I AM LOVING THIS SO MUCH! If you don’t know about Gilt Group, you’ve been missing out. Think designer everything on a regular gal’s budget (most of the time).

Fab & Frugal Deal of the Day: Bobby Pins

Good morning again, fashionable friends!

I love these adorable jeweled bobby pins from Nordstroms. They may seem a tad pricey for bobby pins, but they’re durable and timeless. They’re the perfect hint of sparkle for short hair or long hair and they can make a dull day bun seem like a work of art.

Go. Buy. Look fabulous!

Pin-strocity Day 5: Beat Dry Skin

Good morning, fashionable friends!

Day 5 of the sixty day challenge was probably close to one of the best things I’ve tested on Pinterest…ever. To be fair, my mom did mention something about this to me a few months ago, but I saw it on Pinterest and only then did I officially try it for the first time.

Winter air in Texas can be harsh. What suffers most from the turbulent wind and icy breeze is not so much my body temperature, but my skin. Everything just feels dry and sort of aged; however, this brilliant Pin has changed all of that.

#1. Shower/bathe in warm water (not hot)

#2. Towel dry skin very gently

#3. Apply a moisturizing oil. I included a link to my favorite body oil below, but the original Pinner recommended Johnson’s.

#4. Get dry (do your makeup, hair, etc.)

#5. Apply regular moisturizer
