Recent Beauty Buys

Smashbox "Full Exposure" eyeshadow palette
 I don't know about you, but I get very bored with my makeup.   Every few months, I always feel the need to completely overhaul my makeup drawer.  I recently picked these products up and love all of them (especially this Smashbox eyeshadow palette).  Whether you're looking for matte or shimmer, this gorgeous, neutral palette has it all!

L'Oreal "Miracle Blur" Skin Smoother
 Let's be real.  I'm in my 30's and I'm always on the lookout for products that reduce the appearance of wrinkles.  I've read great things about L'Oreal Miracle Blur so I decided to give it a try.  For a drug store product, it's pretty damn impressive.  I put it on right after I moisturize.

Bobbi Brown High Shimmer Lip Gloss in "Bellini"
 I've tried A LOT of lip glosses.  In fact, you can probably say that I'm somewhat of a lip gloss junkie.  This one by Bobbi Brown is my new favorite.  It's super shiny, not sticky and LASTS.  Few things are more annoying than having  your lip gloss wear off 5 seconds after applying it. 

Bare Minerals "Complexion Rescue"
 I've been a Bare Minerals fan for years.  Their foundation is my absolute favorite, so naturally I had to try their newest product.  This tinted hydrating gel cream is everything and then some.  I've only been using it for a week and my skin already feels smoother and more hydrated.

Playing Favorites

Anine Bing leather jacket, Jimmy Choo heels, Joie pants, Sundry tee (similar and on sale)
I know I've said this before, but one of the best things of having a closet full of basics is being able to mix and match just about everything.  In my case, I mixed some of my favorite basics together for an edgy/casual look that was comfortable yet still felt put together.  Oh, and in case I haven't mentioned this yet...my leather jacket has been one of my best purchases to date!  I hope everyone had a great weekend!

Weekend Casual

Bella Dahl pants (similar), Aerin booties, 360 Sweater
It goes without saying that I love a good pair of joggers.  Whether they're paired with heels, sandals or ankle boots, they manage to look good with just about any type of shoe.  I wore this insanely comfortable ensemble while out running errands this past weekend.  After spending a few days cooped up with a sinus infection and a sick toddler (seriously NOT fun), getting out for some fresh air was a very welcomed change.  I hope everyone had a great weekend!
