NAILED || PART TWO

Julep Freedom™ Polymer Top Coat

I’ve had two weddings in the past month so I did two back to back GEL manicures. If you are not familiar, while GEL manicures last 2 to 2 and a half weeks they wreak your nails or at least they leave my nails paper thin and unattractive. So I just took off my GEL a few days ago and went back to regular polish. I mentioned my favorite base and top coat by Sephora, called Sephora X a few weeks ago, but another GEL alternative just came across my desk that is 4-Free and claims to do the same thing, which is give you gel like shine and super staying power of your manicure aka less chips. So since I love green alternatives I thought I’d give it a whirl. Read what I thought after the jump.  Read More

Currently Obsessed with…

LEPEN FOR KATE SPADE SATURDAY PENS

 

I’m generally obsessed with Kate Spade Saturday as a whole, those design your own weekender bags have got my heart racing. But I do love a good fancy pen, especially in bight yellow. Le Pen collaborated with Saturday to create these awesome bight pens, I love Le Pen in general and the fact that while being bright yellow the ink is black makes me even more obsessed.

LIGHTEN UP!

Metallic Triangle Print Cosmetic Pouch

I think its safe to say that a lot of women (and men too!) have this problem– which is that they carry too much unnecessary shit in their everyday bag. I never think I do this, that is until I travel and I cram everything in my purse into one of my carry-ons. Traipsing through the airport it all becomes abundantly clear, I am a purse hoarder. Over the weekend I traveled a ton, by plane, by car and by train and I got stuck in a flight delay/cancelation 24 hour debacle and with all of the magazines I bought to pass the time my bag weighed a ton. When I got home and unpacked I realized I had four cosmetic bags in my purse–complete over kill.  Read More

WASH AWAY YOUR SINS: PART II

First Aid Beauty Face Cleanser Review

Ever since it started really feeling like summer my face has been super acting up. I mentioned yesterday about my bachelorette weekend celebration which was spent with a friend of mine who is a skin care expert. I told her my woes which are basically this: I wash my face with cleanser and it feels super tight, so I put on oil, serums, and moisturizers and then my face feels heavy and greasy and gross, so I wash it again and the cycle repeats. After this conversation she recommended switching up my cleanser in favor for something more soothing, gentle and non-stripping.
