The holidays are in full swing over at my household! We actually took our annual family holiday photos the other day (our neighbor happens to be a professional photog so we get amazingly stellar shots every year!) and I just loved this shot of me and my adorable new puppy Jasper and I just had to share it with all of you! Plus, I also think this fab photo totally captures my sparkly, festive, glam holiday look really well and I want to tell you more about how easy and affordable it is to create your own holiday look.
This holiday season, I have partnered with P&G and Walgreens along with Stylist Tim Gunn and the upcoming People’s Choice Awards (PCAs) to share a few beauty products that will help you snazz up your look this holiday season (which we are calling #OnMyWay2 Fab)
I don’t know if you have stopped into your neighborhood Walgreens lately, but I have and I was pleasantly surprised by the vast array of fun, inspired and high quality beauty products that they have in this drugstore. Following are a handful of some of the great new products that you will find at your neighborhood Walgreens which will help you feel more fab this holiday season:
One of my favorite things about being a beauty blogger is that I have the opportunity to test and try out all sorts of beauty products and tools and then share my favs with you. In all honesty, while I get to try many products, I only consider a minority RAVE WORTHY and those that pass my finicky test are the ones that I share with you on this blog.
My latest RAVE WORTHY beauty product is the ghd Limited Edition Classic Mint 1” Professional Candy Styler ($199) made in the UK but luckily available stateside. This adorably chic styler was inspired by the old retro sweet shops filled with fun eye catching colors in the good old days. The Limited Edition Candy Styler Collection features the ghd Classic Flat Iron in three super cute candy-like colors: Mint, Lemon and Violet. This top notch styler is made with state-of-the-art black plate ceramic heat technology to straighten, smooth or create curls and waves.
Where does the time go? Summer is rapidly coming to a close (boo-hoo) and Labor Day is upon us this weekend, so I wanted to squeeze in one last end of summer post and share some last minute recommendations of the summer. Hope you enjoy and make sure to take a moment to soak up these last morsels of summer before it rides off into the sunset.
Custom Design Your Own Pair of Sunglasses at Made Eyewear I’m kinda obsessed with Made Eyewear! This fab website allows you to design and customize your own glasses starting at just $84! The site has a great selection of sun and optical frames made with top quality materials that allows you to easily design a frame that fits your style and taste. There are tons of possible combinations of shapes, colors, and laser etched designs to choose from. I LOVE my Orange and Turquoise Maggie Frames, that I snazzed up with a floral etched design on the arms and Romy Raves printed inside. Chic & Stylish!
Get Rid of Your Unwanted Dry Summer Skin & Bring On the Suppleness
- Daily Concepts Your Exfoliating Gloves ($18) This is such a great idea, I wonder why someone didn’t think of it before now! Well, kudos to Daily Concepts for designing these fab exfoliating gloves with a label with indicator that fades when it’s time to replace your gloves. And as an added bonus the packaging comes with a suction cup so you can store the gloves in your shower. Be gone dry skin!
- One Love Organics Chamomile Aromatic Body Serum ($39) After a thorough exfoliation, my body cries out for mucho moisture and One Love’s Aromatic Body Serum has been my go-to hydrator this summer. This yummy oil mist is made with an emollient blend of organic plant oils like Pumpkin Seed Oil, Supercritical Sea Buckthorn Oil and Chamomile which all help hydrate, nourish, rejuvenate and calm dry skin. LOVE!
