I am so excited to be one of four Chicago bloggers introducing Sine Qua Non Salon‘s Desperate Measures campaign! Sine Qua Non is one of my favorite salons here in Chicago so I jumped at the chance to participate and to spread the word to all of my friends and readers about their new monthly FREE MAKEOVER contest! Read on to learn all about the salon and services, to see our photo shoot, and to enter to win!
In my role as Beauty Contributor for one of the top Chicago blogs, ChiTown Fashionista, I get to test and try out a lot of different products and services around town- including my most recent adventure to get a manicure while at the airport. It was awesome – and SO relaxing. If you’re traveling for Memorial Day weekend or planning your summer vacation already – think about saving your mani-pedi for when you’re waiting for that flight!

Hey y’all! Thank you so much for such a great response to my Skincare Essentials Part 1 post. Let’s keep going on our skin journey together to talk about all of the fun auxiliary things you can do to further improve its quality and brilliance. Today we’ll explore masks, polishers, and facials. Oh – and of course there’s the skin on the rest of your body to take care of, too!
You may remember that one of my New Year’s resolutions was to take good care of my skin in 2015. I’m psyched to tell you that I have been sticking to it, and I want to share with you what I’ve learned, tried and am doing to finally give my face and body the nourishment they need. It only took me 32 years but, hey, better late than never! Today let’s get educated about all the different steps you can take and all the different products you can use to get a glowing complexion. Read on for Belle’s skincare essentials!
Two days ago we discussed a multitude of ways to save money while looking stylish and beautiful. Today, let’s discuss when to splurge. There are very few things I will spend full price on but they do exist; and I will spend the money for the right thing. For me right now, the ‘right thing’ is my skincare, and my hair style. Leading up to 2015, I realized that I wasn’t getting any younger. In fact, I was rocket-launching, full-speed-ahead into my 30s with aging skin and dry hair that looked bad all the time. HELL. NO.
Lately I’ve given thought to where and what my money is going towards – this business of constant beauty maintenance and dressing well can really start to cost a fortune. And while I do believe there are things to splurge on, I’ve also found a number of ways to save money and spend wisely on nice clothing and good beauty services. I’d like to share those with you today!
