisture game up a few notches to keep dry, itchy skin at bay during these cold winter months.

Meditating first thing in the morning has become a daily ritual for me. And I like to carry that zen mojo with me throughout the morning by following up my meditation with some self care, me time in the shower. So I create a spa like vibe by lighting some candles and playing soft music. And I love lavishing myself with body cleansers that not only clean but also smell good and it’s a major bonus if they leave my skin moisturized in the process.

So for a couple of weeks now, I have taken the Olay Winter Skin Challenge and have been using their Olay Moisture Ribbons Plus body washes. I love how they smell and the foamy lather from them feels rich and decadent and they leave my skin so soft.

{What I Wore} All Velvet Everything

Hey Delights!

I finally rocked this amazing black velvet dress by Ellen Tracy that has been sitting in my closet for at least a year and a half. The dress is a size 16, which I believe is the highest size that the brand stocks and although I am not a size 18/20, it fits me perfectly. I found the same dress in this exact size here.

My AMAZING blue velvet boots are currently on sale for less than $18! So I ordered them in the wine color which I had been debating about for weeks but at this price, it was a no brainer.

{Life} Where I Stand - November 2017 Recap

Hey Delights!

December has arrived with a bang and although it feels like it is already moving way too fast, I am super excited. We picked our tree up last weekend and I am in the process of getting it all decorated. But even as it sits bare and fragrant as I am writing this post, it still just makes me smile.

p.s I love these Sateen Jeans c/o - another look wearing them.  And I have stocked up on this t-shirt. It is super affordable (currently on sale 2/$12) and of course you can never have too many, so I have it in plain colors and the animal print. I also ordered a navy one and this strip version today to pick up in store later. And the compliments seriously never stop with these studded boots

Anyway, I am writing this recap later than I originally planned but I am not stressed by that. My goal is simply to keep moving forward and get the things done and not fret and regret.

So, to recap November's goals...

A {Bloggers Life} Connect & Grow in a Modern Social World

Hey Delights!

As a blogger there are so many different things that I constantly find myself working on. One of them is staying up on all of the ever changing ways that I can improve my site to better connect with and provide content of value for you, my dear readers. So I try to read up on blogging, social media and the like as much as I can. And one of the sources that I always reach for is Modern Social Magazine.

I have been a reader of Modern Social Magazine since I first highlighted it back in 2015. And there has never been a time that I have read an issue and not found myself being exposed to something new, whether it be a new perspective, conferences to consider attending or a new blogger/entrepreneur that I love. There is always something of value to be found.

{What I Wore} Deer Heart

Hey Delights!

If you saw my Christmas decor it’s probably pretty obvious that I am obsessed with deer, so this sweater should come as no surprise to you. While I get extra corny with my ugly Christmas sweater, for my everyday seasonal sweaters, like the Style & Co embellished sweater I am rocking here and the one I wore here, I like to keep it kitschy but cute but not over the top.

Here are some similar cute styles that I am currently loving. I recently purchased the off the shoulder white one. It is my first purchase from one of the foreign brands that I have been wanting to check out for awhile now, so I will definitely share it & size deets, etc when it arrives.
