Awww Yes in April

Happy Monday, Mes Amies!
How was your weekend?
Today is our monthly round up of the things that I have bought and a totally loving this month.

These are all things that I have purchased with my own money. They are all things that I would suggest to a friend.

As always we go left to right on first the top row then the bottom row . 
Lets make a start :)





I am blown away by this! It has the hold of a medium spray. Yet, you can not see or even feel it in your hair?! How does that happen?? I really don't know, but it does!


2) Sunflower 2-Piece Set

While its still too chilly to wear this now, I bought it once our vacation was booked.

Its so pretty and comfortable.  Its idea for hot summer days. 


3) Huda Beauty Microshade Brow  

Do you suffer from 90's brow? You are not alone, millions of us do.

90's brow is a condition that many of us who lived through the 90's are now forced to contend with. Back then, we plucked our blows to oblivion and now all these years later, we are still paying the price.


4) Tocca Florence

I normally don't "share" my perfumes. Scent is a personal thing. I don't want to smell like everyone else.

I'm such a sentimental sap though, I can't resist here.

So, 3 months into dating, Chad brought me to an extremely swanky restaurant.

It had bathroom attendants and a huge array of fragrances that were free for anyone to use.

I selected one and LOVED it. It was Tocca Florence. When I saw Sephora was carrying it, I had to have it #beautifulmemories


5) Amazon Sandals

These and the next item on this list are a "tale of 2 sandals" one pair which is pricy and one pair that is very affordable, yet both equally fabulous.

This is the affordable pair.


6) Tory Burch Patos Sandal  

Obsessed is all that I can say here. I LOVE these.

They are a small splurge, true. However, Tory's things hold up SO well. A very worthy investment.


That's all for today! Have a beautiful week, babes!



XO,




 




Happy Friday, Mes Amies!

Are you ready to relax and unwind this weekend? I am. I have an awful ear infection, so please forgive me if this post is short & sweet.

Earlier this week, I watched another Wayne Goss video. That man amazes me.

His video was talking about using concealer without foundation. No, not using concealer in place of foundation. No covering your face in concealer. That is not what we are talking about here.

This is about moving toward a more natural look, not a more masked look. 

Here is the video from Wayne..




The results are amazing here. So, I had to try it.
I figured it would be a good idea to use a really good primer. I LOVE , LOVE, LOVE This One By Dior . It makes your skin so beautiful and smooth.

I decided to use two different concealers. I have horrendous dark ender eye circles. They truly are garish. This One By IT Cosmetics actually covers them fully. For the rest of my face, I used This One By Natasha Denona







I followed along with Wayne's tutorial, just placing the foundation where I actually needed color correction.


I used a damp beauty blender and blended just as if I was blending foundation.
I was pleased with the finished results.
The photo below is unedited, save for adjusting the light balance as I look it in a more dimly lit area of my office.  Also...do you like the trick I learned for making lips look fuller in the photo below? (just push your tongue against your lips)


Yes, you can see the pore on my nose. You know what though? I'm completely okay with that. I like this, more natural look 100,000,000,000,000 times better than the "real housewives/kardashian inspired" garish look. 


Watch Wayne's video. Give this a try. You just might like it!

Have a great weekend!

XO,

  







 





Happy hump day, hunnies! How is this week treating you thus so far?

I'm so happy. My hubby & I actually booked a vacation. Its still months away, but just having something on the horizon to look forward too is such a great feeling.

Also, I'm so happy because more of my favorite brands are now being carried by Sephora.

I love Sephora. I have been a loyal shopper since they first came to Boston in 2005. I've had their parent company in my investment portfolio for years as well.

Still, there are a few things in my beauty arsenals that I'd have to go elsewhere to get. Three of those brands are now at Sephora!

These brands are ones that I have been loving for years.


First up...

Oribe

Oribe is amazing. Its very high end and beyond amazing. Its smells so Devine.

My favorite product is their Shine Cream Find It Here . This makes a salon worthy blowout feasible at home.





Next up...

Paula's Choice

Paula's Choice is one of the best skincare lines out there. It has a cult following and for every good reason.

My favorite by them is a favorite of many, their BHA skin perfecting liquid Find It Here





Lastly, Color Wow


ColorWow has many products that I love. If I had to choose a favorite, it would be their Dream Coat Find It Here
This all but banishes frizz and fly-aways. You only need to use it once every 3 washes. 


I am so excited that these brands are now at Sephora. I'm so glad that Sephora actually listens to their customers wen they request brands to be carried in stores.

If you are not familiar with these brands, now is the time to check them out!


Best,
