Gearing Up For Summer

IMG_2133xx

As I gear up for summer (and my vacation to Mexico), it becomes standard that the hunt for summer-proof beauty items begins. This summer, I’m rediscovering the CoverGirl LashBlast Volume mascara. I’m not partial to waterproof formulas as it is too harsh on the lashes. This formula lengthens and provides volume and doesn’t require multiple coats.

I also picked up the Olay Total Effects 7 Featherweight Moisturizer. I picked it because it provides moisture, includes a broad spectrum SPF 15 sun protection, and in addition to the multiple anti-aging benefits, it promises to be lightweight, quick-absorbing, and weightless. Definitely a winner in my book since I can’t be bothered with heavy creams on my face during the hot summer months!

What are you loving for summer that’s new to your beauty arsenal?

As a beauty and style blogger, you know this girl can accumulate quite a fair few treasures. I also have hoarding tendencies, but thanks to my husband’s suggestion and the power of the Luxury Managers via the White Glove service at The RealReal, I’ve managed to select a few treasures from my collection that IRead & Comment →

Jouer Perfume Oil

Recently Jouer sent me their Perfume Oil–and basically, it is genius. It involves a rollerball perfume (a concept we all know and [most of us] love–for its portability, convenience, unobtrusiveness, and value). But instead of an eau de toilette variety as is typically the norm for rollerball editions, this involves a perfume oil. The concept is genius,Read & Comment →

Splurge or Steal: Contour Kits

I know it’s not completely the biggest save of the century here, but I thought I would share with you a new discovery — the Anastasia Beverly Hills Contour Kit which everyone raves about (and was brought back months after being sold out everywhere) is a balmy $40 of cold hard cash. But what ifRead & Comment →

St. Patrick’s Day Treat Cups

I found these amazing parfait-like kid-friendly treat cups on Pinterest, and, being the kid that I am, I couldn’t help myself. I had to make them. I made sure to document the whole process so you could see how easy it is to recreate! I cannot take credit for the idea as I found thisRead & Comment →

Currently: Bedside Table

When it comes to Spring cleaning, I actually totally dread it–but after I’m done, I’m so glad I forced myself to endure through the odious task of chucking out the old to make way for tidiness. I have a horrible habit of accruing things and never putting them away in their proper place. To getRead & Comment →
