Fall Wish List
With the changing season I am tempted to give into my hearts desire and revamp my wardrobe with pieces I absolutely adore. These are a few of the items that I am totally feeling for the transition into fall; it is obvious to me red, gold, grey, and black are going to play a big part in my fall wardrobe (goodbye electric blue!).
Rock The Trend – Draped Top
I just love these tops that are draped in the back, it is a great change up from the front drape and very elegant. I put together a date night look paired with statement earrings and a skin tone nail that are in trend for the fall season. I kept the look simple to draw focus to the back draping.
A top like this could be very versatile; you could wear the draping towards the front or back, whichever suites your mood. For added drama, wear a body chain to bring even more focus to the draping. This color top could be worn during the day with denim jeans or for a change, pair with burgundy or grey jeans. For work, pair the top with a knee length pencil skirt and modest heels.
Would you rock this trend? Let me know, comment below.
Confessions of a Red Nail Addict – Favorite Nail Polish Brands
I am not someone who follows the latest nail trend; I am, without a doubt, a red nail addict! I am constantly drawn to the container of red nail polish and not due to a lack of having other colors to select from. Red nails look classy, sophisticated, effortless, and never overdone (hello fruit covered nails, I am referring to you!). That being said, I do enjoy different hues of red and dabble with different brands. I decided to share with you my top red nail polishes either to help out a fellow red nail lover, or advise you red nail virgins on a good product to start with.

Beauty Favorites – Top Beauty Picks
I thought today I would change it up and talk about my favorite beauty products. These are the products I use daily and highly recommend if you are in the market for a new stand out beauty product.
For my face I have found nothing does the job better than Laura Mercier products. The secret camouflage palette is amazing. This product does a wonderful job of covering up any impurities or discoloration and hiding dark circles. I even use this product as a base before applying eye shadow. I use the primer and tinted moisturizer set for a lightweight foundation routine.
I have tried so many eyeliners in my time, but I find that Bobbi Brown Long-Wear Gel is a step above most brands. I love the line you get with using a gel and it is easy to work with if you want to smudge it out for a smokey eye effect or keep the line crisp.
In terms of eye shadow, I tend to keep my look neutral. I am able to achieve the perfect subtle eye look with the colors in the Bobbi Brown Surf and Sand Palette. I have oiler skin around my eyes that makes if difficult to find make-up that will stay in place, with this palette I don’t have to worry about my hard work disappearing after only a few hours.
I like to keep my lips looking natural with a touch of shine. I use MAC lipstick in Pink Nouveau and top it off with a Nars lip gloss.
