The Coveted List April

The Coveted List April 2017

Don’t you just love spring?? I adore it.

I’m getting ready for an enormous amount of overseas travel right now. I have 3 Glam Italia Tours kicking off in late May, and before that I’m going to Belize on a makeup job, so every thought at the moment is all about travel, what to pack, what to wear, how to feel chic. With that in mind here is my April 2017 Coveted List. The anchor piece is this gorgeous pink denim jacket from J Brand. Don’t you think it’s amazing???

jbrand pink denim jacket

 

J Brand Harlow Distressed Denim Jacket in Teaser. How perfect is this color?? Spring never looked so good! I am totally obsessing over this shell pink denim jacket. The cut is super chic too. This is a jacket that you can wear all through spring and summer. Obsessed. I found this on online at Revolve.com

stuart weitzman slideaway

Stuart Weitzman Slidealong Loafer Mule in Bisque Suede Flat mules are huge for spring! This Stuart Weitzman mule looks killer with a cropped jean, a skirt or a dress. It’s the perfect shoe for the season! Find it at Nordstrom.com

diptyque roses

Diptyque Candle in Roses. The medley of roses used for the fragrance are exquisite. This candle will leave your home redolent with the scent of an English garden in June. It’s fresh and beautiful and absolutely the candle for spring! I found this one on Space NK.com

 

Canon Selphy

 

Canon SELPHY Portable Photo Printer. I journal every day on vacation, and always wish I had a portable printer so that I could instantly print pics and glue them into my journal. Most portable photo printers seem to only offer 2×3 prints. This canon SELPHY prints 4×6 photos. I found it online at BestBuy.com

charlotte tilbury facial tanner

Charlotte Tilbury Overnight Bronze And Glow Mask You just cannot beat a golden glow for spring and summer! This overnight mask not only gives you a glorious bronzed beachy look, it also hydrates your skin and makes your complexion glow. I haven’t tried this one yet, but Charlotte has never let me down, so I have full faith that it’s fabulous! Find it online at CharlotteTilbury.com

chloe carlina

Chloe Carlina Oversize Round Glasses. I have been looking everywhere for oversize round sunglasses. I found these 62mm round sunnies at Nordstrom.com. I’m not sure that there is an extraordinary amount of glare blocking in these glasses, but there is 100% UV Protection. And they look sooooo cool!!

reves de sabine lip balm

Reves de Sabine Petal Lip Balm Sabine’s handcrafted all natural products are organic with no parabens, no synthetic ingredients, are not tested on animals and are incredibly lovely. Her company is based in Ventura California but ships everywhere. You can find her at RevesdeSabine.com

tatcha water cream

The Water Cream by Tatcha. I absolutely love Japanese luxury brand Tatcha, and have written about them many, many times! Tatcha just came out with The Water Cream, a super hydrating, oil free, anti aging moisturizer that is just glorious for oily and normal skins. My skin is dry, but when I go to humid places I switch out my heavy moisturizer for something light and airy that still packs a power punch of nutrient rich botanicals. If you are oily or if you live or travel to humid places then you will understand how important it is to have skin care that leaves you looking poreless and fresh!

The Fabu-list August 2016

 

What are you coveting this month?

Summer is nearing it’s end, and although every year I hang on for as long as possible, it’s time to start thinking about the transition into fall.

I’ve made this list a fabu-list instead of a coveted list, because I do own some of the items. But I do have a major covet going on the others…

Clockwise from top left:

Miansai Screw Cuff Bracelet in gold. I love that this bracelet is sleek and chic, and stands out as being different. You can wear it in a stack of bracelets, or in complete simplicity on it’s own.

Reves de Sabine bath and body oils. I have both of these and absolutely love them. Your skin feels amazing with these beautiful oils, and I’m convinced that they are extending my tan from Italy this past June. They feel luxurious but come at a very friendly price point. Read about Reves de Sabine here.

Prada Tote  Isn’t this just the perfect tote for fall? It’s very roomy, the color is gorgeous, and it has a very Olivia Pope feel to it. I so want this bag!

Charlotte Tilbury Hot Lips in Kim K.W. is the perfect pinky nude for the entire year, not just fall. Inspired by  Kim Kardashian West’s signature nude lip it has already become a best seller, and no doubt will stay one. It’s just perfect.

The Michael Kors block heeled Marina slingback sandal is about as perfect as it gets. Killer with a pair of jeans this shoe elongates your leg with a little black dress, works with skirts, pants – basically every single thing in your closet. Love.

Paris In Love by Eloisa James. I’m always in love with Paris, so I grabbed this book as soon as I saw it! Eloisa up and moved her family to Paris for a year. I dream about doing that myself, and I love reading anything set in the city of light, so this book was a win before I even opened the cover.

And it’s a perfect read to close out the summer.

Chanel Illusion d’Ombre eye shadow in Rouge Brule. You absolutely cannot beat red and gold eye shadow. It may sound intimidating at first, but it is absolute magic! Want to really spark your eye color and draw attention to your eye without overwhelming it with makeup? A subtle swipe of red gold on your lid is your absolute best friend. This eye shadow is everything!

The Na Kd off the shoulder knot blouse in white is super chic! The sleeves are gorgeous, the knot detail is so stylish, and the back of the blouse has a little something extra to cover your booty.

This blouse is lovely with a skirt, killer with a pair of jeans and a tan block heeled sandal, great with a pair of pants. It’s fabulous.

Chanel nail gloss in Rouge Radical. I love the concept of a red see-through gloss instead of a full red nail polish! It’s so fresh and modern.

How To Prolong Your Summer Tan

Summer is coming to an end, and for the most part vacations are over for the season. If you’re like me you’re maybe not quite ready to trade in your tan for jeans and boots and winter pallor. If you’re like me you want to get every last day out of that tan.
So you need a game plan, and I’ve got one for you.

6 Steps To Prolong Your Summer Tan

1. Cool Showers

Hot water dehydrates your skin and speeds up peeling and flaking.
Turn the temperature down and avoid high lather soaps and shower gels which just strip the extra moisture out of your skin, instead choose something super gentle.

Ren’s beautiful Moroccan Rose Otto Body Wash is super hydrating, skin calming and frankly, pampering. It has won the InStyle Magazine Best Body Wash 9 years in a row! You can find it online at Space NK

2. Exfoliate

It sounds counter-intuitive, right??? But part of the key to keeping the tan nice and glowy is to keep it smooth. Gently exfoliating your skin every couple of weeks gets rid of the dead skin cells that are dulling up your tan and helps you to keep whats left looking gorgeous.

Tata Harper Smoothing Scrub micro polishes your skin and has all kind of glorious ingredients that give it a boost of hydration and make you feel luxurious. You can find it online at Space NK

3. Moisturize.

Moisturize. Moisturize. Moisturize. To keep that tan alive you need to upgrade to a serious body balm or body oil. I’ve been obsessing over these fabulous body products from Reves De Sabine all summer long. The Bath and Body oils are glorious,

and the Dream Body Balm is a serious body balm. If this doesn’t save your tan nothing will.

Both are available online at Reves De Sabine

4. Drink Water

The key to keeping hydrated is to keep drinking water.
Every cell in your body needs it, every organ needs it, and your skin is the biggest organ on your body, so feed your tan with plenty of extra H2O

5. Fake It

As the color does begin to fade give it a little boost with some self tanner.

St Tropez self tanning products give beautiful, believable color. They’ve been best sellers for years, and never let you down.
You can find them online at Nordstrom

6. Wear White

A great trick to keep looking tanned is to wear white next to your face. When its time to throw on jeans again, pair them with a crisp white shirt, some bronzer and a pink glossy lip. It will make you feel good too!
