Catch the Trend: Sherpa-lined Leather Jackets

Fashion bloggers: Jenn Im, Anna Lee, and Claire Marshall are all rocking the sherpa-lined leather jacket trend.  And it's time we step up to the plate.  Leather jackets seriously go with everything and sherpa-lined ones just make it perfect for chilly winter days!

My faux leather jacket from Dynamite has quickly become my favorite piece.  This faux leather jacket has a soft polyester lining and thick polyurethane shell.  In this outfit, I styled it with a classic t-shirt and distressed jeans combo.  And of course, I had to finish my outfit with a pair of Dr. Martens!

Outfit details: 
Jacket: Dynamite
Pants: Forever 21 and DIY
Shirt: Zara
Shoes: Dr. Martens Cherry Red
Lipstick: Rimmel London Kate 107


How would you style it?

Beauty Product Review: Amara Organics Vitamin C Serum

If you are obsessed with Vitamin C serums like me, then you will love this post!  I found another one!  This one from Amara Organics also has 20% Vitamin C in it and it's made from 98% natural ingredients and 72% organic ingredients!  Plus, this serum is cruelty free!

One question I keep thinking now that I'm seeing Vitamin C serums EVERYWHERE, and that's are they all the same?  The answer is actually no.  I was surprised myself.  Many vitamin C serums have less than 20% vitamin C and just have vitamin C in them and nothing else.

But Amara Organics serum also has Vitamin E and Hyaluronic acid, so your skin will look youthful and hydrated.  Say Bye bye to dull skin with this Amara Organics Vitamin C serum.  Unlike many of the Vitamin C serums I've tried, this one doesn't have a citrus smell to it.  It has a very faint smell that's hard to distinguish.

And unlike many other vitamin serums, this one does not have a bright orange or red color.  The serum is clear thick liquid that absorbs quickly in to the skin.  I always have the feeling my face looks orangey after using the other serums.  I love the smell of citrus, but I don't like the color.  I prefer most of my facial products to be mostly odorless and colorless.  And Amara Organics definitely makes the fit!

Amara Organics Vitamin C serum also has a bunch of organic plant extracts in it such as germanium and dandelion.  Germanium extract has scar reducing, anti-aging, and anti-bacterial benefits, which makes it great for acne-prone skin like mine.  Plus the dandelion extract also treats acne breakouts.   I had a few zits on my left cheek.  After I applied this serum overnight, the zits look less red and inflamed.  And after a few days, they were almost gone.
