The Summer Vest

Women Summer vest

Layering in the summer can pose as a real challenge, especially when the weather can get really hot and humid very quickly. However, perfecting layering is also key to combating and preparing for the summer season’s temperature changes and transitioning from the heat to cooler temperatures. You know, those days in the summer with cooler nights or mornings. Or when heading inside only to be blasted with the cold air from too much air conditioning! For today’s outfit I chose to layer with a structured summer vest. A summer vest allows you to lightly layer, but still keep it summer appropriate.

I bought this vest from Target recently, when I was just making a quick stop to get a few things. I really should of avoided the clothing section but I could not fight the urge and walked right on in.  I found a couple of really cute pieces including the vest.

Today is also Thrift Style Thursday and the theme is floral so I brought back my watercolor floral shirt seen in this post (here). The yellow in the shirt went perfectly with the yellow linen shorts from H&M.

Hoped you enjoyed the post!

Summer is here and with a new season marks a slight change in one's beauty routine. Today on the blog I'm talking beauty with Revlon ColorStay makeup. 
Last month I had the opportunity to preview some new products being introduced to the Revlon ColorStay makeup collection. I had an opportunity to try everything from foundations to eye, nail and lip products. However, today I wanted to share and highlight two of my favorite products; Revlon ColorStay Moisture Stain, and Revlon ColorStay Gel Envy nail polish. The collection is currently being sold in many drugstores in both the US and in Canada and I highly encourage you all to head to your local drugstore and try them out.

Revlon ColorStay  Moisture Stain

At all times I must always have some kind of  lip color on my lips or else I feel completely naked. However, sometimes I like to deviant from bright, matte, and pigmented lipsticks to something light and glossy. 
Revlon ColorStay has introduced a lip stain that is infused with Vitamin E and aloe to moisturize the lips without stickiness. The lip stain is available in 12 shades and are packaged in a light sleek rectangular tube.

What I like about the product:
1.      It’s pigmented enough to give some color to the lips
2.      It' s indeed moisturizing and leaves a beautiful glossy finish  without major stickiness even after an hour of wear
3.      I love the thickness of the application brush which makes applying the stain easy to apply
4.      I love the texture of this product, it has a slippery feel oppose to a thick sticky feel on my lips
5. Fair price point at $12.95 ( Canadian)

 Revlon ColorStay Gel Envy Nail Polish

Available now in stores both in Canada and the US are Revlon ColorStay gel envy nail polishes. The collection comes in 30 vibrant shades and one top coat. It’s a two step system that consists of  a ColorStay gel envy nail color/base  and secondly a top coat.

Top to bottom: 640 Jokers Wild, 440 Wild Card, 410 Up the Ante

What I like about the product:
1.      I like the two step system (color/base coat & top coat) oppose to the three step system (base coat, color & top coat) which was very time consuming to apply
2.      The colors are very vibrant and depending on the color you use, you may only need one coat before applying the top coat
3.      The price is reasonable at $7.95 (Canadian)
4.     Provides a gel like finish at home 

I hope you enjoyed my mini review, and if you want to see more Revlon ColorStay products or need more information please go to  http://www.revlon.ca
