SPLURGE or SAVE: Gucci Leather Loafer Slides

I’ve recently been impressed and obsessed with the latest footwear offerings from Gucci. Let’s keep it real, Gucci rarely does wrong. They just have the ability to perfectly mix classic design with trendy elements. However, I’ve been obsessing over their leather loafer slides. Actually, there are one of the hottest shoes out there.

What makes them amazing is that they are simple and timeless. Their only setback is the almost $600 price tag. Now, the way my budget is set up, there’s currently no room to splurge on some luxurious, beautiful italian leather loafer slides. The heart wants it wants, but the wallet shuts it down.

Despite these loafer slides becoming everyday wear worthy, I knew I needed to find another, more affordable option. So, I did.

Office Friendly Sneakers

When it comes to deciding what to wear for work, I have it pretty easy. I work in a casual work environment where even the CEO and president wear “dad jeans” and souvenir t-shirts everyday. However, some of my co-workers choose to dress in traditional office clothing such as slacks, button-up shirts, and the occasional well-structured skirt and heels combo.

Although I do embrace the casual office vibes, which has included me coming in to work wearing leggings, a graphic tee du jour, and some metallic Birkenstocks (judge me. IDGAF.), sneakers are the one thing that I try not to go super casual on. The “perfect” office friendly sneakers might seem like a unicorn to some, but they do exist.

REVISITING: Coty Airspun Powder

I recently recollected on all the make-up and beauty products I’ve bought and used over my beauty blogging career (10+ years) and realized that I’ve probably used hundreds of different products, but feel like I can only recall a few. Sad, I know. However, what stirred up this pondering of my past was the recent resurgence in the beauty world of Coty’s Airspun Powder a.k. the face powder we’ve all seen in the drugstores, but never bought.

LINK-END ROUND-UP: August 19, 2016

link-end round-up august 19, 2016

Hey there and welcome to this week’s Link-End Round-Up. Currently, I’m holed up in my bedroom, because I’m experiencing an unexpected MAJOR breakout. It just happened yesterday and I was super perplexed as to what caused it. I haven’t had this magnitude of a breakout is a long time, thanks to proper skincare and nutrition. However, I think the culprit is either not thoroughly washing my face at night, because of super long workdays OR these natural caffeine pills I’ve been taking for the past couple of days. Those are the only 2 things that I can think of that I recently did that could cause this breakout.

Yesterday, I went to Ulta to pick up a bottle of Mario Badescu Buffering Lotion, which is the best spot treatment EVER for large and cystic acne, which is what popped up on my face. I applied it last night and I woke up this morning to the majority of the outbreak being clear. I promise you, the Buffering Lotion and the Drying Lotion (for whiteheads) have never let me down.

I plan to go make-up free all weekend and relax. Hopefully, this will calm down my skin and it will clear up in time for the beginning of another week. In the meantime, I hope everyone has a good weekend and stop by next week. Oh, and keep reading to enjoy the reads that I caught my attention this week. Deuces!
