Living in New England, we have the luxury of experiencing four completely different seasons. While I’m definitely not one to smile at the thought of snow, I must admit – in some weird way, I do look forward to it every year. Each season means something different to me, and last year I began a few traditions to fully embrace each one. However, my main rule is no jumping the gun! Meaning, it may finally be September, but if I’m still wearing sundresses & sandals – it’s too early for a pumpkin spice coffee & apple picking!
With that said, it is inevitable that Summer is slowly coming to an end, and I’ve begun cleaning out my closet, bedroom, and my makeup drawers to prepare for all of the amazingness that is Fall! In doing so, I’ve come across quite a few empty products that served me so well this season, and I wanted to share! So without further ado, here are some of my…
Phew. That seemed like quite the list, but I was really impressed with each and every one of these products!
Have you tried any of my Summer Faves? What products were you loving this year? Let me know! 🙂
Just what we need in the midst of this chilly Winter – a bright (and colorful) light at the end of the tunnel… Spring polish collections! Most major brands have announced their lines, but I was anxiously awaiting one in-particular. 🙂
My preferred Gel brand, Gelish recently released its “Love in Bloom” line for Spring 2013, and it looks fab!
The six bottle collection features a palette ranging from warm pinks and oranges to cool greens and purples. It’s honestly difficult for me to choose a favorite! I am looking forward to trying them all – Sweet Morning Dew, Garden Tea Party, and He Loves Me He Loves Me Not are definitely at the top of my list.
Fall is one of my favorite times of year…the colors, smells, food, and fashion- to die! Not so lucky for us on the East Coast, this Fall has been aggressively interrupted by Hurricane Sandy, and most recently this friendly little Nor’easter named Athena. While my state, and town are currently buried in fresh white snow, I wanted to bring it back and remember that regardless of what we may feel…winter is not here yet!
To help get back in the mind set, I picked out some of my absolute favorite things about Fall 2012 thus far- enjoy!
Those are just a few of my favorite things this season! What are you loving about Fall this year? Let me know 🙂
I’ve had an obsession with brown/nude lips lately and have been picking up a ton of different products to achieve the look I’m craving! I’m really happy with what I found and wanted to share 4 of my favorites with you:
1) NYC City Proof “Gold With Me” 460:
2) NARS Female Trouble:
3) NYC Smooch Proof Lip Stain Never Ending Nude 492
4) Rimmel London Lasting Finish By Kate Lipstick/Rosseto
I’ve been using these products religiously for the last couple of weeks. I recently Instagram-ed this pictures of the NARS gloss:
I really like all of these products! I’d have to say that my absolute favorites are the Rimmel Lipstick and the NARS gloss. The NYC gloss is probably my least favorite…there’s a little too much shimmer for me. The good news is that most of them are definitely affordable and can be found in nearly any drug or beauty store.
Let me know if you have a favorite nude lip product!
I was so excited to participate in my first blogger swap this past week! Huge thank you to Danielle over at Framed Frosting for setting everything up 🙂
The blogger that I was assigned to was Sami! She blogs at Sami’s Shenanigans and seems like such a sweet girl, we actually have a lot in common (including a chihuahua names Lily LOL) which made shopping for her even more fun! She wrote a sweet reveal post today about everything I sent to her, I’m so glad she liked what I picked out- make your way over to her blog to see! 🙂
After reading Sami’s reveal post, I see that she sent a package to Ashley who blogs at The Sweet Life who happened to be the lovely lady who sent a package to ME! How ironic is that?
I really loved what Ashley sent to me, check out everything in the big reveal below …
I had a lot of fun participating in the swap- it was a great first experience, and I hope to do another in the future!
Have you ever participated in a blogger swap? What was the best thing you received?
