Elemis Pro-Collagen Rose Cleansing Balm

Cleansing balms are my favorite product for removing makeup. I find that they are most effective and super quick. I have a few holy grail favorites, but I am always in the market to try a new one.

I stopped by Ulta after work in need of a new balm. I saw that the Elemis Pro-Collagen Rose Cleansing Balm received good reviews online, so I picked up the sample size to try.

After giving it a go tonight, I have to say I really like it. It went on kind of greasy and thick at first which worried me. I thought it would leave a greasy residue as some cleansing balms do, but this washed off completely clean leaving no residue. I have to use it a few more times before I can decide if the full size is worth the $64 price tag but so far, so good!

Nail the Perfect Gallery Wall

gallery-wall-ideas

Gallery walls are the perfect way to create a focal point in any room. They allow you to use your creativity to find pieces that work cohesively together to create one giant piece of art. They are great for large walls that need a little extra help. Executing your gallery wall can seem a bit daunting, so here are my steps that make it fool proof.

Step One: Find Your Wall and Decide on a Theme
Figure out which wall you want to showcase your gallery. Take notice of the feel of the room, the colors and the design aesthetic. You want your gallery wall to make sense with the design of your room. Use your creative instincts to decide what kind of art would look good in your room. Whether it be all black and white photos for a modern minimalistic look, or a tropical theme like the photo below. Make sure you have a defined theme.

Step Two: Sketch Out Your Wall
No artist skills needed here. Just a blank piece of paper and a pencil will suffice. This process will help you visualize your wall and make it easy when it comes time to finding art. If you already have the art you wish to use, look through each piece and then sketch it out.

Step Three: Find Your Art
When I decided I wanted to create a gallery wall. I found a website called Desenio that sells posters and frames. They have an incredible selection and frames to fit your posters. They make it super easy to create a theme for your wall if you’re finding it difficult to do it alone.

Step Four: Measure and Tape
A partner comes in handy for this step. Use your sketch as a guide and depending on your spacing preference, measure your layout. Mark the measurements with pencil or tape.

Step Five: Hang and Voilà, You’re Done!
This step pretty much defines itself. After hanging your pictures, take a step back and make sure everything is level and to your liking. You can always make adjustments later.

Get Lucy Hale’s Look for Less

Actress Lucy Hale, best known for her role as Aria in the popular tv series Pretty Little Liars, is quite the little fashionista. At just 5 feet 2 inches, she knows how to rock fashion on her tiny frame. I am 5’4, so I look to her to see what pieces work best on a shorter stature. See how you can get her street style for less.
