Earlier this week I announced that one of my favorite companies was having a warehouse sale online. Janessa Leone has some of the best hats. I only own two, but wish I had a few more. They're a little on the pricey side, so it's best to buy a neutral color in a shape that won't go out of style. I have a black straw hat for summer with a wide brim (it's a bit dramatic but who cares), and I just added a winter hat from the warehouse sale to my collection. I'll post photos of the new one as soon as I can. Shop some of my favorite Janessa Leone pieces by clicking on the pictures below:
I used Armani Luminous Silk foundation for five years and still think that it's one of the best foundations on the market. You can go to any beauty counter and they'll be happy to let you try it. They'll help you find your shade and you'll realize how great it is.
The reason I decided to start using Estee Lauder has to do with time. I wake up very early 6 days a week and need my makeup to still look great by the time evening rolls around. Even with the Armani primer, I felt like the Armani foundation did not look the same as the day went on. I would apply Armani powder at lunch to freshen up, but by dinner I needed more. I researched some of the most talked about liquid foundations and found that Estee Lauder double wear has quite the following. Everyone said the same thing, it lasts. Because of its reputation, I decided to give it a try.
It lasts. Let me tell ya! I still have Armani primer left and don't want it to go to waste so I've been using that with the Estee Lauder double wear foundation. Here are my steps: First I apply Estee Lauder day wear moisturizer. Second I apply my Armani primer. Third, I use my Sigma Beauty F80 flat brush to apply my double wear liquid foundation. Fourth, I apply a little bit of Estee Lauder double wear powder to create more of a matte look.
I still get just as many compliments, if not more now that I'm using the double wear foundation. It feels good, it looks good, and it's less expensive than the Armani luminous silk that I was using. I even got my Mom to try it, and she loves it too! She's gorgeous and would look good regardless but she looks so so pretty with her new makeup! I love sharing new products with the ones I care about (like my Mom), so I thought I would share Estee Lauder double wear with all of you. I hope you like it. It's worth trying. Happy Friday!
I refuse to try on swimsuits in store so I ordered this one online and hoped for the best. I love the red bows and the cut is great. The material isn't too thin so you don't have to starve yourself for a week just to wear the darn thing. It's very flattering and has great quality. They have a few other options/similar styles still available and all are on sale since summer is coming to an end. Click on any of the links listed below to shop my style : )
This Anthropologie dress is on the top of my what I want list. I saw Anthro feature the dress on Insta a few weeks ago but I didn't give it too much thought. Earlier this week the dress showed up again, when I was looking online for dresses. Anthro is the place to go for dresses. They won't let you down. I wanted to see what the dress looked like in person so I had one of the Dallas stores hold it for me. After work I stopped by to see it in person and try it on. Y'all. It felt like a dream. I can't even describe how soft and well made it is. The only issue is that it's low cut. My friends would probably say that I'm more of the turtleneck type so I had one of those "gosh do I have it on backwards???" moments when I first put it on. After I realized that no, it's definitely not on backwards I was able to see how pretty it is. I left the store without it, and I'll probably dream of it tonight. I can't wear it to work, or church (that much is obvious) sooo I'm not really sure where I would wear it. But it's sooo so pretty! Have you ever had one of those I should have bought it moments because something sold out? Uhh. I think I need to sleep on it. Hope y'all are having a good week! Here's the link for the dress and a few of my other favorites:
Sometimes you need a little height but don't want to look like you're trying too hard (you know the girl walking around in stilettos when it's 100 degrees outstide). Platform sneakers. Get you some, and thank me later. They are so comfy! I'm almost as tall as my brother when I wear mine. He's 6'2''. And they make your legs look thin. I got these shoes from a website called SheIn. Their shipping is a little on the slow side but their items are all priced pretty low. I linked my exact pair below:
I apologize for the overload of shoe posts, but summertime in Texas is no joke and shoes to handle this heat (or the beach) are needed. Most of my new summer shoes are on sale. These black and white slides have been marked down to $19.99!! I know. Victory dance worthy. They're also available in blue and white.
My converse that I got three years ago had seen better days and just didn't look that great anymore. I was afraid I wouldn't be able to find a pair that I liked as much. Then these Keds came along. They're so cute and give you a bit of height. Use the link below to shop my shoes.
Aren't these shoes amazing!? I ordered them on sale from Shopbop, which was quite the process. I bought a top for a date at the beginning of the year and hated it. One of those looks cool online but terrible on me type of things. By the time I returned it, I coudnt get a refund so they gave me a gift card. Fast forward 4 orders (that all turned out to be less than perfect) before these Kate Spade shoes showed up one sale and in my size. Love at first sight. They're still available at 3 retailers and come in two other colors! Use the links below to see if they still have your size.
