Doll Face

As a kid I LOVED dolls. I had a ton of barbies and a ridiculous amount of clothing for them. But it wasn't just barbies, I love any type of doll. I even had an extensive porcelain doll collection that my grandmother created (don't hate, it was the 80s and it was a thing). I also had a few vintage dolls from when my mom was a kid. 

Words cannot describe how much I love this "little kiddle" brooch. 

And Dawn and Angie dolls had excellent 70s outfits 



So it was no surprise when few months ago I saw the most adorable doll necklace on the Kate Spade website and was drawn to it. Read about it here:

And white it's beautiful I have to say oh no to the over $400 price tag. So, I headed to etsy to see if I could find a similar but more affordable product. And although there were many similar necklaces I found myself drawn to the style of a particular shop out of Spain. For months I kept the shop as my favorites, my problem was I just couldn't decide - they are all so cute! Finally I decided I had wanted one long enough and decided just to pick one and make a purchase. And last weekend it was finally here! 

I love when sellers wrap things, it's a little self gift after all. 


Here's the doll I selected: 


Wearing the necklace to give an idea of size. 


It's hard to show in a pic but this is very well made and the detailing is quite nice. While I love my necklace I have doubts already that I played it safe and maybe I should have gotten a "louder" doll.

Do you see now how I had so much trouble? In addition to necklaces there are brooches too and I have a feeling eventually I will get one of those too. 

Here's the shop to check out all the beautiful designs. 


Sadly, the little kiddles, Dawn and Angie got lost over the years and I couldn't find them at my Mom's house. Eventually I'd like to buy replacements off eBay to show my future kids but right now I just can't justify the purchase, plus I don't trust myself not to loose them again.

Vi Peel

2018 Update: Hello Internet! Welcome to my most popular blog post - I presume you're here because you're considering getting a facial peel. Please keep in mind this is an old post and my photo quality is not great. Please feel free to read and enjoy but I do want to let you know that as the years have passed I have taken a more proactive approach with my skin care and I do not get frequent peels. If you'd like to see my modern approach to skincare check out some of my other beauty posts and I'd love for you to connect with me on Instagram to keep up with my latest and greatest recommendations.

Hello! So I got my first Vi Peel which I was super excited about. Since the Botox post was popular I figure y'all would like this too. Besides, it's well established I'm beyond any sense of privacy or shame here.
I got my first peel years ago - a mild Glycolic peel added onto my fac…

Zyto Scan Review

Recently I received my first Zyto scan. And I know most of you reading this are thinking, what the heck is a Zyto scan??? 
There's a graphic below but basically a Zyto scan is a device to read the bio-markers of the body (there are 76) and provides feedback on "out of range" markers and recommends products as a result. The Zyto scan does not diagnose or treat medical conditions, that's what doctors are for y'all. Because I received my scan at a Young Living class, my results were for Young Living products. 
The scan is painless and easy, one simply rests their hand on the cradle like so and watches a quick video on the process: 
This is me getting my scan 
A diagram of how it works 
After a few minutes received my results! Of 76 bio-markers 19 were out of balance, which isn't bad. I've really been making a push to focus on my health so I was pretty pleased with the results. 
Here's my report: 

I really love how in addition to recommendations the report discu…

Ipsy Glam Bag April 2017

OMG, Ipsy finally has a cute bag for the month!
Seriously, this month's coral ticket design bag is super cute and would make a fun little clutch for a night out at a festival or fair.
The items I received this month weren't terrible either. Here's what's inside my bag and my thoughts on each product:
OFRA Cosmetics Peach Blush $12 Everything I've received from this company in my Ipsy bad is a full-sized product (nice)! However they need to be in a refillable palette so that may not be your thing but I just found mine recently so this offends me less. This is overall a nice shade so I'll add it to my palette.
Hanalei Aloe Soothing Gel $30 This is a little more lightweight than the aloe gel you can get in a giant bottle at CVS but I'm skeptical yet if that makes it worth $30 for a jar. We're going to the beach in May so the timing is good and I'm sure I'll use the whole sample.
No Poreblem Primer $18 This is a nice, lightweight primer and has a …

Thank you, Thank you very much

Every time I hear that sending thank you notes today will set one apart I'm a little shocked, I know plenty of people who send thank you notes. But I also probably know a few who do not and just don't want to admit it. If you're ever in doubt about when to send a thank you note or need some ideas to get you in the habit than fear not, I am here to offer you some advise. Most of this I feel is common (apparently semi common) knowledge I've gathered over the years but I'll also offer you some special practices I have developed. I've also got some pictures of the type of card that might be appropriate. All examples are available at Tiny Prints. Job Interviews Seriously, it really shocks me that people don't do this. If you want the job, send a thank you note. I usually keep some in my car and will write it and take to the post office as soon as the interview is over. In fact, if you know the decision is going to be made the next day write it in the parking l…

Birthday Discounts

Woohoo! It's my birthday week y'all! Birthdays are always a great time for brands to make customers special and each year I'm able to take advantage of some pretty good discounts in July so I thought I would share the love and talk about some of my favorite discounts and how to get them.

My absolute favorite discount is from Kendra Scott! During your birthday month you can receive one regular item at 50% off. It's your first time you'll have to show your id in store and sign up for their email list but then once they have you on file you can just go into the store and say that you would like to apply your birthday discount to your purchase and give your email address. This year I purchased the Tatiana Long Pendant Necklace which usually sells for $175. This necklace takes the look of the popular Rayne necklace and really amps it up.  
If jewelry is your thing you can also get a $10 credit from Charming Charlie - this discount is sent to Charm Rewards members at the…
