Current Obsessions - July Edition

Oh my July, you have flown by... My birthday is just around the corner to celebrate the 7th year of my 25th birthday (ha - I'm going to be 32) and July has had a lot going on. Yes, there's a separate post I need to do about what's going on in my life on a personal and professional level but for now, let's focus on fashion and beauty finds for July!

J. Crew FACTORY Camo Collection Tee
Despite life in the big city now, there's a part of me who's gone hunting, fishing, and might have a little bit of "redneck" left in her blood... This t-shirt has that southern appeal but still a bit of city edge to it. I'd pair with boyfriend jeans, heels, and a funky necklace - to truly make it girly yet boyish all the same time. On the flip side, I think it'd look equally fabulous with a girly pencil skirt and some pointy toe ballet flats.


Nine West Fontia Platform Sandal
I'm a klutz in heels fo' sure. Completely. And yet I tried these on at Nine West and I could shimmy my way around the floors in these and not feel like I was wobbly. Normally a stiletto like this scares the ever-living daylights out of me (sorry for the weird Southern expression y'all) but the 1.25" platform makes the 4.5" heel only feel like a 3-ish inch heel paired with some stability!


I've discovered the mascara combination that gives me lashes to die for... I've always had a makeup crush on the e.l.f. Mineral INFUSED Mascara but combined with Jordana's Best Lash Extreme - it results in that perfect amount of borderline drag queen volume paired with definition. I discovered the Jordana mascara through Nouveau Cheap and I haven't looked back! Trust me, Best Lash Extreme is pretty awesome on it's own but there's some sort of mascara magic when the two are paired together. I've had the most luck finding the Jordana mascara at either Duane Reed or Walgreens. I'm a happy camper that Ricky's NYC has started carrying e.l.f. but you can also find it at Target and some Walgreens!

And last but not least, I've launched my business with Nerium as an independent Brand Partner! I've always had an interest in skincare and beauty but I've always witnessed "meh" results with most skincare brands. I was blown away by the real science with the patented NAE-8 extract and the amazing "before and after photos." Here's just a sampling of some of the real Nerium results...
Your eyes are not playing tricks on you... Promise.
Yes, those photos are REAL and untouched - crazy huh? I feel like I look damn good for my age of almost 32 but I still have some leftover acne marks and skin texture issues I'd like to fix and the Nerium is indeed helping!
My new "secret weapon" in my skincare routine! Wash face, apply NeriumAD, and done...
So there we have it folks - while I'm going to be 32, I want to continue to look closer to 22 and that's why I decided to join the Nerium family as an independent Brand Partner. Want to know more about Nerium? Visit my website at www.LindsayEllen.TheNeriumLook.com or comment on this post!
