My new fav beauty product is actually treatment and make-up in one — the latest and smartest trend in beauty products — is Chantecaille Bio Lift Concealer. The concealer (outer ring) hides dark circles and blemishes while the core delivers a concentration of anti-wrinkle Hexapeptide to relax existing lines. I’ve been using it for 3 weeks now, and definitely notice a difference in my fine lines.
Another gem is Christian Dior’s pore minimizer primer, a skin-refining primer that ratifies and refines the skin, while it minimizes pores. Allows your make-up to last longer and gives a smooth polish to your skin. Another must have.
A product I haven’t used, yet have heard all sorts of rave reviews about, is Illumask anti-aging phototherapy mask. Uses red and infrared light to stimulate skin-cell turnover and produce collagen and elastin. I’ve ordered mine and can’t wait to give it a spin. I’ll keep you posted!
Lastly, it was only a matter of time when a company gave Clarisonic’s sonic cleaning brush a run for it’s money. Phillips, Pure Radiance facial cleansing system lets you experience a thorough and deep cleanse every night. Like, it’s competitor it uses unique sonic technology with advanced dual motion, but retails for $70 less. Since I haven’t invested in the Clairsonic yet, it might be worth a try.
Clockwise: Chantecaille Bio Lift Concealer $69.00 // Christian Dior Pore Minimizer Primer $42.00 // Phillips Pure Radiance Facial Cleansing System $124.99 // Illumask Anti-Aging Phototherapy Mask $30 For 30 Treatments

I’ve been trying to put off reporting on this Fall’s fashion with, what I think, are fairly good results. I am trying to squeeze out every ounce of summer I can (it as been whizzing by at a speed that seems faster than light), but with Fall clothing everywhere you look — stores, magazines and the internet — it’s been close to impossible.
This week’s wish list is a collection of items I’m coveting for fall, like these must have Gucci horsebit ankle boots (which are also sublime as to-the-knee boots). I’m equally as crazy for DKNY’s faux fur striped coat. It’s almost close to impossible to get faux fur that looks and feels this close to the real thing.
But I haven’t forgotten about the rest of our summer days, Jennifer Fisher’s knot choker which comes in gold, rose gold and silver (wear all three colors at once for a great layering look) knows no bounds when it comes to season. And, after searching for a unique side table I came across this ‘Twist Table’ by Stockholm & Phillip Edis. It’s perfect for housing my favorite coffee table books!
Now let’s get back to enjoying the rest of summer!
1. Gucci Horsebit Ankle Boot $995.00 // 2. Rag & Bone Wide Brim Fedora $195.00 // 3. Stilla Tools Of The Trade Brush Set $28.00 //4. DKNY Faux Striped Fur Coat $495.00 // 5 a.

My girlfriends and I decided we all need a night when we can get dolled up, treat ourselves to a nice dinner, and after let off some steam by dancing are a**es off!! And definitely soon! This Isabel Marant Prenite embellished silk top is the prefect starting off point for the night’s look (the fact that it is 60% off is an extra added bonus). Still pricey, but classic enough that you can wear it for ever.
ATM’s yoga tights, made from a featherweight fabric derived from Peru’s abundant beech trees, make them super soft, and the banded cuffs at the ankle lends them an edgy sweat pant look – ideal for dressing down Isabel’s embellished top. Add a pop of color with Valentino’s cutout leather pumps (for an alternate reality click here) – I love this silhouette, and it’s perfect timing, cause I’m over seeing their studded heel on everyone!
With M.M. Lafleur’s drop earrings you don’t have to worry about losing them while dancing the night away. They may sparkle like real diamonds, but these flawless lab-created diamonds are a portion of the price. You can also have some piece of mind; these stones are chemically, physically, and optically identical to mined diamonds, but they’re eco-friendly and conflict-free. To round out your look Rebecca Minkoff’s mini Paris bag is chic and priced just right.
Don’t let a last minute blemish ruin your evening, make sure to have Sarah Chapman’s spot stickers on hand. These entirely invisible, healing spot stickers speed up the recovery from blemishes in a flash. I swear by them!
Clockwise: Isabel Marant Prenite Embellished Silk-Crepe Top $2365.00 on sale for $946.00 // ATM Long Yoga Tights $175.00 // Sarah Chapman Spot Sticker Set of 16 $40.00 // Rebecca Minkoff Mini Paris Crossbody $295.00 // M.M. Lafleur The Drop Earrings $175.00 // Valentino Hitch On Cutout Leather Pumps $1145.00

I’ve been yearning for a pair of Roger Vivier shoes for years now. The pilgrim buckle is divine, and it makes for the perfect block heel pump – classic and chic. The Salvatore Ferragamo heels are another favorite, as are the River Island sandals with the rhinestone heel – so fun!
Actually I’m loving this silhouette for many reasons besides being versatile – looks fab with dress/skirts and cropped pants – and chic. At 5’10” when I wear heels I tower over most of my friends, which most of the time is fine, but there are times when it’s nice to wear a heel and not top 6′.
Clockwise: Salvatore Ferragamo Block Heel Pump $625.00 // Jimmy Choo Iris Square Toe Pumps // Nicholas Kirkwood Suede Block Heel Pumps $595.00 // Roger Vivier Pilgrim Buckle Pumps $788.00 // River Island Light Pink Patent Rhinestone Heel Sandals $80.00 // Charles & Keith Open Toe Heels $66.00
