beauty fix - clinique

 Clinique Acne Solution Spot Gel $17.50                              Clinique Deep Comfort Hand & Cuticle Cream $22

Hello my lovely style strutters! I have some wonderful beauty finds to share with you all. I spent last weekend in Vermont at my good friends' cottage (thanks again Charles and Lily!!) for some relaxing outdoorsy girl time. Although it was truly relaxing an unexpected companion popped up during my weekend getaway, a major frenemy also known as a pimple - cue dramatic music! Thus bringing me to my latest discovery Clinique's Acne Solutions Spot Treatment Gel. This product works wonders, simply dab a small amount of the clear gel twice a day and within a few days POOF that thing has disappeared allowing you to get back to canooing, sitting outside under the hot sun or enjoying a tub of Ben & Jerry's Red Velvet ice cream! Yes, you read that correctly Ben & Jerry's makes red velvet ice cream MMMmmmmmmm
Another great beauty find is Clinique's Deep Comfort Hand and Cuticle Cream. This moisturizer leaves your hands silky smooth without that unnecessary residue.
I've attached one of the few photos I took over the weekend, as you can see I managed to capture truly important moments i.e. discovering this deliciously satisfying midnight snack.

who wore it best - red & pink

Remember when Emma Stone wore this adorable Giambattista Valli red top and pink skirt to the Friends With Benefits Premiere? 
Sidenote: still haven't seen that movie but I did see The Help with my friend Alix and we cried like babies (as did the rest of the theatre) go see The Help and bring lots of Kleenex. 
Ok let's get back on track, this unique color combo which was once a fashion faux-pas (aka Valentine's day overkill) is now up for debate. Sarah Jessica Parker pulls off these colors in a slightly more demure yet playful way while visiting Letterman in a Prabal Gurung ensemble. 
I vote for Emma Stone on this one simply because Sarah Jessica Parker's choice to complete her look with white pumps just doesn't do it for me.

white after labor day?

My friend Tania (and recent birthday girl) brought up the "no white after labor day rule" during her celebratory birthday dinner last week while sporting her favorite white jeans for the very last time this season. So my question is - does the no white after labor day rule still apply OR are rules meant to be broken?
