If there's anything better than prêt-à-porter fashion it's prêt-à-porter makeup. For those who aren't familiar with this industry term, it's english translation means ready to wear. As a girl on the go I definitely try to save time on my beauty routine by using a palette. All of the shades of eyeshadow, blush, or lipstick/gloss compliment each other so you can mix and match to your hearts content and not worry that 'that doesn't go with that.' Oh beauty junkie problems….
My palette prayers are constantly being answered at b-glowing.com, especially with the latest arrival of Jemma Kidd's Bio Mineral Essentials Kit. Coming in two color palettes, rose or chocolate each palette has three versatile eyeshadows, a blush and lipstick contained in a chic, hand bag friendly compact. I love that all of the shades leave a soft pearl finish for a luminous and healthy glow. The Bio Mineral Essentials Kit also includes a double ended define and shadow brush, making touch ups on the go a breeze!
b-glowing was 'goop'ed again. For those who don't know what that four letter word signifies, it's Gwyneth Paltrow's lifestyle e-newsletter GOOP! This stylish lady is known for her amazing taste and overall girl next door, heart warming personality. I love the fact that she whole heartedly admits she's no expert in doing her own hair and makeup and looks to her entrusted group of hair and makeup artists to get her beautified for red carpet events. Not that she really needs any help in that department.
We all could use a little professional insight when it comes to doing our hair. The best blow dry I've ever gotten has been when I leave frizz free and full of bounce after a visit to the hair salon, however recreating it a few weeks later isn't without it's struggles, snags, and sweat. Achieving a polished hairstyle normally comes from using the right mix of tools and products. We were lucky to be featured in the Goop newsletter a few weeks ago with Gwyneth's London based hairdresser George Northwood. He demonstrates step by step how to create three of our favorite hairstyles: the blow dry, luscious curls, and beach wave using products from b-glowing.com!

Do you ever smell a perfume and think, "that reminds me of Paris" or "this smells like falling in love for the first time"? I personally love fragrances that are created with a story and thought process behind it. This makes choosing yours a lot more personal when you can identify with it. One of our latest perfume arrivals that really has great thought behind all their fragrances is Ineke Parfums. The genius or "nose" behind the brand is founder and owner Ineke Ruhland and all of her scents aim to evoke stories of romance, nature, chemistry and courage.
One of the factors I notice before making a final purchase of a perfume is not only the scent but the perfumes packaging design. You always feel a little more special seeing a beautiful bottle on your vanity and knowing your favorite perfume can also serve as a beautiful show piece. Each perfume is presented in clear cylindrical glass bottles with a chic square top. One of my favorites is Ineke's Gilded Lily which is described as a "Shakespeare meets manga" scent with fruity highlights of gold band lily of Japan, Rhubarb and Patchouli.
