Outfit Post / Review / Giveaway: Ready For My Close Up and Obiqo Skincare

When I turned 30 last year (that still feels weird to type/say out loud) I began to really accept the fact that I'm aging.  I can no longer spend my summers baking in the sun without sunscreen (I shouldn't have done it in the first place) and I need to take some action to help remedy the damage I've already done.  I tried a couple different night creams and eye creams, but none had really impressed me.  I have really sensitive skin and a lot of time the skin under my eyes would burn and tingle from my drug store eye cream and I even would wake up with puffy eyes.  I was super excited to be approached by Obiqosea-inspired skincare range that combines "nutrient-rich sea kelp from New Zealand’s pristine waters and the powerful anti-oxidant properties of French organic sea lavender".  I love the idea of natural ingredients, not to mention, the products are derived from sustainable sources.  The Restoring Night Cream and Smoothing Eye Cream arrived in pretty packaging and the subtle scents were really lovely.  I have been using both for a couple months now and my skin definitely feels much more hydrated.  The creams feel good going on (no burning!) and gives an immediate dewy look.  I love that it takes just a small dab to cover your face--which means an already affordable product will last quite a while.  I'm hoping with continued use, those fine lines will slow down their creeping!

It's a great feeling to feel good about your skin.  I love that I can ease up on the makeup for the summer.  Just throw on a pretty sundress and I'm out the door.  The details on this vintage dotted swiss dress (that neckline/collar!) are enough to make it stand out on its own.  Also, I'm big fan of going bare foot when it's hot enough outside, which is why there aren't any full length shots. ; )

Hope you all had a wonderful weekend--and FIRST OFFICIAL DAY OF SUMMER! Yay!

Summer Flea Market Style

One of my favorite things to do all the time, but especially in summer, is visit outdoor markets. I love spending the day outside, treasure hunting and hanging out, finding goodies for the shop (and myself!).

With outdoor markets, it's important to dress for comfort...but of course you wanna look great too (in case someone's there to snap your photo!). A great pair of Levi's 501 shorts is the perfect building block for your summer wardrobe. Just add vintage for the perfect comfortable + cool flea market look!

I have also been pinning some of my favorite summer flea market looks on Pinterest, as well as tips, tricks, and images from Flea Markets all over the US! Tons of inspiration all in one pretty place.

Follow Manda And's board Summer Flea Market Style on Pinterest.

Wishing you all a happy, healthy summer (finally!)...and good luck on the hunt at your favorite outdoor markets!

Makers We Love: Little Knitty Things

Jayme is a visual artist. Amanda is a writer. We love curating vintage, taking photos and making our blogs/lives into creative places. We bond with people who want the same thing--to make a living doing what they love.

Our beautiful friend, Mel Sonier (at left, in one of her own creations!), has an amazing Etsy shop called Little Knitty Things, and she generously sent my girls a few adorable pieces. (I am mostly using this blog post as an opportunity to show how darn cute my girls are, but...) Mel makes hats for kids of all ages, as well as amazing pompom garlands and wall hangings (+ more!). If you're in New York, you might want to check her out at some local markets as well!

Aurora in a bright knit cap, hamming it up as usual.

How amazing are these colors? Mel also sent us a beautiful garland that's hanging in the girls' room (which gets bad light and is always a mess, hence the lack of photos).

Thanks, Mel, for the beautiful things...everyone go check out her shop and get yourself and/or your kiddos some handmade goodness!
