P&G Unstopable Review




I'm excited to share my most recent partnership with P&G to review their new line of Unstopables products and boy do they make my house smell super nice and fresh. I got to try out a few of the items in the line which includes fabric refresher, air refresher, scented oil warmer, candle, and in-wash scent booster beads. P&G partnered with iconic interior designer Nate Berkus and fragrance aficionado Carlos Huber to create this collection. Unstopables fabric refresher and air refresher are infused with a proprietary long-lasting fragrance technology that slowly releases freshness over time to continually give the air and your fabric a fragrant boost enhancement. One of the amazing parts is that you get many days of freshness with the new products! 


My favorite tip from Nate Berkus is his take on how to switch things up at home. He said, "When you get bored with your room, the easiest thing to do is switch it up! Consider moving your sofa to anther wall, bring in a side table from another room, swap to your throw pillows. You can totally refresh a room without spending a cent. For curtains, couches and rugs that can't be washed, a few spritzes of Unstopables Fabric Refresher will add long-lasting freshness."


Generally I really love candles because of their beautiful scents and how they light up a room. I especially loved how P&G had candles in the Unstopables collection because I got to mix and match my favorite scent of candle with its fabric refresher, air refresher, oil warmers and more to reinforce the scent. My favorite scent was the purple colored ones called Lush, it was lavender and vanilla. (yum!) 

After learning about the Unstopables collection, I am super excited to share this with you guys because these new products are truly amazing, you'll be surprised by how adding scent to your home can make a big difference and bring everything together.

bareMinerals Complexion Rescue Review








- Products -

Happy Thursday!

 bareMinerals does it again, after launching their bareSkin liquid foundation back in May of 2014. They kicked off 2015 with a brand new tinted hydrating gel cream foundation. Image a foundation that is the perfect combination of a BB, CC, & tinted moisturizer. I was lucky enough partner with bareMinerals and try out their new Complexion Rescue and have been using it everyday for the past month! Like all other bareMinerals products, this foundation is actually good for your skin, it is loaded with skin-loving humectants and mineral electrolytes that will hydrate and leave your skin dewy, natural looking, and feeling soft (not oily). 

1. Shake the product
2. Squeeze out a pea size amount onto the Smooth Face Brush or finger tips
3. Blend away with the brush or rub in as you would with a moisturizer
4. Wa-la finished!

A few aspects of Complexion Rescue that I especially love about the product is the fact that is absorbs super quickly and how it leaves my skin feeling soft and matte. I've tried many liquid and tinted foundations throughout the years and always hated ones that left my face oily because the rest of my makeup does not apply on well, but that is definitely not the case with Complexion Rescue. It goes on so easily that I can quickly apply another layer for extra coverage and go right into the rest of my makeup routine. 

I've discovered that I prefer to use my fingers to apply Complexion Rescue because I personally prefer to rub/pat the product into the corners of my face, but bareMinerals launched a new brush to compliment the foundation. The new Smoothing Face Brush is super soft and leaves you with a nice airbrushed effect! Complexion Rescue comes in 10 gorgeous shades and it is available now at bareMinerals stores (store locator), Nordstrom, Sephora,  and on bareminersls.com.

bareMinerals has really outdone themselves, I really am obsessed with Complexion Rescue and know you will too! So give it a try and let me know what you think!

Lou & Grey


I styled this gorgeous light grey top with white jeans for a casual weekend look that is perfect for brunch, running errands, and shopping!







Outfit:



This past weekend I had the privilege of visiting my local Lou & Grey store, an Ann Taylor brand and I have to honestly say that I was mesmerized and made my other half follow me around the store for over an hour as I shopped. I adore their style of clothing, the color palette of the items were light and feminine and the vibe was casual yet chic. The store decor fit their items perfectly and being a web-designer by day, I appreciate attention to detail and absolutely loved the attention they put into wrapping up your purchase. Lou & Grey is perfect little place to shop for comfortable everyday items that can be dressed up and or down. I picked up a handful of tops that I can't wait to start incorporating into my wardrobe for workdays and weekends.

4 Spring Picks & HP x360 #BendTheRules





Happy Friday! I'm pretty stoked to partner with HP and Meghan Trainor to share my 4 Spring picks and my experience with the new x360 tablet/laptop all in one! Its already starting to feel like Spring in the Bay Area! The days are getting longer, its not dark out when I leave work, and the temperature is starting to warm up. (Its going to be 77 degrees this Saturday!) And in light of Spring starting, I'm going to share 4 of my Spring picks that were inspired by HP x360's versatile functionality! Before we get to my Spring picks, I'd like to talk about the HP x360 first. Let me first say that it is a pretty cool device, I especially like how versatile it is. You can us it as a laptop, tablet, tent, or stand! Super versatile, portable, and convenient to use in almost any situation. To make things even more exciting, HP has partnered with Meghan Trainor's That Bass Tour to give us all an exclusive access to behind-the-scene info as she travels around for her tour. The interactive and engaging websites helps bring her tour to life and allows fans to connect with her and each other in new innovative ways! 

If you couldn't already tell, my favorite color is pink. I love pink anything and everything. For Spring, I love different shades of pink, pastels, and light-flowy-soft items, here are my 4 picks:

1 / 2 / 3 / 4 / 5 / 6 / 7 / 8 / 9 / 10 / 11 / 12

Have an amazing weekend!

Neutral Shades









Anyone looking forward to the 50 Shades of Grey movie?! I told the other half that we have to watch it Valentine's Day weekend, preferably on Saturday afternoon to avoid the massive crowd. So in light of 50 Shades of Grey, I styled this look with many shades of nude and white. This crop lace top is so pretty and I love the feminine lace detail on the neckline. :)

I can't believe it is already February and Valentine's Day is around the corner!
