No matter where you are – rain or shine, I have some fun fashionable finds. Before we see those flowers, we do have April showers.
So first, a beauty tip- mineral makeup is not only filled with benefits for your skin, but it’s water-resistant too! So it’s sweat-proof and yes, rain-proof. While my personal favorite pressed powder is from GloMinerals.com, you can also find Covergirl’s TruBlend, L’Oreal’s Bare Naturale, and more at your local drugstore.
Next, if you’re tired of winter’s wellies and rain boots, Dav has adorable alternatives, rain flats and high-top rain sneakers ($30-49; http://davrain.com/). And if the sun is shining, I’ve got THE perfect purse for your picnic! The Baggy Winecoat is a chic cover for your Franzia or other favorite ($69.95;emmohome.com). It’s literally a party in your purse!
Last but not least, everyone can get a jump start on earth day with a Bobble, a re-usable water bottle with built-in filter to improve the taste of tap water anywhere ($9.95; http://www.waterbobble.com). So fill up at water fountains and more. Made from recycled plastic, and is itself recyclable, each Bobble keeps 300+ plastic bottles out of landfills. The carbon based filter (the industry standard for removing chlorine and organic contaminants) will last for approximately 300 refills ($6.95).
Until next time, be sure ask me what weekend fashion, beauty, or buzz find you’re on the hunt for!
