skincare_to_try_now

Every so often, I get the urge to indulge and play guinea pig to some new beauty products. As you might remember, a few months ago, I was all about buying and trying different foundations. Before that, I was obsessed with finding the mythical “perfect primer”. Now, ladies (and some gents), I’ve become fixated on skincare products.

This latest fixation may or may not be in part to me wanting to obtain perfect skin for those lazy days when I just can’t get the energy to slap on a few layers of makeup and seize the day. Still, I’m itching to try some new skincare for those self-imposed, but completely deserved lazy days.

So, here are some beauty/skincare products that I’m yearning to try…NOW!

  • Stila One Step Correct – A 3-in-1 serum with that moisturizes, tones, and primes to achieve to look of perfect skin…with or without makeup.
  • Bliss Triple Oxygen Facial In A Box – Facials are everything and my current bi-weekly luxury. However, they can get a little pricey. So, giving my self a bliss facial…for only $12 a pop is more than reasonable.
  • Peter Thomas Roth Pumpkin Enzyme Mask – Pumpkin Enzymes are great for exfoliating and treating dull and aging skin.
  • Boscia Konjac Cleansing Sponge – The change in weather is causing my combo skin to be more on the dry side and look dull. So, I’m very intrigued by this brush that not only cleanses the skin, but also exfoliates and hydrates the skin.
  • Algenist Genius Ultimate Anti-Aging Melting Cleanser – I love a good melting cleanser. The feel of the makeup dissolving and gently sliding off your face is one of the most amazing, self-indulgent things you can do in the bathroom.

The different styles have made them really versatile and appropriate for more places, including work. Check out a few that I’ve found and love!

I’m swooning hardcore over this See by Chloe clutch. The Kim Foldover tri-color clutch is can be worn as a luxe oversize clutch or unfolded to a roomy handled tote. Not to mention, the neutral tan, peach, and black leather makes this bag pretty much outfit perfect all year. I’m seriously in love!

MICHAEL_MK_hooded_trench

Every season, there are just some items that you pretty much have to have in your wardrobe. In the winter, you need a simple and chic pair of black boots, spring don’t mean a thing without a crisp white dress you can wear anywhere and anytime, and summer isn’t summer without the perfect swimsuit for your body type.

Well, when it comes to fall, your wardrobe can’t be labeled “fall-friendly” unless it has a trench coat hanging around. There are so many different styles, silhouettes, colors, and more for trench coats. However, one to have you classic belted and button-up style in a classic tan and/or black and MICHAEL Michael Kors makes the perfect trench coat one for many shapes and sizes.

This trench has the classic shape, belted cuffs, and single-breasted has the traditional details that your first trench should possess. Plus, it has a detachable hood and is perfectly priced well under $150 and on sale at Nordstrom. So, go get one so you can complete your fall wardrobe.

Halloween_bloody_nails_main

With Halloween right around the corner, most people are just now deciding what costume to wear for costume parties and/or trick-or-treating with the kiddos. However, there are some of us who don’t have a reason to dress up, but would still like to participate in some way, small or large, in Halloween.

One of the ways I like participate in Halloween is with my nails. Usually, I use a bright orange and/or black, but that has become very boring over the years. Enter, nail art! One nail art design that has peaked my interest in the past couple of years is ‘bloody nails’. I’ve always wanted to try it, but never got around to trying it out. However, I’m ready this year.

Here are some polishes that will help you attain this look and design.

The look of “bloody nails” might be a little too gore for some, but there are couple ways you can try this trend that can be more cool than creepy. If you are interested in trying this or some other nail art designs for Halloween, you should check out my Pinterest board for Halloween nail art ideas.
