Beard maintenance is a thing now, you guys. I was recently made aware that the coolest men are conditioning their facial hair with special made-for-beard products. Because I aim to be cool, I am immediately going to purchased some Wild Man beard conditioner for My guy. I want him to smells like he was hit in the face by a lumberjack with an almond-tainted rosemary bush. There’s nothing sexier than a man who smells like a spa!

I ate stuffing and mashed potatoes four days in a row. Hence, I am the opposite of sexy, which I think is frumpy right? I long for water and cardio.

I’m still comatose from the long Thanksgiving weekend, so feast your eyes on these lovely fall photos that have me craving a cozy photo shoot with my man.






Hope everyone had a lovely Thanksgiving!

Fine Wine.

Yes, yes I love my wine. However this post isn’t a guzzle my glass social alcoholic kinda post, it’s a I’m a shopaholic kinda post that supports my thirst for wine colored denim, Bordeaux glazed nails, Merlot lips and deep ruby booties.

I need to work overtime to nourish my wine fixation (both).

You can assume jewel tones will be my Fall uniform. What’s going to be your go-to chilly weather style?








I’m feelin the red wine in so many ways… I think it’s those burgundy booties in the last photo that are really speaking to me.

That extra half inch….

Contrary to popular opinion, my favorite phrase is not “Happy Hour”. Nor is it “Shoe Sale at Holt’s!”. Or even, “Anybody want to go shopping?”  No, my friends. My very favorite phrase, the sentence that makes me start dancing on the spot for joy is: “Friday!!”.

This Friday means two things, a) The count down for cocktail time has started (I haven’t sipped wine for an entire week) and b) I’m only 8 hours away from being 4 inches shorter. The heels are checking out at exactly 5pm and I’ll be in flats most of the weekend, unless of course I head down to some TIFF wrap up parties –  in that case for a few hours I’ll need that extra half-inch.

I have no real agenda for the weekend, I’m simply going to wing it. Occasionally I like it that way. However, if I plan to go cocktailing with the stars I will need to plan my outfit….

What would I wear…


A little chevron party dress…

The perfect YSL shade on my lips…

I’ll have to wear a fabulous pair of heels…

and draw on flawless wing tips….

And maybe mess my bun up a little…

Cheers to the freaking weekend…

Happy Friday!

Cheap Thrills

I’m known to have an expensive palate, maybe it’s the power to afford things that cost more or maybe I’m just pompous?  Like I’ve told you in previous posts, beauty products are a vice and although trying new beauty brands can be fun, its expensive. Lately I’ve arrived at few methods that have seriously cut my beauty budget in half, saving some bucks so I can capitalize that money elsewhere –  Home decor? shoes? Micheal Kors oversized tortoise watch?

I’ve found a few cheap thrills that have made their way into my vanity and will dwell top shelf until I make my millions and only lather my face with Creme de la Mar..(if you don’t know what this is I suggest you do your research)

Here are my recommendations:









1. Olay Skin Smoothing Wash– removes deep down dirty stuff from your pores, exfoliates and smooths out skin texture in just a few uses, seriously amazing stuff.

2. C.O & Bigelow My Favorite Lip Balm – glorious everyday Lip Balm avec nourishing shea butter, sweet almond oil and wheat germ to condition and soothe lips in need of care. Easy to wear under or over lip color. Great everyday balm.

3. Cover Girl Trueblend Mineral Blush – I know we all love Nars orgasm, yet this gives you the same tone and it is a fraction of the price… and being mineral based it’s better for your skin.

4. Nivea Goodbye Cellulite – bite into a few apples a day, drink your H2O and lather on this miracle worker – it’s the tri – fecta for cellulite.  The L-Carnitine visibly reduces the appearance of unwanted dimples. And being a winner for the best cellulite treatment at the Elle Grand Prix Beauty awards means something!

5. Wella Care and Styling Brilliance Shampoo – this is gold for my tresses. First, the shampoo has the best scent of any shampoo I’ve tested in years. It left my bathroom and hair smelling divine all day. More importantly, my hair was brilliant and full of body. You can buy this at your local Wella Professional Salon.

So there you have it, my picks under $20 that are super amazing products and have recieved amazing beauty reviews from real users, like moi!

What are some of your beauty budget favs?
