- I am obsessed with doing My BEAUTY 101 everday. This consists of having a daily skin regimin every morning and night. I love my Mia 2 Clarisonic, Kheils Gentle Foaming Cleanser, Clinique Dramatically Different Gel, and Neutrogena Hydrating Eye Cream. To give my skin the extra TLC it needs I also include a 2-3 times a week face mask. My best friend, Winnie Tsui (click here), a beauty blogger from Hong Kong swears by this refrigerated LUSH Cupcake Mask. It’s lovely. TIP: Make your own strict BEAUTY 101 and wear hydrating eye cream every night. You’ll thank me later, I promise.
My favorite is the accent nail, especially when it’s gold or silver. I continued the gold accents with my accessories by adding a two band gold ring. TIP: Keep your look fresh and daring. It’s nice to look down at your fingers and see something new and out of the ordinary. An accent nail color is fabulous. Also, for quick drying top coats, check out Essie’s “Good To Go” Topcoat (click here).
I love decorated lattes or espresso, americanos or just plain coffee for that matter. Caffeine fuels my advertising company. I love to treat myself and walk over to Barista and get one of their delicious lattes. TIP: I really don’t have too big of a tip for ordering coffee. However, calories run wild once your start adding syrups, whole milk, sugar packets and whipped cream into your daily coffee. I had a chat with my boss who got married this summer and she said she completely cut sugar and creamery out of her morning coffee. She said she felt and saw a difference. Ladies and gents, this could be your answer to cut down on those extra calories and work towards your New Year’s resolutions.
My classic: studs + prints. I love this look. I actually wore these Hurley Jeans and Jeffrey Campbell studded loafers yesterday (despite the freezing temperature). Don’t be afraid to mix crazy prints and shoes. I can’t begin to tell you how many compliments I get on these jeans. TIP: Like I have said before, don’t be afraid to be daring. If it’s ridiculous, it’s ridiculous. But the main goal and objective you want to achieve is, is that you feel awesome and excited about your look. To make this happen, take a look in the mirror. Start swapping different flats, pumps or heels with your pants. Wear a plain sweater or top instead of adding a shirt with too much different colors and patterns. Think of it as you are doing the “reverse your clothes.”
Love these studded boots from Zara. TIP: Always bring out the best accessories for your birthday: champagne + shoes.
