|Above: Last weekend, my incredible husband and I celebrated our 6th wedding anniversary…a blessing indeed!|
Two trips in two weeks (full recap soon) and an insane five days of work have collectively made me glad it’s finally Friday…in turn, I am happy to share my third installment of Office Hours, a post dedicated (mainly) to beauty and (a bit of) beyond!
|Above: Well-loved shampoo.|
I rarely think to post images of my empties but wanted to share this shampoo discovery before I dispose of these thoroughly-squeezed tubes! While on the search for a sulfate-free option, I randomly picked up the L’Oreal EverStrong Shampoo and Conditioner at my local drugstore and am super pleased with the results: hydrated, silky hair with none of the chemical risks…a definitely repurchase!

I recently had the chance to try the Omorovicza BB Complexion Perfector, and, while a full review is certainly in the works, I must preface said post by stating that this formula is extremely unique and utterly magical. It has a texture, the likes of which I’ve never encountered, and the coverage, for a BB cream, is significant. Have you, dear reader, tried it yet? Thoughts? More musings from me soon!
|Above: One of my many Mujis…they have revolutionized my cosmetic storage approach!|
The amount of makeup and skincare that regularly enters my life is insane…that being said, I have invested in a cadre of Muji acrylic drawers to house products in my bedroom, bathroom and office. These simple, streamlined, transparent wonders make storage feel so luxe and I adore the fact that I can see everything before opening the drawers. To put this in perspective, I purchased ten of varying sizes and shapes and will do a full post on how I’ve arranged them soon! How do you like to organize your stash?
|Above: Style and substance…this compact is a dream team for the face.|
New product alert…the La Prairie Anti-Aging Eye and Lip Perfector features two layers of hydration for the areas of our face that need it most. Tucked into a stunning white case, the silver compact holds a silky lip salve on the lower level and illuminating, line-erasing eye balm in the upper portion…this purse-friendly innovation is simultaneously extravagant and utilitarian…comprehensive review forthcoming!

In addition to “Breast Cancer Awareness”, October is apparently also “Healthy Aging Month.” In turn, the dear folks at RoC Skincare sent over a lovely basket full of products that combat aging in a healthy manner…retinol, green tea and a filtering water bottle…what else does one need to stay young, I ask you?!
|Above: I ordered the Suqqu Frame Fix Foundation in 002 and 003.|
I finally received my Suqqu Frame Fix Cream Foundation. This illusive formula was shipped to me from Hong Kong. Full review soon….in the meanwhile: This. Foundation. Is. Insanely. Good.
|Above: A bevy of reds from the Jouer Holiday 2013 Collection.|
A couple of weeks ago, I had the chance to attend a special Jouer luncheon (recap pictures to come); this fete featured fine company, delicious cuisine, an idyllic rooftop setting and, most importantly, introduced the Holiday 2013 Collection, replete with a spectrum of reds for every skin type and preference. Not being a particularly “red” person, I am delightfully shocked by how much I adore wearing the subtle, warm-toned Sophia…full swatches of everything in the collection in the very near future.!
