The Kisser!

Kiss Mix by Eve Lom

Shout out to my doll for introducing me to this lovely lip balm.  It is uber creamy and melts into your kisser in the most divine way.  It has a subtle minty tingle and is so moisturizing!!!  There is a hint of pearly sheen that makes lips look lit-from-within and I hear it’s lovely layered over lipstick.  This formula acts as a moisture mask and keeps lips nice and protected.

Loving Lately…

A navy blue smoky eye with these 2 products from By Terry: 

The pencil is in “royal navy” and it’s an electric blue for sure.  I lined eyes top and bottom with it, wriggling it into the lash line as close as possible.  It ends up tinting the roots of your lashes blue and really makes eyes pop.  I followed this up with the ombre blackstar cream eyeshadow stick in “blue compassion” – this is a more muted shimmering navy blue that I LOVE.  I blended well into the crease and used a bit over top of the royal navy liner.  I finished the look by blending all of this with my favorite sheer beige neutral shadow to kind of tone things down.  I wouldn’t exactly say it’s an office appropriate look but it is fab for holiday parties and going out!!  Plus, if you eliminate the electric pencil – the navy and beige is very elegant.  To keep the focus on the eye, I stuck with my signature nude/light lip by using By Terry’s new Gloss Terrrybly Shine in “floral paradise.”  This gloss is the smoothest, softest, most comfortable and lovely lip gloss ever.  I cannot wait to pick another shade!

Go see my friend Carmen (if you're in Nash) at Private Edition to create your own holiday look!!!

Here are admittedly not the best pics of me wearing the look before a dinner party last week, but you get the idea!!

The holidays are upon us!!!!

Peeps, I’ve abandoned you!!  I just got back from a long weekend at the Ritz Lodge at Reynolds Plantation where I enjoyed some much needed R & R with my boys and some solo spa time!  Scroll to the end of this post to see some fun shots from the weekend!  But, don’t fret, I’m back in full effect to guide you flawlessly and beautifully through your holiday season.  Just joking, I’m a train wreck with hair that hasn’t been washed in 5 days and I’m a total stress ball just knowing the holidays are upon us.  

Fear not though, I have been shopping (what else is new??) & I will let not you down!!

First, Kerastase, this stuff is liquid gold:  

I don’t really know how to put into words what it does (admittedly neither did my stylist) but, it makes everything smoother, healthier, & just all around better.  It is AH mazing.  It literally binds split ends and repairs damage instantly.  Plus, like all Kerastase stuff, it smells fab too.

Second, Stella McCartney lingerie from my friend Emily’s shoppe, Beloved Intimates:

I recently scooped up this duo:

I just feel better about myself in pretty underthings post baby – even with my far from perfect post baby bod.  This pretty bra peaking out from under a tee, tank, or blouse is just perfection.

Third, Moroccan Oil hand cream.  A perfect stocking stuffer or nice little gift for a friend.  It’s creamy not greasy, melts into skin and leaves dry, parched wintery skin feeling hydrated and refreshed.

Fourth, Goldsign Jeans

Mine came from my fav Nash store -- http://haudrey.com/

Hmm… How can I describe these… they feel like cashmere, they are uber form fitting yet the most comfortable pair of jeans I’ve tried on thus far in my life… I do not lie when I say I could sleep in them.  They also make me look skinnier and more leggy than any other jean I’ve ever tried.  This is a bold statement – I speak the truth.  Buy them!!!!  I’ve become a life long devotee.
