What I Wore to Miami Swim Week – Part 1

August 7, 2017

About 2 years ago, Tom and I did that crazy, glorious thing that some couples tend to do, and packed up our things for a 6-week road trip across the United States. Admittedly, the first two times we visited were not our greatest. We arrived in what was considered a rare torrential downpour for full days of rain, with barely a break to see South Beach or any sun, but hey, great company and no injuries only meant I count my blessing because we still had a great time.

My parents constantly told me to stay out of the sun and to take good care of my skin, but back then, I was a tomboy and turned away beauty products. I didn’t like how body moisturizers felt on my skin and was so bad at remembering to apply them after my shower. It wasn’t until I moved to California over a year ago that I realized how thirsty my skin was.

I wasn’t drinking enough water, the climate was hot and dry, and my skin started looking dull. This was the year I needed a complete overhaul of my skincare routine. I knew I needed to seek out for products. Continue Reading…
