Beauty: Revision Skincare


I received an invitation from Dallas-based Revision Skincare to attend an exclusive blogger event at The Dallas Center for Dermatology and Aesthetics a few weeks ago and I couldn't be happier I decided to go last week! Greeted by bubbly and Nick & Sam's Grill bites, the vibe was relaxed and you could tell we were about to engage in a fantastic skincare discussion which I so desperately needed. I will shamelessly admit that the most I do for my skincare routine is a daily cleanser and moisturizer morning and night. No great serums, eye creams or even toners.

After learning from dermatologists Dr. Lori Stetler and Dr. Kristel Polder, the number one takeaway was how IMPORTANT sunscreen is for our skins (of all types and ages)!! The short and long-term effects of sun damage to your skin is gruesome when you see and read research on it. This goes for ALL skin types, ages, genders, ethnicities, etc.! I've got Hunter using sunscreen everyday now too!!! Revision Skincare's Intellishade has a fantastic SPF 45 and leaves your skin feeling incredible. Some of the other bloggers in attendance have said they may even be ready to rid themselves of daily foundation (I could never lol)! The Intellishade comes in 'matte' or 'original', it just depends on what skin-type you have or your preference! Adding one more product into your daily routine is so worth the extra 30 seconds it takes to put it on, especially if that product is the award winning Intellishade. Not only are you getting SPF 45 + antioxidants, you're getting a 4-in-1 anti-aging tinted moisturizer! Other benefits include pore minimizing, skin evening and the product can last you about 2-3 months! I'm definitely seeing a difference in the smoothness of my skin. I hoping with more and longer use my pores will get even smaller!!

I have yet to try out the cleanser and hydrating serum but I plan to start using them this weekend and I can't wait!! Sampling the hydrating serum at the event got me SUPER excited to use it instead of my current moisturizer. It's super light and helps both oily and dry skin! I'm super oily unfortunately. :(

If you're interested in Revision Skincare in the least bit, be sure to check them out in different magazine articles here! And if you just want to try out one product and see how you like it, I'd absolutely suggest the Intellishade or Hydrating Serum!! Shop their products here or make an appointment to see Dr. Stetler or Dr. Polder here in Dallas! Revision Skincare products are only sold online at their website or through medical offices!

Happy skincare shopping, y'all! :)

HOME TOUR: LIVING ROOM

Click for direct links to the following:

I love to decorate. Whether I am decorating my home or work office, I have to spruce up my spaces with some decor or I'll go insane! If you love how your space is decorated, you'll enjoy being in that environment so much more!

I am finally getting around to revealing Part 1 of my Home Tour! As you can see, my interstior style is modern glam with an eclectic flare. I love to mix metals, patterns and textures to give my spaces more dimension. Unfortunately, I haven't gotten to hanging much on the walls in my living room but with all of the small quirky items I have in this space, wall decor may be a bit much.

I have been adding and adding to my apartment since we moved in. Every week I'd have something added or moved around...hence why my Home Tour post has been so delayed! Funny thing is my lease is up at the end of July and I plan on moving to another place. I'm finally revealing my home and it won't even be the same place by the end of summer, hehe!

I recently read an article about how the color gray is taking over people's homes and Pinterest boards. You can read it here. I love, love, love the color grey especially to decorate with. I don't like how black can make a room feel pretty dark, even if it's well lit. Grey and white furniture and decor looks gorgeous especially with lots of natural light and that's what draws me to those colors so much! This combo keeps it very neutral so you can add in your colorful decor such as throw pillows, paintings or flowers!

Throughout my apartment I have incorporated a handful of copper items because I'm so obsessed lately. It's such a gorgeous metal and it really pops in a white and grey room. This is becoming a pretty big trend lately in home decor. My dream home will have copper fixtures, white marble counter-tops and grey cabinets throughout the house. I. Can't. Wait. :)

The last thing I wanted to touch on was how much I love my babies aka my plants! The best part about them is they are so low maintenance and for a busy girl like myself, they're so easy. My succulents and cacti usually only need a spritz every one to two weeks and even if I forget, they're very easy to revive! Every time a new leaf or bud begins sprouting, I get so excited!! I'm obsessed with my babies!

Thanks for letting me share my favorite room with y'all!! Stay tuned for my next Home Tour post about my gallery wall!

Happy decorating, babes!!!!

Sneakers: Nike Air Max Thea | Sunglasses: Versace Limited Edition, Polarized | Top: TjMaxx | Harem pants: H&M | Bag: Rebecca Minkoff | Statement necklace: BaubleBar (sold out) | Watch: Kate Spade NY

An update on my life... Today ends my first week at my new job! I honestly couldn't be more ecstatic about my new company and all of the opportunities I will be exposed to with this position. For instance, before I even started on Monday, the company had already scheduled me for a week in Tokyo, Madrid and Warsaw this year!!!! I get the chance to travel the world doing what I love with an amazing company. All of my hard work to get to where I am in my career has paid off and I can't wait to share all of my adventures with you guys! Yay!! And to top off what a great work week it's been, I'm headed to Little Rock, Arkansas tomorrow to watch Paul McCartney in concert thanks to my boyfriend's mom! I. Can't. Wait!

On to this fun look! Have you guys heard of the trending athleisure style? It's basically glamming up the sporty look with designer handbags, accessories and sportswear. Style an edgy look or a simple dress and pair it with sneakers instead of flats or sandals! And now you're looking FABLETIC! I've become pretty fond of this look lately because it's so easy. I can look chic and casual while feeling super comfy and relaxed. I tend to go shopping, run errands or grab a quick lunch with friends in the athleisure look! These sneakers plus my amazing Harem pants and flowy halter top, I'm incredibly comfortable from head to toe all day long. Switch to heels and I'm ready for a night out!

These Nike Air Max Thea's are literally everything y'all. I've been on a hunt for black tennies for some time now and boy did I get lucky. These babies were staring at me at the Nike Outlet store for 40% off...WUT?! Be sure to check out your local Nike Outlet before you splurge on your pair for full price!!

I just got these Limited Edition Versace Sunglasses a few weekends ago and I couldn't be more pleased with them. They are polarized and a dark lens just how I like it and it's seriously the best pair I own right now! The price was a bit steep, but they were definitely worth it. Check out their new line and let me know which ones you like!

Happy weekend, everyone!
