lace-5

i’m typing this post on one of my last few days in the u.s. before i head back to india. i was REALLY hoping for fall to come early because every year when i’m in india i crave over the knee boots, chunky cardis and pumpkin spice coffee. it finally got cold today and i ended up pulling out my uggs instead of anything cute (go figure), but i was remembering last week when i started adding some fall pieces into my everyday looks. i wore this black and nude lacey bodysuit out to dinner last weekend. it was a good step towards fall, considering i ditched white and neon colors, so i thought i would take some quick pictures and show it. bodysuits are all the rage right now. i love this one because the lace is super feminine and the nude lining makes it chic and sexy at the same time. bodysuits make an outfit look so put together because they are obviously tucked in so you don’t have to deal with a messy shirt. can’t wait to wear this in india since it is sleeveless.

BEAUTY MUST HAVES

 

1. sunday riley good genes treatment – this is a newer brand to me but when i bought it 6 months ago, i loved it! i use it at night as a treatment and i wake up looking so refreshed. it claims to help with fine lines and wrinkles and though i don’t have that concern yet, it definitely makes my skin look and feel plump. i don’t think you can ever be too young to start an anti-aging treatment. it also just exfoliates during the night so that i wake up with smooth skin.

2. nars laguna bronzer – i feel like all of my american friends wear this so if you wear bronzer, this is no surprise. it gives you an instant glow and tan with a perfect finish of not too matte or sparkly. i’ve been using this since freshman year of college and it’s always my go-to bronzer.

3. donna karen cashmere mist deodorant  – this is definitely probably my #1 beauty product that i can’t live without. it’s a.m.a.z.i.n.g. if you haven’t tried this, you have to. i don’t even know how to describe it but it is life changing. whenever i’m wearing this without any perfume, people ask me what i’m wearing, it’s that good. it’s just the perfect vanilla, powder, fresh scent. i’m obsessed.

4. l’occitane almond cleansing shower oil – this is the only thing i use in the shower for body wash. it’s an oil that turns into body wash as you rub it in, and it’s amazing! it smells like almonds and has a strong lasting power once you get out of the shower.

5. mac angel lipstick – i wrote about this in my top 5 nude lipsticks  recently. it’s the lipstick i’ve worn the longest and it goes with almost any look and works on most skin tones. it’s the perfect nude pink.

6. smith & cult pillow pie  nail polish  – this is my go to nail polish. i keep it in my purse at all times in case i ever need to do my nails. it’s the perfect not too cool, not too warm shade of pink. it goes with everything and the adorable bottle is just a bonus!

7. murad invisiblur pefecting shield sunblock – i haven’t been using this for a super long time, but i can say i couldn’t live without it, unless i find something better. it has spf 30 in it which i definitely have to use since i live in india where the sun is out almost every day. i would highly recommend it regardless of where you live as a skin protectant from uva/uvb rays. it also doubles as a primer which is the reason it completely sold me when i started using it.

8. mac mineralize skin finish in color soft & gentle – this is the best highlighter you can get. the powder form makes it super easy to work with (as opposed to the stick highlighters which need a bit of skill) and has the perfect champagne color. it works on all skin tones and has a great lasting power and color payoff.

9. redken extreme length primer – my sister got me hooked on this hair primer. it truly makes your hair grow SO QUICKLY. as soon as you apply it you can feel your hair turn a silky smooth texture. i use it about twice a week and it is so addicting.

10. marc jacobs daisy perfume – i always tell people this is my signature fragrance. i have so many perfumes but i truly can’t live without this one. i keep a rollerball in my bag and then i have multiple bottles at home. it has a strong gardenia note which is my all time favorite. i truly recommend this for an everyday wear if you like a gardenia scent.

i know i am late to the game on the 90’s, grunge comeback. i held off because i didn’t feel like wearing it in india since it had been more popular in the west. after looking through all of the shopping i’ve done this past month, i noticed a trend of 90’s items that i had purchased, without even realizing it. i figured i had to do a post and included pictures of a few of the items below! i ran into my neighbors while i was out and kept telling them to call me kelly kapowski- for anyone who doesn’t know her, click here! anyway, i’m loving everything 90’s at the moment (or at least my own take on it), especially this hairstyle which I rocked all of middle school. i am excited to get a few more things as i continue to reminisce on my style back then.
