Dear Wendy readers are some of the most intelligent, stylish, super-cool people around (it’s a proven fact), so it’s a no-brainer to feature some of their favorite products. Many of the recommended products happen to be affiliate products, which means I’ll receive a commission on any click-throughs or purchases you make through the affiliate links. As always, I appreciate your support! Today’s recommendations comes from Kate, who lives just outside of Boston with her husband and their Jack Russell Terrier, Mike. She’s in Client Development at a global media company and she travels a lot to glamorous places like New Jersey, but also takes fun vacations to Mexico and anywhere warm. She can’t wait for summer weekends enjoying outdoor patios, the beach on Cape Cod, and fresh seafood. In addition to all that, Kate is our resident style and beauty maven (as well as creepy stalker); check out some of her favorite product recommendations below.
Benefit They’re Real Tinted Primer and Mascara.
This combo is amazing. Lianne tried it after I got a sample and is also amazed. My eyelashes look three feet long and so thick. And you can do your lower lashes with the brown primer… or wear the primer alone. This stuff isn’t waterproof, but it stays put.
This work bag.
I have it in taupe. It has a laptop compartment in the middle, a main compartment on each side, and pockets.
Drybar Triple Sec
Not a dry shampoo but keeps your hair fresh for days. I make my blowouts last a week and I don’t have thick hair.
These velvet hangers
They’re very thin, so, if you usually use bulky plastic ones, they save a ton of space. Things won’t slip off them either. I was guilty of using wire hangers – the horror – and this looks soooo much better.
Oribe Gold Lust Treatment Masque
Repaired my hair after a burn unit situation and keeps it healthy. Yes, it’s expensive, but a little goes a long way and it will fix serious damage.
Maybelline 24-HR Eyeshadow in Bad to the Bronze
It’s all you need for summer.
This maxi dress
I don’t usually like LOFT, but this dress is fantastic. Very comfortable, versatile, flattering, comes in petite and, I think, tall too. My mom has it too!!! She was wearing it with a shawl in the evening on our cruise. I wore it in San Diego last week with a jean jacket. And it’s on sale right now for $49 — down from $89!
