Laura Mercier Tinted Moisturizer

I don't think I can say enough good things about this product. I LOVE LOVE LOVE the light weight coverage it gives me, and the ability to just swipe it on and be good to go is just amazing.
(Obviously minus mascara, under eye concealer and the occasional concealer for any zits. EK!)

During the day, I just touch up with powder to absorb any excess oil. HIGHLY recommend this. I usually stock up when Sephora is having a 20% off sale because its a little pricey, but so worth it in my opinion.

Laura Mercier Tinted Moisturizer is a sheer, lightweight moisturizer with a hint of color you can use IN PLACE of foundation for a natural finish and a healthy glow.

Jcrew heart sweater love

Lusting this Jcrew sweater. yes, still........
I ask the sales people every time I go into Jcrew if anyone has returned one!
Here it is nicely styled by Krystal at This Time Tomorrow.

Me at work.

Someone found this photo of me and my press crew on twitter and sent it to me. This is what I do! "Gatekeeper" for the Press on Capitol Hill. Specifically, Media Logistics.  I love my job. I'm in the middle of the photo awaiting word to send the press into an event with Speaker Boehner. Just thought I'd share! :o)

Orofluido Hair Elixir/Oil

OROFLUIDO - Beauty Elixir 3.38ozOrofluido Shine Spray

Orofluido - Beauty Elixir $30.00 aprox

This hair treatment has a blend of THREE nourishing essential oils (argan, linseed, cyperus)

I DIE. This stuff not only smells AMAZING, but REALLY WORKS. It leaves your hair smooth, shiny, silky, conditioned and healthy feeling! And just a drop of it made my hair super soft and shiny. AND it cuts down my blow-drying time by about 20%. I'm officially obsessed.

I do think this is way better than Morrocan Oil. I know everyone is loving Moroccan oil BUT this oil has the same oil as the Moroccan oil (Argan oil) has in it, but this has the advantage of being organic and having two other oils including in it. No chemicals, just nature. The other two oils included are Linseed oil and Cyperus oil

I feel like you can put too much Morrocan oil in your hair, it sometimes makes your hair too oily. But with this stuff, my hair soaks it up and so far I haven't put in too much! (aprox a quarter size drop) Which leads me to believe its better than Morrocan Oil because its soaking into my hair rather than sitting on top of the hair.

The 3 oils in this product and what they do:

Cyperus Oil from Egypt softens hair and adds  shine.
Linseed Oil from the Mediterranean seals in hair moisture and protects from humidity, smooths hair follicles and glosses the hair.
Argan Oil from Morocco improves the hair.

If you don't trust me, google the reviews for it and see for yourself! :o)

Fresh Sugar Lip Balms

I am a HUGE fan of my new discovery. I LOVE these Fresh Sugar Lip balms. (It's the perfect halfway point between a gel and waxy stick, it smells delicious, and it leaves lips SUPER soft.)

Now, Fresh has come out with Sugar Passion Tinted Lip Treatment, which has a sheer reddish tint,which is PERFECT for people like me who don't want to wear lipstick,(Lipstick phobia) but want to look polished and put together at the office. I Highly recommend these balms!

Camera Love.

I work with Photographers on a daily basis. I really do love my job, and I Love my camera. I've had it or about 2 years now and have nothing but good things to say about it. I'm no professional by any means, I am simply around professional photographers on a daily basis(the creme de la creme) I know what a quality photo looks like. Hence why I bought this camera.
People are always complimenting on how clear the shots come out with it. I have the camera below (Canon G 10)


I told my little sister that a good gift for me for Christmas would be the camera case below! Cute eh? and for only $15 bucks.! Hm, need to look into the specs though and make sure its big enough or my camera. It would surely fit a little point and shoot!

If you're into photography, has some cute things.

Loving these prints too:

or these little shot glasses that look like lenses!
