outfit // + w&w and neutrogena




For the last few years I’ve been dedicated to leaving my hair long as the way I think about it at some point in life you’ll want to just chop it and leave it short for the rest of your life. That being said keeping my hair looking healthy has become a priority given all my heat styling (outfit photos, anyone?) and coloring it blonde so I was thrilled to try out Neutrogena’s new Triple Repair Hair Collection when given the opportunity.

Formulated with proteins, rich conditioners and peptides, the Triple Repair Shampoo, Conditioner, and Leave-in Conditioner work to make hair up to 3X stronger after just 1 use. My hair felt healthier immediately and I fell in love with the Triple Repair Leave-in Cream in particular.  It’s got a light texture and protects against heat styling. It also diminishes frizz and fly-aways making you ready to head out the door in no time. Get more info on Neutrogena Triple Repair here and you’ll be on your way to #strongerhair, too!

In other news, this Everlane sweatshirt is everything. $30 (!) and so, so comfy.

Outfit: Everlane sweatshirt (c/o), Zara skort (old, but similar here and here), Rag & Bone Newbury boots, Marc by Marc Jacobs bag, BaubleBar necklace, ToyWatch, Giles & Brother bracelet

{recent} beauty favorites

Screen Shot 2014-02-10 at 8.06.34 PM

It’s been a while since my last Recent Beauty Favorites so sharing a few new favorites that I’ve been using on the reg. Hope you’re having a great week thus far!

  1. Avene Akerat Smoothing Exfoliating Cream: If your skin is super thirsty like mine around this time of year, this is the body moisturizer you need. It leaves skin feeling 100% hydrated without any greasy feeling. I rarely use body lotion because I never found one that left my skin feeling normal vs. slick. This  one is a inner in my book.
  2. It Cosmetics Hello Lashes 5-in-1 Mascara: I certainly have my favorite mascaras that are always in my rotation but this one has now been added to that circuit. There’s something about the applicator wand that makes it super easy to achieve stellar-looking lashes. It visibly increases volume and length after just one coat. I layer it up until every lash has been coated three times.
  3. Rusk DeepShine Color Smooth Conditioner: This is one of the best (and most budget friendly) conditioners I’ve used and loved in some time. I was sent it as part of the StyleList Beauty Awards and it came out on top for me in the conditioner category. It preserves color and makes hair extra soft. I pair it with this shampoo and I’ve been loving how the combo makes my hair look & feel.
  4. Lancome Artliner 24H: I’ll be the first to admit that I’m pretty much the worst when it comes to applying liquid eyeliner (I blame my shaky hands) but this new Lancome liner made it much easier. (I also use a credit card to help achieve a more winged look). This liner doesn’t budge and leaves a sort of vinyl-looking finish so it’s dramatic but not too over the top. Perfect for a night out on the town.
