monday must haves: my beauty shelf

February 16, 2015

i’ve been really into beauty products lately… maybe its because i am in my 30s and realized i forgot to take care of my skin in my twenties. argh. if i could tell my 25 year old self anything it would be EXFOLIATE and MOISTURIZE. not sure i can make up for it now, but i am trying! i wish my beauty shelf was as perfectly organized as the above, but i decided to sketch up my favorite items in my beauty repertoire.

desk x Lady & Prince
in the office we talk a lot about how we set up our desks… from accessories, to plants to pinning up inspiration. these are some of my favorite desk accessories… other than when i bring rider to work (he is so small he technically counts as an accessory!).

1. tata harper’s volumizing lip & cheek tint 2. kate spade business card holder 3. simply spotless fabric cleaner (for the accidental lunch mishap!) 4. a chic coaster or two 5. frends headphones 6. porcelain typography tray 7. calypso eau de toilette (for the work to dinner date spritz!) 8. poppin white desk set 9. the sill table top plants 10. re-visit iphone case (ivanka gave this to me for my birthday and its hands down the coolest and chicest case–obsessed!) 11. spray and screen cleaner in one!

a monday #mothersday must have: tata harper

May 6, 2014

ok, so that quote is totally true, but let’s be honest… good beauty products are pretty helpful too. i really wish i had listened to my mom when i was younger… i remember she always wore moisturizer and said it was so important… i actually think it was vaseline, but still. i don’t think i took her advice to heart till my late twenties when i realized i didn’t look the same as i did at 19! i am much better now about my beauty regimen and when i find new products that i love i become pretty religious about them. my two must haves from tata harper are: the regenerating cleanser and the resurfacing mask. the cleanser is amazing–i don’t normally like scrubs on my face because they are more cumbersome, but this cleanser is gentle with small micro sized beads and makes my skin feel clean and polished. i love the resurfacing mask as well, its my new go-to for dull winter skin. it works like a traditional peel and leaves your face feeling fresh and vibrant. if you are looking for some new beauty products be sure to check out tata harper. also, as a special treat, enjoy 15% off your order with the code PURELOVE now through 5/11/14

i feel so honored because the ladies at tata featured me alongside some other super chic mamas on their blog this week… be sure to visit their blog to read the interview! also, definitely follow along these other inspiring moms– latham from mama glow, julia from romy and the bunnies and rachel from cricket’s circle! xx!
