Princess Dominique Favorite Things List 2015

I’ve been cultivating a FAVORITE THINGS list for the past 4-5 years and this year is no exception. I normally share things that I fell in love with this past year and recommend to others who are looking for UNIQUE gifts for their friends and family members or even Secret Santa (you know, for those who participate in that sort of thing). So without further adieu, here are my TOP 10 FAVORITE THINGS of 2015 . . .

tajj

Do you remember when I told you how much I loved TAJJ cosmetic’s lipsticks? Not just the vibrant and glorious shades, but the consistency and the creaminess of the products and the fact that I’ve never used a product quite like it before? I even made a YouTube video about it [TAJJ Cosmetics Deja and Chic Lipstick] I’m not the type to knock other brands, but I will say that’s why TAJJ is on my favorite things list! Grab a couple of shade, heck grab all the shades. You won’t be disappointed! At $15 these are perfect for self-gifting! | TAJJCosmetics.com

LoveCortnie

Everyone who knows me knows that I’m a clutch lover and if they don’t they should. This here is a long standing product that’s been on my list for years. Well, at least 2 years. Love Cortnie was a blogger who created her own brand and has been featured in popular magazines including LUCKY to name just one. I love the spotted pony hair, it’s so soft and supple and it’s the perfect size to go anywhere you want to take it.  From $90-160 this is something that she is certain to thank you for again and again. | LoveCortnie.com

milk+baths

Day Three Bath & Body has always been one of my favorite brands. They have so many delish products. This milk bath is a must have. They help soothe, itchy dry skin, soften dry skin and smooth bumpy, irritated skin. They are filled with Milk (cleopatra knew) and a combination of botanicals, like Lavender, Rose petals, Calendula flowers, chamomile and more! For $7.50 each you can splurge on several combinations. | ShopDayThree.

prayerjournal

Every single year a book makes my list and this year is no different. Prayer is my weapon of choice and when Liela Marie Fuller sent me a copy of “Don’t Stop Knocking, Don’t Stop Seeking, Don’t Stop Praying, Don’t Stop Believing” I knew it had to be on the list. Even if you don’t know how to pray or get a prayer through for that matter this prayer journal will train you to write it down, attach a scripture and wait on the Lord and it even gives you a spot to write down the revelation. I love this! You’ll want to give it to everyone you love!  | Amazon.com

I am a total cuff fan so it’s only natural that I featured this cuff again even though I already featured it in our His and Hers Valentine’s Day Gift List. I just ADORE So Excessive’s “Love Collection” of cuffs and it definitely fits the season. The collection is available in gold, rose gold and silver and you can choose from the open heart to the word “Love” spelled out. From $54-58 this is something that she is certain to thank you for again and again. Get brownie points guys! | SoExcessive.com

deborahlippman

Deborah Lippman is a celebrity and fashion manicurist who has designed nail polishes for stars such as Lady Gaga, Scarlett Johansson, Kim Kardashian, Julia Roberts and Gwyneth Paltrow. Her shades range from nudes to glittery goodness. I love this shade called Candy Shop that is glittery in a bubble gum base shade. The other shade is Mermaid’s Dream and definitely catches the essence of the sea with flecks of sparkle. From $7.50 to $18.00 per bottle, these premium nail lacquers are perfect for the girly girl in your life. Get them here and here.

silkywraps

As a natural girl I’m always looking for something creative to do with my hair and a cute way to tie it up and keep it out of my face. The adorable array of products by Silk Wraps are excellent for this purpose. I love the reversible pieces like the tie pictured here. If you’ve got a natural girl in your life she’ll love this product, just log on and pick out a pattern. There’s a polkadot tie too that’ll make you swoon. She has an array of sleep caps and other hair protection accessories too. Browse and shop. I guarantee you’ll love it. | SilkyWraps.com

Fall Cute Boot Alert

It’s Fall, it’s time to throw on a pair of leggings and pair them with cute boots all day, all night, every weekend, go to the movies, go to dinner, put on a blazer and go to work and so on. Here’s my quick and easy round-up that won’t break the bank from some brands I totally love. And remember, when you buy quality (not brands that construct their products with rubber soles) they last and can be resoled season after season.

articburnishedboot

I love the fringe of the Arctic Burnished Boot in Camel. They come in other colors too but there’s just something about the camel colored suede and fall leaves turning colors that does it for me. Yes!

This Girl Is Anointed Tee – Grab One!

This_Girl_Is_Anointed_Tee

I love a tee. I’m partial to vintage tees but this one fits the bill. It’s VERY popular right now and the orders are coming from EVERYWHERE. It seems that all the ANOINTED entrepreneurs want one. It says “This Girl Is Anointed For Kingdom Business.” It’s comes in a soft v-neck and a crew neck too. Both have a slight curve and are made to fit a woman. They are very true to size and you can snag one before they run out!

Moschino Bear Bag

Moschino-Bear-Shoulder-Bag-2
When I saw this bag I nearly lost it. It’s so cutely juvenile that I’d wear it with my chucks and a summer dress. A bag is an accessory so that’s what I filed it under. What do you think? Yay? Nay? I love the cross body cuteness. You can probably dress it up but I prefer it for dress down occasions. Think of it as taking your favorite teddy bear with you when you go out.

The G’wan by Charon + Jypsea Leather Goods Mashup

gwan_jypsea

This past Saturday I was feeling quite stylish in a FAB romper from G’wan by Charon and a GORGE leather and lace belt from Terina Nicole of Jypsea Leather Goods. I’ve been excited to pair them together for a while now. Their styles mesh so well. I made the announcement online that it was inevitable that their styles would meet. I’m just sayin’.

There Truly Is a Bra For Everything

I received an Aerie gift card as part of my relationship with the Quality Blue Community. All opinions expressed are my own.

Just when you thought that your one “staple” bra could make do and go from dropping off the kids at school, to your 9-5 day at work, to running errands, picking up the kids and figuring out dinner and then occasionally date night and everything else in between, you discover that there is truly a bra for everything! Gone are the days of wearing the same sad bra under every outfit and trying to workout in it too only to find that it’s not giving you the kind of coverage that you need. As summer approached and my wardrobe expanded I found myself in this very dilemma, what do I wear under the cute spaghetti strap sundress or strapless sundresses and Aerie solves that for you. What I love the most is that their selections are old-fashion and stuff, they’re fun, hip and will incorporate easily into the trendy wardrobes that many of us already have.

aerieJust like fashion is ever changing every true fashionista should have a bra to fit every style she loves and Aerie has just what you need to stock your wardrobe with the best bras out there. Just check out their 9 Bras that Every Girls Needs chart above (see the full graphic and read more tips on Aerie’s blog). My absolute favorites from their charts are the full coverage that I normally wear under almost anything (and you’ll probably pick it as a favorite too), the demi, that I mostly reserve for date night with hubby and the “bare” that comes in handy for my evening and summer strapless outfits. This is definitely a style to choose when you still want major coverage. Oh and definitely the “sports” for my morning walks and sometimes runs!

I’d love to know: How many bras do you own? Which of these 9 are your favorites? Which do you really need to purchase but haven’t gotten around to just yet?

Thoughts on the Cole Haan Pinched Leather LTE

ColeHaan_PinchedLeatherGrey

Cole Haan has done it again, as soon as I saw these Men’s Pinch Leather LTE I called all the stores in my area looking to see if they had them in the store. Needless to say they didn’t but that that didn’t stop me. I immediately got on the phone and ordered two pairs the red and the gray. I am loving them, the butter soft leather uppers, and the comfortable lowers which makes wearing the shoe very enjoyable. I only wear Cole Hann footwear, and these purchase makes my eleventh pair of Cole Haan’s I now own. I continuously tell everyone about the Nike technology which Cole Haan has added to there products which makes me a happy customer. I am not a sneaker person, the thing I love about these shoes they can be casual or I wear them when I am going to work my ten hour shift at work. I will probably be purchasing the blue and the tan later on.
