Powerbeats2 Review

Well hello everyone! I have several blog post on the horizon but I have been trying some new items out since Christmas and I wanted to give you my insight.  Most of the time I research things before I purchase but when my brother asked what I wanted for Christmas I said I wanted wireless earbuds for working out.

Mainly I wanted them because my klutzy self has swatted at my headphone cords and had my phone go flying a few times. It is so embarrassing and you hold your breath to make sure you didn’t mess your phone up!

So my brother ended up getting me Powerbeats2.  I have used them several times during different activities and have LOVED them.  I thought the around the ear clip would bother me but I don’t even notice it!  They stay powered up for a good amount of time.  It was SUPER easy to pair with my iPhone.  They also include ear-tips for a variety of ear shapes which is great because I HATE those big earbuds in my ear…. OUCH!

Overall, if you are someone who listens to a lot of music which being active these are TOTALLY for you.  They come in several colors too!

What are you favorite fitness accessories?

Favorite Things: Best of Beauty

A new week and a new post about my favorite things.  This week I am covering some of my favorite beauty products.

favthings

Tarte [Foundation]:  I LOVE this foundation.  It has GREAT coverage and stays on ALL day without feeling heavy.

Tarte [Airbrush Foundation]: This powder is great with or with out base.  Gives great coverage.  I use it with BB cream only OR when I have a night out I use their foundation I mentioned above.

Make Up Forever [Aqua Smoky Extravagant Waterproof Mascara]: This mascara gives my lashes lots of volume and umph! I also like the non-waterproof version and it works just as well! I got a sample and that is how I feel in love! The brush was a little bit of an adjustment but I really love it.

Mason Pearson Brush [Popular]: This brush was a huge splurge that I got for Christmas.  But almost a month later and I love it.  It really has helped my hair look healthier and fuller.  I also helps spread out your natural scalp oil!  I am WAY overdue for a haircut and actually have gotten compliments on how good my hair looks.  This brush is DEFINITELY worth the splurge.

EOS [Lip Balm]: This stuff is seriously addicting.  I can find it easily in my huge purse.  It stays on strong and really does relieve my chapped lips!

Watching For Trends Part Trois

What can I say… I definitely took advantage of the holiday break with family and didn’t blog! But I am back in action and have one last watch styling based on a find from Invaluable.com Women’s Watches!

My challenge to my readers is to create a look from a watch from Invaluable.com! I have LOVED this challenge and it has let me create some looks I wouldn’t normally put together because my pieces are different!

Watching for Trends Part deux

Since I had such a hard time styling just one watch I decided to make it into a series! Just a reminder I found the watches featured in this series on invaluable.com’s women’s watch page! I wanted another fall look with lots of fun color and texture and this is what I put together.

Again, I wanted to find the pieces to enhance the watch all at one store and I did that today with Target!

Watching for Trends

A watch is a timeless statement piece.  A great place to find a great statement for a great deal is from invaluable.com.  From their About Us tab on their website, “Invaluable (formerly Artfact) is the world’s largest online auction marketplace of fine and decorative arts, antiques, collectibles, and estate sales.”

The watch below from invaluable.com’s women’s watch page caught my eye and I knew I needed to style it…. but I will say I had a hard time just choosing one! I wanted a bright Fall look with lots of patten and textures.  I also wanted to stick with one major store if possible and I almost did it!  However, to find the perfect scarf to compliment the outfit I ventured to the always go-to Target! Shout out to Ann Taylor for having so many great Fall/Winter looks to choose from!

This outfit works both for work and a night out for drinks! I think ALL of these pieces could also really work into an already existing wardrobe to help keep things fresh and fun… especially the watch.

Denim Days: Day 4

 

One of my good friends suggested this series so I figured to wrap it up I would go all out.  Wearing a Canadian tuxedo is WAY out of my comfort zone.  However, I used different blue jean shades to help me feel comfortable wearing it.  I actually really liked how it turned out!  For interest I added these floral heels and leopard belt.picstitch

Happy Friday Ya’ll! The more I see pattern mixing the more I love it! I have been staying in a safe zone by mixing black and white stripe with leopard.  But today I wanted to show off a different combo.  Polka dots and plaid!  Let me know what you think!
