Items I’m Coveting – Black Jumpsuit

BlackjumpsuitsI love the idea of wearing a black jumpsuit on a dressy night out instead of the traditional LBD.  You can take each of these three options and dress them up with heels or more casual with a flat sandal or even a wedge.  They are also great transition pieces from winter to summer.  Jumpsuits can be a tricky fit especially for a shorter person like me but a quick trip to the tailor can help fix any fit.

Items I’m Coveting: Coral Nail Polish

coralnailI can not wait for it to be Spring and in order to prepare I have been looking at getting some new nail polish.  I think any of these coral polishes would be great for the spring season.  My personal favorite is the Essie Resort fling it is has more peach tones then the others.  I would definitely wear this on my fingers and maybe wear a minty green on my toes for a perfect spring combination.  Here is to hoping these temperatures warm up and spring is right around the corner.

January Glambag

jan14glambagI received my January Glambag in the mail yesterday.  These were the following items

1) MICA lip gloss

2) Yaby foundation

3) Apothederm bright skin serum

4) Absolute make-up cleansing tissues

All of the samples are from expensive lines which is a little different from most of my Glambags in the past.  I tried the foundation today and thought it was light and produced good coverage.  I am planning on using it as a travel foundation since it is less than 3oz.  I am sure most people do not get excited about the make-up cleansing tissues but I love to travel with those as well plus they would be great to throw in to a gym bag to use after a workout. I was a little bummed because I was hoping to get the Benefit POREfesional but maybe next time.  Again if you are interested in signing up for a glambag you can visit their site here.

Pantone Spring Color Report 2014

springcolor14-2Every year Pantone releases a forecast on upcoming colors for the season these were the 10 colors that they choose for Spring 2014.  This also includes their color of the year for 2014 Radiant Orchid.  Pastel shades seem to be most popular but they are more of a deep subdued pastel then we might traditionally think.  My personal favorite is the Cayenne I think this color would look great against a wide variety of skin colors.  I think many of these colors can be paired together to create some really great looks like pairing the Hemlock, Placid Blue and Paloma shades and also pairing the Cayenne, Sand, and Freesia shade.  An easy way to incorporate these colors is through your accessories so be on the lookout when shopping and by adding any of these colors to your overall wardrobe you will be right on trend for Spring 2014.

Items I am Coveting

Sassy_CluthesHere are some great options for color blocked clutches.  I love how these all have multiple colors to make them all so versatile.  My favorite out of the bunch is definitely #3 the Coach option.  I love that it is using a bunch of neutrals to make up the color blocking.  I could see myself pairing this with a great pair of leopard ballet flats and a pair of skinny jeans then topping it off with a great cream button up blouse.  Here are the details for all of the items

1) Melie Bianco

2) BCBG

3) Coach

4) Target

January Birchbox

BirchMy January Birchbox just came in and I was a little disappointed in it.  If you are not aware of what Birchbox is, it is a service that you pay $10 a month and they will send you 5 different beauty samples.  I subscribe to both Birchbox and IPSY (Glambag) they both cost the same the main difference is Birchbox is more all around beauty while IPSY focuses more on makeup. So these were the items that I received in my January Birchbox.

1) Fekkai Advanced Brilliant Glossing Creme

2) Nail Rock in Purple

3) Burt Bee’s day lotion

4) Harvey Prince Journey Perfume

5) 100% Pure Cosmetics Fruit Pigmented Mascara

The perfume is something that I would normally not buy but I really like it.  The Mascara actually smells like fruit so that should be interesting to see how long it lasts. It is suppose to be all natural which is great.  Also for some reason the only shade of nail color that I seem to receive from both IPSY and Birchbox is Purple.  This one is a little better because it is a dark purple and I don’t have to add the glitter.

Golden Globes Biggest Trend

SASSY_GOLDENThe biggest trend of the night were black and white dresses.  We had Julia wearing Dolce & Gabanna, Emilia Clarke wore Proenza Schouler, Jennifer was in Dior, Hayden was in Tom Ford and Jenna was in Cavalli.  Personally my favorite was Emilia’s dress it fit her very well and I thought that the large gold bangles were the perfect accessories.

Only a couple of weeks till the Oscars it will be interesting to see what trends show up there.
