Beauty & Breakfast At Nordstrom

I had the pleasure of being a guest blogger at Nordstrom's fall beauty event again this year. It was a morning of breakfast and beauty with beauty stylist, Terri Craft, who shared beauty trends for the upcoming season. I was able to get my hands on some of these goodies a week prior to the event so I could experiment with them. The fall event featured YSL Radiance Boosting Primer, MAC Studio Water Weight Foundation and brush, La Mer Carryon Value Set and the Renewal Oil, Dior Backstage Pro products, and all of my favorites below. You must visit your local Nordstrom to get your hands on these products!

Here are some of my favorites from the fall beauty show:

1. Laura Mercier Tinted Moisturizer and Caviar Stick
I've never been a fan of tinted moisturizers because I love full coverage, but this one provides lightweight coverage and is very hydrating. I was surprised at how flawlessly if fit into my makeup routine. Another favorite from Laura Mercier, are the Caviar Sticks, which are creamy, easy glide eyeshadow sticks.

2. Jo Malone London Mimosa and Cardamom Cologne
This was my first Jo Malone fragrance and on top of that it was a warm clean smell, which is right up my alley. I'm obsessed with this scent and it's been my daily scent. 

3. Murad Intensive-C Radiance Peel and Invisablur Protective Shield
Of course you can't talk about beauty without skincare. Better skin has become a mission for me and with it being quite pricey, I was so excited to try out some of the highly talked about Murad products. I've been using the Murad Intensive-C Radiance Peel twice a week. It smells so yummy like freshly squeezed oranges! I substitued my primer for the Invisablur Protective Shield. My makeup applies much more smoother and lasts longer!

It's All About The Duster

Kim Kardashian is one of my fashion inspirations. I absolutely love neutral color palette which she mixes into her monochromatic looks. She keeps her wardrobe sexy, fashion forward, and simplistic. Kim thinks her arms her fat, so she always wears an overcoat! In my recent outfit of the day, I wore a head to toe black ensemble to recreate one of Kim's street style looks. I purchased the "Dark Night" duster from Rebdolls. I'm so in love with these lightweight jackets. A simple tank, midi bodycon skirt, and oversized sunglasses completed my same fit done thick.

Here's a color palette that will be popular for fall. You'll be seeing these in my nail polish choices and in future outfit posts. Which color is your fav?

Last Call For White

I ended my Labor Day weekend with a bang in a sexy all white outfit - a lace up bodysuit and a scuba skater skirt. I love how the bodysuit from Pinkclubwear oozes just enough sexiness with the peekaboo cleavage accentuated by the lacing detail. I was dying to get my hands on a scuba skater skirt and was stoked that Chic & Curvy had them available. Skater skirts are perfect for the fatshionista - hides the tummy and creates the illusion of  a waist because of the volume of the skirt. With fringe being one of my favorite trends, my heels added a flirty texture to my look.
