On My Radar 2

A few weeks back I mentioned that I was really into rose gold.  And that still stands.  I’ve been rocking my newest Catbird earring (a heart in rose gold), along with my 2 others daily!  But I am still partial to yellow gold – and do wear it daily!

I also love how a pair of gold sandals or flats can really dress up a look (perfect with jeans and a white t-shirt).  And while I’m not normally a sneaker person, the gold New Balance are currently on my wish list!  

Do you have any favorites when it comes to wearing gold?

~ Currently Craving: Little White Dresses ~

Lately I’ve been lusting over little white dresses!  They are the perfect counterpart to the little black dress – and totally right for spring!  To keep it from looking too bridal – I want short and flirty, maybe some lace or crochet, and more of a bohemian vibe!

My birthday is next week – and there is always a birthday brunch celebration with my fellow March baby Daria!  And I’m thinking I definitely want to wear a little white dress!  A spray tan is a must, along with a bright pink mani/pedi!  

Below are some dress options!  Let me know your thoughts in the comments below!

Lipstick

I’m so excited about the newest Julep makeup item – Light On Your Lips!  This new lipstick will be launching in March and it comes in 6 fun shades!  It will retail for $22 – but if you’re a Maven you can add one to you March Box for $10.99!

Here’s the details…Light On Your Lips is a full coverage lipstick that goes on weightless.  It’s also super hydrating with shea butter, antioxidant-rich botanical extracts, and Julep’s Power Cell Complex™.  

Of course I had to scoop one up in my Maven box for March – and I’m anxiously awaiting its arrival!  Let’s take a look at the colors available!

Chit Chat

Happy Hour

Primp

Twirl

Stepping Out

Tutu

In typical fashion I’m drawn to Primp the most!  But I’m also into Chit Chat!  I think both pinks are beautiful, but I never feel like I can pull off a pink lipstick!!...

My love for Stila’s Kitten Eye Shadow has been mentioned many times here.  I just love how perfect it is!  It is the shadow that I start every eye makeup look with!  This nude pink color is the perfect neutral!

Kitten comes in a few other Stila products, including Convertible Color and Lip Glaze.  And shockingly I have never tried them!

Well that’s going to stop right now!  Stila is offering the Smitten With Kitten Set that includes all 3 products for the low price of $20!

Convertible Color is lipstick and blush all in one compact!  The Kitten color is perfect for highlighting I think!

And Lip Glaze’s are one of my favorite Stila products!  Just click and instantly get color and shine!  And your lips stay hydrated too!

You can get the Smitten With Kitten Set online at Stila...

~ Skincare Sunday: Cleansing Oil ~

Skincare Sunday

I began using oil to cleanse my face a little over a year ago.  It was strange at first to use oil…but now I can’t wash my face with anything else!!!  For those who are a bit lazy  when it comes to washing your face each night – I think oil based cleansers are actually better!  Since you have to put the cleanser on dry skin – you get to skip the step of wetting your face!  Then just use a wash cloth to gently wipe away the cleanser and dirt from the day!

If you haven’t tried cleansing with oil yet – definitely check it out!  There are a variety of brands out there – and a price point for every budget!!  My two favorites are EstheCeuticals CitriCleanser and Kari Gran  Cleansing Oil!

See below for more options!

On My Radar 2

Since it’s time to show off our feet in cute sandals (at least here in Arizona) – it means that it’s time for hot pink nails!  

I LOVE having a bright pink on my toes – it instantly puts me in a good mood!  Lately I’ve been taking the pink to my fingers as well.  Even though the brighter colors show their chips quicker – I have to say I’m loving having a pop of pink on my fingers too!  

Below are some options in the hot pink nail polish department!  Let me know who has your favorite shade in the comments below!

The Maven window opened this morning – and we have the POP Collection for March!  This collection is mostly pastels and a new finish called “soft focus” which is a semi matte.  I have to say, I’m not all that excited for the polish colors, since I think they are pretty similar to what we saw in January.  

What I am excited about?  The newest beauty items!!  Julep has introduced Light On Your Lips Lipstick in 6 shades!  It’s full coverage, ultra moisturizing and feels totally weightless!  I”m so excited to try these out!  They have also introduced a lip liner – Get In Line Invisible Lip Liner that goes on clear and is waterproof!  As well as a liquid eye liner that is designed to stay put for 12 hours!  

As usual there is a special St...

While my friends on the east coast keep getting pounded with snow (and my boss is on her way to Boston this weekend) – I’m enjoying the beautiful spring weather here in Arizona!  And that means that it’s sandal time!  Of course first that means a pedicure so my toes are ready to be seen!

Below are some sandals I’m eyeing for this year – and yes, for some reason I’m into Birkenstocks!  While at the same time I’ve having flashbacks to high school – I love the rose gold color!  So – I’m off to the nail salon to get my feet in shape – and then to mall to enjoy some new sandals!

The weather is really heating up here in Arizona – it’s basically been in the upper 70s, low 80s all week!  YAY!

Below are some sundresses that I’ve been eyeing!  Let me know if you have any favorite stores for fun spring sundresses!

~ Birchbox Review: Rent the Runway ~

Product Review Logo

This month Birchbox gave us the option of choosing our box ahead of time!  You could either choose 1 sample (and the other 4 would be surprises) or you could go with the Rent The Runway curated box!  I went with Rent The Runway!  I also did an add-on to my box this month – which I’ll go into more details on in a different post!  

If you’re not familiar with Rent The Runway – it is an amazing site that let’s you borrow (rent) designer dresses for those special occasions!  The cost is a fraction of the price you would pay if you actually purchased the gown – and you always get a back up size with every order!  You choose how long you need the dress for – it gets shipped to you (along with the backup size) and you just drop it in the mail after your event!
