Sale Season: Tory Burch Lowell Ballet Flats

Sale season has begun, and the only shoes on my list this year are flats. Yes, flats. I'm on my feet all day at work, running up and down hallways and stairs. My heels and sandals only come out on the weekend, so I figured now would be a good time to add some more work-appropriate shoes to my wardrobe. 

These Tory Burch ballet flats were my first sale score. My black Reva flats bit the dust last year, so I needed a new casual black flat. I bought these even though many of the comments made them seem pretty ill-fitting. These shoes are actually extremely soft and comfortable. They did take a day or two to break in, but they didn't hurt my feet at all. I'm glad I trusted my instincts and bought them before my size sold out!

Have a great week!

Besame Cosmetic Brand

I'm a sucker for vintage packaging so, when I came across Besame cosmetics a while ago, I knew I had to have it. I've been searching for a deep red lipstick, and the 1930 Noir red lippie fulfilled that need. I'm in love with subtle blush tones, so the apricot cream blush works well with my tan complexion and it's not too greasy. The unique mascara wand makes application very easy, especially on the lower lash line. The violet brightening face power helped brighten up my under eye area as well and it smells nice. What makeup brands have you tried because of the unique packaging?

Moroccan Oil

I recently dyed my hair blonde because I was bored with my look and wanted to try something new. The person who normally does my hair relocated to Atlanta a while ago so, instead of traveling to her, I decided to find someone new to color my hair. The new hair stylist severely over-processed my hair (insert sad, crying face here)! My hair was drier than it has ever been, and the color wasn't quite what I envisioned. So, I waited a while and eventually went to Natalia's colorist to dye my hair back to it's normal color and repair the damage. 

He introduced me to Moroccan Oil, and I will be forever grateful. These products restored moisture to my hair and finally made it soft and silky again. The oils aren't heavy (so they don't weigh your hair down), and they smell amazing. I must warn you though - they are costly - but, if your hair is dry and beat down by heat or chemical damage, they are worth the money.

I wish I knew about these products sooner...
