Pretty Prints

Recently I got the change to try another dress from eshakti. I've gotten dresses from them in the past and love how everything is customizable. From the length to the style, to a custom fit-you can really build the perfect dress, just for you. I chose this Georgettee Dress because I adored the print! I've gotten rid of a lot of clothes from my closet and recently realized that of the dresses I still own, all but two are really only spring/summer dresses. Even though I don't wear dresses a ton once the temperatures  drop, I like to wear them occasionally. 

The fit on this dress is perfect! I didn't own a midi length dress, so I took a change and really like it here! I had meant to adjust the neckline, as the original style is too low for my taste, but accidentally didn't check the right box, so I styled it with a cami underneath and think that works fine. I wore my Franco Sarto heels, they are no longer available, but these heels from Old Navy are similar in style and have a great price point. I also kept it a bit casual with my denim jacket. I'd like to wear a tan cardigan with it too, but mine bit the dust and I haven't been able to find a replacement yet. Whomp, whomp.

Once again, by experience with eshakti has been great. I love the dress and am looking forward to getting a lot of use out of it!

Maple Holistics

I shared with you all last month some new products I'd gotten to try from Maple Holistics and they've sent me a few new things to try! First off, I tried this Opulence Under Eye Cream. Being I'm nearly 40 I've become a bit more aware of the aging around the eyes. I've used a few other creams, but was excited to give this one a try. It promises to reduce wrinkles and bags as well as brighten the eye area. I've used it for a few weeks and while I can't attest to it's impact on wrinkles, I do feel like my eyes look brighter and more awake. It's a light cream and doesn't take much, so I think this jar will last for a long time. I'm excited to see the long term results!
