Twisted Silver: Aztec bracelet, Beach earrings, Mum earrings
Nothing says summer escape more than these three fabulous jewels from Twisted Silver! The bold raw brass of the Aztec bracelet channels the tribal trend of the season, in addition to making a statement with one easy piece. So fun! The Beach earrings bring the summer sand to you wherever you are. And the Mum earrings are not only loved by Dancing with the Stars pro dancer Karina Smirnoff, but also by our team! Many an occasion to wear these beauties.
Living Proof: No Frizz Straight Styling Spray
Best anti-frizz product to date. Seriously. Now, I've tried other LP No Frizz products in the past, to no avail. However, this one is worth its weight in gold. And good thing, because it's expensive. Most products leave me needing a flat iron to finish the job. This spray is so effective, nothing, I mean nothing, else is needed. Smooth, frizz-free hair lasts for days.
lululemon: Inner Peace Jacket in white, It's a Cinch Dress - Jacquard
Two items that I absolutely love for both functionality and comfort! The jacket in white is crisp, fresh, versatile (it's reversible, though I would never want to reverse it) and ever so soft. It feels so luxurious against your skin. The lightweight material makes it perfect for wearing to and from my workout, in addition to an over air conditioned home. The cinch dress is awesome, as it covers my rear. I wear it with my wunder unders to Pure Barre, as well as for running. What's great about this piece is if you have a hectic day of running around town, you can actually make this work into a cute ensemble. Trust me, I've done it.
Natura Bissé: Sheer Touch*
This fabulous new addition to the Cure line of NB is true luxury. A gorgeous bronzing gel that provides instant luminosity and, at the same time, offers a gradual increase in skin tone, thanks to its self tanning effect. Hands down, the most amazing feature is the scent. No yucky self tanning smell. Not even remotely. Just a clean, fresh scent to accompany the beautiful glow. Which means you can layer your favorite fragrance over it without having a competition. The only two drawbacks are (1) it doesn't have enough slip, so you have to work fast and it requires a bit more product to go from head to toe; and (2) it will rub off on your clothes (though it washes out easily) if you don't give it time to dry. As in all NB products, it's high performing luxe!
Vincent Longo: Lipstain SPF 15 in Scarlet Red*
Another fabulous sheer red! I cannot get enough. The best thing about this particular lipstain is that it's lightweight with the ability to add rich color. It's nourishing for lips, too, as it contains Aloe Vera and Vitamin E. And the fact that it is SPF 15 means I can sport it at the pool! Truly a must have sheer lip color.
Chloé: Ankle-Wrap Platform Wedge
What's not to love about these, right? I've had my eye on these Chloé wedges since the first rendition last year. The spring version is even better! Hand-stitched detailing. Tuscon leather. Simple form, yet chic to the core. The incline is slight so they're easy to walk in ... and comfortable. A welcome addition to my wardrobe!
