It’s fair to say I’m obsessed with having a glowing youthful complexion. In my quest for that, as well as being a lifetime beauty junkie, I’ve tried a lot of products. Luckily I have my go-to skincare girl, Niki Johnson to rein it a little and suggest products just for my skin. I only mention products if I actually use them and am super loyal to them. I try things I like regularly, but these products have stood the test of time.

Golden Gate Bridge Fashion Brenna Mader San Francisco FashionAs you know, I love to travel. In the moments spent anticipating a trip, I often envision myself traipsing through a certain destination in a certain outfit. I can’t help it – I want to look fab while I’m enjoying my vacay! haha I know I can’t be alone in this…

Due to some technical difficulties and travel, last Friday’s post is happening on a Tuesday. This look is all about spring comfort. Black and white is a classic look that isn’t going out of style any time soon and I love how adding in a little bit of grey looks.

The lightweight fabric and fit of this top will keep you cool even on a warm day and I’m not kidding when I say these pants feel like wearing sweatpants… or better yet, nothing. Continue reading

This playlist is an eclectic mix, as usual, but has a lot of vibey beats that make great background or driving music. I usually don’t get too into those, but found myself holding up my Shazam at various events to find out the names of songs that had caught my attention. I also love the new Flo Rida song “Wobble” when I’m trying to get my work out on. If you want all the feels, check out “Heartbreak Hotel” by Kuzin, a beautiful and haunting piece by Nashville artist, Jessica Maros who is also a member of Escondido.
