Mad for Plaid

I am all in when it comes to plaid.  I love the the tuxedo details on this blazer and could not resist matching my heels.  I kept it high/low with my new favorite vintage straight denim.  If you have been frustrated with distressed holes that continue to grow, these are for you.  They are patched underneath.

I updated my makeup with a few products by Chanel.  Including: a neutral eye shadow palette (Les Beiges) that I am already using more colors than the beige (they made the lightest color twice as large as the other colors – brilliant!).  I am also wearing the mimosa light creating base, blush (elegance)brow pencil (blond dore), eyeliner (feuilles) , volume mascara (black), lip liner (nude) and a new color (light rose) of my favorite long-wearing lip color.

When I get home from a night out you will find me in any combination of these slippers, pajamas and scarves after removing all my makeup with my Eve Lom Cleanser.

Skincare Regime – Eve Lom

I have noticed a huge change in my skin since using Eve Lom.  I started with her signature cleanser which comes with a muslin cloth that makes the cleansing process also exfoliating.  I used to dread washing my face before bed.  The cleanser with the hot cloth is so relaxing that now I look forward to it. It removes all makeup including waterproof mascara and leaves the skin soft.  The cleanser comes with one to two cloths (depending on the size).  You can also buy a pack of three cloths.  I like to use a fresh cloth each day.

I gradually tried other products and now both my husband and I are regular users.   The Daily Protection SPF 50 works so well and we both wear it everyday.  It is very light and also moisturizing.  There is nothing worse than trying to put makeup over a sunscreen that is thick and sticky.   Did you know it also protects against rays from florescent lighting and computer screens, which can also cause skin cancer?

White Collection

We started using the White Collection when it was first introduced.  We both saw a huge change in our skin in terms of getting rid of any dark spots. In addition to brightening the skin they products also help produce collagen.  A little goes a long way.  We have both been using the products daily since January and only recently had to replenish. The White Collection includes the Brightening Lotion, Brightening Serum, Brightening Cream, and Brightening Mask

Two masks back to back once a week

Once a week, we have mask night.  We start with the Rescue Mask and then do the Brightening Mask.  The Rescue Mask preps the skin and clears impurities so that the Brightening Mask can penetrate.  The Brightening Mask comes in a pack of eight individual cotton masks.  They do give you a bit of a Jason from “Friday the 13th” look, but they are very effective and easy to use. It is nice to have a partner in my skincare regime.  My husband will remind me when it is mask night. This is the first time in a long time that we have used one line exclusively.  The products work well, have minimal chemicals, and no artificial fragrances.

Here’s to great skin!
