This is a new product on the market for acne prone skin. Clinique is a raved about brand for skin care. My mom and my sister both love the Clinique moisturizer and makeup remover. I had a giftacard to Macy's from Christmas and I either wanted to use it toward a handbag or face product. I chose this cleansing gel because it sounded gentle and would work well with my new Clarisonic. So far I like it and I think it is helping my skin! Updates will come later as I continue to use it more.

2. Clarisonic Mia in Pink.... $40 (originally $99, used saved gift cards)
I bought this Clarisonic Mia ($99) after looking at several reviews, talking to friends, and talking to trusted employees at Sephora. On a whim, I used two of my Sephora giftcards with $35 and $25 to purchase this item for around $40! I liked the cute pink color and immediately went home to charge it for the required 24 hrs. I used it the next night and loved just how clean my face felt after. I used the Clinique gel on the spin head (I have the sensitive one) and pressed it on for a full minute. I only use this one to two times a week so far, to gradually get my skin used to it. I definitely like it as a deep exfoliator and time will tell if my skin adjusts well enough for me to use it more often! Updates will come after a few more tries. 

Have you seen most bloggers in super cool ripped at the knee jeans? That is all my Instagram feed is showing right now and I had huge envy of the look last week! I wanted to find my own version of the Top Shop jeans that I feel everyone owns, but the $70 price tag was not in the cards for me. These AEO jeggings fit incredibly well (I usually hate shopping for denim because I never have good luck!), and were on sale! Rips at the knees and all. Comfortable, stylish, and affordable? Major score! 

Yes, I got this lip gloss for 88 cents! CVS was having NYX products on sale in addition to coupons for $3 any NYX product. If you follow my Twitter you will see that I posted about this event the other day! I will try to do that more often because I love telling people what great deals are happening and when.This gorgeous light baby pink looks so nice as an every day spring color! I've worn it twice so far and the gloss goes on super smooth and does not feel drying at all.

5. Abercrombie Fringe Cardigan (similar)...$12 (sale from $78)
Cardigans are honestly so versatile. They can be thrown on over a tank top and jeans and instantly complete an outfit. This fringe one is in an oatmeal color that reminds me of summer. This style is super bohemian and is something I would definitely wear if I went to Coachella...sigh a girl can dream!

Happy Friday! What are you loving today?
