don’t leave home without it

I’m always trying new beauty products {I’ve inherited that knack from my mom}, but there are two products I cannot live with out. First is the absolute BEST lip treatment of all time, and I literally stumbled upon this find. I was in a large department store in NYC during the winter and my lips were so chapped {they hurt} I couldn’t imagine going back outside. I saw the Kiehl’s counter and bought the first lip treatment I could get my hands on and have never looked back {that was 4 years ago}. The Kiehl’s lip balm #1 is amazing, no burning, no scent, no flavor. Just what I needed on that freezing cold day in NYC. Not only does it heel chapped lips, it keeps then looking perfectly smooth and slighty shiny. {shhhh….don’t tell but it works so well my bf uses it too}

*Use it over your favorite lipstick for just a little shine!

My second daily use product is Sephora’s mineral face powder. This powder has the perfect combination of coverage, yet still keeps that natural look . After trying drugstore brands, high-end lines and mail order products, this powder is by far the best I have used.

boring to bold

Ok, ok, you’ve heard enough from me on chevron print…. BUT I can’t help but share my latest DIY project! I have had an ikea rug in my kitchen forever, so boring! I knew I wanted color, but not something over-powering. When in doubt, choose chevron! The rug came out perfect {with a little from my mom}.

the look of leather

Finding the right boots, for the right price can be difficult. I tend to spend more on my boots then any other shoes I purchase. I came across these ASOS boots and they could not be more perfect. Made of leather, the perfect shade of tan and under $120! {not too mention ASOS has Free Shipping and Free Returns}

{ASOS Cleo Leather Boots $113.49}

furbish studios

I recently came across the perfect place for ALL types of gifts and accessories. Furbish Studios has put together a unique variety of merchandise and gifts of all kinds. The prices are right too! I included my favorite finds below!

bold & bright

A good friend of mine accidentally ordered two of the same necklace from Forever21 and passed the additional one my way! I absolutely LOVE it, and it’s the perfect statement piece {that looks much more expensive then it really is}. Never under-estimate the Forever21 accessories department.
