#AMGoHome: Cloffice

One of the things that I was the most excited about when it came to buying the house was having a dedicated office and closet space, where I could work, shoot, and film apart from the same room that I'm sleeping in. I knew that I wanted something a but more open, not as cramped and cluttered as my old room. I have a tour on my YouTube channel that you can watch here.
See below for the things I got for my "cloffice" with additional links at the end of this post. I wanted to avoid having all white walls in the room since I knew a lot of the furniture would be white. I really love how everything turned out and it's just been so nice finally bringing to life something I've pictured in my head for so long. The shelving system in the room is the Pax System from Ikea and some items are linked in my Amazon shop here. Some items may also be missing due to it being an older item and it is no longer in production, but I've tried to link similar items as well.

#AMGoHome: Kitchen

My motto for 2020: "You have food at home." We knew that an open kitchen with a huge island would be a dream, but didn't know if we would find it for our first home for our budget. But luckily, when we saw this house, it was everything we wanted. The kitchen is definitely one of my favorite parts of the house and so we do actually spend a lot of time here. We've outfitted the kitchen to have all of our necessities and it definitely took some time to get everything together, but we love how it turned out. Below, you'll find what we have in our kitchen except for our main cookware which is from Equal Parts.

#AMGoHome: Living Room

The past few weeks have been pretty hectic getting the house together but I've been loving the process and getting everything together! A couple you have messaged me for links so below you'll find the items in our living room! Major shout out to West Elm for sending us over our dream sofa, this coffee table I'm obsessed with, and the coziest jute rug ever. Will be making a separate post for the kitchen/dining appliances, dinnerware, and flatware so stay tuned!

A Month with Skinsei

Last month I filled out an online diagnostic and had my selfie analyzed from personalized skincare brand, Skinsei. I answered a bunch of questions about my skin, my lifestyle, diet, where I live, etc. and wondered how all of these actually related to my skin. As a New Yorker who is constantly on-the-go and always connected to my phone, it turns out my skin needed a lot more attention than I thought. 

After filling out my questionnaire, I received a custom skincare regimen with products that were specifically chosen for me based on the questions about my lifestyle and how it relates to my skin. I got my Complete kit (5 Products) and began using it right away. You can also just get the “Core Kit” which includes 3 instead of 5. First of all, I love how compact the sizing is, making it the perfect routine to travel with. For my lifestyle needs, I received: 
- Clear Victory No. 126: A gel cleanser that left my skin feeling extremely refreshed and helps minimize my breakouts because it helps with excess oils and daily grime. 
- All Toned Up No. 518: A toner that gives my pores that extra TLC. 
- In the Zone No. 351: A clarifying serum that helps maintain a balance in my skin. 
- Opening Act No. 351: this moisturizer absorbs quickly and helps strengthen my skin barrier that's slowly being broken down by the blue light on my phone. Did you know us New Yorkers spend 10+ hours on our digital devices daily? 
- Featherweight No. 817: I am obsessed with this smoothing gel. It leaves my skin feeling powdery smooth and I just can’t get enough of it. 

After using these products consistently for the past few weeks, I'm definitely loving this easy go-to regimen especially when I'm traveling or when I'm busy in the city! If you're interested in seeing what your skin says about you, click the link below and take 20% off your first order with my code ALYSSA20. in giving Skinsei a try, click the link below and take 20% off your first order with my code, “ALYSSA20”

Neiman Marcus InCircle Member

Over the years, I’ve definitely learned the importance of utilizing points and member benefits. We do it for miles when we travel, so why not do it for other benefits when you shop?

You’ve seen me utilize my membership in a number of ways, and it’s all thanks to making the decision to become an InCircle member. As someone who does shop at the store a fair bit, it only made sense to see what perks and benefits I could have access to.
