Autumn Sweater on Belle Belle Beauty

Thinking about my former city, Austin, tonight as they are dealing with a massive amount of rain. Stay safe, Texas! The rain has arrived here in Oklahoma, but unlike South Texas, it is a welcome relief here. One of my pups is a little under the weather (but overall okay). So this calls for a cozy weekend in with football, cooking (butternut squash salad) and sleeping in.

In the meantime, I am trying out a new skin care routine from dr. brant that I know you guys will be excited to hear about. So far, I am very impressed. And here are some of my favorites from October. I was in major shopping mode this month, investing in and keeping my eye on some “forever” items:

Elemis Pro-Radiance Illuminating Flash Balm Pink Edition

Today I am sharing a little “look good, feel good” beauty gem in honor of October’s awareness and Breast Cancer Care. I hadn’t previously tried this fan favorite product, but was glad to use the good cause as an excuse to finally get my paws on the Elemis Pro-Radiance Illuminating Flash Balm Pink Edition.

We can all agree that radiance is in. Especially when the seasons turn and the colder air starts sapping hydration out of skin. This balm is the solution with vitamins packed in to add hydration and radiance back into our complexions. At first I thought this was a primer and I was half correct – it really does prep skin for seamless makeup application.

While it is definitely a two-in-one for some, I like to layer above my moisturizing sun screen. The citrus-spa scent is delicious – something Elemis does so well. Available at elemis.com and dermstore.com. I also understand that this is available at Nordstrom even though I can’t seem to find it online.


October/Halloween Favorites

Happy Halloween on Belle Belle Beauty

Okay, I am such a curmudgeon. I really don’t care for Halloween. But the kiddos are coming to the office today to trick or treat and I am oddly excited to hand out candy while getting stuff done in anticipation of the weekend.

Now, if I could somehow pull off a way to replicate the above look, you better bet I would embrace the All Hallows’ Eve and hit the town. We shall see what happens. For now, this is “End of October Day” and “Stanford Plays Oregon Tomorrow Day” in this house. And so, here are my favorites from around the web this month:
