  1. Cle de Peau Concealer SPF25  Rated one of the best concealers, it’s a must  have in your make-up bag. I wear the beige color.
  2. Naked Princess Lip Gloss Set  I stumbled upon this brand of lip gloss years ago at the Four Season’s Spa. I have been using them ever since.
  3.  Naked 2 Palette Urban Decay I love the Urban Decay palettes because they have so many colors. Once palette can create many different looks.

  5. Dior Diorshow Iconic Overcurl Mascara When I don’t feel like wearing a lot of make-up all I wear is foundation and 264 blue Christian Dior mascara. The blue gives your eye a pop of color. The brown and black are great as well.

@ Zara Right Now

Zara.jpg

I had a couple hours to burn at Century City so I decided to take on Zara. It can be overwhelming but it was worthwhile in the end. Here’s what I found.

  1. White Embroidered Top I like this feminine top mixed with a masculine bottom like army pants or ripped jeans.
  2. Authentic Denim Mini Skirt As the weather warms up we need an alternative to jeans and this fits the bill.
  3. Short Ruffled Dress This is an off the shoulder organic cotton dress. The fabric is light weight which is great for those warm summer days.
  4. Blue Embroidered Top This Zara top has the Vita Kin look for a lot less. It runs big so make sure to size down. I bought the x-small.
  5. Z1975 Jeans with Side Stripes I tired these on and was surprised at how well they fit. They are slim fitting, have stripe detailing, and a frayed hem.
  6. Sweater with Crochet Sleeves This is a 100% cotton crochet top. It runs small so size up I got the large.
  7. Leather Crossover Sandal These have the Hermes & YSL feel but for a lot less.

  7. Jennifer Meyer Turquoise Flower Diamond Stud Earrings  I love love love turquoise!!!

Desert Bound

AndazScottsdale

Going with the Coachella desert theme I thought I would share my experience at the new Andaz property in Scottsdale Arizona. I am a big fan of the Maui Andaz, and was excited to check out their new desert property.  The grounds, rooms, and main areas are beautifully decorated with a modern and clean feel. The rooms are little bungalows with your own private patio. The restaurant has an open kitchen serving clean and fresh food. I took full advantage of the beautiful spa and gym. They have a DJ at the main pool on the weekends so if that’s not your speed you can relax at the two other pools. The Andaz has done an excellent job creating a boutique hotel as an alternative to the other large resorts in the area.
