My Favorite Links of the Week

March 27, 2015

Happy Friday! How was your week? Those palm trees are really giving me summer vibes. The weather has been dreary here in New York with lots of showers. I guess it really is springtime. FYI Bloomingdale's is having a friends and family sale where you can get 25% off on most items. Before you begin shopping check out my favorite links of the week below:

Say Hello To Smooth Lips With These Lip Scrubs


Now that winter is finally over it is time to get your lips into tip-top shape. Winter's cold chills and harsh winds always make my lips super dry and flaky. I feel like my lips are perpetually chapped. Ugh. That's why I'm obsessed with lip scrubs. Not only do lip scrubs remove peeling skin on lips but they give lips instant hydration. I rotate between the scrubs below and use a toothbrush with the scrub to further help get rid of dead skin. Make sure to apply a lip balm right after. I'm a lip balm hoarder but most times I use Aquaphor. How cute is this little mini version?!


Victoria's Secret Beauty VS Pro Smooth FX Lip Scrub and Balm
The cool thing about this scrub is that it is a two-in-one. It has both a scrub and a balm designed for your convenience. The scrub works great! It feels just like sugar on your lips. Unfortunately this lip scrub has been discontinued. But VS has just released a newer version! Now I know what to get when this one bites the dust.


Okay this seriously smells so good! It smells exactly like vanilla and it reminds me of a Yankee Candle. This scrub is very hydrating that sometimes I don't even need to apply a balm afterwards. I really have to prevent myself from actually eating this stuff — it's that good! This scrub has caramel, grape seed oil, and jojoba seed oil.


How pretty is that baby pink color? This scrub smells just like cherries and with just a pea-size amount lips feels smooth. Since this formula is whipped the scrub is not super harsh and instead feels soft on application. Plus the cherries used are 100% natural. 



Although this is not a lip scrub, this lip mask, other than Aquaphor or your favorite lip balm, is the perfect addition your lip care stash. This makes your lips super super soft and the organic agave nectar, jojoba oil, and vanilla extract will help heal even the worst chapped lips.


If you go to Sephora you can get both the Bite Beauty lip mask and a whipped cherry scrub stick for only $15! 


What's your favorite lip scrub?

April 2015 Magazine Covers

March 4, 2015

As you all know I am a huge magazine reader/collector. I'm subscribed to a few magazines but to be honest I mostly go to my nearest Target or Duane Reade and buy new issues from the newsstand. I get so excited when new covers are revealed especially when the cover star is someone that I think is awesome. Take a look below at some cool ladies that are gracing the cover of this year's April issues:

Shailene Woodley on the cover of Glamour UK. Can't wait to see her in the new movie "Insurgent" this month. She is also one of my favorite Top Shelves from Into the Gloss. Check out her beauty confessions here.


Via: Cosmopolitan UK

One of my favorite actresses, Cameron Diaz, on the cover of Cosmopolitan UK. This cover is giving me serious spring vibes. Maybe it's because of the fruity smoothie she's sipping on. Am I the only one who spent this past weekend watching Cameron Diaz movies? I watched "The Other Woman" and "Sex Tape." Love her!

The amazing Tatiana Maslany on the cover of Canada's Flare mag. If you are not watching BBC's "Orphan Black" then you are completely missing out. Maslany plays dozens of characters on the show and does an excellent job doing it. I think this may be her first major cover. I can't wait for season three of Orphan Black! Check out the preview here.


Via: Cosmopolitan
My childhood role model Hilary Duff on the cover of Cosmopolitan. Words cannot express how much I admire her. I remember when her first album "Metamorphosis" was released and how much I begged my dad to buy it for me. When he finally bought it for me the CD would play in my CD player nonstop. I'm so excited to hear more new music from her. Listen to her latest single "All About You" here.


What issues are you looking forward to picking up?
