Summer Whites

Today I am wearing a beautiful delicate lace dress from Goodnight Macaroon. This dress is by far one of my favorite items in my closet. I love the lace and the cut of the dress, I mean, how cute are the sleeves?!

KROMA Makeup – Product of the Month

K logo

I am so excited to share with you today a luxury makeup brand, KROMA Makeup, based right here in sunny Florida!
KROMA means ‘color’ in Greek – founder & celebrity makeup artist, Lee Cristou, using her over 20 years of experience, has hand crafted all of the shades and personally made all of the organic formulas for the wide range of products KROMA has to offer. KROMA Makeup is ideal for any skin type/color and any age.

Be sure to follow KROMA on Facebook +Twitter + Instagram!

KROMA’s motto is NATURAL-TRENDY-LIMITLESS.
Be Radiant. The Essence pure natural botanicals and minerals, all organic.
The Philosophy is: make up with essential elements to moisturize, protect and enhance your skin. The Inspiration limitless color. The Experience the full spectrum of KROMA.

I had the pleasure of meeting Lee and her team back in December of last year. The team came in to our office and did all of the ladies makeup for our annual Christmas party.  (see post here)

Each month, I will feature a different product from KROMA, and give you my honest opinions on the product. This month I am featuring KROMA’s  Botanical Tinted Moisturizer, an absolute summer beauty must!

Botanical-Foundations-category-461x461
KROMA Tinted Moisturizers are botanical, oil-free, and contain SPF 20! Stays on and covers better than your traditional tints on the market.

I stopped by the studio (located just minutes from I4 in Maitland) last week to find my perfect color match, Mariah matched me to a shade called ‘nude’. KROMA has the capability in-house to completely create a new shade, just for you – if one of their existing shades does not match your unique skin tone perfectly.

KROMA is offering my followers a special $10 store credit! Use code ‘whatmeganlikes’ at checkout online, or follow KROMA + myself on Facebook/Instagram/Twitter and shoot them an email letting them know you did so to receive your $10 credit!

Travel size tinted moisturizer is $30 and refillable for a 10% discount if you bring back the empty bottle

After my consultation at KROMA’s adorable studio, I was so excited to try this new-to-me product! I am not one to like a heavily made up look – and like to feel like my skin can breath – even while wearing makeup. With that being said, I was so happy to discovery how truly lightweight this tinted moisturizer is! After testing out this product for over a week, I can say it is now a staple in my daily routine.

20150712_07331720150712_07342020150712_073502I have pretty fair skin, and was so happy with how well this shade matched my skin tone! Using 1 pump, I apply the lightweight, breathable tinted moisturizer formula all over my face using a sponge applicator. After the moisturizer has been applied,  I use concealer on any trouble spots and under eye circles, and finish with a very light dusting of my powder foundation. The staying power of this tinted moisturizer is outstanding, it also contains SPF to protect my skin from harmful UV rays! I love the illuminating effect this tinted moisturizer has on my skin. Perfect for all you on-the-go, out-the-door beauty babes, hiding little imperfections flawlessly!

Travel size tinted moisturizer (pictured above) is $30 and refillable for a 10% discount if you bring back the empty bottle.

KROMA was featured at the OSCARS, EMMYS, TV LAND AWARDS, KENTUCKY DERBY, INSTANT BEAUTY PAGEANT, MISS CALIFORNIA PAGEANT, I-VILLAGE, NEW BEAUTY & ORGANIC SPA MAGAZINES, THE BACHELOR, NY & MIAMI FASHION WEEK, SO YOU THINK YOU CAN DANCE!

Stay tuned to see which must-have KROMA product is featured next month!

Side Braids + Neutrals

Happy Wednesday friends!

Today the high is going to be around 99, but will feel like 102. With that in mind I definitely wanted to wear my hair up and out of my face. I opted for a super easy and chic side braid – this cute hairstyle takes less than 3 minutes to achieve! (thinking about doing a tutorial – thoughts?)
IMG_20150624_085934I wore this beautiful white tank with an open back from Lavender Boutique and some light colored dress pants from the Loft.
20150624_024953-01This gorgeous blush handbag is from Target (reminds me of Kate Spade)! I have been eyeing it since it came out a few months ago but didn’t want to spend $40 (because lets face it, no one needs a new handbag). I went into target yesterday to grab a few items and spotted this beauty – the last one they had – on clearance for under $20! I knew it was meant to be!

Happy Tuesday friends!!

I got this adorable Rebecca Minkoff ‘Leo’ clutch  in Electric Pink at Nordstrom Rack for an absolute STEAL! Over 75% off retail! Score!! I styled this cute clutch with a bright summery top and a black pleated skirt. Unfortunately I have to cover up my tattoo while at work, so stocking were a must.

Did someone say flamingos?!

Such a fun look! I got so much love and so many questions about the flamingo top I wore yesterday, I wanted to do a quick post about it!

Target Beauty Box

I have ordered a few of Target’s Beauty Boxes and thought I’d share my thoughts on the current two (mens and womens)! These boxes sell out quickly, so if you are considering ordering the next one for yourself, don’t wait!

Men’s Box (Father’s Day box)

20150608_140205

Cost: $5

The Products:

20150608_135833

Each box comes with an info card and a coupon good for $3 off a personal care department purchase of $15 or more! (Awesome!)

The Razor alone is almost double what the entire box costs, making it totally worth it for me! If you are a Red Card holder, your box will ship for FREE and you get an additional 5% off!

————————————————————————–

Women’s (Summer Beauty Box)

Cost: $7

The Products:

20150608_140115

This box also comes with a coupon for $3 off a beauty purchase of $15 or more at Target. I was super excited to open my box and see the lipstick and nail polish shades! Both colors I will definitely use! A beautiful red lipstick called “Gladiolus” (smells great!) and “Energetic Red” nail polish. It appears that it is a variation of Fekkai hair care products that people are receiving, I am already a HUGE fan of the one I got and have been using it for several months now – it makes my hair silky smooth.

Overall I am extremely pleased with both boxes, great value and products!

Wedding season is upon us, and the folks over at Solemates have got you (and your feet) covered!
Solemates offers a wide variety of innovative products specifically for heels! They have created a heel ad on called a “High Heeler” that prevents you from sinking into grass, and helps ad balance for those sky high heels!
IMG_20150606_123912-01I was lucky enough to receive this generous care package from Solemates & wanted to share my thoughts on some of the wonderful products!

Buff (here) – This awesome product restored life to my black leather heels, they look brand new. *only $10!*
Blister Block (here) – Love high heels, hate blisters? This Blister Block stick is the answer. I have already purchased a second to keep at my desk at work.
Shoe Freshener (here) – Keeps your feet smelling great, all day long!
S.O.S. Kit (here) – Shoe emergency? This kit has everything you need. Great gift idea for bridesmaids!

“Slip over your heels to keep you grounded on all kinds of soft surfaces. They’ll also keep you safe from ankle-twisting, ego-bruising altercations with sidewalk grates and cobblestones all year round.”

I strongly encourage you to check out their full website for more information and videos on their fabulous one of a kind products!
