Fall Beauty Refresh

Happy Friday!  I’ve shared some of my beauty favorites with you and I thought I’d give you an update on what I’m currently using.  The timing is perfect because it’s fun to refresh your look for the upcoming season. Most of my routine has changed, with the exception of the Aveeno moisturizer and Smashbox primer which have been my go-to products for years.  I mix the moisturize with the Farsali Rose Gold Elixir oil. The Armani luminous silk foundation is my newest favorite beauty product.  It’s a little pricey but a little goes a long way so it will last a long time.  Plus, …

Winter Beauty Must Haves

It’s very important to me to take care of my skin, especially in the winter time.  Winters in CT can be cold and dry so scrubs and moisturizers become my best friends. Here is a list of my winter beauty items.  You may recognize a few of them from previous posts (and maybe even previous years). Let’s start with the lips.  I mentioned recently that I just started using Kiehl’s Lip Balm #1.  I love this stuff.  On some days moisturize is not enough so I use Bliss Fabulips Sugar Scrub.  I’ve been using this lip scrub for over two …

New Things

It’s a new year and I’ve got some new things that I’m really loving.  Of course I must share them with you. New planner.  A new year means a new planner.  I wanted something more sophisticated than my 2016 planner so I chose this weekly leather planner from Gallery Leather.  I was so excited when I found it.  I almost felt like I was 10 years old picking out new folders for the new school year.  My husband points out that virtually no one uses actual planners anymore since everyone has smartphones.  I’m old school and I like the zen …

Lazy Morning Essentials

There is something comforting about waking up on a crisp Fall morning knowing that you don’t have any plans.  If I don’t have to rush anywhere, I love cozying up on the couch with a blanket and hot cup of coffee. Here are a few of my favorite things that I enjoy on these lazy Fall mornings: Pajamas.  Cozy pajamas are a must-have this time of the year.  Of all the ones that I have, I love the pajamas from Old Navy the best.  They have a great selection and you can’t beat the prices.  I do recommend buying early in the season …

Stuff I’m Into: Eye Lashes

Today’s post is a little different than my usual “Stuff I’m Into” post because I’m focusing on beauty.  I’m a girly-girl when it comes to make-up and beauty thing so I’m surprised that it’s taken me this long to share one. I love make-up, but I’m especially into my eye lashes.  I want them as long and thick as possible (without resorting to fake lashes, which I’ve never tried).  After years and years of trying stuff, I’ve finally found a routine that works for me.  I’ve been following these steps for about six months now and I’m lovin’ my lashes. Vitamins. …
