Elemis x Misha Nonoo Luxury Travel Essentials for her review

Elemis x Misha Nonoo travel kit review

travel kit c/o Elemis: Limited Edition Elemis x Misha Nonoo travel kit

Raise your hand if you have had beauty products confiscated by TSA? My hand is up! I lost over $100 worth of beauty products flying back from Dallas last spring because I had “too many products” in my carry-on bag. If only I had this fabulous travel kit by Elemis when I was flying, nothing would have been confiscated!

This compact travel kit is the brilliant result of a collaboration between Elemis and Misha Nonoo. It is a limited edition travel kit which contains all of the luxury skin care essentials needed for travel; without having to worry about not passing inspection by TSA. Love that!

The Elemis x Misha Nonoo Luxury Travel Essentials for her kit contains everything we need for maintaining our skin care routine while travelling. Inside the kit you will find Elemis’s Pro-Radiance Cream Cleanser (1 oz.), Balancing Lavender Toner (1.6 oz.), Papaya Enzyme Peel (0.5 oz.),  White Flowers Eye & Lip Makeup Remover (0.9 oz.), Pro-Collagen Marine Cream (1 oz.), Frangipani Monoi Shower Cream (1.6 oz.), and Elemis Frangipani Monoi Body Oil (1.1 oz.).

All of these products are TSA approved; and the pretty makeup bag designed by Misha Nonoo has plenty of room for other items such as a toothbrush, toothpaste, dental floss, comb; and anything else you might want to throw in there!

My next trip will be a long weekend in Lake Tahoe, so despite the fact that I won’t be on a plane, I will still pack this travel kit since it will save a lot of space in my suitcase; plus the products are amazing!

You can find the Elemis x Misha Nonoo Luxury Travel Essentials for her kit online here. Where is your next travel destination?

Kendra Scott fall 2017 collection kick-off party

kendra scott fall 2017 collection

The Kendra Scott fall 2017 collection has arrived! As you know, Kendra Scott is one of my favorite jewelry designers. I love her colorful collection which includes pieces designed by inspiration from her travels. When the Kendra Scott store at Santana Row announced they were having a fall 2017 collection kick-off party, I knew I had to attend!

Kendra Scott knows how to throw a party! There was a live DJ playing popular tunes, an Italian Soda Bar, and delicious appetizers. So yummy! I met up with my friend Laura from Have-Need-Want, and we checked out the Kendra Scott fall 2017 collection while enjoying the party. So fun! Somehow we failed to get a picture of us together at the party. Um, #BloggerFail

After the party, we enjoyed a yummy dinner at Left Bank. I tried the Vegetarian Risotto and it was delicious! Highly recommend!!

kendra scott fall 2017 bracelets

How beautiful are these bracelets! They are extremely similar to a bracelet from Kendra Scott’s fall 2013 collection which I own in gold. I was thrilled to see them as part of Kendra Scott’s fall 2017 collection since I get a ton of compliments and questions about my gold one. I am tempted to get the updated version in the rose gold and the antique silver. So pretty!!

How divine is this purple-red stone named “Bordeaux Tiger’s Eye!” These statement earrings are hotter then hot for fall. Statement earrings are a big fall 2017 trend, and these earrings fit the bill. I would love a pair for the fall season, and also to wear for upcoming holiday parties!

These earrings are at the top of my Kendra Scott fall 2017 wish list. I want them in silver, and as soon as I get my next paycheck; they will be mine! I already have the silver ring featured in this photo, so when worn together, they will be fabulous!

There is that pretty Bordeaux Tiger’s Eye again! Isn’t is fabulous! I can’t wait to pick a piece out and add it to my collection. The purple-red hue is divine; and a must-have for any jewelry collection. I am in love!

These necklaces are soooooo pretty! I want the one in Ivory Illusion with yellow gold. It is really pretty and easy to wear with any color palette. It can also be worn in any season; it’s another must-have! This necklace also comes in that beautiful Bordeaux Tiger’s Eye. Love!

kendra scott fall 2017 nail polish

Kendra Scott has such pretty nail polish! I love all of these metallic colors. One of the nail polish trends for fall 2017 is metallic nails. These colors fit perfectly into the trend! Which color is your favorite?

All in all, the Kendra Scott fall 2017 collection is beautiful; and easy to integrate into the fall trends from the runways, which have made it to the streets. If you are local to the Bay Area, check out the collection in person at Santana Row, if not, you can see it in all it’s beautiful glory online at KendraScott.com.

Walking into fall with ModCloth

Wearing items c/o of ModCloth: Shirtdress / Mustard Shoulder Bag / Brown Cardigan Sweater / Green Western Style Blouse / Plaid Midi Skirt

Can you believe it is almost the fall season? Despite the fact that it is technically still the summer season, we are getting cool morning fog, and school starts this week; so technically it feels like fall has started!

This is the time of year when I love to transition my wardrobe from summer into fall. I love wearing the hottest fall trends while staying comfortable in the warm summer temperatures. ModCloth has a such a great collection of early fall merchandise; it makes it easy to rock the new fall trends while staying comfortable in the summer weather.

ModCloth has so many amazing pieces for walking into the fall season. Plus, it is so easy to find something which fits perfectly! ModCloth offers sizes for every body type imaginable; with sizes ranging from XXS to 4XL. Nothing makes me feel more positive about my body then knowing I can find my size!  It really is empowering.

I love seeing clothing on real people, rather than professional models. ModCloth has taken the concept of seeing the clothing on real people by including a Style Gallery on ModCloth.com. It is so cool to be able to see the clothing on multiple body-types; you instantly know what it will look like on you!

If you are having trouble putting an outfit together, or finding the right look for an event, ModCloth.com has Mod Stylists available who can help you shop the site. It is like being in a store, without having to dodge crowds or try to grab a Sales Assistant’s attention. Mod Stylists are readily available online, and you don’t have to dodge any crowds for their help. It’s so luxurious!

You can visit ModCloth.com for more information about the uber cool Style Gallery, or for personal assistance from a Mod Stylist. Now, let’s chat about my favorite pieces for walking into fall from ModCloth.

I absolutely adore separates for the early fall season; also known as pre-fall. The outfit pictured above is a great collection of separates to help get from summer into fall. The cardigan is a classic must-have for foggy mornings, and cool evenings. It can be worn over jeans and a tee, a summer slip dress, and then worked into a fall ensemble like the one I am wearing. This cardigan is a must-have workhorse for transitioning from summer into fall! Love!

This western style green blouse is a great piece for fall. The western trend is emerging, and in 2018, will prove to be an important one. I plan on wearing it with jeans on casual days, and with this skirt all season long! It will be fabulous in early spring too with a denim skirt and slides. Love it!

Can we talk about this plaid skirt for a moment? It really is the centerpiece of my summer into fall wardrobe from ModCloth. This skirt can also be paired with a linen tee on warm days, along with mules or slides. When the weather gets colder, it will look amazing with over the knee boots, and a cozy sweater for a casual look, or for a more dressy look, tights, heels, and a wool blazer. There are so many possibilities with this skirt! That must be why ModCloth named it the “Hero Skirt.” It is a wardrobe hero!

I truly believe for any summer into fall wardrobe to be complete, one must have separates to integrate into one’s summer wardrobe, as well as one fabulous dress. Oh this dress! It has an on trend 1970s vibe; which is a hot trend for fall. It also has a slimming effect, as well as offers a comfortable fit. I am in love! I wore this dress back to school shopping with my kids, and my mom told me she had a dress like it in the 1970s. Rocking a fall trend while staying comfortable in summer weather; pre-fall fashion mission accomplished!

Since I am a handbag superfan, you might be wondering why I have not mentioned this cute little shoulder bag yet! Well, you know me, save the best for last! I love this bag! It has a built-in wallet system with four separate compartments. This bag can be worn over the shoulder for a 1970s vibe, or it can be worn cross body for comfort, and ease of use. I have been wearing it both ways, and love it!

There are many more pieces from ModCloth.com which are perfect for transitioning from summer into fall. Be sure to visit ModCloth.com to see everything they have right now!
