Getting Peachy

Apricot or Peach emoji? You decide.

What I'm Wearing:
No Doubt Tee - Hot Topic
Skate Shoes - Vans

A few weeks ago, I took a little trip to the St. Ive's Mixing bar in NYC located at 577 Broadway. Was the trip planned? Nope. If you're a New Yorker, then you probably make plans to go out with your friends without any real kind of plan. While roaming the city with my friends, I instantly recognized the St. Ive's storefront as I have been seeing it all over social media. Originally, the pop-up was only supposed to open for six weeks during the Summer. However, due to popular demand, they extended their stay here in NYC until September 30th.

Would you recommend visiting the St. Ive's mixing bar?

Absolutely! The store provides a very fresh and airy atmosphere. Not to mention, it makes for a great photo op! Aside from the bright colors painted on the wall, along with the fresh ingredients located on the shelves throughout the store, they also have a photo booth (where I clearly had a bit too much fun in)! In the photo booth room you're encouraged to make your own gif, or to just interact with the apricot props scattered all around. 

Since I got to the store pretty close to closing time, I did not get to mix up my own skincare products. If my schedule allows me to, I'd definitely stop by again and pick one up before they leave for good. Interested in visiting yourself? Here are some of the mixes they offer:

Shower Hacks - How To Stay Fresh on a Budget

Sponsored Post: This post is sponsored by Suave however, all content and opinions expressed here are my own.

As the seasons change, there is one thing that seems to remain the same: my love for long, relaxing showers. Taking a shower is typically my favorite part of the day. It allows me to unwind, plan out what I'm going to do the next day, and sometimes even pretend I'm performing at Madison Square Garden (I mean a girl can dream, right?)

From swapping regular curtain rings for decorative rope to applying clear nail polish to the rims of all my metal products to prevent rust, I think it's safe to say I've just about mastered Shower Hacks 101. Since I spend so much time in the shower, I enjoy experimenting with new products from time to time. During my most recent trip to Duane Reade, I came across the new body washes from Suave Essentials. I've seen so much buzz about these washes all over the internet and decided to give them a shot to see what they're all about. As a college student, I am always looking for a good deal. Therefore, when I saw that each 18oz bottle was only $2 I just had to stock up on some! Suave offers such a great assortment of fragrances that are suitable for any occasion. Whether if you're freshening up after the gym, preparing for a date, or just feel like pampering yourself, you're bound to find a scent you love.

 After taking the Suave Body Wash Quiz, they paired me with the "Almond Verbana" scent, which ironically happened to be my favorite scent out of the three bottles I purchased. Aside from them all smelling amazing, they also do a great job of cleaning and hydrating your skin.
