A Special Dress for a Special Day

I love shopping for dresses. But when one of your best friends, since birth, is getting married you need something really special! The wedding was in New Orleans and was truly one of the prettiest, most fun weddings I've ever been to! Not to mention seeing a best friend get married gives me all the feels. I know I have a great time when I don't remember to take many pictures! It's bad for a blog post but a great night of memories.

Finding a dress for a March wedding can sometimes be difficult. Depending on the location it may feel like spring or winter. And even if the weather is Spring like, I'm not quite ready for all out pastels! I've always been a fan of Self Portrait and their dresses have are especially stunning. But I've never had a reason to purchase one until now. This green lace midi dress was something I couldn't turn down. It may be my favorite dress I've ever owned. The combination of the cinched in waist and tiers of lace, create a hourglass figure. Not to mention the green color is so rich and gorgeous! I love that this color will work for any season. Self portrait dresses are a bit of a splurge, but their attention to detail make them worth the price tag. 

The dress truly speaks for itself and I already know of a few more events I can't wait to wear this dress to!

Good to the Last Drop: Vitamin C Serum

I like to use a beauty/skincare product for a little while before I review it! Over the last year or so I've read several articles talking about Vitamin C serums and their benefits. At the same time my facialist (shout out to Patsy at 3 Graces Spa) told me that I should add one to my skin care routine.

Vitamin C has the following benefits

  • Promotes collagen production. Collagen is what gives your skin firmness and elasticity.
  • Helps reduce signs of aging by repairing damage done by free radicals and the sun. 
  • Even outs and brightens skin tone.
After some research I decided to try out Beauty Counter's No. 1 Brightening Facial Oil, I had been researching the Brand Beauty Counter and was eager to try one of their products. This brand has a strict code on what types of ingredients they use in their products. Check out here to see how!

Their No. 1 Brightening Facial Oil also has ingredients to add a punch of moisture. It has become my absolute favorite beauty product and I use it at least once a day. It has been a came changer for my skin and helped my skin avoid the winter blues.
On days when I'm wearing minimal or no makeup I love to put on the serum to give my skin a healthy glow! It also mixes well with any moisturizer or mix it with any liquid foundation to get a light coverage look!
