Although I am not heading Back To School (although getting an MBA has definitely been on my mind lately…but that is for another time haha) one thing I do love to do is to switch over my beauty products from summer to fall so I suppose I am getting my Back To School beauty buys to start the year (and fall) off right! I want that summer glow and smooth skin to last me well into the winner and with these products, it is sure to do so!
To start…smooth skin. With Schick Disposable Razors from Walmart, that great summer time skin can last year round. I always was a fan of swapping out my razors often. Nothing feels better on your skin than a new, fresh razor to get that close, clean shave without any bumps, marks or bruising (which was often a problem for me in the past — but not anymore).
I love how these disposable razors have that extra added hydration my skin needs and are ideal for sensitive skin like mine.
My other fav beauty products consist of my all time favorite, BB Cream from La Roche-Posay (this stuff is literally the best thing I have ever come across) it honestly hides any and every little blemish and red mark, leaving my skin looking flawless all day long.
In honor of Back To School prepping, Walmart has an exclusive offer for you on Schick razors for guys or gals — Buy One Pack, Get One Free! (you know how much I love a great deal + coupons) Check it out HERE!
P.S. Schick is running a contest now where you can Enter To Win $10,000 towards you college tuition! Umm WOW! Enter (if I was in school I sure would!) 🙂
So LWD (little white dress) season is almost over…and every season is ideal for a LBD (little black dress), so I think that makes fall the perfect time for the LGD…Little Gray Dress…yup I am starting a trend…just wait for that to catch on 😉 Other than sharing my love for this easy and casual dress from Liz and Honey (pretty much my favorite online boutique at the moment btw — loving all the abbreviations today haha) I am also excited to share that I will be hosting the Fall Preview Party on the Poshmark App tonight! I love a good party + making money while doing it…don’t you? I am a tad of a Poshmark addict and if you have no clue what I am talking about read on…because it’s a perfect way to clean out your closet + make room for great fall styles you are lusting after!

Red…White + a little F R I N G E! Those are the vibes I am feeling for the upcoming Labor Day Weekend! Other than all of the great sales (which I will be sharing my favorites from of course – stay tuned :p), I love how Labor Day weekend is the last time to really stand out in your summer time favorites (although, knowing me I will still be wearing my summer favs well into fall haha). I figured prepping for the weekend is the perfect time to show my patriotic side once again! I am kinda in an ‘I Love America‘ state of mind after seeing Kid Rock over the weekend + his amazing tribute to working class America…all of the soldiers, marines and more who fought + continue to fight each and everyday to make sure we are ‘Born Free‘! ICYMI, I am a HUGE Kid Rock fan and was in love at his concert Saturday night…I was supposed to see him 4th of July weekend back in NY (before I knew I was moving) but then I moved here to LA a month before the concert + missed going 🙁 So seeing him Saturday literally made my summer <3Anyways…on a side note, I should probably get to breaking down this amazing outfit which is fully stocked on color + feminine details…just what I like! My blue pleated high low skirt is from LoveShoppingMiami.com whose website makes me instantly happy because it is filled with fun colors, prints + styles fit for any season! I paired it with a simple white crop top because I mean come on, doesn’t the skirt just speak for itself?
My fav part of this outfit is of course are these red fringe heels from AMI Clubwear…they are instantly becoming my go-to shoe for a night out because the fun fringe detail and the red hue can really spice up any look 😉 I guess you can say they are red hot haha!
Accessories I kept simple as well and went for a metallic theme…got to love a little glitz. I decided to give this silver Michael Kors watch a little love since I haven’t worn it in such a long time along with this metallic silver clutch from Carolinna Espinosa (similar styles here + here).
And it wouldn’t be a summer outfit without my mirrored Ray Ban sunnies right? hehe I’ve seriously worn these All Summer Long (like my Kid Rock reference sprinkled in there haha)
Isn’t the best feeling in the world when you are having a good hair day…you know, when your hair has the perfect amount of volume, bounce + shine and is actually able to last the whole day? Yea…well thanks to Amika hair care and pro tools…that day is everyday! I am always game for trying new products, especially if they promise me fab hair in under an hour that actually lasts all day (yup then you have me sold).
Shop White Cold Shoulder Tops
Amika sent me some awesome products that I am for sure in love with (heck the Perk Up dry shampoo they sent me I already ran out of because I am that obsessed with it :p). They actually sent me the perfect after product to dry shampoo…Dry Conditioner! This is the first time I ever heard of it but I totally love it and it smells delicious (is sniffing my hair periodically throughout the day awkward? haha) These products are perfect for me because I try not to wash my hair everyday A) So it prevents my hair from getting to flat + B) Because it’s actually not good to wash your hair everyday (I learned this back when I was a receptionist at a hair salon on Long Island during my college years).
When I use dry shampoo + dry conditioner a day after washing my hair, it gives my hair a little texture, making it ideal for when I want to curl my hair…which brings me to the next amazing Amika product I tested out, the Amika Switch Kit which comes with this awesome interchangeable curling wand that you can swap out the heads for a curling iron whenever you feel like…all the parts match with the swivel base and it is super easy to put together + take apart.
It actually took me a while (and my roommate’s help) to teach me how to use a curling wand haha I have always been traditionally a curling iron kind of gal for fear of burning my fingers, but it is actually pretty easy to do and quick once you get the hang of it. So it’s awesome that whichever way you are most comfortable, Amika provides an option most suiting for you and your hair!So I had to share this little outtake from this shoot…Ali told me to make a funny face, well here it is haha #LongHairDontCare duh 😉
Now after the curling process comes what you need to finish off the look and have your hairstyle hold all day…Amika’s Touchable Hairspray! It has great hold without that ‘crunchy,stiff‘ feeling some hair sprays give you.
Happy Monday and as you can see MissyOnMadison.com got a little face lift over the weekend and is new + improved! I hope you all love it as much as I do <3 It took me forever to really pin point what I was looking for and then actually go ahead and do it (lot’s of YouTube ‘how to‘ videos + questions to my web design friends haha). But it’s here and I am totally thrilled about it! Something else I am a tad bit thrilled about…slowly showing off my favorite looks for fall! This Tie Dye dress is the perfect summer to fall transitional piece and I am so glad my gal pals over at Ooh La La boutiques (from my hometown in Long Island) sent me this cute number to kick off my fall style posts!
I can’t believe it is already Back To School season! I may have been out of school for a few years now, but one of the most exciting parts of starting a new school year was the Back To School shopping and making a great first impression. The first day whether it be for a new job or for a new college semester requires looking tip-top and truly shining (first impressions are in fact everything right?)
Well to this sentiment, I am comparing the prepping for Back To School jitters to my first day at my new job here in LA. I literally didn’t even have a place to live yet (I was staying with Kristi) and I was living out of suitcases out of the back of my trustee Jeep Wrangler. I was so nervous about adjusting to life in LA and also looking great for my first day…so naturally being in warmer temperatures I wore a dress for my first day and wanted to make sure my legs with touchabley smooth…Schick Quattro for Women became and still is my go-to when it comes to disposable razors!When moving, my skin got a little wacky and I was getting red bumps on my legs. After talking to a doctor they suggested I switch to a disposable razor brand and that brought me to discover Schick Quattro for Women. The blades get a close shave without causing irritation and there are various kinds for sensitive skin and more!In honor of Back To School prepping, Walmart has an exclusive offer for you on Schick razors for guys or gals — Buy One Pack, Get One Free!

After being in Cali for a little over 2 months now, I have officially found one of my favorite spots…Malibu 😉 Naturally I would have champagne wishes + caviar dreams about one of the most expensive areas of Cali haha So while I may not be able to afford living there just yet (trust me, the second I do…Madison Malibu will be finding me my dream home :p I hope you guys are as obsessed with MDLA as I am because I new season is just around the corner and my boo thang Madison is making an appearance a few times throughout the season!) Anyways I digress…I popped over to Malibu with Ali to shoot this head to toe affordable look where each piece retails for $80 or under! Ummm AMAZING right?
