I don't know about you but when the seasons start to change, my skin goes haywire. I suffer with everything from excessive dryness to irritation, to hives to breakouts. This is usually when I realize I need to change up my skincare and to adjust to the new temperatures New York is sporting.
I discovered some new products that have really been helping calm my skin during the transition.
This eye cream de-puffs my eyes and helps me to look wide awake despite my allergies, while this eye cream moisturizes my eye area overnight as I sleep.
This toner is one of my favorite new products. It evens my skin tone and gives me a glow I don't always have. I love that it's a gel too!
This serum I use every morning and it plumps my skin and takes away the fine lines that plague me more than they should.
If I have an event I use this Glamglow mask two nights before, and then this argan oil directly after to soothe my skin. The next day I use this overnight cream and it plumps my skin that much more.
What are some of your favorite skincare products? I'm always looking for great new finds!

I mentioned on Instagram that this upcoming weekend I am, begrudgingly going to a barbecue. I know it likely seems strange, but as an introvert through and through, these types of events aren't always enjoyable. Small talk is draining (hashtag introvertsunite) and for someone like me, there isn't much to eat (hashtag mepaleo). Put that all together and I am already wishing I were staying home.
That said, it is a good excuse to wear a cute outfit, and I tend to opt for a cute top and some jeans. I've rounded up my bbq favorites and hope you will spend your weekend doing something you truly love.

I ordered this top last night and I love the polka dots. It could be on the dressier side, but with a casualespadrille or wedge it will be bbq ready.
This top should be coming this week and I am more than obsessed with it. It screams summer and backyard holiday party.
This top is a great way to elevate a basic white tee and you can wear it with sleek skinny jeans or a baggier boyfriend style.
This and this are my two favorite peasant tops of the moment and I promise you need them both.
Add a straw tote to any of these tops and you are ready for any summer get-together!
I did some shopping this week so I'm going to jump right in and get to it. Instagram has been the bane of my existence this week, so I tried to focus more on other things like shopping and adding new pieces to the wardrobe.
On a daily basis, I work hard to distract myself away from anything causing me grief and I tend to do that by submerging myself in something else entirely. I call it the Quick Switch. Whether it's working out, reading, school work or shopping, I focus on that to give myself some time to manage my other feelings.
So on to my favorite purchases of the week!
I purchased this new toner and I am so excited to try it! I will report back next week! (use code SUNSETS20 for 20% off)
I also recently found out that one of my favorite acne gels is now available without a prescription. Best. News. Ever. I've been using it for years!
This is my favorite cami of the moment, the flowers are to die for.
I am obsessed with these $68 jeans but I am crestfallen because they are way big. Definitely size down but snag them!
I ordered these espadrilles and I am excited to see them in person!
These shoes came this week and in the most predictable manor, they were as great as everyone is saying they are.
I ordered this floral blouse because the subtle pattern is my go-to this season.
What do you do to cope with stress?
PS- Keep an eye out tomorrow morning for a bonus post!

If I had to name one top from last season that was my favorite, it'd be this one. It's back this year and it now comes in my FAVORITE color! (It's $38!) This cardigan is a must-have too - yes I have it in a bunch of colors too.
A special thanks to this cami for brightening my morning... obsessed with how it looks with these olive skinnies too! Sizing: I sized down on the cami.
This top is coming to Must-Have Monday tomorrow along with my fabulous five in a few different categories. This top is under $50 and I have a few colors. I also linked a similar tote that keeps selling out!
This is the $35 peasant top I was raving about the other day! It's back in stock and I can't believe it comes in the my favorite neutral. I love it paired with these shoes (size down half a size)
The comfiest, coziest sweatshirt now comes in stripes? I couldn't resist it. I love the sleeves too. I stayed TTS. I'm wearing it off the shoulder but it doesn't have to be.
The embroidery on this $38 top is everything. It comes in a few colors and is so soft! These shorts are also amazing and are under $60. Size down half a size in these shoes. They are super comfortable and look great with everything from jeans to a dress.
