Lash L’amour Special with Rue La La

June 22, 2011 |  by  |  Bridal Events, Bridal Fashion, Faves, Health and Beauty  |  No Comments  |  Share

Being the savvy girl that I am, I’m always on the lookout for the best deals possible. Today I’ve come across a special for Lash L’amour on Rue La La. It’s one of Hollywood’s best kept celebrity secrets and now they’ve made their way here to the East coast, Newton to be exact. Whether you’re looking for natural everyday lash extensions to especially dramatic wedding day lash extensions, they do it all. Speaking from experience, I’ve had lash extensions done before and they are the greatest especially in the summer months where you can step out of the house without mascara and liner! Also a plus for swimmers and beach/poolside bums like myself.

There are 3 buying options:
1. $97 for a full set of natural lash extensions
2. $147 for a full set of dramatic lash extensions
3. $298 for five lash refills

So ladies, jump on this deal while it’s hot. Extensions last about 8 weeks and you can redeem this anytime between today and December 23, 2011. Visit Rue La La now to get all the details on this great steal!

Change it up with Loreal!

Summer is just around the corner and that means it’s time to put away all the dark colored nail polish, lipstick, and hair color! Usually I prefer to go lighter in the summer days with some highlights, but you can also change things up on a budget. Recently I’ve discovered the new Loreal Sublime Mousse Permanent Hair Color. It’s the easy to use and no mess! It’s the newest thing in at home hair dye where it comes out as a plush foam rather than a creamy/drippy solution. I found that 1 bottle was more than enough to dye my medium length hair. It also comes with a tube of conditioner that smells divine and a little definitely goes a long way. Recently I’ve tried the Iced Dark Brown and I find it to be more reflective in the light which is great!  So whether you’re looking for a quick touch up or a dramatic change, I definitely recommend Loreal Sublime Mousse. One of my favorite do-it-yourself dyes by far, so go out and grab a box today!

Happy Friday! As many of you may have seen or heard, today is the premiere of Emily Giffin’s Something Borrowed! I absolutely loved the book so I hope the movie is going to be just as good.  Gotta love the cast – Ginnifer Goodwin (who played Gigi in He’s Just Not That Into You) as Rachel, the perpetual good girl, and Kate Hudson as Darcy, the engaged BFF who gets all the attention. Grab the girlfriends (and wine) and head out for a girl’s night out!

I hope they make part 2 with Something Blue, which tells everything from Darcy’s point-of-view and is just as addicting!

Splash of SPRING*

April 3, 2011 |  by  |  Faves, Health and Beauty, Tips & Trends  |  No Comments  |  Share

It’s finally time to say “see you later” to Old Man Winter and welcome Spring!  The sun was out to play all day today and it motivated me to do some major spring cleaning and remove some of those dark winter colors and replace them with some bright and fun ones!

First things first, I took off that dark maroon nail polish called “wined up” by Sally Hansen and replaced it with a bright, and vibrant color.

My current favorite: “Peachy Breeze”

Sally Hansen Insta-Dri Fast Dry Nail Polish

The color changed my mood completely! If you’re a no hassle, always-on-the-go type of girl like me, Sally Hansen has a great product called Insta-Dri Fast Dry Nail Polish.  It’s easy to put on and quick to dry.  Try this product and see if it’ll brighten your day like it did mine!  You can find these sold in stores like CVS and Target.

Here’s just a few of the new spring colors but remember to check out all the different types of fun colors that are available for some spring time inspiration~!

Happy Spring!

Something for Everyone in your Bridal Party

Tis the season brides, so don’t forget to gift your bridal party. What better way to show your appreciation than with something shiny, sparkly, and hand-picked just for them. Here are some of my fave gift ideas without breaking the bank this holiday season.

Pandora bracelets are all the fad this season. You can’t even step into the store without first waiting in line, trust me, I speak from experience. However, the wait is well worth it. Choose from endless personalized combinations that reflect almost every event and style.

Another favorite that truly sparkles is Swarovski. Here you will find unique pieces of jewelry and figurines selected, cut, and designed by the company itself. Don’t let all the sparkle intimidate you from entering the store. There are actually quite a few items offered that are wallet friendly. Here are some more bracelet and charm options that Swarovski offers.

So no matter how different each ladies’ taste is, there’s something for everyone with any of these gifts!

Something Old and…Dreamy?

I absolutely love this Diana F+ camera!  This is the remake of the 1960’s popular Diana film camera design.  This camera produces lo-fi images, giving off an amazing dreamy feel.  There are so many style options to choose from and they all create an artistic touch to the image without having to touch up each one.

Have a friend use this camera to take some gorgeous pictures on or for your special day.  It would be a great addition to your professional pics!
