Let’s be honest…nothing is more fun than wandering through a make-up/beauty/hair product superstore!  I was able to indulge last night after work-I desperately needed the Ulta re-load.

Ulta Reload 3

I love Jen Ann’s new line of hair products, Living Proof.  We all battle the constant humidity on the coast-my hair is super out of control during the summer months.  Her No Frizz formula works wonders and does not weigh my hair down.  Winner!

Ulta has its own line of cosmetics…perfect for the basics that you don’t want to break the bank on.  I picked up this bone eyeshadow that I wear as a base color for $7 bucks! 

I recently did a purge on the nail basket…colors I still love, but are 3+ years old get thrown in the trash!  Essie is my favorite polish brand.  They go on, stay on and without a doubt have the best wand!  I picked up Haute As Hello and Topless & Barefoot for a little end of summer spruce!

I always have pressed translucent in the purse make-up bag.  Who doesn’t need the mid-day touch up??!  My product of choice is Maybelline Fit Me Pressed Powder in translucent.

Because there is never enough lip gloss in my life, I grabbed a Philosophy Vanilla Birthday Cake lip shine.  They are the best…and stay on forever!

Getting home I was delighted to find the September Vanity Fair Style Issue with Natalia Vodianova on the cover.  The photography in this issue trumps all the other annual VF issues(in my humble opinion).  The featured style icons are the most clever mix of haute couture mavens, street style fashionistas and everything in between.  There was also a page dedicated to fashion bloggers that I have not seen in past Style issues.  GO VF…way to support!

Happy Friday everyone…I am ready to the bell to ring!  XOXO,  Catherine
