Each year the merchants of The Bellevue Collection offer up little treats for their shoppers.






This year, I scored a lovely studded wristlet from Bebe and a glamorous pair of fresh water pearl earrings (in sterling silver) from Ben Bridge Jewelers.


Want to snag some special swag for the holidays? Check out BellesVue and The Bellevue Collection on Facebook (and "Like") for a few gifts from Santa to you!

Hurry,offers are limited and you must be a fan of the page and show the confirmation email to the participating merchants to be eligible.





Thank you for the added joy!

Until next time~

The Key To Better skin

As a former BeautyStat Makeup Editor, I was recently given the chance to try out a wonderful new cleanser from Key West Aloe.





 Founded in 1971, Key West Aloe was the first company to use aloe vera as the base of all their products.

Now, I was a bit skeptical,as I have very sensitive skin,and knew I was taking a  risk in winding up with rashes,breakouts or worse,but this super gentle cleanser made with 30% pure aloe seemed to treat my skin just right. This plush,foaming gel pampered my skin with a light botanical scent,and left it feeling fresh and soft.


Vitamins A,C,E,and B along with amino acids and essential oils help re-balance moisture,while lemon peel oil works as a toner,and basil oil helps to make skin appear brighter,and who doesn't want an "inner glow"?

At my age, my skin type is normal (neither too dry or oily) but this would be perfect for those who have normal to oily skin as the lather goes deep to sweep away impurities.

In celebration of Key West Aloe’s new Gentle Aloe Facial Cleanser, BeautyStat.com will be offering a 20% discount now until Monday, December 1st, 2014 when readers visit the Key West Aloe site to purchase using the promo code "BeautyStat." Visit here> http://www.keywestaloe.com.  (the regular price is $16.50 for a 6 oz bottle)

This sample was provided to me by the folks at BeautyStat. Check them out for all things gorgeous at http://www.beautystat.com/

Until next time~

Fit For Royality...Treasures From Ulta (Mini Haul)

I found a bevy of hidden treasures at Ulta! For a very special price of $19.99,makeup mavens can rejoice.

This adorable train case in hot pink has everything a girl could want.

Inside are three tiers that will make you giddy!


 Tier 1 houses every eyeshadow you would ever desire.






Tier 2 are the powerhouses every gal needs;with lipstick,lipgloss,lining pencils,powder,highlighter,concealer and blush.



Tier 3 holds additional eyeshadows,brow powders,glitter top coat eyeshadows,and gel eyeliners.




And if that wasn't enough, a removable separate mini compact baked eyeshadow palette.









 I can't resist a great deal,or LORAC eyeshadows. This 4 palette bundle pack was such a steal, I was surprised to still see it on the shelves. I adore their shadows because they are smooth,silky,go on like butter and the color is so rich. The kit includes Queen,Countess,Princess,and Duchess and the colors will make you feel "royal."


Queen: A soft mixture of pinks from light to dark
Countess: Blend-able sunny shades from butter cream to a teal blue
Princess: These are the holiday golds

Everything from sleek and demure to the avant-garde was displayed along with a fun,playful nod to the currant fall outlook.

Vogue Front Row Fashion Show

I'm a little late to the party,but I wanted to post some different pictures other than what you've seen out there.

This event took place last Saturday,September 27th at the Regency Hyatt in Bellevue.

The looks this year were exquisite,and here I have posted the best of what I feel are wearable,everyday day to night looks, as well as a few special occasion dresses.

Enjoy!


From the opening look (Cara Crowley,wearing DVF) to the very last,this show presented a variety of both classic and ultra glam fashions.

The categories ranged from "Knit Necessities" to "White Out" and included "Flirty Femme" looks,as well as textured ,edgy, and retro. The final look was "Enchanted Evenings" which included some of my favorites from DVF,Cache`,and of course Nordstrom.

Until Next Time~
