Spring is 15 DAYS AWAY!!!! Although it does not feel like it here in NYC.  I wanted to put together a list of items that YOU MUST have for the upcoming season.

  1. Mirror Pumps - From Jimmy Choo to J.Crew these MUST HAVE heels are practically available almost everywhere.  They look amazing with jeans as well as skirts. 
  2. Fun Jewelry -  Play around with pieces. Bangles, Cuffs, Statement Earrings,  just pile the jewels on!! I love the idea of tons of rings, and bangles - but it has to be done right.  If you have no idea how to start, look to pinterest or instagram for some inspiration. 
  3. Mermaid Waves - I love long hair for every season and I love the idea of transitioning into a mane of long waves that just remind you that Summer is not that far away.  Sultra Bombshell Cone Iron gives amazing results. The trick is to hold the hair on the iron longer to make a tighter more defined curl.  
  4. Sexy Scent - Lady Gaga Fame ( Macys Stores)  is an amazing choice.  I was not sure what to expect from Gaga but this is NOT the typical fruity scent most celebs attach their name to, I was pleasantly surprised.  Great for a night out and not too overpowering for day.  
  5. Orchid Lipstick -  Radiant Orchid is the official color of the year, and I just love LORAC Lip Luxe 8 Hour Lipstick in "Orchid". This lipstick is not only pigmented but also very moisturizing as well.  Looks great on darker skin tones.  Check out the swatch below : 

As you can see "Orchid" is very pigmented and vibrant on my dark skin.  The top photo is natural light and the bottom is flash.  This color works well with a nude soft eye color story.  

***Honarable Mention*** 
Although I said a Orchid lip is a MUST for Sprint , but I can't let go of my "PINKS" !!! I LOVE a pink lip still and LORAC Lip Luxe 8 Hour Lipstick in "Hot Pink" is amazing!  This is going in my list of favorite pinks.
