Cold Weather Gear!

6 Jan

While on the topic of the insane winter chill occurring in Chicago-

In November I was traveling in NYC and stopped by the Uniqlo store in Soho.  Uniqlo makes some of the BEST cold weather gear – at affordable prices.

Their HeatTech line is excellent for creating a base layer when dealing with extreme weather.  I have a couple tank tops, leggings and tights and I have been living in them this winter.

The fabric is moisture wicking and retains body heat.  I guess the oils they weave into the fibers actually work with your own perspiration to help warm you.  Sounds expensive right?  Nope.   The socks are amazing.  They work almost as well as my incredibly thick SmartWool socks and feel like any normal, thin crew sock.  It’s space age magic! 

The Heattech leggings and tights are thin.  The leggings are see-thru so don’t expect them to cover your bum.  They are SUPER soft and cozy.  Great for wearing under pants or under skirts.

Thanks to Uniqlo, I now own the best leggings I have ever owned (aside from Black Milk, but that’s Apples to Oranges.) The Uniqlo Legging Pants are freaking amazing.  They look like jeans, but you can go to an all-you-can-eat Brazilian Steak House and still be comfortable wearing them after gorging yourself.  Trust me.  I know things.  Also, they are under $20.Image

The launch of this new palette is super exciting!  I love my Naked 2 palette and use it several times a week.  The colors are beautiful and have excellent staying power and the case is strong enough that I have taken it on two vacations.

Here is the new Naked 3.  It has more rosy hues than the previous Naked palettes but all the shimmer you have come to expect.

It retails for $52 and consists of 12 colors, a mirror and a brush.

Beautiful Strong Nails

1 Jul

Ok so I have extreme nail envy due to seeing Anna’s amazing nails Saturday night.  Her and I have similar breakage and peeling issues, or at least we did.  She started using Nailtiques protein treatment and now her nails look like she has a gel manicure.  NO JOKE.

ImageI woke up Sunday morning and the first thing I thought was “I need Nailtiques asap” so I went to Ulta, used my $3.50 coupon and bought the heck out of it.  Here are some reviews: CLICK.  It’s $9.50 for the .25Oz and $17.50 for the .5oz.  Not cheap, but worth it if your nails break and peel like mine.

My nails already feel stronger!  It’s nuts!!!!  You need this.  -kassi
