Welcome the to BAF Weekly IT List! This is a new series I am starting here on the blog. Normally this will post on Fridays, but this week I am a little behind. So watch for this series on Fridays!

What is the BAF Weekly IT List? Every Friday I will be sharing the top five IT items of the week which have appeared on the blog recently. These are a combination of products you love, great price deals for the item and season, as well as must-haves for the season. I hope you enjoy this new series. If you want to see anything specific highlighted in this series, feel free to email me, or comment below and share your thoughts!

Also, you may have noticed my collages have a new look. Last week I attended the rewardStyle Conference online, and one of the tips they mentioned was using a collage software to spice up collages. I have always known this tip, but never executed it. When hearing it during the conference, it struck a cord in me as something I needed to do, but never did. You know, like the clothing sitting on your sewing machine waiting to be repaired but is starting to collect dust instead? Yeah, kinda like that. I needed a little kick to get it done.

I am now using Adobe Spark to spice up my collages. I hope you love the new look. Again, feel free to give me feedback. I want you to enjoy what you read here 🙂

Now, let’s get back to the BAF Weekly IT List! This handbag is an incredible buy. It is currently on sale until Sunday, August 30, 2020. Then, it goes back to regular price; which it is currently offered at on the brands website. I highly recommend snapping it up if you have been on the fence before the price goes back up. You can currently save $195 on it! Run, don’t walk to this deal! I love the vintage vibe it offers, plus it is a classic style you will love forever.

You love nail polish, and so do I! These are the two top selling colors of the week. They’re my favorites too. You have fabulous taste 😉

We all need classic black slides. I have been wearing my pair for several years now; especially during the fall season. This pair is offered at a fabulous price. Snag a pair before they are gone!

Lastly, this tee has already sold out at Nordstrom, but you can find it online here while it lasts. I purchased it for fall and have found myself reaching for it often. It is ultra soft, and super cute. Plus, the puff sleeves are on trend for fall. Love that!

Stay tuned for my fall capsules, which will start to appear on the blog next week! Also, let me know how you like this new series.

Thanks for stopping by!

Pureology hair care review

pureology professional hair care review

Pureology Professional hair care products from left: all products c/o Pureology: Hydrate Shampoo / Hydrate Conditioner / Refresh & Go Dry Shampoo / Texture Finishing Spray / Hydrate Soft /

OK, raise your hand if your hair is crazy-dry this year! My hand is waaaaaay up! If you are like me this year, you are spending the majority of your time outside. Since pretty much everything indoors is closed, with the exception of supermarkets and some stores, we have all been outside in the sun, at the pool, and at the beach. This has wreaked havoc on my hair; not to mention I have not been able to get my hair trimmed since March due to all of our salons being shut down. My hair is so dry, and in need of a haircut. Thankfully the Pureology products are saving me!

I was thrilled when Pureology sent me a PR package filled with their hair care products. I quickly found the purple bottle, the Hydrate collection, was the ideal line for my dry hair. I have been outside a lot, plus swimming in the pool more than usual. This has caused my untrimmed ends to become very dry, and close to getting brittle. I am loving the Pureology Hydrate collection because it has restored hydration to my ends, and my hair in general. While it cannot trim my hair for me, it does keep it healthy. Which is what we all need right now anyway!

I love that Pureology was created right here in California. Yay local!! In addition to being local, Pureology offers sulfate-free and vegan products which are professional quality. Salons always have the best products, and even though we cannot go to them right now, it is nice to be able to get that professional, salon quality hair care right at home. Love this!

Pureology is not only sulfate-free, and vegan, their products are made without parabens and mineral oil. This helps keep their products safer for the environment and for us, the users. Love! Plus, yes there is more, the packaging is made from 95% post consumer recycled plastic and is 100% recyclable. Love that!

OK, let me swing back around to how it hydrates my hair. Once a week I love to use the Pureology Hydrate Soft treatment. I am using this treatment after I shampoo and conditioner my hair. It really makes my hair healthy and hydrated by using key ingredients such as shea butter and sweet almond oil. It smells so good! I am addicted to this product!

On days when I don’t wash my hair, I can easily refresh it with the Pureology Refresh & Go dry shampoo. This dry shampoo works really well and doesn’t leave any white residue. It’s really awesome!

If you are not looking for hydration like me, Pureology also has a fabulous collection of strengthening and volume hair care products. I will include them in the shopping widget below. You can click on each one for more information.

I am in love with this hair care collection by Pureology! I hope you find you love it too.

Chanel nail polish fall 2020 review

The Chanel fall 2020 nail polish collection is here! Not surprisingly, the colors are simple, chic, and classic; which is a true reflection of the fall 2020 season.

Fall 2020 is all about keeping things simple and classic. This nail polish for the autumn season provides that very vibe. The pink is chic, and the red is vampy; both ideal fall colors for a classic look. Love it!

So, without further ado, let’s dig in to the fall 2020 nail polish collection from Chanel!

Chanel nail polish fall 2020 : Chanel Interdit

Chanel Interdit nail polish for the fall 2020 season is a dark and vampy red hue. It is a deep and mysterious red with dark blue undertones bordering on black. It actually reminds me of vamp! Which is interesting given that fall 2020 fashion has 1990s influences. Chanel Interdit nail polish will blend in perfectly with these vibes!

If you are a classic, red nail polish girl, this is your hue of fall 2020. Interdit by Chanel can be worn both day and night; making it fabulous for the office and a night on the town. Or, if you are still locked down like we are in California, it can make you feel like you have someplace to go.

Chanel nail polish fall 2020 : Chanel Egerie

Pink is another timeless nail polish hue. To reinvent this classic shade, Chanel is giving us Egerie for the fall 2020 season. This is a light pink nail polish color with slightly white undertones. It is more of a pale pink than one would expect for the autumn season. This makes Chanel Egerie nail polish a feminine and playful hue for the fall season. If you are still on lockdown, this is a color you can put on and not worry about if it chips. Since it is such a light color, chips won’t show easily. Love that!

Chanel lipstick fall 2020

chanel lipstick fall 2020 review

There are more colors from Chanel in their fall 2020 lipstick collection than just Lust. But, this was the one color I was drawn to. After all, when I go out in public I am wearing a mask. This dark yet sheer color is perfect for video conferencing since it shows up without being heavy. I am a huge fan of the Rouge Coco Flash collection. The colors offer sheer color and the lipstick itself is moisturizing and long lasting. Love!

Which color is your favorite for the fall season? Chanel Interdit nail polish is my favorite hue, but I will definitely get a lot of use out of Egerie too!

Thanks for stopping by!
