Retail Spotlight Friday – summer beauty indulgences.

Being knocked up during the summer is a little challenging in the looking good department – especially when you are a) high risk and feeling run down, b) living in an area that gets really hot and humid, c) still need to pull it together and look polished for meetings and events. As such, retail spotlight Friday focuses on the beauty lifesavers that we are currently obsessed with at home and in the office, regardless of your situation. Not to mention, this blog can be downright depressing if not taken with the message that each and every one of us can affect change. To that point, sometimes we need a break from the realities and to indulge in some frippery. So, we love:

Body Bling Platinum by Scott Barnes – adds a touch of color and shimmer in a body lotion that gives serious glow. Cellulite disappears and limbs look long and skinny!
DiorShow Mascara in Blackout – best mascara, hands down. Perfection and worth it.
Sephora Brand Super Supreme Body Butter – smells like a dream, comes in a giant tub (wait til you have a bump!)and is made with all-natural ingredients. Great texture.
Essie Nail Polish in Bermuda Shorts – garish in the bottle, perfect on toes. I finally have broken from my pale milky pinks – everyone in the office wears this one!
The Body Shop White Musk – cheap, crisp, around for 20 years, still fresh
Korres Quince Lip Balm – so great and tastes divine. The whole line rocks.
Nars cream blush in Penny Lane – for the perfect flush, you need a cream.
Cargo Eyelighter in Gold – for the corners of your eyes, makes you look awake!
Tricia Sawyer Eye Slept balm – lacking sleep? Here’s the cure.
The Fit Flop – need we say more? Loving these!
Ted Gibson Hair Sheets – genius. I have a ‘fro unless I carry these around.
Stila Silk Eye Shadow Wash in Kitten – the perfect neutral, great on everyone
Boots No. 7 makeup remover towelettes – so cheap, anti-aging, deep cleansing
