Sweater Dress


Hello, hello - I am back from SLC and back to posting.  Meetings were a whirlwind but it's always great to see my comrades from across the US and Canada and get a chance to catch up a bit.

I also had a chance to stop by Ikea to pick up one of my birthday presents - this little gem to organize a few things in the bathroom (ahem... my ever growing makeup collection...).  It is now put together, I was just too tired to transfer a few of my stashes to it - so that will be my project over the weekend.

I hope you all have a wonderful weekend!  Be back Monday.

Geometric Color


I hope I never tire of these jeans - I mean, they are jeans, but a nice print to keep it from being boring, which means they warrant tons of weird comments from the guys I work with.  Seriously, I am always laughing at what they come up with so it's never a dull moment.

Oh, and another little shout out for Ebates - it's the best way to shop online because you get rewarded for purchases you plan on completing any way.  Since I started using the program in 2012 - my total cash back has been about $1,700 - so not a bad way to cushion that shopping fund.  ;)

Wouldn't you know - more neutrals, but it's seriously just that time of year where the weather is so blah and I am having a hard time pulling out the bright colors.  I will make more of a conscious effort though... for the sake of this wee lil' blog.

Thank you for stopping by!

Beauty Faves

I'm kind of a beauty product junkie, I will be the first to admit that.  Between my sister, Cindy, and I, we could probably tell you a good deal about a lot you can find at Sephora, Ulta, Nordstrom's... you get get picture.  And we are great about swapping products to try if it doesn't work out so hot for ourselves.  Now if she would just move closer we could continue that process much easier.  ;)

Here are a few of some of my new favorite products - the first three thanks to deluxe samples from Sephora, and the Bobbi Brown Art Stick was just one I wanted to try and I absolutely love it!

During the winter, even my very oily skin gets dry patches and this exfoliating treatment has been heaven in a tube for me.  It give a very light tingle that feels invigorating and the scent is light as well.  I only need to use a couple times a month so  little bit really does go a long way.

I don't really care to admit that I'm noticing those pesky little fine lines around my eyes, so we will just leave it at that.  ;)  This serum, though... I apply a bit at night before my eye cream and I've seen it going to work.  Sells out fast so get no the wait list!

Now, since I have oily skin, I have always been reluctant to use face oils... just seems counter intuitive - but I finally gave it a go and I am in love with this product.  Jam packed with restorative omegas and we all know how great those are for your skin.  The scent is not my favorite, but it's pretty mild and I don't notice after about five minutes so I feel like I can overlook that tiny detail.

And finally - a little more on this art stick... One stop shop for liner and color - and they dusty pink is a great rosy pink shade for a day to day color.  Not too crazy, but a good, noticeable pink.  Oh, and it IS a chubby little pencil, and each one comes with a sharpener.  I actually threw mine out in the box without realizing it was included.  Didn't know I needed to dig that out until I googled, "How to sharpen Bobbie Brown Art Stick..." tells you right there it is enclosed.  Oops.  haha.

Well, that is it for this round - thank you for stopping by and I would love to hear about any of your new favorite products in the comments.

Well, this outfit is pretty much one brand head to toe - unintentionally.  Sometimes I just reach for a few favorite staples and heaven only knows how much I love the J Crew brand, so this is bound to happen from time to time.

Happy Friday Everyone - I'm headed to SLC Sunday for some Global Sales Meetings but I have a few posts lined up for that time - hope you have a fabulous weekend!
