It’s always challenging to shed my daily wardrobe of pj’s and cozies after the holidays and get back to actual clothes.  I refuse to be uncomfortable so I’ve been gravitating to my collection of knit dresses in my closet.  This one you’ve seen before and is an absolute favorite.  I wear this dress for everything from lunch and coffee dates, to running errands, to dinner parties.  I must do another Nicole Bridger shop soon!

This time of year is definitely all about socializing.  It’s impossible to have a new outfit for every occasion, however getting creative with layers and textures can transform your wardrobe to something new.  This outfit gave me that perfect balance of cozy but polished.  I layered two dresses to achieve my desired look.  I was warm enough to be outside taking pictures but not too warm when we were inside sipping London Fogs.  I feel like this one will be making a repeat showing over the holidays.

I will have a last minute Christmas gift post coming this weekend! Be sure to check back for some fun ideas.

 

With the official arrival of Summer I have switched gears with my beauty routine.  I’ve been busy testing new products to find some new favorites for this season.  Beautiful glowy skin is must for me.  Lush Herbalism has been a perfect daily cleanser for me.  I love that it gently exfoliates too.  Pretty skin high lighters, a water resistant blush, along with a bold liner, and natural hued nails and gloss complete my beachy look.  We all know that sun protection is a must but don’t forget about your pout.  On sun soaked days be sure to layer on some sun protection under your gloss.  For Summer, I’m a sucker for some fabulous over-sized earrings.  Large hoops or a big metallic drop earring give instant glam to your go-to sundress.    

Revlon Photoready Skinlights c/0 London Drugs,  Estee Lauder  (c/0) Heat Wave gold shadow,  Lise Watier Pink Plaid nail polish (c/o London Drugs),  Lush (c/o) Herbalism facial cleanser,  Cargo water resistant blush (c/o London Drugs),  Vichy (c/o) lip protection stick (SPF 30),  Cargo Texas Liner (c/0 London Drugs),  Aerin Shell Lip Gloss (c/o Estee Lauder),  Earrings: Forever 21 (an amazing bargain of $1.80)

 

New glosses, lipsticks, eyeshadows, foundation, and nail art by Revlon.

This Spring/Summer season Revlon is giving us loads of fresh, bright hues.  I recently had the opportunity to preview and try their new collection.  They have thought of all the things I care about for warmer weather.  Their Nearly Naked foundation offers up barely there coverage, beautiful new glosses and lip shades that scream Summer, and fun new nail lacquers in beautiful natural tones.  I’m personally quite in love with the Baby Sticks for lips and cheeks from the Pacific Coast Collection by Gucci Westman.  You can either add sheer texture with a subtle flush to the cheek or do a punch of colour on the lip.  They have two limited addition shades…Sunset and Tahitian.  Love them!  I can’t wait to play even more with all these fun and amazing products.

Have a beauty question?  I’d love to hear them.

 

I have been commuting for the last few years now.  Commuting forces me to be organized in the morning before I leave the house.  As much as I plan ahead sometimes things come up like an extra meeting or an impromptu dinner.   Unfortunately I don’t have the luxury to quickly run home for a little primp.   Instead my car has to double as a beauty parlor.  These are my essentials.

Bag: Lancome, Lipstick: Estee Lauder, Lipgloss: Lancome, Mascara: Almay, Brush: Lancome, Face creme: Lancome, Earrings: gift, Tissues: sniff,  Bronzer: Too Faced, Eyeliner: Revlon,  Tide-To-Go, Hair ties: Splendid;  Anti-Bacterial Hand Gel:  Bath & Body Works;  Sugar-free gum

By taking these key beauty items with me I can switch my makeup from a day to evening look.  I change my gloss to a rich lipstick, pump up my eyes with some liner, and add a sparkly earring and I’m set.  Things like hair ties and stain remover are my just in case items.  Hand gel, gum, and lip gloss are my must haves to leave the house.

What beauty item can you not leave the house without?
