My bracelet from JewelMint was delivered today.  I love it.  If you haven’t heard of JewelMint, it is an online jewelry boutique created by Kate Bosworth and Cher Coulter.  You can sign up here.  When you set up your account you are asked a few questions to help pinpoint your own personal style.  Each month items that fit your style profile are added to your showroom (you can also view all of the items if you want).  The best part is each item is only $29.99 plus it ships for FREE

I ordered the Mumbai bracelet.  It was packaged in a very nice black velvet bag and also contained a card showing the item description.  The bracelet quality is really nice.  It’s made from oxidized hammered silver discs.  I can’t wait to wear it tomorrow. 

JewelMint gets my vote and I will be back to order more. 

 Burt's Bees Soap Bark & Chamomile Deep Cleansing Crème 6 Oz 
1. Burt’s Bees Soap Bark & Chamomile Deep Cleansing Crème – I absolutely LOVE this cleansing creme.  It goes on smooth and creamy and makes your skin feel cool and tingly, not to mention it smells wonderful.  But best of all it leaves my skin smooth and clean without feeling dried out.  
CeraVe Moisturizing Lotion 12 fl oz (355 ml)
2. CeraVe Moisturizing Lotion – This moisturizing lotion came upon a recommendation from my dermatologist.  At the time I was fighting an awful case of peri-oral dermatitis (which was caused by a fluoride sensitivity of all things).  All of the creams and lotions to clear up the issue caused my face to become so dry it hurt and was peeling.  She said that this lotion is light enough to use daily and wouldn’t cause any irritation to the skin.  I tried it and fell in love.  It goes on without feeling greasy and lasts all day.  I sometimes wear it alone with a little powder on top or I can even wear it under my foundation without my face looking oily.   
Neutrogena Healthy Skin Liquid Makeup, Classic Ivory 10, 1 Ounce

3. Neutrogena Healthy Skin Liquid Makeup – I switched to this foundation at the request of my dermatologist as well.  I needed something that was lightweight but with all day coverage that wouldn’t irritate my skin.  This makeup goes on smooth and actually helps to improve the condition of my skin while I wear it.
 

Infusium 23 Colourologie, Shampoo 16 fl oz (473 ml)
4. Infusium 23 Colourologie, Shampoo & Conditioner – I’ve used Infusium for years now.  I don’t really remember how I found it, but it works so I’m sticking with it.  They offer shampoo, conditioner and a leave in treatment.  I’m currently using the Colourologie to help protect my color, but I have also used the moisturizing and anti-frizz.  I love them all.  I have fine hair that can get weighed down easily but I don’t have this problem with Infusium.  Here’s a hint: A dab of the leave in conditioner worked through your hair helps to tame fly aways all day. 
Rimmel Lasting Finish Nail Polish Steel Grey, (Pack of 3)
5. Rimmel Lasting Finish Nail Polish Steel Grey –  I can’t remember a time that I have ever been so in love with a nail polish.  Rimmel’s Steel Grey polish is perfect for the fall.  I’ve had so many compliments on it.  The color goes great with black as well as brown.  This is the first time that I’ve used Rimmel polish, but I have to say I like it.  It covers well in two coats and after a hard drying top-coat, I’ve had no issues with chipping.  I’ve worn it for up to 10 days and it still looked good.  
Have you tried any of these?  What are your favorite beauty items?
The best part about my favorite beauty items is that they are all relatively cheap and easy to find.  I pick mine up at the local Walgreens or CVS. 
       

I’ve been doing some “window” shopping online this morning.  I’m looking for a new Little Black Dress.  I need to be able to dress it up or down with accessories.  Here’s what I have found (clicking on the pictures will take you to the store):

from J. Crew
My favorite so far has to be this one.  It’s shorter than I would usually go for, but maybe something different would be good.  I’ve seen alot of black and gold paired together this season.  I really like these accessories:

Now, I’m on to look at shoes.  I could be stuck doing this for awhile. 🙂
