Dior Beauty Capture Totale Dreamskin Advanced Collection

This seasonal shift has left my skin looking anything but fresh.

I needed a little skin pick-me-up so I headed to the Dior Beauty Boutique at the Forum Shops at Caesars to check out their newly revamped Capture Totale Dreamskin Advanced Collection.

I had heard amazing things about this line through my beauty influencer circles and in magazines but no amount of research could prepare me for how fantastic these products made my skin feel and look!

Dior has completely reinvented their iconic DreamSkin products.

The new boosted formula, DreamSkin Advanced, instantly infuses the skin with greater perfection, correction and comfort. Firmer, smoother and longer lasting, the skin is enhanced and illuminated by the age-defying and skin-perfecting action of stem cells.

Seriously these products act like the most magical Instagram filters but in real life.

About the Science: Drawing on fifteen years of pioneering expertise in stem cells, Dior Science turned its attention to a rare reservoir – Skin-Derived Precursors – to restructure the skin’s framework and deliver visible and lasting youthful perfection. These dermal cells are fundamental to jumpstart the skin’s mechanical properties of elasticity and tone. The skin’s texture is refined, and the complexion’s radiance and evenness appear enhanced. 

Capture Totale Dreamskin Advanced Perfect Skin Creator is an INSTANT skin PERFECTOR that acts as a skin booster serum and also a makeup primer.

The formula is packed full of ingredients that help the skin’s texture, complexion, luminosity, imperfections and wrinkles.

One of the main magical plants in the formula is a Madagascar flower called LONGOZA. This flower is exclusive to Dior skincare and has multiple natural self-regenerating powers. Another powerful ingredient is the Ophilia flower.  This delicate white flower  helps regulates the inflammatory messengers that cause redness, limits the activity of the enzyme responsible for melanin disorders and encourages cell renewal. Dior Science has shown that Opilia acts on specific targets, such as dark spots and pores, and has the power to promote the penetration of other ingredients for a booster, in-depth action!

It leaves your skin feeling soft, silky and smooth which creates the perfect base layer for makeup application or a no makeup look.

Capture Totale Dreamskin Perfect Skin Cushion SPF 50

This product has been giving my skin LIFE in the afternoon.

Perfection, anytime, anywhere it’s a hybrid of skincare and makeup that visibly improves pores, reduces redness and eliminates shine leaving skin looking flawless. It boasts the same skincare ingredients as in the serum, so it works as both skincare and makeup. It nourishes, protects and enhances your skin continuously throughout the day.

Apply with the included puff anytime. The texture is ultra fine, and it melds into the skin as soon as you stamp the sponge. For the application, there is no sweeping and blending required, and it leaves no traces of makeup. The formula is so hydrating that it almost feels like I am spraying a hydrating mist, and it instantly makes my complexion appear more plump and dewy!  Hello real life perfecting filter!

Because I was hydration loading on this trip I also picked up the Dior Addict Lip Glow Color Reviver Balm. This sheer balm enhancers your natural lip color while moisturizing and protecting your lips. It creates the slightest rosy tint and is the most hydrated lip product EVER! Wear it alone, on top of or underneath lipstick.

Stuart Weitzman SS18 Collection

Stuart Weitzman SS18 Collection

Most of the buzz lately surrounding footwear brand Stuart Weitzman has been the SS18 ad campaign.

The campaign has made fashion history by featuring Gigi Hadid and Kate Moss, photographed together for the very first time. Shot by renowned fashion photographer Mario Testino, the images capture two iconic supermodels embodying the brand’s multi-generational appeal while showcasing the essential silhouettes of the season.

I, of course, wanted to get a first hand peek at the collection so I popped over to the Stuart Weitzman boutique at the Forum Shops at Caesars Palace and it’s even better than I imagined.

The Stuart Weitzman SS18 Collection marks Creative Director Giovanni Morelli’s second collection with the brand.  Morelli is the first person other than Mr. Weitzman himself to helm the accessories brand in its 32-year history.

For me it’s the beginning of an exciting new era for Stuart Weitzman.  Still holding true to their iconic classic style yet in an updated, refreshed and refined way.

The collection was inspired by the architectural sensibility of sensual curves and focuses on texture and details.  Curve details make a showing in everything from heels to straps, hardware and silhouettes.

Opulent satins, buttery nappas, suedes, exotic snakeskin and crystal embellishments highlight texture and flow effortlessly through the collection creating unusual pairings that are works of art- like the satin straps on the Botanical Jacquard pieces.  Two fabrics that on paper don’t work but when brought together on a shoe are pure summer magic!

Floral details are a recurring motif throughout the collection blossoming in every category from edgy metallic rose stud details on slides to pretty ladylike hand painted florals on python pointy toes and sandals.  How gorgeous are these!

Bold Vibrant Color is key for S/S 2018 and there is no shortage of that in this collection.  There is an entire wall dedicated to the season’s hottest love story: Pink and red.

..and then it was love at first sight.  My handbag loving heart skipped a beat when my eyes met this beauty, The Petite Harness.

Crafted from satin it’s a modernist take on the backpack.  It features a foldover compartment with an interior pocket. Its front satin sash is detachable. Wear it with a gown for luxe contrast or pair with trousers for a street-wear chic vibe.  The styling possibilities with this unique beauty are endless!

Spring Trendspotting at Las Vegas Premium Outlets North

Trendspotting at Las Vegas Premium Outlets North

I am a sucker for a designer outlet.

I remember the days when the only outlet shopping to be found was by driving a gazillion miles away, uphill both ways in the snow..LOL.   We would plan outlet shopping day-trips, but thankfully now you can find them located conveniently close to home.

Designer Outlets offer past season merchandise, re-issued popular styles from previous seasons using materials the designer already had and pieces that may have been labeled incorrectly or that arrived late to mainline stores and missed their retail window.  Some brands even make pieces exclusively for their outlet stores.

Hunting for a good bargain really get’s my juices flowing and I get some of my best deals at The Las Vegas Premium Outlets North.

Nestled close to Downtown Las Vegas,  The Las Vegas Premium Outlets North with over 40 acres of shopping and designer brands like Ted Baker, ETRO, Kate Spade, Dolce & Gabbana, Tory Burch, AllSaints, Marc Jacobs, John Varvatos and more! I have found some of my most treasured steals there!  A fab ETRO bag at a ridiculous 75% off 75% off, a steal of a deal on a John Varvatos suit for my hubby, and a head turning Kate Spade dress for under $100 to name a few.

Last week I hit the shops at The Las Vegas Premium Outlets North to show you how easy it is to find this season’s current trends at a steal-of-a-deal outlet price.

Let’s Shop!


Dark or light, acid washed or selvedged, cropped, flared, skinny or straight leg however you do denim it’s a must have for Spring 2018.  Pairing denim with denim used to be a no-no but for Spring 2018 you can go head-to-toe.  This trend looks best when you vary the shades/washes of your denim to create depth. My all time favorite cuts and best fits are from AG Jeans and this store is packed literally wall-to-wall with every fit imaginable so its easy to fall in love.

A bevy of graphic and patch laden designs, as seen on the streets flooded the runways this season. The trend’s not limited just to souvenir bombers and emblazoned denim styles anymore; now we see artful graphics on everything from bags to backpacks, sneakers and evening wear.  I am OBSESSED with this collection from Marc Jacobs.  For this Hippie Dippy Collection the designer collaborated with Julie Verhoeven, the multi-talented British artist who created art for Kate Moss and Primal Scream’s single, as well as for Nouvelle Vague.  Her patchwork prints including  pills, spray paint cans, rocket ships with tongues and eerily unblinking eyes adorn sweatshirts, jackets, tote bags, and box clutches throughout the collection, adding a dark kind of wonderful whimsy. The collection is almost impossible to find anywhere except at the Marc Jacobs boutique at the Premium Outlets North!

The old Spring perennial, floral prints are everywhere this season. Whether they’re in a patchwork effect, printed, embroidered or painted, this botanical trend is in bloom for Spring/Summer 2018.  Ted Baker always has the best uber girly Spring-tastic florals that look like they came straight out of the pages of a story book.  Right now all Dresses are an additional 30% off the already low outlet price!

Glitter, Glitz and Holograms are IT this season and no one does the perfect blend of glitz and glam like Kate Spade.  These fusha hologram effect bags and gorgeous glittery chain strap bag are the PERFECT pop of color to brighten any look this season!  I also found these perfect for summer camel graphic bags- aren’t they adorbs!

4. Tom Ford “Girls” Lipcolor. Everyone has heard of the legendary Tom Ford Lips & Boys Collection but did you know Tom Ford just released a Lips & Girls Collection too?  The 50 piece collection includes lip colors named after women Mr. Ford admires, from intimates to collaborators from around the world.  The girls limited edition collection debuts in clutch-sized, ivory and gold packaging all with that signature Tom Ford lip vanilla scent.  Designed to be worn on their own or layered with one another, each transforming color and finish amplifies a woman’s individuality while inciting an insatiable desire to try more than one.  I am OBSESSED with Isamya (the cool blueish/lavender shade).  It is meant to be layered with another shade to instantly transform the color some something so chic you can’t take your eyes off it!
