Spring Wishlist!!

Lancome Rouge In Love Lipstick- Okay, so you know those full ads that play before a YT video starts? the ones that make you wait 5 seconds before being able to click skip? (I swear that always seems like the longest 5 seconds EVER!) Anyway so this ad popped up before a video recently and I loved it. It has really up beat music by Brigitte and a fun feel. Before seeing this ad I never even took a second look at Lancome. I've always associated it with cosmetics for more mature women and grandmas. It seems as though Lancome is making an effort to appeal to a much younger audience. Especially with Emma Watson as the new spokesperson and face of rouge in love, how can it not be appealing!! The packaging is beautiful and thoughtfully designed. Can't wait to go have a look at them this weekend. Lancome, you have my attention!

Nars Blush in Amour- This past weekend I hit pan on deep throat, which was my first Nars blush. It isn't anything to celebrate about since I'm actually a bit bummed about it. I hate hitting pan on products I love! But I figure the only way to feel better about it, is to go buy a new blush. So I have my eyes set on Amour. It seems to be a sweet combination of peach and pink. Totes my kinda color!

Lancome Teint Idole Ultra 24h- I've recently dabbled into higher end foundations and with the couple that I've tried I have not been pleased. So for the time being I've switched back to my trusty ol' Revlon color stay. But now I'm kinda in the mood to try out another. I've recently heard about this foundation and I'm pretty intrigued by it. It sounds like it has the few things I'm looking for, medium coverage, transfer free and a neutral shade range. If and when I get this I hope it won't be another disappointment, I have high hopes!

Estee Lauder Advanced Night Repair- One reason I want this. Tanya Burr (Pixie2woo) who has beautiful skin, gave a rave mini review on this product in one of her recent favorites video, and now I feel like I must have it in my life. Yeah that's it, reason enough! right!

House of Harlow Stacked Rings- So besides the fact that I love Nicole Richie, I am also obsessed with her House of Harlow 1960 line. There is not one thing I wouldn't want. I love the 60's Bohemian and tribal vibe. Her designs totally reflect her own personal style which I also happen to LOVE. I received one of the sunburst necklaces for Christmas 2 years ago and I wear it all the time. So since I need some new rings I think these would be soo perfect.

Converse Chuck Taylor All Star Sneakers- I love wearing converse in spring and summer with a pair of distressed shorts and a graphic t-shirt. Casual & Comfortable. These shoes are just classic and the white would look so good against tan skin. I have to have these!

Neon Love

NEON & PINK?? what has gotten into me?!
 I seem to be completely embracing the neon trend this season. Well not completely, but I must say it has been quite refreshing to pair these accessories with my typically very simple outfits. I am now a full believer that a small dose of neon can seriously brighten your day. For weeks now I've had this little "arm party" going on and I am loving it! I've also been painting my nails hot pink. Yeahhhh...not the color you would usually see on my nails, but then again it just feels so right at the moment.

Love me some Tom Ford!

This Sunday I spent the evening at Barnes and Noble. I sat in the magazine section and happened to spot a plush broken-in sofa seat. SCORE! For a couple of hours I sat there with my coffee and flipped through several magazines. I repeatedly kept coming across articles about Tom Ford. I especially enjoyed the article in Harper's Bazaar Australia. This handsome man is a visionary and can do no wrong in my eyes. After reading the articles and having watched his documentary a few weeks back I have become quite captivated by him. He is just as charming in print as he comes across in the documentary. I feel like everything he says is GOLD. Fun fact! I recently read he is a native Texan and was born in the same city as I was. He was also raised in one of my all time favorite place to visit, Santa Fe, New Mexico. Gah even more reasons to love him! hell yeahhhhh I have something in common with Tom Ford! haha, kidding. but not really ;) Anyway once I got home I did what I do best, went straight to my laptop and read and watched reviews on Tom Ford make up. Just for kicks I even had a bit of fun adding the items to my cart. You don't even want to know the total! Time to start counting pennies! I have compiled a short list of things I am DYING to have! 
1. Sable Smoke Lip Color
2. Cognac Sable Eye Color Quad (pictured above)
3. Flush Cheek Color
Until the day comes that I temporarily lose my mind and save enough to swipe the plastic for these pricey pieces of luxury, I'll just have to marvel at the beautifully rich, striking ads. By the way I love how he allows for the products to take center stage and enlarges them to cover the whole page. Plus the fact that he appears in his own ads just seals the deal!
