Spring Nail Color!

24 Mar

Spring has sprung and I’m sharing my favorite bright and cheery nail color with you guys. The color is Lounge lover by Essie and is a pretty peachy/coral hue.essie1 It’s not overly bright in a tacky way, it’s actually very feminine and pretty. It also looks amazing on all skin tones.  Shop Essie polish HERE.

Note: Tart deco and Shop til I drop are very similar to Lounge Lover

Happy spring:)

Perfect Summer Palettes!

3 May

Every year Spring/Summer rolls around, I get so excited to use my bolder and brighter lip colors, eyeshadows and blushes! There is no better time to incorporate beautiful color into your makeup routine. This Spring/Summer Lorac released 2 great colorful palettes that are sleek and perfect for travel as well as reasonably priced at $24. Both palettes feature 10 shimmer and matte shadows which include 2 oversized neutral shades allowing countless color combinations. The palettes are quite similar, so if you can only afford one, don’t worry!  One palette (After Glo)does feature some brighter colors than the other palette (Summer Glo) which you will see in the pictures below! It is just a matter of taste and whether you want to remain more on the “neutral/colorful” side or the ‘bright/colorful” side.  Either way, these palettes are PERFECT for summertime and are So pretty!

There are pieces for everyone including separates, dresses, shoes and accessories. Mark your calendars now, seriously!  February 10th is the day this 80+ piece collection will hit your local Target stores!

The Original Stylish Crossbody Bag

1 Nov

Since the original Cambridge Satchel was introduced in 2008 it’s been a cult favorite among the fashion crowd, bloggers went absolutely crazy for it. The academic silhouette a la book bag style can be dressed up or dressed down and the cross body style is perfect if you need your hands free to shop etc. It’s a perfectly stylish mom bag for that reason.  Made in the UK, these bags come in a variety of sizes and colors including metallic, neon and pastels. I consider this bag a MUST HAVE in your collection.  The Cambridge Satchel Co.  has a variety of bags available and they also have a great clearance section that includes bags with slight flaws that are noted.

 

 

Cambridge bags are very reasonably priced and very well made bag (usually $120-$220) If you don’t already own one of these timeless bags, I suggest you make it happen. You will be glad you did!

 

…but don’t you fret if that’s out of your budget……Steve Madden makes a very similar buckled bag for about half the price and it’s on sale at Nordstrom!!!!! YAY!
