Favorite Products This Spring

Spring has sprung and so my seasonal beauty regimen update has begun! Below are my favorites of the moment.
 
 

 
 
 
1. Cover FX Contour Kit - Still trying to figure out how to Contour like a Kardashian but I think this palette will get me pretty close. I got the light/medium for pink undertones. The brush that is recommended for it is awesome, as well.

2. Arcona Cranberry Toner Cleansing Pads - These are my, new can't live without, post-cleansing essentials. After I wash my face at night, I use these to make sure ever spec of makeup is off. They have a clean/tingly feeling and I love to use them mid day when I'm feeling oily or in need of a refresh. Arcona is an all-natural company too, which is great.

3. Mason Pearson Mixed Bristle Brush - After my brother stole my first one, it was time to get another.
 
4. Bare Minerals Ready Eyeshadow 4.0 - I love Bare Minerals and their shadow are always beautifully pigmented. Loving this one for spring.

5. Bumble and Bumble Sunday Shampoo - This shampoo is recommended for a once a week deep-clean and it works wonders. Your hair feels completely clean and I love how well it lathers. It gets out all of the residue and is a detox for your hair.

6. Bare Minerals Well Rested Cooling CC Eye Primer - Goes on cool to the touch and is exactly what you need in the morning on your under eyes. Decent coverage, as well.
 
7. Nars Lip Gloss in Turkish Delight - I love the texture of Nars lip glosses because they don't dry out your lips and they don't feel too sticky. This color is light and bright and my favorite for spring.

8 and 9. Bare Minerals bareSkin® Pure Brightening Serum Foundation Broad Spectrum SPF 20 - This is the first foundation I've found that I actually like. I can't stress enough how important it is to find the right shade because my first go around was terrible. I got a shade that was far too light and it made me look like a clown. I love that it gives you full coverage but you know you're not murdering your skin because it's Bare Minerals. The brush is a must.

10. Smashbox LA Lights Blendable Lip and Cheek Color in Silver Lake Sunset - Haven't tried this yet but love the color and the idea.
 
11. Oribe Gold Lust Transformative Hair Mask - Take your hair from drab to fab and deeply nourish it - adds a boost in strength and shine.

12 and 13. Arcona Gentle Solution PM Repair - Twice a week a wash my face and the slather this gel on and go to bed. This solution repairs sun damage and resurfaces dry and sensitive skin. You can feel the tingling when it goes on and it's a deep exfoliator - my skin literally glows the next day after I scrub it off with the Arcona Golden Grain Gommage.

14. Bare Minerals Complexion Rescue Tinted Hydrating Cream Gel - This light hydrating gel has become my daily go-to. It gives you a slight glow and keeps you covered with SPF.

Jessica Alba's Stunning "Tree-House"

Domaine Home is one of my absolute favorite sites. They feature some of the most stunning interiors and often give a glimpse into celebs' homes. Yesterday they featured Jessica Alba in her first home that although she doesn't live there anymore, she uses it as a guest house and even rents it. The fact that it isn't her primary home gives her more room to have fun with it and boy did she ever. It is a little jewel box! The home has tall ceilings, spiral loft-like staircases and bold colors while still feeling breezy. I would like to move in immediately. She enlisted her friends at Consort Design to help with the project. The bedrooms are eclectic yet clean and the artwork is stunning. The Honest Company's co-founder, Jessica, looked stunning and like a part of the design in her red and blue hues. I am a huge blue girl so all of the Farrow and Ball blues in this house made me swoon. Also, the "No Condo. No MBA. No BMW" print in the one bedroom is pretty epic.

Every Pair of Spring Shoes You Need

One day I will have a closet filled with these in ever color. Until then, I will daydream over the Chloe, Isabel Marant and Rag and Bone booties below for Coachella, the gorgeous sandals and flats and maybe even pick up a pair of those pretty wedges.

Spring Wedding: Two Ways

So I tried on the L'Agence maxi dress, pictured below, today at Jill Roberts and it is hands down the cutest, most flattering maxi I have ever tried on. Someway somehow I will get my hands on it. The dress inspired me to do a Spring wedding attire post because it really would be so cute for a wedding or for anything. Seriously. It's that cute. Style with a colorful shoe and fun earrings and you're good to go. The Rag and Bone nude mule/wedges are an absolute must for spring/summer. Tory just picked up a pair and I am very very jealous. The Nicholas floral dress is a beauty too.

My Life Lately

I haven't done an update in the new year and it's already March - how did that happen?? Things at johnnie-O have been busy busy busy with photoshoots and new products. I'm just finishing up my second quarter at FIDM for my Apparel Industry Management degree - it has flown by! January highlights include a great trip to Boca Grande and an unbelievable trip to Turks and Caicos with Riley for All-Star Break. I also went home to support NUSEA (national urban squash education association), who was celebrating their 20th anniversary. Lots of traveling! February highlights included the johnnie-O photo shoot, Jackson Hole skiing, super bowl fun and my first trip to Vegas. My best friend, Lauren, was in town after quitting her job and she is now settling in Australia. So fun to get to spend time with her. johnnie-O sponsored the O.A.R concert and green room at the PGA Northern Trust Open at Riviera Golf Course and it was a hit! Finally, I had my whole family in town for my godson, Jack's, baptism and my uncle, Chris, got a star on the walk of fame. I ate well and had fun - here's to a successful Q2!

Leather Jackets for Spring

Leather isn't just for Fall and Winter anymore. I've seen a ton of "Spring" leather and suede and I am loving it. So much so that I had to get the IRO light blue leather jacket below... Just had to. The blush and spring green ones are also adorable.
