FOR THE PERSON WHO HAS EVERYTHING


The one gift everyone in my family will be receiving this year? A ChappyWrap blanket! I was given my first ChappyWrap at a luncheon a couple of months ago and after a week with it at home, my family was hooked! Not only are they extremely soft and cozy, they’re also machine washable and so easy to take car of. We’ve already taken ours to the beach, on a road trip, and we recently threw it on top of the boys for a Thanksgiving morning walk. They are the perfect gift for everyone on your list but I think they’re especially great for a college dorm room (which is why my niece will be getting one!). We also used a ChappyWrap for our holiday card shoot:)

I was never really a hat girl until I bought my first one from Hat Attack a couple of years ago. It was similar to this style and I lived in it last Fall/Winter. If you're looking for something to take you from city to country its perfect! I also love this style.

So when I received this one I was super excited. The pom detail is so chic and I love it styled dressy or thrown on with a pair of jeans and a leather jacket. My jacket is Theory from last year but you can shop the whole (similar) look below! Click here for my necklace:)

MY BEAUTY ROUTINE

IMG_9125 2.JPG

Hi there! Welcome to my first beauty post! Since starting Cindy Hattersley I've received so many questions about my skincare routine. I'm a big fan of the "less is more" approach and I have to admit, it's pretty basic. BUT the key has always been natural ingredients.  I've been using Tata Harper skincare for almost 8 years! She is sort of a pioneer in the organic skincare space. When I met her I was instantly inspired by her story - her step dad was diagnosed with Cancer and when she started to help him "detox" the products he was using, she realized there was nothing 100% natural/organic on the market. I love everything about her line especially the scents of her products, so natural and clean. 

About two years ago a discovered JuiceBeauty at Whole Foods. I was looking for an affordable moisturizer to switch things up a bit and I fell in love! You can't beat the prices (my antioxidant moisturizer is $39) and I find it to be really effective during the dry winter months. SO when I heard that one of my favorite websites/brands GOOP was teaming up with Juice Beauty I was super psyched. I bought this discovery set and I'm only about three weeks in but I LOVE it! Especially the face oil! 

  • I first tried this face wash when I purchased a Theory x Lola box for International Women's day. It was filled with goodies and one of my favorites was this product. I use it every night (in the morning's I just splash water on my face and re-apply moisturizer). The smell is very clean!
  • I have a thing for face oils....I used to think it was weird - how does applying oil to your face not make you break out? Now that I've been using them for years I'm addicted. I highly recommend this one and this one is my new favorite. 
  • The first skincare product I ever switched from mainstream to holistic was my deodorant. I once read an article linking aluminum containing antiperspirants to breast cancer and I immediately switched to an all natural deodorant. Disclaimer: The natural ones are NEVER going to work as well as the chemical ridden ones, BUT thats a trade I'm willing to make! This is my current favorite

SALE ALERT continued...

In my last Lust List post I talked about all my favorite post-holiday sales going on right now. The fun continues with this post!

I have always been a fan of high-low dressing. Unless you have an endless fund for shopping its almost impossible to wear designer high-end pieces all time. This outfit is a perfect representation of this - my dress is from Zara and was under $100. It's so comfortable and washing machine friendly which means I can wear it around Luke, worry free. My suede Moto jacket is from Theory and on major sale right now. Check out my other top picks for their sale going on right now. 

Theory I picked up this dress for next summer. Love the tie front. This lounge set looks so cozy and perfect for your next trip anywhere! I love that it comes with a travel pouch. If you're not into the moto style and want something a little more classic this suede jacket comes in gray or blush and is perfect paired with a t-shirt and jeans or a dress. Click on this sweater.....ENOUGH SAID!
