I’m so excited to share my Italist review with you! I adore beautiful fashion, especially the luxury kind, but I also think it’s super important to find the best pricing on the items I’m lusting over before I go ahead and bite the bullet. Enter, Italist.com! Try For Free, Here’s what makes them one of kind and what I found while doing an Italist review:

The Discounts – Italist.com provides a huge selection of highly sought after, highly luxury, highly fashionable pieces at 30% off on average! When is the last time you found your favorite bag and then could get it approximately 30% off! I always head to Italist.com to find great note worthy pieces. As a fashion blogger and an online business owner it’s a resource for keeping up my A game. How I started reselling my favorite products you can check here.

Fast Shipping! – This is a really big deal to me, especially when I’m shopping for an event. I hate not knowing if a dress or outfit is going to arrive in time. No worries with Italist.

The Choices – In my review of Italist.com I have discovered they have over 800 luxury labels. I have found they provide a larger list of designers than any other site I use to shop. Here’s a couple of my favorites:

Aquazzura (I’m in love with their heels and and the Italist prices)

Fendi (Check out the cute bag selection)

Prada  (A classic)

Self-Portrait (one of my favorite dress designers)

CHLOÉ (There’s a pair of high waist Chloe jeans I have my eye on!)

I often visit Italist.com looking for my key splurge-worthy items. How do you determine what a splurge worthy item is? For me, they have to be items I wear on repeat easily, or they have to be items that can be passed on to my daughter. On that list are: denim, sneakers, jewelry, purses, and an occasional fancy dress. What I really want to focus on in my Italist.com review is the chicest splurge worthy sneakers out there!

I’m so excited to get my hands on THE Golden Goose sneakers from Italist.com! They have the CUTEST designs, normally including a star on the side and some purposeful wear, kind of like your favorite pair of denim. My favorite part is their edgy vibe turning even the most simple sweatshirt and denim so much cooler. They take basic to effortlessly chic.

I also had fun pairing my Golden Goose sneakers with skirts and dresses. They are perfect for that street style look! To accomplish that effortless blogger-babe look or an easy street style vibe: 1. Put on your best sneakers and comfy t-shirt or sweatshirt, and then 2. Mix in a fun maxi skirt. The Golden Gooses I chose have a cute shiny rose gold heel that stands out just enough, but matches with nearly everything. As you can see, I style them up, and down, and all around. So there it is, exactly why these luxurious sneakers are IT! They’re edgy, unique, yet still match nearly everything in your closet, making them wearable on the daily and completely splurge worthy.

As I write this, I’m wearing them with black skinny denim and a gray hoodie! See, I actually follow my own advice! You can find these beautiful soles (see how I did that there hehe!) on Italist.com!

Traveling Skin care tip

Whether you’re driving to a family reunion, taking the train for a weekend getaway, or jetting halfway around the world, there’s no question that traveling is stressful. Trying to look good while you’re traveling is pretty much on the top of the stress-o-meter.

The good news: experts say beauty and travel aren’t mutually exclusive. With just a few travel beauty survival tips you can face your next vacation, business trip, family homecoming, or even that weekend getaway with a smile — and the confidence of knowing you could run smack into George Clooney in the coffee shop and not have to hide.

From flight attendants to travel-show stars, WebMD talked to the pros for advice on looking your best when you’re on the go.

1. Moisturize
Apply intense moisturizer the night before you are going to fly. This will help increase hydration in your skin before you’re exposed to the dehydrating effects of cabin pressure, says Risi-Leanne Baranza, editor in chief of Palacinka.com, a beauty and spa industry publication.

2. Forgo the Foundation
Skip foundation on the day of your trip, and instead wear only moisturizer. Before you land, add a tinted moisturizer for a fresh, healthy look, says Baranza. If you just can’t leave the house without some foundation, celebrity makeup artist A.J. Crimson says be sure to put on a primer first — a silicone-based liquid or cream that puts a layer of protection between skin and makeup. It will help foundation and blush last longer and help keep your skin from becoming dehydrated.

3. Mist With Mineral Water
To refresh makeup while traveling, never glob on more foundation or blush. Instead, use a mister of mineral water and add a dab of moisturizer, says Los Angeles makeup artist Beth Binder.

4. Blot Out Oily Skin
To keep oily skin from getting out of control while traveling, bring blotting papers or rice papers and dab the “T” zone as often as necessary, says Crimson. “You’ll dab up the shine and excess oil without stripping out the moisture, so you’ll arrive looking fresher,” he says.

5. Add Some Shimmer
Does traveling leave you feeling a bit green in the gills? Perk up a tired or sallow complexion with a soft shimmer powder or cream, says Joyce Carboni, founder and director of Skinsational Skin and Body Spa in San Diego. Stroke it lightly on the tops of cheeks, bridge of the nose, and lips for an instant pick-me-up no matter how tired (or queasy) you feel. Or use a combination of cream blush and lip balm to add color and moisture without dehydrating skin.

6. Skip Long-Lasting Lipsticks
To give lips color that will last through your trip, skip the long-lasting lipsticks — they’ll only dehydrate and parch your mouth. Instead, Crimson says, color your lips with several coats of a lip stain, let dry, then top with a clear gloss. Reapply the gloss throughout the trip and your lips will look “just-made-up” fresh.

7. Apply Lip Treatment Liberally
You can further protect your kisser by packing a lip treatment in your carry-on bag and using it liberally while traveling, says Silverjet Airlines flight attendant Danielle Easton. Her one flying “must have”: “A medicated lip balm, because it won’t rub your lipstick off and it keeps lips hydrated while flying,” she says. It also works on bus and train rides, she says, when high heat or air conditioning can also cause lips to feel dehydrated.

8. Chill Out Puffy Eyes
To reduce under-eye puffiness after a long trip, Pam Inman, American Hotel Lodging Association vice president and chief operating officer, says to put crushed ice in a washcloth and apply it under the eyes, you can also learn how to get rid of dark spots at renewalliance.com, before you leave for your trip. “It’s an automatic wake-up call that makes you look and feel immediately fresher.”

9. Perk Up Your Peepers
Watching back-to-back in-flight movies, or reading that paperback novel cover to cover, can also cause you to arrive at your destination with red, watery, not-so-attractive eyes. To avoid it, Los Angeles image consultant Allison Dickson, founder of TheA-List.com, says don’t forget to bring eyedrops. “They will lubricate and soothe eyes if you’re reading or watching a movie, and refresh and wake up your eyes if you nap,” she says.
