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.

Stuff I’m Into: Cozy Fall

I can’t believe October is right around the corner.  This is my absolute favorite time of the year. (Sorry if I’ve said that 100 times already. 🙂 )  I thought I’d share with you some ways that I’m getting all cozied up for the season. Cashmere and Suede.  I finally splurged and treated myself to this Charter Club cashmere scarf!  This one can be used as a scarf or a shawl.  I’m pretty sure that I’ll be living in it this Fall and Winter.  I also love a classic pump, especially if it’s suede so these BCBGeneration pumps were a must …

Stuff I’m Into: 4 Current Beauty Favorites

I recently stocked up on a couple of beauty products so I thought that this would be a great opportunity to share them with you (before the containers get dirty from my makeup covered fingers).  I’ve also got a couple of new favorites.  🙂 Bare Essentials Well Rested Eye Brightener.  I’ve been using this brightener for years.  I use it under my eyes (obviously), but I also use it on my nose and around my lips.  Take that face shadows. Yves Saint Laurent Gloss in the color called Nude Carat.  I just bought this new lip gloss last week and …
