Anthropologie Flares

I walked into Anthropologie last week on a mission to find the perfect pair of distressed skinny jeans. So naturally I came home with a pair of flares instead. I couldn’t resist the front pockets and the high rise waist on these. Whoever invented high-waisted pants must’ve been a mom. Just sayin’. Oh, and they have a lot of stretch to them so I ended up going down a size. If you’ve been looking to add a pair of flares to your closet this Spring, I highly recommend these!

I’m not sure how I ended up wearing denim on denim twice in one week. Oh yes I do…I pulled this skirt out trying to decide if I should take it in to get it hemmed or not (?) and somehow ended up wearing it. It feels like a very awkward length on me….like I might as well be wearing this. I also have the vision of Justin & Britney in all denim everything forever ingrained in my mind. Not exactly the look I was going for. =)

Vans Sk8 hi-tops Madewell

I’ve never really felt like I could pull off hi-tops because of my chicken ankles. I just felt like I looked a bit like Ronald McDonald in them. But then I saw these and just could not say no. And well, Britt from The Bachelor (even though she wore Converse) looked so cute in them (hi-tops) that I decided to go for it. BTW, this is the first season I’ve watched of The Bachelor in years. Kind of got sucked back in somehow. Can’t wait for the “Ladies Tell All” tonight. Are you watching this season?

MICRODERM360 Giveaway

Today I am SOOOOOO excited to share my new favorite beauty tool ever…the Microderm360. I’ve used plenty of scrubs that promise microdermabrasion results but nothing has come close to the results I’ve gotten from my Microderm360. My skin was instantly smoother, softer and brighter after just one use. And the proof was right there on the filter. I know this may be a little TMI for some of you but…seeing the dead skin cells on each filter is like INSTANT gratification. Oh, and it is like a miracle worker on pesky blackheads.

Here’s how it works: Make sure you start off with clean & dry skin. Then choose the diamond tip you want to use depending on the area you are treating. And ALWAYS use a new clean filter for each treatment. I alternate between the fine tip and super fine target tip for my face and neck/decolletage. Then I keep the fine tip on for my hand treatment. And for my final treatment, I change the filter and switch to the large coarse tip for the sagging skin area just above my knees as well as my heels. Then I finish up by spraying the treated areas with the Soothe360 mist and applying my favorite moisturizers. I should probably mention that I do this routine only at nightime as it leaves your skin slightly pink. I promise it is not as time consuming as it sounds (like 5 minutes total) and the results are so instant that it is totally worth it.

The instructions say to use your Microderm360 2-3 times a week for best results. I personally use quite a few exfoliants so I’ve been alternating between my prescription Retin-A, a glycolic leave-on treatment and then on the third (or fourth) day I use my Microderm360. It is SO addicting that I am tempted to use it more.

And now…the part you’ve been waiting for…THE GIVEAWAY. One lucky Stylish Housewife reader will win their very own Microderm360 kit with the bonus super fine target tip, 100 extra filters, one Soothe360 spray and one bottle of Cleanse360 valued at $338 (US)!!!

They say…”If you haven’t worn it in a year, get rid of it”. I don’t know who “they” are but if I followed that rule, I never would have found this striped dress in the back of my closet. I think the rule should be more along the lines of…”if you bought it and STILL (as in NEVER) haven’t worn it in a year…then MAYBE…consider getting rid of it! But speaking of getting rid of things, I really am trying to clean out my closet. I’ve added a bunch of new things to my Poshmark closet so feel free to stop by and make me an offer!
