Nordstrom Anniversary Sale: What’s On My Wish List

The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale starts today and here’s what’s on my wish list:

bebe Mixed Media Trench Coat, $119 (after sale: $198)
When I received the Anniversary Sale catalog a few weeks back and spied this trench, it was love at first sight. The faux-leather sleeves are FIERCE and I can’t resist an asymmetrical zipper, so if this ends up fitting (sadly, it doesn’t come in Petite sizes), I’m bringing this bad girl home.

DV by Dolce Vita ‘Folly’ Bootie, $66.90 (after sale: $99.95)
Again…another love-at-first-glance situation (it was also in the catalog). Give me a haircalf bootie in an animal print with an exposed zipper and I’m a happy gal. I don’t really need this boot, but I want it. Truly, madly, deeply.

Hue Denim Leggings, $25.90 (after sale: $39)
Come fall and winter, I live in leggings – and Hue makes some of the highest quality, affordable and fashion forward styles. I already own two pairs of these leggings and I love them (my mom and sister own pairs too). What makes them a must-have is how they suck you in and make your legs and butt look firm and toned. It’s like a denim legging pair of Spanx. Speaking of Spanx… (more…)

L’Oreal Paris Never Fail Lacquer Liner and Colour Caresse Luminous Lipcolor

A few weeks ago, I received a massive package from the kind folks at L’Oreal Paris. Inside was mountain of makeup, skincare and hair products. There’s entirely too many products to get through in this one little post, so this will be the first in a series of L’Oreal Paris product reviews.

First up is my favorite: L’Oreal Paris Infallible Never Fail Lacquer Liner. The first time I used it, the pot went straight from my review pile right into my makeup bag – and it’s been there ever since. Whether you’re in the market for a new liner or you have a million (like me) and don’t think you need any more, L’Oreal Paris Infallible Never Fail Lacquer Liner is a must-have. It’s the bidness, y’all. And here’s why: (more…)

Polished: OPI Thanks a Windmillion

I’m not very good at subtle nail polish. I never get a french manicure – too stuffy for me – and I never really got into the habit of using pale pink or nude polish. My nails are either bare, sporting a coat of clear polish, or covered in a great color. I think of nail polish as an accessory – why be boring?!

My allegiance to bright polishes was swayed when I tried Thanks a Windmillion from OPI’s Holland collection. This pale sage green is gorgeous, and looks extra interesting when paired with a matte top coat. I wore this religiously all spring, and am looking forward to bringing it back in the fall to contrast all of my go-to dark colors.

Take The Eucerin Skin First Pledge!

This past Spring, I embarked on the 2012 Eucerin Healthy Skin Challenge. To kick off this partnership, I met with dermatologists from the Eucerin Skin First Council to develop my own personal skincare regimen (stay tuned for more progress updates and fabulous giveaways). But in the meantime, I want to encourage you to join me in taking the Eucerin Skin First Pledge:

I pledge to protect and defend my skin as it does me.

I pledge to make skincare a priority for me, my family, and my friends.

I pledge to treat my skincare more like healthcare.

Make a commitment to the health of your skin by taking the pledge and Eucerin will send you a free sample of Eucerin Daily Replenishing Lotion!

By pledging to put the health of your skin first every day, we make skincare a priority for our family, friends and ourselves. And when our skin is healthy, we feel confident, and it shows.

SensatioNail Invincible Gel Polish Giveaway!

You know the old saying that when you love something, you should set it free? Well, I’m no fool. When I find something I adore and can’t live without, I don’t part with it. I get the hook up for my friends, so they can share my joy.

This week, I’m partnering with Nailene and giving THREE lucky ladies the opportunity to try (and fall in love with) SensatioNail Invincible Gel Polish, which I raved about last week. Side note: it’s been a week and my mani looks exactly the same as day 1 – no chips and still high watt shine. (more…)
