Get Stocked up for Christmas Winter Weather with DressVe

Thanksgiving is here this week! Can you believe it?! I don't know where the time goes! Snow and winter weather has been hitting a good part of the country lately, and I don't know about you, but I've pretty much skipped most of my fall clothing and went right to warm winter clothing so I don't freeze in these negative temps we've been having here in Wyoming!

If like me, you like to add a few new seasonal pieces to your wardrobe (and what Fashionista doesn't?) DressVe has got a great selection of warm winter, super stylish clothing at a price that can't be beat!

Right now shop the DressVe Christmas Sale and get 5$ off when you spend $50 or more, with code: dressve5,  or get $10 off when you spend $80 or more, with code: dressve10

Here are some of my favorites I want to update my wardrobe with this winter! Of course, lots of jackets and coats! I love this lapel front coat (and its only $17! What!) And all though most of us see leather jackets as a fall piece, they are a great layering piece for winter to keep you warm. Wear over a light sweater, then top your coat over for a really cool look. I love this because I tend to still be freezing in restaurants and movie theaters, so I can take off the coat and still have a nice warm vegan leather jacket to keep me warm! 

I'm particularly loving this vegan leather jacket in this fun mustard color. Totally unexpected for winter but when layering to stay warm, will bring a cool pop of unexpected color to your outfit! 

I haven't forgotten about you chic office ladies! Check out this cool menswear-inpsired style blazer for the office. I love the unique look of this tuxedo-style blazer, and if you tend to have the same lady-like blazers in your work wardrobe rotation, this blazer will really bring some cool edge to your office look and have people wondering what cool place you're shopping this season, that they need to know about! 

I love the look of this blazer for a casual night out with these really cool zippered leggings. Regular plain ol' colored leggings and print leggings are on their way out, but these leggings with this cool rocker-chic edge thanks to the fun zippers, will look more like some cool trendy denim but with the comfort of those fabulously warm leggings most of us just can't seem to let go!

Don't forget the fabulous sheath dress for the office holiday party! I love this basic black long sleeved dress from DressVe. The unexpected buttons give the plain old LBD something exciting, that will make you sure to stand out in the sea of black, which is often what dons the work holiday parties!

Last but not least, I have to have a warm chic cardigan each winter, that I end up wearing everywhere: Around the house, to run errands, out to dinner, wherever. This Cool zebra asymmetrical striped cardigan totally fits the bill for me! I'd wear it everywhere this winter! 






You can shop all of these cool looks right now from DressVe, and stay warm this winter without breaking the bank!

One Direction Limited Edition Makeup Palette Review + GIVEAWAY


Being a huge beauty lover, you can bet I was thrilled to learn about the New Markwins One Direction Limited Edition makeup palette tins.

Markwins has teamed up once again with the fabulous UK Hit Boy Band, One Direction, to give us girls super hot, super bold, edgy makeup, (Picked out by the band members themselves) along with a dreamy band member collectable tin.

I've tried out some Markwins One Direction makeup in the past and have absolutely loved it. The makeup is always so playful and inspiring, I feel super creative just using it to come up with new looks! It's no wonder the cosmetics are influenced by such inspiring musicians!

When I recently got the new limited edition palette, upon opening it to see the super bold, playful colors, I couldn't wait to give it a try! This palette is what you expect coming from the worlds biggest band who themselves are fun, bold, and a tad bit mischievous, and of course, so is the makeup! What's not to love?!


Each palette comes with the the same colors, so you can pick your favorite One Direction Band Member and get a fun collectible tin to hold your makeup in now, and once the makeup is all used up, use the collectible tin to stash come cash, store your jewelry, or whatever! The Possibilities are endless!  Personally, I'm keeping Harry right where I can see him, by placing this tin on my office desk with my post its and pens inside! After All, who doesn't want a super hot british musician, right where you can see him?!

Now, on to the makeup! Each palette comes with the same six beautiful shades of eye shadow. A beautiful silver (Nobody compares), Dark Rich Brown (I Would), champagne (Tell Me a Lie), a pretty navy blue (Summer Love), a gorgeous shade of mint green (Same Mistakes), and a deep black (Everything About You).



Eyeshadow Swatches:

Besides some gorgeous, super highly-pigmented shades of eyeshadow, like you can see from the swatches here, you also get a true matte black eyeliner (Eye Want), Silver sparkle lip gloss top coat (Over Again), and two shades of gorgeous nail polish in hot pink (Stole My Heart) and glitter flake polish (Alive).

You also get four beautiful shades of lip gloss in hot pink (Loved You First), coral (Irresistable), pale pink (One Thing), and a pretty nude beige (Heart Attack), as seen in the swatches below.

Lipgloss swatches:

What I love about this makeup (besides the super mischievous and flirty names taken from the band) are the super high pigment you get in each of these gorgeous shades of eye and lip colors, as well as the polish.

You will find quickly you only need a little bit of color and it really goes a long way! I love this, because that means this palette is going to last a long time! What I also really love is that often you buy a palette of makeup only to use about half the colors or less, because a lot of the colors really don't fit your style or just don't look that great. I have loved and used every one of these gorgeous eye and lip colors and I will be using them all until they are gone! This palette really fits my style and the colors are so absolutely rich and exquisite, I'm sure you will find you can't live without any of them too! The colors are so fun to play with and I found each shade incredibly inspiring to create new looks.

Here are some of the looks I created below using this beautiful makeup palette from Markwins.

Hot Pink (Loved You First) lip gloss:

My Ice Queen look: using the Champagne (Tell Me a Lie) under my eyebrows and the Silver eyeshadow (Nobody Compares) on my eyelids, the black matte, winged eyeliner, yellow mascara, and pale pink lip gloss (One Thing).

For another look, I decided to go with the gorgeous green mint (Same Mistakes) eyeshadow on the eyelids, the champagne again (Tell Me a Lie) under my eyebrows, and the black matte eyeliner pencil. I then finished the look with the nude-beige lip gloss (Heart Attack). 

Here's the nude-beige lip gloss (Heart Attack) topped wit the silver sparkle lip gloss top coat:

and the Pale Pink lip gloss (One Thing).

These are just some of the looks I've created using this gorgeous One Direction Limited Edition makeup palette, but the possibilities are endless. Use the black, navy, and or/brown eyeshadows for a dramatic smoky eye, paired with the pale pink gloss. You can also go with the hot pink lip gloss, and keep the eyes neutral with the champagne and brown eyeshadows.

I've had so much fun playing with this makeup palette, and I've actually gotten excited each morning thinking about the new, playful, or bold look I would create for the day! I can't wait to continue using this beautiful makeup to create more inspiring looks!

Check out just how hands-on One Direction was in coming up with these beautiful shades of eyeshadows and lip glosses to represent their Limited Edition Makeup Tins. Here you can see Liam and Niall going through the makeup:

Amazing Beauty Products That Will Bring Back Your Youth: Cellescence + A GIVEAWAY!

I believe that eye cream and face cream are two of the most important parts of my beauty routine, so you can bet I'm picky when it comes to the eye and skin cream products I use on my face.

ENTER TO WIN $180 in Skincare at the Bottom of this Post! 

I'm constantly on the lookout for the latest in anti-aging beauty products that are going to bring me the maximum results. I don't want to settle for mediocre if I know there is something much more exceptional out there! After all, we live in a youth-obsessed culture, and for a women in her 30's, of course I'm concerned with minimizing some nasty sun spots and fine lines, as well as doing my best to bring back a more youthful, supple, softer-looking appearance.

When I came across the CellEsssence brand, I couldn't wait to give them a try. I've been hearing lots of good things about this super-innovative beauty line, and how effective it can be for fighting the signs of aging, that unfortunately show up on your face as you start to get older.

The CellEssence line is based on reinvigorating the skin barrier to help preserve the activity of the epidermal stem cells. If you know anything about beauty and skincare or really anything for that matter, you know that you can try to minimize the lines and sun spots all you want, but you really need to get to the source of the problem in order to bring back more truly youthful skin.

CellEssence understands this and puts their research into finding the best possible ways to give the skin some oomp and a push to start at repairing its own skin damage, in turn giving you a more youthful appearance, as well as a reduction in those fine lines and sun spots.

The Key ingredient behind the CellEssence brand is A-Lipoic acid, which is referred to as the "perfect" antioxidant, because it has been shown to be directly linked to preventing the aging and inflammation of the skin. It has also been shown to improve energy production of skin cells, as well as help the skin regenerate Vitamins C and E. It also helps the skin protect itself from free-radicals and sun exposure. Using this ingredient over time will minimize the fine lines and wrinkles, make large pores less noticeable, ad will encourage healthy cellular function at the source, and give your skin a more radiant glow!

You will also find other amazing ingredients in CellEssence that have been shown to repair damage to the skin cells, regenerate the skin, increase cell turnover, remove dead cells, thicken the epidermis, reduce skin-redness, improve skin elasticity, hydrate the skin, and reduce the appearance of unsightly signs of aging, such as the wrinkles and sun spots.

As you can see, CellEssence gets to the root of the problem and is going to provide you with ingredients that will not only make your skin look better, but will also improve it at the source, bringing back a much more youthful glow and appearance.

Like the cream, CellEssence's eye cream, Nuvacell, uses the same ingredients to fight aging at the source and give you healthier, more youthful-looking skin. Nuvacell also eliminates blood-originating pigments you will find around the eyes, that give you those dreaded dar circles and puffiness. Nuvacell will boost skin regeneration, which in turn will diminish the puffiness and dark circles around the eyes. Nuvacell is also great for removing furrow lines, revitalizing skin tone, and giving the skin some much-needed hydration, as well as restore inflamed pores.

Using these two together are complete powerhouses for really fighting the signs of aging, and work at a deeper level to help the skin regenerate and bring new life to your face.






I got to try both of these products out for the last few weeks and have been absolutely pleased using them both. I used both the Nuvacell eye cream and the CellEssence face cream morning and night to get maximum results. I also used the face cream on the front and back of my neck, d├ęcolletage, and the back of my hands.

What I noticed right away upon use was that my skin felt so soft, supple, and well-moisturized, especially around my eyes! I also had a few late nights with not much sleep and woke to puffy, dark circles. I would use my Nuvacell eye cream right away and within minutes, my eyes would be looking much lighter, brighter, and less inflamed.

With continued use over the last few weeks I certainly feel that my skin looks much more radiant and vibrant. I have been wearing less foundation, and actually am still using my summer sheer BB Cream, because I feel like my skin's sun spots have lightened up enough that I don't need a heavy foundation. I also have a few lines around the eyes and smile lines, and some days they appear more noticeable to me. While I'be been using my CellEssence and Nuvacell, I haven't noticed the fine lines as much.

I feel like using these products have given me a much more even skin tone, as well as more youthful looking AND feeling skin! My skin has also felt incredibly soft and supple the last two weeks, while I have been using these products.

Overall, I'm excited to see what continued use of these products will do for my skin. I love that they are moisturizing enough, my skin hasn't even seemed to notice that it's winter! I know it's rare to find really exceptional beauty products, especially when it comes to face creams and eye creams, but I feel like I have done just that, with CellEssence and Neocell!

Insta Curls with the InstaWave by Kiss


I'm completely obsessed with beauty tools, especially when it comes to hair. I get super excited when I see a new hair tool on the market, that is going to make my morning routine faster, and really give my hair a great style!

I recently came across the InstaWave Automatic Curler by Kiss, and I had to have it! The tool works to create beautiful waves or curls, depending on how tight you curl it and how much hair you curl at once. 

I love the incredible versatility this amazing hair tool can bring you. I'm instantly on board when I know I can get several different looks from one styling tool! 

When my InstaWave showed up, I was so excited to pull it out of the packaging and give it a try! 


My hair was a day old and I had let it air dry the day before and had some product in it, so I decided to put the InstaWave to the test to see if it could give me some great curls and really keep the hold.

BEFORE:

The InstaWave is super easy to use, but give your self a few practice tries, as it is a little different than most hair styling tools you've probably used in the past. I accidentally made this mistake and tried my first piece in the very front of my hair, right next to my face. Try your first and maybe second and third piece underneath or somewhere in the back.

The styling tool heats up right away, and you can adjust to a high or a low setting. I have super thick, full hair, so I went with the high setting, which is a maximum of 420 degrees. You then just wrap the end of some hair around the base of the InstaWave (between the prongs so that it can grab your hair and start twisting) then push the button to have it either rotate left or rotate right (depending on what side of your head your curling, and if you want the curls curling towards your face or outwards.

I started on my left side, and holding the InstaWave vertically, I curled outward by clicking the right side of the button. Like I said, it took me a few tries, but by the second or third try, I had it down. I also started playing with different curls varying how much hair I put in and if I pulled the end in around the thongs to curl up from the bottom or put my hair in towards about the bottom-middle length of my hair, to leave some of my natural ends. (I like leaving some of my ends out of the curl as this tends to give a more natural, wavy look).  You can also curl some curls to the right and some to the left, throughout your hair, to get the most natural looking curls.





When you push the button, the InstaWave will begin rotating until you reach the root of your hair. Just take your finger off the button when you get to the roots, hold for about 5-10 seconds (or less if you're going for loose waves) and then just pull the InstaWave out of the curl by pulling it downwards, vertically. I found my hair came right out of the InstaWave when I got to my roots and held, no problem. I never had any tugging on my hair of any sort, and absolutely no discomfort while using my InstaWave!




By the end of my styling session, I already felt like a pro using my InstaWave. It's super easy to use, and takes about 5-10 minutes to style your hair, depending on if you want tight curls or loose waves, and of course the length and thickness of your hair. 

I went with a look of both some tight curls and some loose waves. I did this mainly because I was testing the styling tool, but I ended up liking the mix of loose waves and tight curls, that I kept this look for the day! 





Here you can see where you can get some tighter barrel curls. Just brush out for a more natural wavy look, or use your fingers to loosen the curls and then apply some holding hairspray or pomade.



I'm absolutely hooked on this styler. It's super easy to use and I love that the barrel doesn't rotate too quickly too so you don't get your hair caught in a nasty mess! This tool is incredibly easy to use that even tween girls could use this product (if you happen to have one or more on your holiday shopping list this year!)

The InstaWave can help you change up your look daily by using it to create tons of different styles. I love the versatility of this styling tool and the fact that it does the work, the actual curling for you! It is a fully automatic curler that curls your hair for you!

Also, if like me, you often leave the house and think, "Oh crap! Did I remember to unplug my curling iron?" Well no more worrying about that! The InstaWave automatically turns off after 90 minutes! This is genius and I am surprised you don't find this on every hair tool on the market! (And yet another good reason this would make the perfect gift for younger girls on your holiday list this year, or if you have a completely forgetful room mate!)



I'm completely obsessed with my InstaWave and have no doubt I will be using it for years to come! This awesome curling iron does the work for me, is completely tangle-free and safe on my hair, and also gives me lots of fabulously different styles in minutes! I also love that my curls hold all day too!


Interested in picking up an InstaWave for your self or someone on your holiday list this year? You can find it at Walmart, Ulta, and Amazon.com. You can also learn more about InstaWave from Kiss by checking out their website, KissInstaWave.com.


Happy Curling!
