Gamiss Review

by Lesley Kim

Hi everyone! Now that the weather is finally cooling down, I am excited to take out my coats, jacket, boots and scarves from the back of my closet. Fall is my favorite season of all time, probably because of the style associated with this season. Living in California, where it is usually sunny and warm but cool in the evenings, one can never have too many jackets and scarves for layering. I was pretty excited when Gamiss asked me to choose some items from their website to style for my blog and post a Gamiss Review. I selected the chic faux leather jacket and ultra large scarf that is perfect for this cool season. My order arrived within 3 days, which I thought was extremely fast and efficient. My faux leather jacket, which cost $28.49, is super comfortable and will be perfect for our weather here in California. If you need a jacket to wear on top of a sweater, I recommend getting a size up. Mine is a size Small, which is perfect to layer on top of light clothing, but a little tight for a thick sweater. The large soft scarf I received from Gamiss is one of my favorite accessory. It is large enough to wear as a shawl or as an oversized scarf, and for $11.70, it is a steal!

Sunny Day in November

by Lesley Kim

Hi everyone!  I took a hiatus from social media and I have to say it was a much needed break.  I am not really into social media to begin with, and would merely dabble in Facebook to check up on friends and Instagram to show a little bit of my blog. This month however, I really went off of social media, and I have to say,  I really enjoyed life much better… And I don’t think I am going back either.   How do you feel about social media?

Anyway, it has been sunny and warm here in Calabasas with temperatures in the low 80’s.  It almost felt like summer, and today, I am dressed like it is summer.  My romper is super adorable, which I bought from Nordstrom Rack.  I am too lazy to look for the brand, but I will add it once I do find out.  My gladiator sandals are by Bucco, sunnies from Kenneth Cole, and my lovely bracelet by Pandora.

Halloween by Rosegal

by Lesley Kim

Hi everyone!! Halloween is just around the corner and I have been getting ready for this ghoulish day by accessorizing my wardrobe and home with some Halloween themed items. Rosegal sent me some adorable Halloween items that I wanted to share with you today.  I received 2 well made, Halloween throw pillow covers which go perfectly with my typical home decor because of their neutral colors. The throw pillow covers are adorable, and has a linen texture that I love.  For less than $8 a piece, I think these throw pillows are a bargain that will add that special Halloween touch to your home.

Another item I received is this Halloween pullover sweater, on sale for  $13.93.  This is a cozy sweater that I plan on wearing even after Halloween.  The texture is soft and the size Small is perfect for wearing over leggings and a pair of leather boots.

GOTZ Bad Ischl Oxygen Facial Tonic Review

by Lesley Kim

Hi everyone, I started using the GOTZ Bad Ischl Oxygen Facial Tonic a week ago and I must say I am really liking the results I’m getting. If you are familiar with my blog, I like to use mostly natural skincare products because less chemicals are always best. We are often bombarded with harsh chemicals in our environment whether we we like it or not. So on things that I can control (like skin care), I use organic if possible or all natural. This oxygen facial tonics by GOTZ has all natural ingredients like sage flower, echinacea extract, calendula and eucalyptus.  It is all natural, paraben free, and cruelty.

The GOTZ Bad Ischl Oxygen Facial Tonic was given to me, free of charge, to review. It is being sold on Amazon for $35 for 2 fluid oz.  You can spray it on a cotton ball and apply to cleansed skin or you can spray it directly onto your skin. I prefer to spray directly onto my face right after cleansing, followed by my favorite moisturizer. I found this to be the most effective way of application, as the GOTZ Bad Ischl Oxygen Facial Tonic creates a moist environment for my moisturizer to fully soak in. The directions say that the most effective way for the tonic is to soak a cotton ball and leave directly on the face.  I tried this method and I thought it did work very well, but require some time.

I don’t know if it is the combination of moisturizer and tonic that is creating a more glowing complexion, but I am noticing a positive change in my skin. The GOTZ Bad Ischl Oxygen Facial Tonic does have an herbal scent to it, similar to black tea or an herbal tea. To me, this just emphasizes this product is all natural without any added scent or chemicals.  Throughout the day, I would also spray a few spritz unto my clean skin just for added moisturizing benefits. The description states this tonic is helpful for breakouts, and my skin generally does not break out, but this tonic has created a smoother, more glowing appearance.

Pink and Denim

by Lesley Kim

Hi everyone!  It’s starting to feel like Fall here in SoCal.  I am loving the change in weather. In the past few weeks, it’s been scorching here in the Valley, the temps reaching 100 degrees, and it was brutal. Now, it’s starting to feel like the beautiful weather I fell in love with when I first move to California. (I can’t believe its been over 10 years.  Does that mean I can say I am a Cali girl now? =)). Today was actually about 75 degrees, which was amazingly perfect.  I can wear some denim and not necessarily have to bundle up.  For my ootd, I am wearing a hot pink top I purchased from Nordstrom Rack, sunnies by BP by Nordstrom, old earrings, denim jeans from Tillys, and Ivanka Trump shoes.  What is the weather like right now where you live?
