Jen Huang

I really love Jen Huang’s Instagram feed, her pictures are refreshingly simple and elegant. The colors are all so light and delicate; it gives me the feeling of purity, each image makes me feel like I can smell fresh sweet air.
Absolutely perfect for family and wedding photographs. Or, as my sister said, “I want her to photograph my life and make it look that good”.

Time to Relax

It finally feels like summer here! The warm season is a great time to slow down a bit, lounge around, and relax. I’m hoping something like this can be in my near future.

Here are a few of my favorite lounge and sleep items…

1. Cami with matching bottoms by OhhhLuLu
2. want to throw this on over everything by bymomma190
3. this robe (might also wear during the day..? : ) by ktjean
5. Been obsessed with these little sets from Jcrew.
6. this bralette by KateXTee
8. romper by DW Designs

9. I always splash a little of this musk on before bed, it smells so fresh to me.

Love this shop (not pictured) everything is so light and summery. I have and love this super soft set (not pictured) from Victoria’s Secret.

I also keep a little dish on my nightstand with some baking soda, every few days I sprinkle on some lavender and eucalyptus essential oils, (the baking soda acts as a base, so the oils aren’t evaporated immediately). It smells so nice.Jcrew’s scout chino (all winter also) are my absolute favorite lounge pants. I always put them on at night (post work clothes, pre pajamas). They don’t seem to have them right now, but they do have a lot of nice lounge-y pants.relax and sleep well!

Products!

Products I love and use allllll the time – I love trying new products, and I try tons. This list of products are the ones that have stuck, that I buy and buy again.

 

GSB-PRODUCTS-_-BLOG

Caudalie Divine Oil – Gives an amazing glow post-shower, and I’m addicted to the scent.
South of France Climbing Rose soap – Smells so nice, with all natural ingredients. My fave.
Kiehl’s Scrub – I only use it once a week, usually on sundays for a fresh start to the week
Kiehl’s Musk Oil – I use this oil all summer in place of a daily perfume. I also always splash a little on when I shower at night, makes me feel fresh before bed. The scent of this musk reminds of Johnson’s baby shampoo (..?), so it gives me the childhood memories of squeaky clean baths.
Jurlique Balancing Day Care Cream –
I used to always try new face creams until I found this one. Its so thick (in a good way) and smells amazing.
Olive Oil – for removing eye makeup
Rose Massage Oil – for light moisture days
Shikai Borage Therapy Advanced Formula Lotion – for dead of winter/intense moisture needed days, this is the only thing that works for me.
100% Pure Jasmine Green Tea Cleanser at night (I only use water in the morning).
Clarisonic Mia – for daily exfoliation
Burt’s Bees Mango Butter Lip Balm – I’ve probably gone through thousands of tubes of this stuff. It’s just the right texture, and a light scent that I don’t feel like I’m eating when I put it on.
Night Cream – Ole Hendriksen Truth Creme – I always notice a difference when I use a vitamin C packed cream; it really brightens instantly.
