Spring Beauty Obsessions

Spring Faves 2015

 

Eminence Organics Clear Skin Probiotic Cleanser: This stuff makes me happy…SO HAPPY! I discovered it when I was on vacation in Naples, FL. My skin was breaking out like crazy so I went to the spa at my hotel and asked for something that would clear me up. They recommended the Clear Skin Starter Set which includes the cleanser, moisturizer, mask, and serum. I fell in love with the entire line. I use this cleanser in the morning. I love the way it makes me skin feel and it smells like mint and cucumber– the perfect cleanser to wake me up!

Nars Dual Intensity Blush (Adoration): A blush and a highlighter in one, could you ask for anything more?!? I use this everyday. The colors are gorgeous on every skin tone and a little goes a long way. I also like to mix the highlighter with my lip gloss. I take my finger and dab a little in the center of my lips to make them pop. I even use this on my eyes and put the darker shade in the crease and the highlighter on the lid. So many uses!

Smashbox Pore Minimizing Primer (oil free): Every time I used a product that reduced the size of my pores or minimized my pores I would break out…this primer does not do that! I was so happy to find something that really works without making my skin freak out. The texture is like clay so it’s a little weird at first but once you apply it your skin it becomes soooo smooth. Every time I use this primer people come up to me and tell me how amazing my skin looks…if they only knew THIS primer was the real reason. Secret’s out folks!

Make Up Forever HD Powder: Obsessed. Can’t go a day without it. This makes your skin look flawless. It gets rid of any shine and also sets my makeup beautifully! It doesn’t have a powdery or cakey finish either.

Kat Von D Shade & Light Eye Contour Palette: The colors in this palette are absolutely stunning and can be used for everyday or for a dramatic evening look. The colors are very pigmented and I’m finding NO fallout when applied. I just love this palette– everything about it!

Nivea In Shower Body Lotion: I’m almost out of it and that makes me really sad. I use this to shave my legs and use it right before I get out of the shower. It smells great and makes my skin really soft. I will definitely be purchasing more.

Motorcycle Jackets

Motorcycle Jackets- Fall

The best thing about the motorcycle jacket is its versatility. Wear it with skinny jeans, a tank, and ankle booties for an everyday look. Create an edgily polished look by pairing it with a pencil skirt and stilettos. It’s also a great layering piece that will last for another few months if you put a sweater underneath and a long scarf on top. There is so much you can do to make the motorcycle jacket a closet staple for fall and into winter. What do you think? Are you going to add the motorcycle jacket to your wardrobe?

Blush Crush

Blush Crush

 

I am currently head over heels for blush. It’s the perfect Spring color that doesn’t wash you out and works great with all skin tones. I recently purchased a blush blazer and dress that I can’t wait to wear. I like to pair it with neutrals, navy, and brown. Are you blushing? I am!

In My Suitcase

I am so excited for my trip to Miami next month. I’ve already done some shopping and began thinking about what I need to pack. Traveling can stress me out so I like to plan ahead so I’m not panicking at the last minute. The items above are what I pack when I travel somewhere warm.

A good 2-piece bathing suit: I try to avoid tan lines at all costs, my sister and I love strapless bikini tops. We like to mix and match them too! I love this one with the ruffles.

Cover-up: I just purchased a new cover-up and can’t wait to wear it on my trip. I like a cover-up that can be worn as a dress, rompers work great as well.

Beach tote: I must have a tote that will fit my magazines, sun screen, ipad, etc. I like to use something thats lightweight and that I don’t mind getting a little dirty.

Sunnies: a must to protect my eyes from the sun.

Beach wave spray: I love Fekkai beach wave spray. Since my hair doesn’t hold up well with humidity, I spitz it on my hair when it’s damp to create natural frizz-free waves.

Headphones: I always keep a good pair of headphones with me at all times.

Maxi dress: A flattering and romantic maxi dress is perfect for a casual dinner or to throw on for a shopping trip. 

Fall Booties Under $100

Fall Booties Under $100

How cute are all of these booties?! My friend called me the other day and was on the hunt for fall booties but she didn’t want to spend anymore than $100. I decided to go on a hunt for her to find adorable yet affordable booties. I looooooove booties, they are so versatile and I can wear them with practically anything. I typically wear them dressed up for work during the week with a skirt, tights, and a blazer. On the weekends I wear them with a pair of skinny jeans and a cozy sweater. Which of the booties above are your favorite?

Current Obsessions

Current Obsessions

The above items are what I currently use or wear daily. I can’t live without my clarisonic, it has completely changed the texture of my skin and I’ve been breaking out a lot less. Totally worth the investment especially since you won’t need to take trips to the dermatologist as frequently or purchase expensive products that don’t work. What are you currently obsessed with?

Breast Cancer Awareness Month

Seeing so much pink around the city for breast cancer month got me inspired to write this post. It’s truly amazing to have an entire month dedicated to educating and creating awareness of this disease and there are so many things you can do to support the cause. One of the things I look forward to in October are the discounted beauty specials at Pretty City. Selected salons offer heavily discounted beauty treatments and services for $31 including facials, waxing, laser treatments, massages, and more. A portion of the proceeds benefit Bright Pink. What do you do to support breast cancer awareness month?

My Best Friends Wedding

It’s my best friend Jessica’s wedding this weekend! I am so excited to be a part of her wedding and stand by her side on her special day as the maid of honor. I will be posting pictures on instagram, make sure to follow me if you don’t already.

Hope everyone has a great weekend!

Oxblood

The name of this bold dark maroon color kinda freaks me out but the more I see it, the more I fall in love with it. Since I have dark features, reds have always been my go to color (besides black of course!). I’m loving this color so much that it’s going to be the next color I put on my nails. Oxblood is a beautiful rich color, it’s dark but not too dark where I would classify it as goth. If you’re not into reds, start out small with an oxblood accessories to determine if this color is for you. I’m a big fan of the oxblood leather pants!
