It’s official. The Black Friday Shopbop sale is here – 2 days in advance! This sale is one of my favorites of the holiday season, with 20-30% off all full-priced merch (depending on how much you spend), plus 100s of additional items that are already deeply discounted. And the cherry on top? You receive that 20-30% discount on all sale items too. Woohoo!
Moisturizing is a crucial step in any skincare routine, particularly in the fall & winter. (For simplicity’s sake, I am lumping together moisturizers and face oils for this post.) Moisturizers hydrate and plump skin for a more youthful appearance, have anti-aging benefits, can reduce redness and balance skin tone. By their nature, they also prevent your skin from feeling tight and developing dry patches during the harsh winter months, which can make it practically impossible to apply makeup. (Seriously – have you ever tried to apply makeup over a dry patch? It flakes off, makes everything look worse and, in short, is beyond frustrating!) Another benefit? They seal in all the goodness from your serums and eye creams.
Blazers are the workhorse of my fall wardrobe. I hoard styles in houndstooth, velvet, boucle, tweed, herringbone, plain old wool, etc. I don’t discriminate against colors either – earth tones, bright hues and plaid all make the cut too. Single-breasted, double-breasted, peplum, cropped, or long, I have never met a style I didn’t like.
