Welcome to the month of March! Part of the reason I have had a disconnect from my blog is in part due to the weather and partly due to a busy schedule. Fortunately, the weather is quickly warming up and it's amazing how much sunlight we gain every single day! I am working on a collaboration and I can't wait to share it with you once it materializes :)

Last weekend, I visited Washington D.C and was able to squeeze in this shot during my <48 hour stay. Boy was it cold and windy in D.C! I was glad I was armed with my latest closet addition, a vintage lynx fur jacket!! Real fur costs an arm and a leg (alternatives) so I was crazy excited when this was gifted to me. I apologize in advance but this fur is going to be on repeat until it's too warm to wear it. For the rest of my look, I chose an H&M suit (similar) paired with two marsala pieces - my Zara messenger purse (similar), and an Ava & Aiden calf hair pumps (similar). Theme? Marching into March with a clean work style.

For my makeup I used my Laura Mercier secret finish mattifying for my t-zone followed by same brand tinted moisturizer (see a review of these products on my YouTube channel). For my lips, I went with this 3-in-1 Paula Dorf perfect color in ecstasy lipstick. I am on a constant quest to finding great skin care products so I have been using this Anavita Moisturizing Anti-Wrinkle Cream*** on my creases for the past two weeks. You know my struggles with oily skin. I love that this product gives me just enough moisture for my skin. Though thick, it feels lightweight. It even gets better! The cream is paraben free, sulfate free, and phthalate free. I am yet to notice any difference in wrinkles/fine lines but it typically takes several weeks to see a visible difference so I plan on giving this cream 1 - 2 months before I come to a verdict. Anavita Skin Care is so confident in their product that they are promising a 100% satisfaction guarantee and offering $5 off your order with code FEBBAC28. Enter below to win a free bottle of Anavita moisturizing anti-wrinkle cream (U.S., Puerto Rico and U.S. territories only).

I post more often on Instagram, Twitter, and Facebook than I do on my blog. I will be publishing a new video every Wednesday on YouTube (newest video coming this Wednesday) so please follow along and let me know what you would like to see in future posts or videos. As always, thank you so much for stopping by and I'll be in touch with you soon.
