Fashion Friday: Marchesa Crystal Frontal Necklace

I’m such a sucker for a statement necklace. I don’t tend to wear a lot of jewelry, so when I decide to wear some, I really want it to stand out. Recently, while shopping for statement necklaces, I found this amazing one: the Marchesa Crystal Frontal Necklace, which can be purchased at Nordstrom for $88. 

I love the vintage-inspired shapes and detailing. Also, I love that it’s more of a dark grey/black metal rather than a silver. It gives it a darker edge and makes it seem even older. Overall, I just really love this statement necklace! It’s dramatic generally, but it’s not so over-the-top that it will be a struggle to pair it with an outfit.

NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer

A good concealer is hard to come by, especially when you have a lot of things to cover up. From dark circles to zits to acne scars to mild redness, I have a lot that I don’t want the world to see. However, my skin can get kind of dry in the winter, so I need a concealer that is thick but not drying as so many thick concealers can be. Recently, I picked up a small size of the NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer in “Vanilla.” This small size is $13, but the full-size is $30. This product is available at Sephora and similar retailers.

I love the level of coverage that this product provides. Its a medium-coverage that can definitely be built up to a full coverage. It also seems to last all day whether or not I put a finishing powder atop it. The light texture makes it just perfect to all of my imperfections. I often find that a good undereye concealer won’t hold up against a nasty zit, but this one can cover it all. I’m super impressed, and I’ll definitely be buying the full-size when this one is used up! 

Have you used this product or do you have a different favorite concealer? Be sure to let me know in the comment section!

Jo Malone Blackberry and Bay Travel Candle

I am for sure going through a candle phase. Every night, I relax in my apartment with a different candle. I’m really big on florals and some fruit scents, so I was very excited to try the Jo Malone Blackberry & Bay Travel Candle. This can be purchased at Sephora for $35. 

I’ve been reaching for this one over and over again. It’s a great spa-night scent. Overall, the scent is actually quite subtle and fresh with notes of blackberry, bay leaves, and cedarwood. It seems to burn pretty clean, and the wax has been melting at a really steady and even rate. It claims to burn for 18 hours (it’s 2.1 ounces) and this seems about right when I look at how much wax is left versus how long I’ve burned it. 

I will say that, as much as I’m loving this candle, I’m just not sure that it’s worth the price. For $5 I could get a bigger Glade candle. For about half the price of this one, I could get an enormous candle from Bath & Body Works. While I do like this scent, I really feel like there are better, stronger scents out there that are available at a much lower price. Yes, I’ve enjoyed the luxury of owning this one and a Diptique candle (review forthcoming), but I’m not sure they are really worth the price.

Fashion Friday: Keds for Kate Spade

Obviously, glitter is one of my favorite things in the whole world. That’s why this Fashion Friday is devoted to these amazing Glitter Sneakers courtesy of Keds for Kate Spade New York. These shoes retail for $85 at Nordstrom, but they are currently on sale for $60. 

I am definitely partial to silver when buying metallic and glittery things, but I’m starting to really love rose gold too (as long as it’s very pink-heavy like these shoes!) I also love the soft pink ribbon here. These are great shoes for running errands with a little flair!

Glow Recipe Watermelon Jelly Sheet Mask

Dry skin is for sure in my future. The colder it gets, the more I’m going to need to nourish my skin to keep it from getting too dry. One of my favorite ways to do this is to use to intense masks. Recently, I had the opportunity to try the Glow Recipe Watermelon Jelly Sheet Mask. This product is $8 for a single-use mask, and it can be purchased from Sephora and similar retailers. 

I really enjoyed using this mask! It feels very gelatinous but didn’t fall apart and stayed in place when in use. Part of this was due to the fact that it came in two pieces to allow for more precise application, which I thought was a really great feature. 

After using this mask for about 30 minutes, my skin felt so moisturized and there was a definite glow. I took the mask off and rubbed the excess product into my skin. For me, it felt like a great night-time mask because my skin was so moisturized that it might have made immediate application difficult unless I washed my face (which felt like a waste since you want the product to continue absorbing post-mask). 

Overall, I thought this was a really fun mask, and I’m glad I got to try it! It seems like the perfect addition for a spa day. 

Have you used a gel-based sheet mask? Feel free to share your experience with me in the comment section!
