Crushing On: April Beauty

Ah April. One day it’s snowing, the next it’s 80 degrees! You also have a lot of rain to worry about… (May flowers anyone?) A serious perk is all of the new spring products launching that are fun to try out. Here are my favorite april products to keep your skin moisturized, but not oily….

Crushing On: March Beauty

Ahh March! How refreshing? You have one foot in the door to spring, one foot still in winter. Your skincare & beauty routine need to accommodate warmer weather, and the occasional snowstorm (or two). You kind of need products that do it all… and some inspirational pieces as well to look forward to the upcoming…

Crushing On: Bathleisure

The days are gone where it was unacceptable to leave the house in anything resembling your favorite pajamas. Now, in fact, we’re in an age that finds, silk slips, visible negligee, and slipper-resembling shoes appropriate for day & night. Bathleisure is officially a thing! Here is some inspo for this trend, because there’s a big…

Crushing On: December Beauty

Call me Mrs. Productive, or Mrs Proactive. Basically just nominate me for an award for being on time for once. Seriously, I got December beauty out before mid-december. Hallelujah. Feel free to experiment with makeup right now, try a bold lip, sparkly shadow, and glitzy nails. And as great this time of year can be…

Crushing On:Winter Coats

Yup, it’s that time of year again. You know.. when it could be 70 or it could be 30? Well, at least up here in the Northeast. It’s really a good thing though because you get an excuse each year to update your wardrobe to something warmer, because no matter where you live the temperatures…

Crushing On: Shimmer & Shine

Here’s the thing about working retail during the holiday season: you start prepping late October and live vicariously through your customers. It may not sound appealing, but I actually love it. The second those sparkily, special edition, carefully selected beauty displays come out I am ready to celebrate (and spend). Friends and family come into…

Crushing On: November Beauty

Have you noticed? The air is cooler, the holiday decorations are up, special packaging is in Sephora stores (those cute mini lipstick packs, guh), the Holiday season is upon us! This is such a magical time of year .. but maybe not so magical for your skin? My November beauty list includes some good-for-your-skin picks…

Crushing On: Greige Lips

On the year that black lipstick can be worn during the day (and not just on halloween) your favorite beige lipstick just appears blah. This fall make your favorite nude lip color cooler… literally! Balancing Act. To avoid looking like a corpse, balance out your cool lips with a warm rose or bronze shade dusted…

Crushing On:Fall Shoes

Out of all of the things to love about fall I think everyone can agree that new shoes are among the most exciting! This year there’s something for everyone from clean & casual sneakers to sultry over the knee boots and fun & unexpected ankle booties made of velvet. Check out my favorites & indulge…

Crushing On: Fall Nails.

Say goodbye to corals & cobalt… at least for now! Seriously though, there comes a time when your brights seem out of place and in move the shades of plum & auburn. That time is now. Check out my favorite fall shades. A Copper-Red like Revlon  Uninhibited. 2. A Terra-Cotta Red (reddish brown) like Vinylux in Vermilion.  3. A dusty…

Crushing On: Your Fall Wardrobe

Sorry all you Summer lovers but I have news: Fall is coming, and it will be here before we know it. I’ve tried to be respectful of all those hanging on to hot summer days for dear life, but I simply just cant any longer. I’m not the only one, Dunkin released their pumpkin line,…

Crushing On: Summer Skirts

I seriously love how far style has come in the past several years. It’s gone from everybody wearing the same clothes from the same 3 brand name outlet shops to a full incorporation and celebration of diversity. Never would I think you would see a 70’s denim button-up pencil skirt, a 50’s pleated midi skirt,…
