GIRL AND THE CITY

Hey Readers!
So, I've been spending way more time than I care to admit watching Sex and the City. I wont lie, I'm now 3 seasons deep and can't get enough! Also, I think my obsession for shoes couldn't be more in line with that of Carrie Bradshaw. Not to mention, I am kind of obsessed with her life. Who wouldn't want an apartment in New York, a collection of shoes to rival anyone's, a Mr. Big and a job as a columnist. I think Carrie is living my future life..at least I hope (without the relationship complications with Mr. Big, I don't need that!).

This post is inspired by the city life and feeling glamorous in it. Not being scared to walk around in your best 6-inch heels in broad daylight on a Sunday and feeling totally fabulous doing so. 
Also, try adding a touch of sexiness to your low-cut top by opting for a cute caged bra. It will blend in to your top and voila, you're good to go!

So get on your Sunday best and channel Carrie Bradshaw in your own spin-off, Girl and the City.

5 SKINCARE PRODUCTS I LOVE

Hey Readers!
When it comes to skincare, I am 100% dedicated to make my skin look and feel great. Having oily skin is a challenge, especially finding products that work to keep breakouts and blemishes away. I'm always on the lookout for something new. Fortunately, the products I've mentioned below won't 
break the bank and are easily accessible. If you have oily skin like me, hopefully you will either agree or be inspired to try out one of these products for yourself!


St. Ives Blackhead Clearing Green Tea Scrub
I swear by this product and always will. I haven't found anything that makes my skin so smooth, clear and calm. I have a bit of redness and this helps decrease it while also clearing blackheads at the same time. I love using this at night when I have a shower. It deeply exfoliates to get rid of dirt and oil from pores. It contains 100% natural green tea and olive extracts. Although this product is at a moderate exfoliation rate, it doesn't hurt or feel unpleasant. Definitely recommend!


Clearasil Ultra Rapid Action Gel Wash
This product helps fight breakouts fast and effectively. I love using it in the morning as it refreshes my skin and is perfect to use before I use any makeup. I'm impressed by this product and it makes my skin look and feel great after use. I highly recommend adding it to your skin care routine, especially for my fellow oily skin bearers. It keeps working throughout the day to show signs of visibly clearer skin within 12 hours!


Dr LeWinn's Purifying Toner
This toner is alcohol-free and aloe-based which makes is super refreshing and light on the face. It works well for combination skin as it helps to minimise pores and nasty excess oils. Not only that, but it also helps to remove make up - which is a massive plus! The scent is bearable and is great to use both morning and night. There's nothing better than having a face that feels hydrated and refreshed.


 Clearasil Ultra Rapid Action Pimple Cream
You know when you have a full day to prepare for an event or have an afternoon spare before that date you're going on? But to your horror you find a very prominent spot on your face that is NOT supposed to be there. "How can this be happening?!" - we've all been there. If for some reason you haven't, lucky you! This pimple cream is perfect for getting rid of breakouts FAST. Within 4 hours, this cream visibly reduces pimple size and redness. For extra deep cleansing, I recommend using this product. It gets deep into the pores to have your skin looking #flawless and #fabulous in a matter of hours!


La Roche-Posay Effaclar Duo
If I had to take a product to the grave, I'd choose this one. I use this before bed EVERY NIGHT. Looking at this tube straight up, most of it is in French and it has very little description in English, but oh my..on the face it speaks every language. This is my top breakout-fighting cream. When I don't need immediate action to resolve spots, I use this to reduce them overnight. This also keeps any breakouts away from my skin and I can notice a difference if I don't use it (which is barely ever). It totally wipes all imperfections and is a miracle worker!


All of these products can be purchased at Priceline.
