Bumps Be Gone! 7 Products To Combat Keratosis Pilaris


As a mom there are many things you wish your kids would inherit from your gene pool. A cunning sense of humor. A good work ethic. A kind heart. A winning smile. Keratosis Pilaris however, is not one of them. I suffer from a mild case of KP and now I have unfortunately passed down the trait to my daughter who seems to have a more severe case than I do.

In case you’re unfamiliar, Keratosis Pilaris, or “chicken skin” as it’s sometimes called. It's a common skin condition that causes patches of fine bumps on back of arms, legs, and sometimes even the face. It’s not medically serious or dangerous, but more of an annoyance to those who suffer from it. Nearly 40 percent of people have these small raised bumps, and sadly there is no miracle cure to zap them away. But there are however skin-care products on the market that may help diminish the appearance of them. If you suffer from KP too, I rounded up 7 products to combat those pesky bumps in my latest Mode.com post. Click below to see the full story.

Bargain Buys: 10 Dainty Necklaces To Replace Your Statement Bling

For longest time statement necklaces have been taking the spotlight off of dainty gems, but I’m here to take a stand! As an accessory minimalist myself, I believe that these delicate trinkets deserve the right to our accessory closets! Leave the over-the-top, over-sized necklaces to the side, and slip one of these subtle beauties instead. Wear them alone or layer them together. Either way these little gems will put a smile on your face, and keep your wallets very happy!

Summer of Aero: P.S. from Aeropostale Summer Collection


Memorial Day weekend is almost here which means that summer is only a hop, skip, and jump away! Luckily, Arianna is already summer-ready with some clothing courtesy of P.S. Aeropostale. We did our shopping haul a few days ago, but I would definitely take advantage of their Memorial Day Sale  if I were you!

We each had our favorite pieces from the new collection, like this floral A-line print dress Ari picked and fell in love with. Meanwhile, I was particularly fond of the crochet trim woven shorts and neon crepe tank. We did a little compromising and think we got a great start on her summer wardrobe. Take a look!

OOTD: Birthday Roses

Hi Lovies! I know I've been a little MIA lately, but I'm back - and with an outfit post no less! Over the weekend we celebrated my thirty (cough) something birthday and this is one of the outfits I wore to dinner. I decided to keep it casual since we would be celebrating over the course of a few days. On Friday, (my actual birthday), we stayed local and Arianna took it upon herself to arrange everything. She even picked the restaurant and made sure that all my needs were met. Which was really cute by the way. Because if you know Ari, you know she loooves attention. And to see her not only relinquish the attention, but also dote on me the entire day, well you know that's love! LOL! In fact, it was better than any gift she could've given me.

As far as the outfit, it was new. The top and linen jacket are from a brand called Premise Studio, which I've never really heard of but I'm definitely going to keep an eye out for more pieces. I really liked the fit and the materials felt great. The rest of the details are below. Have a great week!
