A New Kind Of SS14

With summer approaching (weather depending of course) it’s not only time for some new wardrobe pieces (Printed shorts? Metallic sandals? Impractical sunnies?) but also time to revisit the skincare department. As temperatures rise, it becomes less comfortable to wear a face full of makeup. And with a good foundation (and I don’t mean liquid or powder) you won’t have to.

SS14 typically refers to the Spring/Summer 2014 collections but today we’re giving it a whole new meaning — Summer Skin 2014 (after all, having good skin is always in fashion).

July Beautified

I hate to make another one of those “beauty obsessions” posts (I’m sure you see plenty) but I’ve been trying a lot of new products lately and I haven’t done a beauty post in a while, so I thought I’d give it a go. This isn’t necessarily a summer beauty feature (these products are great now as well as year round) but because it’s July which means summer is in full swing (although that’s questionable in Chicago) it’s time to get your July beautified.

Let’s Get Pretty

As much as I joke about New Years resolutions, the ones I posted earlier this week are sort of true. They are things I’d like to accomplish but if it doesn’t all happen in 2013 I’m not going to freak out about it (plus I know I’m going to have difficulty with resolution 4).

So let’s take baby steps and visit resolution 2: up the beauty routine.

July Beauty Obsessions

I used to do beauty obsessions posts, then I kind of forgot about them/haven’t tried many new products that I’m absolutely in love with…but this month, that all changed. I tried a some new beauty products recently (covering the main categories: cosmetics, hair and skincare) that I love so much I couldn’t keep them to myself.

Here’s a look at my current beauty obsessions. Hope you’ll love them as much as I do!
