Hello Monday

I'm always shocked at how fast the weekend goes. How was your weekend? I spent Saturday organizing my ever exploding beauty closets and Sunday at the most lovely New York Botanical Garden. I hadn't been in years, but I needed to see the Orchid Show. It's only open till April 19th, so definitely head over if you can! The orchids are stunning and the Botanical Garden is the perfect weekend activity.

Back to the normal Monday woes.. here are the products getting me through today.
A deliciously decant body cream that helps fight the signs of body aging. I didn't think I needed a youthful body balm yet, but it's never too early. The packaging on this beauty is my favorite - Rose Gold. Plus, the cream is a soft pink shade. Already displayed on my vanity ready for it's close-up.  

On Mondays, I need to look alive and this primer helps me do just that. I apply after my moisturizer and radiant, illuminated skin is revealed. It also helps my makeup wear for hours. Killing two birds with one stone? Check.


I normally switch to a lighter foundation when the weather heats up, but lately I'm loving bareMinerals' new Complexion Rescue. Just enough foundation to use daily and just enough coverage to satisfy me. A little setting powder to follow and you're out the door. 


Does anyone really have extra time to wash their hair? In the past, I've always needed to wash my hair every two days, but with the launch of Moroccanoil's Dry Shampoo for Dark Tones I can skip a day or two. Normally dry shampoos leave way too much white residue on my scalp, but this one is my dream come true. The formula contains ultra-fine rich starches that break down immediately once massaged into hair. The new dry shampoo is available for dark and light hair color tones. Also, they're enriched with Moroccanoil's signature ingredient - argan oil.


A beautiful blend of orange & yellow flowers appeared at my door a few weeks ago to celebrate the new fragrance by Vince Camuto, Bella. Nectarine blossoms, italian bergamot and jasmine water blend with white amber come together to create this lovely, floral fruity fragrance. I'm happy to smell like this all spring. 

When I saw this brushes, I immediately knew I needed all of them. The girls of Pixiwoo have done it again. Their successful brush collection, Real Techniques, just launched these new beauties. The brushes are ultra smooth and available in gold, rose gold and silver.



My new favorite nail brand is easily Smith & Cult. Created by beauty veteran Dineh Mohajer (founder of Hard Candy), the nail lacquers deliver flawless coverage and brilliant shine. These 5-Free formula polishes are just what you need to kickstart your Monday. Shade above is Ghost Edit, a semi-sheer pale nude pink.
