Friday Favorites--A Little Bit of Buxom

I just love everything Buxom and I wanted to share with you all of these fun new Buxom goodies. 

Can we talk about my ongoing love affair with Buxom lip glosses? These new Holographic Full-On Plumping Lip Polish Top Coats are lip plumping and give the illusion of fuller lips. I love the applicator shape too. It is so easy to use. And my favorite thing about these new glosses (besides their adorable names) is the fact that I can wear them alone, just over a bare lip and they provide sheer color, or I can add them over any of my existing lipsticks. And did I mention that there are three multidimensional finishes within the collection-- sparkle, prism, or opalescent.  I am absolutely obsessed with each and every shade in this new collection-- Ariana (gold sparkle), Camila (bronze sparkle), Iris (pink prism), Jordan (blue prism), Mariah (mermaid prism), Savannah (peach prism), Selena (universal opalescent), Crystal (berry sparkle).

And I'm absolutely loving this Buxom Lash Mascara.  I'm very picky about my mascaras. I wear contacts so mascara sometimes can irritate my eyes. But this applicator makes it so easy to go on my lashes and I can wear it all day without any irritation. I really love it.

In addition to the amazing glosses, Buxom also has launched this Sexy Smoky Kajal Powder Liner. I love the sponge tip applicator and has a wet powder formula. This makes it so easy for me to create different lid looks-- from cat eyes, to smoky lids. And I love the two shades-- Sultry Black and Smouldering Brown. This really is the perfect liner for a casual day look, or a night out on the town.

So check out some of these Buxom products. I think you will love them!!! And you can shop these products by clicking on the links above. Happy Reading!!!

Happy Memorial Day

Denim-- Blank NYC
TShirt-- Nordstrom
Blazer-- Leith-- Nordstrom
Shoes-- Gucci-- similar here
Sunglasses- Celine

Happy Memorial Day Weekend!!! I had the best weekend. My little Zachary came back from 6th grade Science Camp and we took him to Benihana's to celebrate. It literally is our favorite restaurant. And the weekend continued with a fun birthday party at one of my girlfriend's house with a Mardi Gras theme. It was such a great theme for a party filled with color and lots and lots of beads!!! Hahaha! We had the best time. What did you do for the weekend?

Can we talk today about this new trend of side embroidery on jeans? I have seen this side stripe everywhere and I love this version from Blank NYC. How cute is the red and white stripe? But sometimes trends are not the easiest to style. So I kept this look simple. I added a great white linen blazer (which every fashion girl needs) and this fun Rolling Stones vintage graphic tee. And of course I completed the look with my favorite Gucci flats.

Just remember, if you embrace this denim trend, keep the rest of the look simple. I would love to hear  what you think of these jeans. Let me know in the comments section. Thanks to Gabi Wells for photos. You can shop this look by clicking on the links above. Happy Reading!!!

Different Ways to Style a Kimono

Hi there friends. I have been asked so much about all of my kimono looks lately. I thought I would share some of my favorite ways you can wear a great kimono today on the blog. I hope you invest in a perfect kimono for the upcoming summer season.

One way to wear a kimono is my adding a cute tee and some skinny jeans. This is such an easy look and super flattering!!! You can read about this look in this post.

This is such a fun look. This is actually a dress from Vici and I turned it into a fun kimono. I added a casual tee and a cute pair of shorts. This is a perfect casual look. So if you have a dress that you want to style differently, here is a great option. This was what I wore to a Cinco de Mayo party. 

This Topshop kimono is one of my favorites. Sometimes you need a pop of color and this yellow is so great for spring and summer.

You can also wear your kimono with a wider leg pair of jeans, a cute cami and some summer sandals. I love these wide legged jeans from Madewell, and it totally changes the look of styling this kimono. You can read more about this look in this post.

This look is on of my favorites. I love finding a statement kimono like this one from Zara and layering it over a slip dress. It can be a much dressier way of styling your kimono. You can read more about this look in this post.

I want to hear how you style your kimono. There are so many different ways so have fun with it. You can shop these looks by clicking on the links above. Happy Reading!!!!!

Friday Favorites-- AVON

Happy Friday and that means we are talking about my favorites of the week. Today it is these amazing products from Avon. Avon was kind enough to send me these products to help make my Mother's Day relaxing, and I love each and every one!!!

Avon Soft Cotton Rose Candle-- This smells heavenly!!! The perfect scent for relaxation.

Avon Care Vita Moist and Silicone Glove Hand Cream-- This is so dreamy!!! I love the texture and perfect for my dry cracked hands at this time of the year!!!

Anew Clinical Eye Lift-- I love a good eye cream and this one is sooooo good. What I love about this is how light it is. Sometimes eye creams can be so heavy and I love the consistency of this one.
