Those who know me, know that I am very #dbsobsessed with everything in Pendleton's Glacier Park print, from their National Parks Collection.
I am so thrilled to share this new Glacier Park Stripe Wool Scarf with you! It is just the right size, super soft, and the perfect fall/winter outfit addition. I wore it last night with camel booties and belt, Paige dark rinse skinny jeans and an oversized chambray, tucked in only in front. I looked good.... just sayin'.
For those of you with dogs that immediately destroy most toys, I have a new duo for you to check out! These Multipet toys (like the pig I wrote about before) are durable, highly squeaky, and most importantly, #AlfieApproved.
Sorry for the language, but it is just TOO GOOD. I love almost all things by Jessica Hische, but this one takes the cake.
FUCK SHIT UP SIGN
Kenneth Cole New York Contrast Sleeve Bouclé Coat is a GREAT find. Loving with high-waisted AG Jeans, chambray and tan leather loafers.
This album is a real winner. Ellie Goulding has gone and done it again. Those of you who know me, can imagine that I am super into the song 'Codes' at the moment. It's THE JAM.
I have never been a big fan of sneakers on myself. I love the effortless and casual look on others, but given that I have boats for feet (ok, not terrible, but they are big), I don't typically like how my feet look in many casual flat options.
However, with the recent addition of girlfriend jeans to my wardrobe, I needed a pair of shoes I could wear with them when I am not looking to jazz them up with heels. FOUND THEM! I finally gave in and bought a pair of Chuck Taylor® All Star 'Ox' Sneakers, and I love them. The color is great because it is not such a stark white, but also light enough to keep the clean look of a white sneaker.
They're comfortable and great with Peds, if you need to wear them for long periods of time.
It's rare that I find beauty products that I approve of for regular use, in the drugstore. However, there are exceptions, and here they are!
NYX Matte Lipstick: So very Kylie of me, I know! But this stuff is AWESOME and only $6, with a major variety of colors. It stays put and has a very rich pigment. Big fan of these lipsticks which have officially converted me to a grown up (which means I am not just wearing gloss anymore).
Biore Strips: We all know these, but if you are like me, you have not used them in YEARS. I finally picked them up again, after having some problems in the pore department. When I first used them, I did not properly wet my skin before applying, which rendered them useless. HOWEVER, once I applied them properly, I was reminded of how awesomely effective they are. I'm back, Biore. Missed you!
Now, you are going to notice that the following three products are all from Maybelline. As someone who has never had a very positive association with that line, I have been shocked to find that they have stepped up their game in a major way. Here are my favorites at the moment:
Maybelline Baby Skin Instant Pore Eraser: First of all, if you are someone who is prone to breaking out from anything that is oily or heavy, or someone who easily looks greasy in the face department, I don't think this is for you. For everyone else- this is a great product to use as a primer for your foundation/bb/cc.
Maybelline Pure BB Cream: When applied with a Beauty Blender, this stuff is great for an everyday, light coverage option. Go a shade darker than you might think though, as I have found that it runs a bit light. Pictured below. NOTE: Do not get the cheaper version of the Beauty Blender. They are totally different products and cannot be compared. I tried both and the inexpensive knock off was nothing but a waste of time and money.
Maybelline New York Shine Free Oil Control Loose Powder: Loving this as the third step to face makeup, after the two listed above. It sets my makeup and helps to eliminate shine and makeup meltdown/stickiness.
Maybelline New York Eye Studio Lasting Drama Gel Eyeliner: I am a bit picky when it comes to my eyeliner. After trying many, I am sure of the fact that gel pots are the way to go, and for a long time, I thought that only Bobbi Brown Gel Liner would do. However, that was before I got to know this product. I have in black and brown and I love them both. They come with a great brush for application, and the makeup goes on consistently and easily, staying put through a long day or night of wear. I still love Bobbi Brown, and think her products are best for dramatic colors, but for everyday wear, I am all about this Maybelline product.
LINKS FOR ALL PRODUCTS BELOW:
INC International Concepts Women's Zizi Asymmetrical Pumps_ (Only at Macy's), are everything. Love them with boyfriend jeans, a simple shirt and leather jacket. They are shockingly walkable, even for someone like myself, who NEVER wears a thin heel like this. #dbsobsessed
You need to add these to your wardrobe. Any and all of her wedges are amazing. I am partial to the closed toe versions. Pair with jeans and a chambray. Perfection.
