Glow Girl: Winter Skincare Routine

Hey mer-babes! It's been a moment since I did a skincare update so let's begin.  When I look back to where my skin was a year ago, I am in awe and so v proud of my face.  Obviously there are so many factors that play into your skin like stress, hormones, diet, etc...but I am v confident that my current skincare routine also plays a huge role.  If you live in the Chi you know it is dryyyyyy out here, but this is also one of the first years I haven't dealt with dry, flaky, skin.  My skin is g-l-o-wing babes, not trying to brag but like also I'm bragging.

Mermaid Eats: The Allis

The Allis is my go-to day-time destination.  Whether it’s breakfast, brunch, or lunch I know I can grab my favorite meal, like ever, and relax with a cup of tea.

Mermaid Eats: Bad Hunter

I have been a vegetarian for five or six years now and the thought of eating an animal no longer has any appeal to me.  BUT, I always had serious envy when I saw someone eat a burger.  I love veggie burgers but never felt like I was eating an actual burger, it’s just not the same.

LDN Hit List: Breakfast + Afternoon Tea at Sketch

Forget Disney World, Sketch is truly the happiest place on earth.  I'm a total sucker for an insta-famous destination and will do anything for the #content so Sketch was an absolute must on our London to-do Pinterest board.  On our first full day in London we were #blessed enough to have breakfast in the Parlor.

Get the London Look: Everything I Wore in London + Edinburgh

Hey merbabes! I'm back + better than ever.  Ok actually, right now I am seriously sick, but I have a feeling the whole better than ever thing will kick in in a few days.  London + Edinburgh were a serious whirlwind, I don't think I've ever laughed as much as I did in the last ten days.  As much as I want to take you through every single moment that made me giggle, lets get to why you're really here.

The London Looks.  I truly was killing it in London, if I do say so myself.

I needed a kick of inspiration to get me out of my early onset winter wardrobe rut (I mean its barely January, we've got a long way to go), and what better than a trip across the pond to give me the inspiration I've been looking for? Nothing, duh. Below I've rounded up my top five looks from my trip + found you all the pieces you need to recreate them for yourself!
