Benetton will be celebrating its new summer collection with music, discounts, and frozen yogurt to cool you off. If you’re in the area, stop by and enjoy the treats. I’ve checked out their lookbook and can promise their upcoming selection is covet-able and perfect for the balmy summer we’re inevitably headed for. Hope to see you there!
I could tell you that what drew me to today’s Favorite Find is the fact that it’s loaded with natural antioxidants like green tea and grape seed extracts. Or because it’s great for your lips because of it’s natural anti-aging capabilities. Or even because it’s loaded with essential vitamins from its aloe vera and avocado oil ingredients. But the truth is, I was just REALLY amused by the fact that it has this amazing little LED light built into the cap so that when you turn it on its side and use the handy little mirror to apply Beauty for Real’s lip-plumping lip gloss formula, you can actually apply it with precision, regardless of the lighting situation.
I knew early on that some people had it way easier than I did in the proverbial styling department. As soon as I was old enough to play with my mother’s hair and makeup tools, I began daydreaming of better-tressed days. By the age of twelve, I was begging for relaxers. Following several years of experimentation with chi’s, blow outs, relaxers, and keratin treatments, Cezanne’s offer to try their new smoothing product was a welcome invitation. Five days and two washes later, I am declaring this the good hair gene my parents weren’t able to give me in utero. I forgive you, Mom.
I like Gabriella Wimmer almost immediately upon meeting her. And not just because she’s offered me a glass of champagne to kick off our time together (though that certainly doesn’t hurt). Gabriella is friendly, approachable, and chic – qualities that should be paired together more often. But, most importantly, Gabriella is a woman who radiates confidence and self-assuredness, qualities of a woman who has fulfilled her purpose. And there’s nothing more stylish than that.
I’ve had an uncontrollable urge to clean recently. It’s been feeling a bit similar to the nesting phase I went through during my pregnancy, but spanning across all areas of my life. I spent the better part of my Sunday sifting through clothes and shoes, finding myself at the end of the process knee-deep in unnecessary clutter I’d accumulated over the years. Tops and dresses with tags still attached, shoes that had never been worn, and skirts with their pleats still intact all sat neatly piled in a bag on their way to find their new homes. It felt like I’d shed my own skin. And I’ve never felt lighter.
