01 | Hourglass ambient bronzer -- huge product release this summer and a great addition to the Hourglass powder family (which, by the way are amazing). these are going to give you a luminous sun-kissed glow. it comes in two shades: luminous bronze light (for fair/light complexions) and radiant bronze light (for medium/deep complexions). great reviews and swatches on @Temptalia / @thebeautylookbook / and @TheBeautyProfessor.
02 | Lipstick Queen lipstick in jungle queen -- (try saying i 3x fast). ever since seeing this on the utterly beautiful @ICovetThee (who by the way, has the sexiest accent ever! her youtube videos are amazing) last year, it's been on my list. i might have to cave sometime... it's the perfect summer coral-ly red orange... purchase this tax-free from spaceNK.com or bloomingdales.com.
03 | Sephora formula X nailpolish in thrilling -- tried this on in store, it's such a beautiful neutral taupe-ish color. the formula is supposed to enhance color and overall shine while providing a long lasting finish. on the website it is described as a "cloud gray." hrmmm....
04 | Kevyn Aucoin matte bronzing veil -- this a good alternative for those who do not like shimmery bronzers. available in two shades: desert days (fair/light complexions) and desert nights (medium/dark complexions). 
05 | Cle de Peau Beaute the lip serum -- i've been looking for a good lip treatment for use at night. this might be a good option, but it is very new so i haven't seen any reviews yet. yes, this is a very $$$$. but i've read many good things about the CDP skincare line so i don't think this will disappoint. 
06 | Becca x Jaclyn Hill shimmering skin perfector in champagne pop -- a blogger's/youtuber's dream is usually to partner with a brand and create their own exclusive item. talented girl Jaclyn Hill does it with this beautiful highlighter. #champagnepop seriously, just look up that hashtag and you'll see the CRAZE about this product. great review and swatches on the hilarious and friendly neighborhood beauty addict @TheMakeupAndBeautyBlog. this won't last long, so snag it while you can.

stay tuned for more summer beauty faves,
JD

01 | David Yurman cable buckle bracelet with gold -- ok, first things first. i don't wear much silver, but David Yurman makes me want to!! i don't own any because of the hefty price tag! these are so pretty when they are stacked... with more David Yurman (gulp!). love this classic style with gold accents. 
02 | David Yurman  cable classics bracelet with diamonds -- (swoon). diamonds & bling bling in a classy, understated way. it's okay, a girl can dream. a similar but less expensive style here. (swoon).
03 | BaubleBar network cuff -- nowadays it is all about the stacking of bracelets, but sometimes, i really like the statement of a single classy cuff. this one is a great alternative to my athena grid cuff
04 | Miansai screw cuff in gold -- super spunky! i also really like the enamel color-blocked version, and the tarn cuff (thinner than the screw cuff).
05 | Vita Fede cubo eclipse crystal bracelet in gold -- Vita Fede rocks. her edgy yet classy designs always strike my eyes. 
06 | Kendra Scott maren bangle bracelets in gold -- can't forget about KS! this is the perfect bangle set for summer.

01 | TATCHA kyoto red silk lipstick -- TATCHA is an amazing skincare line that is inspired by geisha beauty rituals. i mean who doesn't want geisha skin?!?! Victoria Tsai (founder) does it again. here is the very first TATCHA lipstick a "universal shade that flatters all skintones." all TATCHA products are luxuriously packaged, this isn't an exception. the lipstick is a limited edition release, and only one order allowed per customer! a great review can be found on @MESSYWANDS. i guess you can never have too many red lipsticks...... 
02 | BaubleBar ice peak ring in gold -- i love the dainty-ness and subtle statement that this ring makes. (chevron is always in style! at least in my mind). also loving its midi baby below. 
03 | BaubleBar ice chevron midi ring in gold 
04 | Sisley Paris black rose precious face oil -- this is cult favorite and always has RAVE reviews. of course.. it also comes with a huge price tag. (one day Sisley, you will be mine!) the "moisturizing action lasts for 8 hours and the skin is intensively nourished and protected. with regular application, the skin's natural feel and suppleness are restored. after 4 weeks, wrinkles and fine lines are visibly reduced. the skin regains its fullness, and is revitalized and radiant." 
05 | ILY shoe addict tshirt in eco gray -- i love tshirts, including graphic tees. this is a super cute one that all women can relate to. 
06 | J.Crew 4" chino shorts in bistro blue --  my absolute favorite chino shorts are backkk! they should stop making these in every color under the sun. also available in 3, 5, and 7 inch lengths.  
07 | Stuart Weitzman the gilligan flat in black suede -- completely lusting after these after seeing them on @Wendyslookbook (who, by the way, is always stunning!).

01 | Forever21 fringed multi-stripe scarf -- the perfect lightweight spring scarf with a little fringe. 
02 | Burberry kisses lip color in No.05 nude pink -- the latest release from Burberry beauty (a line i am just now venturing into and love!).  i am really liking the muted pinks lately and haven't tried any yet, but this one has caught my eye. check out an excellent review by the beauty look book. another good pick is the Tom Ford matte lip color in first time. 
03 | Sole Society josephine large slouchy shopper in brown -- loving the look and shape of this bag. it is also available in blue and taupe and comes with a zippered pouch!
04 | bkr glass water bottle in sugar -- i carry my CamelBak water bottle around with me everywhere i go, and so should you! this forces me to drink plenty of water and stay hydrated... so no excuses! bkr is a sleek glass water bottle that comes in multiple colored silicone shells to make drinking water... a little more fun!?! also sold on Amazon.
05 | LOFT city jacket in muddy green -- i've always wanted a utility jacket. this is. THE one! 
06 | MANSUR GAVRIEL large wallet in flamma -- although MANSUR GAVRIEL is known for their bucket bag, i've been waiting for this wallet/wristlet/clutch to make a comeback, and here they are in a variety of colors. they've gotta be soft, like buttah.

02 | Burberry Beauty wet & dry glow eyeshadow in No. 002 nude -- my bestie has always told me that Burberry eyeshadows are the best. i never tried them... until now.. and gee. she was so right. i should have listened sooner. either way, this is the newest formulation. it has awesome reviews and swatches on a lot of beauty blogs including Temptalia, the beauty look book, and Natural N Chic Makeup. also available in three other shades which are all on back-order right now too!

05 | Ivanka Trump carra pump in light sapphire -- there is something about this bright blue suede pump that i am really drawn too, a bright and happy color for spring outfits. i can see this going well with the Ann Taylor relaxed trench (01 up there) and a pair of skinny jeans, or a white shirt dress?! also loving the red suede as well.

01 | CHANEL Le Jardin de Chanel blush -- from the CHANEL spring Reverie Parisienne 2015 collection. looking at the entire collection will have you excited for spring! the embossed cameillas in this blush are varying shades of light to muted-pink. so pretty.
02 | NAILSINC gel effect polish -- for my nailpolish lovers! these are supposed to deliver "a gel effect for salon-quality nails." what's great is that you won't need the UV lamp or the professional removal process. available in nine different shades. 
03 | Hourglass modernist eyeshadow palette in Atmosphere -- the latest from Hourglass (a brand i love). however, reviews seem to be mixed on these. Goss Makeup Artist gave it great reviews. Temptalia not so much. 
04 | NARS all day luminous weightless foundation -- for my foundation lovers! this is the latest from NARS. even though i don't have time for foundation... but i am always intrigued by them. beautylookbook.com gave it a thumbs up! 
05 | Maybelline lash sensational mascara -- although i try different drugstore mascaras, i always go back to my all time favorite--the full n' soft by Maybelline. i will be picking this one up soon! a "full fan effect" volumizing mascara. reviews look good so far. 
06 | Charlotte Tilbury lip magic -- FINALLY, CT has come to the US!! her line consists of amazing items i've read about including the infamous Filmstar Bronze & Glow face sculpt and highlight compact. i have yet to try CT since there is not a counter near me, the horror! but i digress. the lip magic is a rejuvenating lip balm that promises younger dewy lips. 
07 | Yves Saint Laurent spring couture palette in desir de jour -- this limited edition palette... is stunning. (swoon). love the color combination and really wished i could apply eyeshadow. i must go see this in person ASAP. the colors are described as, "a combination of rich camel beige and a seductive golden brown, two deep, warm colors that are clashed by the luminosity of intense pink and iridescent champagne."
08 | CHANEL stylo yeux waterproof long lasting eyeliner in ardoise 919 -- this is also apart of the CHANEL Reverie Parisienne spring 2015 collection. i have one this eyeliner in expresso (gift from bestie!) and it works great. ardoise is a steel gray... and i don't have a steel gray eyeliner... soo....
