The One Thing that Transformed My Skin This Spring

It’s no secret that I’ve struggled with dry skin. Some people get patches on their hands or face during winter that clear when the weather gets warmer, and some people, like me, suffer off and on all year long with itchy, tight, dry skin on their face and other places on their body. Not only do I suffer from dry skin, but I have sensitive skin and am prone to patches of eczema. The struggle is real.

How to Combat Dry Skin

I sound like a real winner, don’t I?! ;) While it may seem like my skin looks bad, it usually doesn’t. For me, my dry skin is more of a sensation; I often feel itchiness and notice flakiness when scratched that is enough to drive anyone a little bit crazy. All this to say, this spring I finally found a product that transformed my dry skin, and I can’t wait to share more about the transformation I’ve seen over the past three months of using the Curél® Hydra Therapy Wet Skin Moisturizer!

We Bought a House!

Happy Tuesday! I’m so excited to share the news that we finally bought a house! This is a long time coming, and we are so thrilled to finally be done with the buying process. (And yes, now the real work begins!)

Seattle 1965 Mid-century Modern Home // Hello Rigby Seattle Home Blog As much as I initially enjoyed house shopping, the Seattle Real Estate Market is not for the faint of heart. We had our hearts broken over the first house that we fell in love with, lost out on a house that was truly for the best, and walked away from one without making an offer that needed a whole lot of help and felt like a money pit. Third times the charm as we got the third house we made an offer on, and we couldn’t be happier!

It’s a 1965 Mid-century Modern home. It was owned by the same family since it was built and lovingly cared for all those years. With that said, we have a lot of renovation work to do to both finish the house (we have almost 1,000 square feet of unfinished basement!) and to modernize parts of it that we aren’t so crazy about. Overall, however, we will be renovating it to its 60s glory and maintaining as much of the aesthetic of that era as possible.

With all that said, my life is going to be changing a bit. My weekends and evenings may have more house projects in them than they did previously. Is that going to affect my blog? I’m not sure yet.

That’s where I need your help – are you interested in seeing home content? Are house projects of interest to you? Would you prefer room tours or projects? I’d love to share, but only if it proves interesting or useful to you. After all, you’ve kept me coming back to this space and motivated to keep on keeping on, and I want to be sure I’m giving you what you want!

I’ve inserted an anonymous poll below, and I’d love your honest feedback.

(If you can’t see the poll, you can also take it here!)

Thanks for all of your support and bearing with my wacko blogging schedule over the past year or so while we sold our condo and were in search of our first house! You guys are the best. 💗

5 Step No Makeup Makeup with Clarins

The struggle is real when it comes to making your lashes look voluminous without falsies. I’ll try any trick in the book because if I’m honest, I still haven’t mastered the false lash application. I’ve loved the no makeup makeup look lately, and fuller looking lashes can make all the difference. But really, who has time for that in the morning when you’re getting ready for work?! Not this girl.

Clarins 3-Dot Liner Natural Makeup Tutorial + Review // Hello Rigby Seattle Fashion Blog Disclosure: This post is sponsored by Clarins. All opinions shared in this post are my own!

I’m excited to partner today with Clarins to share their new 3-Dot Liner. It’s both perfect for making the lashline appear fuller and for those who may not be the best at wielding an eyeliner pen just yet. Lately, I’ve loved a no makeup makeup look, with a dash of a glow of course! I think it’s perfect for this time of year when the weather is getting nicer, and the temperatures are getting warmer. I’ve been trying to fit more into my mornings, which means less time for creating a makeup look and more time for other things. Because of that, I wanted to make this no makeup makeup tutorial as simple as possible. You can get this look in just five easy steps (and probably 5 minutes or less, too!).

Stitch Fix May 2017

Well, it’s better late than never, right? I’m posting my May Stitch Fix review a bit later than normal, but such is life. April was a month of big changes, more on that soon, which meant sometimes other areas of life suffer. You know, adult problems. Anyway, a monthly delivery from Stitch Fix is always a welcome relief from boring adult activities, and this one is a good one!

Last Minute Mother’s Day Gift Ideas

Yesterday my mom and I set out on another Mother’s Day Adventure, this time at Pacific Place in Downtown Seattle. Knowing my mom and her love of window shopping, I knew partnering up with them would be a great fit! With so many great options to shop at for Mom, Pacific Place is a one-stop destination, with stores like L’Occitane, Chico’s, and Francescasr to delicious food options from Din Tai Fung, Pike Place Chowder, and sweet treats from Trophy Cupcake, you really can’t go wrong. Plus if you and mom are exhausted from an all-day shopping adventure, you can always kick up your feet and catch a flick at the AMC Theatre at the very top! ;)
