Poll 2 Results

In the last poll I asked how long it takes you to get ready in the morning.  Half said that it took between 26-45 minutes to get ready.  To those of you that can get ready in less than 25 minutes, I commend you!  What are your secrets?  It takes me about 30-35 minutes to get ready, on a good day. In order to cut down the time on my morning routine I usually shower at night and air dry my hair while I sleep.  I have a pretty standard makeup routine that takes about 15 minutes.  I'll then spend about 5 minutes taming my hair, since I'm trying to avoid heat.  Next I'll spend about 10-15 minutes trying to figure out what to wear - definitely the hardest part of my morning routine.  Check the right column for the next poll now!

NYFW Favorites

Honestly, I wasn't too impressed with many of the shows this Spring 2015 NYFW.  But the looks from J. Mendel and Cushine Et Ochs were some of my favorite this season.

J. Mendel
At J. Mendel we saw beautifully draped dresses, faux fur accents, vibrant colors and some fun prints. Usually I'm not a fan of black and yellow combined but J Mendel nailed the color combo.  The looks were fresh and bright and have me dreaming of spring already!  Check out two of my favorite looks below and see the whole collection here.

Takeaway Trend:  Keep your eyes out for faux fur accessories and detailing.  It might be the next big trend!

Cushnie Et Ochs
Saving the best for last...the looks at Cushnie Et Ochs show were just insane.  It's so hard to pick a favorite piece.  Something about the shade of yellow that was used, which I would term a marigold yellow, is just so rich and delicious.  See the whole show here.  

Both shows used similar color schemes which included yellow, (J.Mendel - lime yellow, Cushnie Et Ochs - marigold yellow), teal, pink (J. Mendel-hot pink, Cushnie Et Ochs - baby pink), and black and white.

NYFW: Street Style

I can't get over this look!  How amazing does Sarah Jessica Parker look en route to the Calvin Klein show?  Everything about this look is perfection from the lightly tousled waves to the black pumps. Of course the pièce de résistance is the blue coat...let the picture below speak for itself.

Charlotte Tillbury Arrives in the US

I've long been a fan of Charlotte Tilbury.  Tilbury's work has appeared on a number of covers including Vogue and Harper's Bazaar and in countless runway shows.  I've seen her makeup countless times on youtube and on beauty blogs.  I had always been curious to try out her products.  Something about the art-deco inspired packaging and the wearable colors instantly drew me in.  But I wasn't able to purchase anything from the line because it was only being sold in Europe.  But now, Charlotte Tilbury has launched her famous line in the US!

I'm beyond excited to get my hands on some of her products.  The problem is, I just can't decide which ones!  I want to try them all.  Below are some of the products that I have my eyes on.

Multi Miracle Glow ($60)
A cleanser, mask & balm for soft skin

A watermelon pink lip gloss
An enhancing kit for brown eyes

As a makeup fanatic, I've had a great time browsing her website.  They've made it super easy to shop online.  The website provides incredible photos of swatches.  You can see most of the colors swatched on different skin tones as swell.  It really takes the guess work out of shopping for makeup online.  Another feature that I like is that you can shop by look.  Below are two of my favorite looks, Uptown Girl and The Ingenue (both super stunning and on the natural side).

Uptown Girl
The Ingenue
Charlotte Tilbury cosmetics can be purchased from the Charlotte Tilbury website and Nordstrom.
