Charlotte Ronson at NYFW with Batiste

 Affiliate Link Press Sample


It is time for more New York Fashion Week coverage!

The iconic British brand, and one of my favorites as well, Batiste Dry Shampoo, was the official Hair Care Sponsor of the Charlotte Ronson Spring/Summer 2015 show. Batiste is one of my go-to's for dry shampoo. It certainly is a cult-favorite for a reason. It works wonders on my 2nd day and even 3rd day (gasp!) post-hair washing hair. Not to mention, it can work for you any day to add fabulous volume to your hair. My super long and somewhat flat hair needs all the volume help it can get! ;) Plus, Batiste smells amazing!!!

On Friday, September 5th at The Pavilion at Lincoln Center in NYC, Batiste was used by the stylists backstage to get the models hair looking great for the runway show for Charlotte Ronson's fabulous new collection! 

Check out this Video from the Charlotte Ronson Spring/Summer show at NYFW: Beautiful hair and makeup as well as fresh and inspiring clothes!

Pretty Polish: SpaRitual's Fall Wander Collection & faves from Summer's Drift Collection!

 Affiliate Link Press Sample


The Fall Season is ahead! What better way to mark the change in season than swapping out your nail color! Every season, I rotate my nail color. The Fall approaches slowly here in GA as it stays hot for a long time. So, I slowly ease out my favorite Summer colors as I add in some fun new Fall shades. 

Today I am going to share with you some exciting shades from SpaRitual's new Fall 2014 Wander Collection as well as share some of my favorites from SpaRitual's gorgeous Summer Drift Collection (since I am still wearing those colors this time of year). I adore the formula and shade selection from SpaRitual. The lacquers go on amazingly: full coverage in 2 coats. Plus, the shade selection really does offer something special. These are unique shades that are truly unlike any other polishes or lacquers in my collection. I am just thrilled with my assortment of both Summer and Fall shades from SpaRitual!

Say goodbye to those bright, neon summer hues and update your nails with the new season’s hottest shades.  As seen on all the biggest fashion designers’ runways, sophisticated and dramatic jewel tones like bright cobalt, maroon, deep navy and cognac have been spotted on some of Hollywood’s biggest names- check out Emma Stone in Max Mara and Lupita Nyong’o in Givenchy by Riccardo Tisci.

The Fall Wander Collection: 
The right color is everything this season. SpaRituals's new fall 2014 collection, Wander, features deep shades of blues, reds and caramels, making it the perfect beauty must have for fall.  As with all SpaRitual lacquers, the Wander collection is formulated without DBP, Toluene, Formaldehyde, camphor and Formaldehyde Resin. 

This gorgeous collection was inspired by the history and shifting sands of the desert. The collection contains 6 new lacquers in a lovely variety of rich shades: Tapestry, Mirage, Oasis, Arroyo, Nomad, and Starry Night. I tried out Arroyo (a lovely soft lavender-toned neutral pink with glitter shimmer) and Starry Night (a gorgeous deep olive brown with golden glitter shimmer).
 
The Summer Drift Collection:
What can I say? This collection is *so me*! I absolutely adore every single shade. However, I do have some favorites, too! I am particularly enjoying wearing this combo: Sea Glass on my Nails (what a unique shade of soft semi-sheer aqua with mega duo chrome glitter and shimmer) and Blue Lagoon on my toes (I have been complimented on this toe-nail shade so many times that I can not even count!). What fun and pretty colors to wear! :)

Have you seen this new Fall Wander Collection from SpaRitual? What shades are you excited to try? Or, what colors do you like to wear on your nails in the Fall?

Affiliate Link Press Sample


CVS Launches MUA Makeup Academy:
CVS is carrying a new makeup line: MUA (Makeup Academy)! This is a new premium beauty line that you can get right at the drugstore. It is available exclusively at CVS/pharmacy! I love it when you can get premium makeup at the drugstore. You really can't beat that convenience.

I love trying out new makeup lines. It gives me so much to explore! This line particularly intrigues me because it is very specialized: rather than having every type of product imaginable, they have 3 main product types: lips, brushes, and false lashes.

Developed by makeup professionals and beauty experts to bring premium quality cosmetics and beauty accessories to makeup lovers everywhere, the Makeup Academy line has more than 145 products within three categories – lip in fashion-forward colors and luxurious textures, expertly-crafted brushes, and a wide range of false eyelashes.

I tried out an assortment of lip products and brushes from this line. To find out more details about these items and here my thoughts, please click "read more" below!
