August is right around the corner, and it's hard to believe that summer is almost over. I love this outfit for all of the end of summer activities you might have left or a casual date night enjoying a drink on a patio somewhere nice! I think this dress will transition well into fall paired with some booties and a jean jacket.
I received this box of IsaDora Cosmetics through a BzzAgent campaign for testing purposes. I was not financially compensated & all opinions are my own.
IsaDora Cosmetics is a Swedish brand that was started in the 80s that is Fragrance Free & Clinically Tested. In the states, it is sold exclusively at Walgreen's. They claimed that it was formulated due to the lack of colors, quality, low price point and packaging found in other brands on the market at the time.
I'm not quite sure how the brand has transitioned throughout the years, if at all. I personally found the packaging and performance of the products to be subpar to other drugstore products available today, especially for the price! For example, the Face Sculptor retails for $25 and the clear circular insert of the packaging has already come loose.
I did enjoy using the foundation and did not experience any weird patchy areas as it wore through the day and I liked that it had a pump on it. While the liquid liner was a bear to apply due to the large and inflexible applicator, it did last the whole day and took some effort to remove. And finally, the mascara has an expandable wand to allow more control during application and although it is not a waterproof formula, it really held the curl in my stick straight stubborn lashes.
Have you ever tried any products from this brand?

One of my favorite things to wear is a good graphic t-shirt. The best ones are super soft and a little loose-fitting. I love that you can share your personality through wearing graphic t-shirts and represent your favorite band, power phrase or brand. Today I have linked six band tees that I found on Amazon Prime. Which one is your fave?

Pixi Beauty recently gifted me 5 products from their Vitamin-C Collection. I have really been enjoying using the Juice Cleanser in the morning for a quick cleanse before applying my SPF moisturizer and eye cream. It is similar to a micellar water and very refreshing. I have also been using the Vitamin-C Lotion at night since I ran out of my usual night cream and it feels really nice on the skin. I am still loyal to my Pixi Glowtonic Toner, but I am looking forward to incorporating the Vitamin-C Toner once it runs out.

With the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale coming up soon, I thought I would feature two outfit ideas featuring items from their website. The first outfit is perfect for running around during the day to go to brunch with your girlfriends, a BBQ with your family or to see a summer blockbuster with your sweetie.
The second outfit is great for a summer evening when the temperature may drop after the sun goes down, or if you plan to frequent a restaurant that is always frigid. If it's sweltering 24/7 where you live, just tie the denim jacket around your waist for a casual but put together outfit.

I don't know about you, but anytime I pack 25 outfits to wear on my beach vacation, I end up only wearing a swimsuit and a cover up for 95% of the trip. Many resorts will insist that men wear a full outfit to any of the restaurants, but women can get away with a nice coverup, especially during the day. I swear, it's the only time women can feel like they have fewer rules (and I love it).
I think the swimsuit cover ups that I have selected below would be great for any pool party or vacation you have planned this summer. The last thing I want to do is sit around in my bikini and stuff my face poolside with my food baby on full display. These coverups will make you feel more confident and also comfy at whatever event you find yourself at that involves water.

This past Friday I attended a Summer Skin & Style Event hosted by All For You Medspa and Remy + Rose Boutique in St. Louis, MO. They had food catered, adult capri suns, a fashion show, live demonstrations of cosmetic injectables and a rep present to answer questions and customize skincare.
I am a brand ambassador for Remy + Rose Boutique, so you have probably seen me mention them in the past if you follow any of my social media accounts. I also wrote a blog post and did a try-on haul in this post here.
They have a combination of super cute basics, trendy items, bralettes, jewelry, shoes and accessories. When I saw this "What Would Dolly Do?" Graphic T-Shirt it was love at first sight. I also decided to try on these elastic high-waisted button up denim shorts and they fit like a DREAM! Super roomy and comfortable and not at all the type of short you have to constantly pull down. Add to CART! I also scored that cute dress draped across the chair in the second picture. I'll be doing another try-on haul soon so stayed tuned!
This gray trendy hat was out of my comfort zone, but I ended up purchasing that as well. Cue me going to Pinterest to see how all the young, cool girls style it. If you know me at all, you know I looove hiding underneath a baseball cap, because hello--you don't have to style your hair. So I'm hoping this will be my fancier and less frumpy option.
They also had a fashion show with models in 4 different age ranges to demonstrate how the clothing from Remy + Rose Boutique can be styled for each person. Skincare and treatment recommendations were also made, which I thought was a really smart idea!
All For You MedSpa has an amazing Nurse Injector named Julie and she did live demonstrations of both Botox and Juvederm Ultra. I originally filmed this in portrait mode for Instagram Stories, but decided to edit it the best I could to fit into YouTube so that more people could watch and share it. It is SO important to do your research when choosing to get any kind of cosmetic injectables, and as you can see, Julie knows her stuff. She is also very detail-oriented and conservative in her treatments so that you won't walk out looking like a cartoon.
If you live in the St. Louis area, or plan to be passing through I highly recommend you check out both the MedSpa & Boutique! They also facial treatments such as dermaplaning and hydrafacials and they made it to the A-List for St. Louis! Remy + Rose Boutique is located inside of All For You MedSpa and is located at:
6324 Telegraph Rd,
St. Louis, MO 63129
or give them a call: (314) 293-7546
If you are not local and would like to check out the boutique or just prefer online shopping, you can purchase many of their items on their website:
And my followers can receive 15% off when they use the code FANCY15 at checkout!
What spa treatment is on your wishlist? I am dying to try the hydrafacial!
Drinking plenty of water is paramount to keep every system in your body working at optimum levels. It also makes your skin look more youthful and plump as an added bonus. When I find myself not getting all of my water intake, I notice it in my skin, lips and energy levels. Keeping a cute tumbler or water bottle nearby helps motivate me to drink more water. Here are some cute options you can check out to up your H2O game. Just click on each item to go to the retailer's website.
BUT HOW MUCH WATER AM I SUPPOSED TO DRINK?! At minimum, you should drink about half your weight in ounces each day, and I know for some people they find it difficult to even accomplish that. Ideally, you should drink about 2/3 of your weight. For someone who is 125 lbs, they should be consuming about 84 oz each day.
If you are someone who does not enjoy the taste of water, try adding fruit. I wrote a blog a few years ago about the benefits of drinking lemon water. You can check it out here: www.xofancy.com/blog/benefits-of-drinking-lemon-water
I prefer my water filtered, so I use this Brita Ultramax 18 cup pitcher that I keep in my fridge and fill up every few days. You can get your own on Amazon Prime:
