for him and then you steal it / glamping edition
I ran into a niche line called Fieldworks at Magic a couple of weeks ago. I was taken by their mini size things (of course), nature-esque scents and names like “Hose Off." Then I learned the line was created for men’s grooming… as if that’s ever stopped me.
                    
Fieldworks is based out of Portland, Oregan, ie. the middle of nature. They specialize in small hand craft batches of skincare items for men made from all natural & beneficial ingredients such as bentonite clay … which if you didn’t know isfinely weathered volcanic ash. (cool)
The great thing about these men’s products is that they are extra-strength grime & odor removers (bentonite’s specialty) and they are multi-purpose. Perfect for glamping. Hose Off can be your body wash, shampoo, and face wash. Well for men, I wish I was that low maintenance. And the Bar None Body Brick is made with oils, bentonite clay, vetiver, and nutmeg that deep cleanse and smell like nuzzling up to a freshly showered flannel wearing man. Mmm
I highly recommend getting these for your man, so you can steal them.

I figured a Friday before a long holiday weekend (and the last official weekend of summer) might be a great one for this call to action in the form of the yummiest fragrance (if we do say so ourselves - we made this at our day job for our besties at Francesca’s).
Go Fearlessly. Love Wildly. Spray Liberally. 
(seriously, especially the last one).
                    
The scent is a super delicious gourmand (that means it smells sort of like you want to eat it - but not in a childlike, candy way). It’s starts with Italian bergamot, which is a warm citrusy scent, then blends into tonka bean and vanilla, and finishes with sheer musks. It lasts forever on skin and makes you feel basically like the dog in this photo.

File Under // Cult Makeup
There are a few things that attracted me makeup brand Jouer… 
1. The creator, retired model and lovely mom Christina Zilber2. Beautiful colors, soft formulas, easy application3. The entire line feels whimsical and romantic
                    
You can use a single item or the entire line and love the outcome. I’m pretty sure Jouer has a little something for anyone’s face. My favorite products as of late are the Lip Sheers, specifically in the new Rosy Stain and St. Barths. They look sheer but they leave a beautiful natural looking color on my lips. 
Aside from the stains, the Luminizing Tinted Moisturizer creates a natural looking dewy glow for days you don’t feel like wearing full foundation. The Lumizing Cheek Tint is the perfect complement in shade and texture to the moisturizer. And it has a little sparkle to it.
I’ve also been using the Creme Eye Shadow Crayon in Rococo combined with the Creme Mousse Eyeshadow for fun metallic-a eyes that are all the rage this fall. I could go on for hours …
If you’ve never played with Jouer (which in French means to play) I recommend starting with a Lip Sheer or their cult Luminizing Body Glow. You can’t go wrong!
