Lately, I’ve been wearing the same shoes and accessories and using the same products. It’s not that I feel tied down to them and don’t want to explore other options. I am very content with my current obsessions. They are:
I’ve traded my summer sandals for mules. They are my favorite shoe this season and are the it shoe for spring/summer 2017. I think they are so fun and versatile. Mules are available in many colors and can add a pop of color to your outfit. Also, they are offered in various heel heights – flat mules, low block heel mules, heeled mules, etc. If you follow my Instagram, I have posted a few pictures of outfits where I am wearing mules. However, I especially love the pair I’m wearing above. They are so chic and perfect for the summer. The macrame detailing makes them a little more chic and elevated than my other pairs of mules, that are more on the casual side.
A few weeks ago, I was in the kitchen at work refilling my water bottle. One of my co-workers, who is a makeup lover like myself, walked in and I couldn’t help but notice how flawless her face looked. When she told me she was wearing a Tarte foundation, I couldn’t believe it! I have always been hesitant to try Tarte foundations based on the mixed reviews. Additionally, I’ve been so pleased with the three foundations I have been consistently using for the past few years that trying a new foundation hadn’t crossed my mind. So of course, I ordered the foundation as soon as I got back to my desk and it’s the only one I’ve been wearing for the past month. It is full coverage with a beautiful flawless finish. It stays on all day and keeps the oil at bay. I mean, can this foundation be any more perfect?! Every girl needs this foundation!
I am SO ready for Make Up For Ever to expand this range because these liquid lipsticks are seriously AH-MAZING! The lipsticks are ultra matte and pigmented with comfortable wear. The formula is lightweight, long lasting and does not crack or dry out the lips. In fact, one of the ingredients is avocado oil, which helps the lips stay soft and nourished. When I wear these lipsticks, I don’t have to reapply throughout the day. I’ll do a minor touch up after eating but honestly, I really don’t need to because little to no product comes off! When it dries, it dries evenly and does not crack. I own all of the shades and the nude shades are perfect. These are the only lippies I’m wearing these days. You can’t beat the price either – $20!
I want to discuss what hair products I use to maintain my hair color and health soon on another post but for now I will share one of my hair saviors. I have been dying my hair for three years now so I’ve definitely tried my fair share of hair products. I read about the Joico K-PAK Color Therapy Luster Lock in a magazine and purchased the travel size to try it out. I instantly fell in love after the first time I used this product. My hair is manageable and easy to detangle upon application. In addition, it makes my hair feel soo soft and amazing. It definitely protects my hair color. Every time I go to the salon, my stylist is always amazed at how good my color still looks before she does anything. I have Joico (and Olaplex) to thank for that!
I buy jewelry all year long but I’ve noticed my jewelry purchases definitely increase in the spring and summer. I have always loved statement necklaces or piling on a few to create a cool look. This season is all about big statement earrings and I’m obsessed. Recently, I got a new pair from Mango that I can’t stop wearing and I have a few more on the way from Zara and J.Crew. They add so much glam to an outfit and we all know accessories always complete the look.
