How I Style Thrift Finds: Graphic T-Shirt



In the past I have shared that I find some great items while thrifting, but what I don't share is how I style them. The thing about thrifting, is 1. You never know what you're going to find and 2. You'll never find a "perfect ready-to-wear" piece. I mean you might, but its rare. You can't plan what you're going to find you walk into a thrift store–you can manifest something (like Rocio when she found the perfect pair of white ski pants and winter coat)–but you can't be too bummed if you walk out with nothing. It just happens sometimes, but sometimes you walk out feeling like you struck the motherlode. 
10-Day Challenge with Hempathy + GIVEAWAY

Today I'm sharing another skincare review and hosting a giveaway with some of the products! I love, love, love testing out new skincare products because I have combination skin and battle with cystic acne, I'm always looking for new and refreshing products to put into my skincare routine. In the past year I have been more open to CBD and Hemp products, more than I ever have been in my life. I'm starting to see why these products are so wildly popular and the benefits from them. So when I received a campaign deal with Hempathy I was instantly intrigued.

In the PR package I received 4 full-size products + 4 sample sizes of the products. These products are cruelty-free and made in the USA. I tested out all of the products for 10-days and focused on my health (mental + physical). By combining a healthy mindset and focusing on using clean and natural products like Hempathy, I was able to see a difference in not only my skin but I just glowed differently overall.

Exfoliating Scrub
I have to start with my favorite product. Everyone needs a good facial scrub especially on a day where you are more active than others. It really gets into the gritty stuff on your face and cleans it out. I also like when I can feel a scrub and the beads in this product are larger and I feel like I'm really scrubbing away the dirt. I used this product for 10-days straight and saw a difference in my skin. I have pretty large pores (even though I almost never get blackheads) and after using this product consistently for over a week, I saw a difference in my pores. They appeared smaller and cleaner throughout the week. This product is more expensive than I usually pay for a face wash, but I would definitely consider repurchasing if I notice a big difference in my acne after by the time I run out of this product.

Refreshing Eye Cream
This eye cream is hands down the silkiest eye cream I have ever used. I'm used to using more gel based eye creams, but this was soft and creamy. Of course a little goes a long way, but this pump does not allow for just a "little" to come out. Keep that in mind when trying to pump some of the product out because it comes out fast and string like. I think packaging for eye cream is best as a container not a pump, but that's just my opinion. As far as the product itself, it's a good product. I don't have anything bad to say about it, but I also don't have a lot to say about it. I just don't think 10-days is enough time to see a difference with testing out a new eye cream. It did make my eyes soft though because of how soft it is!

Revitalizing Body Lotion
I'd like to start this review by saying I am extremely picky when it comes to body lotions. I typically do not like a lot of body lotions either because of the scent or thickness of the product. If a lotion is too water-based for me, I don't care for it most of the time. I really stick to the same 2-3 lotions I buy and even though I won't be purchasing this specific product down the road, doesn't mean you won't like it. It's not that I didn't like it, it just doesn't work for my skin type. The smell was fine, it wasn't too perfumey or leave any weird lingering smells. I just prefer a thicker lotion and just like the eye cream, I don't think 10-days is long enough to see a drastic change. I also saw this on the website and maybe I was using it wrong, but according to the website it's a type of body lotion you should use while in the shower. "Best used after a shower to help lock in moisture and maintain optimum hydration levels.  Allow it to absorb into your skin for ultimate protection and hydration."

Rejuvenating Face Oil
You all know I love my facial oils. I typically buy the $10 ones from TJ Maxx and that's not going to change. Even though this facial oil was really nice and definitely left my skin glowing, I don't know about the price. I feel as though there are probably other facial oils that give the same effect but for cheaper 🤷🏼‍♀️. Maybe I'm wrong, but I still liked this facial oil. It left my skin feeling soft and honestly quite glowing. I usually do facial oils at night with a night cream and it blended well with everything. I think that this product combined with the facial scrub–used over a long period of time–will show results.

Currently Reading: This Is Not A Fashion Story by Danielle Bernstein


This book review should come as no surprise to those who follow me on Instagram. I got through this entire book during my California/Arizona trip. I've been following We Wore What for years now, but truthfully I never knew the person behind the account. I just liked her photos. I saw other influencers that I follow raving about this book so I decided to get it because it seemed like a light read, perfect for a beach trip. "This Is Not A Fashion Story" was more than just a "light read." At lets for me. I know it sounds odd, but this book was life changing for me. It made me thinking about blogging and fashion in a whole new way and inspired me to do more with my own blog. The way Danielle speaks (or writes I should say) is so authentic and witty and just makes you go, "Ah, that makes sense. Why didn't I think of that?" I can't recommend this book enough, especially if you have a passion for writing and fashion.

What is the book about?
Danielle Bernstein is a fashion blogger, designer and now bestselling author. She started We Wore What after dropping out of college and diving head first into fashion. It's literally, NOT a fashion story, but rather a story about a fashionista. It's a little about her past, how she found her love for fashion, her college years, her heartbreaks, her business and everything in between. She holds nothing back in this book (the first chapter starts with a sex scene so yeah, it's a bit of a tell-all). She shares her mistakes and lessons learned but also her secrets as to how she turned her hobby into a million dollar company.

Who would enjoy this book?
There are a lot of different groups of people who would enjoy this book. If you're a fan of We Wore What or Danielle, you will hear her tone of voice on every page. If you're into blogging and fashion, this book will resonate with you. If you're looking to give your business a boost then you will connect with this book and get a new perspective on how to do things.

Why did I want to read this book?
As I mentioned before, I knew of We Wore What but didn't know who was behind the blog or Instagram page. When I saw so many other influencers raving about this book it made me want to read it. Plus it's a book about fashion in New York City–say no more.

What’s the tone of voice of this book?
Danielle's voice is very witty and sarcastic, but in a fun way. Her stories are so intriguing and makes you want to keep reading. You find yourself wanting more to the story just to keep reading more about her life. I'm super excited for her next book!

Favorite part of this book?
Right away the first chapter opens up wit a sex scene and I was hooked. Her story of how she started her book is the most interesting to me because she describes her travel day to Los Angeles and how she simply just started writing. It was very inspiring and motivating all at once.

Sick Day Essentials
COVID-19 aside, everyones going to have a sick day. I had one just last week after working two weddings and being on my feet all week, when Monday came around I felt like I had been hit by a bus. My throat was sore and I just wanted to sleep. Sick days are meant to give your body rest, because we all need it from time to time. If you're feeling like one of those days are approaching make sure you have all the necessities.
