My New Nike Sneakers!

nikeID+sneakers+spoiled+pretty My New Nike Sneakers!

I was in the market for new kicks, so I headed over to nikestore.com to pick up a new pair. I’m one of a kind, so instead of purchasing some pre-made sneakers, I decided to design my own – and I’m so excited by the results. Check it…they even have my name on them!

They’ll arrive just in time for Christmas, so this is my gift to myself. I’m hoping that my new sneaks will encourage me to make more frequent trips to the gym.

Beautyblender: Holiday Beauty Gift Guide

beautyblender+hot+pink+holiday Beautyblender: Holiday Beauty Gift Guide

Let me speak frankly. If you’re applying your foundation with anything but the Beautyblender sponge, you’re doing it wrong. Look…I don’t mean to put you on blast, but I’m here to give it to you straight. And when I tell you that Beautyblender is, hands down, the best foundation applicator, I speak the truth.

The point of foundation is to fool the eye of the beholder into thinking you were blessed with a flawless complexion. But if you’re applying it incorrectly, or with inferior tools, you just look like you’re wearing a makeup mask. And who wants that? Nobody, that’s who. The difference between foundation that looks like foundation and foundation that looks like skin is Beautyblender.

Since I was introduced to Beautyblender in 2007, we have been in a monogamous relationship. It is the only tool I use to apply my foundation. Invented by Hollywood makeup artists, this sponge leaves you with a professional finish. Applying makeup with fingers or sharp-edged triangular sponges can waste makeup and can leave visible streaks. Beautyblender’s elliptical shape makes allows you to access hard-to-reach areas with ease. Its suede-like texture repels product, so your foundation actually ends up on your face – rather than absorbed by the sponge. And its unique curves fit the contours of your face, leaving your makeup dazzling and undetectable.

I even use it to apply my concealer and cream blushes. And if you have problem skin, I can’t recommend anything better for magically disguising blemishes and hyperpigmentation. Beautyblender is reusable (perfect for those green gals), latex-free, non-allergenic, and odor free…and makes a great holiday gift.

Give your beauty-loving BFF the gift of perfect skin with the Hot Pink Holiday Kit, which includes Beautyblender and 3 oz Blendercleanser in an organza drawstring carry pouch….tagged for gift giving!

You know who is also a fan of Beautyblender? My pal, and Celebrity Makeup Artist, Mario Dedivanovic. Watch the Beautyblender in action, as Mario makes up the beautiful face of his muse, Kim Kardashian.

Starbucks Caramel Brulee Latte

starbucks+caramel+brulee+latte Starbucks Caramel Brulee LatteDear fellow Starbucks addicts,

Just thought you’d like to know that our favorite coffee joint just added a new caffeine concoction to their holiday drink lineup: the Caramel Brulee Latte.

They combined Starbucks espresso and steamed milk with a rich caramel sauce and topped it with whipped cream and shimmery pieces of caramel topping.

xoxo,

Update: I just tried it and it is delish!

In case you hadn’t heard, the 80’s are back. First, the decade of excess made its way into our closets. Then it trickled down into our makeup bags. Now, it’s showing up in our showers!

Check out these soaps I found on Etsy. Totally tubular, right? I can imagine my 10 year old self sudsing up with these soaps, before slipping into my favorite EJ Gitano outfit and LA Gear sneakers.
