Those of you who truly know me know how much I LOVE Lilly Pulitzer. Throughout college, you could spot me at sorority brunches wearing a Lilly Pulitzer dress, even when it was snowing. For birthdays and Christmas, my friends would buy me Lilly Pulitzer planners and candles in my favorite prints. My Tri Delta paddle and cooler for my 21st birthday was even painted in Lilly Pulitzer prints. Any time the Lilly Pulitzer team collaborates with a store, I am all about it. I think I bought out Target when Lilly Pulitzer collaborated with them two springs ago.

With that being said, the Lilly Pulitzer collaboration with Pottery Barn is my all time favorite collaboration ever. Pottery Barn and Lilly Pulitzer are two of my favorite stores and produce the highest quality products, which is why I love this collaboration. All of the products are pure perfection and high quality. Everything was created with beautiful detail and I have zero complaints about this collaboration. In fact, I want to buy everything and wish I could, but for now, I will “window shop” on my computer. Lilly Pulitzer and Pottery Barn released the most amazing products for Pottery Barn, PB Teen, and Pottery Barn Kids. I am sharing my favorite picks below, AKA everything I wish I could buy! This collection is the perfect way to add some color to your home or backyard for spring and summer!

I know I lied and said I wouldn’t be posting a blog post this week since I am taking the GRE on Monday, but I couldn’t keep our new fur baby a surprise! Everyone, meet Ella, our new puppy. Ella is a 13 week old goldendoodle and flew all of the way from Manassas, Virginia to meet us. We bought her from Capital City pups and had the absolute best experience working with them. We are so in love with Ella and can’t wait to make so many memories with her. I will be sharing more details about her with all of you shortly, aka after I take the GRE and get back to my regular blogging schedule. Stay tuned for TONS of puppy pictures, I already have a million on my camera and phone. If you have favorite dog products, please let me know since we are first time dog owners! PS: my denim top is $27 and my favorite jeans are on sale for $17.50! Shop my look at the end of the post.

It is currently a blizzard outside my window right now and I am loving it! We hardly had a winter this year so I am grateful we are finally getting the precipitation we so need. I am currently on a late start from work because it is actively snowing and the roads are covered in snow. Side note, most people don’t know that it does snow in Arizona, especially in the Northern regions, which is where I live. We got a decent snow storm last week as well so we made the most of the snow and played in it last weekend! Above are pictures from my day in the snow and I will be sharing all of my outfit details below. For those who live in warmer areas and are looking for spring outfit ideas, I probably won’t be able to share spring looks for awhile since we are having such a late winter! Who knows though, maybe I will have to take a little vacay to somewhere warmer… stay tuned!

Let me start this post by saying that I, like many of us, do not get enough sleep. I currently work 40 hours a week in public health and blog when I get home from work. With that being said, I oftentimes look tired and I do everything I possibly can to not look tired. I have used so many products to help with puffy eyes and dark circles under my eyes, but just haven’t found a product I absolutely love, until now. Before discovering VIIcode , I was wasting money on products that didn’t work or would irritate my skin. The skin under and around your eyes is so sensitive, which can make it difficult to find products that don’t irritate that skin. I tried so many creams, masks, de-puffers, etc. and nothing seemed to work until I started using the VIIcode oxygen eye masks. The VIIcode eye masks contain essential vitamins, antioxidants, proteins, botanicals, peptides, and essential fatty acids. They basically contain everything good and nothing bad, which is what I always look for in skincare products. These gel masks are a sleep deprived woman’s dream because they hide all puffiness and dark circles around your eyes.

I have been using the VIIcode oxygen gel eye masks for three weeks now and I absolutely love them. They are so easy to apply and fall asleep with. To apply, all you have to do is remove the gel mask from the packaging, remove the protective plastic, and simply press each mask under each eye. After applying the nourishing eye masks, enjoy a night of sleep and wake up with rested looking eyes. Before application, make sure you cleanse your face to allow the gel masks to stick properly. Leave the eye masks on for no longer than 8 hours, then remove. The back of each package has simple directions to follow in case you get lost, which is so helpful. Each box contains 6 gel packets with 2 masks in each packet.

I am so happy I tried the VIIcode oxygen eye masks and will continue using these masks along with other products from VIIcode. If you are interested in learning more about their products, ingredients, and purchasing the oxygen gel masks click here.

I am so excited to share my 5 step nighttime skincare routine with all of you today! I have been using the Saranghae skincare routine for the past three weeks and have absolutely fallen in love with the products. All of the anti-aging products are paraben free, SLS free, cruelty free, and manufactured in South Korea. I have already noticed a difference after using these products full of unique ingredients and it has only been three weeks since I first started using this 5 step routine. My face feels so moisturized and rejuvinated in the morning and I haven’t had a break-out since I started using Saranghae. I have combination skin, my cheeks are very dry, while my forehead and chin are oily, and these products have truly helped my skin feel soft and healthier. Let’s jump into the 5 step process so you can get an idea of my nightly skincare routine.

Step 1- Saranghae Nourishing & Moisturizing Oil + Foam Cleanser with Truffle Extract & Gold

First off, you did read that right, this cleanser contains truffle and REAL GOLD, how cool is that? Besides smelling amazing, the cleanser has a beautiful shimmer and contains 20 botanical essential oils. I simply pump 3-4 times and apply the cleanser to my face while it is dry. I then massage the cleanser onto my skin, which dissolves my makeup and cleans my face. This hydrating and luxurious cleanser always leaves my face feeling fresh and rejuvinated.

Step 2- Saranghae Deep Radiance Essence + Serum

The serum is designed to enter the epidermis layer of your skin and deliver nutrients like antioxidants, amino acids and vitamins directly to your living cells. As stated on the Saranghae website, here are the benefits of using the serum as part of the 5 step routine:

  • Dramatically increases cellular nutrient delivery by increasing blood circulation
  • Neutralizes skin cell waste by-products
  • Prevents dry and flaky skin by controlling the balance between skin moisture and oil
  • Balances your skin’s potential hydrogen (pH) level to prevent flair ups, inflammation and break outs
  • Deeper penetration into the cellular level allows skin cells to receive vital living nutrients

This serum makes my face feel amazing after cleansing it. You can smell of the essential oils in the serum, which makes using the serum so relaxing.

Step 3- Saranghae Firm and Lift Cellular Regeneration Cream

This cream is my absolute favorite because it is so moisturizing. It is so smooth and silky, which helps moisturize and nourish my skin after a long day. I also love this cream because it is so rich, but does not feel heavy on my skin. As stated on the Saranghae website, here are the benefits of using the cream as part of the 5 step routine:

  • Reduce Free Radical Formation by 220%
  • Inhibit the formation of “the aging enzyme” Elastase by 85%
  • Stimulate collagen and elastin production in skin by 200%
  • Repairs damaged skin cell membranes
  • Reduces swelling, redness and age spots
  • Delivers resilient and supple skin by strengthening the collagen and elastin matrix
  • Proven to reduce wrinkle depth and width
  • Restores the moisture lipid barrier of the Stratum Corneum of dry cracked skin

Step 4- Saranghae Focus Renewal Eye Cream

I am always a fan of eye creams, but have had a difficult time discovering an eye cream I absolutely love. So many creams irritate the skin around my eyes because of the harsh ingredients, but this eye cream has not caused any irritation or burning for the past three weeks. I also love how smooth and light this cream makes the skin under my eyes feel. I have noticed a difference in the amount of puffiness under my eyes since I started using this cream and have seen great results. Since the skin around our eyes is so sensitive, we must take extra good care of it and treat the skin with high quality products. As stated on the Saranghae website, here are the benefits of using the eye cream as part of the 5 step routine:

  • Increases the level of ceramides and free fatty acids in the skin for maximum moisture retention
  • Dramatically increases cellular nutrient delivery by increasing blood circulation
  • Reduce dark circles, swelling and puffiness in and around the eye trough
  • Reduce fine lines and wrinkles
  • Lifts and firms sagging and loose skin surrounding the eyes
  • Incredibly smooth, soft and luxurious yet powerfully effective

Step 5- Saranghae Elemental Essence Mask

Last but definitely not least, the BEST sheet mask ever. This mask smells beyond amazing and completely tops off the entire routine. The mask is a lightweight, micro-fiber material, which feels so good on your skin. Using this mask is so relaxing and always much needed after a long day at work. I oftentimes find that using sheet masks can make my face feel greasy, but this mask makes my face feel the exact opposite. My face feels so clean and fresh after applying the mask, what’s not to love?! As stated on the Saranghae website, here are the benefits of using the mask as part of the 5 step routine:

  • Reduce & prevent fine lines & wrinkles
  • Deliver antioxidant CoQ10 & Hyaluronic Acid for repair and regeneration of skin cells
  • Eliminate redness and inflammation caused by stress & pollution

I also just went to LA this past weekend and threw the entire skincare routine in my suitcase to take with me and I am so happy I did! My skin felt amazing all weekend long and I didn’t have to worry about having dry, irritated skin while traveling, especially since my skin is extra sensitive during the winter months.

If you are trying the Saranghae 5 step anti-aging routine for the first time, please give the routine at least 30 days to repair, regenerate and protect.
