Another day, another desk mess! And yes, it all happens to be in black and white - my favorite colors.
For the few months, I've been using Gloss Moderne's Shampoo and Conditioner and it really CLEANS your hair. I can easily go a few days without shampooing because it's that clean. I love the super luxe formula which protects your hair and extends the keratin and of course the minimalist packaging. You can get 20% off with the code THEVERSASTYLE20
This week I've been testing out Immunocolgoie's skincare line. I love the Cleansing lotion which does a great job of removing all my makeup and leaves my skin soft and hydrated. My fav through is the Oxygen Treatment creme and the Eye Contour Serum. I definitely think the eye contour serum is helping me eyes look less tired. And they are super tired lately...
The Oxygen Treatment creme enhances exfoliation - which I am a fan of - and has magnesium sulfate which prevents skin oxidation by nourishing it with higher doses of magnesium and oxygen, and supports collagen and elastin production.
I also tried out some of Trestique's products. My absolute favorite is the eyebrow pencil. The formula is awesome and does such a great filling in your eyebrows while keeping them looking natural and consistent. I've tried other brands and some days I get it perfect, and other days I swear one eyebrow is darker than the other...
This Puzzle Clutch is from Tteyen and the designer Tanya was inspired from that one childhood game (you know the one I'm talking about). The puzzle on the clutch actually moves so the clutch is part functional - carries the essentials - and part entertainment!

It's been getting warmer since it's practically spring so my fur jackets are slowly getting stored in my overstuffed coat closet. But to satisfy my fur addiction, this top with fur detailing is quite quite rad. A little fluff on the sleeves is just too cool to pass up. I'm thinking it would look perfect with some cutoff shorts on a cloudy day too.
And if you have seen my instagram, you know I'm obsessed with white bags lately. This Botkier one is a wallet on a chain - another obsession. It's basically a huge wallet that fits all-things-in-the-wallet but the size of a clutch so your phone, lip gloss and compact get to play too. I love carrying this around when I want to put all my attention on my dslr.

With Spring slowly easing in - which kinda makes me sad cause I'm not ready for warm weather yet - I'm kinda into my pink blushy phase again - which kinda makes me happy. So it's bittersweet I suppose. But yes this lushy velvet hoodie is giving me life. Velvet seriously makes everything better right? The texture of it just brings colors alive - which oddly I love. And for less than $20 - how can you not?
I'm also into a fresh pop of white lately with this Henri Bendel backpack. It's such a beauty with it's strong structure. Definitely takes a backpack to the next level. I generally don't like backpacks because it feels casual to me but this one defies all that. So killer.

When it comes to jewelry, you may have noticed I love mixing in statement pieces with my classic pieces. (Actually, I think I do that in my outfits too) But a statement piece just goes a long way! And when it comes to accessory statement pieces, I've loved Noir Jewelry for a long time - especially the rings. I'm currently so obsessed with the Claire Spinning ring. It's quite oversized making it so eye-catching and I admit I'm always playing with the spinning ball. I'm also addicted to the Carla pave pyramid ring because who doesn't like a little shiny and a unique shape?
So pretty much since I got all these rings, I've been tossing them all on and actually enjoying the mix and match vibe of several statement rings. My original intention though was to style the different statement rings with simple thin ones to contrast minimal vs bold. - which I'm sure I'll eventually do.
I also love an amazing necklace so this Pierced choker necklace will probably be endlessly styled into my upcoming outfits. The choker/collar has just the right attitude that gets me excited.

I know I'm completely guilty of being on my phone way too much and draining the battery in half a day. Easily. AND I have two phones. Between social media, maps, emails, the camera, social media, emails - yah, #thatbloggerlife - I always need to recharge my phone but I don't always have my power bank with me. Sometimes I just don't have room in my handbag for those darn things. Or sometimes I forget my cord. #FAIL
But now, enter the Qbracelet. One part bracelet, one part iPhone charger. 100% convenient. It's a sleek bracelet that styles effortlessly with my accessories. Arm stack game strong plus I can simply take it off to charge my iPhone. And I love that there's no long cords to get tangled in. I can charge and hold my phone with ease to answer those emails and instagram. Yup, so no more of that "battery at 10% and low powermode" fear!

It's been a little while since I did a beauty review - I know, I'm super behind but have tons to share! First up is these two brands - Mun Skincare and Alima Pure.
Mun Skincare is an easy daily routine complete in 3 steps: Cleanse, Tone and Treat. Each product is meant to be more highly effective to simply your life and deliver. I love this idea for the weeks that I don't have much time and an eight step regime is just impossible.
The Cleanse really works and removes all my makeup easily. It's got a nice, thick consistency since it's oil based and I think it recommends eight drops but I use about four and that's plenty. I simply lather on my hands and rub on my face making sure I get my makeup off. Then I use a washcloth to wipe everything off. I like to rinse and wipe off twice for good measure. My skin feels nourished after and very moisturized.
The Tone has Hyaluronic acid which firms the skin and provides long-lasting hydration. I spray a couple times on a cotton pad use that to wipe my face. After this step my face actually feels like I used moisturizer but I actually haven't!
With the Treat, this is a brightening youth serum with Prickly Pear seed oil and Argan Oil which is suppose to works wonders to smooth wrinkles, repair sun damage and lighten dark spots. Luckily, I don't have many wrinkles or dark spots yet but the serum leaves my skin feeling very soft.
I've only been using Mun for about a week now but I'm definitely liking it so far!
Alima Pure is all about about minimal ingredients and maximum benefit. I've been trying out the Liquid Silk Foundation, Satin Finish Powder and the Satin Matte Eyeliner.
The Liquid Silk Foundation has a nice natural finish. It gives just enough coverage so it's definitely good for daily wear or for girls that like simple coverage. I like to finish though with the Satin Finish Powder for a more matte look. The powder feels very weightless - which I love - and I easily apply with the foundation brush. It's a nice and fluffy brush that really gets the job done. I do have to re-powder throughout the day since I tend to get shiny but that's not uncommon for me.
So the Satin Matte Eyeliner I'm still working on. It's a bit harder to work with for me than a regular eyeliner since you have to shake out some of the loose powder but there's a little snap cap to avoid spilling it everywhere but it sort of works against you. But once I have some of the powder eyeliner, I spritz my angled brush with some water and dabbed the brush in the powder to line my eyes. It's got a nice matte finish but I'm not sure if it's waterproof, which is a definite must for me. I think this would work better for me on the eyelid rather than the undereye. I do like that you can work some smokey effects with this.
