The Brightening Power of Vitamin C

Vitamin C (AKA ascorbic acid) is nature’s miracle skin brightener, firmer and smoother. It’s a fantastic anti-oxidant that fights the affects of free-radicals that cause ageing and photodamage.

Masks & Treatments I Swear By

I’ve started to notice that when I don’t take care of myself it shows, in my skin, in my hair, in my weight, and these changes can really impact my mood. One small way I’ve made a change recently is to take half an hour in the week to use masks and treatments.

Brighter Skin

At 17 I burnt my face and chest quite badly, at the time it appeared to recover, it’s only now in my 30s that I’m seeing the long-lasting damage I caused. Earlier this year NUORI launched Supreme-C Serum, a 20 day intensive treatment that helps repair prior skin damage.

Favorite personal care products


Yesterday I booked our airbnb house for June, we’re going to LA with the kids that week. It’s been a while since we’ve had a proper vacation so I’m looking forward to this very much. With the trip planned along with the weather changing I’ve been thinking more and more about getting myself ready. Starting a new workout routine (so hard to stick to for me) and of course being conscious of my diet for starters but also I’m realizing my skin and hair have taken a harsh beating from the dry winter and not exactly beach ready, yet. This week I booked a hair appointment and next week the dentist, something I’ve put off for months because I hate seeing the dentist. HATE it. Being an adult is so…overrated.
So I thought I’d share with you a few of my personal tried-and-true favorites, things I’ve bought again and again because the work so well for me.

Aesop B & Tea toner – this has been one of my favorite go to’s for everyday but especially when I feel a zit coming on.

Iris Hantverk face brush – nice for exfoliating with a gentleman cream cleaners, like this one for example.

Ouai hair masque – my hair is naturally curly so it dries out and breaks faster and easier than most hair. I use these twice a month which has given me noticeable improvement in the texture. Along with several other leave in products, this makes me hair feel softer and healthier.

Ritual essential for women – this offers longer term benefits but taking a multivitamin is crucial for me because I know there are some days my diet isn’t perfectly balanced. This one is specifically for women and I do love the minimal packaging (a plus)!

Glossier stretch concealer – On a normal day I wear very little makeup. I’m not having my picture taken nor do I see a lot of people who I need to impress. ;) I do however have some small scars and redness but I’m not going to spend 30 minutes carefully layering a lot of makeup for a perfect finish. This is ideal for me to dab on with my finger, it gives a natural coverage and blends easily. No doubt the best concealer I’ve tried yet. It’s a keeper.


Mario Badescu drying lotion – a good friend suggested this to me, besides the toner it’s the other product I use if I feel a pimple coming. I had moved this apparently too aggressively for the photos because I somehow mixed the ingredients but you’re not supposed to. Keep the pink sediment at the bottom and dip a q tip all the way through. This can be applied as a spot treatment and really does the job. Sometimes I can keep a pimple at bay with only this stuff.

French Girl lip polish – one of my newest purchases, I wanted something to scrub my lips with because I noticed they get cry a lot. I know I need to drink more water but when I’m in a pinch this helps.

If you have any favorite person products you want to share, feel free to leave it in the comments section below. Nothing is better than personal recommendation to me so please do tell!

A Month of Minimalism / Skincare by Madelynn Furlong


I’ve followed Madelynn for quite a while, years even, and while her style has evolved (whose hasn’t?) one constant has been her inclination toward minimalism. Today she talks about what minimalism means to her and shares her simple skincare routine, the sugar polish has been on my list to try as well!

What does minimalism mean to you?
To me, it a stands for a way of self discovery and means a practice of being considerate about what you let into your life and why. What you let in, often will tell you a lot about yourself. I also think that it is not a sparsity of things (which I think is commonly believed), but it is an intentionality behind everything. Everything serves a purpose.

Does sustainability play a role in minimalism for you?
To some degree, yes. But I will be honest and say that at this point in my life, I prioritize personal aesthetic over sustainability.

What goals do you have for yourself in the new year to make sure you continue to adhere to your minimalist values?
My main love is fashion. I have always been fascinated by how we present ourselves to others and the world, and have spent years discovering my personal style – and have documented the process in a curated closet series. However this year I am paying special attention to my skincare routine. Focusing less on fixing my complexion with makeup, and more on taking care of it through diet, regular facials and a skincare routine. Currently my favorite products are from Aesop, Fresh, Weleda, Dr. Jart and Fig + Yarrow (among a few others). I stick mostly to natural products or lines created for sensitive skin. And since making this switch to a more consistent and concise routine, I have seen a huge difference in my skin- for the better!

Do you find it difficult to stay minimal when it comes to beauty products?
Honestly, no. Dont get me wrong- I love wearing a good beauty look from time to time. But daily I use three to five products: A little Dr Jart cc cream or Chanel foundation, Marc Jacobs highlighter on my cheeks, Glossier boy brow, Dior rose lip cream and every once and a while I will put on mascara and a little bronzer. I keep a few lipsticks colors and fun eyeliners on hand for when I want to do something a bit more out there, but I love a natural look and have always enjoyed keeping things super simple!


I love Boy Brow too! With so many great and tempting products out there and new ones coming out daily, how do you keep your arsenal minimal?
This can be super challenging, as I often get samples to try out and partner with different beauty lines through my blog. I am always open to trying new things! But after a few uses, if I dont feel like its the right fit for my skin, I give it away. No use keeping things around that I wont use! I also try my best to get frequent facials. I have found that a great facialist really does help keep your skin in great shape. Once you get it there, maintaining it is easy. Another great reason to get frequent facials- you dont have to own product, and instead can pay for the service.


If someone wanted to streamline their own beauty cabinet, where would you suggest they begin?
I would say start with the basics. Cleanser, toner, a serum and a cream. Start seeing a facialist regularly and see what they recommend for you! See how your skin reacts to a more minimal routine and add from there based on your needs. Also analyze your daily routine- what do you always wear and what do you make time for? If you are holding onto products and gadgets that you never use- let them go! I recently realized I had 8 different red lipsticks, and seeing that I hardly ever wear lipstick, I made the choice to bring that number down to my three favorites. I think once you step back and analyze, it can become easier to see what to hold on to and what to let go of.

There is a lot of confusion amongst beauty and skincare consumers about what are good and bad ingredients. My current solution is to look for natural and organic products to use, like Votary who make their products from 100% natural ingredients.

favorites from the week

Yesterday was my 9 year wedding anniversary. Of course I didn’t Instagram any of it, so did it really happen? ;) Actually we spent the day alone without the kids and my husband planned the day with breakfast then paddle boarding and later a movie. We saw The Lobster, which I liked except that there was a man sitting directly in front of us with a laughing problem and he would laugh at every little thing and very loudly. There were a few tragic scenes and the entire theater would be hushed and he would just belly lough so loudly. Other than that it was a really nice day.

/I thought I’d share a few favorite newish things floating around the house this week. The dress I wore last night is a micro pleated metallic dress from Zara.
/I have also been searching for a good make up remover/cleanser for a while and a friend recommended this cleansing water by Korean brand Dr. Jart and so far I love it. Even after I washed my face this removed more dirt/makeup so my skin feels super clean!
/Ikea’s Viktig collection, a collab with Swedish artist Ingegerd Råman, is selling out but I really like these glass bowls. They’re sort of a soup or cereal sized bowl but I’ve been using them for fresh berries with breakfast. Their shape is so nice and the glass is thick and crystal clear, not at all tinted like some glass.
/A couple days ago I also picked up the latest copy of OAK magazine and to be entirely honest I haven’t managed to get through the whole thing yet but from what I’ve seen so far it’s full of great material. You can find the previous issue #4 here.
/Lastly, I’ve started yoga & barre classes and needed a new yoga mat so I ordered this extra long white one, though I’m already second guessing my ability to keep it clean! Also, now I need a good strap for it. I’m thinking I might DIY one from leather…?
