BRING ON 2014

I can’t believe another year has flown by, but I couldn’t be more excited for this coming year.
This year has been one of ups and downs, and I hope that this year brings nothing but happiness and good memories.
On that note, I’ve come up with a few must-dos for 2014:
  • Buy a rockin’ jumpsuit
  • Try and wear lipstick every day – I’ve got a new wine shade to play with
  • Try a new scent – I’m thinking Miss Dior Cherie… thoughts anyone?
  • Do yoga/pilates at least three times a week
  • Try some new hairstyles – maybe some braids or buns?
  • Keep blogging every day
In ELLE’s January 2014 issue, they released their international beauty awards. And, here are the winners:
  1. L’Oreal Professional Mythic Oil Nourishing Masque
  2. Dior Diorshow Iconic Overcurl mascara
  3. Clarins Body Lift Cellulite Control
  4. Lancome Teint Visionnaire
  5. Clinique A Different Nail Enamel for Sensitive Skins
  6. Lerastase Spray a Porter
  7. Givenchy Le Rouge
  8. Nivea In-Shower Body Lotion Skin Conditioner
  9. Bumble and Bumble Surf Foam Wash Shampoo
  10. Estee Lauder Advanced Night Repair
  11. Chanel’s Anti-aging triumvirate – Le Jour de Chanel, La Nuit de Chanel, Le Weekend de Chanel
  12. La Mer Face and Body Gradual Tan
  13. Hermes Jour d’Hermes fragrance
  14. GlamGlow Youthmud
With a new year comes new products, new looks and the need to organize! Sick of searching through those nail polishes and sifting through your makeup? Organize that vanity, medicine cabinet and under the sink with some of these tips:
  • Recycle candle holders and turn them into storage cups for lip glosses, eyeliners and more
  • Edit your stash of makeup and put your daily stuff in separate containers or drawers
  • Decorate a little box to keep nail polishes contained
  • Repurpose shot glasses and decorative plates to hold rings and small earrings
  • Show of your fragrances on mini cake trays. So cute and can be found for cheap!
  • Remove shelving from your cabinets and make it magnetic by hot-gluing a sheet of metal to the back. Add a magnet onto your small makeup containers and stick!
  • Gather files, nail brushes and clippers into a glass for fumble-free access to mani goods
  • Keep hair dryers and irons untangled by storing them in sturdy magazine files, cords down and secured with elastics
  • Adhesive utility hooks create a place for headbands and combs
I’m looking forward to a closet, makeup and accessories clean out this week so that I’m ready to tackle everything that comes my way. I hope that you all are having a great new year so fas and are celebrating the great things to come – I started mine off with a luxurious bubble bath (wine and strawberries on the side).
HAPPY NEW YEAR!!
xx, B
