this & that

Many won't believe what I thrifted these vint Ray-Ban's for @ the Salvation Army and I may even be a bit ashamed to say.... ($5) One of the reasons I will always love this tiny, old fashioned town!

Some great looks from this month's Nylon mag


I'm always interested to see what people's make-up and skincare routine is, here is mine.
  • Evian facial spray for misting after I finish my make-up. Also have a smaller size in my purse at all times.
  • Biore Skin Preservation micro-scrub (for once a week exfoliation)
  • Ole Henriksen African Tea face and eye cream @ night
  • Philosophy moisturizer (daily in the winter)
  • Aveeno Clear Complexion line of cream cleanser, facial cleansing pads, and moisturizer (year round for my super break-out prone face..discovered the wonders of this line's use of soy in college and haven't found anything like it since)
More recently purchased treasures in the form of a boy's Ralph Lauren blazer that fits like an absolute dream (thrifted), a vintage Christian Dior silk shirt (thrifted), rad vintage belt (thrifted), Dooney & Burke leopard print wallet (tjmaxx).

Have a great rest of the week!

I love you. You are *such* a gem. What do you think of these Ray Bans for me: http://www.revolveclothing.com/DisplayProduct.jsp?product=RAYB-WA1&c=Ray-Ban

I think I would prefer them in black but summer is just around the corner and I guess it wouldn't hurt for me to break out of my comfort zone...

Also, I love Aveeno products! Unfortunately, I am not as dedicated in the skin care realm and just abuse the crap out of my skin. I'm pretty fortunate because for as much as I abuse it, it has held up quite well.

simplychic said...

great finds!

i've recently started using philosphy hope in a jar and so far so good. for my scrub i use yes to carrots and i use a burt's bees moisturizing cleansing gel. i have such issues with my skin in the winter (sigh).

Tip said...

I know right@ damsels..the sales lady thought i was a total nut the way i freaked!!

@ simply chic- yes i have always wanted to try yes to carrots it seems really good and i most def agree with that being a downfall of winter..and for me my hair really sucks and gets dry and breaks so i have to be really careful..i had to chop off a good inch a month ago :(sigh
