The January Beauty Board

Take a look at what I’m loving this month in the January Beauty Board …

A new bauble for the new year, thanks to Swarovski. This rose gold chain and charm on the Swarovski Tactic Pendant are the perfect bit of bling to add to those sweaters that have recently been getting a major workout this month.

If this bottle were a dress, I would wear it all day long. Instead, the Balenciaga Rosabotanica Eau de Parfum is a blend of hyacinth, fig leaf,¬†grapefruit, pink pepper, cardamom,¬†cedarwood, vetiver and patchouli, that ‘s equally wearable. Find it at Neiman Marcus.

Plucking is such a pain, but a girl’s gotta do what a girl’s gotta do. At least these stunning Luxe Edition Crystal Slant Tweezers at Neiman Marcus make the ugly task that much prettier. And considering I’m all about Swarovski crystal-covered goodies this month, how could I pass these up?

No Sulfates. No Parabens. No flat hair with B. The Product Shampoo for Volume and matching conditioner. Now that I’ve gone super dark, this combo guarantees to keep my color safe.

Fresh is one of my favorite brands. Everything smells so, well, fresh. This Fresh Honey Mask is perfect for putting back in the moisture this weird cold blast has taken out of my skin. And the Fresh Life Parfum is what I tote around when I need an afternoon pick-me-up.

Elton John and I have the same birthday. So, if my birthday twin makes a candle, I’m going to watch it burn, which is what I’m doing with the Nest Elton John Fireside Candle from Neiman Marcus, which blends vanilla with wood and juniper berries. It’s the perfect scent to recreate winter in Miami.

Slathering SPF on your face is just half the battle. In order to keep the hands of time stalled at 30-something, you have to slather cream on your neck and decollete, too. I’m a huge fan of PCA Skin products, so this PCA Skin Perfecting Neck & Decollete cream is a great way to keep father time at bay. I like using the excess to rub into my hands to ward off witchy fingers, too.

Two all-day photo shoots. a horrible cold and deadlines up the wazoo. Yeah, I never get enough sleep. I fake my way out of under-eye bags with Guerlain Orchidee Imperiale Eye Cream. It feels like slathering silk on your skin, which makes adding a little extra foundation to that part of my face that much easier. Also apply to lips to give them a smooth look and feel. Find this little gem at Neiman Marcus.

And that’s how I’m doing January.
