Beauty Hype

It's spring & frankly,I needed a beauty product fix. I decided to do something very differently this shopping spree. Instead of buying tried & true products or making discoveries on my own: I decided to believe the hype! I went after products I've heard all about, highly touted by fashion mags & friends.

First up is Sarah Jessica Parker's new fragrance NYC. It's been heralded as the IT fragrance for summer as the new S&TC movie is only 6 weeks away! SJP herself says, "it's a party in a bottle." I liked the sweet fruity floral fragrance and the packaging is not only pretty, but super potable and easy to toss in an over-stuffed purse. The deciding factor on making it my spring scent was when The Love of My Life said, "You smell great."

Tarte's lip stain in charmed. I'm not sure what lipsurgence is. Tarte promotes it as increasing lip moisture by 6000%. My lips do feel a little tingly & cool when I wear it & since champagne is not something I regularly have at 8a.m. Tarte is going to have to do.

Nars multiple is a great product for Mom's on the go! Cheeks, lips & eyes. It is a great product to throw in my bag & spruce up in 59 seconds or less.

Urban Decay Eyeshadow primer potion has been praised by fashionista Laura forever! It does create a nice palette for eyeshadow. (But I need to buy nicer eyeshadow to truly test it.) The packaging is great, in that its pretty & easy to use.

YSL Touche Eclat - I read a long time ago that this was the one product Victoria Beckham cannot live without. It goes on smoothly & there is no caking or cracking (even after a busy day outdoors & on the playground).

All and all I didn't NEED any of these products, but I sure had fun buying & using them. Very occasionally its fun to revel in the hype!!

All the lovely ladies wear Lilly! Those are my Twincesses in their Kelsea dresses. The rest are from the web sites new additions. The styling is just perfect in these pics. I love it. I have some events this summer. I'm debating ensembles. I love these dresses. I only wish Lilly made them a smidge longer(or added just a lil extra for alterations). I usually have to go to my seamstress and have ANY extra let down. Being the Mommy of 2 toddlers means bending over in the craziest of situations & one wants to feel "covered". What are your favorite dresses for summer?

It Might Get Loud

The documentary "It Might Get Loud" is a must for anyone who truly adores music. I've written music since I was eleven years old. The Edge is a favorite. I really enjoyed this film. Check it out & get inspired by originality and creative freedom celebrated. Beautiful.
