Long time no blog

So I keep saying that I am going to do all these great posts and blogs and blah, blah, blah… well here I am, like, 10 months later and I have failed miserably. I hang my head in shame.

In all honesty, life has just gotten crazy, and for me personally, I am very much the kind of person that I need to be in the right head space in order to be creative, and I just haven’t been there as of late. But don’t fret my dears, because I am blogging again (one blog post counts, right?!) and also working on a really cool new project that is currently in the beginning stages of creation, but it is definitely getting my creative juices flowing again.

Oh and because I am here, and why they heck not! I wanted to share a really cool body scrub recipe that I kinda made up/was inspired by a certain Instagram famous body scrub, cough *franks*.

So a little back story, I love to exfoliate. I am OBSESSED with it actually. To the point that friends by me soap with extreme exfoliation bits in them and I may or may not exfoliate to the point of scraping up my skin… Relax… it was one time, I learned my lesson.

Back on track, so on InstaG I kept seeing all those cute skinny, Aussie, girls with glowing skin and coffee grounds on them claiming to have the softest skin ever. So naturally, I was very intrigued. I did some googling and what not and came across Frank’s Body Scrub, and it looked pretty cool. Then i started to look at the ingredients and realized that I had quite a few of them and decided to try it out on my own. The results, were pretty good if you ask me. It was super easy and after using it, my skin was glowing and so soft. I was and am hooked on phonics with this stuff.

Like I said, it is super easy to make. All you need are some coffee grounds (I use the old ones from my morning coffee), coconut oil, shea butter (optional), sea salt, brown sugar, and an essential oil of your choosing (I chose grapefruit).

To make;

  1. Mix shea butter and coconut oil , approximately 2 cups of each, until they became soft
  2. Then add in approx 2 cups of coffee grounds, mix until well incorporated,
  3. Add in 1/4 cup of sea salt and 1/4 cup brown sugar
  4. Then add in 7 or so drops of grapefruit essential oil.

I mixed these all together for about 1 minute until it became fluffy and then I was done. I’ve kept it stored in an old mason jar in my bathroom for about 1 week and it is still going strong.

Seriously, so easy and inexpensive. My skin is so invigorated and soft, I didn’t even have to put on lotion afterwards (although, I did just a little because I am crazy about soft skin!).

Thanks for stopping by Fashionistas, have a great Tuesday 🙂

There’s a new slip-on in town

image

Behold, my newest bebe. My brand new Windsor Smith, suede slip on shoe. The moment I laid eyes on them I knew they had to be mine. In fact there were 3 other pairs I have been dreaming about since that day. The only problem was, I saw them around Christmas and knew I had to wait… ugh, how I hate to wait. But as luck would have it and also to my delight, my sneaky boy toy and my lil sis were in cahoots and she so generously gifted them to me for Christmas. I am one lucky girl, that’s for sure.

Just an fyi, the whole line up of slip-on shoes they have is to die for. I am particularly fond of the ocelot, pony hair ones. Check them out here; http://www.windsorsmith.com.au

They are an Australian based company so there will be a bit of a wait to get your order.

So long story short, I knew I had to share with all the Fashionistas. Yes, I know, it has been a hot second since my last post and I feel pretty terrible. But, my blog is my priority in 2014 so you will see a lot more from Little Fashionista in the future.

It’s late and I have a lot of sleeping in to do tomorrow. Have a wonderful day. Goodnight Never, Neverland!

Fall Must Haves

This fall I have one thing on the brain… well two actually. Boots and blazers. Boots are a no brainer for me. Words can’t express how excited I am to wear them again.

Of course I’ve purchased several new pairs in the last few months that I have been dying to bring out.

image

I blogged about these wedges a few months back, and no love has been lost in that time.

My latest Shoemint purchase is equally swoon worthy. These boots have the perfect heel and great adornments.

image

One pair I’m really excited about, and am patiently waiting for, are my new Sperry suede/leather quilted riding boots. I purchased these off of Hautelook and can’t wait to see them in person.

image

Last,  but certainly not least, are my new MIA combat boots. I picked these up at Marshall’s on the weekend and I can’t wait to pair them with the new sweaters I’ve recently purchased.

I can’t find a decent picture, but trust me they are super cute.

On the blazer front, it really is only one, specific, blazer that I covet and it, ladies and gents, is one hellofa blazer.

Behold, the Elizabeth and James creation that I have been dreaming of for days. This lil’ beauty fits like a glove, has a removable, rabbit fur collar and comes in the most beautiful navy, perfect for fall.

image

Clearly I have been a horrific blogger as of late and I am really starting to miss it. I won’t make any promises I can’t keep,  but I will make a serious effort to put in a lot more time on this site.

Happy Tuesday/Wednesday Fashionistas!
