Comfy Chic

Comfy-Chic

Sweater weather is finally here, and cozy chic is my Fall uniform! I’m sharing my staples for easy pieces for looking chic, while being comfy and practical, whether you’re a busy mom, or heading to the office. Each item is under $100, excluding the necklace, which is such a great splurge to make a statement! The black denim is the most comfortable pair of denim I have ever owned, with high quality fabric and under $50! Slip on mules polish off any look, and fur details add all the coziness! I can’t get enough of them this season!

How Lipstick Changed My Life

 

Life has changed significantly over the past year, to say the least. When Hudson was two months old I started a personal styling job that I adored, but left little time for blogging, or anything else for that matter. Since he’s not a great sleeper, I worked through the night, and got up with him as he periodically woke up. I needed sleep, I needed less stress, I needed a change.

I started my blog because of my passion for sharing things that I love. Clothes, beauty, recipes, DIY projects.. I love sharing what works, with you! I love trying new beauty products, and when I discovered a friend introducing a lip color that can be worn up to 18+ hours, without coming off while you eat, drink, or kiss your babies, I had a very strong intuition that it was going to change my life. That, it did. I signed on as a distributor, and it has been a life changing opportunity! 

What Is LipSense?

LipSense is a lead-free, wax-free, (Non-GMO, vegan, gluten-free.. the list goes on!) lip color that is smudge, rub, food, drink and kiss-proof for up to 18+ hours. It’s used in combination with a moisturizing gloss, Glossy Gloss, and unlike any other lip product, it molecularly bonds to your lips, repairing and healing them! Before trying this magical lip product, I hadn’t worn lip color in the last year because I’m literally never not kissing Hudson’s sweet face!

One tube of LipSense is equivalent to four tubes of regular lip color, because you’re only applying it once a day! It’s applied in three light layers and then sealed with Glossy Gloss. Specialty glosses can also be layered on like Matte, Opal, and Bougainvillea, as well as additional colors layered together, for endless combinations.

This company, SeneGence, is growing in full speed! LipSense colors sell out in minutes, because they are in such high demand right now, and there is nothing even remotely like it!


How Do You Purchase?

You can visit my online shop, Facebook: Luxe Lip Lookbook, my shop Instagram @LuxeLipLookbook, or email me directly LuxeLipLookbook@gmail.com.

You initially purchase LipSense in a Collection, which includes any LipSense color, Glossy Gloss, and Oops Remover for $55 + tax. After that, individual colors are $25 + tax, specialty glosses are $20 + tax.

How Do I Join?

If you’re intuition is telling you to dive in to this amazing opportunity like mine did, I would LOVE having you on my team! I have a blast every single day, working with amazing people that give nothing but support, love and endless positivity! I would be there to mentor you along the way! SeneGence has one of the highest compensation plans in direct sales, but additional income isn’t the only possible gain, you can earn a brand new (paid for) car, vacations (like Disney World & Cabo!), and the opportunity to earn a limitless mainstream income. I would love to answer your questions! Email me at LuxeLipLookbook@gmail.com

I jumped into this business as a new mom, with a baby that didn’t nap unless I was holding him (which didn’t work with my previous job), getting very little sleep, and basically feeling like I was always a mess, and there were never enough hours in the day. Within the first couple weeks of building my business, I was able to leave my other job, which led me to gain so much (stress-free) time with my boys, and built an entire business and income during the time that my baby is asleep in my arms! 

I’m able to wake up, get ready and apply my makeup once, and I’m good for the entire day and night, as I’m running errands to going straight to dinner. As a busy mom, I feel so much more put together, and it saves me so much time! 

This company is filled with the most positive group of people, and it’s such a breath of fresh air! I love having free reign to get as creative as I want with this business, yet there’s always support!

I fell in love with LipSense, and gradually started trying other SeneGence makeup products, and skincare, until I ditched all of my go-to makeup and skincare for all SeneGence products! It’s that good! Each SeneGence product contains SenePlex Complex, a patented ingredient that promotes cellular renewal 23 times faster, renewing skin cells every 16 days, instead of every 28! I can’t wait to share these amazing products with you guys!

This season is all about texture and suede is on my radar. I became obsessed with this Moto jacket the second I spotted it. ‘Tis the season to layer, and what better way to do so than these basic v-neck tees, that A) aren’t see through B) wash well and C) are under $20! I’m loving the lace up trend, what a fun spin on a trendy tee (under $30!) for an instantly stylish look. OTK boots are universally flattering, and I couldn’t be more in love with this versatile neutral hue! Get 20% off here) One thing I live in, in cold temps is long, cozy cardigans. This are some of my favorite hues to sport during my favorite season!

Extending your Wardrobe: Maternity Style


            

What to invest in:

Maternity Denim (4 pairs)

Maternity Leggings (2-3 pairs)

Maternity Workout Leggings/Capris (1-2 pairs)

Maternity Cotton Tanks

Maternity Cotton Tees 

Fitted Cotton Maternity Dress (in a neutral hue)

What you already have:

Ponchos

Long Knit Cardigans 

Button Down Flannels

Utility Jacket

Leather Jacket

Denim Jacket 

The thought of maternity clothes made me a little nervous at the beginning of my pregnancy. I didn’t want to lose my personal style and at the same time didn’t want to invest in an entire wardrobe that I would only wear for a short period of time.

I was pleasantly surprised to find that maternity denim (this brand in particular) can be super cute, well fitted, and trendy. Invest. This is something that is so worth the investment. When I was ready to transition into maternity jeans, I tried a belly band first, and the constant adjusting was uncomfortable. You need to feel comfortable, and that can easily be achieved, while looking put together, also. I invested in a dark wash, a medium wash, a distressed light wash and distressed black denim. Maternity leggings are great for oversized sweaters and tunics.

Maternity tops are another story. I am not a fan of the cliche maternity top. The button down front and tie around your bump is not my style. I quickly found a way around that, without having to invest in an entire maternity wardrobe. Basics like cotton maternity tanks and tees are the ultimate staple. I invested in all neutral colors (blacks, whites, greys, navy) and purchased two of each color. These basics make is so easy to pair my normal non-maternity clothing into my everyday looks. I can slip on a fitted plaid button down with a maternity tank and add a scarf and ankle boots to complete the look. All of my cozy long knit cardigans fit my growing bump with a maternity tee underneath. A statement necklace and over the knee boot can dress it up. Ponchos are the ultimate must have, no matter what stage of my pregnancy they are the perfect throw on item to feel cozy and look chic.

Jackets are another great way to extend your wardrobe. From leather to denim and utility jackets in between, they can be paired with a maternity tank, tee or are great over a fitted cotton maternity dress with ankle boots.

Pairing maternity basics with non-maternity clothing you already have in your closet, let’s you stay true to your personal style, and feel most comfortable in the style your own style, while your body is constantly changing.

I did come across a few really cute maternity tops with a great fit and modern spin. I also purchased a few non-maternity items, a couple of sweaters, blouses and a winter coat,  and just sized up one from my pre-pregnancy size.
