I should have known when Saks Fifth Avenue San Antonio asked me to come get my makeup done that it would not be the ordinary makeover. I am not sure if it was the hand massage or the great beauty tips that I liked more. When I first arrived at the Chanel counter I was greeted by a radiant blonde, Paige. She was so helpful and sweet, but her Gwen Stefani blonde hair is what really got me! Once I settled in, I started the day with skincare. Annie gave me a facial that almost made me fall asleep from comfort. She used a purifying cream mask, masque destressant purete, now doesn’t that just sound lovely. After that she introduced me to the Chanel line, Sublimage, a skin miracle in a bottle. After my skin was prepped, Marilyn started my makeup journey by doing my color. She used beautiful eye colors with names like Seduction and Espresso, they really gave a fall feel to my look. Then with the finale of my makeover the guest artist, Daniel polished and perfected my look. He introduced me to Chanel’s cream eyeshadows, they are perfect for the low maintenance girl like me! Needless to say Saks San Antonio and the Chanel team gave me the star treatment. I ended up leaving with some amazing products like the cream eyeshadow and the le blanc primer. I have to admit that I have been using samples of the Chanel Sublimage facial moisturizing lotion and it is A-freaking-MAZING!
Just a tip from me, make an appointment with your local Saks Fifth Avenue beauty specialist, it is worth it. Whether you need anti-aging skincare advice or tips on how to wear a smokey eye they will help guide you in the right direction.
Big thank you again to Saks Fifth Avenue San Antonio, XO!
Because I can’t stop dreaming of Taos, New Mexico I decided to post some of my favorite photos from our trip. I am not saying that being at home is depressing or anything, but compared to the crisp mountain air of Taos it is kind of lame. So please enjoy some daydreaming with me.
So, one of the many perks to working for Free People is that I get to try on the things I have been coveting the most. This late summer love dress is freaking adorable I could not resist prancing around in it! Aside from the perfect fall color pallet this dress is breezy and comfortable. It looks great with my little booties or if I feel like sexing it up I can throw on some nude heels. Basically what I am saying is that this dress is so adorable you probably should buy BOTH colors!
Since buying my first house this year it has been quite the learning experience. Not only is it a never ending money pit but for some reason I always feel the need to redecorate and buy unnecessary things. Anyways, that being said these photos are of some of those unnecessary items I was rambling about. The style of my house is a little eclectic to say the least. I like rich colors and things from around the world. Whether it is moroccan lamps, indian rugs, or skulls from around the ranch casa de Holla Back Girl is on it’s way.
I scored this little jumpsuit from Buffalo Exchange a few weeks ago! Sometimes thrifting can be your best friend, she won’t ever be too drunk to hold your hair after you have had one too many Mexican Martinis. So lock arms with your best friend thrifiting and go have some fun!
Ps- I chose to pair this jumpsuit with my first ever Marc by Marc Jacobs bag (circa 2005) and some BCBGeneration heels!
all accessories were purchased around Taos, New Mexico
When I first laid eyes on this dress at Free People I knew it was meant to be. I feel head over heels in love for this beaded beauty and all of my FP co-workers knew it. My love for this dress was patient and waited until I left for the land of enchantment, New Mexico. There is something about being in the mountains, surrounded by adobe villages and a ton of turquoise that just gives me peace. Naturally when I spotted the headdress in a gift shop I had a sudden urge to put on my new dress and wander through a field. My beau Vinny (@vinny_photo) thought we were on a relaxing vacation, little did he know he would be put to work almost every day photographing me. That being said, there will be many more follow up posts from our week in the wonderful wilderness.
I have had this Bevello Summer Dress for awhile now and it has become a repeat offender in quest to beat the heat down here in Texas. On a day when all I want to do is strip down and jump in some ice cold water, this dress comes in at a close second! Basically what I am trying to tell you is to go to Bevello and snatch up their Summer dresses before the season ends, trust me you will thank me later! Go to Bevello.Com to find a store in your area!
A few words to describe my shoe collection: eclectic, random, and a hodge podge of styles. The number one style of shoe I wear regularly are flats. Whether its a pair of worn in loafers or shiny ballet flats, I wear my flats to the ground! So it is no surprise that these Alice in the City glitter flats made by Ellie shoes were instantly on my feet! I have a lot of friends who are scared away by glitter and sparkle on a shoe, but a simple pair like these can be worn with everything. I paired them with one of my favorite rompers from Forever21. The look is perfect for running around during the day or for a dinner date. Later this week ill show you how to wear them on a night out on the town! Take a chance and add some sparkle to your wardrobe with these Ellie Resort flats…you won’t regret it. Did I mention that they are heaven to walk on?
