A Little Me Time Over the Weekend: Spring Style and Beauty Must Haves

 I am living for the weekends these days!  Most of my weekends have been consisting of lot of catching up on housework, life, blog etc. or they have been the complete opposite: relaxation, family time, and if I’m really lucky a teeny bit of “me time.”

With the change of each season there are always changes that take place.  Right now it seems like our life is constantly changing with baby Charlie.  The second we think we figure it out, we can breathe a huge sigh of relief.  I’m not kidding you, it changes.  It’s so fun to watch her learn and grow.  It’s like getting to see the world through her eyes where everything is new and exciting!  Along with life changes everyday things change like our beauty routines and our style.   We dress according to the weather or we use different products that emphasize the season!  I had the opportunity for some “me time” over the weekend and tested out some new products to get you prepared for the warmer months.  Here are my thoughts on these Spring Style and Beauty must haves…

First, “me time” always consists of coffee.  If it’s been a good night (meaning I get a few hours stretch of sleep) I like to wake up in the morning before everyone else so I can just sit and drink some coffee in quiet.  Sometimes I read a magazine or book, but sometimes I just sit in the quiet and drink my coffee.  Zenni sent over these glasses in the photo that are too adorable not to share with you!  They actually have UV blocking technology even though the lens is clear!  I also received these premium sunglasses.  I love the quality and how on trend these glasses for such an affordable price.  I’m sure you would agree that a good pair of glasses are probably one of the most essential accessories for Spring! Spring Style and Beauty Must Haves - Zenni Sunglasses- Coffee

Another necessary, warm weather item is a multi-way bra!  This BALI: One Smooth U® Multiway bra is the absolute only way to go!  You can wear this bra 8 different ways, which makes it perfect for virtually any shirt you may own: racerback, strapless, one shoulder, the list goes on.  Plus, I love the smoothing technology.  I can save space (and money) by having this one bra for multi purposes.  BALI is having a major sale right now on this Bra ($18!!) + FREE SHIPPING on any order!

Does anyone update their beauty routine each season?  I do every season!  It’s mainly because my skin needs different things, depending on the weather, moisture, or dryness that’s in the air.  During the Spring my skin begins have life, but not without some beauty products!  I recently gave Colleen Rothschild a try.

I know I’ve mentioned how much I love using a cleansing balm as my cleanser because it’s so easy to use (and creates less mess).  This Cleansing Balm left my skin feeling clean and smooth.  I’m really excited to continue to use it to see more of the long term affect during the upcoming months!

This Colleen Rothschild Retinol Supreme Night oil has rave reviews!  At my age incorporating a Retinol night product into your beauty routine has many benefits.  This one in particular, helps skin tone and texture as well as bringing your skin to life and reducing dullness- a complete must after the dreadful winter months!

Spring Style and Beauty Must Haves - Erin's Faces

To be honest, I am always hunting for the perfect glow for my skin all times of the year.  I, especially, want this glow during the months with sunshine.  I’ve tried many highlighters and I definitely have my favorites, but none- and I mean none, give the golden glow like Erin’s Faces does!  I used the mineral powder on my cheeks and in the corners of my eyes for a pop!  It is a gorgeous multi used powder (that happens to be vegan).  Add this to your must have beauty list for Spring.

Life is short.  Buy the shoes.  These shoes are stunning!  Spring is the perfect time to show off those beautiful heels with flowy dresses, an upcoming event, or perhaps a wedding?  These Badgley Mischka  beauties completely take me back to old Hollywood with the gorgeous rose satin color and darling embellishment!  I honestly cannot wait to dance the night away at one of the local Spring events here in Pittsburgh!  Perhaps the Party at the Pier, the most fashionable event in Pittsburgh?
