In & Out (early March randomness)


- Avene Diacneal, a very gentle yet effective night time treatment with glycolic acid and retinaldehyde that helps fade post-blemish marks. It does stain pillowcases though, so beware.

- light nail polishes! Out with the blacks and browns... I'm currently wearing Essie's Mint Candy Apple on my toes and Van D'go on my nails

- the TaskCard Mini app for Mac computers, perfect for little to-do lists and shopping lists

- trying to buckle down and not spend any money on clothes this month! I've done it before so it's not that big of a challenge, but it's hard when there are so many beautiful things out there... I'm currently drooling over this sexy Herve Leger dress from their Spring collection and a pair of Cutler & Gross sunglasses:

I'm usually not a fan of Herve Leger dresses since they're all a bit too "Kim Kardashian" for my taste and are quite predictable (and not to mention their ridiculous price points) but every once in a while they make me go "ooooh!" and the asymmetrical piece above was one of them.


- long nails. I tried keeping long nails this week and I hated every minute of it. Short nails are the way to go for me.

- SNOW! It snowed again over the weekend and I'm super depressed about it.

- feeling rather down and unmotivated... I think this ridiculously long winter is to blame

- eyeshadow... I haven't been wearing any for the past 3 days. I'm going to start again tomorrow because I do love the Eyes of March idea but it was nice to take a bit of a break


  1. the avene treatment sounds great i going to try it! it is snowing here today too

  2. That is a great dress! I know it's time crack down on the spending but every new season it's hard to resist. Just need to get more creative with what I have. Hang in there the snow won't be there for ever!

  3. I totally agree with you on Herve Leger dresses, but that one is amazing!!
    I've also been excited about wearing lighter and brighter polishes for spring/summer. I just did a post on my newest coral polish! I'll have to check out the Essie color you mentioned :)

  4. I haven't worn eyeshadows ... in 3 weeks ! i don't miss them so far, and I'm sick of winter as well

  5. This dress is really cool and edgy, i think you should buy it, you could wear it in winter and summer and layer stuff over it and under it.

  6. How long have you been using the Avene Diacneal, any results? I'm on the search for something like this ^_^


  7. @Charls I've been using it for about a month and it definitely helped imporove the appearance of my skin
