Your Invited: LAST Nordstrom Beauty Event of the Season

Midnight-Bronze

Midnight Bronze: It all starts with a flawless complexion, and bronzer adds a warm glow for an overall radiance. Hints of gold on the eye and even lips add a cool metallic touch. For a more dramatic effect, try a flash of blue on the eye or nail – a pop of aqua or cobalt is perfect for summer!

Pretty-striking

Pretty Striking: Bright pink or orange lips, endless lush lashes and faintly flushed cheeks steal the spotlight on spring beauty.

See these looks come to life at your local Nordstrom Beauty Trend Event. Join Nordstrom Beauty for one-on-one time with their savvy beauty experts and industry insiders. They will share the latest beauty tips and tricks while you’re pampered with a free makeup or skincare consultation.

Review: My biotiful bag

20131216182525_1

My biotiful bag is the result of a desire to create a sustainable organic accessory for eco-friendly, stylish shoppers. The handbags are made from certified organic cotton and dyes that are free of heavy metals. The company strives to raise awareness for organic cotton and its positive impact on people and the planet. Their bags are sustainable from the inside out.

A line of accessories for the stylish eco-conscious citizen. Unpretentious, fun and practical bags that go anywhere. My Biotiful Bag is a line of sustainable bags, totes, and pouches that challenges the notion of disposable, trend-driven fashion.

Inspired by effortless French Style and ease of the French countryside, the company was launched in 2010 out of Paris by Colette Guigue.

My Biotiful Bag Review:
I was offered the chance to review one of these bags and they are not only nice bags they are really well made. I chose the Workout Bag in Deep Red. I love the size for the gym or quick overnight trips.

First thing I noticed was the quality of the bag. Its made a really nice durable cotton and had a bunch of great features from a shoulder strap, double zipper to interior pocket to keep valuables and small items safe.

I have used this bag for the gym and a few beach trips and I love it. The double zipper and snaps keeps my stuff in place and its the perfect size, not too big but enough room to fit all the necessities. I really love the color of this bag, the red is so vibrant I can’t get enough.

This will be so handy all summer long, I am so impressed with this line. On top of making great bags I love that the line is eco-friendly. And they have so many styles and colors to choose from any of these bags would make a great gift.

Korres Greek Yoghurt Cooling Gel Aftersun

korres after sun

We enjoyed a beautiful and sunny Memorial day in Oregon yesterday. And unfortunately as I forgot to reapply my sunscreen I was a little red by the time we packed up the BBQ. I grabbed my Korres After Sun Cooling gel and applied it as soon as I noticed the burn.  My skin drank this lotion in! Its so light and fresh and felt so great on. Its not stick and has a fresh and clean scent that smelled as great as it felt on my skin. I used it on my face, lips and shoulders and they all felt better right away.

Today the redness is gone and my skin feels moisturized and soft. This will be a staple for my beach bag this summer!
