April Favorites & Current Makeup-Prep Routine

Hi guys!  My April Faves & Current Makeup-Prep Routine vid is now up!  There were a ton of products that I’ve been loving this month, hence the lengthy vid.  I’ve been loving Jurlique’s Purely Age-Defying Eye Cream.

Jurliqe Purely Age Defying Eye Cream

It has a gel/lotion-like texture, and leaves my eye area feeling super soothed.  Many tend to think that applying heavy creams to the undereye area is a good thing.  On the contrary, heavy eye creams can actually clog the tiny pores around your eyes and draw attention to your eye area.  Thinner textured, uber-hydrating eye creams are the way to go for sensitive undereyes.  Jurlique’s is definitely one of my faves.  Bare Minerals Biolucent Mineral Brightening Treatment has also been amazeeee.  I apply it after I apply the Rose Hip Oil, and then I apply my moisturizer.

This combo has been giving my skin healthy radiance without the need to slather on as much highlighter 😉  One of my new holy grail’s is Chrislie/Measurable Difference’s Rose Hip Body Oil.  It is a luxurious, calming, & hydrating oil.  On the bottle it does say the oil can be applied to face, so I’ve been primarily using it as such :_)  Aside from the light, true rose scent & lovely roses floating at the top of the glass bottle, I love that a little goes a long way.  It applies from a glass dropper as a light oil, not  a heavy one, & leaves my skin feeling hydrated and dewy.

This oil very could be my fave product of life!!!!  Also been loving Real Techniques blush brush & Wet N’ Wild’s contour palettes!

What was I doing before this blush brush!?!!  The contour palettes include super soft powders that blend flawlessly! Especially love the banana shade for setting my undereye concealer.  The bronzers are matte, and are amazing for sculpting and all-over bronzing, not to mention, they also make great crease shades for that balanced bronzed makeup look. Petal Fresh’s Toning Hibiscus Papaya body butter has done wonders for body hydration this month as well.  I also recommend their Honey Coconut Oil flavor :)))  The Petal Fresh Pomegranate Face Wipes have been my quick face exfoliation go-to’s!

The thing I love the most about Petal Fresh is that their products include super natural ingredients. Next, Soapbox’s Mandarin Hand Soap won’t be leaving my sink anytime soon.  With every Soapbox purchase, Soapbox will donate a soap to someone in need.  Love their charitable efforts!!  The mandarin scent is divineeeeeee!!!!  Another fave is my plaid Posh Poncho chihuahua clothing design. Having a lot of fun making these!

Chihuahua Chic Fashion Designs by Kelley Nicole Collection

Happy Monday, my loves! It’s been a while since my last blog because I’ve spent most of last week designing with my dogs. Ha!  Alas, I’ve begun creating my chihuahua chic line with my chihuahua’s silhouettes! For my line, I started out sketching their silhouettes and logo. Thus far, I have made a few fringed chihuahua silhouette sweatshirts, a “Posh” cashmere scarf, “I Heart All The Cute Chi’s” convertible vest/shawl/scarf, Pooch Ponchos, & reversible silhouette tote bag.  There will be more to come in the future! :)))  Last week I wore my La Vida Sweatshirt to the Weepies concert.  It was a such a great show!  The convertible vest was so much fun to make.  It is a bit difficult to see in the photo, but the pink “I Heart All The Cute Chi’s” vest is hand painted in silver around the collar and down the back, and with hand sewn glass beads and pearls.  It’s made of super soft t-shirt material, and of course, a camo Poshie! Loving that it can be worn in so many different ways. I’m all about versatility, baby! Designing (aka tangible lessons of patience) is my absolute favorite thing to do.  I might start out a fashion project with an idea at hand, and it turn out completely different than I had expected (tangible lessons of losing all expectation). There are no limitations when it comes to art and design ❤ ❤ <3. My chihuahuas are enjoying modeling for the line as well, which is making it that much more fun!  They strike poses left and right 😉  Wishing everyone a week of fun and summertime sun! xoxo ~Kelle
