Current Faves and Newbies!

Hi everyone! So much for me sticking to my new years resolution of blogging every week ugh! I’m so so sorry guys! You have no idea how crazy life has been(yay moving!) Never the less, I am so excited to be getting this post in and showing all of you some of my current favorites and things that I have recently picked up. Some of this is from Valentines day and others are just from my weekend outings! I was so excited to pick up these lip smackers lip blams, it reminds me of being in elementary school and all of my friends and I comparing the flavors we each had hah (and they taste great too shhhh!)

Lip Smackers

PRADA CANDY

The Prada Candy perfume is something that I had been going back and forth on for the longest time, so finally for Valentines day my beau decided to make the decision for me! How sweet I know haha but I truly love this softer sweet scent of this version of the Prada Candy perfume, its fun for everyday or that perfect amount of sweet and floral for a night out on the town.

VB Nail Polish

Last but not least is the new Nails Inc polish designed by Mrs. Victoria Beackham herself. I am OBSESSED with Nails Inc polishes and to have a color from VB lets just say it took just about a second to find it in my basket. I am a neutral polish lover all the way and this color is such a beautiful shade of milky white pink that I have been wearing for weeks now. She has two shades but I felt like I would have worn this shade more then the fun and vibrant orange shade she had. You can check out your local Sephora to give these shade a try before you buy! 

If any of you have been absolutely LOVING something lately let me know, I would love to try out some of the products that you cant live without =).

Shelter Island by Bond No.9

One of the many things I love about a change of season is switching up fragrances. It is no secret that I love perfume and especially when it comes to Bond No.9 scents. The newest addition to their line is Shelter Island which is quickly becoming my go to daily scent (Sorry Central Park South!) First I have to say that I was immediately loving the bottle, I am a huge stripes fan and usually find myself gravitating to them either when shopping or just getting dressed in the morning. Being that this new scent embodies the chic and laid back essence of a summer on the Island the clean and crisp navy and white nautical stripes are the perfect addition to your summer wardrobe.

Now the actual fragrance is the perfect combination of citrus, sweet musk and spice, when I first read the notes that it contained I immediately thought it was going to be the perfect scent for your guy or even the perfect Fathers Day gift, but I was completely wrong (well kind of). It is the perfect scent for your guy but it is also the perfect scent for yourself! It is hands down one of my favorite unisex scents that I have ever smelt in my life, hence why I can not stop wearing it! The actual oils in this parfum will blow your mind, some of my favorite notes are the black pepper, white lilies, sandalwood and musk (told you it was the perfect combination!) This is going to be such a beautiful addition to my Bond No.9 collection and I have really been enjoying blending it with my Saks For Her, Mothers Day and Sag Harbor. Hope you all enjoy and until next time Happy Blending!

My Current Obsession

 

Laura Mercier FIg

Thanks to the holidays I have gotten an abundance of goodies to try. Lately I have not been able to get enough of this Laura Mercier Fresh Fig Set that I got from my wonderful boy friend. This set includes all of  the essentials one may need either for everyday or perfect for traveling.  This particular set came with a travel fragrance, Body wash, Body Butter and a hand cream and they are all AMAZING! This fragrance isn’t too over powering and sweet, it gives you just a subtle fresh smell that perks you up. I also really enjoy how simple and elegant looking the packaging is with the crisp silver bottles and the pop of fresh lavender color of the label.

Another goodie from Laura Mercier that I got was the sample of hand creams in all of her signature scents! (yes the fig comes in this one too). I am addicted to hand creams, probably because I never like when my hands feel dry after using so much anti-bacterial or from constantly washing your hands. I love how cute all of these are and obviously they all smell amazing so it was hard to figure out which I wanted to use first!

Like many of you I live for a good deal and an awesome sale but I can’t fib and say that whenever I go into saks that I don’t drool all over the beautiful items that I covet. Since valentines is always a fun day filled with love both giving and receiving I decided to make a fun little shopping guide for all of my fashion obsessed readers (myself included). I hope you all enjoy these picks and feel free to leave a couple of your favorite splurge worthy V-Day gifts.
