With the change in the weather to more sunny days, I wanted to share with you my spring 2017 Freak Out List. I am ripping off JCREW in using the term "Freak Out" List because, hey I think they nailed it.
My Freak Out List is comprised of a few new items that I have added to my repertoire that I now cannot live without and I wanted to share them with you to add a little more beauty in your life!
Sam Edelman Talia Loafer. I was heading to a trade show in March and wanted a comfortable flat shoe that wasn't a ballet flat. If you follow fashion, you know that the whole menswear influence has been on trend. So I ordered several pairs of loafers from Nordstrom and this is where I landed.
I LOVE them so much! It took me one day to wear them in -without socks. They are a perfect for my classic/chic style. My son said they looked like Gucci loafers. I take that! If black is to "wintery" for you check out the pink floral ones! OMG so cute!!
SKINACTIVE Micellar Cleansing Water. This "water" effectively removes makeup, cleanses and refreshes skin. A multi-purpose cleanser that contains Micellar technology. It sucks away dirt, oil and makeup without harsh rubbing, leaving skin perfectly clean, hydrated and refreshed. I recently added this to my cleansing routine because I was curious if it really worked. I was using it at the beginning of my face cleansing process and then I had a facial and my aesthetician said to use it at the end of my face washing to ensure that I have captured all of the dirt and grime. You will be shocked at what is actually left on your face AFTER you wash it! More on this subject later.
LipSense. - My new lip obsession. My friend Jayne has been using this for years and I tried it a few years back but it didn't stick for me. For some reason the company recently exploded with interest and it seems to pop into my FB feed every day. I recently hosted a party for my friends with lip maven Ambra Bryant and it was so fun. These lips stains are waterproof, kiss proof, smudge proof and last 18 hours. It takes two weeks to get used to them so stick with it! With so many colors, what is a lady to do?
MITOMAX 2 - I just started taking these supplements in the morning along wth a B complex. OMG - I feel like I am the energize bunny and I am still not drinking coffee. Do not take this anytime other than the morning or you will not sleep. Mito2Max is a proprietary formula of plant extracts and metabolic cofactors. This product is structured to naturally support healthy cellular energy production, optimal mitochondrial function, aerobic capacity, and stamina. More on the mighty mitochondria later. Ladies, this powerhouse of your cell is critical to keep you healthy to ward off disease and illness.
JAZZERCISE I promised myself I would get into the best shape of my life this year as I just turned 50. Also part of my vision board for 2017 was to learn to dance. I couldn't find a good dance studio for adults so I joined Jazzercise. It is AWESOME. I show up, listen to hip tunes, someone tells me every move to make, I sweat like a pig and I am done in an hour. It doesn't get any easier than that! May is bring a friend for free month so check it out if you haven't! Plus it is just down right fun to dance you ass off!
If you persist nail lacquer from OPI - I needed a change up from my normal red nail color. My daughter Audrey is always making fun of me that I don't ever go outside the "red box" of nail colors. So I made the leap and have received many compliments on it and it is the perfect spring color!
The JCREW Pink Collection. Who doesn't like pink? It is such a flattering color and one that puts people at ease and makes you more attractive. Check out their new spring/summer collection. It will make you blush and FREAK OUT!
P.S. - Speaking of freaking out, you are going to want to book you seat at the GNO dinner on July 29th. This night will blow your mind. Tickets are selling so book your seat at the table today so you don't miss out!
