Fashion Fix 2018

There is nothing quite as disconcerting as spending an entire morning trying to pull together just the right look for a particular event, only to show up at said event to find that you keep getting mistaken for the wait staff. I just hate it when that happens. After all, I know that black is the go-to fashion essential for all occasions, be it a classically tailored pair of trousers or a slim pencil skirt. And a feminine take on the crisp white blouse is always chic. My mistake was allowing myself to get distracted by a long awaited and much anticipated phone call from my soon-to-be beau (thinking positive here!) and rushing out of the house without properly accessorizing! All it would have taken to differentiate me from the caterers was the gorgeous scarf that I left draped over the back of the sofa. And maybe if I hadn't dashed out the door in such a hurry I wouldn't have forgotten my fabulous new initial bracelet either. And I'm quite certain that had I been properly accessorized, I wouldn't have ended up being handed a tray of hors d'oeuvres by a very cranky man in a chef's toque, along with the admonishment to "stop chattering to the guests and get these crab puffs out there missy!"AG Jeans

Anyhoo, lesson learned darlings! And speaking of accessories, do you know what the best thing about them is? They are completely size independent! No matter how much weight, you have lost or need to lose, no matter what your fitness level or even your income level, when it comes to accessories a girl can always find the perfect accent. I just love the fact that the gorgeous pair of nude skyscrapers I bought to celebrate the first ten pounds lost will look equally stunning with the designer jeans I bought to celebrate meeting my weight loss goal. Which is why I always use accessories as rewards for whatever it is I am trying to accomplish.

So here are a few of the fabulous items I am going to reward myself with for making my New Year's Resolutions a reality — even if it takes me the rest of 2018 to accomplish said goals!

Leather gloves. What a great way to add a little color and style to your cold-weather wardrobe! (Also, style icons Meghan Markle and the Duchess of Cambridge are often seen sporting a great pair of leather gloves!) From sweet scallops  and cozy sheepskin to pretty patents and fun animal prints, luscious leather gloves are a great treat.

Snappy wallet. For the girl who adores handbags, a nifty new wallet is a real treat indeed. It's a quick fix at a fraction of the cost of a handbag, but just as much fun to acquire! So many colorful choices in an abundance of fabrics and styles.

Great wristwatch. I know, I know, who needs a wristwatch when she can always check her cell phone for the time? But can you strap a phone on your arm and make a fashion statement with it? I think not! Watches are fashion accessories darlings! Which is patently apparent in this season's fantastic selection of sleek styles, watches with a feminine flare, and time pieces in bright and bold colors.

Desert Booties. These are going to be my go-to shoes for spring. They are so very versatile — will work as well with a flirty flouncy skirt as with a pair of boyfriend jeans. From felts to sleek leather to brushed suede and in a great selection of colors and heel heights.

Crossbody Bag. I absolutely adore the crossbody style! It is ideal for casual weekends and perfect for toting along on professional outings. I love being able to toss the strap across my shoulder and over my head, knowing that the bag is safe and secure, and both of my hands are free! Just be sure there is plenty of room for all you girly goodies!

Well, there you go girls! Now go start your own reward list!

xoxo,

Get a head start on easy skincare resolutions for the New Year

Ringing in the New Year means focusing on starting new, healthy habits - and healthy skin should be no exception. Creating resolutions is an easy task, but sticking to them all year can be the hardest part. Here are some effortless additions to your skincare routine that you can begin incorporating now to get a head start on those resolutions for 2018!

 

Korres Greek Yogurt Cleansing and Make-up Removing Wipes:

Perfect for on-the-go cleansing, these pre-moistened facial cleansing wipes are formulated with nourishing Greek yoghurt for 2.5 times more skin-nourishing proteins. These make-up removing wipes remove stubborn face and eye makeup while providing skin with the softening, moisturizing properties of chamomile and Greek yoghurt concentrate.

Drink your supplements: Instead of taking on the task of applying topical ointments and creams, drink your daily dose of recommended collagen. With collagen suggested to those ages 25 and up, it’s important you’re getting enough to address fine lines and wrinkles. Taking a collagen shot each day is an easy way to get the recommended dosage for healthy skin inside and out.

IMAGE Skincare’s YANA daily collagen shots: A highly concentrated liquid beauty supplement that helps rebuild and strengthen skin by boosting the body’s natural collagen production. Formulated with a proprietary blend of collagen peptides, ceramides, antioxidants and vitamins helps to support collagen production and restore the essential elements skin needs to regain and maintain its youthful appearance.

Focus on your pores once a week for better looking skin: The average complexion has 200,000 pores—and each and every one looks larger when clogged. Make sure you remove the weeks’ worth of pore clogging debris with just one strip in only 10 minutes.

Bioré Deep Cleansing Pore Strips: Twice as effective as the leading pore cleanser, Bioré Deep Cleansing Pore Strips quickly bond to the dirt and oil buried in each pore and lift out pore-clogging agents while reducing the appearance of pores over time. So add this essential beauty favorite to your regular routine, which only takes 10 minutes, to reveal a fresher and healthier-looking complexion.

Lavanila  The Healthy Deodorant Pure Vanilla 

Switch out products that contain harsh chemicals: Harsh chemicals and ingredients such as Aluminum, Propylene Glycol and Parabens can be found in products you use every day including your traditional deodorant. These chemicals can potentially absorb into the delicate underarm area, a gateway to the infection-fighting lymphatic system and are linked to certain diseases including Breast Cancer. Making a small change to your current routine of applying deodorant is great and effective way to creating healthy skincare habits. Switch to an all-natural alternative.

LAVANILA’s The Healthy Deodorant: Completely free of Aluminum and Parabens, it’s a safe and effective way to fight odor.The multi-tasking formula uses a health-promoting beta-glucan technology packed with anti-oxidants, active botanicals and essential oils to not only fight odor, but condition, soothe and nourish the skin.

Don’t skip the moisturizer: Even during the time of year where your skin may not feel dry, an all-over moisturizer is must for your everyday skincare routine. If you can’t take a moment each morning to moisturize your skin, use a shower-compatible moisturizer to shave off some time.

Curél Hydra Therapy Wet Skin Moisturizer: A breakthrough water-activated formula that instantly sinks into moist skin, diving deep into the surface to soothe, repair, and lock in long-term hydration. Unlike other products, it all happens in the shower and there is no rinsing required – so you can just dry off, dress and go!
