Statement Necklaces

As you probably know, I have a weakness for a good statement necklace. I’ve been sporting a now sold out Anthropologie piece with practically everything this season. When it comes to chic jewelry, J.Crew always delivers, so naturally the latest statement necklace selection to hit their Factory store sale made me more than a little giddy. These fab finds are a major steal and a great foundation to any summer wardrobe–with an additional 30% off they’re hard to resist! [Use code: SALE30]

The Mess-Free Manicure

Key to a Mess-Free Manicure I love sporting deep hues during the Winter months (right now I’m loving navy.) Unfortunately, they aren’t the easiest to apply. This Pinterest found beauty tip is key for a fool-proof manicure in just minutes.

  1. Using a Q-tip, apply Aquaphor (a must-have multifunctional healing ointment) around each nail, making sure not to get the lotion on your actual nail
  2. Apply base coat, polish and top coat (letting each coat dry in between)
  3. Once dry, rub in the Aquaphor onto cuticles

Key to a Mess-Free Manicure The end result: A mess-free manicure (no need to spend time on touch-ups!)

Julep Maven: November

This month’s pick for the Julep Maven program is American Beauty. The set came with colors Stefani and Lynn, and an essential cuticle oil.

 A fun surprise was the nail glitter pots included in the set. How cute is this?

I decided to try this peachy pink pair first.

One of the perks of being a maven is discounted products. I also snagged this goodies. Harley, O’Canada, and a base coat.

Have you joined Julep Maven yet? What colors are your loving?
