Jennifer Aniston

November/December Favourites

November December Favourites
It’s hard to believe that 2015 is just around the corner (a.k.a: tomorrow).  From smooth skin, to the perfect blowout, to a beautifully scented room, November and December have introduced me to some awesome beauty and fashion items, which are sure to help start the new year off right.  Here we go!

1. Mac Lipstick in “Rebel” $19.00  

I had heard great things about this lipstick, and was lucky enough to receive it as a Christmas gift this year.  The colour is perfection and I love the way it changes depending on the amount you apply: a rich purple if applied with a heavier hand, and a pretty pinkish-berry colour if applied thinly.  Long lasting and with a satin finish, this lipstick is surprisingly wearable (don’t be scared by the colour in the tube!).  There’s a reason it’s a Mac best seller (and I now know why)!

2. Living Proof Perfect Hair Day 5-in-1 Styling Treatment $18.00

When it comes to hair care products, I tend to have my tried-and-true: I’m not super adventurous.  I received this product in sample format from Sephora, and decided to give it a try.  To be honest, I wasn’t expecting much: how can one product really make your blow-dried hair look any better?  Well, it turns out it can.  This product is oil and silicone free, so it is weightless and doesn’t look greasy, and my after using it, my hair looked voluminous, polished, and much less frizzy than normal.  Fun fact: after trying and loving Living Proof products, Jennifer Aniston became a co-owner!

3. Scentsy Deluxe Warmer in “Leopard” $36.00

I was recently invited to a Scentsy party, and was excited to purchase my very first warmer.  After debating between 3 warmers, (including the Vintage Teapot and Paris warmers), I decided on the Leopard one.  There are a number of things I love about these warmers, and I use mine nearly every day.  First, they’re safe: no need to worry about an open flame, or forgetting to blow it out.  They’re also effective: one scent cube lasts around 8 hours and really does fill the entire room with fragrance.  Some of my favourite scents?  Satin Sheets, Vanilla Suede, Business Casual (think: a man’s cologne), and Sugar (which smells exactly like Pink Sugar perfume).

4. Tarte Prismatic Eye Color Enhancing Shadow Palette For Rich Brown Eyes $14.00

Initially, this palette was a bit of an impulse-purchase when Sephora had their “extra 20% off sale items” event.  On sale for $17.00 (already a great deal), I purchased this for around $13.60 after the extra 20% off.  The colours in this palette are beautiful: rich, pigmented, and yes, they really do make brown eyes “pop”.  While it is no longer available on the Sephora website, Tarte does offer similar colours if you’re interested in re-creating this palette.  I highly recommend it!

5. Jergens BB Body Perfecting Skin Cream $9.97

I received this product in my Spark Sessions gift bag, and have been using it daily ever since.  In just as little as 5 days, you’ll notice your skin is more hydrated, illuminated, even, and firm.  It applies smoothly, smells great (a mix of floral and musky notes), and comes in two tone-matching formulas: one for light skin tones, and one for medium-deep skin tones.

Here’s to many more fashion and beauty favourites in 2015!

October/November Fashion and Beauty Favourites!

November Favourites1. “AE Chambray Shirt” by American Eagle Outfitters

This shirt is soft, durable, and extremely comfortable, which means you’ll want to (and can) wear it every day.  A wardrobe staple, it can be worn endless ways: wear it open over your favourite tee or tank, tie it and wear it as a shrug over your favourite Summer dress to help transition it to Fall, layer it underneath a cozy sweater, or simply wear it buttoned up with a great statement necklace on top (my personal fave).   My favourite thing about this top?  The neutral coloured buttons allow you to wear any colour jewellery you’d like (no need to match the gold or silver toned hardware on this beauty!).

2. “Dropping By” Necklace by Mark (Avon)

I have been a fan of the Mark brand for quite some time.  What I love about this necklace is that it’sMark Necklace reversible: one side has sparkle, the other is a matte-silver tone. You also have the option to adjust the length (24.5-33 inches).  It’s easy to match, unique, and great quality.  Feeling adventurous? Try layering it with shorter necklaces for extra pizazz! 

3. Jennifer Aniston Eau de Parfum 

This is one of my favourite celebrity-inspired perfumes, which I purchased when it was first released, but recently rediscovered.  This perfume has notes of jasmine, violet, rose water, amber, sandalwood, musk, and more.  Floral enough for the Summer, but musky enough for the Fall,  you can reach for this scent all year round.  Cool fact? A fan of Summer days at the beach, Jennifer Aniston even designed the bottle to look like a cresting wave.

4.  Mineral Powder Blotting Tissues by The Body Shop

As someone who struggles with oily skin on a day-to-day basis, these blotting sheets are heaven-sent.  A true multi-tasker, this product removes oil from the face, while also distributing a small amount of mattifying mineral powder.  Fool proof as it’s made for all skin types, and wallet friendly at just $5.00 for 65 sheets, grab a pack for the car, your purse, your desk…you get the idea!

5. AEO Statement Ring” by American Eagle Outfitters

This ring has been my go-to since I purchased it last month.  It is big and bold enough to make a statement, yet light and thin enough to be extremely comfortable.  With pretty, intricate detailing, including 3 rhinestones for shine, this ring looks great paired with your favourite dark nail polish.

6. Rhinestone Button Earrings by Payless Shoe Source

Sparkly yet elegant and simple, these extremely affordable earrings go with nearly everything.  Pair them with a pretty up-do to show them off, or your leave your hair down for some unexpected sparkle when you “happen” to flip your hair.  Not a fan of the gold tone? They also come in silver, here.  

7. Revlon Nail Art Moon Candy in “Galactic”  

This is by far, one of the coolest drugstore nail polishes I have found in a long time.  The double ended stick provides both a glossy base coat, and a sparkly, opalescent top coat.  The base coat was so thick and pigmented, I only need 1 coat prior to applying the top coat.  The effect that these polishes give is really unique, and is far from the simple glitter top coats you find in nearly every brand’s lineup.  Check out the Revlon website for all the fun and unique ways you can wear this polish.  The only downside is that it is a little difficult and messy to remove.  The upside? It lasts a really long time, and the compliments will be well worth it!

8. Harmonie Necklace by Aldo in “Light Green”

For me, this necklace was love at first sight (and it was on sale…don’t you just love when the stars align?).  Pair it with a simple crew neck t-shirt or sweater and you’ll go from a lazy Sunday afternoon, to a Friday night on the town.  Not only does it shine beautifully, it’s also extremely durable and has substantial weight to it.  It also comes in other colours, depending on the season.  Keep an eye out for them on the Aldo website, here.

Proof that these really are some of my favourite things this month?  You can find me wearing the shirt, ring, and necklace from this list in the picture from my previous post, here!
