My New Stay Fresh Essential: Dove Dry Spray

So excited to partner with Dove in spreading the word about their Dove Dry Spray antiperspirant

My love for Dove is no secret. Their soap bar is always in my shower and it's my go-to for washing my sensitive face. So I jumped at the chance when Dove invited me to #TryDry – as in, try out their award-winning Dove Dry Spray antiperspirant in my beauty routine.

You might not think of your antiperspirant as a beauty item, but it's definitely part of mine. If I had to leave the house with only three beauty items on... it'd be: antiperspirant, mascara, and a bold lipstick. In that order.

The verdict on Dove Dry Spray? Smitten.

Here's why Dove Dry Spray is now a staple on my bathroom vanity and a must-have in my purse:

1. Moisturizing 
Because of my dry, sensitive skin, I've struggled with a lot of deodorants and antiperspirants. Dry, itchy underarms are distracting, embarrassing, and just plain uncomfortable. Dove is a brand I can rely on to moisturize and take care of my skin. And the Dove Dry Spray does not disappoint. All of that signature 1/4 moisturizing care that I expect from Dove is packed into the dry spray, too – meaning softer, smoother underarms and a comfortable, more confident me.

2. Time-saving
When I'm rushing around in the morning or on the go, every little second saved helps. This isn't your typical "spray" antiperspirant. It's dry spray. It boasts an instantly dry application. No fanning my underarms to get them dry. No waiting to get dressed. 

3. Worry-free
I'll admit it: sometimes a girl gets a bit sweaty. And sometimes, the more I worry about sweat... the more I perspire! It's a vicious, sweaty cycle. Dove Dry Spray has me covered with 48-hour odor and wetness protection. So odor and wetness are two things I can forget about whether I'm at the office or running around town all day. And since it goes on dry with no visible residue, I don't have to worry about my antiperspirant making an appearance when going sleeveless!

Bonus Reason: It smells so fresh and lovely! I have a picky nose. (I'm the person in the deodorant aisle spending a good fifteen minutes picking out a fragrance. I ended up with the Cool Essentials scent. "Cooling and watery notes of freshly cut cucumber, green tea, and melon are combined with fresh floral notes to give it a vibrant and refreshing scent." It smells like springtime! Next on my list to try? The Soothing Chamomile, which my store was out of but I'll be on the hunt for!

Now it's your turn to give the latest
beauty trend a spin and #TryDry!

DIY Cat Barrier for Under $100 (See-Through, Climb-Proof, and Too-Tall-To-Jump)

ICYMI: I gave up Cotton after deciding that after trying so many things, my two adopted cats Dahlia and Cotton were just never going to get along. Long story short: I missed her. And Cotton's back. And Dahlia's not going anywhere. My heart is big enough to keep trying. And my apartment is big enough that if I need to keep them separated long term (or permanently), it can be done.
I'm going to write-up a separate post about some of the solutions I've tried, how they worked, who they worked on, and what I'll be trying next. But in this post, I wanted to share the main 'piece de resistance' of having both cats in my apartment: an un-climbable, un-jumpable, see-through barrier to separate Cotton and Dahlia.

Aria's Room | Pretty Little Liars Decor

Welcome back for LU's 2nd room in the PLL series!  Today you're getting a glimpse into my favorite room on the show... Aria's room.  Aria Montgomery is the artistic, imaginative, bookworm of the bunch.  So it's no surprise that her room has an artsy, historic, romantic eclecticism atmosphere.  Plus, it's full of books.  My two words for Aria's attic space: Vintage Eclectic.  (Those happen to be my two favorite decorating words... so brace yourself for my soon-to-come swooning.)

Pencil It In | Working the Pencil Skirt into Your Work Attire, Including 25 Examples with Do's and Don'ts

Starting this week, every Wednesday on The Lovely Side will be devoted to wardrobe, hair, and beauty content.  With summer internships right around the corner and interviews for real world jobs looming as well, I thought now would be a good time to delve into the world of office fashion.  
Sarah, a reader, recently emailed me asking about how to style a pencil skirt for her "somewhat casual, somewhat professional workplace full of fashionable co-workers."  She's been lusting after pencil skirts at several stores, but been hesitant to purchase one for fear of looking bad in it and not knowing what to wear with it.
