Having Your Cake & Wearing It Too!

Today is my birthday and I wanted to share with you one of my newest beauty obsessions! This gorgeous confetti confection is Deborah Lippmann’s Candy Shop polish. It reminds me of a pink frosted cupcake with rainbow sprinkles. Yuumm! So here’s a shout out to all my fellow Capricorns, HAPPY BIRTHDAY!

Tempt me, Temptu!

Temptu Limited Edition System

I’m going to let you in on this most amazing beauty secret ever… okay, are you ready to get your mind blown away?! Let me introduce to you the most amazing tool to add to your beauty arsenal, the TEMPTU Airbrush Makeup System! I have been searching for something to make my skin look flawless, you know just like the girls we see in magazines, but could never quite get that photoshopped perfect finish. After perusing Sephora for an hour (this is how I relax), I came across the TEMPTU display. Of course I instantly wanted to play with it! I literally stood there for hours sampling the different colors, the bronzers, blushes, and the highlighters. Not only was it super fun, my face looked AH-MAZING! It was just before Christmas so of course they had to most adorable limited edition packaging with a chic silver carrying case. I was sold. It took few tries at home to get the technique down, but after I did, it literally took minutes to transform my face into some that could be in the magazines.

Now let me tell you how the system works. The first thing you do is match your skin color using their color chart, which is pretty easy. Then you find your color “pod”. Each pod is easily interchangeable in the airbrush machine. Next, you can pick your bronzer, blush color, and/or highlighter (they have so many gorge choices!). Once you have your pod of choice loaded into the machine just hold the sprayer more or less 6 inches from your face and spray. You can adjust the airflow to how fast or slow you want the product to come out. The end result is literally picture-perfect. It’s like magic, makeup magic!

I’m so obsessed with my new TEMPTU Airbrush system and I’m so excited to share it in all its wonderfullness with you. It is a bit of an investment, but let me tell you it will change you life, promise!

“Having flawless beauty everyday doesn’t have to be a luxury!”

Daily Obsession for June 6, 2011

Marc by Marc Jacobs, Simone Dress

I apologize that I have been totally slacking on my posts lately! So, today’s obsession item I found while searching for dresses to take on vacation to Cabo San Lucas next week. I adore this longer colorful Simone dress from Marc by Marc Jacobs! It’s on trend with the mid shin length, which I love, and perfectly flowy in a light silk material. It comes with a matching silk belt that is removable if you choose. Marc Jacobs is one of my fashion lovers, and to me he can do no wrong! Pair this adorable dress with a bright clutch and a pair of espadrille wedges for a gorgeous summer ensemble.

Not Your Grandmother’s Crochet Needle

I’m sure we all have that sweater, pair of socks, or scarf that our grandmas knitted us when we were young, but this hot summer trend doesn’t come from your granny’s crochet needle! I’m loving the new hippie chic crochet style pieces in stores right now. I just received the cute neon green crochet TOMS slip-ons from their summer collection, in the mail today. They are bohemian and breezy and I think definitely obsession worthy! Check out the spring, summer, and resort collections of your favorite designers, there are most likely some crochet inspired pieces. You can find this trend in tons of different items like jewelery, clothing, hair accessories, and hats. It’s absolutely on point for summer!

Daily Obsession for May 12, 2011

The moment I saw this jacket I was obsessed! Being hot pink fuchsia, it’s an updated interpretation of the classic blazer. It has a slightly relaxed style, yet it’s still tailored for a feminine fit. Rebecca Minkoff has always been known for her edgy yet elegant handbags, though recently she has expanded her designs to apparel and shoes. My favorite thing about her pieces is that she always picks the most luxurious materials, fabrics, and textures. The Becky Jacket is right on cue being made of a sumptuous silk crepe, which is one of my absolute favorite fabrics to wear. I think this piece is the perfect little jacket for a summer night out. If you love this blazer as much as I do, you can find it at saks.com or rebeccaminkoff.com. You can pair it with a cute summer dress or even a tied silk blouse and skinny jeans.

Daily Obsession for May 9, 2011

Today I am totally obsessed with these Natalia Skimmer ballet flats by French Sole fs/ny. Not only are they made out of the softest buttery leather, they also come in every cute pastel color you can think of. They are absolutely perfect for the Spring and Summer months ahead. You can find them here at shopbop.com. The label French Sole  fs/ny, is a part of Shopbop’s newest ONE by collection. Developed as a curated collection of exceptional pieces, ONE by is home to standout items that represent the top of their categories—the very best shoes, clothing, and accessories. I think these darling pastel shoes are certainly exceptional, don’t you? You truly can’t go wrong with a simple classic ballet flat. I don’t even know which color I would choose, they are all so gorgeous!

To Tie-dye For

I can’t get enough of Spring and Summer fashion, especially the bright and the colorful. That’s why I simply die for these Bougainvillea Tassel sandals in tie-dyed tropical flower hues! They are made of soft and supple leather and the slight wedge gives them an extra oomph. I can picture myself wearing them with a flowy maxi dress or a bohemian top and cut-off shorts. You can find them here at anthropologie.com if you love them too. I think they are certainly to tie-dye for!
