On my radar...

We all have one - that running list of things that should some extra spending money come our way we'd snap some of these items up real quick! These are definitely not need items, but more like want want want! Imagine how great it's going to be at the end of the year when your loved ones {cough cough my husband} comes to me and asks what I want for the holiday's - all I'll have to do is look back on my posts! 
Giorgio Armani Luminous Silk


This has been on my lust list for quite some time. I don't wear liquid foundation too often so I know if I bought it, I'd have it for a while. Obviously a little on the pricier side, but this may be a product that will stay on the list until Christmas!


Every single beauty blogger swears by this stuff - do I use a pressed setting powder no, am I interested to see if it makes a difference with the way my make-up looks, YES! If you want to see all the benefits to using this "cult classic" check out the link here

So hopefully this isn't as random as it looks, but once a year I like to get my pearly whites even whiter and I swear by Crest White Strips. Obviously this wont break the bank, it's just something I keep forgetting to buy! 

I've mentioned my love for the BB Brick before and just think this one is the best. You could use it as a bronzer or separately use the colors as eye shadows. I haven't re-purchased it in quite some time, but this one is quickly jumping to the top of my list. 

It has been dubbed the "facial in a jar" and from all the reviews over the interwebs it's worth the hefty price tag! I've had my eye on this for some time and will probably scoop it up during Sephora's Friends and Family sale in October...long time to wait, but probably worth it! 

I have a great brush set from Sephora, but the one brush it doesn't really have is a blending brush. Sigma brushes have been reviewed as some of the best out there and if I really was going to splurge - I'd buy this whole set


I've been seeing these blue-soled shoes popping around everywhere!! They haven't yet infiltrated the market like Tory Burch Reva's have and from what I've heard they are crazy comfortable! The fact that they fold up and can be carried in a clutch make them even more lust worthy! 


I am coveting a pair of Lulu Lemon Wunder Unders, but since those will remain out of my budget for the foreseeable future - these Athleta ones will do the trick, not to mention their on sale!! 


Since getting married I pretty much put a monogram on everything and anything! I have a really pretty gold plated necklace that I wear, but love the look of acrylic. There are tons of colors to customize it with too - I'm thinking Cobalt or Emerald! 

To really round out this list - we have been toying with the idea of changing up some things with our bedroom furniture. Last year we got a beautiful new headboard and this year I'd really like to change out our nightstands. Right now we have wood ones that make the room feel smaller - so I think white would help brighten up the space!! 

So it appears as most things on my radar are beauty related - which is fine by me as it's become a new hobby of mine! 

What are some products your looking at these days?

  1. I want a pair of Tieks so bad! I keep telling myself I'll reward myself with a pair if something good happens to me this year! I got a small thing of the Glam Glow and I wasn't hugely impressed. It did make my skin feel really soft but I definitely didn't feel like it was a miracle worker. Maybe I didn't use it long enough. Oh and mine dried up in the container which was annoying. Love that Bobbi Brown stuff too! So pretty!

  2. i had the nars powder and returned it :( it did nothing for me and i actually preferred the one that i was using (but ran out).

    as for armani foundation - i don't wear it but when i did one of those free makeup application things at the mall, i was blown away by that foundation. it's amazing. his concealer is my HG concealer and is the ONLY thing i will use to hide my dark circles.

  3. I love this list!! I am the same way - I have a running list of splurges that I really want! I absolutely love that west elm night stand! Most of my choices include purses...surprise! I need to try those white strips!

  4. The Youthmud sound like a good one, that may have to go on my list too! I love the colors in the BB Brick too.

  5. I actually found the GlamGlow on Overstock.com for much cheaper than Sephora (maybe abour $40?). If you google it it should pop up! I really want to try Tieks too. Everyone raves about them!

    ReplyDelete
  6. My Sephora has tiny GlamGlow bottles for $18 - I keep meaning to try it out before getting the whole bottle.

    I really want a new brush set. I've been looking at Sigma too, but that might have to wait until my birthday :P

  7. These are all great wish list items! Revlon has a great dupe for the Bobbi Brown shimmer brick, so I've been using that until I finally splurge and buy the real thing. I had never heard of Tieks until all you ladies started talking about them, and now I'm intrigued!

  8. Those Athleta tights look amazing! Hope you have the best vacation! Can't wait to follow along on IG.

  9. what a cute post, and i can agree that i wouldn't mind having all of these items as well! i got a new headboard last year also and really want to change our nightstands but i'm SO cheap when it comes to our bedroom (surprisingly? i mean no one sees it but us) and i wouldn't know what to do with our other nightstands which are in seriously great shape. i guess i could sell them but ahhh i dont know. i love that look of the nightstand you have above!

  10. Great post!! I'm really loving the double wear foundation by Estee Lauder. It has nice coverage and lasts all day. The best part is that it doesn't get cakey with humidity. I so need to try the Armani foundation but it's so $$$. I'm afraid I will love it tho!! ha!

    Best, Mree

  11. I just recommended the Shimmer Brick to a friend yesterday....such a great product! I definitely need to order those leggings since Lulu is out of my budget currently :(

    ReplyDelete
  12. I love this list!! I want to try a pair of Tieks, because I do have two pair of Reva's. I love how the Tieks can be folded and stored in a purse!! Say what??!! have a great week!!

    ReplyDelete
  13. I did my friend's wedding make up with Armani silk and it is like a dream. No lie. Worth the money. Of course I didn't buy it for myself yet. Also need to check out those shoes for commuting! Thanks.

    ReplyDelete
  14. Loving all of this! I want to try the Armani silk now, of course! loving the workout pants too! great picks, as always! xo

  15. Loving all those fab beauty products!! I might need to try that Nars pressed powder. I don't really use powder at all right now, but I think I probably should. I've also seen those Tieks around a lot and feel like I will have to invest in a pair for Fall.

    ReplyDelete
  16. Love it! I use that NARS powder and I love it because it gives my fave a glow. That Armani foundation sounds fab, but if I'm going to buy something from Armani I'd rather have clothes or a bag lol. Checking out those Tieks even though I love Tory. Athleta is great, I bought a swimsuit there last week and they have a lot of cute things that are just as cute as Lululemon but for a better price. I hope that you are having a great day so far! :-)

  17. Great minds think alike ;) I own sigma brushes and love them!! And those tights look crazy comfy!!

    ReplyDelete
  18. I love everything on this list as well! I'm currently wishing I could get everything from the Bobbi Brown surf & sand collection! I love that monogram necklace too!

    ReplyDelete
  19. This is a great want list! I have been dying to try the Nars setting powder. Thanks for the link also, because I wouldn't know where to start with a setting powder, but just like you I am definitely interesting in trying it out.

    ReplyDelete
  20. Such a fun post! :) I have heard great things about the Bobbi Brown Shimmer Brick and the Glam Glow; those might have to make their way into my Sephora cart sometime in the near future!

  21. i want that shimmer brick so badly too, and that mask is SO worth the money! i love it!

    ReplyDelete
  22. I LOVE Champion's workout tights, also (all spandex, all support ;) !). That brick is totally on my list for when my current Jane blush is done (will say it's a steal for the price). Is this Nars powder the same as the HD stuff that paparzzi pick up on their cameras when stars have it on hah?

    ReplyDelete
  23. LOL I love the name of the leggings! How fitting ;)

    ReplyDelete
  24. Oh YES my want list is never ending for sure. I love Sigma brushes, I have about 5 now and they're all great! I've wanted to try that Glam Glow mask too, but the price always freaks me out haha. I think it's going to be in this months Glossybox though!

    ReplyDelete
  25. I love monogrammed stuff. Always so cute!
    I'm scared of those teeth whitener strips - I'm afraid they make teeth sensitive & mine are UBER sensitive

    ReplyDelete
  26. I love the NARS translucent powder and the GlamGlow mask! They're both amazing! And I am DYING to try the Luminous Silk Foundation!

    ReplyDelete
  27. All beautiful picks!! I love that foundation but I like a tinted moisturizer (little lighter coverage better) but I have tried that before and it ROCKS! I will buy that Nars powder when mine runs out-- BET! :)

    ReplyDelete
  28. I must admit we are on the exact same page here- I use the Mac prep/prime setting powder (when I remember) and love it. The Bobbi Brown and Glam Glow? Definitely added to my must acquire list now!

    ReplyDelete
  29. oooh how pretty is that nightstand! we need new nightstands too, wood really drags the room down. i want to try that nars pressed powder, and that glam glow stuff. i'm happy to wait for october though :)

    ReplyDelete
  30. Yes to the Armani foundation and the Glam Glow mask! Both definitely worth their price tags! I can't believe this but I've never heard of the NARS pressed powder -- off to check out that article and probably add it to my never ending wish list!

    ReplyDelete
  34. I am coveting those shoes as well.... adorable. I like to carry as much as humanly possible with me at all times but shoes are always hard to fit in lol... perfect!!!

    ReplyDelete
  35. I'm trying to resist using Joe moving in as a reason to redecorate since hopefully we'll just be moving at some point not TOO far from now. But I kinda want that night stand...

    ReplyDelete
  36. I say splurge on the Lululemons! You will wear the heck out of them!

    ReplyDelete
  37. I want that mask, too! On their company website you can order sample packs for like $9 or $12 I believe. Then you could try it first! I keep meaning too but I always forget/am lazy! haha
