sk-II-skincare-nordstromI have been busy packing for NYFW for the last few days. This season, I’m so thrilled to be teaming up with SK-II while at fashion week as their fashion correspondent. SK-II is the official skincare sponsor of Mercedes Benz Fashion Week. I can hardly wait to attend shows like Carolina Herrera, where I’ll have the chance to head back-stage to watch the models get their skin prepped with SK-II products prior to Bobbi Brown doing their makeup.

Although I first heard of SK-II years ago from my mom, I’ve never actually tried any of their product until just a few weeks ago. When they asked if I would work with them during NYFW, I was anxious to try out their products before I said yes. Over the last few weeks I’ve been testing out each product from their cleanser, to their Cellumination Aura Bright serum and clear lotion. I’ve been so pleased with the results that  I’ve seen in my skin already and can’t wait to add some of the SK-II products to my daily skincare routine.

Because fashion week is a time where you want to look and feel amazing, last night I took a relaxing evening to treat myself to a mini facial to give my skin a boost before fashion week begins. I used the SK-II Facial Treatment Mask and laid in my bed watching the bachelor with a box of See’s Candies Chocolates (my one true pregnancy craving). It was heavenly and SO relaxing!!

Be sure to follow along later this week for behind the scenes access into NYFW with SK-II!

xo, Rach

In September of 2011 I created Pink Peonies as a place to document the things I loved. Since then, it has become a creative outlet where I share my personal style though daily outfits, beauty tips, home style and much more!

Ever since I was a little girl I've dreamed of creating my own line. After countless hours of working towards that dream, I've finally launched my first collection!

It's full of classic, feminine and romantic pieces that you'll keep in your closet for years to come and wear over and over again!
