Summer Basics

imageThere’s nothing better for summer than jean shorts and a tee. It’s the perfect combo to look cute and stay cool. These shorts are my absolute favorite because I love the distressed detail and rolled cuffs. This lace trim trench coat is so perfect for layering in warmer weather since it’s so lightweight and the sleeves can be rolled up and buttoned for a short sleeve look or full length if it gets a little cooler at night.

Black, White, & Pink

imageI love wearing neutral colors and adding a pop of color. It’s a fun way to play with color without over doing it. Especially with a color like neon pink, it’s hard to wear it with other colors since it’s such a vibrant hue.

Spring Sweater

imageIt’s cold and windy today so I still have my sweaters out. This one is perfect for spring weather because it’s a thick warm sweater, but it has shorter sleeves so you don’t get too hot. I’ve had this one for years but it always comes out in new colors.

Crochet Lace Dress and Pop of Pink

imageToday I’m sharing what I wore for my anniversary date night this past weekend. My husband and I have been together for 12 years (married for 5)!  Whenever I need a special dress my go to is bebe. I always love their dresses and this cocheted lace one stole my heart! I love the open back and high neckline. I really don’t like wearing my hair up but I just had to to show off the back of the dress. It was so perfect paired with some pretty hot pink shoes!

White Jumpsuit

imageI'm really loving the jumpsuit trend at the moment. It's a great alternative to a dress but just as easy since it's one piece and you're ready to go.  I love how fresh and chic white looks for spring and summer, but a color would be super fun too!

Pink Satin Bomber

imageI really love the bomber jacket trend and I absolutely fell in love with this pink one in this pretty satin material. The silvery blush color looks so pretty paired with gray, another of my favorite colors to wear.  I’ve been seeing so many satin bombers lately and I think this lightweight one is perfect for spring.

Cutout Active Wear

IMG_7459Cutouts have been a fun trend for a while and I especially love them in active wear.  I found these cute pieces at Forever 21, which means they’re affordable even though they look like some of the designs found at more expensive stores like Lululemon.  Forever 21 isn’t known for being great quality, but I have found their active wear really isn’t too bad, especially for the price.  I have another pair of workout pants that I bought years ago that are still going strong after tons of wears and washes.

Nude Maxi Dress

IMG_7390Maxi dresses are such a staple for spring and summer.  They’re so cute and comfortable and can easily be dressed up or down.  I love the stitched detail on this nude one from bebe, and how stretchy it is, yet form fitting so it gives a nice silhouette but is still comfortable.   I also wore this for a date night the other night and paired it with a leather jacket.  One reason I love bebe is because they offer petite sizes in some of their styles.  It’s still a little long for me to wear it with flats, but with a pair of wedges, its the perfect length!

Foreo LUNA play

I’ve always wanted to try the Foreo Luna, so when I got the chance to try the new Luna Play before it was even released, I was ecstatic! Foreo asked me to participate in their 10 day challenge and I really didn’t expect to see noticeable results in that short of time. I used the Luna Play morning and night for 10 days and I actually saw results by the second use! My pores had shrunk a noticeable amount and my skin felt so much smoother. I love how easy it is to use and the compact size fits really well in my hand and can easily fit into hard to reach places like the sides of my nose.

With all this being said, would I purchase this product with my own money? Probably not. The reason is because while this tiny device works wonders and gave me almost immediate results, this is a disposable device. It is pre-charged with about 100 uses and cannot be recharged once the battery runs out. If it’s used twice a day, that’s about 50 days you will be able to use it, and that’s assuming you keep your cleansing time to a minimum.

The Luna Play is marketed toward someone who wants to try out a facial cleansing device without committing to the full price, rechargeable options, or someone who wants it for travel purposes only, since it’s a smaller version of the full size Luna or Luna Mini. At $39 for 100 uses, I don’t see the Luna Play as being very practical, at least for me. I would rather pay for one of the rechargeable versions that I could use countless times, and if for some reason I didn’t like it, Sephora has an amazing return policy. As for travel, it would be great since it’s so small, but the Luna, and especially the Luna Mini are plenty small enough to be great for travel and not take up much room in your suitcase, and their charge lasts up to 5 months before needing to be recharged. It would also have to only be used for travel since there’s only a limited number of uses and you’ll never know when it might stop working while you’re on a trip. Not only all of this, but one reason many people like the Luna over the Clarisonic brush is because it doesn’t require parts to be replaced such as the brush head.

Since I had such great results and really loved using the Luna Play, I will probably purchase the Luna Mini since it is rechargeable and has more features. Hope this helped if you’re wondering if the Foreo Luna Play is the right facial cleansing device for you.

Buy the Foreo LUNA play here

 

Update: I just found out the LUNA play come with a code to redeem for $39 off the LUNA 2 so if you’re planning on buying the LUNA 2 it may be worth it to try this first since the price ends up going toward it.  If you’re planning to buy the LUNA mini, unfortunately the code cannot be used toward that device.
