What I’m Loving Right Now…

By  | 

Lately I’ve come across quite a few new fabulous gems, both fashion & beauty items of which I’m really enjoying, so I thought I would share with you – items I’m currently loving.

I love reading and hearing about other peoples finds (especially when they’re things that I may not have otherwise discovered) so I thought why not share a few of the things that I’ve discovered.  From summer bling for your feet, through to glamorous new lipsticks, pampering body lotions and more, this post features all of the items I’m loving right now….

Glamdals…
Ok so these aren’t entirely a ‘new’ find as such.  You may recall, if you’ve been following me for over a year, that I wrote about Glamdals quite some time ago (you can read my earlier post here: Glamour For Your Feet).  Since first launching, and after much research, many samples and a hugely successful summer 2012 launch, Glamdals has taken off and is now stocked around New Zealand with a growing number of retailers in Australia (they are even going to be featured on Home & Away this summer – if you read my “50 Random Facts About Me” post you will know Home & Away is my guilty viewing pleasure) and now even launching in Dubai! You go Sandra Castle (Glamdals founder), I love seeing fellow kiwis succeeding in bringing their dreams to life!  Back when I first came across Glamdals I was rocking the silver pair (Heartbreaker) and this summer I’m going to be flaunting my gold pair – California Dreaming.  Check out Glamdals’ online store here: www.glamdals.com  They’re also stocked nationwide through all Annah Stretton stores.

Smashbox – Fade To Black…
I loves me a smokey eye! It’s my ‘go to’ makeup look, and recently I’ve been using the Smashbox Waterproof Shadow Liner in ‘blackest black’. This fabulous liner is part of Smashbox’s latest collection – Fade to Black, and is a velvety smooth crayon liner of which glides on so effortlessly, you barely need to touch your skin to apply it, yet the colour payoff is quite simply perfection! The liner is double ended, so on one end you have the liner, and the other a sponge-tipped-smudger. Definitely a makeup essential if you love creating a smokey eye look.  This would also be a great base for a dark glittery eye shadow.  The Smashbox shadow liner also comes in a ‘black gold’, but I’ve yet to try the gold, so if you already have, I’d love to hear about it!

Weleda Sea Buckthorn Creamy Body Wash and Replenishing Body Lotion…
Weleda recently released a range of body washes and lotions – Hydrating, Replenishing, Pampering and Regenerating.  I recently picked up the Replenishing Sea Buckthorn body wash and body lotion.  I chose the Sea Buckthorn because the oil extracted from the pulp and kernel of the sea buckthorn berries are particularly caring and regenerating for your skin.  They contain pro-vitamin A and vitamin E which protects the skin against environmental damage and the natural lipid layer of the skin is supported and protected.  They smell beautiful, fruity and fresh and the fragrance is complimented by natural essential oils from oranges, mandarins and grapefruits.  In a nutshell – delish!!  They smell good enough to eat and the subtle scent stays with you all day whilst leaving your skin feeling soft and hydrated. As soon as I’ve made my way through these beauties – I’m going to have to try the Regenerating Pomegranate range.

Elizabeth Arden – Beautiful Color Moisturizing Lipsticks…
Lipstick addicted and proud!  Yip – love my lipsticks, especially beautiful bold colours, so I’m constantly on the lookout for rich vibrant shades; and when a lipstick looks this beautiful (embossed with the Red Door logo in luxurious gold and silver packaging) with the promise of being super-hydrating, how could they not catch my eye?!  I picked up these three colours the other week (‘just pick one’ is clearly lost on me when it comes to choosing out of colours this glam) and they’re all I thought they would be and more!  I chose the colours Red Door Red, Mandarin and Electric Pink – and they’re beyond swoon-worthy.  They apply like a dream, give 100% colour payoff, look and feel velvety smooth and are ultra-conditioning, whilst being really long-wear (I’m talking hours without needing to reapply). Admittedly I was already sold on the lipsticks, however I did look into the ingredients and I can see why they wear so well and feel silky smooth on application as they contain a pretty powerful blend of skincare ingredients such as emollient butters and vitamins A, C & E (all hydrating and conditioning).

Love a bright bold lip that doesn’t dry, feather or fade?  Then you’ll adore these new Beautiful Color Moisturizing Lipsticks by Elizabeth Arden!!  My colours as shown below are, L-R: Red Door Red, Mandarin and Electric Pink…

The Aromatherapy Company – Stress Pulse Point…
I have tried many of The Aromatherapy Company’s products and I love them, but why I haven’t come across this product until now is beyond me.  Given I’m prone to headaches and am a chronic insomniac, why did nobody tell me about the ‘Stress Pulse Point’?! The 100% pure and natural essential oil blend of Peppermint & Lavender in a base of Sweet Almond Oil is said to clear anxiety and calm the mind, relieve nausea and aid digestion, and the Lavender eases headaches and balance your body & mind.  I’ve been applying it at night to aid with sleep (or lack thereof) and during the day when I feel a headache coming on, and I’m actually finding it’s really helping to ease tension.  I don’t know if it’s the peppermint easing the headache (peppermint is supposedly a natural remedy for headaches) or whether it’s the lavender scent that’s relaxing me (I tend to get headaches when I’m stressed with work or have been at the computer way too long) but either way, it definitely seems to be taking effect!  It has a nifty wee roller-ball applicator, of which you just swipe onto your pulse points, and comes in a handy purse-friendly size. Well worth a try if you have trouble unwinding.
