Introducing Kendra Scott's latest....

Being a huge fan of Kendra Scott I am thrilled
to announce the launch of her new Candle Collection~

Inspired by gemstones used throughout the jewelry and home collections, KS Candles are crafted with the four alluring and complex scents - Signature (for when you're feeling happy)Rose Quartz (for when you're feeling flirty)Malachite (for when you're feeling confident),  and Amethyst (for when you're feeling creative).
I attended the beautiful luncheon last week at the Nasher Sculpture Garden to celebrate this "scent-sational" collection.

 Back in 2013 is when I first met Kendra and featured her infamous "Color Bar" that had just launched at Neiman Marcus (where the below picture of us was taken).
She is such an inspiration to every #GirlBoss out there....
and she is as sweet as she is successful.
I could not be more happy for her!

With so many amazing beauty products available now why not choose lines that are good for you and for the environment.
I love supporting brands that have various qualities such as 
cruelty free, 
vegan and gluten free
 or have natural, plant based organic ingredients.
There's a term for this....
it's called 
Here are a few of my Clean Beauty Favorites that just launched this Spring~

In particular, I LOVE the "Snap Happy Make up Kit" with its easy swivel of instant makeup options on-the-go perfect to pack for travel!  
PureMatte Translucent Finish Powder
Whisper PurePressed Blush in shimmery peachy pink
Eyeshadow Triple threat in easy to wear shades

Introducing Snow Fox, a plant based skincare line that offers organic, high potency beauty products for flawless skin.  
My personal favorite as a skin pick-me-up after traveling is the 
$30 for a package of 5 masks
Amazing for Hydration, Brightening, Detox (for enlarged pores, blemish outbreaks, redness, oily T zones, greasiness), After Sun Care 

Springtime means showing more skin!  
Firmer looking skin is on everyone's wish list over the age of 35 and the 
PUR firm celluFIRM lotion goes on silky smooth and instantly my skin looks firmer, smoother and more supple.
Add a fresh coat of spray tan and your ready to go!:-)
This products triple-action technology stimulates micro-circulation to smooth the appearance of the skin and reduce the appearance of cellulite. The end result is a firmer, more toned looking body. 
Crazy statistic: 
88% of the patients showed a significant decrease in thigh circumference.

The Better Skin Co is known for its Gluten-free, Vegan product line and has a 3-in-1 product that I am OBSESSED with~
$32 for 2 fl. oz
Its a daily cleanser, an exfoliating scrub AND a revitalizing mask!
Its skin cleansing volcanic lava from France enriched with nourishing calendula, sweet orange and grape seed oils, cucumber, parsley, and chamomile translates to healthy radiant, more youthful looking skin.

And finally a Pioneer in the Natural Cosmetic Skin arena...
Rose Blossom Revitalizing Care is a delicious refresher that leaves my skin feeling revitalized.  It's a 2-phase anti-aging care product, containing valuable plant oils and rose blossom extract from the precious, organic damask rose. The soothing natural care components also smell delicious!
Wishing everyone a Happy Spring!!

and of course...
HAPPY SHOPPING!!

It's Serendipity

The definition of "Serendipity" is to come upon something by chance in a 
happy or beneficial way....
What a perfect name for this amazing skincare line that I recently discovered!

Cruelty-free and made in the USA, the Serendipity Skin Care collection is designed to be a simple but effective one-stop solution for all. The comprehensive collection includes preventative and maintenance treatments addressing key concerns of skin such loss of elasticity, fine lines, moisture imbalance and pigmentation issues.
I love the way it makes my skin feels, its reasonably priced and the packaging is pretty fabulous!:-) 
Here are my two favs from the line~

Sparkle Rejuvenating Eye Serum $68

Let your eyes say it all with Serendipity Sparkle Eye Serum. Formulated with 5 unique peptides that mimic the life-giving growth factors found in the human placenta, this advanced formula helps reverse signs of aging and repair existing damage resulting in rejuvenated and visibly hydrated skin.
Why I love it~
  • Minimizes the appearance of expression lines and wrinkles before they appear
  • Help boost collagen production and increase elasticity
  • Firm, fortify, and re-densify skin while providing vital nutrition

Perfection Hyaluronic Face Cream $70

Superior skin begins with superior moisturizing. Serendipity Perfection Face Cream is crafted with hyaluronic acid, jojoba oil and apricot extract to deliver crucial moisture back into the skin, encourage growth of new collagen fibers, and help restore a visibly more vibrant, youthful appearance.
