Holiday Ready with Amopé Pedi Perfect Foot Files from CVS!

This is a sponsored conversation written by me on behalf of Amopé. The opinions and text are all mine.

Wow, can you believe the holidays are already upon us?! This is my favorite time of the year, and with it comes gift-giving, which I love! It is so much fun looking for the perfect gift for my friends and family, but it can also be super challenging trying to figure out exactly what everyone wants! Every year when I sit down to make my list, I think about not only what everyone would want, but also items that they might need.

The Amopé Pedi Perfect Extra Coarse Electronic Foot File is definitely a permanent part of my beauty regime. After walking around all day in fabulous but sometimes painful shoes, it’s totally natural for us to develop hard calluses on the bottom of our feet, as much as we all don’t want to admit this! That’s why I love this foot file - the extra coarse roller head has long lasting micro-abrasive particles, and the newest version comes with finely ground diamond crystals! Yes, that’s right- diamond crystals! So fancy, right? It buffs away all of the hard skin leaving you with visibly smooth feet that you will want to touch all day long!

You’ll see results right away – beautifully smooth skin after using it just once! The design is also so thoughtful – it has an ergonomically designed soft touch handle so it feels great in your hand. The head is also replaceable so it’s always working at its best, and the product is battery operated.

This has always been one of my favorite products to use, and it’s definitely something everyone on your list can use too and will love!  I like to package it with my favorite nail polishes and give it as part of a perfect pedicure gift set!

I love shopping for my everyday needs at CVS, and it’s an extra bonus when I find things that make perfect gifts as well! CVS always has everything you need and that’s where you can find the Amopé Pedi Perfect Extra Coarse Electronic Foot File! You can save an extra $10 with this coupon HERE! When buying all these holiday gifts for everyone we can all be a little strapped for cash, it’s always nice to get a coupon to save some money! You can easily find this product in the foot care aisle in CVS and if there is ever an issue looking for it, you can just ask one of the many friendly and helpful employees at CVS!

I of course love the pink color, but don’t forget about the men on your list! This is also a great gift for the guys, and they have a blue color that they’ll love!

What is on your holiday wish list?! Have you started shopping for the holidays yet? Trust me – it pays to start early!! Nothing puts a damper on your holiday season more than last minute shopping. It’s going to come up sooner then we all think and the Amopé Pedi Perfect Extra Coarse Electronic Foot File should be on the top of your list (hint: it’s the perfect stocking stuffer)!

Xoxo,

Emily Men!

Brilliant Moments with Jared The Galleria of Jewelry!

I was asked to participate in the #JaredTimelessMoments campaign, sponsored by Jared The Galleria of Jewelry. Although I have been compensated, all opinions are my own!

One of my favorite ways to commemorate a special occasion is with jewelry – it’s the best way to ensure that both you and the person you are celebrating with will remember the occasion forever. Jared’s Brilliant Moments collection is beautifully curated with timeless hand-selected diamonds that are perfect for celebrating any special moment in your life!

My sister recently got a promotion at work, and I decided to mark this milestone by gifting her with a couple pieces of jewelry. I've seen first hand how hard she works at her job, and I am so excited that all that work has finally paid off!  Even though our jobs are really different, we have been there for each other and supported each other since the beginnings of our respective careers, and I'm so happy to be able to celebrate this achievement with her!! We love minimalist and delicate jewelry because it’s so effortless to wear everyday. I thought these would be the perfect gifts for her! They go with everything and are simple yet still make a statement. We love surprising each other with gifts so a promotion is the perfect time for a more special gift!

I know that she has been looking for lariat necklace for a while now, and when I saw this one, I knew it would be perfect for her! Buy here!

She also loves rings, and this one is gorgeous and simple – perfect for stacking or wearing on its own! Buy here.

My sister loves both of her new pieces from Jared The Galleria of Jewelry!!

These were my two favorite picks, but I also love the Diamond Choker Necklace, which goes perfect with anything you are wearing.

How great do they look?! They are so versatile and can be worn with anything!

This stackable diamond ring is so timeless.  It is simple enough to wear every day yet has enough design to stand out!

Jared The Galleria of Jewelry is one of my favorite places to get gifts to commemorate all of Life’s special occasions. Whether gifting to my sister, other loved ones, or even to myself!

My Jockey Air!

In partnership with Macys!

One of the most important lessons I have learned about fashion is that your undergarments can make or break your outfit! That’s why I am so excited to be partnering with Jockey for their new and chic skin-tone line of lingerie exclusively at Macy’s!  With the huge popularity of sheer pieces right now, it really makes a difference when you are wearing the right undergarments that will complement, not distract, from your outfit!

It’s so important to find the right skin tone, and Jockey has such a huge selection of tones you will be sure to find the perfect one for you! The tone I matched my skin with is Light- Nude 01!

The entire line is super lightweight, which is perfect to wear under anything, especially all your summer fashions to keep you cool. The fabric stretches but stays smooth, which makes it incredibly comfortable to wear all day. I’m obsessed with the air seamless bralette because it’s the perfect amount of coverage and so comfortable that it doesn’t feel like you are wearing anything at all. Find which bralette matches your skin tone here!

The Seamfree® design and bonded leg treatment gives you an invisible look under your clothes. My favorite from the bottoms was the air seamless hipster. It sits on the hip which I find to be the most comfortable, and I love that it has full coverage, especially if I am wearing a dress or skirt, which as you know I often am! Find your new favorite, the air seamless hipster here!

So chic, comfortable, and wearable. I wear Jockey Air undergarments with everything! See them all here!

Brunchin’ with SkinCeuticals!

I’m obsessed with skincare, and one of my favorite lines is SkinCeuticals.  I was thrilled to be invited to a luncheon hosted by SkinCeuticals, where we got to learn more about their clinical research on Atmospheric Skin Aging, which was published in the Journal of Investigative Dermatology.

It’s no secret why SkinCeuticals is so popular with dermatologists, doctors and aestheticians everywhere – they stand out in a sea of skincare brands because their science is solid.  Every single one of their products reflects the research, science and technology they have mastered. SkinCeuticals has been researching atmospheric aggressors for over 30 years, and the aging associated with it, Atmospheric Skin Aging, is caused by basically everything around us – UVA/UVB rays, infrared radiation (IR), visible light (even your kitchen lights!), air pollution, ozone pollution, particulate matter, and cigarette smoke!! Ahhhh! So what does this really mean for our skin!? All of these aggressors cause cellular damage which triggers contributes to skin again! Nobody wants that!

Through years of research, SkinCeuticals discovered that certain combinations of antioxidants perform better together and brings about better results then they do individually. Their antioxidants neutralize the free radicals induced by ozone pollution exposure to help reduce all this damage that has been caused by the exposure to ozone pollution! One of my favorites and one of their most popular products C E Ferulic, which is a revolutionary antioxidant combination that give you 8 times the protection that your skin has naturally. It’s a breakthrough antioxidant that is a combination of L-ascorbic acid and alpha tocopherol, combined with ferulic acid, which doubles the performance and protects against UV rays, free radicals, and cellular damage that causes premature skin aging! Research has shown a 96% reduction of sunburn cells in TV irradiated skin!

My skin is super dry, super sensitive, and is prone to hyperpigmentation, so this product is a miracle worker. After just using the product for two weeks, I’ve seen such an improvement in the tone and texture of my skin!! I love trying new products, but when I find one that works, I keep it in rotation, and this one is going to stay in my routine. It’s perfect for all skin types and also improves the appearance of wrinkles of loss of firmness!

If your skin is more oily/combination, then Phloretin CF is perfect for you! It’s formulated with l-ascorbic acid and ferulic acid, as well as phloretin, which helps improve cell turnovers neutralizes damaging free radicals, which will improve the overall appearance of your skin and help with discoloration, without being overly nourishing for already oily skin.

Another one of my favorites is the H.A. Intensifier!!!! If you have dry skin like me, this is the perfect product for you. Hyaluronic acid is a super important to maintaining your skin’s natural biomechanical properties, and it helps regulate moisture levels in kin. This product helps to renew plumpness, elasticity, and firmness. The appearance of crows feet, nasolabial folds, and marionette lines are reduced and it even refines your skin’s complexion!

The most important step in my skincare routine is to WEAR SPF!!!!!! It is so important especially when you are out in the sun, but a lot of people don’t realize that even if you spend most of your time indoors, you still need it! I absolutely love SkinCeuticals Physical Matte UV Defense SPF 50!! This product is a 100% mineral filter sunscreen that is formulated with oil-absorbing aerated silica technology which leaves a smooth and mattified finish with the broad spectrum UV protection you need! No one ever wants to look oily, so this product is perfect, especially for those hot and humid days!

I am so  grateful to have been a part of this super informative luncheon with SkinCeuticals, and can’t wait to add more of their amazing products to my skincare routine now that I know I have to protect my skin against Atmospheric Skin Aging! Cheers to beautiful and protected skin! XOXO
