Frank Cacao Coffee Scrub

Frank's Body Cacao

I’m a huge advocate of exfoliation and I’ve talked about my favorite body scrub methods in my Scrub and Polish series. Naturally when I heard about Frank body scrubs and all the raving reviews I had to try it for myself. I chose the Cacao scrub because it’s supposed to be extra hydrating and as its name indicates has a delicious scent. The coffee scrub is gentle but very effective and gets rid of dead skin, flaking and bumps. Since it’s also packed with natural oils extracted from almonds and macadamia it leaves the skin super smooth.

Although I really liked using it, the truth is I wouldn’t purchase this scrub again. I was excited to try Frank Body after seeing an account on Instagram called Frank’s Little Black Book that shows amazing before and after photos of scars, stretch marks and other skin conditions that were drastically improved by this scrub. When I tried it on my old stretch marks they got a little red and irritated so I was too afraid to scrub them again. It did work great on my arms and legs but it left an oily residue after which I don’t like. There’s no doubt that it’s a great scrub but for my usage it’s just not worth the mess.

lI hope this helps, and if you’ve tried one of their scrubs I’d love to hear about your experience with it! Xo


Full Skirts

Redskirt 1Skirts are my favorite go-to statement pieces and I’m always searching for ones that have flare and really stand out. The minute I spotted this beautiful raspberry colored skirt I knew it would be the perfect piece for the coming season. The high-low hem and bow in the front are girly and playful. Because the skirt is full and has a train in the back, I wore a fitted top to give me a slim and feminine silhouette. I chose the caged front heels to balance the whole outfit together.

Lacing it up


I must confess that I’m definitely not ready for summer to be over, but I am very excited about this year’s fall fashion and trying out new trends. Lace and crochet have been favorites of mine over the summer, and it can definitely trickle over the coming month since we’re still in that stage where it’s no longer beach season but still not cold enough to be fall. You can pair a crochet dress or top with cute booties or wear a crochet skirt with a light sweater to give it a more autumn vibe. Follow the links to see some of my favorite lace items right now.
