What I Think- The iPhone 6

iphone 6

 Today I’d like to share with you all my take on the latest version of the Apple phone-the iPhone 6. Recently I was due for an model upgrade on my phone plan, and I chose this model after much hemming and hawing! I like having an iPhone over a different brand because I work from an Apple computer, and I like being able to sync my music and photos between the two-it makes things very simple when taking photos on my iPhone that I want to use on the blog. That’s another reason I chose this model, because it’s got a great camera on it for a cell phone, and I can’t seem to stay away from Instagram no matter how hard I try!

I wasn’t expecting to like this phone very much because it’s so much larger than my last one. I’m a fan of smaller ones, because it’s really hard to get these giant phones into the back pockets of my jeans! But I haven’t really minded the extra size on this. It definitely has a much longer battery life than my last one, and that’s always a plus.

It’s so sleek and pretty, I can’t bring myself to put it is a case yet! Although I probably should soon, I’m a little clumsier with my electronics than I’d like to think 🙂 When I do finally get around to getting a case for it, here are my top picks! If any of you have this phone as well, please let me know what you’ve found works well on it! All of these cases are also available for other models and brands of phones.

My Dresslink Wishlist

Happy Wednesday, everyone! I hope everyone’s week is going well so far. I’ve been exhausted trying to keep on top of work, social outings, and everything else. I’ve been rewarding myself for getting through the days with a lot of online shopping! 😉 I’ve been testing out some new retailers that aren’t my usual go-tos. It’s always good to look around and see what other options are out there instead of getting stuck in a style rut!

By now, everyone’s probably seen links to this new clothing website cropping up on various blogging feeds. If you’ve never heard of Dresslink, here’s the basics-it’s a Chinese wholesale clothing retailer, which means they can sell clothes very cheaply! They have some really cute designs and some awesome on-trend pieces that I’d love to try out! Here’s my wishlist!

Of course, with wholesale clothing you run the risk of the quality being poorer than expected, but with such great prices I think that risk is a fair tradeoff! Nothing on the wishlist costs over $8-how crazy is that? I’m in love with all of these pieces, especially that black romper and the black fringe skirt. Dresslink also has an insane amount of pieces-there truly is something for everyone! You can check out the website by clicking on the picture below!

St Ives Apricot Scrub Review

stives1

This is just the first in a new series I’ll be doing reviewing products that are cult favorites. I saw this travel size version of the St. Ives Apricot Face Scrub and knew I had to test it out! Buying travel size versions of products is a great way to test out things you’re unsure about purchasing-that way if you don’t like it, you’re paying only a fraction of the real price. I grabbed this travel size at CVS. You can get the travel size here and the full size here!

This is a cult favorite for a reason! I had my doubts at first, due to hearing some mixed reviews of it, but it’s amazing. After one application, my skin both looks and feels softer and smoother. It removed dry skin, evened out my skin tone, and (warning: icky) even got rid of some tiny blackheads. The formula is abrasive so this is definitely not something you should use every day. The tube recommends three to four times a week, but that sounds really excessive to me; any exfoliator is going to be a little hard on your skin, and frequent usage is generally not recommended. Since I have fairly sensitive skin, I’ll probably only be using it once every couple weeks. If you’re still not quite convinced about this product, consider grabbing the smaller size next time you’re in the drugstore! At only $1.49, it really can’t be beat.

What do you think? Have you tried this product before? What’s your opinion on exfoliation? Let me know what you think! Thanks for stopping by!
