Recent Hits and Misses

Ice Roller- I feel like I've talked about this on Instagram about a 100 times but that's because I LOVE it. I really do notice a difference when I use it. My face is less puffy, more awake, and when I apply makeup, it just goes on smoother.

J.Crew Point Sur Button-front Square neck top- I lusted over this top for months and when I saw it was on sale, I snatched it up. It's super cute, right on trend, yet a great basic you could wear with shorts or dress it up with jeans and heels. The reviews said to size down so I got a small, I'm usually a small/medium, and it fits great.

Soludos Cadiz Sandal- I was pleasantly surprised how comfortable these shoes are. You never know with a flatform shoe but the bed of this is a very soft cushion. You forget you're even wearing them. The neutral color goes with everything too, which is a big plus! I got my normal size. If you wear a size 8-9, they're on sale here for only $77!

Hanes Men's Long Sleeve Cool Dri T-Shirt UPF 50+ - This is a guy's shirt but thought I would mention it in case your husband/boyfriend/son/brother/dad etc. is looking for a sun protective shirt. Theo bought this two pack and has been very happy with them. He says they're breathable and comfortable and so far he hasn't gotten burnt, so that's a win! They're an awesome price too. Now, if only I could find a child's sun protective shirt in a two pack at this price!

Tarte Dry Shampoo - I got this when Tarte had their big sale where you get 7 items for $68 (I think that's what it was!). I go through dry shampoo almost weekly so I'll always take a new bottle. When I first sprayed it didn't have a white cast to it like most dry shampoos, so I honestly didn't think it was going to be that great. That whiteness that comes out is usually what soaks up all the oils, then you brush it out and it looks fine. So I sprayed this dry shampoo all throughout the parts of my hair that get greasy, waited a few minutes, then brushed it out. I was pleasantly surprised of how clean my hair felt. It looked fresh and didn't feel stiff, like I had product in it. This one would work great for dark hair too since it doesn't leave a whiteness in your hair.


Tuckernuck White Royal Shirt Dress- Lately, all my purchases from Tuckernuck have been sent back. I've had the worst luck! I love their clothes but when I receive them, I'm just disappointed. Maybe it's because I wore a white cotton dress for years while in nursing school but that's all I could think about when I tried this dress on. Just needed a stethoscope and I'd be ready for clinicals. It had a very boxy fit too, which I'm usually fine with, but I just didn't like the overall look of the dress.

English Factory Smocked Poplin Dress- I probably would have liked this dress more if I had sized down but it was so much fabric, it made my hips look huge. It was not flattering at all so it got sent back!

Emerson Fry Short Caftan- I thought this was going to be the perfect throw on, summer dress, but instead it was a big piece of overpriced fabric. There was nothing flattering about this dress at all. I know a lot of bloggers are loving the long Emerson Fry Caftans so I thought about trying one of those, maybe. I will say, this would be perfect if you were pregnant or postpartum since it's a big sack.
