Bernardo Coat

My Go-To Moisturizers

It has been beyond cold here!  And I know we aren’t the only place feeling the pain of this weather lately but it makes it so hard to leave the house haha.  On top of that, Ethan and I both have a bad cold so the fact that we even ventured out on Saturday for coffee was a plus. (We spent the rest of the day inside and miserable haha.)  I clearly should have worn my Uggs because it actually hurt to have any bare skin out.  Hence, why a couple of our pics were taken inside the Daily Roastery and our street shots were snapped in a total of 30 seconds, maybe.  However, when I went to link my sneaks for you all in this post, I noticed that they are on sale now.  So, yay for you all–I am glad I decided to throw them on afterall! [runs tts, wearing a 7.5]

Since it has been so frigid, moisturizers are 10x more important.  You all know how annoying dry skin can be and I feel like I have been on the search for some good products for YEARS now (I am super, super picky and get grossed out easily by textures, containers, etc).  I recently found a few that I love so I wanted to be sure to share with you all.  Give these a try if you’re on the hunt!

in the SHOWER

Jergens Wet Skin Moisturizer with Argan Oil

I saw Jacey from Damsel in Dior post this product on her IG story a while back and decided to give it a try when I was browsing at the drug store one day.  I have to tell you, I was really skeptical.  But–the results made me a true fan.  I think it makes my skin so much softer throughout the day.  I found myself  thinking oh my skin is softer than normal and then I realized it was on days when I used this product.  It’s crazy how it locks in the moisture.

great for EVERYTHING

Ultra Repair Cream Intense Hydration

First Aid Beauty sent me some products a while back to try and this was the first one I gave a go.  I fell in LOVE.  I have since repurchased it several times with zero regrets.  The texture is silky so it does not irk me.  Bonus! And the best part about this is that you can use it all over.  I like for your body if you are feeling really dry and I like it for the face as a night time moisturizer.  I use Retin-A a couple nights a week and when I do I mix it with this before I put it on.  It’s a dream product.

on your LIPS

Aveda Lip Saver

I go to Simply Blue Salon here in Lexingon and my hair stylist, Rosa suggested this Aveda product.  Since I am always looking for something great to put on my lips, I gave it a try.  I am liking it to wear to bed right now.  Since Ethan likes to have the fan on, I will get chapped lips if I don’t put something on.  && this seems to be helping!

for the FACE

Ultra Repair Face Moisturizer

I looked for a new daily moisturizer for my face for sooooo long.  When I was at Sephora grabbing some of my other FAB product refills I decided to give this one a try too.  LOVE!  Thank gosh I found this one.  It is perfect for me to apply after washing my face in the mornings and before I apply my make up.


&& I can’t leave you all without discussing this fab coat.  I just got it in the mail on Friday.  I have a long black down coat that is packable from Bernardo that I truly adore.  I bought it last Winter and it has come in SO handy.  When the Bernardo team reached out and offered me one of their new styles I knew I wanted to jump on it.  I have fallen hard for this brand–the quality is 100% and I think the styles are spot on for casual coats.  I love how this one is a shorter style and has silver hardware on it.  It will for sure be on repeat!  [runs tts, wearing an xs]

Lastly, but certainly not least.. let’s take a second to chat about this new bag that I have been RAVING about in IG.  How great is the gunmetal hardware mixed with the neutral leather?  It’s a great size, has both an outside and inside pocket and is currently on sale! && this is just a little random side note, but the turn knobs are attached–if you rotate one to open the bag the other one automatically follows suit too so you don’t have to take the time to do both before grabbing your wallet or chapstick out.  Genius, right?  You can find a couple other colors available here too.

I hope you all are staying warm and healthy this weekend!  I, for one, am keeping my fingers crossed that I recover enough to have a glass of wine soon! Priorities, right??

The Only Winter Coat You Need

Bernardo Coat [on MAJOR sale!] Also similar here & here || Stem Hoodie [the BEST!!!] || Topshop Jeans [size up, wearing 26×30] || Steve Madden Velvet Sneaks [size up 1/2] || Topshop Beanie || Givenchy Handbag [less expensive dupe here] || Fur Pom Pom || Quay Sunglasses || Thumb Ring || Lip Glide, color: Stripped || Nail Color

I am serious when I say this is the only Winter coat that you need.  I have LIVED in it this Winter and for the life of me I can’t understand why I didn’t have a long puffy coat until now.  They are SO warm.  You can see all the reasons why I love this specific one here but I will add one thing..  Since I’ve been wearing this coat bunches and bunches I have thrown it over lots of different things.  While the sleeves look really fitted, they are amazingly stretchy.  I am always surprised at how I can put a really thick sweater underneath and still feel like I can move my arms around just fine.  You could also try this one.  It’s similar and by the same brand.  && since sizing is low–I also loooooove this one! [wearing an xs]

Also worth mentioning–this grey top!  I know you can’t see a ton of detail on it from these pics (see my IG here & here for a better view) but it is just so darn soft.  I have bought several things in this material this year [see FAVE grey pants here] and I am hooked.  [wearing a medium, I sized up two sizes from my normal per the reviews]

Sooooo, it was 7 degrees when we took these pictures.  7!  I loaded up the car with several outfits and as soon as we took these on the way into the coffee shop I knew that was all we were going to get accomplished for the day.  It was just too darn cold!  && I will admit that these sneaks were not a great choice, haha.  BUT I love the velvet so I went for it anyways!  ps, they also come in black & navy.  I think they run small.  I got my regular size (7 1/2) but I wish I had sized up to an 8 honestly.

Hope your week is moving right along!  January is always a hard month to get through.. Is anyone planning a warm weather getaway?!
