posted on: Tuesday, September 30, 2014

To all you single ladies.... take a look into what I call the most sophisticated bachelorette pad!!
The bold structure and elegant  feminine features is the perfect abode for the stylish woman.
 I am so in love with all the black and  gold finishes, which balance out the classic combination of colors.

Definitely taking some of these ideas into our new home which is currently under remodel.

Septemeber Beauty Discoveries

posted on: Monday, September 29, 2014

I love finding products that work well with my skin and body chemistry. Here are some AMAZING beauty finds that I discovered over the past month during my travels to Toronto and Sweden. 3 different countries in 3 months can do a lot more damage to the skin than you think...So, time to repair my skin for the fall season!

Mr. Bean Coffee Scrub MANDARIN: Ever wonder what the fuss is about with coffee scrubs?  ....well, caffeine stimulates and targets almost every major problematic skin issue most people suffer from such as, eczema, psoriasis, age spots, stretch marks and cellulite.

What I love most about this particular scrub is the extra added ingredients:
Coconut Oil - Hydrates and Moisturizes the skin
Demerara Sugar and Himalayan Salt - will exfoliate your skin removing blackheads, whiteheads, acne and most of all dead skin.
Cocoa and Vitamin E - High in antioxidants which nourish and protect the skin while also promoting cell repair and rejuvenation.
Soooo excited to use this product!!  available to ship worldwide here:
Mr. Bean Body Care

MAC Powder Brush 134: MAC never seems to disappoint me when it comes to makeup tools. Loose mineral powder is more of an everyday wear for me, so I was on the hunt to find the PERFECT brush. This extra large paddle shape natural fibre brush is designed to apply powder to the Face and Body. The most incredible thing about MAC tools is that they last FOREVER!
Get it HERE

Coco Noir Perfume- What girl doesn't feel fabulous in anything Chanel? Coco Noir strikes scents of Grapefruit, Bergamot, Rose, Jasmine, Indonesian Patchouli and Saddlewood. A combinations that is intimate and seductive all adding warmth for this season.

NCLA x Fanny Lykman Nail Polish: Swedish mega blogger Fanny Lykman teamed up with NCLA to collaborate on a fun and bold collection. I absolutely love NCLA their lacquers. They are non chemical base,  and lasts 5x as long as most nail polish. The collection consists of  The color "NAKED" can be seen on my fingernails in my previous post. I was fortunate enough to meet Fanny through mutual friends, she is a complete doll!

Clarisonic Aria: After years of eyeing down the Clarisonic I FINALLY got one. Originally designed to be used by skin care experts during treatments, is now the number one dermatologist recommended cleansing brush in the industry. Apply cleanser to brush head or moistened skin, then simply follow the  60 second routine below:

With a wide range of interchangeable brushes targeted for different skin types I went with the delicate skin brush ( Baby Blue ) and the sensitive brush  ( White ) seen on the device above. Use about 1-2 times a week for radiant skin!

To my European readers get it on KICKS!

Dior ONE Essential EYES: The Cell rejuvenation and detoxification of ONE Essentials leaves my eye area visibly smoother and rested, while diminishing my dark circles, which I have always had a problem with since my teenager years. I am obsessed with this line from Dior.

Favorite Summer Skincare

posted on: Tuesday, September 9, 2014

Ok so I wanted to share with all of you my go to SKINCARE PRODUCTS that I hauled with me to Ibiza! I knew it would be extremely hot and humid and my skin would need intensive care! Here is some of my new discoveries that I absolutely LOVE and will continue to use and HIGHLY recommend - these products used usually at bedtime! Post sunscreen of course! 

Since I completelty forgot my actually purchased this Clinique Anti Blemish Foam Cleanser here in Ibiza ( I forgot mine ;) is a  super mild and light weight cleanser that prevents blemishes and redness that I tend to get from the sun , clears away access dirt and oil from facial sunscreens and leaves skin super soft and smooth!

Hydrochloric Acid + Vitamin C Serum  is A MUST HAVE - it is clinically proven to produce collagen and reduce fine lines - not to mention the Hydrochloric acid is vegan ;) I am obsessed!! Use after cleanser! other suggestions below on product thumbnails.

I have been in search of a new serum for a while so I picked up a small sample size of the DIOR ONE essential Super Serum as the humidity and dry air is rough on my skin - super serum detoxifies , regenerates and restores - I will definitely be purchasing the full 1oz bottle.

I accidentally stumbled upon EYES by To go Spa at my local beauty supply and am instantly hooked! Keeps my eyes tired eyes completely hydrated , moisturized and refreshed!  Being paraben free it is great for the thin delicate skin under the eyes! LOVE it

For an all round body moisturizer that lasts Elizabeth Arden 8 Hour although VERY thick it Works!!  especially for dry flaky skin - I usually apply before bedtime!

Look forward to more beauty posts!!!

Happy Friday!
