Add a little LUXCHERI to your Life

I was recently told about this Chicago based Designer and checked out her online store.
I love finding hidden Chicago gems.

I chose this half leather half cotton clutch that I am in love with. Sometimes clutch bags tend to be tiny. All you can carry is a lipstick and a credit card. I love the size of this bag. I wore it out to dinner with some friends and carried my phone, camera, makeup bag, keys, and a cornucopia of other summer foolishness. Its the summer and I didn’t have any pockets. In these photos I took this cute clutch on a picnic with my kids in Millennium Park. I had a fun photoshoot in the grass! I wore it with a Prabal Gurung for Target floral top, White Linen Pants, and a pair of Chinese Laundry Bow Plastic flat sandals.

Over the last month I have tested some good foundations, tinted moisturizers, non pore clogging, and here is what I found loved and just thought was a good buy.

Become a London Summer Beauty with Rimmel


Summer is here. So it is time to think about your summer beauty buys. You should never wear the same colors year round on your face. Your skin will constantly have different needs based on the climate and location you live in. I need some new summer looks, and usually I love lots of high end luxury makeups. But the truth is they are often not in my budget. When I cannot splurge, I hunt for inexpensive alternatives. I went to Walmart to try the new special priced Rimmel London collection to try out some cute yet cost effective alternatives. If you want to see the entire shopping experience you can pop on over to Google+ to my thoughts on the Walmart selection and products.

Here are the two big trends in makeup right now. Read more…
