Happy Friday!

I hope you all had a good week!  It’s been a busy few weeks for me so I apologize for my lack of posts!  Spring Break and A LOT of school events has taken up a big chunk of my time.  Today my kiddos don’t have school and the rain in St. Louis finally let up (seriously I think it’s rained for a good 5 day straight!).  The sun came out today too so I was happy I got to take my sweet puppy Mr. Henry for a nice walk this morning.  I wanted to share a few of my favorites with you like this dress that I bought to wear on Easter from the Loft.

Unfortunately the temperature for Easter where I live are going to be the 30’s with a chance of snow (boo hoo) so I guess I’ll have to throw on a sweater too!

I also picked up a new self tanning mousse from Ulta since I’ll be wearing a dress this weekend and my skin could use a little hint of color!  It has really good reviews so I decided to give it a try.

I have fair skin so a choose the medium shade, but it comes in a dark shade also.  This mousse has such a light scent that I couldn’t even smell it 10 minutes after I applied it & spread really easy.  I used this mitt to apply it…

This is my first time using a mitt to apply self tanner and I have to tell you I really liked it.  Overall my experience with this self tanning mousse and mitt were great and I would definitely recommend it.

I picked up these shoes to wear with my dress…

These shoes are really cute and I think I’ll get a lot of wear out of them-they come in a few other colors too!

Okay, now I’m off to put together my girls Easter baskets and head to dinner.  I hope you all have a great weekend.

Spring Dress Picks

So last week I shared some of my favorite tops from LOFT for Spring and today I wanted to share a few of my favorite Spring dresses from LOFT.  They have so many new dresses that I had a hard time narrowing it down, but I did!  What I really like about the dresses I’m sharing is that they are really versatile.  They can be dressed up with strappy heels and even a sweater OR they can be paired with a denim jacket and sandals for a great daytime look.

Lacy Floral Flare Dress This dress is my top pick.  The sweet floral print is something I’ve usually avoided (I’m usually not into prints), but I fell in love with this dress when I saw it.  The lacy details and flowy look hasme ready for warmer temps!

E452561_7077

Border Paisley Tie Waist Dress Love the colors in this dress and I like that the tie belt is removable.

E459487_5514

Camellia Garden Shirtdress This dress screams spring with its floral pattern!

E461311_6181

Lace Flutter Dress This is the dressiest of the group & just a beautiful shade of purplish grey!  I love the lace and those fluttery cap sleeves…adorable!  This dress would be perfect to wear to a wedding paired with some strappy nude heels…perfection!

E458240_2222

Embroidered Bell Cuff Sleeve Dress Just adorable!  This dress is so fun and would look perfect paired with wedges.  I love the sleeves & the colorful embroidery.

 

Ok there are my dress picks.  They are all under $100 and LOFT has sales quite often so. Let me know if you have a dress that you found that I need to check out.

Until next time, have a great Monday!

Beauty Finds at Macy’s

I don’t know about you, but I love a good deal!  Free gifts with purchase and extra perks seems to always push me from “I don’t really need anything” to checking the shipping status on a daily basis to see if my stuff has shipped!  (Please tell me I’m not the only person that does this!!!)  Anyway, while on Macy’s website I came across some really good beauty deals I wanted to share with you!

First up Peter Thomas Roth.  With any $50 Peter Thomas Roth purchase you can receive a free 1.7 oz. Pumpkin Enzyme Mask.

9098328_fpx.tif
Free Pumpkin Enzyme Mask with any $50.00 PTR purchase ($42 value)

Might I suggest trying the Peter Thomas Roth 24K Gold Pure Luxury Lift and Firm Hydra-Gel Eye Patches.  I’ve never tried these, but I’ve heard really good things about them.  Another item I suggest is Peter Thomas Roth Irish Moor Mud.  I have combination skin and this charcoal based mask works so well with my skin.  It helps to pull out impurities in the skin and minimizing my pores.  My skin feels so soft and hydrating when I’m done.

               2548079_fpx.tif

 

 

Next up is Clinique.  They are having a Purchase with Purchase (with any $29.50 purchase you can get their “Best of Clinique” set for $49.50 (a $197 value).  This “Best of” set includes 7 items and a pretty traincase.

“Best of Clinique” set $49.50 w/ any $29.50 purchase ($197 value)

One of my top favorites from Clinique that I recommend is their  All About Eyes.  I love this eye cream!  It’s not too heavy and wears well under my makeup.  Another favorite of mine is their Moisture Surge Hydrating Supercharged Concentrate.  This Moisture Surge Concentrate has been a HUGE help with my skin during the colder weather.  Since the temperature’s have been dropping I’ve been using this and it keeps my skin hydrated and flake free, but doesn’t make me feel oily.   I’m also a huge fan of their Pop lip colors  This Pop Party set has 6 colors that would make a perfect holiday gift and includes everything from pinks to nude shades.

1710545_fpx.tiffullsizeoutput_1c38 8936044_fpx.tif

Lastly, Bobbi Brown is offering a complimentary Luxe Lip Color (in the shade Neutral Rose) with any $50.00 Bobbi Brown purchase.

9083322_fpx.tif
Free Luxe Lip Color with any $50.00 Bobbi Brown purchase.  ($37 value)

There are so really good gift sets out right now with Bobbi Brown!  This Satin & Caviar Eye Shadow & Eyeliner Party Ready Palette is just great.  It comes with 3 eye shadows and their iconic gel liner (which is awesome btw!) AND a double-sided brush.  The other set that caught my attention was the 5 Piece Instant Pretty Party Ready Set.  This set comes with almost everything you need to get ready and I have to say I LOVE the blush duo and again gel eye liner too!

8907478_fpx.tif 8907477_fpx.tif

Okay, so there is a roundup of a few brands that I thought were offering some good beauty finds!  These are all for a limited time only so if you see something you like be sure to grab it!

Until next time, have a great day!

Pink Lipsticks

I admit I have way more lipsticks then I’ll ever use, but that doesn’t stop me from buying more.  I have purchased a few lipsticks this month and I wanted to share a few that I really like.

IMG_4466
Clinique Sweet Pop

This lipstick is a great formula that glides on smoothly and doesn’t dry out my lips. It has a nice satin finish.

IMG_1433
Bobbi Brown Art Stick-Dusty Pink

This lip crayon is one of my favorites! It’s so easy to glide on and wears for a long time on my lips without drying them out. This lipcolor has a nice matte finish.  I look forward to buying more of these!

IMG_4141
High Shimmer Lip Gloss-Pastel

This gloss is great for those days when I have to run out of the door, but still want a hint of color.  This gloss looks great over both of the lip colors I’ve mentioned above too!

Lastly, before I put ANY lip color on my lips I always put this on

fullsizeoutput_175
Aquaphor Lip Repair

This is my favorite lip product ever!  It helps prevent my lips from getting dry and chapped (even during the winter) and is fragrance and paraben free.  I have these everywhere…one in my purse, my bathroom, my bedside table, my car…seriously they are everywhere!

So there are a few pink toned lip colors I have recently bought and have been really happy with.  I’m always looking for new colors so let me know what you like.

Have a great day!
