The Coveted List August 2017

What you Need This August

Summer is in full swing. Lots of fun pool parties, dining al fresco, weekends at the beach. Its my favorite season and I  am never ready for it to be over.

Although most schools here in Arizona are already back, my son starts back on Monday and I am so sad! All the other moms are always high fiving when the kids go back to school, and I am the one in the corner trying hard not to cry. I’ve been running around getting all the back to school prepping done, while organizing magazine shoots, teaching a pro makeup artistry class and prepping for some more international travel. Suffice to say it has been a busy month so far!

With my crazy schedule I hardly ever get to go to the mall or go to brick and mortar stores. I do my shopping online.

This month’s coveted list is based on items in my online shopping carts – my visual wish list!


The Rebecca Minkoff Cross Body Saddle Bag

Rebecca Minkoff Cross Body Saddle Bag

I love this bag. it reminds me of the (out-of-my-price-range) Chloe Marcie bag. The Rebecca Minkoff Cross Body Saddle Bag comes in 2 sizes, the small vanity and the regular/large size. I love the shape, I love the length that it hangs to when just worn on the shoulder, and for travel I just love that it works worn cross body. Plenty of long strapped bags don’t work when you wear them as a cross body bag. The bulk of the bag hits at the wrong place and suddenly your hips look thick or your waist looks boxy. This bag fits the body perfectly when worn cross body and also when worn just hanging from the shoulder.

I’m getting the large size, so that I can fit my glasses, camera, phone etc. I always seem to drag around far more stuff in my handbag than most people.

Rebecca Minkoff Mini MAC Bag

Another Minkoff bag that is worth looking at is the Mini Mac bag. When I travel I see this bag everywhere. It too work perfectly as a cross body bag, making it the perfect travel handbag. Both bags come in a variety of colors, so you have lots of choices to take you across all seasons.

SK-II Facial Treatment Essence

SK-II Facial Treatment Essence

Every celebrity’s favorite skin care product! SK-II’s Facial Treatment Essence is the perfect rescue product for the end of summer . It’s actually ideal for any time of year. This clear liquid is super rich in vitamins, amino acids, organic acids and minerals. It penetrates the skin far deeper than a moisturizer can, and goes to work hydrating, smoothing, clearing, and giving you an unparalleled radiance.

But don’t just take my word for it – see some of the celebs who swear by SK-II Facial Treatment Essence and read some of the very powerful customer reviews of the product here.

Charlotte Tilbury Bar Of Gold

Charlotte Tilbury Bar Of Gold

I find most highlighters to be too shimmery. When you see something frosty and flickery on the cheek bone it just looks plain crazy, and as far as I’m concerned it distracts instead of enhances. Charlotte Tillbury Bar Of Gold gives a very controllable glow to the skin. You can work magic with the cheekbones using the Bar of Gold. As we move into fall it is absolutely delicious on candlelit evenings. I like using it on the eye too, either to wake up the inner corner or to create a gorgeous golden glow. The Charlotte Tilbury Bar Of Gold sells out all the time so you need to buy it when you see it. You can find it online at

The Away Medium Suitcase

Away Travel Medium Suitcase Sand

Away luggage is the most chic thing to carry at the moment! I am in the market for a new suitcase right now, and this is the one I want. It is my most coveted thing –  look at it online everyday. The Away Traveler poly-carbonate shell is unbreakable, it is scratchproof and scuff marks wipe right off, (so it always looks chic), there is magic in the telescopic handle, the premium Hinomoto 360 degree wheels make it very easy to maneuvre through airports. And it looks really cool.

Away has 2 stores, one in LA and one in NYC. All other sales are directly through their website. By eliminating the middle man they are able to keep the price super affordable. Check out here.

OUAI Hair Oil

OUAI Hair Oil

OUAI is everyone’s favorite hair product line at the moment! I have been loving their Wave Spray this summer and now I’m going to add OUAI Hair Oil to my list of products. This is a multi purpose product. You can use it to de-frizz, smooth and control hair (hello summer humidity!) and to add shine. You can also sleep in it, using it as a night time treatment product. OUAI products are pretty high performance and they smell gorgeous too! You can find OUAI online at

The Fuji Instax Mini 70

I want the Fuji Instax Mini 70 camera so much! I’m obsessed with it in yellow.

Fuji Instax Mini 70 Yellow


When I travel I journal every day, then when I get home try to remember to print photos to go with each story. It hardly ever happens.

The Fuji Instax is perfect because it is like a polaroid (but its not Kodak), so you can print out photos on the spot. Which makes it fun as well as functional! There are a few different Fuji Instax cameras. I found the Mini 70 to be the best. In my (literally) exhaustive research over the past few weeks I found all kinds of pricing. The best deal I saw was here at where they are giving you a case, 3 packs of film (30 pics), a cleaning kit, batteries all for $105 along with free shipping.

Marc Jacobs Beauty Velvet Noir Major Volume Mascara

I love Marc Jacobs Velvet Noir Major Volume Mascara . I recently found out that this is the mascara that Adele’s makeup artist uses on her, which of course just totally gave me life! I originally received Velvet Noir Major Volume Masara in a Sephora gift bag and now am pretty obsessed. This mascara is all about making big, fat, luscious lashes.

I know the Marc Jacobs Beauty website has some kind of sale going on right now, so I’m going to order a couple of tubes to get me through the end of the year.



Insoucience 7 Secrets To French Girl Beauty

You just can’t beat French-girl chic!

Clemence Poesy Paris

Clemence Poesy in Paris for Vogue magazine

Not only do French girls look effortlessly fabulous but they never look overdone. You don’t see French girls walking around in full Instagram makeup, or Kardashian makeup the way you do in the states – they would find that incredibly gauche. Instead they look casually gorgeous. Nothing too perfect, they don’t look like they are trying too hard.
Here is the 411 on how to channel your inner French girl. (This post contains affiliate links)
Don’t bother with concealer. A little reality under the eyes is refreshing.
No heavy foundation. French girls like to see and feel skin instead of thick, caked on foundation. Find a light formula like Makeup Forever’s Water Blend Face and Body Foundation or a BB cream to subtly even out your skin.

Subtle Brows. I have yet to see a single set of Instagram eyebrows on a French girl! Use a good pencil like Charlotte Tilbury’s Brow Lift
and gently create a soft brow. Another alternative is to use a colored brow gel.
Work your lashes. Lashes are enhanced but not caked on. Get a great mascara like Clarins Supra Volume Mascara from, and build out a good thick fringe of lashes.
Add a little liner and you are good to go.

A red lip. Maybe it’s a little clichéd but why not rock a bold red lip? I probably see more French girls sporting soft, glistening yet barely there glosses than big red lips, but why not own the town in Charlotte Tilbury Hot Lips in Carina’s Love?

french beauty brigitte bardot

Iconic Brigitte Bardot

A striped T. I’ve never met a stripe I didn’t love. Your inner French girl is craving the ultimate Parisienne-chic striped tee, and you can find it at where the t-shirts are fashionably cut, the fabrics are beautiful, the stripes are perfect, and the look is quintessentially french!

Throw and Go Hair.

Clemence Poesy hair

French girls look so perfect by not being perfect! Hair that is slightly mussed, that looks a little thrown together is perfectly Parisienne. The cut is always perfection, the color is subtle but gorgeous – no platinum blondes or trashy Barbie blondes.
Think Clemence Poesy instead of Pamela Anderson.
