Try It Tuesday: Kate Somerville Line Release Under Eye Repair Cream

I decided to create a new series of posts, my version of Try It Tuesdays! I have hoarded so many samples and products that I never get to use. These hardly ever show up on my empties and by the time that they do, they sometimes end up going bad. So hopefully this along with my empties, I keep track of a list of my favorite products that work for me.

This past weekend while away on my road trip, instead of bringing a full size eye cream, I brought along with me this Kate Somerville Line Release Under Eye Repair Cream sample packet. The full size comes with a hefty price tag at $125. The packet lasted 2 days and nights with a total of 4 applications. Don't think the whole dark circles and anti aging worked in those 4 times I used it, but I do love the creamy texture. It feels very luxurious and not greasy on my eyes. Most importantly, it didn't crease my under eye concealer. Adding this to my to buy list for the future.

I see this has 4 stars on Sephora. Anybody try it before? I'm still in search of my perfect eye cream.

OOTD: Cool Summer Blue

Hi everyone, I just came home from a nice long weekend away in the Hamptons celebrating my birthday with my fiance. This weekend was all about doing what I love - shopping!

Today was much cooler but you'll still feel that summer heat if you are under the sun too long. So I opted for something nice and breezy.

Vans X ASPCA and Converse 'Jack Purcell' from Nordstrom Anniversary Sale

Here's a close up of the sneakers. These Vans Slip Ons are so cute! I rushed to stores once I saw Hollyannaree posted about these. They were on sale in stores for $29.99. These are my first Vans so I wasn't sure what to expect. The soles definitely feel comfy enough, but the canvas upper actually scraped the top of my toes, bad enough to leave a blister. =(   So in the outfit, you can see my wearing Puma no-show socks (the irony I know) that I had to buy and put on right away.

Sadly back to work for me tomorrow, hopefully it'll be a good week!

Review: Lush 'Perfect' Roll Tab Sleeve Tunic (Nordstrom Anniversary Sale)

Today's the last day of the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale! So it's time to snatch up as many goodies as you can before prices go up. Aside from the lovely purses that I shared in my last post, this Lush 'Perfect' Roll Tab Sleeve Tunic (on sale for just under $28) was definitely another favorite of so many. There are sooooo sooooo many posts on IG if you look for #nsale of this tunic.

I immediately ordered this top in 3 different colors when I saw that the classic ivory and olive colors were being backordered. This blue was still available in my size and shipped out to me immediately. When I took it out of the plastic bag, I was so excited. It is exactly how I imagined it to be, soft and drapey in all the right places.  I couldn't wait to get my hands on the other 2 colors!

And here they are, all side by side, definitely beautiful tops and material, but guess what? I'm RETURNING the olive and ivory!
