STAY BEAUTIFUL WITH LANCOME PARIS

Fall is almost here, which means it’s time for Fall Fashion, Back, to School and time to start a new skincare routine. YAYYYYY!!!! Head on over to Macy’s to grab your gift with purchase offer from Lancome Paris. Hurry, supplies are limited and you don’t want to miss out on this. I’ve been looking for a skincare regimen to help with my discoloration and uneven skin tone but it has been hard to find a product that does NOT contain hydroquinone. I have to stay away from hydroquinone. It’s not good or gentle on my skin, especially on my face. Most skin lightening creams that treat uneven skin tone have hydroquinone as the main ingredient, so, trying to find a gentle and effective skincare product to even out my skin tone is extremely challenging. And for the record, I’m not trying to lighten my complexion. What I want to do is balance and even it out, instead of having multiple batches of different shades on my cheeks and jawline. So, I came across Lancome Paris Visionnaire Crescendo, it’s an at-home peel treatment that works overnight. There are two phases to the treatments; I’ll apply Phase 1 for 14 nights and then Phase 2 for another 14 nights, for total of 28 nights. The formula for Phase 1 contains Alpha Hydroxy Acid (AHA) from Fruit Acids and Quinoa Husk Extract. The active ingredients in Phase 2 are a combination of Salicylic Acid and Glycolic Acid. All of these ingredients are combined in a concentrated amount to make the Lancome Visionnaire Crescendo Progressive Night Peel a powerful tool in my skincare routine. I will do I full review when I complete the full 28 nights of treatment. So, back to the Lancome gift with purchase offer from Macy’s….since I had to have the Lancome Paris Visionnaire Crescendo night peel, my total gifts from Lancome are worth up to $200. In addition, to the night peel , I chose to get the following gifts with purchase:

  • Lancome Visionnaire SPF 20 Multi-Correcting Cream (To correct and perfect my skin texture)
  • Lancome Bi-Facial Face Look (Eye makeup remover, mascara, primer and gold highlighter.)
  • Lancome La Vie Est Belle fragrance trio (It smells so good. Like refined baby powder—if that even exists.)
  • Lancome Advanced Genifique Youth Activating Concentrate (Cuz’ ya’ll know I got to stay looking young.)
  • Lancome 10-day foundation shade sampler
  • A blue Lancome cosmetic bag

TABLETOP TUESDAY

HERMES GOLD DINNERWARE

Feast your eyes on Hermes lovely gold dinnerware. 

The Paris fashion runways have a tendency to set the trends for fashion, but now the same catwalks that dictate fashion are also making a bold statement for home fashion. Hermes, a French brand known for their silk scarves and celebrity-must-have Birkin handbags, released this elegant, gold, “Voyage en Ikat” dinnerware line that’s inspired by couture Ikat woven textiles. The gold Ikat-patterned plates make a bold fashion statement on the dinner table.

The beautiful, gold flatware design is from the Hermes “Attelage” collection. The gold-rimmed plates are well paired with Kim Seybert’s gold “Tassel” beads napkin ring and”Crochet Edge” linen napkin. I’m in love with the gold metallic thread edge on the napkin. It’s simple but so regal. All of this fabulous gold tabletop rest on Kravet’s “Rare Coin” fabric placemat, which if you look closely is designed with small metallic circles.

ESTILO AT COACHELLA 2015

Paris Hilton’s look at Coachella is my favorite so far. It’s so girly, fun, and daring. Leave it to Paris to wear all-white-everything to a music festival with chic white cat-eye sunglasses. I guess she has a private seating area where she will enjoy the music because there is no way she will be sitting on the grass in her white, lacy, bohemian midi skirt.
