Beauty DIY:
Citrus Body Scrub


Badgley Mischka swimsuit / Forever 21 cover-up

You can get smooth, silky skin in less than 15 minutes! Today's beauty D.I.Y. is a citrus body scrub that will leave your skin glowing! This scrub will help remove dead skin cells, fade dark spots, and brighten dull skin. Keep in mind, that the lemon ingredients will increase your skin's sensitivity to the sun. So please make sure you wait a few days before sun exposure!  Enjoy!!

Supplies you will need: 1 lime, 1 orange, 1 lemon, a mixing bowl, a spoon, measuring spoons, measuring cups, knife, a grater, a cutting board, Lemon Eucalyptus essential oil, grapeseed oil, fine sea salt, and a glass jar.
 
Step 1: Combine the zest of 1/2 a lime and 1/2 a lemon in a mixing bowl.
 
Step 2: Add 1 cup of sea salt.
 
Step 3: Add 1/4 cup of grapeseed oil.
 
Step 4: Mix the ingredients together with a spoon.
 
Step 5: Add the zest of 1/2 an orange and a few drops of Eucalyptus Lemon oil. Mix the ingredients together thoroughly and store the scrub in a glass jar.

How to use your citrus body scrub: During your shower or bath, apply the scrub on your arms and legs in a circular motion. Rinse well and refrigerate the scrub when you are finished.

Speak Volumes

Alexander Wang x H&M top / Alexander Wang skirt / Tibi boots

In November, I managed to score some amazing pieces from the Alexander Wang x H&M collection! One of my favorite things about fashion is playing with different shapes and silhouettes. For a balanced contrast, I paired an Alexander Wang x H&M dolman top with a slim-fitted, asymmetrical skirt.  Tibi's "Piper" ankle boots was worn to complete this edgy ensemble!

DIY:
The Perfect Ripped Knee Jeans


Step 1: Wear on an old pair of jeans.
Step 2: Mark a horizontal line above each knee cap with white chalk.


Step 3.  Roll up a magazine and place it on the inside leg of the jean. Make sure it is positioned underneath the chalk's marking.


Step 4: Make a slit with the razor.


Step 5: Continue making the slit all the way across the knee area. Be careful to not cross the main side hem.


Step 6: Fold the slit upward(half an inch) and trim off the excess with a pair of scissors. Pull on the frays and throw the jeans in the washing machine for a distressed look.


Finish! You now have a pair of edgy, ripped knee denim!
