SIDESMILE STYLE SHEET MASK ROUND UP-3

My latest Skincare Obsession? Sheet Masks! These bad boys are great for everything from brightening to hydrating, and can even reduce pore size. They also are super easy for travel, I’ve even been known to wear them on airplanes:) This Korean skincare staple is by no means a new trend, but I still wanted to share some of my favorites for every skin type and budget with you guys. Make sure to comment with y’all favorites – I always love trying new ones!

Karuna Sheet Mask Review

Clarifying Masks

KARUNA clarifying face mask – $8

Sometimes I’m a bad girl and sleep in my makeup, but luckily this mask helps clear up my pores in a jiffy. Made out of 100 percent natural wood-pulp fiber, allowing pores to fully absorb essential nutrients and nourishing ingredients for ultimate hydration. It calms the skin by reducing redness and blemishes for a clear complexion. Great for acne-prone skin, this oil-free formula contains a powerful blend of hyaluronic acid and peptides to renew, aloe vera and chamomile to hydrate, and Chinese licorice and vitamin B to detoxify.

YES TO TOMATOS charcoal face mask – $3.29

When my skin is having a hormonal freak out – this mask helps get it back on track. Formulated with charcoal to detoxify and clean pores, the single-use Yes To Tomatoes Detoxifying Charcoal Paper Mask is perfect for those times when your skin needs a serious deep cleaning.

SIDESMILE STYLE HYDRATING SHEET MASK REVIEW

Hydrating Masks

TONY MOLY wonder water mask sheet – $4

This one of my go to masks for long plane flights. Hydrates dry skin by quenching skin’s thirst through its bamboo sap ingredient, which provides abundant moisture.

 KARUNA hydrating face mask – $8

I love this mask in the the winter time. The refreshing, oil-free formula contains a powerful blend of hyaluronic acid and peptides to renew, aloe vera and chamomile to hydrate, and Chinese licorice and vitamin B to detoxify.

SIDESMILE STYLE ANTI AGING SHEET MASK REVIEW

Pore Minimizing Masks

ERNO LASZLO white marble sheet mask – $80 for 6

I love this mask when my skin is looking dull and haggard. Gentle on skin, yet powerfully brightening, the weekly mask maintains and supports natural melanin production while blocking harmful oxidation that can darken, dull, and age skin. Immediately clarifying, skin looks brighter, younger, glowing.

7 WONDERS himalayan camellia pore minimizing mask – $5.99

Enriched with Himalayan camellia flower oil, this bio-cellulose mask does wonders for our congested skin. A blend of natural plant extracts, including coconut, licorice and sugar maple, minimizes pores, soothes irritated skin, and reduces the appearance of fine lines and discoloration.

SIDESMILE STYLE REDNESS REDUCING SOOTHING SHEET MASKS REVIEW

Soothing Masks

YES TO COTTON comforting paper mask – $3.29

Sometimes when my skin is being extra sensitive, I turn to this mask. The lightweight, 100% Cotton paper mask features a 95% natural formula that is also rich in antioxidants and Aloe that help hydrate and protect skin while leaving it naturally radiant.

JOANNA VARGASS eurphoria mask – $75 for 5

This mask is great when I’ve over done it with other treatments, sun exposure, or slept in my makeup. This is an anti-redness treatment mask designed to deeply hydrate and instantly soothe.  The power is in the ingredients: Aloe vera, chamomile, and allantoin soothe, heal, and moisturize. Sodium hyaluronate and vitamin B5 hydrate, repair, and create fullness. Tremella fuciformis sporocarp extract is a jelly-like free radical scavenger with powerful antioxidant and water-retention properties.

SIDESMILE STYLE SKIN REPAIR SHEET MASKS

Repair Masks

NERD skin repair master mask – $56 for 3

NERD uses technology similar to treating burn victims to deliver deep penetration of serums. I’m not that up on science, all I know is how plump and smooth my skin looks afterward.

ESTEE LAUDER advanced night repair mask – $25

Again I’m not a scientist so most of this is lost on me, but the proof is in the pudding. I love using this mask before a big event like a wedding or a date night. The high-performance foil-backed sheet mask creates a protective barrier, allowing potent technologies to penetrate fast into skin’s surface and helping to lock in moisture. Featuring two times hyaluronic acid, each treatment delivers a surge of liquid revitalization—immersing skin in a double dose of Advanced Night Repair Serum’s powerful moisture magnet. It also includes the proven ChronoluxCB™ technologies for an infusion of hydration.

Anyone who has ever been out do a bar with me knows that my drink of choice is tequila. Rather than ordering a margarita over and over again, I’ve started mixing it up with a tequila and grapefruit aka a Paloma. The recipe is super simple so it won’t confound the bartender!

-Grapefruit Juice
-Seltzer
-A dab of Simple syrup

Garnish with a lime wedge.

Viola a super easy cocktail that isn’t a million calories!

SIDESMILE STYLE EAU PALM BEACH HOTEL REVIEW-20

At the beginning of the summer Christian and I slipped out of Miami for a quick weekend getaway up to The Eau Palm Beach. I’d been dying over all of the gorgeous images I’d seen of the property on Instagram and couldn’t wait to shoot a bunch of content for the blog. Well wouldn’t you know that it rained the ENTIRE weekend?! Initially I was very bummed because it’s not every day I get to be in such a luxe setting, and I always like to try and get content and photos to share with you guys.

However, the rain forced me to not focus on work and actually enjoy this relaxing weekend with my boyfriend. We made the best out of the weather and camped out under one of the beach cabanas, ordered an amazing lunch and drank spicy watermelon margs to our hearts content. The rest of the time we holed up with Netflix + room service and were just a pair of no name slobs. Honestly it was one of the more fun trips we’ve been on together. If we were going at the beach stuck in a hotel while it downpours outside,  it might as well be one designed by Jonathan Adler, with a room service menu that offers Filet Mignon, and hands down the friendliest staff of any hotel I’ve ever stayed at.

The poolside restuarant Breeze Ocean Kitchen was so yummy! You can have food delivered directly to the bungalows and more importantly drinks! At one point it was raining so hard we had to close the curtains to keep the water out. Our poor waitress kept running out to us with a towel over her head. We had the best time though, it felt like it was  just us snuggled up in our own little fort…but it literally was just us because no one else was crazy enough to hang out by the beach during a storm all day haha.

I’m obsessed with this little travel pouch from PB Teen Emily & Merritt collection (which is SO cute btw). It’s waterproof which is perfect for a wet swimsuit after a day at the beach.

SIDESMILE STYLE EAU PALM BEACH HOTEL REVIEW-31

Even though it wound up being rainy all weekend, I still had all of my beach essentials with me. This Bare Republic sunscreen literally smells INSANELY good! I also love this Fekkai apes soleil hair treatment, which is my favorite to use after the pool.

Why be at the office when you can be at the ocean? True dat.

SIDESMILE STYLE EAU PALM BEACH HOTEL REVIEW-58So I was only able to shoot one outfit, so I couldn’t get all the content for instagram that I wanted to, so, soso what?

Probably the hardest part of blogging is work life balance. My life is quite literally my work, but when I don’t take the time to unplug they both inevitably suffer. It’s such a fine line between capturing content during trip for social media and actually being present in the moment experiencing it.  This is a lesson I have had to learn time and time again, and I’ll tell ya, it is still a struggle. Snapping out of my panic over the weather wasn’t easy, but once I did I had a perfectly lovely weekend with my boyfriend (and still managed to get enough photos for this recap post).ShopThePost

I wore this outfit a couple months ago on a trip to the Eau Palm Beach. I love the volume of this tiered dress – perfect for twirling haha! I love anytime I can accentuate just above my waist with a bow or a belt because I think it makes for a super flattering silhouette. This is the perfect beach or bbq dress and would actually be perfect for the upcoming Labor Day weekend. I personally will be poolside soaking up the last rays of summer – what do you guys have planned?ShopThePost
