Fashion Friday: Current Fave Beauty Buys

Many of you recently asked about my current favorite beauty products and so I thought I’d share those today. I tend to re-purchase only a few things because I love testing new stuff (especially when it comes to foundation, concealer, blush and mascara!) Here are the best of the best right now:

SHOP:


The deets:

  1. This lipgloss (in Red Currant) is a super sheer red/pink that just makes your lips look healthy and happy.
  2. My most fave concealer right now.
  3. I got a sample of this foundation and really like it- it’s super lightweight but covers a lot and has a matte finish.
  4. I also just finally tossed by drugstore hairdryer in the guest bath and treated myself to the Harry Josh hairdryer and it’s GREAT! Not to mention compact, light and pretty. And 20% off right now!
  5. Chanel makes such nice makeup, and this blush in Rosewood is a fantastic staple that looks fresh and natural.
  6. I’m on my second bottle of this daytime moisturizer– it feels great on my skin and has SPF 30.
  7. My FAAAAAAVE face wash. Also on my second huge bottle. Adore the smell, my skin feels clean but moisturized and it’s all natural.
  8. Another fave Tammy Fender product– this is like a mini-facial. You put it on like a mask and let it sit for 5 minutes and then wash your fact with it (it’s a fine grain scrub). Glowy skin in minutes!
  9. This handwash is luxe but smells so good….
  10. And the hand sanitizer version is insanely yummy. No alcohol smell or dryness. Awesome treat for this terrifying flu season.
  11. Such a great mascara. It keep selling out for a reason. Plus Wander is cruelty free which I love.
  12. I never use eyeliner pencils or markers- only a wet skinny angled brush and Laura Mercier cake liner (14.)  It creates the cleanest line in my opinion.
  13. This milky serum creates such a soft, glossy, frizz-free blowout.

Valentine Day Gifts

Valentines Day snuck up on me this year, and while I never make a big deal about it (much like New Years- #overrated) I do like grabbing some little gifts keeping in the theme my mom used when we were growing up– gifts must be red, pink or heart themed (This does not to apply to jewelry though, because we make the rules) :)  I’ve extended this include gifts of booze because that’s romantic right?

1. (an excuse to buy yet another striped tee) // 2. // 3. //  (these are SO good) // 5. // 6. //  (choose the heart charm to go inside!) // 8. // (comes with the antiqued trophy vase!)// 10. // 11. // 12. // 13. // 14. // 15. // // 17. (my fave pink champagne) // 18. // 19. // 20.

1. // 2. (Andrew wants this) // // 4. (another Andrew fave- and he doesn’t have a sweet tooth!) // 5. (this is HILARIOUS)// 6. // 7. // // 9. // 10. // 11. // 12. (maybe from his little lady?)// 13. (because pizza=love) // 14. // 15. 

Have a great weekend everyone!

Fashion Friday: The Resort Edit

I am loving having all these post recommendations you left in comments on my Instagram past last week!  I now have a file of things I know you want to see from me and am going to keep referencing them.  I noticed a bunch of you asked about resort wear and while I have no ability to do anything resort-y (waaaaaah! Zika! Work! Toddler!) I can dream about what I’d pack to go on a warm weather vacation.  This year I’m loving bold primary colors mixed with denim and white.  And lots of fun accessories!

Fashion Friday: Items I Reach For Daily

I was so excited to get your suggestions last night for Fashion Friday posts.  I’m going to keep revisiting the list this year and try to hit on everything you guys requested.  I’m always looking for ideas for posts- so DM me or comment any suggestions for any kinds of posts you want to see this year!

Today I’m sharing the items that I reach for on a daily basis and buy again and again or in multiples because they are such staples in my closet.  Some items are investment pieces, some aren’t expensive at all.  What matters is that they work for me and I find them to be of great quality no matter the price point.

Fashion Friday: A Universally Flattering Outfit

When I posted this outfit I wore last weekend in Atlanta a lot of people commented on how much they liked it (awww shucks guys!)  I think this silhouette of an A life skort with a bodysuit and classic heel is really a look that can flatter a lot of body types (tip: if your more petite, go for a shorter skirt but one that is still an A line and if you aren’t psyched about a fitted top, try a button down styled bodysuit instead).  Pick a fancier kind of skirt (metallic or floral) for a more formal even or a wool or cotton for daytime.  It’s a take-you-anywhere kind of outfit!  Also, this look is great with tights and booties when it’s too cold to wear bare legs!

leather skirt: eBay find- LK Bennett sample // bodysuit: Nordstrom // heels: J.Crew (similar here) // earrings: Baublebar (similar) // scarf : Cuyana

Here are two versions of this look– one for now, one for spring! CLICK IMAGES FOR LINKS!
