Amy’s End Of Summer Favorites

Fall is right around the corner which means summer is finally coming to a close. Students are heading off to school and leaves will soon begin to fall. Before I start my back to school shopping, I decided to figure out which products I love and which I am going to stop using in the upcoming months. Summer is the best time to try out a beauty product to test their longevity, color, and overall performance. It is also a great time to experiment with new skin care and of course, wear your favorite summer clothes. These products are the standouts of my summer and the things that kept me looking fresh, tanned, and entertained from June until September.

1. Netflix

This summer I spent my days working on school, working on blog posts or working out. Then my favorite part of the day would roll around where I tuck myself into bed and I push play on my favorite show. At the beginning of summer I binge watched every episode of Desperate Housewives in a whopping 27 days. If you have any recommendations for shows that are a must see I would love to hear them; I’m still trying to fill my DH void.

2. Miss Manga Mascara

I have never been a huge fan applying mascara over any other product. When I do wear mascara, I have been reaching for this one by L’Oreal. It gives my lashes nice long looking curl without clumps. After one coat of this mascara I like to apply a coat of another L’Oreal mascara to add extra length. For the summer I particular enjoy this mascara because it is nearly impossible to get off. There is no flaking or smudging throughout the day and it is a great summertime mascara for those who are sweating or outside a lot.

Amy’s Picks From Zara’s September 2014 Lookbook

via Zara September 2014 Lookbook

Early this month, Zara released its September 2014 lookbook that included not only stunning stills but with it came just about every trend you need to know for fall, including all over prints, retro chic, and many more.

Shop: 1. Look 1 | 2. Look 2 | 3. Look 3

I love these three looks in particular for three reasons; their color, print and practicality. Both the coat and the long sleeve turtle neck are blush pink pastels, which are extremely on trend for fall. Paired with a dark coat or skirt like Zara has done makes the color appropriate and work for fall. Zara has also stuck to trends presented at fashion week by incorporating florals into their fall line. Darker florals are a go for fall and I am completely smitten for both this retro style dress and skirt.

Annie’s New Mom Style Must-Haves

I’ve only been a mom for around a month and a half, but I’ve quickly figured out the things I need to look and feel comfortable while cheating sleep and maintaining some semblance of style at the same time. Here are some of my favorite picks that help me survive being a new mom.

1. Marital Bling

I’m finding it near impossible to wear jewelry with a baby. I thought I’d be safe with earrings for a while, but my baby boy is already quite the skilled grabber proving I need to invest in some cute studs. Bracelets are not my favorite when I’m cradling my baby in my arms, and necklaces are also out of the question due to aforementioned grabbing. Luckily my engagement ring, which my husband designed based on this beauty, packs a punch of style in a small package and is enough “bling” to make me feel somewhat accessorized and fancy.

2, 3, 5, 6, 8. Quick Face Fixes

Lots of stay at home moms don’t wear any makeup which is a great timesaver. Personally, due to lack of sleep and a dash of rosacea, when I look in the mirror sans makeup what I see most closely resembles the late, great Aileen Wuornos and I kind of can’t stand it. I’m the type of person who truly believes that if you look good, you feel good, therefore I feel kind of alright-ish with these quick face fixes. I slap on a little BB cream, under eye concealer, bronzer, tinted lip balm and mascara and I’m good to go. Even if my only outing for the day is a walk around the block or a visit to the pediatrician, I prefer not looking like a depraved serial killer while doing so.

1 Look, 3 Ways: Who Wore It Best?

Separates and two pieces having a huge moment in the spotlight so it is no wonder that this number, first worn by Kim Kardashian, has gotten a lot of love from two other popular celebrities. A similar crop top and pencil skirt has been worn this past summer by Shay Mitchell and Ariana Grande and they looked equally as stunning. Check out these three looks below and let us know which one you like best!

Kim Kardashian West was the first celebrity to sport an all-white separate outfit from Ermanno Scervino nearly a year ago at her birthday bash. I love her hair and makeup, but I am not crazy about her choice of shoes. They are gorgeous and the t-strap is very cute, but the lace of the outfit mixed with the chaining on the shoes gives mixed vibes. Her clutch, while a little busy, is stunning and added a subtle pop of color.

Shay donned this ensemble from the Misha Collection just last month at the Teen Choice Awards, earning her a spot on my personal best dressed list of the night. Aside from the outfit Shay’s hair was a huge point of attention—it was luscious, full and almost completely perfect with a subtle charm embodied in the braid. I loved the bold bordeaux lipstick shade she chose; it was beyond fitting for the transition to fall and was the perfect pop for her outfit. I appreciate that she kept the look within the same color palette, ensuring no one thing had to compete for attention.
