Daily Look New Year’s Eve Style Challenge!

I am back with another style post and I hope you’ll like it! New years eve is coming up quick and every year I go through the same few questions, where am I going, what are we doing, and most important, what am I going to wear?!

This year I got a head start on what to wear because last week someone from dailylook.com reached out to me and asked me to participate in their New Year’s Eve Style Challenge! I was asked to find my favorite little black dress from dailylook.com and use that as my inspiration for a New Years Eve look! They have a ton of LBD’s and I quickly found a few favorites!

I eventually decided to go for the Dakota Dalrie Vegan Leather Dress! So in other words, my LBD is actually a Little black vegan leather dress. I love anything sparkling for New Years Eve, but this past year I have been connecting more with my edgy side when it comes to styling. And by that I mean in the sense that I now wear vegan leather and the occasional distressed denim! I love how this dress is so simple, yet sophisticated, edgy and it can be styled in so many ways. I could wear it like this for new years, and then wear it with a long gray cozy cardigan, cool tights, booties and a cute scarf for work.

What do you think? I wanted to do New Years Eve a little different that than just the regular dress and heels this year so I decided to pair it with sequin oxfords from Kate Spade. Because who doesn’t like sequins? And oxfords are always a good idea! I added some subtle pops of color with the green jacket from dailylook.com and my favorite tear drop bracelets from Margaret Elizabeth. I am getting really into statement earrings these days and loved these from dailylook.com! They also have that little edge to them. Who knows, maybe by next year I’ll be a rocking biker babe? Probably not, but I digress. With a simple dress and it being New Years and all, I figured I could really amp up the makeup!

Do you have a style idea in mind for New Years Eve yet? How would you style the little black dress?

Until Next Time, Hadet på Badet!

DIY Exfoliating Face Mask!

Lately my skin has been in desperate need of some extra attention. I don’t know if its because of the weather, the way I am eating (Apple pie anyone?), or just coincidences, but it needed something. My skin is pretty sensitive so I try to keep my skincare as natural as possible. I am also terrified of all the hidden chemicals in skincare and makeup! Had you ever heard about parabens before they became a no-no? Me neither. I bet there are more no-no’s in there somewhere, we just don’t know about them yet. Sound crazy? Well, I just think there has to be another way, and here it is!

After Pinteresting for a while, wait, is that a verb yet? Anyways, after perusing Pinterest for natural homemade facial masks, I learned that apparently Cinnamon is the best natural pore extractor/cleanser. Who knew? I then found this simple DIY facial mask that consists of Honey and Cinnamon. Yepp, that’s it! Honey for moisture and Cinnamon for pore exfoliating. I have been using it twice a week for a good month now, and I can really tell a difference. Unfortunately I didn’t do any before after shots, but I did make a 1-2-3 guide on how you can make your own!

3. Put it on your face, leave your eyes alone and play on your phone for about 15 minutes. Cleanse off and do a couple of circular movements around your own pore clusters (chin, nose, forehead). Dry off and put on a gentle calming moisturizer. I love this one from Trader Joe’s! It’s simple, has SPF, affordable and my esthetician approved it :) Win!DIY Exfoliating Cinnamon Facemask

Disclaimer: You will turn red for about 30 minutes after the mask so don’t do this right before the annual ball!

Give it a try and let me know how you like it?
