Home Hunting

Bar III top, Forever 21 black tank top, Forever 21 skirt (bought at, Keds shoes, Pim + Larkin (bought at Piperlime) necklace and Simply Vera purse.

Today's ootd is a casual put-on-the-last-minute outfit that pretty much describes comfy and skirt-y at the same time. I'm wearing the Keds I won from the So Brave Challenge they had and I will tell you they are very comfortable. It is indeed my first time to wear Keds and I couldn't be anymore happier. My go-to purse was a lovely gift from my aunt. I always use this because it is spacious. This is the kind of outfit I would wear when strolling and in this case we went to a lot of cities in the Inland Empire.

Have a fantastic week everyone! :)

Adovia Mineral Skin Care Review

Disclosure: I got this product as part of an advertorial. 

Adovia Dead Sea Mud Mask $30 Value - for Acne, Oily Skin, Blackheads, Eczema, Psoriasis.

This Dead Sea Mud Mask contains 30 Treatments which lasts for 3-4 Months. Each treatment provides the ingredients and results of a $120 facial at a high end dermatology spa! Made with Pure Dead Sea Mud with the highest concentration of minerals - vital for facial skin treatment glow. This mask is made in Israel - by the Dead Sea experts and contains the highest and freshest concentration of Dead Sea Mud. Reduce Oil and Blackheads and get more clear and radiant skin. Works great for Eczema and Psoriasis as well due to Dead Sea salt and mud known properties that help relieve Eczema, Psoriasis and acne symptoms. Apply a layer to clean, dry skin once per week or as needed, as a facial mask for the whole face or as spot treatment for blackheads or pimples.

I rarely apply mud mask to my face and the latest I can remember will be 6 months ago when I bought a small sachet in Target just to try it out. It was fine and I really didn't notice anything so I didn't really thought much of buying a mud mask again. When this opportunity knocked on me on trying a new kind of mud mask I was excited to try something new. And its just not new but better because of its dead sea mineral properties. 

The first time I received this, I was surprised at the packaging of the product. I wasn't expecting a large and for the lack of word, fat container filled with dead sea mud mask goodness. This is good for 30 sessions of mud mask that can make you save up - that is not going to the spa anymore spending on those sessions of mud mask therapy. You can do it at home at you own convenience. Now let's tackle the formula inside. It was easy to squeeze out and its very smooth to touch and easy to apply. I applied a thin layer onto my face and felt a tingling like my skin was on fire that was over under 2 minutes. I'm not bothered by that because I didn't have rash or irritation afterwards even if I have sensitive skin. It just felt that the formula is working on my face. After more than 20 minutes, I washed it off with lukewarm water and pat dry with a towel. My skin felt really really smooth to touch and looks very bright and radiant! I do wish I have their toner and moisturizer to follow with to see more wonderful results.

Buy it here on Amazon or Cleopatra's Choice.

Museum of Art + LACMA Bonus Pictures

What I'm wearing: Peter Pilotto for Target dress (blogged here), Target necklace, Jewelmint rings, Nila Anthony from Sole Society mini tote purse and I.N.C. shoes similar here.

What he's wearing: Island Republic shirt (Steinmart review here), Izod pants similar here and Converse sneakers similar here.

Greetings from the sunny Los Angeles especially from the Los Angeles County Museum of Art where the finest art pieces could be found and every corner is a pretty place to take pictures with. This is the last day of our celebration and we only dedicated half of the day into musing and inspecting the beautiful pieces of arts from paintings to sculptures and modern art exhibitions. We know it wasn't really enough and we decided to just take the time to look at each and every painting and just continue next time. I can say I had a good time reconnecting with the history - I used to see them in books, encyclopedias, but to see them in real life is an awe-inspiring experience. My favorite paintings are those of Rembrandt, Renoir and Monet. 

For my outfit, I planned to be artistic by leaving it into Peter Pilotto's hands. This Peter Pilotto for Target dress I'm wearing was on sale at Target so I immediately grabbed it along with others! Can't miss a limited Target collaboration fashion piece, you know. I then matched it with my Sole Society mini tote from Nila Anthony. It was perfect for toting around with its two straps for the wrist and for the shoulders. With the red theme going on already in my dress and bag, I paired it with my Jewelmint rose gold ring stack to finish it off along with the Target statement necklace in black to bring contrast against my printed dress. 

For hubby's ensemble, he opted for a Hawaiian themed shirt since it was hot that day and he's always bothered when certain types of fabrics cling onto him. It was the perfect shirt for him because it was breezy and it was comfortable, and of course, we bought it at his favorite store at the moment, Steinmart. Even thought it is just spring, here in Southern California, it is already feeling like summer and we love it!
