My Paris Beauty Faves

I love beauty it’s not my fault
— Valentino
Aqua Di PArma Colonia

One of my favorite things to do in Paris is shop in the pharmacy's that are scattered on every corner of the city searching for fun new beauty products. Here is what I brought back.

Topicreme Lip Balm


This balm is so soft and has no off taste or anything like that. I will be sad when I swipe the last drop out of this one (or I will just have to hop a plane)

Avene Shaving Mousse

I absolutely hate shaving because my skin is so sensitive and is prone to razor burn, for some reason my face likes this one so I grab it every time I visit. They are also starting to sell this at those bigger Walgreen's locations with the huge beauty department.

Gouttes Bleues Eye Drops

These eye drops I simply cannot live without. They save me every morning when I had too much wine the night before, ok so every morning...

Simple Style Upgrades We Can All Try: Scarves

 The first time I visited Paris I realized the incredible style power of a simple scarf. Striped, dotted or textured this single accessory can take your jeans and a t-shirt from target run looking to street style fashion blogger. Anything that is an easy throw on while you are walking out the door solution is right up my alley. Here are some scarves I was featuring on my recent trip to Paris (yes I will probably be saying "recent" for the next year)

The first time I visited Paris I realized the incredible style power of a simple scarf.

Simple stars to see the sights of Versailles.

The scarf is crazy long and wraps up multiple times to really keep me warm, or at least looking french enough to pass...

If you are inspired I found this simple gray scarf at H&M for $12.99

What are some of your simple style upgrades?
