From the Office to Happy Hour

Hello my YCF friends!

Here is an easy way you can change your office look and take it right to happy hour. I changed the accessories, purse and shoes and was ready to enjoy my night out.

I don't wear arm candy for the office I usually style my looks with only necklaces

When I know I will be walking a lot at the office I wear flats

A necklace can dress up any look , this one is perfect for the office 

I love the back of this dress, it also has a zipper on the side and the length is perfect

TJ Maxx dress (old) and shoes (similar)
J Crew factory necklace (similar)

Now lets see the difference!!

I pulled my hair up on one side

Added bangles and a ring for some sparkle

Changed to a shinny rhinestones necklace 

Added a pop of color with my shoes

and ditched the tote bag for a black clutch

Off to have fun!

TJ Maxx dress (old)
Zara heels (also love)
Forever 21 necklace (also love) and bracelets (here)
Nordstrom ring (also love)
Payless Shoes clutch (similar)

I would love to know how you transition your office looks to happy hour?

Thanks for stopping by!

Denim + Peplum

Happy Sunday!

It was a busy weekend here at YCF! filled with many activities including dinner with my coworkers on Friday, a movie date with the husband on Saturday, and an amazing blogger's brunch today. At the brunch I met four wonderful ladies and we shared some laughs, mimosas and of course blog information. I wanted to be comfortable so I wore jeans, a peplum top, flats and finished the look with my favorite red lip.

Please take a moment and checkout my fellow blogger's sites:

Night Skin Care Routine

Here are some of my favorites facial products that I am using right now. As you can see the majority are from the drugstores. Because I have combination skin and prone to acne I have tried almost everything out there. Right now these are a few of my favorites and the ones that work well for me during the summer.

 The first thing I do is take my makeup off with this old time favorite. Ponds Cold cream it deep cleans and removes all my makeup (even waterproof mascara) without leaving my skin greasy.

Then, I remove the Pond's cream with this Aveeno Ultra Calming cleansing wipes. 

I finished removing everything by washing my face with the Aveeno Ultra Calming foaming cleanser. My skin tends to get red, but I have noticed a huge difference since I started washing my face with this product. It definately leaves it soft without over drying it.

If there is any mascara left I wipe it off with the L'oreal eye makeup remover. I used to buy more expensive ones, but this one does a great job. It is oil free and does not hurt my eyes.

After all that, I use this alcohol free toner also from L'oreal. It leaves my skin soft and it doesn't over dry it.

The only thing I expend money on are moisturizers, this one is from BareMinerals. It softens all the lines and in the morning my skin is looking softer, not oily and looking younger. I even apply this one under my eyes.

And for during the day...

I apply Anew Rejuvenate from Avon as my moisturizer. I also use Anew for under my eyes.

Hope you have an amazing weekend!
