Favorite Bronzers

by christinamdick

Bronzers.001

1. bareMinerals READY Bronzer in Skinny Dip: I have this in High Dive and Skinny Dip. The lighter one (Skinny Dip,) is better for my skin tone to wear every day, and High Dive is better for special occasions.

2. bareMinerals All Over Face Color in Faux Tan: This is my favorite bronzer of all time. The pigmentation is awesome and it lasts the whole day. I stopped using it everyday because I don’t like the hassle of loose powders when I’m getting ready in the morning. Out of all of these, I’d say this one gives the best affect.

3. NARS Bronzer in Laguna: This one is a cult favorite. It’s similar to bareMinerals Skinny Dip shade and it’s pretty universal. Because this product is so popular, it comes a lot of fun sets like this one and this one.

4. Soleil Tan de Chanel: This is the only cream bronzer I’ve ever tried. You can apply it all over your face underneath your foundation or use it to contour.

5. Bobbi Brown Bronzing Powder in Golden Light: I just picked this up but I can already tell I love it. I’ve been reaching for this everyday and carrying it with me. The packaging is perfect.

6. Too Faced Chocolate Soleil: This smells like chocolate!! The color is comparable to Laguna and Skinny Dip but it’s scent is a bonus.

OK, so I know I just said that I didn’t need anymore leopard shoes, but I really do need these.

So Clutch

by christinamdick

I got this “What to wear for Fall” email from Ann Taylor today and spotted this awesome clutch. I don’t think it’s worth $150, but Ann Taylor has good sales so we’ll see. imageService (3)

Leopard Flats

You can never have too many. Here’s another pair I found. I restrained myself and didn’t buy them, though.

I Want To Rent This Dress

by christinamdick

After an ad came up in my Facebook newsfeed, I was browsing the Rent The Runway site. I don’t have any fancy events coming up, but when I do, I really want to wear this dress. Isn’t it gorgeous? Have you ever used Rent The Runway?

New Workout Jacket

by christinamdick

I saw this at Nordstrom and loved it, but thought it was a little pricey. Then, when I checked it out online and saw: “Whether zipped or not, you look 10lbs lighter when you are wearing this jacket.” in the product reviews, I knew I had to get it.

I really like Nordstrom’s Zella workout line. I have another sweatshirt (seen here) that I got last year for my birthday.

Favorite Summer Blouse

by christinamdick

I talked about J Crew’s Silk Cami back here, but the I’ve been wearing the pink one all summer so I had to mention it again.

I paired it with this jacket  from Ann Taylor, white jeans, and this beautiful necklace that was a birthday gift from my thoughtful friend, Kerry! 10533301_354618041352011_780783485_n

West Elm Parson’s Desk

by christinamdick

 The Parson’s Desk is a popular piece in the blogosphere and I’d been wanting one for a while. I picked up the glossy white during a West Elm sale and I use it as a makeup vanity.
