GLOWY SKIN 101


Glowing; everyone has been obsessed with getting that healthy sheen for the past year or so and I'm not going to lie, I've been trying to find the perfect items for some time now to help me achieve that nice glow. After a few months, I've come up with a routine that has benefited my skin so much that I just had to share these items with you guys.


THIS BRONZING OIL OMG, so if you know me in IRL then you may know that I am so in love with anything Parisian, especially beauty and fashion. So when I stumbled up French Girl Organics on Etsy I already knew that I was going to fall in love with the brand I mean, their completely organic and vegan how could I not? This bronzing oil has been a staple in my beauty routine because it gives your skin a nice subtle bronze, sun-kissed glow, without it looking too fake. Not only is it nicely pigmented, it also provides a lot of hydration because of the coconut oil and substantially grown palm kernel oil. 


Coconut oil has been claimed as such a cure-all for a lot of things, but what coconut oil is for me is the ultimate item to have in your skincare regime. Cocovit Coconut Oil is antibacterial, antifungal, paraben free, GMO- and chemical-free, their products are amazing and such high quality that you literally want to buy the whole line because it has so many benefits for your skin. But, today I really want to talk about the original Cocovit Coconut Oil since it's been a staple in my beauty routine. I use my Cocovit for pretty much everything like, for removing my makeup, as a lip balm, for my split ends, and for moisturizing my skin. I love using this product while I apply my highlight because I feel like it does intensify my Becca highlight. 


Not only is the product aesthetically pleasing, it also does everything that claims to do. This scrub also completely vegan and is made out of walnut shells, it helps in regenerating new skin cells and stimulating blood flow, which can reduce the appearance of stretch marks and cellulite. After using it for a couple of months I have noticed that my cellulite has been reduced and so have my stretch marks. I love using this product, once a week, all over my body because it just rubs away all the dead skin cells and makes your skin feel so soft afterward. Combine this and your fave moisturizer/oil and without a doubt, your skin will feel brand spanking new.


This Daily Concepts Renewal is my favorite thing to use after a good scrub, this oil contains a blend of rosemary, lavender, and eucalyptus to stimulate circulation while effectively removing toxins, it also does help reduce cellulite. This oil, combined with the scrub, makes my skin feels so luxurious and makes me feel like I have my life together. I do wish they sold this item in a bigger bottle because I don't feel there is a lot or product and I feel like I'm always running low but until then I will forever continue to buy the smaller bottle so I can get my glow on and shine my way into a better future. 


until next time guys!

TOBI x CLOTHES MINDED



Hey guys! Today I partnered up with Tobi to style this bodysuit ( which I LOVE ) for a cute spring/summer night look. 



I styled this rose lace bodysuit with some high-waisted black ripped knee jeans and a cool vegan leather jacket. I love how this look is part girly with that subtle pop of lace and pink, it's also part grungy because of the ripped knee and leather jacket which makes it perfect for a night out around town. 


What I love about this body suit is that it does fit amazing, the open back detailing is super cute, and you can pretty much style it with everything since it's so versatile!  
Thank you so much to Tobi for collaborating with me on the last two blog posts, their clothes are amazing, affordable and they were amazing to work with. 

till next time!

ALL TIED UP


Hey guys, holy crap it's been a minute but I'm back and excited to share what I have on today! Now I don't know if you know but as of late I've been so obsessed with finding that perfect white spring/summer dress and I'm so happy to announce that I, Andie, have found said dress. 





I mean could this dress be any cuter?! I love the wrap detailing, how flowy it looks on, and how deep the neckline but still, keeps it classy. Also, not a lot of wrap or slip dresses have an under slip and I'm so happy this one does. I kept my accessories to a minimum ( literally barely any ) because I really wanted the dress to stand out. I styled my wrap dress with a cute colorful scarf to add a nice pop, a denim jacket, because who would I be if I didn't wear my jacket, plus I love how it dresses it down a bit and topped it off with some converse and voila! an easy peasy go-to spring/summer outfit. 

I just wanted to give a huge shout out to at Tobi for collaborating with me and sponsoring this ootdd. Tobi is amazing and their quality of clothing is impressive and they were such a please to work with. Keep your eyes peeled for some more Tobi stuff in the future! 

Till next time, 
xoxo Andie  

TRAVEL DIARIES: SEQUOIA PT. 2


Hey guys! as you may know, I'm a nature enthusiast. I love nothing more than getting lost in the woods and even when I'm running I imagine that I'm back in the middle of the forest. There's something about trees and being in the woods that just seems magical to me and that's why I love going to Sequoia. Sequoia is not only known for its beauty, it's also known for having some of the tallest trees in the world. 












 I hope you guys enjoyed this little photo diary of my recent trip! and if you're in some need of some magic or you need to just get away for a bit check out Sequoia National Park.

till next time,

AT HOME TEETH WHITENING FOR THE COFFEE OBSESSED


Hey guys! If you know me, then you know that I love my coffee. I drink about 2-3 cups of coffee a day, what can I say ya girl loves caffeine, but I know that it can really do some damage my teeth by staining them yellow. However, I take that risk but I do have something that can help combat those pesky stains and keep my teeth bright white, that's what I wanted to talk to you guys about today.

I was recently contacted by a company called Smile Brilliant and let me tell you their products are pretty brilliant. I've tried so many teeth whitening products but some of them make my teeth to sensitive or leave patches. With Smile Brilliant I was pleasantly surprised that I didn't experience any sensitivity when doing any of the whitening processes and it didn't leave any of those bright white dehydrated patches.



Here's how the process went; after I was contacted I was sent molds for my teeth and sent back the impressions. After a week and a half, I got my teeth whitening trays and was ready to start the process of getting gorgeous white teeth. With my at home teeth whitening kit, I didn't just get the trays, I also received 3 tubes of whitening gel and of desensitizing gel and let me tell you those tubes go a long way! after a few days of use I've noticed a slight improvement and keep in mind I was still drinking my coffee. After a few weeks, I couldn't stop smiling because my teeth were so white and bright and just made me that much more confident. All still while drinking coffee.



(before and after) 

What I love about this at home teeth whitening kit is that it's custom-made for your teeth! while other products aren't this one really just takes the cake for the best whitening kit ever. Not only that you can literally do anything while your whitening. I usually worked on my blog or styled my outfits for weeks of blog posts and travel diaries. I'm so glad I got to try out this amazing product!

Huge thanks to Smile Brilliant for sponsoring this post and in collaboration with them I'll be doing a giveaway! if you enter this giveaway you have a chance at winning a personalized gift code to use on the site - it will be for the value of $139 which is the price of your own T3 Sensitive kit! Giveaway ends on March 27th, 2017 so make sure to enter in before then by going to www.smilebrilliant.com/g/clothessminded  

till next time guys!

FEBRUARY FAVORITES


Hey guys! Can you believe that February is over and done with? It's the third month of the year already, excuse me while I hyperventilate about time going too fast. Another month down though does mean another month of finding new products, testing them out, and seeing which ones will be added on to my list of favorites. 


Glossier, I mean even the name seems aesthetically pleasing. Not only do their products have amazing, minimalistic packaging, their makeup and skincare line is amazing! I'm so in love with both of their products and I literally use them every day. During the weekdays I like to let my skin be and do my usual skincare routine and then add some "Generation G" which I have in the color 'Leo' it's a nice nude/brown color with a nice matte finish. I also use "Boy Brow" it's a nice brow pomade that tames my hairs into place and lets my brows look naturally full. 


If you have undereye bags or need something that makes it seem that you at least slept this month then this is the product for you. I am a horrible sleeper and I sometimes forget that under eyes need love too, and I found this product at my local Ulta and decided to give it a shot since my eye puffiness was out of this world. I first fell in love with the packing and then I fell in love with the product within 10 minutes of using it. It's so cooling, hydrating, get rid of any puffiness and makes it seem like you have a normal sleeping schedule. 


( by the way, I'm wearing "Boy Brow" and "Leo" in this picture )


Smile Brilliant; the secret behind my teeth. Being an avid coffee drinker, I know how important it is to be on top of your teeth and the dangers of coffee stains. I've been using this product for a while and I really love it! I first was reached out to by a rep from Smile Brilliant and I was so excited when I saw the results, but more on that coming up soon! 

I hope you guys enjoyed this post!

till next time,

RAIN DROPS & TOP KNOTS


Hey guys! It's been a while since I posted but I had to take a bit of a break because life came into play and I had to focus on other things. However, I am so happy to be back blogging and sharing my style! It has been so gray and rainy this weekend so I thought what a better way to get back into the swing of blogging by sharing my own rainy day style. 


When it comes to rainy days all I can think about is athleisure wear, so oversized hoodies and etc, I donned my customized Topshop oversized gray hoodie with some minimal jewelry ( gold of course ) and these amazing Levis. 



I topped my look off with these amazing vintage-esque glasses in gold and my usual top knot, because it's such an easy and effortless style. 


It feels so good to be back and blogging again! I have a bunch of more #OOTD's lined up and fun collabs that I can't wait to show you guys! 

till next time, 
xoxo Andie
