What's Oil Pulling?

Seriously, Wtf is Oil Pulling? 

So, You've probably heard of this new trend called "oil pulling." Which is endorsed by celebs the likes of Shailene Woodley and Gwyneth Paltrow. If you're anything like me then you're probably wondering what exactly this is because it doesn't sound pleasant. I'm willing to try anything once and if it is supposed to improve my health i'll give it a shot. 

Things to know:  
  • Oil Pulling is quite simply swishing water in your mouth. 
  • You have to gargle for at least 20 minutes. 
  • You need one tablespoon of pure oil like sesame or coconut oil. 
  • It is supposed to whiten your teeth, clear up your skin, give you better breath, and relief from migraines. 
  • It is advised you do it in the morning after brushing your teeth. 

The verdict: 
After trying this once I don't think I would do it again!  20 minutes of gargling oil felt like an eternity and it made me want to gag. Thumbs down to this latest beauty trend! 

Have you tried it? What are your thoughts?

Valentines Day Outfit Inspo

So, Valentine's Day is tomorrow and I'm a little on the fence about it. The part of me that is crazy for any holiday wants to dress in theme and do everything romance related and the other part of me is saying "fuck Valentine's Day." haha. I haven't decided how I feel about it just yet and all the articles i've seen on blogs about "How to deal with Spending Vday Alone" are pretty awful and depressing... Uh, I don't think you need to rub it in a single gal's face anymore... haha.

Anyway, for those of you gals with Vday Plans I hope you have a wonderful evening and a great weekend.

Here's my take on the Vday Date outfit

Easy Like Sunday Morning

I've come to the the conclusion that there should be a day in between Saturday and Sunday and that Sunday's are strictly meant for NetFlix Binging and brunch! haha.

Can you guess how I spend my Sunday? 

It's been a brisk 70 degrees all week so I kept my weekend attire simple and casual. I paired my favorite Aldo Boots with a cotton striped tank and a denim jacket for Sunday Brunch. 

I hope you all have a wonderful week. I'll be catching up on the newest episodes of Girls. 

Catch you later! 


Xox,

Favorite Leather Jacket

So, I had been completely lusting over this Zara Leather Jacket for months and finally got it as a gift. I love the quilted detailing and the zippers on the sleeves that make it look much more expensive than it is.
It's a great buy for any budget and is completely wearable with almost any outfit.

I'm a complete minimalist so I stick to the basics.

Hope you have a great rest of the week
Xox,

Winter Black and White

Hope you're all having a wonderful week and not having as hard a time as I am adjusting to the holidays officially ending. I have a hard time moving on and I just can't let go! haha. 

Anyway, although I love color and love to encorporate it into my wardbrobe there is something so fool-proof about sticking to a black and white palette. It's classic and simple and a few touches of pattern or color is all you need to stand out!
