New Series: Monthly Amazon Lifestyle Favorites/January

I frequently post my favorite items on my social media sites, and get a lot of interest from them, so I thought that I would make it easier to see them all in one place! I am an Amazon Prime lover and since a LOT of the items I love and purchase time and time again are from Amazon, I decided to just make this post strictly Amazon favorites. You DO have an Amazon account, right? If not, what are you waiting for?? The prices are good, items ship fast, and they come straight to your front door!

Norpro Coffee Warmer

I use this coffee warmer every morning while I am getting ready. It keeps my coffee at the perfect temperature!

 

Viva Paper Towels

Paper towels may seem like an odd item to list as a fave, but these are worth it! Trust me!!

Cuisinart Popcorn Maker

Quick and Easy! We have popcorn every Sunday (and some days in between)!

Bememo Moisturizing Heel Socks

I use these moisturizing socks every time I give myself a manicure and pedicure. Sometimes I will even sleep in them, if needed.

NEW PINK YETI LIMITED ADDITION - Personalized Yeti Tumbler - Engraved Yeti Rambler - 20 oz Yeti - 30 oz Yeti - Personalized Yeti - Yeti Gift - Laser Engraved Yeti - Yeti Tumbler - Yeti Cup …

Personalized Pink Yeti

I carry one of these cups around on the daily!  I fill it with water, lemon, and sometimes lime.  It helps me meet my water goals and it fits in the cup holder in my car!

Tyler 64oz./Half Gallon Glamorous Wash - Diva

Tyler Glam Wash

Oh my gosh!  If you haven’t tried this laundry detergent yet, you HAVE to!!  It is on the expensive side, so I mix one to two cap fulls with my ALL Free & Clear detergent.  It leaves the most wonderful scent on your sheets, towels, lingerie, and whatever else you want to use it on!!  A must!

Heart Leaf Philodendron - Easiest House Plant to Grow - 4" Pot - Live Plant

Heart Leaf Plant

I LOVE decorating with LIVE plants, although, I do use silk or faux plants some, too.  I used to be terrible at keeping plants alive, but have learned through trial and error.  Now I know what plants I have luck with and which ones I do not.  This heart leaf plan is super easy to care for and doesn’t need tons of sun.  This vendor sends a “care” sheet with this plant.  

 

Papermate Flair Pens

These are my favorite pens for journaling and paper planning.  They do not bleed and come in super fun colors!

 

I hope you find as much happiness from these items as I did!  Please share some of your Amazon favorites, too!

My Holy Grail Skincare Products

If you know me, you probably know that I am a stickler for taking care of my skin.  My mom taught me at a young age (thirteen, to be exact) the importance of proper skin care and boy am I glad I actually took that piece of advice!!  As the years on the calendar pass by, I can honestly say they have been good to me.  My skin, in my opinion (and hopefully in yours, too), does not look it’s age.  There are two main skincare products that I can credit for that.

Today, I am passing them on to you in hopes that you will gain the same benefits from them as I have.

Holy Grail Product #1 – Skinceuticals CE Ferulic

Shop SkinCeuticals C E Ferulic at LovelySkin today.

Vitamin C should 100% be a part of your anti-aging skincare routine.  This particular formulation, by Skinceuticals,  reduces free radicals, firms skin, and increases collagen production.   Vitamin C should be used each morning (skip evening with this product) and it is the first thing I apply after my toner – which I will discuss next.   This CE Ferulic serum is on the expensive side at $165 a bottle, but it lasts for several months and it is SO worth it.  I haven’t found another vitamin C product that gives me the same results as this one.  I purchase it from Lovely Skin and I even have a 15% off coupon code for you – Save15

Holy Grail Product #2 – DDF Glycolic Toning Complex

DDF Glycolic Toning Complex

Glycolic acid is the other MUST in every anti-aging skincare routine and my favorite glycolic product is the DDF toner.  This toner gently exfoliates, refines pores, diminishes lines and wrinkles and encourages cell turnover.  After washing my face I apply this toner followed by the CE Ferulic serum every morning.  I, of course, complete my routine with an eye cream and daytime moisturizer with SPF.  I also use this toner in the evening followed by a skin oil instead of the Vitamin C and daytime moisturizer.  Again, I purchase this product from Lovely Skin and it is $43.

When I found these two products and began using them with each other I can’t tell you the changes I began to see in my skin.  The fine lines in my forehead are MUCH less pronounced, my pores are smaller, and my once extremely oily skin has leveled out.

If you take my advice and use these products, please report back to me!!  I know you will love the change in your skin!!

Also, if you have any holy grail products that you think I should try, please share them in the comments!!

Thanks for reading!

CRUSHING for Fall

Well, can you feel it??  Fall is in the air and that means pumpkin lattes, falling leaves, and a warmer wardrobe!  As most of you know, I enjoy adding a few essential items to my wardrobe each season and this time I wanted to share them with you.  I hope you enjoy!

Jo Malone London™ Wood Sage & Sea Salt Cologne

Yes!  Perfume should be part of your wardrobe and I love this one by Jo Malone.  This larger size is a bit pricey, but they have a smaller version that is comparable to most other high-end perfumes.  Here are the notes – It smells amazing!!  I have already purchased it!

-Top: bergamot, ambrette seeds, buchu leaves.

– Middle: sea salt, mineral accord, dry fruits.

– Base: driftwood accord, guaiac wood, white musk, sage.

To purchase go to Jo Malone or Nordstrom.

Topshop Katrina Buckle Ballerina Flat (Women)

Until very recently I ALWAYS wore high heels (how many of you can attest??), but with children heels are not always feasible!!  I have been searching for the perfect flats, because I prefer myself in heels.  They are elongating and make me feel better about myself and my outfit.  Anyway, I am considering trying these for fall.  What do you think?

These are by TopShop ($68) and can be purchased at Nordstrom.

Oversized Crossover Top

You may just see me in this super cute, oversized sweater from Anthropologie!  I love the comfort that comes with oversized shirts and they look great on all figures.  It’s all about creating the right silhouette for your body type.

You can purchase this top here.

Slide View: 1: The Essential Slim Trouser

Red is one of the hot colors for fall so these cigarette pants would be the perfect addition to your (my) wardrobe!  AND I can wear them with the TopShop flats if I decide to get them!

You can get them at Anthropologie.

Product Image: City Slicker Opal Necklace

I LOVE interesting jewelry and am always a sucker for a cool necklace.  This one follows all of the upcoming trends – choker, gold, and precious stones!

Free people

Main Image - gorjana Power Stone Bracelet

A gorgeous semiprecious-stone beaded and adjustable bracelet that promotes positive vibes – What’s not to like??  This is already in my shopping basket!

Get yours at Nordstrom.

Main Image - 1.STATE Rida Studded Bootie (Women)

These have my name written all over them!  I am SO crushing on them!!  Two things are holding me back – the price ($148) and the real leather (I am trying to limit the amount of real leather I purchase because I care about the animals).  I want them…anyone know a vegan leather shoe that is similar??

I WANT!

Main Image - Leith Grosgrain Cold Shoulder Top

I love cold-shoulder tops!  They add the right amount of interest to any outfit and they look good on everyone!  Shoulders are sexy!!

Get your sexy on!

I hope my crushes have inspired you to start getting your closet ready for fall!!  What are you crushing on?

A Few of My Favorite Beauty Products

From an early age, my Mom taught me how and why skin care is important.  I remember her teaching me the proper way to cleanse my skin and, eventually, teaching me how to apply makeup.  That is where my love for makeup and skincare began!  I have continued to play with and test new products as they come out in stores and I thought that I would start to share my opinions with you guys.  I hope you like this post!

Below are a few of my favorite beauty products.  I’ll call this my March Favorites!

  Freeman’s Facial Polishing Mask (Charcoal & Black Sugar)-  This mask is an exfoliating and detoxifying mask.  I use it every Monday and Friday morning.  I used to apply masks in the evening before bed, but I have discovered that my makeup goes on more smoothly and my skin appears healthier when I apply my mask in the morning.  If you try it, let me know your opinion!  You can purchase this product at Walgreens and most drugstores.

 

 Signature Club A Inhib-A-Line – I use this product once a day and in the morning, after toner and before my moisturizer.  It is supposed to lessen the appearance of lines (I have forehead lines that are beginning to bother me a bit), and I feel as though this serum has definitely done what it says.  My line isn’t totally gone, but it isn’t as deep as it was and I feel as though this product has stopped the progression of the line.  You can purchase this on Amazon or QVC.

 NYX Dark Circle Concealer – If you have dark circles under your eyes, I definitely recommend this peach-colored, correcting concealer.  The peach counteracts the blue/purple tone perfectly!!  I typically apply this concealer and then apply  a creamier one on top, blend it out, and finish with a powder.  You can purchase this concealer at most drugstores.  I got mine at CVS.

NYX Jumbo Eye Pencil in White Frost – I like all of these eye pencils, but the white frost one is my fave!!  I use it as a highlight for the inner corner of my eyes.  (If you don’t highlight the inner corner of your eyes, I totally recommend it! It immediately brightens your eyes, as well as, you entire face!)  Below is an example:

 

 Buxom Lip Glosses – I must admit…I am a sucker for lipstick and lipgloss!!  I probably have one lipstick for every day of the year!  EEEK!  I can’t believe I just admitted that.  Anyway, these buxom lip glosses add shine and plump a little, too.  Don’t worry, though, the plumping ingredient doesn’t burn or sting, it simply cools.  The Buxom line has something for everyone, whether you prefer sheer, matte, dark, or light.  You will find it!

What are some of your favorite beauty products right now?  I would love to try something new!

Thanks for reading!
