Do you remember summer camp? Days of tents, bunk beds, canoes, campfires, s’mores…all good childhood memories, right? Sparked by her own camp memories, designer Tamar Wilder was led to create her clothing line, CAMP Collection, inspired by her love of the outdoors. The Fall 2014 collection is the second collection for the brand, filled with chambrays, plaids and cool hand-drawn graphic tees – essentially, all about the girl who doesn’t mind getting dirty outdoors, but wants to look awesome doing it. Check out the photos from the gorgeous Fall Lookbook (shot in Australia by Renee Carey, featuring model Rachel Rutt) above, and shop the new collection at ShopCamp.com.
Recently, with the changing season (and more importantly, weather), I’ve been looking for a new gentle, yet effective cleanser to try. I’ve heard good things about the skincare line, VERSO, and decided to try out their Foaming Cleanser.
First, I love the minimalistic packaging. The simple black and white bottle, paired with the bold typeface…this is perfect for leaving out on the bathroom counter. If you had the entire line, it would look so gorgeous together for an immediately styled bathroom vignette.
The cleanser itself markets itself as a “soothing and purifying gentle foaming cleanser for daily use,” and after using it, I can say that this cleanser is exactly that. The cleanser itself pumps out as a thicker white liquid, and with water, it foams and lathers nicely on the skin. It has a very light clean scent that I found soothing, not irritating. It easily removed all light makeup, grime and excess oil from the day without leaving behind any residue. Most importantly, so far – no breakouts from using this cleanser (which can easily happen for me). A thumbs up for daily use!
Trying to get your body swimsuit-ready for the warmer weather? Now is such a great time to stock up on some fitness goodies to get in shape for summer. Like I’ve mentioned before (in previous posts), working out requires motivation for me, and cute clothes certainly help! Athleta has some really fun options, but I’ve actually never tried their activewear…until now. I was pretty impressed by the fit, fashion and function of the pieces I tried.

I’m entering that stage in my life where it feels like everyone I know is becoming or is a new mama. I get to play auntie to adorable babies and kids, spoil them, and then give them back to their parents when the fun is over (best part of kids that aren’t yours, right?). However, that means that my devices have lately become the favorite toys (or distraction) for these kids, who are so tech-savvy at a young age. It was time to beef up the protection on those gadgets that could potentially be dropped, spilled on, etc. I looked to Griffin Technology‘s Survivor series, which is an “extreme-duty” case for your devices, to help me out.

Even though the days are warming up, it can still be cool at night. And lately on weekend nights, for me, there’s almost nothing better than cozying up with a throw, lighting a candle and catching up on magazines. I’m a big fan of Voluspa‘s Candles, and was so excited when they reached out about their newest collection, Maison Jardin.
The collection is composed of 4 fragrances:
Since I gravitate toward florals and citrus scents, I happily tried to the Sake Lemon Flower Maison Metallo Candle. This is a lovely tart scent, but the sake note tempers the citrus, preventing it from being overly sweet.
Their containers are so lovely, as well. This one has gorgeous vintage-inspired florals, and their double wick configuration always leaves the candle burning evenly. (Tip: Make sure it always burns to the edges to prevent tunneling and for continuous even burns.)
