Loving Summer Leather

Loving Summer Leather

Last night we met great friends for supper at BLT Steak in Midtown Manhattan. The food and the company were fabulous. We found this beautiful fountain and some amazing architecture right on the corner.

I’m getting so excited for fall fashion that I broke out my stretch leather leggings for the evening. Summer leather has actually been quite the trend of late. When paired with open toe shoes and a lightweight flowing top it works quite well and gives off a nice, chic vibe. Genuine leather is great in the summer because the natural fabric breathes. Pleather or vegan leather is a good option in the winter, but is just too hot for a summer evening in the city. So excited to wear these with boots and sweaters!

New In NARS

Yesterday I got some much needed “me” time and took a trip to my favourite mall, The Mall at Short Hills. While walking through Saks Fifth Avenue I was stopped by two super nice girls at the NARS counter who offered to do my makeup. Why not? It’s always fun to get pampered a little and look great when you’re done right?

Not only did they do my makeup, they taught me how to do exactly what they were doing! It’s great to leave looking fabulous but it’s even better to be able to duplicate the look at home. Doreen would do one side and then give me the brushes, showing me which sizes to use, and how to use them effectively for each step and I would do the other side. She emphasized the importance of highlighting and bronzing in the proper areas to make you glow and look alive. Perhaps the most important thing I finally learned was how to shape my eyebrows. Eyebrows have always been the most difficult part of my makeup routine. Doreen showed me how to set the points for each end and that perfect little arch in the centre so that I would appear bright-eyed and bushy tailed! They had just come out with a new eyeshadow pallet that gave you five colours to try for a reasonable price. A no brainer. When you first look at this blush in it’s cute little container you think “Holy Cow. That’s bright!”, but applied properly it’s actually amazing! I even got some fun little goodies with my purchase. Thanks NARS and Saks! So much fun!
