Urban Decay Lip Junkie Gloss

I am always on the search for a new lipgloss- I must have hundreds- but when I came across this fabulous lip gloss by Urban Decay, I had to share with you all: Introducing the Urban Decay Lip Junkie Lipgloss! 
This decadent lip gloss has a fabulously delicious vanilla-mint flavor that I adore. And unlike lots of other glosses, Lip Junkie allows you to get all that shine without the sticky hangover. If you want a super-shiny gloss, but can't stand the sticky texture, then Lip Junkie is definitely for you.  The soft and smooth texture stays put much longer than other glosses.
The key ingredient, Maxi-Lip™, plumps the appearance of lips an average of 40% when used daily for a month. (Lip Junkie uses non-irritant plumpers, unlike other glosses that use stinging ingredients to inflame your lips.) The Maxi-Lip actually helps your lips become better defined, super-hydrated, and full.
My go-to shade for this gloss is Midnight Cowboy- a fabulous sheer sparkly nude that is beyond amazing over some of my favorite lipsticks.
What do you think? Do you love a glossy pout? What is your favorite lip gloss? Let me know in a comment on this post!

You can purchase the Urban Decay Lip Junkie Lipgloss at Sephora.
Retail Price: $19

Louis Vuitton Neverfull Obsession

I can never get enough of the Neverfull bag by Louis Vuitton. It is the most perfect bag for anything and everything, comes in an array of colors and special edition prints, and best of all - it is super durable and perfect for every day wear.
I got my first Neverfull (LV classic print, MM size) about 5 years ago now. It immediately became one of my favorites and my go-to daily bag. I loved it so much that about a year later I purchased another! This time the Damier print in GM size. This bag, although a bit too large at times I will admit, has also become a staple. It fits SO much inside, and I love the contrast of the red interior, such a fun pop of color.
Next, because my love affair just couldn't end, last year I had a custom LV made for me- Mon Mono. This bag Is actually one of my favorite purses in my entire collection, I love that it was custom made for me and that no one else has one! The amazing blue stripe, monogram and stunning interior really make this bag stand out. Check out my post on Mon Mono here: Fab-YOU-lous: Mon Monogram Louis Vuitton Neverfull
I just purchased my fourth Neverfull last weekend, and of course, I continue to be obsessed. This is a print that I have wanted for quote some time- the Damier Azur. I purchased it in the MM size, which is what I've found to be the most practical and best size for day to day use.
The one deterrent for me, which is why I waited so long to buy it, It that the bag is super white both inside and out so I am being crazy careful because I don't want it to get dirty!! I know that the leather canvas is super durable on all of my other LV bags, so here's hoping that my new baby stays white!
What can I say- I love myself a LV Neverfull! Always have and always will! Do any of you fashionistas have Neverfulls? Which color and size? Let me know in a comment on this post!

Urban Decay Naked 2 Palette

The MVP of my makeup collection had to be the Urban Decay Naked palette - packed with super wearable shades, this palette is always my go-to for any occasion. Being a girl who adores makeup, I have accumulated and tested countless shadows over the years, and although NARS and TooFaced palettes come in and out of my life, I always go back to my Naked palette- trusted and true!
Naturally, after quite some time of wearing the Naked palette shades, I was ready for a change- I had heard of the Naked 2 palette but didn't think I needed it, thought it was too similar blah blah... Well I finally broke down and caved in- introducing the Naked 2 palette!!! My dreams have come true with the beyond amazing little sister to the original Naked palette! Boy am I LOVING this new palette- I am already so so obsessed!
Here is the low down on the uber fashionable and popular Naked 2 palette:  This palette features a dozen pigment-rich taupe and gray-beige neutrals, plus five exclusive, new shades. This set contains 12 Eyeshadows in the following shades:
Foxy (cream bisque with matte finish), Half Baked (golden-bronze with shimmering finish), Booty Call (shimmering cork), Chopper (copper shimmer with silver microglitter)

Tease (creamy pale brown with matte finish), Snake Bite (dark bronze shimmer with metallic base), Suspect (pale golden beige with shimmering finish), Pistol (light gray-brown with shimmering finish)

Verve (oyster with shimmering finish), YDK (cool bronze shimmer with metallic base), Busted (deep brown with shimmering finish), Blackout (blackest black with matte finish)

The palette also includes a travel-size Lip Junkie Lipgloss in Naked and a double-ended, cruelty-free Good Karma Shadow/Crease Brush.
Urban Decay's packaging takes on a modern feel in Naked 2 with an art-school-inspired tin case and a hinged lid. Compare Naked2 with first Naked palette—packaged in warm, rich brown velvet with gold foil lettering—and you won't be able to resist owning both. Sorry Naked, you will always remain in my heart, but I have officially started my love affair with Naked 2!

Available for purchase at Sephora
Retail price: $50

C Wonder- My Favorite Preppy Paradise

Attention prepsters- I have found the holy grail of prep! Introducing C Wonder- I am in love! I have been on C Wonder's email list for quite some time, but had not purchased anything yet. While in the Hamptons this past weekend I stumbled upon the bright and fun C Wonder store- basically a candy store for preppy chic fashionistas. I found way too many things that I loved- and of course bought up lots of the store, including monogrammed sweaters, shoes, accessories, jewelry, and more. You'll see plenty of posts with my goodies in the coming few weeks!
Now on to one of my favorite summer prep purchases of this past weekend, this C Wonder golden anchor necklace! How fabulous is this? And you can tell it is made really well, it looks so expensive, preppy and summery! I ave already worn it a few times and have received tons of compliments. This stunning necklace is so perfect to pair with anything from a simple black dress to a fab Lilly frock.
You can purchase this anchor necklace at C Wonder (in stores)

Hair 101: Beauty Protector Protect & Detangler

My hair is curly, pretty thick, and super long, which inevitably means I need a strong detangler to tame those knots. I received a sample of the Beauty Protector Protect & Detangler spray in my Birchbox and I loved it so much I had to purchase a full size of the product.
The best news is that Beauty Protector’s leave-in mist is not only a detangler- this product is about as versatile as they come. It conditions, shields from heat and sun damage, and–of course–detangles. This paraben- and sulfate-free detangler seals the cuticles (the microscopic scales that compose the outermost layer of each strand of hair). It also smooths and moisturizes, thereby minimizing frizz, while safeguarding color and adding shine. Lastly, it provides protection against UV rays and heat. Happily, it accomplishes all this through a weightless, non-greasy formula that leaves behind an airy floral scent.
How to use: Shampoo, condition, and towel dry hair. Hold the Protect & Detangle bottle four to six inches away from your scalp, and spray a few times. Comb through hair to ensure that the product is evenly diffused, and style as desired.

You can purchase this product at Birchbox.
Retail price: $21.95

Leila is made if all Italian leather and materials, adding to its luxe feel and design.

Bobbi Brown Foundation Stick

As promised here is another amazing Bobbi Brown product that is sure to become a summer staple. Meet Bobbi's foundation stick! This innovative Foundation Stick is designed for portability and adjustable coverage- it is easy to apply and blend all over the face or just where you need it.
How do I use it? Keep skin nude or use a tinted moisturizer. Instead of a full face of foundation, spot-apply the stick foundation just where skin is red or uneven.
Your skin will be feeling so much better without a liquid foundation over the summer months, and Bobbi Brown's foundation stick will give you the coverage, lasting power, and lightness that you crave in this hot weather.
With a bunch of different colors to choose from you will definitely be able to find your perfect match- I purchased "sand" and it looks great!
You can purchase this product on the Bobbi Brown website, Sephora, or at department stores (Nordstrom, etc.)  Retail Price: $42
