I don't usually gravitate toward slides, wedges, or shoes with a lot of glam factor, but rosegold is my jam, and these No.6 sandals for summer are too hard to pass up. Pair them with pretty much anything for a pop of style and color this season. Find them here at Cameron Marks.
The other day I was at one of my favorite local stores in Santa Cruz—Cameron Marks, and I instantly fell in love with this sweet, blue, silk top from Ulla Johnson for $295. Admittedly, that is a lot to spend on a top, but for one that's as pretty as this one, it's worth it. The color is perfection and the style is ever-lasting: one part boho, one part flirty and fun. Find it at Cameron Marks in person or at the Ulla Johnson website here.
I love checking out what my local stores are currently carrying. Always best to support local, right? When I happened upon the Cameron Marks website the other day, I found this beauty of a top from Ulla Johnson. It's made of silk, has white swiss dots, and is sweet without being too sweet. Perfect for spring and summer. Find it here.
I've written about this fragrance from Cameron Marks before, but now that I'm a proud owner of it, I can really write about it from a place of authority. Coined the "Cameron Marks Secret Potion," this vial of fabulous smelling liquid is certainly a secret. But it doesn't have to be for much longer.
I was gifted this for Christmas, and while it's a new and different scent to add to my growing collection, I absolutely adore it.
I discovered the fragrance after giving the owner of Cameron Marks, Vanessa Ambrose, a hug one day. When I left, her perfume hung onto my scarf and I found myself sniffing it all day, wondering what that fabulous smell was. Later, I inquired and found out it was a secret potion that she sells at her store in Santa Cruz, as well as online.
The scent notes are described as amber and patchouli, but on my skin type, I don't smell the patchouli at all. I pick up the amber and undertones of vanilla, but most of all, it reminds me of warmth and beauty, if you could describe such a thing for a smell. It's cozy, original, and smells like modern style.

I've been hearing about the benefits of using a cleansing oil, but didn't really buy into the hype. Until now, after I finally used this brilliant one from Monastery, sold at Cameron Marks and online For $34, this isn't a cheap way to clean your face. It's an investment. But isn't your face worth it?
I used to use Cetaphil, but that seemed to dry my oily skin out. Then I started using a similar offering from Whole Foods, which was just...OK. Then, I switched it up and tried a higher end Whole Foods cleanser made for acne-prone skin. It also dried out my skin.
Because I use some aggressive anti-aging topicals (Tazorac and mandelic serum), I needed to find a way to retain the moisture in my skin while also combatting acne. For a while now, I've been battling dry patches on my face, which is new to me as an oily girl. So, I thought I'd try cleansing oil and see if it could solve my dilemma. And it sure did.
The Rose Cleansing Oil seen here removes dirt and makeup and leaves behind silky, moisturized skin. Not only have my dry patches disappeared, but my skin is glowing more than it has in a while. I'm hooked!
