Earned It by The Weeknd // Batiste Wild Dry Shampoo // Voluspa 'Pink Citron' Maison Metallo Candle // Project Social T Textured Knit V-Neck Tee // Game of Thrones // Special K Protein Cinnamon Brown Sugar Crunch Cereal

Batiste Wild Dry Shampoo:

Voluspa 'Pink Citron' Maison Metallo Candle: This smells amazing and looks amazing in my room and I can tell it will be one I re-purchase for the apartment I'm prepping to move into in September. 

Project Social T Textured Knit V-Neck Tee: These are perfect light and easy summer t-shirts. Throw on a bralette, this tee, a pair of jean shorts, and you're good to go.

Game of Thrones: I began watching this at the beginning of May with my best friends and have been hooked ever since and I just finished last week! I was thankfully never spoiled before finishing

Her Campus Internship // Gabriellle's Graduation & London Announcement
If you didn't already know, I'm interning this summer at the Her Campus office in Boston. I just finished up my first month and couldn't be happier! I'm working under Katherine of Style Tab as a Blogger Network Management Intern and have gotten to work on a lot of great things so far and can't wait for what's to come over the next two months. Plus, I'm working alongside my friend Ingrid of smilingrid, a friend from school, and a friend from Harvard, in addition to all of the other interns who are great as well! Follow along with what I'm up to day-to-day on twitter and instagram.

Another huge event this month was obviously watching my sister graduate from high school. She makes me so proud to call her my little sister and I can't wait to see what she'll accomplish next at Pace University in the fall. Gabrielle and I have wanted to start traveling together for quite some time and had initially wanted to travel to the Bahamas this summer, but instead, I surprised her with a trip to London! It will be the first time in Europe for both of us and both of our second times traveling outside of the United States, and our first time traveling together. If you've been to London, I'd love to get some recommendations on what we should see and do while we're there.

Happy Friday friends, hope you had an awesome week and are looking forward to something exciting this weekend! I'm headed off to New York for a work trip with my family and packed lots of statement jewelry to accessorize some less exciting outfits. Tassel jewelry is so fun and all of these pieces are under $40.

What to Wear Where: Summer Wedding

Keepsake Dress // Touch In Sol Lip & Cheek Tint // Bea Millen Ring // Diane von Furstenberg Clutch

The start of the summer season also indicates the start of another season: wedding season. While initially, the sight of Save the Dates on your fridge might seem overwhelming, once you pick the perfect outfit and make the choice between salmon and chicken, everything seems to fall into place. Whether your wedding is calls for a more casual look, a beachy vibe, or evening formal, here are three different outfits that will have you turning heads.

Review: Josie Maran Argan Exfoliating Cleansing Powder

Josie Maran Argan Exfoliating Cleansing Powder ($40 for 2 oz.) is a gentle daily exfoliant infused with finely crushed Argan shells, rice powder, and several antibacterial and antioxidant-packed powerhouses. These active ingredients buff away dead skin, reduce the appearance of age spots and blemishes or blackheads, and even out your skin tone. It is recommended by the brand to use it as a spot treatment for blemishes, as an all over face mask or as a lip scrub.
The powder itself is fine and smells slightly citrusy, making it the perfect gentle morning exfoliant. I've only used it with water so far because I don't have a cleansing oil to work with it (water and cleansing oil are recommended for best results), and so far I like what it's done. As someone who's constantly trying out new skincare products, it's often difficult to determine long-term results, but immediate and short-term are much easier. My skin definitely appears brighter and glows just a bit more after exfoliating with this. If you're interested in trying an exfoliator outside the normal realm, give this one a shot.

I was given this for consideration from Josie Maran but am not being influenced by any opinions but my own.
