Swanky Sweet Pea

There is nothing that I enjoy more than some “me time” while soaking in the tub. I feel like it really allows me to get away from the day to day rush , where there is nothing but peace and quiet, no interruptions no social media, it’s just me, myself and I. Okay maybe add some Coldplay,whose new album I’m loving by the way, surrounded by bubbles and candles and all the pretty girly stuff.Which leads me to today’s blog.
For as long as I can remember,I have always liked bath soaps, bubble baths and bath bombs. I love to collect my favorites and decorate my bathroom. I love to give them away as gifts and love using them on those must-have pamper evenings. You can pretty much buy bath bombs and bubble bath at any store but, if you really looking for a special treat, I would highly suggest my favorite, favorite store, Swanky Sweet Pea.
Not only are the ingredients insanely good for your skin and keep your skin silky smooth and not only do they happen to smell amazing but the greatest part of all is that they all happen to be shaped like my favorite desserts ! Considering that I have such a sweet tooth, I simply couldn’t imagine anything more delicious and yummy for the tub!

Let me tell you about Swanky Sweet Pea`s delicious desserts..There are so many yummy things to choose from…Sugar Whip scrubs, Ice cream soap bars, Cupcake bath bombs, Candy Apple bath bombs and Donuts! One of my favorites is the pink Candy Apple Bath Bomb whose candy smell really reminds me of the red candy apple I used to eat as a kid. The oils and salts in the bath bombs really make my skin feel silky smooth.

The cupcake bath bombs are so out of this world and they are so cute and colorful and smell like the real thing and the best thing about them is that I get to enjoy the yumminess, moisturize and care for my skin and rid my body of toxins without calories.

Pony Up

We are all constantly trying to find new ways to style our hair. We either cut it or we grow it, have bangs or layers, even color it to make a change but there are also so many other ways to style hair without being so drastic. You can curl it, straighten it, braid it or even put it up in a messy bun or tie back in a ponytail

This season we’ve been given a great new take on the ponytail right off the runway. “The Tiered Pony” is so classic and being seen on the likes of Blake lively and Heidi Klum and can take you from day to night. It’s very classic but can be edgy too. This was not the only ponytail that that got our attention – At the Chanel show in Paris, all the models had a very low maintenance chic pony with a variety of ribbons in between their hair.

It really takes just a few minutes (less time than heating up the curling iron) to do. All you need is a few hair ties, a hair brush, moose or hair spray and you will be on your way less in 20 min :)

Sometimes I forget all the fun things that I can do with my hair so I’m going to make an effort to change things up and be more daring. I encourage you to do the same.

With Love,
Candy Dylan

Red

I truly could not imagine life without Chanel. Let alone its vast array of lip colors. However, like the little black dress, a red lipstick is always essential. Throughout the generations red lipstick has always maintained its place in a women’s makeup collection. Luckily there are many different shades and brands to choose from. I most certainly have had a fair share of love affairs with nude colors, shimmers and more recently the pop of color ” If you haven’t tried out a red lipstick or not sure which red shade is best for you, I recommend that you test each shade against your wrist and whichever stands out the most is usually the best.
Also, listed below are four of my favorite shades you can try. Have fun!

San Francisco

I’m absolutely banana’s over the new OPI San Francisco collection. “Lost on Lombard” is truly a seductive red which I would describe as 1940’s glamour meets today’s modern chic. It’s the kind of red that describes a beautiful, confident woman and is perfect to wear with everything.”Keeping Suzy at Bay,” is another hit from the collection which screams out fun and adventure! These colors are not for the faint at heart, but there are other great colors to choose from.
