A Kevyn Aucoin Palette Giveaway to Celebrate My Blog Anniversary

October 26, 2016

I'm thrilled that rolala loves is celebrating it's 5 year blog anniversary this month. I initially started this space to support my photography business but then it somehow grew into it's own entity and I'm still at it. Reaching this milestone has me feeling nostalgic as I look forward. I thought it was appropriate to refresh the space at this time and I hope you like the new layout as much as I do.  I wanted a design with a clean and modern aesthetic and intuitive navigation that somewhat reflected the spirit of the former look. And I think this may be my favorite version of my logo yet. Thanks to everyone who's already noticed and given me feedback on it!

MD Sun Hydro Recovery Mask,  J.One Jelly Pack,  24/7 Touch Up Skin Perfecting Cream, Aveda Damage Remedy Split End Repair,   Real Techniques Bold Metals 300 Tapered Blush Brush,  RMS Beauty Lip2Cheek Illusive

You may notice things looking a little different around here today. rolala loves has gotten a makeover.  I'll talk more about that and the state of the blog on Wednesday. Also look out for a new giveaway then.

Now this is where I talk about some of the products I've been loving lately...

MD Sun Hydro Recovery Mask*
The rich formulation of this unique plant-derived biocellulose mask includes sodium hyaluronate and panthenol that deliver clinical grade emollients for intense hydration, skin resurfacing and anti-aging benefits. It also speeds skin recovery from facial treatments including laser and microdermabrasion. I used this mask during a time when my skin was acting up and I was pleased with the instant results. My skin was visibly calmed, plump and brightened with just one use. There was actually enough essence left over in the package that I was able to get one more mask out of it and my skin looked even better the second time. In case you're wondering, I didn't actually reuse the mask but I dropped in one of these sheets and sealed up the package and used it the next day.

Currently Coveting

October 21, 2016

Somehow my inclination towards nesting always seems to flip on whenever fall comes around and this month's wish list is all about home decor. What are you coveting lately?

1. Cool Stripe Lumbar Pillow
{This will be a stylish addition to our couch!}

2. Accent Table
{Love the sleek lines of this side table and it's such a bargain too.}

3. Peter Lindbergh: A Different Vision on Fashion Photography
{I collect photography books and Peter Lindbergh just happens to be one of my favorite photographers so this compendium is a must.}

4. Copper Phone
{This retro style phone totally reminds me of my childhood but ours didn't look as chic. Yes we still maintain a landline for emergencies.}

5. Diptyque Figuier Candle
{Been thinking about this luscious scent ever since I smelled it at the Diptyque store. Will have to pick up this candle after we finish our Jasmine one.}

6. Taylor Bud Vase
{Such an artful looking little vase.}

7. Nate Berkus Curved Slipper Chair
{This chair is just so pretty!}

Giorgio Armani Beauty, A Review

October 19, 2016
Armani Beauty Sì Eau de Parfum, Giorgio Armani Beauty Lip Manifesto, Armani Beauty, Armani Beauty Review, Lip Manifesto, #SaySi

I was selected to receive a full sized bottle of Sì Eau de Parfum Intense and two Giorgio Armani Beauty Lip Maestro lip colors for review in a recent Influenster VoxBox. This was exciting since I happen to like the regular Armani Sì scent. I had also recently picked up a Lip Maestro on a whim and it's been one of my go to lip colors this fall.

ChocZero Is Sugarfree Chocolate That Tastes Good

October 17, 2016
ChocZero Chocolate, ChocZero Review, Sugarfree Chocolate, Low Carb Chocolate

I may not eat sugar or sweets but one occasional indulgence I allow myself is chocolate. While there have been ongoing debates about whether chocolate is actually good for your health, chocolate just tastes good and feels like a decadent treat. The flavonoids in chocolate have been shown to lower blood pressure, improve your cholesterol levels and vascular functions. Dark chocolate contains a higher proportion of flavanoids than milk chocolate. I prefer dark chocolate anyway but the problem is that most of them still contain sugar which has zero benefits so I consume them sparingly. Of course my interest was piqued when ChocZero reached out and asked if I want to try their chocolate.
