Beauty Sleep on Belle Belle Beauty

I have no idea why I am so so tired this week! Not enough naps can pop me out of this funk. Something about this most recent birthday – the big 3-5 – made me realize I just have to take care of myself better. I am not a very high energy person in the first place. So you can imagine what happens when I get exhausted. Not to mention, I am a big believer of beauty sleep. Thank goodness for this newness from SK-II that is tiding me over in the meantime.

This weekend will be my “staycation”. I just want to blog, get a massage and do lots of at home facial things. And be ready for the Labor Day celebrations.

Speaking of… I am SO EXCITED for fall and football, particularly fall boots, jeans and sweaters. While we have had a mild summer overall, we are in the 100s this week and (to me) it is just miserable. Anyway, here are some finds from around the web this week. And see ya tomorrow – until then… it is off to bed!

The DIY Manicure: A How-To

I’ve been loading up on work wear and it has basically all been Vince (their fall goods are killer)

Byredo Bal D’Afrique Eau de Parfum

August 20, 2014 bath and body

There has been quite a bit of buzz about Byredo in the beauty community. I was captivated by the cool Scandinavian packaging and sexy names of all the scents. Based in Stockholm, Byredo was founded by a painter and has partnered with some iconic perfumers. All the fragrances are inspired by locations or works of […]

I’m certainly not going to turn down a reason to relax. For some reason, this week I have been filled with sluggishness. I don’t know if it is the heat or just being a little worn down. Or the myriad of tech difficulties that plagued Monday and Tuesday. But either way, I am going to […]

It is so hard to review a fragrance. I consider it such a personal preference. But this one from Neiman’s took me by surprise. I usually love musky, Oriental and masculine scents. But this being summer, I guess I need a change of pace. When I first encountered Cartier Fragrance Baiser Volé Lys Rose Eau […]

Leave it to the queen of a flawless complexion to come up with the newest and greatest foundation. This newness is called Finish Flawless for a reason. Expect a lightweight texture that is so the rage right now. Technology has brought us great coverage without feeling one bit heavy. What I like most about is […]

I purchased the above dress after seeing it on Happily Grey last summer and wear it constantly (a favorite fashion inspiration blog). I came across the image again yesterday and it reminded me of the way I feel about this time of year – I have a love/hate relationship. In August, the excitement of warm […]

Why does Kiehl’s always have the coolest events? Probably because they are just a cool company like that. Especially inspired are those to raise money for amfAR and awareness to help cure AIDS. Today marks the start of the fifth annual Keihl’s Liferide that starts in Milwaukee and continues to New York on 8/11.  In […]

By now, we all know how damaging the sun’s rays can be. But there is something about summertime that makes me crave a golden glow. Plus, skin-kissed skin disguises flaws. You can beat a little body makeup on the legs if you are wearing a cocktail dress. Or for that matter a bikini. Or shorts! […]

One of the most resounding trends in the beauty business lately is utlizing skin care to improve skin rather than covering it up with makeup. Wouldn’t we all prefer to look great bare? I know I would. But for me in particular, this means embracing my freckles. Rather than using foundation this summer, I am […]

If there is one area of grooming that I am lacking in, it has to be body lotion. Embarrassingly enough, I remember an elementary school teacher reminding me to put lotion on my legs – definitely a requirement in my super dry childhood home of Denver, Colorado. Now that I got that little confession off […]

There is something just plain sexy about NARS goodies on your vanity. And while the brand has been a pioneer in shocking pigments, there is something about their wearable neutrals that just can’t be beat. So no surprise that their NARSissist Smokey Eye Compact is an instant classic. Instead of going grey or black, this […]

I have a confession. I used to be not terribly picky about mascaras. As long as I got inky black lashes, I didn’t really pay attention to performance. But as a diligent beauty blogger, I have focused on being hyper-aware of how a mascara performs lately. This post by Beauty Look Book captivated me with […]

Now in the full swing of summer pool weather, I am guessing that most of us have bemoaned somewhat uneven skin and maybe some nasty cellulite. And if you are beauty/skin care buff like me, you also know that there is no permanent at-home treatment for this nasty little feature. There is good news though. […]

If someone forced me to pick one skin care line for the rest of my days, Kate Somerville would definitely be a contender. Having visited her spa, used her products over a period of years and been lucky enough to meet Kate in person, I consider myself a “super-fan”. Things have been a little quiet […]

Summer is the time for those dream trips, often abroad. Even if we don’t have one planned, we might be daydreaming about being on a beach in Greece or strolling the Parisian avenues. Without leaving our vanities, we can bring the exotic into our lives via beauty. So many of the international beauty staples have […]
