beauty closet…coral and nectar spring trend 2014

hello. i am so excited to share spring beauty trends over the next month, especially my post for next week. big voluminous, slightly off kilter hair. the hair you want. tips tricks and products so stay tuned!!!

today we are talking about one beauty trend that is so stinking easy and looks beautiful on all skin tones. “coral” or “nectar” is what they are calling it. its the perfect look of warm and flattering with a little fun punch. Lacey found some gorgeous colors from Bobbi Brown and the drugstore and we have been emailing and texting about them for days.southern california beauty blogger talks spring trends deborah lippman coral nail polish for spring beauty trend coral and nectar

coral beauty trends for spring 2014

 

bobbi brown shimmer brick $42 / deborah lippman nail polish $18 / nectar lip pot for lips and cheeks $26 / nars multiple stick $40

spring 2014 beauty trend coral and nector

 No. 1 nars multiple stick $40 - for the cheeks and lips. there is a reason Nars keeps pumping out the orgasm color line, it looks great on everyone. a peachy pink with a little shimmer. i put the orgasm on the apples of my cheeks and cheekbone, being careful to not put over the fine lines under my eyes. that is the last thing i want to highlight.

No. 2 underneath the Orgasm i blend Nars St. Barts multiple stick for a bronzy look and took contour my cheekbone a little.

Revlon Colorburst Matte Balm in Mischeiveious $6.49: I looove matte lipsticks. this one is a great matte. when i first applied the balm it seemed too bright but with just a little blending with my finger it turned into this soft peachy shade. i apply it to the apples of my cheeks as well. love.

No. 4:  Bobbi Brown  lip pot for lips and cheeks in nectar $26  my favorite. it is what i am wearing in the pictures. goes on beautiful and blends seamlessly.

No. 5: Essie Tart Deco $8

No. 6 deborah lippman nail polish $18 /: as seen in the picture.

What do you think? You in on this trend??

i told you…

remember when i was doing the gap giveaway and was like ” and i want you to pay special attention to no. 6 because i think i will wear that flat boot every single day this spring”.  hate to tell you, but i told you so. these boots are perfect for spring. thank you to those who listened. i see you and i know you don’t regret it.

here are a couple more of my spring picks you won’t regret. the sandal. the boot. the fancy bootie. links below image.

sandal $89 / old navy bootie $32/ cut out bootie heel $139

ruby tuesdays… black and gold stripes

once baseball season starts our family spends hours upon hours at the ball fields. myes plays. dad coaches. we sit. we cheer. we cringe when a kid pitches a hard ball right towards my boy’s face. and ruby and ello? they play. they have a sort of younger sibling baseball tribe composed of the other player’s siblings. they roam in a pack. they climb this hill and hide behind the trees. they beg to go to the snack shack. they run and run and run through the grass and when they are pooped they share an iphone and pirates booty and zone out.

spring means…lets play ball hulls.arrows and aspen leggings for girls gold and black metallic leggings for girls striped leggings for girls

have you heard of arrow and aspen? remember these cheetah harem pants that remain one of missy’s faves?  arrow and aspen are the name behind these gold and black striped leggings and tank top. this small business is run by two southern california mamas who promise to “ provide uniquely created items designed straight from their gypsy hearts”. i mean their gypsy hearts? does it get any cuter then that? each season they continue to create the pieces we want to have.

here are some more of my faves this season for boys and girls sizes 18 months to 6T:
