VALENTINE'S DAY BEAUTY PICKS 2014

Get gorgeous this Valentine's Day with a few of my favorite (beauty) things!

Had a long week?  Not feeling date-ready?  Try Dr. Brandt's "Laser Tight"... it will have you feeling fresh and awake in no time.  The Clé de Peau Refining Fluid Foundation has quickly become one of my all-time favorite products.  It's pricey, but the lightweight (yet flawless) coverage makes this one totally worth it.  Armani's Flash Lacquer is an must have for your cosmetic bag.  Shade #107 is the perfect light pink shade for me.  Great on its own, also gently tones down too-bright (or dark) lipsticks.

SPLURGE VS STEAL: WEIGHTLESS VOLUME



In my life-long quest for lush, voluminous hair, I've tried pretty much anything I could get my hands on. Finally I've found a few products that actually make a difference. Both of these products add light volume without the dull, dry finish of products past. The spray-on "lotion" from John Frieda is easy to apply and despite the drugstore price, it lends the same great volume as some of the pricier sprays I've tried! Lift Vertige, from Kerastase's new styling line has given me the best results yet. The gel formula is light and not at all "tacky". The UV filter and heat-protective benefits are an added bonus, especially for my highlighted hair!

Now tell me... what's your secret?

STYLE AT ANY PRICE: GREEN DIAL WATCHES

I fell for this vintage Rolex watch a while back.  I love the cool malachite dial... so unusual!  No longer available (and ever-so-slightly out of my price range), I've searched high and low for a pretty substitution.  Thanks to Michael Kors, I've finally found one.  The Michael Kors "Felicity" watch has that gorgeous green dial with a few sparkling crystals to boot!  So happy...
