Southern Living’s Beauty Must Haves

There was an article in the September Issue of Southern Living that was about the top 10 Beauty Staples that have stood the test of time plus 10 new products to try out! I love beauty products so when my roommates Mom sent her this article with all of these fun goodies I immediately got nosey and started digging in to check them out! Even though these aren’t my items I still wanted to share these amazing beauty products with y’all because I think it’s beneficial to all women no matter what age. I can say that I do own a few of these products and they are most definitely the best products I’ve ever used. I can’t find an online resource though about this article but I promise I listed below all the products that are in the article (staring at it as I type).

My Favorite Essie Colors For Summertime!

It’s no lie when I say I’m addicted to nail polish..especially Essie. I have over 200 bottles of nail polish, which may seem weird..but to me it’s like having my own salon in my bedroom! My favorite season for nail polish colors is summertime. It makes my fingers feel so bright and happy..very reassuring (crazy to think that nail polish could make someone feel that way–but it does).

I am going to admit that I was very shocked to see how dark Essie’s Summer 2014 collection was..granted they just did the Neon 2014 collection which I ADORE, but the one thing that drives me crazy about the neons is having to put the white under it. I love wearing white alone though!  Anyways, I loved two of the colors for summer out of the collection..the rest reminded me of fall!

So I figured I’d share with y’all my personal favorites to wear on my fingers and toes during summer

What’s in my bag?

Want to know what is in my bag? Take a peek…

Emi- Jay Hair Tie } { Essie Nail Polish } { Your Pad Or Mine Ipad Case } { Gigi New York Iphone Case } { Louis Vuitton Mon Monogram Neverfull } { Louis Vuitton Key Pouch  } { Louis Vuitton Checkbook } { Henri Bendel Cosmetic Bag } { Lilly Pulitzer Agenda  } { Kate Spade Wallet } { Sour Patch Kids Gum } { Stila Stay All Day Liquid Lipstick in Beso } { YSL Rouge in Encre Rose } { Ray- Ban Aviators } { Pomy Eyeglasses  } { Lululemon Headband } { Aquaphor } { Bitch Gum }

I swear my neverfull is like a never ending pit..hence the name “neverfull”. The amount of things I can fit in my bag are unreal, but let I’ll tell you what,  it does get heavy, real fast! All of these goodies are things I can’t live without. My agenda, iPad, and iPhone are something I use daily and I hate to say it, but my life is in each one of those items whether it’s appointments, emails, or social media to help me stay connected with my blog.

The next thing I can’t live without is my Lululemon headband, my hair is short and it’s not easy to tame unless I blow it dry everyday, so when I’m in a rush or having a bad hair day I always put on a headband – I have about 10 different colors. You can’t forget lip gloss, or nail polish when you have a chip and of course, sunglasses and gum for bad breath!

What’s in your purse that YOU can’t live without?

I’ve told y’all before and I will tell y’all again..I absolutely adore a comfy dress! This chevron dress has been in my closet for a few years and I still love it. It’s perfect to put on whenever you are in the mood to be comfortable and you can easily dress it up or down! I dressed it up here because I was in a fancy mood plus I was dying to wear my new Nine West heels! Happy Monday!

To me, a classic look stands out more than one that screams for attention. This nude vegan leather top gave me the right amount of simplicity but still says I have good taste!  And once again, another green item to add in my closet, and of course, it’s  Gigi New York!

Hope y’all are enjoying my new set up!

March Madness

March Madness
bag / studs / lipstick / lotion / skinnies / ipad case / ring / sandals / bikini / wedges / nail polish #1 & #2 / clutch / sunglasses /
It’s time for me to start preparing for Spring Break, and if you haven’t noticed I have a thing for green bags! I’ve been using Jergen’s Natural Glow every other day to build up my tan and it really does work, I’m not lying! Mac’s Candy Yum Yum lipstick is a must pink for spring, and will be on my lips! I will also be wearing Essie Blanc on my fingers and Bikini So Teeny on my toes, with a great pair of wedges or sandals!
Happy Spring Break Season!
