Tom Ford Iris Bronze Palette Review and Swatches / Nordstrom Anniversary sale


It's the most wonderful time of the year; Nordstrom Anniversary Sale!!  

Okay well for me Christmas is my favorite time of the year but this is a close second besides Halloween.

The next few post will be about what I picked up from the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale.

First up is the Tom Ford Iris Bronze Collection.

Look how gorgeous this palette is and best part is you get two mini lipsticks all encased in a little brown and gold collectors box.


Look how gorgeous this is!

Time to get up close and personal with these gorgeous goodies

Iris Bronze 

Spiced Honey 57, Casablanca 03

Tom Ford is a very prestiges brand and rarely has sales and/or gift with purchase.

Just the eyeshadow quad alone will cost you $88.00 dollars. 

Again this is a very high end brand so in case you get sticker shock.

This Nordstrom exclusive set comes with the Iris Bronze quad and two mini lipsticks in Spiced Honey and Casablanca and is $87.00.

I went in store to shop the first day of the sale and there were none on the shelf where it was to be.
I should of known by the crowd of 6 ladies around the tester that they were waiting for something.   The sales associate came out with exactly 7 boxes so luckily we all got one and that was all they had in the back. 

Im sure some store still have them in stock and hopefully they will restock online soon.

I love the colors in the palette and the lipsticks are very pretty as well as nice and pigmented.

If you are a Tom Ford Beauty lover I highly recommend you get this.

XOXO,

Vicki

Sol De Janeiro Brazilian Crush / Favorite of the Week



Happy Monday all you beautiful people.

Recently I started a new series on the blog, every Monday I will post a favorite of the prior week or just in general.

This week is from Sol De Janeiro and it's Brazilian Crush, but honestly this is just one of my favorites in general.

I have been using it on the daily for a a few weeks now.



This is a whopping 8.1 oz. the bottle is huge and will last you along time.

I am not a being fan of super sweet or don't like to smell like food in general.
It is a sweeter scent but not over the top or overwhelming.

The description is; pistachio with salted caramel scent, which to be honest did not entice me.

I ended up buying a Sephora Favorites kit and a mini of this was in it.

At first I was just like meh, but after a few minutes I was loving it.

Now I am hooked. You can spray it all over your body and hair.

It smells a lot like the Laura Mercier Almond Coconut scent which is AMAZING and was a favorite of mine a few years ago. 

Now that I have discovered Sol De Janeiro this is my new favorite.

It smell exactly like the Bum Bum cream.

It is like vacation in a bottle.

I highly recommend you smell this next time you are in Sephora.

Retail is $32.00 which is a great price and Sol De Janeiro has sales and bundles on their website all the time.

XOXO,

Vicki

Too Faced Beach Bunny Vibes on a Summer Day



You know with this crazy heatwave we are all going through recently, which I am pretty sure is across the U.S. right now, I decided to take a fun drive along the California Coast with my daughter for some girl time and good conversation.

I just happened to have my little Too Faced bunny bag I got a few months back and decided to stop by this glorious lighthouse and take my bag of goodies and start snapping pictures.


I just had my favorite  face primer which is so hydrating and smells like coconuts. Of course I had my Clover melted matte lipstick (one of my favorite colors from TF) and the famous Chocolate matte bronzer which totally smells just like chocolate.



I mean the view is just fabulous here.




On the way back home we stopped and watched some kite surfing.

Oh my word that looks so fun and scary at the same time. I mean some of  them were flying extremely high off the water.

I had to snap a picture of this adorable TF bunny bag again and it yes it does have a little fluffy tail on the back.

What do you do to beat the heat? 

Do you take fun little day trips??

XOXO,

Vicki
