  1. Hey! Can I ask you where the blouse is from with the red lips and high pony tail that you said you are working with Piperlime? Thanks! Love the pattern!

  2. Glad the La Mer doesn’t break you out. All of their formulas made my skin break out. You should really read this article about 1£ Nivea cream that performed better than La Mer in dermatological scans! You could save on moisturizer (if it also doesn’t break you out) & have more $ for clothing ;)

  3. Hi Rach!
    Love your blog so much, your the cutest thing! I have the LaMer moisturizer also but I find it too heavy to use on my face and I’m afraid I will break out. Do you use it on your face? Have you had any problems with it? Should I try it?
    Thanks so much,

    1. Michelle,

      I use it on my face. The lady who helped me said it’s specifically a facial moisturizer. A little goes a long way so I don’t put a ton of it on and I use it morning and night. I know everyone’s skin is so different but it works great for me. Which moisturizer do you have?

  4. Hi Rach! Totally love love the chairs-can you tell me what fabric and finish you chose-would love to do these in my room as well. Thanks!!
