    Beauty Spotlight: Bayeco

    For the last week I have switched up my usual beauty routine and added in two products from Bayeco’s innovative green tea range.  Bayeco operates with the mission to, “help women look beautiful from the outside and feel confident on the inside”. That mission statement really resonated with me. My skin is one of my biggest insecurities and most of the time my solution to breakouts and flareups is to cover it up with more makeup. One of the reasons I have started my beauty spotlight series is to share new products that I am discovering that help fix the problem instead of merely covering it up. Bayeco’s products were perfect for…

    From Beach to City in Juliet Robot

    Juliet Robot is a relatively new Korean shoe brand that is sure to stop you in your tracks with their unique styles. The designs are feminine with bold colors, and skillfully constructed with high quality materials. The silhouettes range from dainty to exaggerated. I instantly fell in love with the Voluminous Pink shoe from the premier collection. I paired the shoes with a simple White Ruffle Tie Dress to really let the color and oversized bows serve as the outfits focal point. I wore these shoes for a city outing in San Francisco and visited the cutest bakery. I paired them with this striped  Midi Jumpsuit . The shoes were very comfortable…

    Beauty Spotlight: Roses

    One of my all time favorite ingredients when it comes to beauty products is rose water. There are so many positive benefits to having rose water and extract in beauty products. Rose is a natural astringent with toning properties, it helps reduce redness, and it has anti-inflammatory abilities. I love applying rosewater to my face after I wash it in the morning to use as a light toner. Korean skin care brand Commleaf sells three of my favorite products, a rosewater mist, sleeping mask, and rose moisture pads. I started incorporating these products into my daily routine after coming home from Paris to really dry flaky skin. It seems like every…

    Paris Lookbook

    I am so excited to share some amazing brands that I had the chance to wear during my latest trip in Paris. When I started looking around and shopping for Paris I knew that I wanted to bring items that had a classic and feminine feel to them. These three brands exceeded my expectations! Joanie Clothing has a wide selection of apparel ranging from dresses to trousers. This brand has some stunning prints with a vintage flair. The collar detailing on this Zooey Swan Collar dress was adorable, and FYI its on sale now.  I loved how the colors and prints popped in photos. Sign up for their mailing list to…

    Museum of Ice Cream: San Francisco- An updated review

    UPDATE: This past month I was back at the Museum of Ice cream in San Francisco and noticed some MAJOR changes. They have added some more Ice Cream themed rooms and completely done away with a couple of OG’s. Never fear- the sprinkle pool is still there. The Banana  Swing alcove was still my favorite photo stop- thankfully that has stayed the same. New Room ALERT! The popsicle room is no more. I honestly prefer this new attraction ( to see the original room scroll below to my post from last year). The Circus Animal snack room made me feel nostalgic. I remember eating these by the handful as a…

    Rosé for the week

    I am a huge fan of unicorn hair colors and am always toying with the idea of dying my hair pink or purple. I went to Target to pick up  some wrapping paper and a gift card and ended up leaving with a cart full of nonessentials- the typical result of my shopping experiences there. The most interesting product I couldn’t wait to try was a shower spray that promised to give rose-gold hair that washed out after 2-3 shampoos. I was intrigued. Kristin Ess Rose Gold Temporary Tint did not fail to disappoint! This is an in-shower product that you use on damp hair and leave in for 1-2…

    One Top, Multiple Looks

    Follow my blog with Bloglovin Possibly the most used piece in my wardrobe at the moment is this colorful button up. This piece has been appearing on my Instagram in a variety of ways for the past month. It’s colorful, light weight and perfect for summer look books. A must have for any wardrobe is a unique print, or unexpectedly colorful button up. A non-basic button up is incredibly versatile, and has the ability to be reused and styled in multiple ways. This top served as the centerpiece for this rainbow look. I really wanted the decal on the shorts to pop without being overpowered, the primary colors in the top really did…

    Bold skirts +Basic tops = a Winning Combo

    As anyone who follows me on Instagram, in my @soundsdarling account, knows I love mixing prints. Lately for summer I have been relying heavily on a few basic tops paired with bold printed skirts or rompers. All of the looks below that are still available have been linked at the end of this post. I am OBSESSED with this Blondie top. The red-orange text really pulled together with the stripes on the skirt. As you can see from my next photo this skirt has been getting a lot of use. Its fully lined, but is light enough that its comfortable in this July heat. Same skirt, different shirt. There was…
