Time to talk new products!
Time to talk new products!
EEEk! Summer is officially here!
The weather this week has been absolutely gorgeous in Connecticut! It has taken everything in me not to ignore my responsibilities + just lay out to catch some color! (more…)
Getting through the winter months unscathed can be a challenge – especially when it comes to keeping our bodies moisturized. Come December, I have a handful of products that I C.A.N.N.O.T live without.
[Note: this is not some fancy/schmancy list of over-priced, regularly-seen-on-celebrity-instagrams, don’t-actually-work-that-well-but-are-the-“it”-products-of-the-moment. These are actual items that I own & genuinely LOVE!]
Check them out 🙂 …
I truly enjoy making resolutions! I love the sense of commitment and enthusiasm that they provide at the start of the new year. I’ll admit, I have been a bit ambitious in the past, vowing to complete A, B, C, D, E, F, G, etc. etc. but this year, I’ve decided to keep my resolutions – or goals, if you will – simple. It’s all about taking on one small change at a time, no?
This year I’ve decided to take one thing head on – skincare.
I think it’s time to start addressing this “getting old” thing. While technically, I am a bit late in the anti-aging game, I’m considering myself early. This year is all about good products, facials, and avoiding the sun!
I do take good care of my skin, but I’m ready to take it to the next level. Someone recently recommended that I try No. 7 skincare products. After their rave review, I did my own Google search & was quickly sold. I picked up the Protect & Perfect Intense Skincare System at Target for $50.
I also (per recommendation), placed an order for Country Life Maxi Hair Time Release (hair, skin and nail) vitamins.
I tried Sephora’s Phytophanère hair, skin and nail vitamins, but wasn’t thoroughly impressed. I went through a full bottle – a 3 month treatment – before deciding not to continue. The Country Life tablets have wonderful reviews, so I’m excited to try them!
In addition to my two new products, an increased intake of water, fruits & veggies is obviously going to be a must.
I’ll post my thoughts on the No. 7 skin treatment and the Country Life vitamins once I get a good feel for them.
I hope everyone has made a resolution or two for the New Year!
There’s no time like the present 🙂
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!
