Beauty Buys Under $25

29 July 2014

When it comes to a good beauty buy it's almost impossible for me to say no, especially when it falls into the budget friendly category. So over the last few weeks I've either added a few fabulous additions to my beauty closet or have been on the prowl for some serious beauty finds that have been a buzz across the web. Personally, I think by now everyone has either heard of or tried Benefit's new liner, so I'm sure you're not surprised that it's on my coveting list, we all know I love a good cat eye. As far as recent additions go, my favorite so far has to be the MD Pro Peel, it's seriously amazing - my husband said my skin was glowing - and he doesn't say stuff like that, often. And then there's Buxom's Full On Lip Polishes, I'm currently using Kimberly (Bubblegum Pink) with everything but I honestly love them all, plus you can look for your name, there's 99! 

With that being said, I'm rounding up my favorite beauty buys under $25...

Sweater + Slipdress

28 July 2014

Since we've been lucky enough to have a few chillier days this summer I've gotten the chance to throw on a layer on here and there, most recently in the form of this slouchy sweater & slip dress from Markkit. I'm kind of obsessed with the delicate sheer peek-a-boo pieces paired with a little bit of slouch, plus they're perfect for working from home and running out to a quick breakfast.

6 Rompers Under $60

25 July 2014

For me, Summer is all about easy pieces - something you can just throw on and still be put together enough to show your face, albeit possibly melting from the heat. So it's obviously no surprise that I tend to reach for one piece wonders (when I'm giving my shorts & blazer combination a break) for such occassions. Let's be real, they're easy and if done right, they're damn stylish. So, I've rounded up a few of my favorite jumpsuits/rompers under $60 to add to your shopping list for the weekend...
Dance Party Romper, $37.99 Necessary Clothing
Amore White Jumpsuit, $54 Markkit.com
Black Jumpsuit, $29.95 H&M
Belted Floral Jumpsuit, $30.99 6ks.com

Floral Moto Jacket

23 July 2014


Here I go again with the short situations, though in my defense I've been meaning to wear this {awesome} French Connection jacket since I got it on super sale a few weeks back while shopping with Gita. So, I mean there's that. Other than that the weather has been too good not to be tempted with Summer layering especially in the form of a short suit, am I right?

Alurent Anti-Aging + Instant Erasure Serum

22 July 2014



Granted I'm still in my twenties so I still have a little bit of time before my fine lines start going crazy, though I will say I'm convinced they're rapidly increasing in the crows feet department. I blame my fair skin that has been tarnished by the Florida sun for all these years, along with the added bonus of having children. Either way, I'm always on damage control and on the hunt for something to help out my ‘situation'. Enter Alurent Anti-Aging + Instant Erasure Serum, the new skincare product that tightens skin to visibly lift as it smoothest creases and wrinkles, all in 90 seconds, what?


Turns out Alurent Anti-Aging + Instant Erasure Serum is temporary injection-free alternative that quickly and effectively reduces the appearance of facial lines and wrinkles. Which in reality sounds kind of awesome if I do say so myself, so obviously I tried it, you know, after first making my husband do it. Reality, it actually works - there were definitely fewer lines, as you can see from my (lovely, you know make up free-ish ) before and after.

Here's another before and after via Alurent...

Now, I will say that it left a little bit of white residue after the 3 minutes but it easily washed off with a little bit of water, so no harm, no foul. My husband said that it felt tight on his skin but I didn't have the same issue, though I would understand that sort of effect from this type of product. Either way, I'm a fan.
