Favorite Right Now: Beauty Edition

I am a closet beauty junkie. I get so excited when I get to try something new. That being said, I often cringe at the price and walk away without purchasing. Can you believe how expensive some beauty products are? I understand why some are more expensive and the fact that people “swear by them” but I can’t bring myself to buy them. I like my beauty products practical and effective.

I have a lot of products which I am really loving lately so I decided to share a few over the next few weeks! Starting with these five that I use pretty much daily!

Products I Love:

Kiehl’s Midnight Recovery Botanical Cleansing Oil – I am such a fan of oil cleansers. I always use these towels (thanks HOP of the recommendation) to press the oil and my make-up off. The cleanser doesn’t leave your skin oily like you would imagine but is gentle, hydrating, and really gets all of your make-up and daily grim off!

Beauty Counter Nourishing Rosewater Mist – I am obsessed with rosewater spray! I use it for everything from toner to setting my make-up! It is so re

Mary Kay Timewise Age-Fighting Moisturizer – I recently discovered this cream. While it isn’t super heavy for my dry days I do like it for everyday. It is light and moisturizing without being oily and it goes great under make-up!

bareMinerals BARESKIN Pure Brightening Serum Foundation – BEYOND OBSESSED with this make-up. Every time I wear it someone compliments my skin. No lie, every time! It is really light but gives great, natural, coverage. It also adds a gorgeous dewey, “I just woke-up like this glowing Goddess” look. I highly recommend trying this! tip: give it time to dry for a few minutes after applying! 

Kiehl’s Breakout Control Targeted Acne Spot Treatment – I put this on a blemish at night and it works its magic by morning. Trust me, you need this in your beauty bag!

Spring Outfit Inspiration

I have mentioned before how rough this time of year is. From the fickle weather, monstrous allergies, and confused fashion I think we all breathe a sigh of relief when spring has officially sprung. In Dallas the weather will literally go from 90 to 55 in one day, as we are experiencing right now. Since I can’t predict how hot or cold the end of the day will be I have been wearing a lot of jeans (these in particular) and blouses. This way I am cool enough for hotter temperatures and can throw on a jacket if it should get suddenly chilly.

This blouse is by far my favorite new purchase! Trust me, you will see it a lot! It comes in three colors, is super soft, and is under $70! I really want this green color for my safari this summer! And the black would be so chic with black jeans or a black skirt and my new shoes!

What To Wear Skiing

To say that I was nervous to go skiing was an understatement. However, if you look the part you can be the part. My first order of business before my trip – find the perfect outfit! I had been lusting over ski outfits for months and I knew there was one place that had it all – Saint Bernard. I found exactly what I was looking for! An outfit that was chic, not ordinary, and would stand the test of time. My favorite part of the look were my Erin Snow Slim Leg Ski pant (which are on sale). I literally had women stop me and ask where my pants were from! Each woman said she hated how baggy  her pants were and had been searching for a skinny pant. My husband was worried the pants wouldn’t be warm enough but his worries were unnecessary as the pants were extremely warm! They were perfect from the slopes to après ski! Not only were women on the slopes wanting to know about my pants but women at the Ritz also came up asking where my cute red pants were from!

If you need ski outfits or any type of ski gear I would recommend going to Saint Bernard now. Everything is on sale which makes it the perfect time to stock up. There is nothing worse than regretting not buying something on sale and then having to pay full price later.
