JOUER: AFFORDABLE CLEAN BEAUTY ESSENTIALS

LA blogger, RELish By Arielle tries Blush & Bloom Cheek + Lip Duo by Jouer

When it comes to makeup, I’m always on the hunt for clean beauty products that enhance my skin. As a full-time working mama, I don’t have time to do a full face of makeup before all of the zoom calls. If I do have 5-10 minutes to spare in the morning (IF!), I love adding minimal makeup: mascara, a dab of highlighter to my eyelids and cheekbones and some lip gloss. Naturally, I’m obsessing over a new product by Jouer that does ALMOST all of these things. Sharing this particular product with you today as well as a few others by Jouer which my skin has fallen in love with. If you’re looking to achieve an affordable, healthy, dewy glow, this post is for you.

GIFTS NEW MAMAS REALLY WANT

LA mom and style blogger, RELish By Arielle shares gifts new moms really want

When most -people think about gifts to buy new mamas, they usually gravitate towards generous gifts for her new baby. While these are ALWAYS appreciated, I’ve learned it’s also important to brainstorm gifts for new mamas to enjoy during the postpartum period and beyond. After having Naiya, a friend gifted me the most beautiful “Naiya” necklace and to this day, I literally never take it off.  It was one of the most thoughtful, special gifts and it left such a lasting impact. So today, I’m rounding up gifts for new mamas (clickable below) to enjoy in case you’re racking your brain for what to buy them.

DENIM REFRESH: GEN Z-INSPIRED


There’s ALL this talk recently about skinny jeans vs. wide-leg jeans.  Apparently, Gen Z says skinny jeans are OUT!  While I’m not throwing out my skinny jeans anytime soon, I’m totally here for comfier, more relaxed-fitting jeans.  After all, they’re BASICALLY sweatpants–but cuter.  Rounding up some of my favorite Gen Z-inspired jeans (clickable below) which I have my eye on right now. These jeans have a cool-girl vibe but they’re still mom-appropriate. Topping off today’s post with some photos we snapped in the Arizona desert a couple of weeks ago when I was wearing my current fave pair of relaxed-fitting denim. Linking to outfit details below too.

I can’t believe it’s already time to start thinking about spring clothing! It feels like just yesterday we were preparing for spring when COVID decided to make its unexpected appearance.

Likewise, rounding up a number of amazing dresses for spring (clickable above) that are comfortable enough to wear while working from home. These dresses also happen to be cute past all the zoom calls and they’ll turn heads out in the real world too (someday!).
