Up until recently I was a “wash my face with Neutrogena Clean & Clear and call it a day” kind of girl. I had mild acne as a teen with easily-scarred combination skin. I never moisturized and wondered why my skin was tight and oily. Despite aestheticians telling me over and over again that I needed to start cleansing more gently and moisturizing my dehydrated skin, I resisted. That all changed when I was introduced to Aesop six months ago. I am now the kind of girl with a 10-step morning and nighttime skincare routine that involves multiple moisturizers. I’ve seen a dramatic change in my skin and thought I’d share with you my absolute favourite products.
I was told that the thing to eat in San Diego is Mexican food. Being only 20 minutes from the Mexican border, this Californian paradise boasts some of the best tacos, burritos, and churros around. With almost 2,000 Google reviews attesting to the deliciousness of their worth-the-wait food I knew I had to give it a try. We ended up waiting about an hour and a half outside of the aptly-named The Taco Stand in La Jolla for the best tacos I have ever had in my life. With unlimited sauce refills and giant portions (look at that guac!), this is a bucket list destination. Buen provecho, indeed.
Equal parts sophisticated and practical, the Mary Jane is the perfect shoe! When I saw Chanel’s latest interpretation during their Resort 2019 show I thought it was the ultimate Mary Jane. One of the big trends for Spring is white tights and white shoes, and this was executed perfectly by Chanel. As a dancer white tights are my go-to, so I was thrilled to get the chance to wear them in my every day life. I paired this white-on-white look with a gorgeous velvet Chloé dress I picked up at Nordstrom Rack and the Blair Waldorf-esque headband of my dreams.
