Follow Me On My New Blog Twig Twig!

wigtwiglogo1FLATHi, everyone!

I know it’s been a long while since I’ve posted on here, but I wanted to let everyone know that I have a new blog now: Twig Twig. On this new blog, I post OOTD shoots, beauty product reviews, and tidbits about what’s going on in my life. I also plan on incorporating some entertainment reviews and articles occasionally as well. You see, while I love posting here on Style Daze Blog, I always felt that something was a little off. I realized that I didn’t want to post just style posts; I wanted to be able to post about a variety of topics. I felt like I kind of holed myself into the style category with my blog name, and I didn’t think it would make much sense to see other kinds of articles on this site.

So I went through a process of figuring out what I wanted to write about, figuring out a new name. I wanted this new blog to be like my home on the internet, where I could share anything. I came up with the name Twig Twig. It’s named partly after the street I grew up on. It seemed like a perfect fit.DSC_0158 (1)

I also spent some time developing a new aesthetic. I wanted to feel completely in control of my blog’s image–from logo to widgets to the entire theme. The new design feels fresh.  DSC_0175I would absolutely love it if you guys could follow me at TwigTwig.com. I’ll be sure to follow back. 

I’m also on Instagram, Twitter, and Bloglovin.

I’m excited to get back in touch with all of you!

Current Crush: Topshop Sleeveless Smock Dress

Today’s Current Crush is Topshop’s Sleeveless Smock Dress.

topshopDress

Here in Jersey, we may have just had a snowstorm (and a dud of a forecasted blizzard), but many of us are thinking of the gorgeous spring weather ahead.

This Sleeveless Smock Dress is my current dream. Not only is it adorable–it’s short, breezy, and loose-fitting without making the wearer lose her shape–but it is what I’m wearing in my warm weather daydreams while I scrape ice off car windshields and shovel snow onto the tundra of a front lawn. I’d pair this dress with an edgy pair of boots–maybe my wedged black booties–scrunched down socks, some layered gold necklaces, and a plaid shirt thrown over it to keep it casual. I’d wear this out to my favorite cafe to grab some light lunch and an iced coffee on those wonderful, wonderful warm spring days.

How would you wear this dress?

Spotlight: Burt’s Bees Night Cream

Whenever winter weather creeps around, my skin gets dry. I know, I know, not the most profound finding, but with sensitive skin like mine, it’s difficult to find a moisturizer that doesn’t leave my hands, let alone my face, red and irritated. After having good experiences with Burt’s Bees products before–I’ve used their lip balm and exfoliating scrub–I decided to pick up a jar of Burt’s Bees Sensitive Night Cream in an effort to ward off dry skin on my face.

DSC_0372This cream is amazing. Whereas some lotions seem to aggressively attack dry spots, leaving skin sore and in even worse condition, this night cream soothes. I’ve been rubbing this product onto my face and neck every night before I go to sleep, and I feel it working right away. The combination of Burt’s Bees Sensitive Night Cream and my daily morning SPF/face lotion has protected my fair skin through the harsh winter weather.

What’s your winter moisturizing routine?

Style Daze Blog Logo

One of my goals for 2015 is to further customize my site and make changes regarding its appearance. With that said, I really wanted to add a personalized header to Style Daze Blog. Luckily, I have a wonderful boyfriend who know how to do computer things! So, if you’ve been to my site recently, you’ll have seen it at the top of the page, but, if you haven’t, here it is!

cropped-styledazelogo-2-flatten1.jpgI love this logo! Hope you guys do too! There will be more changes coming to my site soon!

Spotlight: DuWop’s Lip Venom

Today’s Spotlight is on DuWop’s Lip Venom.

Spotlight: Lip VenomSpotlight: Lip VenomI had been wanting to try this product for a few months after hearing that lip venom makes your lips plumper. This product, while not super long-lasting, does make your lips appear fuller–but only slightly. When you apply the lip venom with its wand, you can feel the venom working; it made my lips feel really tingly. The first time I applied it, I freaked out just a little bit because I had no idea if it was supposed to feel that way or now, but I’ve gotten used to it since then. It seems obvious, but the level of tingly-ness you feel depends on how much lip venom you put on your lips.

This lip venom, which has the consistency of a thick lip gloss (it looks like a clear gloss on too), also has an incredible scent. I know, I know, people using lip venom aren’t going for great smell, but it smells like cinnamon! Not super strongly, but mmm, it smells good. And that’s always a plus in my book.

Have you tried lip venom before, and, if so, how’d you like it? Let me know in the comments. (:

Monday Music: “You & I (Forever)”–Jessie Ware

Today I’m debuting a new feature on Style Daze Blog: Monday Music. Each Monday I will share a song. The reasons will likely vary; I might have that song playing over and over in my head that week, or maybe I recently discovered (or rediscovered) it, or perhaps I genuinely loved the video and felt the need to share. Whatever the reason, I hope you enjoy this new feature.

Kicking off the first Monday Music is Jessie Ware’s “You & I (Forever).” The music video grabbed me before the song did. I love the photo booth setting, and I adore all the relationships it showcases. But I also thought the song was fantastic. Jessie’s voice is beautiful. Let me know what you guys think.
