You guys… I have turned into a beauty junkie. It all started when I decided I needed to switch up my beauty routine and try some new products. Well if you’ve ever been in that spot you’ve probably gone to the internet and searched “best beauty products.” Well let me tell you, there are a lot of beauty products that are deemed “the best.” And I can’t stop trying new ones.

Well now it’s my turn to introduce you to a new beauty brand by a boy band…

You might have heard of them before… One Direction?! The beauty bin came with nail polish (glitter!!), lip gloss, lipstick, eye shadow, oil blotting sheets, mascara, and a chunky eyeliner. Pretty much everything that you need for your beauty routine to take you from day to night! So now you can love on One-Direction all sorts of ways… the best way would probably be jamming out while wearing their  bold shades, unique formula and infused with limited edition collectable packaging. Makeup from One Direction is fun, bold, often irreverent, with a touch of cheeky mischievousness.

This limited-edition cosmetics collection is launching mid-August 2014 at Macy’s and select other major retailers worldwide. Be on the lookout, you don’t want to miss out on this craze! And in the meantime you can check it out here: http://www.facebook.com/MakeupbyOneDirection

Spring Beauty Wish List

Spring Beauty Wish List

I’m almost afraid to say it in fear of jinxing myself, but after the last few days being Springtime temps I am about to do my annual Spring cleaning! I love this time of the year, and especially after the cold winter, putting away chunky sweaters and pulling out sleeveless tops will feel even better!

But besides the swaping out of clothes one of my most favorite things to do  in the Spring is buy all new makeup! Light pinks, neutrals and bold lashes are on my wish list this season and Harrods has me covered! They have showcased three brands that we all have used and love. Lancôme has a ton of hydrating lotions and BB creams with SPF to block the long forgotten sun. And to help transition into summer, I am definitely going to pick up the Flash Bronzer Transfer-Resistant Body Self Tanning Lotion.

Sensai by Kanebo has everything from cosmetics, hair care, bath & body, to skincare. They have every well recommended face lotion, eye cream, concealer that your heart desires. This concealer would be great to throw in your bag for on to go coverage!

And finally… Tom Ford. Yes he is the man and once again Harrod’s has the full realm of Tom Ford beauty products this spring. Beautiful shades of pink for lips, eyes, cheeks and nails. I can’t wait to get my hands on Tom Ford’s Lip Colour Sheer in summer fling. How perfect is that color for spring!

I definitely encourage you to take a look at the campaigns that Harrods is featuring.  What products are you going to refresh in your beauty regime?

I lied. I told you all I would have outfit posts ready to go by Wednesday and although I have a couple of outfit posts they’re not ready to be posted. I did however (thank you sister) take a couple shoots in Miami which I can’t wait to share! Seriously I didn’t know if I was going to come back to the cold D.C. weather. It was the most perfect getaway!

Miami girls have influenced me… Their makeup looked great in the heat, they have that  sun kissed skin all year round, and their bathing suit game is on point. I definitely need to step it up in the bathing suit department but the thing I took most from this trip is to have fun with colors. I love buying new lip glosses and lip sticks but I usually stick to the same colors. Go bold with a blue eyeliner or purple shadow. I have the neutrals and gold down but adding some bright fun colors could be fun!

Christmas is right around the corner… you might have all the big items checked off, but don’t forget about the fun little items to stuff the stockings with! All of these items are under $50 and sure to be a hit with any girl on your list! Or heck… pick and choose what you like and treat yourself!

Wednesday Wishlist {Holiday Glam}

Holiday Glam

With the holiday season quickly approaching [as in next week] I can’t help but get excited for all things sparkly! Dresses, skirts, and shoes are obviously a big part of your look but I love the little details of each outfit. If any season to pull off something glam this is it! Try a bold lip or a metallic eyelid to spice things up in your beauty routine. If you usually wear your hair down, pin it up with these gorg bobby pins. And OPI Glitzerland… believe me this nail polish will instantly become a favorite. The specs of sparkle but not overly gold shade is perfect for any skin tone!

What are some of your favorite touches to glam up for the holiday season?!

Essie Giveaway

Giveaway is now closed- Congratulations Brooke!

So Lucky Mag’s Community has been doing their monthly “themes” (which I think is a great idea) and this month they want to see “your beauty moves for spring.” Which got me thinking… what do I do when I need a change. I love lip glosses and have been daring myself to go colorful, but really my beauty move is fresh painted nails. I always have my nails painted and the color always depends on how I’m feeling that day! SO for my first ever giveaway I decided to help out a CC&C follower show Lucky their #BrightBeauty this spring with a new shade of Essie nail polish! Good luck!

(The winner will be chosen at random)

HOW TO ENTER:

  1. Follow CC&C on Bloglovin

Beauty Buys

I love that Spring has really sprung now in DC and it has me wanting to do a whole lot of revamping! (Last weekend I chopped off 6 inches of hair!)

I have big plans for this weekend since it’s my first weekend I’ll actually be home in awhile. Lots of cleaning, lots of organizing and lets be honest… probably lots of shopping too!!

Here’s a few beauty things that I’ve purchased recently…

Beauty Buys

Blues

It’s funny how a couple years ago I always had pinks, reds, or purples (normal nail colors) on my fingers and now when I paint them pink it’s abnormal! I’m loving all the fun colors you can now get away with, especially blues for this spring season.
I used to be an OPI-only kind of girl but I have branched out to Essie as well. They have great colors and the polish stays on just as well as OPI, and the names are just as cute!
