FutureDew is here

When people ask me about Glossier, my response is usually simple. I describe the person. The Glossier girl or guy (person) is beautiful, comfortable in their own skin, natural, clean, and dewy!

You know that feeling just after getting a facial? Just put on your skincare before makeup? Just got out of the shower? And your skin looks radiant and dewy? That’s it. Glossier has bottled that feeling. Glossier skin in a bottle.

Glossier has given us that feeling to take with us! Usually that post facial glow or post skincare moisture fades a few minutes after you leave the room. This dew will bring you into the future. It’s a silky oil serum hybrid that pumps out of the bottle with a glow and goes on clear.

* A new kind of oil-serum that gives you an instant dewy glow that lasts

Things I’m Into – End of Summer and Fall 2019

I’ve been “into” a variety of new and exciting things this summer and I’m overly excited to head into the Fall with a fresh perspective! Current trends that can easily transition into the cooler months.

Animal Print

Wearing my tropic of c swimsuit in “the c” in shade “mama africa.” Vivienne is wearing her Spearmint Love Long Sleeve Skirted Bodysuit in Leopard. This trend will be here all winter – love that its back!

Everlane Crew Neck Cashmere Sweater

High quality basics without the traditional retail markup. I meannnnn – I own this sweater in almost every color they produce. $100 for cashmere? You can’t beat that! Highly recommend, dearly love. Just got the color Loden (pictured). Shop using my link.

Hanes Comfort Soft Boys T Shirts

In my Boys’ Tee

Cheap white tees for boys that fit like a baby tee on a woman. I buy size Boys Large from Amazon. Easy white t-shirt that looks great with a pair of jeans or with a skirt, cutoff shorts, literally anything.

My Lack of Color Australia hats were a great addition to this summer – wore them everywhere I went!

Glossier Berry Balm Dot Com

I’ve been wearing Berry flavor since launch in early August. *Gifted. I love it though – favorite shade & flavor lately and I’m obsessed with the slight color it provides.

Solly Baby Wrap

Wine tasting while baby carrying at Laurel Lake Vineyard in Laurel, NY

One of my favorite baby gifts I’ve received to date. Solly Baby Wrap has been the perfect accessory all summer long! Solly comes in many beautiful colors – this shade was perfect for me during summer months. Vivi always felt comfortable and secure, plus the fabric is really breathable!

Poolside Bags

Summer Staples

All summer long. Wore this Beach Bling Ice Bucket bag from Poolside Bags with a bandana from LoveShackFancy tied around the handle for an added touch. Wore with dresses and White Canvas Keds all summer long. Look for new Poolside Bags styles launching for fall / winter.

Glossier Review

So I’m a skincare junkie. I’m also a shopping addict. I have OCD — (likely). When I see something I want and it’s easily attainable – it automatically becomes a MUST HAVE.

Since Into the Gloss blog founder Emily Weiss launched Glossier – I knew it had to be amazing and I knew I needed it immediately. Glossier’s website says it best:

“How many products do you own, and how many do you actually use? We are creating a highly edited collection of modern staples reflecting how you get ready every day, starting with the most important thing—a perfectly primed canvas (your skin!)—and working our way up.”

“Our formulas are designed to live with you, not on you, and enhance what you already have. They are meant to be touched, smooshed, traveled with, cherished, and shared until their packages are crinkly and dirty and can literally give no more.”

I purchased the starter kit and the packaging it arrives in is super cute / it also comes with stickers which I LOVE. I think this is a great starter pack for people who use a lot of products and are fed up with it. Kind of lightens your load in a sense…

My Review’s Below…

Balm Dot Com: Skin salve. This is nice. It’s high high high in the running against Lucas Papaw Ointment which I use regularly. It can be used basically anywhere. GREAT for lips! Highly recommend if you have chapped lips and you are constantly in the lip balm / chapstick phenomena of constantly reapplying and you kind of think it doesn’t help you but makes you use it more. You can put it on dry cuticles. Dry elbows/knees/palms. Anywhere that needs a little extra lovin’!
Priming Moisturizer: Warning! Comes out of tube, very quickly. Positive: the tubing is very squeezable – does that make sense?! It’s like – do you know how it’s sometimes difficult to get the last of a product out of it’s tube? Yeah, well – this solves that problem. The packaging is super easy to get the cream out of. It’s a light-ish cream and its unscented which I love. It’s build-able – I’m not exactly sure what that means. It’s used as a nice makeup primer and I like it for that as well. It’s a great combination of your moisturizer and your primer. Put on after cleansing and before makeup. Recommend.
Perfecting Skin Tint: Are you a makeup girl or a non-makeup girl? If your answer is non-makeup girl, this is FOR YOU!!! It is extremely thin coverage. I don’t even want to say coverage because it does not cover you. It makes you feel as if you’re wearing nothing! Which is MAJOR. It’s definitely not for blemish coverage. HOWEVER, if you mix some of this in to your typical foundation, it will thin it out and give you a nice, dewy, clean finish. I got the medium color – which I think most people will fall in – unless you’re extremely pale or have much darker pigmentation. Highly suggest mixing it in with your daily foundation or BB/CC cream if you use one. Recommend if you have nice skin and if you just want to even out skin tone and wear something. Do not recommend for trying to cover up much of anything. Great mixer though for sure. 😉
Soothing Face Mist: A major mist fan, I always carry a mist with me, I always keep a mist in/on my desk at work, always on my vanity at home, and one in my carry-all travel bag. Basically, I live the nomadic life – at my apartment in Brooklyn, on Long Island at my best friends’ homes, and I travel a lot on the weekends. I’ve been enjoying the rosewater mist they make. Look for a future blog about rosewater mists because they’ve been a natural obsession of mine. Also Kim Kardashian West is obsessed with rosewater too, so OBV.
