Fashion Boutique Favorites: Bold N' Gold Edition

Hi everyone! Today has been a pretty relaxing day for me I have been focusing on some "me" time, and working on the blog while sipping hot cider and snuggling up with Tiger & Taz. Which are our two brother cats we adopted 2 years ago. If you have me on Instagram, you're likely to see pictures of the two brothers. I know what your're thinking, I am some "crazy cat lover" haha = ) Follow CLK Fashions on Instagram: Here! 

My favorite look right now is Magenta, Gold, and Baby Blue. The colors go so well together, I just love it! The Magenta colored pants makes it so that blue denim shirt pops!

Winter Skin Savers

 photo IMG_0329.png During the winter months especially in Minnesota, the weather can be bitterly cold and dry. This year especially has been soo frigid and dry we made our first purchase of an humidifier. It was a bit of a investment as we decided to go with a little bit more of a higher priced one of $100.00 (roughly). But it has made such a huge difference for my skin, and health.

Below you will find more skin savers that have helped my skin stay hydrated despite the cold months.

Estee Lauder
 photo esteelauder.png After showering I apply ESTEE LAUDER'S - Advanced Time Zone Cream to my entire face. This really is a miracle in a bottle (literally). During the winter months I apply it only once a day, and if my skin feels super dry later on in the day I will apply more cream to my when needed.

Why I love it: It fixes common skin care issues that come along with aging. Such as: lines, wrinkles, and dryness. It reverses all three of these problems!

I made my purchase at Macy's for around $60.00 for 1.7 ounces. It's a huge bottle, but the price might scare you away. Please don't let it! Think of the money you spend on tanning, which is hurting your skin, this is an investment of a lifetime! Take care of your beautiful skin. It's well worth the investment. You can also find this product online here at a discounted price by using PROMO CODE FEB to save 20% off your order here.

 This cream helps skin re-ignite its natural age-resisting activities. This is very important because as we age, our skin doesn't make as many cells as it use to it and begins to weaken and slow down, resulting in visible aging skin. + SPF15

VSPRO

Next up is VSPRO AIRBRUSH FX HYDRATING PRIMER. This is perfect prior to applying your makeup. It allows for your makeup to go on smooth, and makes it possible to blend your makeup. For me I use it on my cheek bones, and than apply my powdered bronzer prior to use. You can purchase this online here.

Clear Message

Recently I have been spotting the come-back of see-through bags. I never really thought I would like the idea of people being able to see what's inside my purse. However now more than ever I have let go of that thought, and have been really interested in some of the new trends for see-through purses.

Interestingly designers like Charlotte Olympia have came up with unique interchangeable inserts for her purses. This allows for color customization to match different outfits from your closet!

Some purses have even taken the look of perfume bottles which sounds odd but surely enough I fell in love with these designs. They are truly one of kind, unique, and stylish.

Check out the 'clear' message of the purses below!

Clear Message: Transparent perspex box clutch featuring a white checkerboard pattern. Inside includes a sleek gold and glitter zip-pouch. This way you can hide some of your personal items.

The Super Easy DIY Love Mugs

The other day I was out shopping around at a local craft stores trying to find some handmade gift ideas for this years Valentines Day... In the process I found some paint pens that are non toxic, water resistant and ideal for glass. Light bulb went off... And I thought what a inexpensive gift idea: {DIY} Handmade Coffee Mugs. While looking at quotes online I found that my favorite one was:
Mr. Right // Mrs. always Right ♥



This {DIY} project will take you roughly 45 minutes depending on how good you are at free drawing! 


So I give you The Super Easy {DIY} Mr. and Mrs Love Mugs:
Time: Estimated at 45mins
1. Pick out your paint pen colors: I used Gold Craft Smart Paint Pen from Micheal's for under $3.00
2. Purchase your coffee mugs I found 2 square mugs at Walmart for $5.00 for the pair.
3. Practice drawing your design on paper with the pain pen. This helps you get a feel of the pen prior to using on your mugs.
4.Once you feel like you have the design down, start drawing on your mug!
5. Bake at 350 degrees for 10 minutes this helps the longevity of your cups.

For a personalized touch add anniversary dates, wedding dates, initials etc.


Now wrap those fancy mugs up, and save them for valentines day, anniversaries, or a special occasion! Have fun with it! Enjoy your new mugs! If you would prefer to purchase the mugs I have a shop in Etsy where you can customize your mugs, and I can do all the work for you!
