A Blissfully Blessed Weekend…

In Weekend Chronicles on March 23, 2014 at 4:08 pm

Happy Sunday Darlings! Well today it’s a cold 43 degrees on this 4th day of spring.  Yesterday, we got to a whopping 67 degrees in Washington DC, and I must say quite a few people felt the need to take all their clothes off.  Not me!!! I was dressed in lovable layers.

Until I see a constant 75 degrees, I’m not removing too much.  This was me yesterday, browsing in Marshall’s, who had one of the best selfie taking mirrors.

Don't settle

I hope you’re having a beautiful and relaxed Sunday. Wishing you a Blissfully Blessed week!

Sugarplum Booties For Spring…

Jeffrey Campbell Sugarplum Bootie, Maylana's Chronicles, Maylana's Closet, #jeffreycampbell

Hi Darlings!  For those of you in the DC metro area, I hope you’re enjoying this freaky 70+ degree weather. Unfortunately, we’re about to take another big dip in temperature, within the next couple of days, so enjoy this gorgeous weather while you can.  If spring ever decides to show up, these Sugarplum booties by Jeffrey Campbell should be a definite must have.  

It appears this style of bootie is all the rage for 2014, {Sarah Jessica Parker, has an open toed version, Zara also has something similar, to name a few}.  I don’t really follow trends, but this is a classic that has been around for quite some time.

Available in a multitude of interesting colours and textures, I do have a soft spot for these beauties in pastel pink leather.  Available at Nasty Gal

Clinique-Moisture_Surge_Intense_Skin_Fo[1]

 

 

Back in November, I received a nice size sample of Clinique’s Moisture Surge Intense, and I have to say, I absolutely love it.  After following the usual 3 steps, wash, clarifying lotion, and moisturizer (for full disclosure, I don’t use the Clinique soap anymore, as I much prefer Burt’s Bees Soap Bark and Chamomile Cleansing Cream); you then apply Clinique’s Moisture Surge, by massaging it into your skin. What this product does for your skin is short of amazing, you have an instant glow, and if used at night (which I do), you wake up with your skin feeling really soft.  Your skin literally drinks it in.

Since I’ve been using this product, I have definitely noticed a difference in the texture of my skin, which now feels much more hydrated and supple (and of course, drinking lots of water helps).  For those of you, like me, with mature skin, this cream is a must have to add to your beauty arsenal. Buy yours here

Also try Clinique’s Moisture Surge which is fantastic (and also in my beauty case) for hydrating your skin during those hot and humid summer months.

Have yourselves a beautified and glorious day!

I’ve been catching glimpses of the Wendy Williams show over the last few weeks, and I’ve been quite intrigued by the fabulous crystal cat eye reading glasses she’s being wearing.  After a little Google search, I found out that they are made by a company called Divalicious.

These beauties are not for the faint of heart, I absolutely love them, and the prices are amazing, starting at $58.00, where you could treat yourself to a couple of pairs and take them to your optician to have your prescription lens dropped in if you need more than readers.  There are also sparkly eyeglass cases, if you’re so inclined.  How Bold!

Today is Be Bold Friday.  Go after what you want to do; be who you want to be and move through the discomfort you feel as you stretch beyond your present conditions.  Believe me, its worth it!

Love, Creativity, Blessings & Light

I’m Going Naked Again…

In Daily Musings on November 21, 2013 at 10:08 am


Naked 3

It’s the one we’ve been waiting for and it’s finally here!!!  The release of Urban Decay’s Naked 3.  Just by the photos alone, this palette looks gorgeous.  The much-anticipated release of Naked 3, contains 12 shades of rose hued neutrals, from the palest, shimmery pink to the deepest black matte with red micro-glitter, which I think will look fantastic on practically all skin tones.  Urban Decay never disappoints with their cosmetics, and the Naked range have become huge best sellers, and very popular among women in the know.

I’m looking forward to owning this new collection, it will make a fabulous stocking filler, hint, hint

Purchase yours at Urban Decay ~ $52.00

Another Clinique Story…

In Beauty on November 5, 2013 at 10:42 am

Clinique, Dramatically Different Moisturizing Lotion+, Moisturizing Lotion

I’ve been using Dramatically Different Moisturizing Lotion {DDML} for approximately 30 years.  I’ve drifted to other brands over the years, Avon’s Anew being one of them, which is a product I actually liked; but I always came back to that yellow lotion in the square bottle. DDML always left my skin feeling wonderful, never greasy, my skin would just drink it in; and for someone who had a true T-Zone, this product just worked for me.  I truly did not think a moisturizer could get any better.

Then… I received a sample of the new and improved Dramatically Different Moisturizing Lotion+ {DDML+}, Wow!!! This new and improved version, is, in my opinion amazing!  it actually gives the skin a luminous glow; it hydrates more; there’s something different about the formula, it’s smoother, richer, still, without being greasy; there’s something more, but I can’t quite put my finger on it; as my skin has matured, and become dryer, DDML+  is perfect for me.  What I do know, is that Clinique has managed to improve upon a sure thing.

I worked for Clinique many moons ago, back home in London; who would have thought after all these years, I’d still be touting their products, without having to  wear that white lab coat!

Clinique Eyes…

Clinque Lash Doubling Mascara, Clinique, #Clinique, #lashdoublingmascara

People compliment me all the time on my eyelashes {Thank you!}.  I am blessed with naturally long eyelashes, but I will be the first to admit, I also get a lot of help from Clinique’s Lash Doubling Mascara.  I don’t know what’s in this silver tube, but it’s nothing short of magic. It truly does lengthen and thicken your lashes, without making you look as though you have two gigantic moths stuck to your  eyes.

The potion in this magic tube, lasts all day, and comes off easily with eye make- up remover or your favourite cleanser {I use Burt’s Bees Soap Bark and Camomile Cleanser).

For me, Clinque’s Lash Doubling Mascara is worth every penny of its $16.00.  Available at most department stores, and at Clinique.com
