Valentine’s Day is a universal celebration of all things love. While some are indifferent towards the holiday, I embrace it wholeheartedly. Call me a romantic, but I like to celebrate my affection towards others with hearts, flowers, and the whole shebang. And what better way to show family and friends a little love than gifting them with a sweet beauty treat! Don't have a Valentine in mind? No problem. Treat yourself! From a chocolate softening mask, to a melted candy lipstick, and perfect flush blush – here is everything you need for a beautiful Valentine’s Day. XOXO

During award season celebrities always put their best face forward. They spend thousands of dollars on hair and makeup to get just the right look for the red carpet. So isn’t it great when their makeup artist divulge their beauty secrets and let us in on the exact products they used on their famous clients? From Lupita’s go-to brand, and Emma & Emmy’s drugstore finds – here are the key products celebs used at this year’s 2015 SAG Awards.

I don’t do much shopping at the beginning of the year, mostly because I don’t feel the need to. After the holiday season I give my piggy bank a much needed rest. However, there have been a few things that have made their way into my wishlist this month. From new kicks, a new fragrance, and statement necklace, to a carry-all satchel and a few items from Target’s new plus size line Ava and Viv. (More on that later on this week). Here is what I’m currently obsessing over:

Who doesn’t love the whimsical world of Kate Spade? The brand’s bright, colorful aesthetic is always feminine and fun, so you would expect nothing else from their new fragrance, Walk On Air, due out in March. (I’m in love the playful bottle and fanciful bow – so cute!)

If there’s one thing you should know about me is that I love me some stripes. And now it seems Arianna might also share in my affinity for horizontal lines because she picked this FabKids striped sleeveless dress herself. This dress is from the new January Collection and its beyond cute with its ruffles and red drawstring and back zipper. But I must admit, her recent introduction to Beetlejuice might have also played a role in her selection. (Yeah, I can thank my husband for that later). In any case, it provided good material for these silly pics. :)

I participated in an Influencer Activation on behalf of Influence Central for RapidLash. I received product samples to facilitate my review and a promotional item to thank me for my participation.
Ladies, let’s talk lashes. How happy are you with yours? Mine are short and fine – basically what every girl dreams about. Am I right?!! Sigh. If you’re a long time reader you know how much I envy girls with long beautiful lashes. The only way to make my eyelashes noticeable is to pile on the mascara or glue on those pesky false lashes. So when I asked to try RapidLash, an Eyelash Enhancing Serum, I jumped at the chance to make my lashes stand-out!

Happy Monday! I hope you are enjoying your three-day weekend to the fullest. Due to the freezing rain we didn’t go out much this weekend, other than to drop off Arianna for a playdate on Saturday and go out for dinner afterwards. A casual weekend called for a casual outfit, so I layered a Lane Bryant floral tank under a Democracy chambray shirt, paired it with some black skinnies and boots, and called it a day. My outfit also happen to pair perfectly with a Simply Vera Wang faux snakeskin tote the hubby recently gifted me so I was happy to put it to some use.
Have a great week and stay warm out there!
