Skincare from Farmhouse Fresh


I love a good facial mask and right now I'm loving my Farmhouse Fresh Pudding A Peel Tapioca + Rice Active Fruit Glycol Mask! It sounds like a mouth full to say, but all you need to know is that it does amazing things to your face. As you already know, I'm all about using skincare with natural ingredients and this mask is 97% natural. This Power Pudding contains a fine mixture of honey, coconut milk, green tea, and honeysuckle extracts and smells good enough to eat! Crazy thing is I don't even like tapioca or rice pudding, but I love this mask. It gets rid of dead skin cells that may start piling up during the winter time, while moisturizing and soothing your skin after battling the harsh winter air.

Just "Soothe" Yourself Giveaway

Soothe.com
Has your start to the new year been stressful? Even if it hasn't, everyone can use a bit of relaxation. Amist all the craziness of everyday life, it's great to take a moment and chill out. If you know me, you know that I am always down for a trip to the spa, but let's face it, the weather is getting ugly and finding the time out of your already busy schedule could be a little uneasy, dare I say painful. Rest assured, Fashion of Philly has partnered with Soothe, a same day, massage on-demand service, for an ahhh-mazing giveaway!

Style Post: Two Arrows in the Snow


The first snowfall of the year was unexpected, short and sweet. Speaking of sweet, how cute is this top from South Moon Under! It's from one of the newest brands you can find there called Two Arrows. It's a beautiful flowy, surplice top in a dainty floral pattern. Two Arrows makes some really nice tops that are super cute and can be styled a number of ways. You can find their other styles here and here.

My Visit to Charlie's Jeans


I kind of have a love/hate relationship with jeans. I love to wear them, but I hate the struggle of finding a pair that fits, let alone fits well, but Charlie's Jeans said they can find me the perfect pair of jeans on the first try. I was really interested in seeing how this would work, so I took them up on the challenge.

About Me: 5 Personal Goals to Work on in 2016


I don't usually blog too much about personal things. Mostly beauty reviews, event recaps and other fun stuff, but I think this year {First Goal} I would like to include more about who Brittiny is and let you into my bubble a little more. For one thing, I hardly have any pictures of myself or much of my everyday life on here. Things like what I like to eat, my favorite recipes, getaways and family life.  Don't get me wrong, this maybe hard for me to do at first simply because even though I know no one lives in a perfect world, that's all most people (bloggers, entertainers, etc.) let you see. No shade to them, none what so ever, I just want to be more realistic/relatable.
