Soft washed eyelids is all about subtle shadow colors that bring out your eye color. I tend to always want to go dark on the eyes but for this time of the year, its nice to soften up the colors. Think pretty and feminine! Use light shades such as these to create that perfect soft washed glow! I personally love this palette by Bobbi Brown. It’s a great price point and such a perfect variety of colors!
Ahoy mates!!! That’s right, these aren’t your typical pirate-like eye patches. lol…sorry I had to. (Too much coffee for me while writing this post)! Every now and again, we all need a little under eye pick me up! I like to use these easy to apply, easy to peel off De-Tox hydrating gel eye patches. They are ideal for when you are traveling or need some under-eye rejuvenation before an event. These eye patches are cucumber scented and smell so fresh while having an awesome cooling effect. Check out some of my favorite eye-patches below:
Normally I would say summer in the city but in this case, summer out of the city is the way to go! Have you ever visited NYC in the summer!? As much as I love my city, it is truly miserable in July and August. Hot, steamy, sweaty… not cute! Soooo most New Yorkers like myself, head out of town. This has been one of the best summers yet filled with traveling adventures! I loved every minute of our travels as a family even though I feel like all I have done is pack and re-pack. The good thing is that all of the clothing that I bought in the spring has proven to be worthy of all of this awesome travel! This date night, I am wearing this amazing dress I bought at Nordstrom in the spring by Elan. Believe it or not, it’s actually a swim coverup!
The beauty of NYC and my downtown “Fidi” neighborhood is that there is absolute abstract beauty everywhere you turn! I am convinced that I was a tour guide in my past life or destined to be one in the 2nd half of this one! lol! If you follow my Instagram stories, you know I tend to be obsessed with tours. I really want to know what things are, who built them, the meaning of how thing in history got to be! Is that too much to ask for? LOL !!
What do you wear on a hot sticky day in NYC!? A lightweight white knit dress thanks to Banana Republic! I am home for a few days in-between our summer plans, running all over the city and it’s HOT!!!! In the high 90’s with humidity though the roof. Needless to say, no matter what you wear, you will end up being a hot mess BUT who says you can’t rock a sweaty summer look?!? LOL! As long as you have the right clothing, you will be good to go!
I am embarrassed to say that years ago, when I was on a little show called RHONY, I wouldn’t go to any event without getting my hair done! That’s right…I would get up early, and have someone come over for a quick (and expensive ) beach wave blowout. Well, I am proud to say with a little practice and a lot of trial and error I finally learned to style my own hair with beach waves!
This is the time of year to rock this perfect 2-piece set from Free People! Love the color, love the style, love the fit! This is everything you want in a set and more. It’s true to size so there’s no need to size up or down. It’s also a perfect transitional piece that can easily be worn into fall!
It may be barely there but it’s definitely there! These barrettes are a subtle little way to add a splash to your next hair do! Hair accessories are all the rage right now, whether it’s a headband, a bow, a scrunchie or fun barrettes. This is the perfect way to dress up any outfit and add a pop of color!
