When it comes to my face, I'm lucky enough to say that my biggest issue is dry skin. Thankfully, my awkward phase in middle school didn't consist of zits and acne. But I didn't hit the skin jackpot, unfortunately, because I suffer from eczema on my body. Sure, it's not a horrible case and can barely be seen, but the itchy, dry skin is anything but pleasant. You can't have it all, right?

When I moved to Chicago, my itchy skin got worse. I've always wanted to stay away from steroids, and was determined to find something over the counter to help. When my dermatologist introduced me to Cetaphil RestoraDerm Eczema Calming Body Moisturizer, I knew I found what I was looking for! It has made a huge difference in my skin, making my dryness manageable. It lasts all day long, and the best part is, it doesn't feel like I'm wearing a heavy lotion. I use it throughout the year, no matter how hot it is outside, and I am so happy to find something that finally works. Even if you don't suffer from eczema, it's a great lotion to pick up.

What's your favorite moisturizer?

Do you ever come across a designer and get totally lost in their creations? Where you want to live in world completely designed by them? That's what happened when I came across Samantha Sleeper, a handmade bridal gown designer that perfects each stitching. I stumbled across Samantha Sleeper on Instagram (trust me, you'll want to follow), and immediately got lost in the whimsical, fantasy land that the designer's gowns originate from. I would gladly spend eternity in one of these frocks!

You can check out more of these beautiful creations online here.

While everyone is scrounging for leftovers and paying inflated prices on eBay, we've got a limited time collection that is so worth a fight (even though that will hopefully not be necessary).

They're items that you can incorporate into your work wear, and easily transition for a nighttime look. And they're great for transitioning from spring to summer!

LVX is hands down, one of my favorite polish brands, so when I hear they're doing 20% off your entire order, you know I have jump at that chance. Let's be real, you don't actually need a reason to get new nail colors, but if you need a reason justify it - it's springtime! I had a little fun recently with past season favorites, but I can't wait to get my hands on the latest collection. Using coupon code INSTA20, of course! (Ends Wednesday, April 22nd.)
