Naked Advanced Skin Cream Fixes Everything!

Well!  Despite my best efforts to marinate in SPF 50 baby sunblock at the beach this weekend, I've returned with a bit of a sunburn.  I'm at a loss as to how it happened; I am vigilant about sunscreen, you guys.  Luckily I have a new miracle cream that fixes nearly any skin woe!

At a trade show last fall I picked up a huge jar of Naked Advanced Skin Cream and really, it is the BEST product to have on hand year round.  It's chock full of super healthy vitamins, amino acids, honey, botanicals, and a zillion other luxurious, healing ingredients.  It's also formulated without mineral oil, petrolatum, parabens, and other nasty chemicals.  Plus they don't test on animals!  Naked is a fabulous company and this cream is truly a must have product.

Another unique thing about Naked cream is that, instead of water as the main ingredient like in most creams, Naked's main ingredient is aloe.  You know what famous celebrity endorsed product also has aloe as a main ingredient?  Creme De La Mer!  Except Naked is way, way better for your skin.  It's healed my sunburn extra quickly!  This is day three and it's barely visible.  My skin hasn't even peeled because this cream is so hydrating.  It's amazing for your face and your body as well.  I don't think I've ever used anything so moisturizing! 

Naked Advanced Skin Cream is available online in a giant 9 oz. container!  It lasts forever.  Plus you'll also get two 1 oz. travel sized creams.  It's a fantastic treatment for sunburns and dry scaly skin, and great as a moisturizer year round.  My skin has never looked better!

Sephora by OPI Betsey Johnson Scented Nail Lacquer

Is there anything more gorgeous for spring than sporting bright hot pink lacquered nails?  My current obsession is this Betsey Johnson It's My Pink scented (!!!) nail polish for Sephora.  It is a must for any Betsey fans as this shade appears in a TON of Ms. Johnson's designs!  Annnnd once it's dry, the polish smells like her new fragrance Too Too.  It's a clever spin and smells fun and frivolous, but the scent is very, very subtle.  It's not going to overpower any regular perfume, but it does linger for several days.  I'll definitely be wearing this through August!  Betsey Johnson's It's My Pink is a perfect 2012 trend for spring and summer!

This nail polish also inspired me to dust off some of my old Betseyville by Betsey Johnson purses!  I'm looking forward to carrying them again.

Matching my nails to my handbag with this tiger print satchel!

This amazing and kitschy patent telephone purse was one of the first indulgences I bought with my very own paycheck back in...2007?  My best friend thought I was nuts but I still love this bag!

Do you own any Betsey Johnson creations?  What nail polishes are you loving lately?

InStyle March 2012 Beauty Must Haves

I'm so inspired by this gorgeous beauty editorial in the March 2012 issue of InStyle!  The latest trends of spring and summer are pictured amid piles of indulgent sweets.  Don't the fuchsia nail polishes, violet eyeshadows, and coral lipsticks look even more fun and decadent? 

Which trend do you like best?  I've got fuchsia nail polish and purple eyeshadow in spades, now I want to find a great coral lipstick!  Got any other recs for me?

P.S. Happy Easter to those who are celebrating!  Another reason I love this candy coated makeup spread so much? I haven't eaten sweets since February!  It's Easter candy time you guys X-D
