Eve Pearl 55 percent off ! check my recs (pics included)

25 Nov

One of my favorite brands  Eve Pearl is also participating in the black Friday madness! 55% off your purchase beginning black Friday (Midnight Thursday) and ends Monday.

I have used several  of Eve’s products, the foundation, blush trio and various lip products. The HD foundation is seamless and never cakey. I also like it because I am forever between shades, and it contains two colors. I can take my brush back and forth or stick to one side, the same idea for the amazing blush trio.

Here is a shot of me wearing the trusty dual HD foundation

don’t ask me why I wasn’t smiling lol

the blush trio any complexion can wear and is perfect for everyday, the salmon concealer? INFAMOUS!- trust.

Here is a HD foundation -in “dark”, my current one has hit pan, and you won’t be able to appreciate it seeing as though I have abused it thoroughly.

Compact is cute and even comes in this little pouch

 

ok ok now the deets of the promo…Just enter the code  BPCM2010 for 55% off your purchase, excluding kits (which are already at an amazing value).

Also mention my name or blog site in the comments!

A fashionable home office.

24 Nov

 I have been an avid reader of Get it Girl Style for the past year. She mixes home decor (I love her eye for interior design), fashion and a splash of lifestyle…

I pretty much want to camp out in her home office. I can see myself blogging, surfing the web and sipping chai tea right at her desk. I love the green walls, which for some, may be unexpected in a home office. I have also put the West Elm parson’s desk on my hierarchy of needs (hint, hint if you are reading this,Mom).

Check it…

love her inspiration board, and it reminds me I need to get on one for myself!

check out her blog today! guaranteed great read!

Lanvin + H&M ….The Aftermath and the lipstick.

22 Nov

The date that was intially announced for the release of the collection initially landed on my day off….welp, when the pictures of the collection surfaced, It was in fact November 20th, and with my luck I had to work, at 8am, when many fashionistas were beginning to shop the racks. Via twitter the night before I saw people in NYC were lining up as early at mignight! I was snug as a bug in a rug.

That didn’t stop me from sauntering down Lexington ave at break time (ok, ok I powerwalked), to the 59th and Lex location. First glance? Well the doors on the 59th street side were locked.pshhhhh. I walked around to Lexington and walked in, no immediate fiasco. I saw the tote bag and grabbed that (it was $3.95 and proceeds go to UNICEF), proceeded upstairs…yesssss there were the goods off towards the back.

Small issue, you needed a wrist band to shop.Sigh. No biggie, I actually think it ws GENIUS. they had it color coded (i.e. if your band was green you shopped from 9:00am- 9:45am). H&M finally got a clue from the craziness of the Stella and other guest designer mob scenes.

I asked a nice girl there if they had any lipsticks, she walked over and grabbed one for me. And there you have it………My Lanvin “haul”… it’s red and I love it. From what I could see the dress hangers were chunky and cute and something I’d like in my closet (weird, I know) they had cute shopping bags. From what I heard the sizing went no larger than a 10. So I guess one more french fry and I wouldn’t be able to wear anything anyway- guess if you never met me you know my size now!lol (keep in mind for birthdays, Christmas, etc.)

 

my cat is nosey and also a label ho’

 

I realize my two items could fit into a small plastic bag, but I wanted this one. The satin handles were a nice touch.

and now for my lonely lipstick…

what’s not to love about this packaging? *deets on my nail polish will be up tomorrow*

and the tote

I should have grabbed a couple, there were only $3.95.

Were any of you amongst the masses on Saturday? Get anything good? Scream at me!

 

Current Obsession: Celine Boston bag

22 Nov

Effective immediately  I have added this to my list of wants   needs.  It is the perfect balance of functionality and style. Seeing as this won’t go over very well with Santa, I added it to my mounting list of things for next years birthday ( I will be a woman of a certain age) .

Check it in action:

 The bag could literally fit all your daily things, and  change of shoes (sometimes very necessary when schlepping through the city)

It would definitely be a “investment piece”, have you all come across any nice handbags as of late?

the one on the far left has my heart….

 

I can appreciate a good Little Black Dress.

19 Nov

It’s that time of the year when holiday parties are going on, and amidst the chaos of holiday shopping makeing sure you are a stand out at said parties, while still keeping it classy is what the people want. What better than a LBD? Black looks good on everyone and for me, it someone hides my kangaroo pouch I have going on.Accessories and shoes are usually easy to pair with it and you can really go with whatever strikes your fancy for make up; high drama or  something minimal (depending on your audience/occassion,etc).

Here are some LBD’s I have fallen in love with as of late.

 

 

 

Partner it with a no fuss clutch or a minaudiere and BAM!

Product Rave! Miss Jessies Buttercreme.. End your dry hair sorrows!

16 Nov

Hiya! I try to post once a day, however we are in full swing of holiday at work and it’s getting tres hectic. I thought I would try and get some reviews of some products that I know will have crazy promos for holidays, and hopefully these reviews will aid in you not draining your checking account.

I have been using Miss Jessie’s Curly Buttercreme  for a few years now. I started a few years ago during my transition. To this very day it is one of my go to products for moisture. The only caveat is the expense. Lucky for me, usually right around Thanksgiving, Miss Jessies does a buy one get one free event, that goes through December. I stock up, and have product to last me through the entire year.

Most retialers participate and the sale is on their website. Here are some other products I used and I highly recommend; Miss Jessie’s Stretch Silkening Cream , Miss Jessie’s Creme De La Creme Conditioning Cream , and Miss Jessie’s Quick Curls .

Have any of you tried Miss Jessies?
