I saw this Luella Polly gathered corset dress on the runway and I instantly fell in love. Luella girl’s like, not only the prettiest girl in class, but also the coolest, smartest, and most unpredictable girl that everybody wants to be friends with. With a fusion of berry and candy tones, Luella’s whimsical take on eighties cocktail dressing is a sweet yet sultry pick for evening. Wear it with a glossy clutch and heels for a pulled together party look with plenty of charm. *sigh*. It can be yours for $1,845 at NET-A-PORTER.COMFiled under Dresses | Comment (0)

Well, lately gilt‘s sales have been kind of lackluster. I haven’t been very excited to check it out everyday. But today I’m loving the Judith Leiber sale. Although the sale prices are still unattainable to me, I find the pieces are just so gorgeous and breathtaking that they should belong in every serious bag collector’s wardrobe.

I’m sure everybody’s looking for all kinds of ways to cut back on spending these days. Now that spring’s here, I’m eager to shed the winter blahs and winter skin. I decide that I should do more facials and stuff more often at home by myself. There’s all kinds of stuff you can try on the market, some for very little money. While I was running errands at Wal-Mart on the weekend, I picked up these masks from Montagne Jeunesse. Anybody tried these? I always saw these in the cosmetics isle but just never paid much attention to these. Just on a whim I picked them up since each was a little over $2. I thought it’d be fun even if they weren’t totally unbelievably sensational.
I tried the Watermelon and Balm Mint Foot Scrub and the Cream & Honey Skin Polisher. They turned out to be quite a surprise!
The Foot Scrub’s refreshing smell of mint and water melon hits you immediately. Packed with exfoliating beads that remove dry skin and soften rough areas. It really gave my feet a good massage. My feet are always in the worst condition after months of winter, doesn’t matter how much I moisturize them. When I washed it off, my skin was left silky and smelling yummy! I know it sounds weird. But it really did, lol.
The Skin Polisher smelled sooooo good with vanilla and sweet almond. It has tiny delicate Jojoba beads that are the perfect polisher. The Cocoa & Shea Butter transformed my skin into silk. It felt surprisingly gentle you can probably use it more than 3 times a week if you don’t use another form of exfoliation. I’d probably use it once a week since I already use a 2% BHA Lotion.
If you are a frugal beauty addict, you will love these! Next weekend I’m going to get to the rest of them, Crystal Masque, Frizz Miracle Conditioning Hair Masque, and Cucumber Purifying Peel-Off Masque. My hair especially could really use a thick hydrating mask.Filed under Skincare | Comment (0)

I try not to splurge on expensive eye creams these days. After reading lots of reviews, I got this Garnier Nutritioniste Skin Renew Anti-Puff Eye Roller ($13.49 You can get it at drugstore.com for $10.79) and it’s becoming my new favorite eye serum. It uses a unique-combination of “skin-nutrients*” and a cooling, roll-on applicator to stimulate micro-circulation. It’s perfect for the sensitive eye area. With Pro-Vitamin B5, it refreshes & hydrates the delicate eye area. I find the simple act of rolling it on makes my eyes instantly brighter and less puffy. Good circulation is so important to get rid of excessive fluid on my eyelids after a night of sleep. It’s also convenient for use on-the-go if you need a second application before a long night out .Filed under Skincare | Comment (0)
