My Wishlist








Hello, beauties!  How excited are you all for gifting (and getting!) some great new beauty gifts this coming holiday?  I can definitely tell you I am and Sephora is ready to make your holiday wishes come true.  When it comes to new beauty and scoring your faves with huge savings, Sephora gets it right.  In fact, their Beauty Insider Event is coming up later this month and it will be the time to scoop up all the beauty must-haves and craves you will want to get and give this holiday.  

In anticipation of all that, I have put together some ideas to help get that gorgeous gift list going.  Each of these is a new beauty item that you and they will love.  Each is from a tried and true brand whose product line I already love and I've added in one new brand that I'm excited to try out.  

So, let's begin with a familiar favorite...Charlotte Tilbury.  I never know where to begin when it comes to this iconic line.  The day it hit Nordstrom I was giddy with such pleasure, haha.  Her colors just speak to me and I also love how she step by step shows you how to create so many gorgeous looks.  Her palettes are designed to work together to achieve the desired effect you're looking for and individual colors can stand alone as well.  I think we all love her shadows if we've tried them before and this gorgeous new collection is no exception.  I mean...who wouldn't love absolutely beautiful in these shades?  And, the words 'pillow talk' have taken on a completely new meaning of their own.  If you've tried the lipstick and liner duo you know what I mean.  Now, I'm looking forward to trying out this new set.  

The eyes have it when it comes to quick makeup looks and maybe you're more of a shadow stick girl.  Laura Mercier has yet to disappoint me and I have a feeling these pretty pencils are going to keep the good  going.  If you're in a hurry or just like an unfussy yet still finished look, shadow sticks are what you'll want to reach for.  They are soft and blendable and very hard to overdo.  They also make it easy for you to get done in a hurry while still looking your beautiful best.

When it comes to some lines I love and am always devoted to Marc Jacobs, Kérastase and Dr. Lancer are three I will always shop for.  I fell in love with Marc Jacobs Beauty after one use of this lash primer.  If you've never tried it, your lashes are begging you to do so, haha.  No matter what kind of lashes you were given, this primer will have you looking like a natural doe-eyed beauty.  I want to give this gel liner a try next.  Kérastase has a new night serum I can't wait to discover.  If your skin reaps the benefits, why not your hair?  And, you all know of my love affair with Dr. Lancer and I think this set will be the perfect way to introduce a few friends to him too.

The much-hyped Rare Beauty line seems to be worth a look too and this liquid blush looks like it would be so very pretty.  Any of you, who are fans of this type of formula for flushing your cheeks, already know what a natural, ethereal glow from within look it can give.  But, a few key requirements must be met.  They are color, blendability, staying power and pigment.  Let's see how this one stacks up.  

Finally, Dae haircare products have become new favorites of mine.  This hair oil will be every girl's dream.  Pick up a bottle for your sister or bestie and watch how her hair will glow.  And, everyone needs a great hair brush.  Morrocan oil has always been a great source of hydration and this brush will be just what we need to take it from roots to tips.

Ahhh, so much to look forward to when it comes to new beauty right now.  I can't wait to see what else Sephora will have in store.  Be sure to check back at the end of this month when the Insider Event begins. I'll be sure to have more pretty presents for you to enjoy!

Hope everyone is having a great Friday...Happy weekend friends!

Classic outwear is such a closet staple come this time of year.  Whether we're talking about a chic little blazer, biker style moto or belted coat, there are so many fun and well-styled ways to wear them.  Today I'm highlighting one of my favorites, the wool trenchcoat.  Now, not only is this a gorgeous piece, when you turn to it in the color navy, all bets are truly off.

For whatever reason, navy blue never seems to get its due love or admiration.  Perhaps, a lot of us really do enjoy this color and it doesn't need a lot of bells and whistles.  Or maybe it is just naturally a quiet classic.  Either way, I do adore it and that is why I've chosen to design several ways to wear it here today.  

Okay, so since this is a classic coat, it is quite fitting that we first put together some classic, dare I say preppier, pieces to first go with.  This sweater has been seen here before.  That in itself is suggestive of a tried and true piece that pays you back with each wear.  And, with every great classic sweater comes the perfect partner...a flattering pair of jeans.  Is it just me or has denim gotten really, really good (make that great) lately?  I suppose that is a whole other post but I digress, haha.  

So, jeans are such a wonderful partner in crime to nearly every look there is.  Whether it's an autumn take like this one or a springtime feel of a t-shirt and sneakers.  Jeans always work.  And work well. This look is no exception.   

The navy wool coat agrees and the proof is right there in the lovely way these few simple pieces take things down that classic cobblestone road.  Simple stripes, neutral colors and a pair of classic sunglasses make for quite an effortless look.

But, there are days when we may want to change the vibe up a bit and happily, this coat can handle that.  So for example, you may find that you're in the mood for something a little more sporty, say a comfy hoodie perhaps. This one is ultra-soft and I may want to warn you that once you slip into it, you may find yourself not wanting to ever take it off.   That's okay really, because like I said, this dream coat doesn't care.  It's up for almost anything.  

I love the look of a hoodie peeking out from beneath a great trench. And black denim always takes the lead role once again in bottoms here with this look.  Then when it comes time to accessorize, I think that a fun little beanie (love this one), a classic check scarf and a sporty crossbody round out the whole look.  Of course, these sneakers are one of my favorite pairs.  I love them so much with so many of the looks I enjoy creating.  And I just happen to think that they work wonders with this autumn outfit above.

And there you have it.  Two ways to wear this gorgeous gem of a coat.  If you all fall in love with it as much as I already have, please let me know and I'll be happy to suggest more ways to wear it.  
Thanks friends and have a wonderful Wednesday!

Happy Monday!  Recently, I've been getting a lot of questions about the  best pieces to invest in when you want to create a simple and chic closet that works overtime to curate classic looks all season long.  So, today I'm putting together the key pieces I personally love and reach for during the fall and sometimes all year round.

Number one on my list is a camel coat.  While this staple can have the reputation of coming with a steep price tag, that isn't always necessarily true.  Luckily, there are options to suit every price range when it comes to this beautiful coat.

Now, if you live in a warm climate where this cozy layer is simply not an option then I'd be reaching for yes, you guessed it, the blazer.  This iconic piece will take you everywhere you need to go and will effortlessly work with everything you own whether casual, classic, edgy, sporty or elegant.  It is one piece that has stood the test of time and can work in every wardrobe regardless of your personal style.  

With a gorgeous coat or jacket at the ready, it almost might not even matter what you're wearing underneath because the jacket will steal the show!  But, of course, we want to keep the look going.  So, I always love having an assortment of solid, neutral-toned sweaters to play with.  You know how much I adore my neutrals and honestly, they never disappoint.  This charcoal turtleneck is so perfect for right now and would layer beautifully under that camel coat or look fantastic paired with trousers or jeans.

Speaking of which, both well-made trousers and classic denim are two other ways to extend the mileage your basics afford you.  Sweaters, shirts, blouses and cardis all love them and easily pair with either to make for a beautiful, casual look.

Last, shoes and accessories are left to round out the look.  So, for me, I love investing in a classic flat, a trending pair of sneakers and a dressier ankle boot.  When I have all these options at the ready, I can then very easily mix and match them with all the pieces in my closet to create a variety of looks to suit my current mood.  A leather tote is a must-have for me as it also works with so many of the looks I find myself creating.  And finally, a classic, warm and comfy scarf will always tie a look together while adding a much-loved sense of style.  

And that's it.  I find that these pieces always work to keep me happy and have never let me down.  How about you guys?  What are the pieces you love most when it comes to creating multiple easy looks?  I'd love to know!

Hope you're all enjoying a gorgeous Monday!  Have fun!

  One look at gorgeous Jamie O'Banion's face and my immediate thought was, "I have to have her skin!" I mean from taut and toned to hydrated, plump, and bouncy (not to mention absolutely flawless and glowing) there is nothing I wouldn't do to emulate that kind of beauty.  

  Lucky for us, it turns out, this is an easy little fix. Of course, you could spend tons of money on Upper East Side top doc visits, schedule weekly treatments and spend all your hard-earned cash on procedures you may love or live to regret. But, no need to sell out your soul. The way to get the glow is to grab this incredible little tool known as the BeautyBio GloPRO Micro Needler.

 I, of course, had heard the hype and even might have thrown an eye roll or two while listening to the claims and promises on this one but for whatever reason, probably Jamie's firm and fascinating complexion sans makeup mind you, I gave it a try. And out of all the drawers and cabinets I have filled with beauty must-haves, this is the one product that is my ride or die.  Yes, it's that life-changing, haha.

  But seriously, investing in less than five minutes a day sessions three times a week has given me such incredible changes I can see and feel when I look in the mirror. This is coming to you from a girl who had tried everyyyyything to get the glow and has never, ever seen results like this. Ever. My skin has gone from good to great in what is literally seeming like an overnight sensation.

   I promise you that after using it yourself, for less time than it would take to get an appointment with that elusive derm doc, all your family and friends will be wishing they had one in their hot little hands.  

  So, as a skincare lover and sometimes skeptic, I had to know what made it so effortlessly effective. The key?  It is in the combination of the microneedles and their ability to rejuvenate the skin combined with the red light therapy.  By gently and safely "injuring the skin" you are allowing your otherwise slowed collagen production to instantly ramp up and get your skin to act like it did when you were a kid and too young to appreciate all that poreless perfection. What that means is that unlike traditional exfoliation via scrubs or chemical peels, etc. microneedling is instead vertical exfoliation for the skin. Each time a needle passes over the top layer of your skin, it is safely creating vertical microchannels into the skin. These tiny channels allow your skincare products (like these game-changers I wrote about here) to actually penetrate as opposed to simply sitting on top of the skin. And, they signal the regeneration process, aka the increased production of collagen, which is what gives your skin that bounce, firmness and overall smoothing effect we all crave.

  I've been using mine at nighttime on freshly cleaned skin. It's as easy as dividing your face into four sections that you focus on. Right top, right lower, left top, left lower. Spend two minutes rolling your GloPRO in three directions (horizontally, vertically, and diagonally) across the section you're working on. Then move on to the next area. Yup, that's it. Follow it with your favorite serum (which your freshly needled skin will absolutely drink up.  I love this one) and get ready to glow tomorrow. I actually noticed a glow right away but that is my skin's way of letting me know it's been woken up. You can even feel your skincare seeping in and working afterwards. And, the real results come in the morning, haha.

  And that's it. I know, nothing in life is that simple. But, this is. I promise you that you will thank me. And your future face will do that every single day. What could be better than that? We live in a beautiful world.  If you'd like to learn even more be sure to check out Beauty Bio's site here.

Have a wonderful autumn weekend everyone and thanks for sharing part of it with me.

Good morning, Wednesday!  I think it's going to be a beautiful day and part of the reason why is because you hopefully set the tone for gorgeous beginnings when you woke up and looked in the mirror today.  Loving what you see staring back at you is such an important part of every day.  And no, not in a narcissistic way, but in the sense that you are happy with what you see and proud of the results your skincare efforts have made.

As a self-proclaimed skincare enthusiast (aka beauty junkie) I can tell you I love nothing more than trying new products, testing out their claims and letting you know if they are worth your precious time and hard-earned money.  Because let's be honest...none of the pretty things are cheap and when it comes to investing your cash you really want to get it right.  

So, let's take a moment to talk about a skincare line I'd been eyeing for a while and finally took the leap and giving it a try.  Before I do, I have to ask this question.  Has anyone gotten a glimpse of Candace Cameron Bure lately?  We loved her as DJ Tanner.  I follow her Hallmark movies somewhat obsessively, haha.  And now she is the face of, the once exclusive to celebs brand, Lancer skincare.  Let me say that as a brand that sells skincare if you're going to have a celebrity endorse your line, you may really want it to be her.

I can do the math and tell you that this girl is Benjamin Buttoning it at light speed.  Yes, she literally appears as though she is gracefully aging in reverse.  Her skin is bouncy, plump, hydrated and simply glows even while watching her from the lighting of her own home.

Surely, I thought, this requires a closer look that I, and all of you, need to take and possibly benefit from.  So with that, I pulled the trigger and bought into the Lancer: The Method three-step system to see for myself if results anywhere near what I was seeing could possibly be duplicated.

Fast forward to three months and several empties later and I am here to share with you all that yes, the results are real.  So much so that I am currently able to go makeup-free (and sometimes actually do!).  My skin has undergone a beautiful transformation and feels smoother, softer and way more hydrated than it ever did before my discovery of this brand began.

Now, there's always more to any story and that is true for this one as well.  Yes, the products are most definitely that good.  But, I have to be completely honest and tell you that I've been coupling them with another product known as the GloPRO, which has hands down increased the effectiveness of this regime as well as any other you may be using.  That, however, is a story I will happily be sharing with you in an upcoming post so stay tuned as it is not something you will want to miss.  

Okay, so back this three-step regime.  I have to think...has there ever been a skincare routine that only consisted of three steps? Ever?  Not that I can remember, leastwise not one that produced results let alone the phenomenal improvments I've seen already.  They are quite simple and include The Polish, The Cleanse and Nourish.  You may notice that the order of those three seems transposed.  They're not.  Traditionally, skincare lines have outlined the clean, scrub, treat step by step guide but Dr. Lancer has put polishing the skin at the top of the list.  He explains that far better than I do and you can read more about the hows and whys of it here on their website.

Next, you're simply left to rebalance, rehydrate and treat your freshly washed face or as the Lancer line says, nourish.   The little jar of goodness is the perfect drink of skin cushioning ingredient which my face now simply craves.  Yes, it is that good.  Let's just say the marketing team knew what they had their hands on when they named it.  Even with the cooler days we've been having, my skin is completely happy with this one.

Now, while you can simply stick to this three-step program and be completely happy, I wouldn't feel right not sharing this next item with all of you.  Caviar Lime Acid Peel.  Yes, the first two have me looking forward to date night and the last sound like nothing I'd ever want touching my face but I can tell you that they all form the absolute BEST skincare cocktail I've ever tried.  And that is saying a lot.  This effectively infused cream combines acids and retinol to create a gentle exfoliation that takes away literally everything you don't want on your face and reveals the most beautiful baby skin that you haven't seen in years.  All that and it smells like the sweet breeze of a delicious girlie cocktail, no lie.


The combination of these dream creams has impressed me so much that it was to the point I had to let you know.  And, if you've been following me for any length of time, you know it takes a lot for something in the beauty world to truly impress me.  I'm difficult like that, haha.  

I definitely do encourage you to give it a try if your skin needs some rejuvenation or if you just want to switch up your current routine.  If you do try it, please let me know.  I love success stories!  Hope everyone is having a wonderful week.  Thanks for sharing this bit of it with me!

Fast forward to three months and several empties later and I am here to share with you all that yes, the results are real.  So much so that I am currently able to go makeup-free (and sometimes actually do!).  My skin has undergone a beautiful transformation and feels smoother, softer and way more hydrated than it ever did before my discovery of this brand began.

Now, there's always more to any story and that is true for this one as well.  Yes, the products are most definitely that good.  But, I have to be completely honest and tell you that I've been coupling them with another product known as the GloPRO, which has hands down increased the effectiveness of this regime as well as any other you may be using.  That, however, is a story I will happily be sharing with you in an upcoming post so stay tuned as it is not something you will want to miss.  

Okay, so back this three-step regime.  I have to think...has there ever been a skincare routine that only consisted of three steps? Ever?  Not that I can remember, leastwise not one that produced results let alone the phenomenal improvments I've seen already.  They are quite simple and include The Polish, The Cleanse and Nourish.  You may notice that the order of those three seems transposed.  They're not.  Traditionally, skincare lines have outlined the clean, scrub, treat step by step guide but Dr. Lancer has put polishing the skin at the top of the list.  He explains that far better than I do and you can read more about the hows and whys of it here on their website.

Next, you're simply left to rebalance, rehydrate and treat your freshly washed face or as the Lancer line says, nourish.   The little jar of goodness is the perfect drink of skin cushioning ingredient which my face now simply craves.  Yes, it is that good.  Let's just say the marketing team knew what they had their hands on when they named it.  Even with the cooler days we've been having, my skin is completely happy with this one.

Now, while you can simply stick to this three-step program and be completely happy, I wouldn't feel right not sharing this next item with all of you.  Caviar Lime Acid Peel.  Yes, the first two have me looking forward to date night and the last sound like nothing I'd ever want touching my face but I can tell you that they all form the absolute BEST skincare cocktail I've ever tried.  And that is saying a lot.  This effectively infused cream combines acids and retinol to create a gentle exfoliation that takes away literally everything you don't want on your face and reveals the most beautiful baby skin that you haven't seen in years.  All that and it smells like the sweet breeze of a delicious girlie cocktail, no lie.


The combination of these dream creams has impressed me so much that it was to the point I had to let you know.  And, if you've been following me for any length of time, you know it takes a lot for something in the beauty world to truly impress me.  I'm difficult like that, haha.  

I definitely do encourage you to give it a try if your skin needs some rejuvenation or if you just want to switch up your current routine.  If you do try it, please let me know.  I love success stories!  Hope everyone is having a wonderful week.  Thanks for sharing this bit of it with me!
