WINTER ACCESSORIES

Even though the cold makes me want to spend the day at home in my pajamas curled up with a blanket and a good book, there is something I really love about winter accessories. These additional pieces allow for even more fashion statements, a pair of leather gloves or my favorite the pom beanie make winter worth your-fashion sense-while. Above are a few of my favorites from SHOPBOP, they have an abundance of capes and ponchos to wrap yourselves up in all while creating volume and adding new dimension to your look. Be sure to check out the rest of their winter essential must haves, because glovesbeanies, and scarves are a great way to keep warm while still looking chic.

TOMBOY

SWEATSHIRT, OLD (SIMILAR) || CHAMBRAY || JEANS || BLACK BOOTIES || QUILTED CROSSBODY (SIMILAR) || WATCH c/o WRISTOLOGY (ON SALE!) || PEARL EARRINGS (SIMILAR) || LIPS: 'BORN WITH IT' BY MAYBELLINE || NAILS: 'HIBISCUS HAVEN 101' BY MAYBELLINE COLOR SHOW

When I find long lost sweatshirts in my closet this is what I do with them, layer them over a chambray and call it a day. To me this screams tomboy, I know what you're thinking, but I felt more like a tomboy shooting this look than I do in athletic wear so I'm sticking with the title. When I told Oscar, my lovely photographer that this was my tomboy look he literally laughed out loud and shook his head at me, which he does often. There's something about the blues and cooler tones that scream tomboy to me, but that's what I love about fashion that your own personal style can shift overnight, alter according to your mood, be influenced by color schemes and is a constant, never ending spectrum of possibilities. I can wake up in the morning craving blush and florals, while on the flip side I lust for all black everything, and some days it's structured, masculine pieces for the win. Today though, today I pick tomboy, and so it goes.

GLO MINERALS + GIVEAWAY!

(All c/o Glo Minerals)

With a new year of blogging comes new ventures, and for me incorporating beauty into the blog is one of them. Let me start off by saying I am no beauty guru, I wear very little product on a daily basis and I turn to youtube videos when I do feel that an event warrants mascara or blush. When Glo Minerals first reached out to me, I giggled, I mean me, make up, HA! However I was on the hunt for a new foundation so I thought I'd call it fate. Well it was, immediately I was impressed by their customer service, for someone who knows very little they made me feel like an expert and helped me pick out some great products. It was suggested that I try the Luxe Liquid Foundation SPF 15 in Brulee, to which I was hesitant, see my t zone gets out of control oily and I feel like liquid foundation does nothing but emphasize it. Of course the experts know best and sent me over the Loose Matte Finishing Powder as well, which I love but actually don't even really need because, they were right, the liquid foundation is like no other!

The Luxe Liquid Foundation applies flawlessly and is very build-able with the Luxe Foundation Brush, a flat top kabuki. I start off with two little drops on the brush and blend it all over my face, then I add one more drop to dab onto problem areas. I tested the liquid foundation with the highly sought after Beauty Blender, that I have happily used with other products, BUT did not like with this foundation in particular, the Luxe Liquid Foundation & Luxe Foundation Brush are truly a match made in heaven! I swear this bottle will last me forever, a little bit of product goes a long way and the result is a smooth, very light, full coverage finish. The best part about it is the SPF 15, being able to confidently go out knowing that your skin is protected and still flawless is a win in my book.

The Loose Matte Finishing Powder is definitely a life saver on those oily days, I apply a light dusting with the Luxe Setting Powder Brush, down my nose, at the top of my brow, and on my chin to prevent any extra moisture. It soaks up the oil and leaves you with a matte (not dry) finish. For those of you who follow along you know how much I love a good lip color (it's where I actually venture in the beauty realm) I got to try both 'Cabaret' and 'Spark' and love them both. Spark is great for everyday wear, while Cabaret is beautiful and elegant for a night out on the town or for a pop of color in my usually all black outfits. Most importantly, the colors last through meals and martinis and are very moisturizing.

This is the first makeup line that I have been able to go all day wearing without having to reapply or touch up. With other products I have had to mist or blot at some point to refresh the look and/or get rid of any extra moisture, I have not had that problem with my Glo Minerals products.

Now for the really good stuff! Get to it and try out Glo Minerals for yourself, use my code JASMIN10 at checkout and you will receive 10% off your entire order and free shipping! Also be sure to enter below for your chance to win the Luxe Liquid Foundation of your choice and it's perfect pair, the Luxe Foundation Brush!

FRIDAY FINDS



I'm not typically one for Valentine's Day, I think the whole idea of the holiday is a bit sappy and that love should be shown all year round, plus I hate roses! However since seeing the gorgeous Shanna in her pink and red ensemble over on Because Shanna Said So I have been all things red, white and pink! I've been on a crazy quest for everything pink for a few weeks now but with the red and white added to the mix I am officially Valentine's crazed and wanting everything adorned with hearts and embellished with a lipsticked kiss.

HAPPY BLOGIVERSARY!

   
   

One year ago today, on a whim to follow through with my 2014 New Years Resolution I wrote my first blog post! I started this blog as a creative outlet to embrace my love for fashion and share my passion with my friends and family; never in my wildest dreams did I think people around the world would indulge in my content. Thank you, thank you, thank you, to those of you who have followed since day one and those who have found me along the way, thank you. Your comments, emails and just general interest make what I do so enjoyable, I am so encouraged by your kind words. I could not be more pleased with how far Jasmin daily has come and I look forward to seeing all the possibilities it has for the future, I really hope you all will continue on this journey with me.

Make sure to stop by on Monday for a giveaway, and again, thank you.

JEWELED


BLACK COAT (SIMILAR) || BURGUNDY SWEATER, SOLD OUT (SIMILAR) || GREY TEE (SIMILAR) || JEANS || GREY BOOTIES (SIMILAR) || PURSE, OLD (LOVE THIS ONE) || NECKLACE || PEARL EARRINGS (SIMILAR) || LIPS: 'BORN WITH IT' BY MAYBELLINE || NAILS: 'HIBISCUS HAVEN 101' BY MAYBELLINE COLOR SHOW

Happy Wednesday loves! I am embracing the grey on this grey day and layering up like usual. During the winter I tend to hold off on the jewelry, and keep the statement pieces at bay since between the long sleeves and cozy scarves they tend to go unseen. However, an unclad v-neck tee provides the perfect canvas for a statement piece. Cozy knits and a jeweled piece can go hand in hand and can make a grey day not quite so grey after all.
