In Review: Physicians Formula’s Argan Wear™ Ultra-Nourishing Argan Oil Blush

01 September 2015

Because my skin is so fair I almost always opt to add a little color to my cheeks to give me the illusion of a more rosy glow, regardless of the time of year. More often than not I struggle to find the right pigment for my coloring or find that some powdered blushes give a strong matte finish instead of blending into my skin’s tone and texture. It’s almost like I swiped a paintbrush across my face, which is less than cute anywhere outside of Halloween. A natural glow is key.

So, I’ve found myself more and more partial to Physicians Formula’s Argan Wear™Ultra-Nourishing Argan Oil Blush in Rose. The lightweight, creamy formula infused with 100% Pure Argan Oil treats skin with ultra-nourishing ingredients and delivers a healthy glow as if you escaped to Morocco. Faux vacation skin? I’ll take it.

For me, the Argan Oil makes all the difference in the texture of the formula and application process. It goes on smooth and I’ve found that just a little bit goes a long way. Plus it doesn’t hurt to have some skin improving benefits as well, as Argan oil has been found to improve skin’s brightness, tone and texture (It’s also great for hair!). I’m personally enamored with rosy hue and the light-reflecting pigments that give the illusion of a lit-from-within glow. Truth be told, when it comes to Physicians Formula I’ve never met a product I didn’t love, but you already know this...

Neoprene Crop Top + Monday Mingle

31 August 2015

We're already fully aware that I can't resist a crop + midi pairing, I'm convinced it's the way things should be. So, when I found these amazing cropped tops I felt like it was a bit of a game changer for me. I want to wear them with absolutely everything, all the time. Also, they were only $10 a pop, and they feel super luxe (love neoprene!}. The white one is perfect paired with this midi skirt that I've been hiding in my closet because I couldn't find 'the right' shirt to go with it. Problem Solved. 

I'm guest hosting Monday Mingle this week with Bon Bon Rose Girls, Thirty Something Fashion and MomTrends, link up and say hey to everyone!

Watermelon Raspberry Lime Pops

30 August 2015

I don't know about you guys but I'm just about ready for fall. Sure, summer is slowly wrapping up and starting to cool off, but it's still pretty warm here. Which is probably why I've found myself looking for ways to cool off without having to indulge in ice cream or iced coffee.

So, when I ran into Zico last week at the InStyle Summer Social I decided to get creative with their new coconut water flavors, I personally love the Pineapple & Watermelon Raspberry. Since I'm a fan of frozen treats I opted to try my hand at popsicles with the Watermelon Raspberry flavor and the addition of real watermelon and a dash of fresh lime juice. The end result? Perfection. 

If you're new to the Zico brand, each serving contains 5 electrolytes (magnesium, sodium, calcium, phosphorus, and potassium - as much as a banana) and their coconut water is sourced directly from 100's of coconut farmers in Thailand, Indonesia, and the Philippines, most of which have been family owned for generations. Plus it has has zero fat and zero cholesterol and is gluten free. 

Watermelon Raspberry Lime {Coconut Water} Pops
1/2 Cup Zico Watermelon Raspberry Coconut Water
1/2 Cup Watermelon, Cubed
2 Tbsp. Fresh Lime Juice

In a blender combine coconut water, watermelon and lime juice until smooth. 

Pour into popsicle molds and freeze for 4-6 hours (or until solid).

Fall Beauty: Smokey Eyes For Now & Later

27 August 2015

This post is sponsored by Target
When it comes to makeup, you’ll almost always see me with winged lined eyes. It’s easy, ultra flattering on my eye shape and works with just about everything in my closet. But every now and then I find myself wanting something new and looking to the fall 2015 runways for inspiration and I found it: perfectly blended smoky eyes paired with mauve hues. Light enough for everyday wear and easily layered for a night on the town.

So, for this month’s Target Beauty post I’m transitioning my makeup from summer to fall with subtle touches of color. Using exclusively PIXI products, I’m creating two looks: one for now and one for later.

For the first look I wanted something feasible for the day but, still had the pop of color that I was loving from the fall 2015 beauty reports. I went for a light, smoky eye using the first two colors from Pixi Mesmerizing Mineral Palette in Plum Quartz. You start with the Pixi Illuminating Tint & Conceal in Light Glow. The moisturizer in the tube squeezes out to provide buildable coverage, and then you can pop open the cap to use the full coverage concealer sitting inside. 
After blending, I pulled out the Pixi Mesmerizing Mineral Palette and gave my lids a good swipe from the top color (#1), blended, and applied another swipe. Next, in the crease, I built up definition with the second color (#2) and a slightly deeper purple (#5), lightly blending in between applications. Finishing the look off with two coats of Pixi Lash Booster Mascara and a swipe of Pixi Shea Butter Lip Balm in Natural Rose on my lips.

For later, I built up my smokey look with deeper hues from the Pixi Mesmerizing Mineral Palette in Plum Quartz (#1, #2 , #3 & #5 ) and with a precision brush dipped in water, lined my eyes with #6.  Applying 2-3 coats of Pixi Lash Booster Mascara for bold lashes and a swipe of Pixi Shea Butter Lip Balm in Natural Rose on my lips  and apples of my cheeks, {lip balms are always great for double usage!}  to complete the look.
Voila! Fall ready makeup looks for now and later.

The Blue Dress

26 August 2015

Guys, this dress. This amazing dress.

I stumbled upon it a couple of weeks back while shopping for this Burlington post. I was giving the racks a once over before heading out when I spotted the print and quickly pulled it out, practically ripping it off the hanger. Even better it turned out to be a Diane Von Furstenberg "Fluerette Dress" and was on clearance for $44.  How is that even possible? I was convinced something had to be wrong with it so I started to put it back on the rack but talked myself into at the very least trying it on. Turns out it was in perfect condition, my size and begging to be brought home with me.

Obviously, I had to. Hello, it's perfect.

The shape, the print, my wild hair - it kind of just all falls into place.
