This summer our wrists are craving a little bit of mixed media. With colored thread, woven leather and added rhinestones the childhood friendship bracelets just got upgraded. For a little blast from the past, here are designers that have incorporated this trend into their summer pieces for the consumer like you and me.
c/o Pink Cosmetic Bag. Available to you with a $75 beauty purchase at Saks during beauty week.
I wear makeup pretty much all year round and almost always opt for a more natural face. So when I was asked to share Summer Beauty Week at Saks this year, I picked out products that can help me stay true to my favorite look.
When it comes to covering up my whole face, I've been a foundations girl for as long as I can remember. Though I've taken some time to dabble with BB creams but never quite found one that I liked. This Guerlain BB cream goes on really smooth with a brush or your fingers. At first it's lightly scented but that fades away as you run the cream into your face. I love how this product really brightens up my face and makes me feel more away. Plus it is loaded with SPF 30!
For lips, I found this new brand called Jack Black and it's pretty amazing. Not only do I love the bright blue packaging but the products are designed to have multi-use except for the one I got. Their lip balmcomes in 4 scents and I picked up the Black Tea + Blackberry one - perhaps this is dual function after all because both men and women can use the lip balm. But anyways the products are designed with the man in mind - like this All Over Wash that is a facial cleanser, hair conditioner and body wash. How convenient is that?
I'm all about a product that I can get multiple use out of and this brow kit is just that. The top 2 colors (light pink + light brown) are for highlighting my brows and the bottom 2 are for an eye shadow and to highlight the crease.
I love lipsticks because my lips are my favorite feature to accentuate on my face. For the summer, I picked out Chanel's most popular lip color #129 in their Rouge Allure collection. It's crisp coral pink color that will add a nice pop to a weekend, day or evening look.
So don't forget to stop by Saks in Boston at 786 Bolyston Street inside the Prudential Center for Summer Beauty Week till Saturday June 7th.
What are your summer beauty picks...or the products you can't live with out?
This post was sponsored by Saks Fifth Avenue, Boston. All the opinions are my own.
As I'm sitting here smelling this perfume, I'm also thinking about if I have ever had a bonbon. But did you know a bonbon is actually a type of candy with a chocolate or fondant coating/center. Which is the exact candy that comes in those holiday chocolate packages filled with chocolate covered caramel (my fav) and the mint ones. You know the box filled with candy that you take one bite and put it back if it's bad - yeah that's the one, those are bonbons. Who knew?
But anyways this new spring scent from Viktor&Rolf called BONBON is a twist on that classic candy with nodes of Blackcurrant, Jasmine, and Cedarwood + a few more. To me it's incredibly sweet and smells a bit like a soft burnt caramel though not with an overly charred scent. Therefore, I think it's a pretty heavy scent for the summer days so I'll most likely be wearing it for date nights.
