Beachwear Cover-Ups

May 20, 2010

What do you cover-up with when you go to the beach? Probably shorts and a tank, or a sundress. But what if you’re on vacation and you want to look nice and just a little stylish? Then, the tunic is your friend!

I’ve searched high and low for some tunics for my Florida vacation coming up and I’d like your opinion on which one you like best, ok? Thanks!

1. Embellished Tunic from Victoria’s Secret: Casual, yet very chic.

2. Embroidered Boho Tunic: Fun and playful, yet very stylish

3. Elan Embroidered Tunic: Casual and classy.

4. Lillie Top: I know they have this paired with jeans, but I think it’d make a fab beach cover up, don’t you?!

Light Sweaters Made For California Winters

December 11, 2009

With the beautiful California weather, you really don’t need to wear anything heavier than a light sweater or coat. And one of the advantages of living by the beaches out here are having all the cool surf stores! Nope, I’m not a surfer and to disprove the myth that surfer brands only sell surfer looking stuff, I’ve picked out some of the cutest light-California-sweaters perfect for the non surfer. These can all be found at my favorite surf store, Becker’s Surf.

1. Hurley Winchester Plaid Jacket

Though this jacket looks thick, it’s actually no thicker than a regular hoodie material. I know because I’m wearing it now. The hood is removable as well. (This link is from Buckle, but I got mine at Becker’s Surf.. for cheaper!)

2. Element Institute Sweater

I love this sweater so much because of its lightweight material and the asymmetrical closure on the front. The large buttons ad a great touch as well!

3. Lucy Love Riding Jacket

It looks like a heavy pea coat, but it’s just a soft cover up that’s made to fool ya! Plus the contrast in the colors and buttons give this jacket a nice touch.

Homeopathic Beauty by Korres

October 28, 2009

If you’re an organic, all-natural makeup junkie like me, or just want something that won’t irritate your skin, then look no further. Korres‘ beauty products are all natural and they are among the most environmentally friendly and skin compatible products available on the beauty market these days. It’s nice to know that some companies actually care about what you put on your face! They have all natural extracts with antioxidants that are proven to transform your skin. Don’t believe me? Try it yourself. All their stuff is available at Sephora.

If you’re not sure what to try out, here are a few of my favorites:

Monoi Oil Bronzing Powder: I LOVE LOVE LOVE this product. Not only does it lightly hydrate your skin so it doesn’t appear all flaky and dry, it provides a light shimmer to give you that sunkissed glow.

Pomegranate Cleaning and Makeup Removing Pads: How convenient are these makeup removers? It makes taking off makeup so easy and fun. Not to mention they offer antioxidant protection and smell delicious!

Wild Rose Foundation: This foundation is light, provides a dewy look yet gives the coverage that you need. The best part about it is that is has SPF 20 so you don’t need to be thinking about putting on sunscreen. It also has your daily dose of Vitamin C!

bare minerals.. it really works!

December 10, 2007

I know you’ve seen the infomercials for Bare Minerals makeup – I mean, who hasn’t? They play it over and over and over. Well like many people, I was very skeptical about purchasing another expensive piece of makeup that didn’t really do the trick. I needed some new concealer and in an effort to get out the rain yesterday, I took shelter in Sephora. I’ve tried Benefit’s concealer but it was too pasty and didn’t go on as smooth as I wanted it bare.jpgtoo. Then I bought Stila (comes in a tube) and I though that was too liquid-y and it made my face shiny in certain spots, then when I’d put on powder, it would just darken those spots.

Yesterday I tried Bare Minerals concealer and let me just say that it works! It goes on like a cream but beacause it’s a powder it is very smooth and easy to apply. It does a GREAT job covering it up any blemishes and it’s not messy at all. I have very dry skin and this did not make it look dry! 2 thumbs up! Highly Recommended!
