Signature Scents

First of all, I hope you all had a lovely Christmas with your friends and families and I hope Santa gave you all exactly want you wanted and more! 
Now on to today's blog post. I feel that every woman has/needs her own signature scent(s) and I of course have 4 that I absolutely adore. There is nothing like spraying on some Chanel, Juicy Couture, and Estee Lauder. I love the these scents so much and I feel like they are such classic scents that I will be wearing for years. Chanel No.5 is the first perfume that I ever owned (thanks mommy!) and I feel that is the one that will be in my collection always. Then the next three became my other other signature scents that of course that will be in my collection for years as well.

What are some perfumes that you all love?

Living in Leather

I have practically been living in my new leather pants. I purchased them for my trip to Charleston a few weekends back and obsessed is an understatement. It took me a while to find a pair that I love, but as soon as I tried on these from Express I knew I had to purchase them. They are definitely going to be a staple in my wardrobe.

Pink Tribal

First of all I want to apologize for how my hair looks. It was really windy and I can't help how it looks, but I do love this outfit and I had to share it with you. Pink of course is my favorite color and tribal print has been growing on me. This cardigan is so soft and not too lightweight and not too heavy. It was perfect for a windy day in Charleston.

How to Clean Your Makeup Brushes

Over time I have learned different ways to clean my makeup brushes, but I just found a wonderful way with a household product to do so. 
Olive oil is a great way to clean makeup brushes. I never imagined it would work as well as it does. Not only does it clean the brushes, but it also conditions the bristles of the brushes. You can completely submerge the brushes into the olive oil and from that point you can rub them against a sponge and you will see pieces of makeup start to fall off. At the end just lay them on a towel flat to dry and you will be delighted with the end result.

Modern Design Inc. Review

Recently, Modern Design Inc reached out to me and I was thrilled to work with them. Modern Design Inc. is an independent jewelry company that is based in Los Angeles and has been a manufacturer and wholesaler since 1978. So, you can tell that they are a fantastic company. I love that I was asked to work with a company that sells jewelry, rings mainly. They have Tungsten rings which are a great quality.  I always thought that Tungsten rings were only for men, but women can wear them too. I love how edgy the chunky ring looks. Ladies, you have to check out their website and order yourselves a ring. You will definitely be please with the quality. 

They also were kind enough to send me my own Tungsten ring and I really like wearing it. It is a great quality, pretty and comfortable too!

Helpful Tips to Prevent Your Shoes from Deteriorating

We all have that special pair of shoes that we love for one reason or another and we choose to continue wearing it even after its best years are behind it. Whether this refers to a rundown pair of sneakers or maybe that Sole Provisions fit flop which is just so comfortable, we all have trouble letting go. Well, now you can look after your shoes better with these helpful tips that will ensure that your footwear will last a lot longer.

1. Prevent the heels from wearing down

As you walk in your shoes, the heels will begin to wear down, as well as the soles. This process is unavoidable, but you can fix it. You should never let the heels wear down by more than a quarter inch as this will not only cause the shoes to lose the support they would normally provide, but it also causes them to bend out of shape. This problem can be corrected with a liquid urethane substance which is readily available, is cheap and will behave just like the regular material.


2. Maintain their shape

In shops, you will notice that the shoes have crumpled up paper inside of them in order to maintain their original shape. This is something that you can do at home, as well. It is a simple and effective method of making sure that your favorite shoes maintain the shape they had when you first bought them.

3. Use shoe trees

You can use shoe trees which fulfill the same function as the crumpled up paper, but it does it much better, if you want something more advanced. It works great, especially for leather shoes and can extend their life span considerably.

Eventually, when you are in need of new shoes, visit Sole Provisions and you will be able to browse at your leisure through a large collection of quality products.
