BEAUTY TALK: Back to School Beauty Essentials

Back to School Beauty Essentials

Back to School Beauty Essentials by windsorstore 

Here's a 5 Easy Step Guide for a quick natural look before you head out the door for your first day of school!


  1. Apply your favorite powder make-up to your clean face. (Always make sure you cleanse before applying make-up, other wise your face becomes prone to break outs)
  2. Apply eyeliner to your top lid lightly along the inner corner, and gradually apply pressure for a thicker line as you work your way to the outer corner. For the 60's flick/cat eye, use your lower lash line as a guide and pretend like you're extending your lower lash line towards the end of the brow by making a small flick.
  3. Curl your eyelashes before applying mascara for extra length. Apply mascara to your eyelashes. (Make sure you apply from root to tip and side to side to separate lashes and prevent clumps.)
  4. Apply blush by sweeping your brush through the blush powder and then tap it to remove any excess. Then apply to the apples of your cheeks and extend stroke to your cheekbone. You can find these by smiling. :)
  5. Finish off by applying your favorite lip balm/lip gloss or lip stick.

Trend Report: Easy Summer Basics feat Robyn of Cleverlyours.com!


Top//Skirt//Backpack//Glasses, Shoes and accessories-Robyn's own
 
So excited for another trend report this week! This week is a much more relaxed look than usual, but a favorite none the less! I am a firm believer in wearing baseball tees all year round- they are one of my favorite classic, go-to tees and you can never go wrong when wearing one! I decided to go double comfy with this amazing double slit maxi skirt that pairs so well with the loose tee! Top it off with a pair of converse to complete your laid back look and say hello to your perfect relaxed summer look!

Fab Fit Friday: Summer Sizzlin' Skewers!

One of the best parts of summer is the grill. Grilling vegetables was the only way I'd eat them a while back. I take advantage of it this time of year! Grilling fresh vegetables and lean protein is great for your health, too! 
You can choose whatever vegetables, meat, or fruit for your skewers. I chose: shrimp, sweet potato, bell pepper, pineapple, squash, zucchini, and onion. I marinated them in my pineapple mango sauce. I also steamed the sweet potato in the microwave for 3 minutes. If you don't, you'll have the hardest time putting them on the skewers! 
Oh! and don't forget to soak the skewers. 
The grill was on high and I cooked them for three minutes on each side. 
I paired them with a broccoli slaw and grilled asparagus!

Every girl needs a denim jacket in their closet. Around Windsor we like to take even our basics up a notch so of course this applied to a denim jacket. When this came in we knew it was the perfect blend of basic and trendy. The wash is perfect and the studs and detail on the back are killer and there are SO many ways to wear it! Here Cara shows us how you can even pair it with an all black outfit.

For even more Cara make sure to follow her on her blog, Instagram, Twitter and Facebook!

Fab Fit Friday: Post Workout PB2 & Banana Protein Smoothie!


Peanut butter & banana. One of the best combinations out there! Why hasn't anyone created a banana butter yet? or banana jelly? Maybe they do have something like that and I'm unaware. Until I find something that magical, I'll have to keep slicing my bananas and topping my peanut butter toast or blending my peanut butter with my banana smoothies! 
Bananas are a great post-workout fuel. They have carbohydrates and potassium that repair and re-energize our bodies. Adding protein to repair our bodies is important too. You should invest in a protein powder if you don't get enough protein throughout the day. Protein powder is so diverse. You can add it to smoothies, baking, milk, or yogurt. I like Biochem, Vega, and Tera's Whey the best! 
Ingredients: *1/2 small frozen banana, *2 tbsps PB2 (or all natural peanut butter/almond butter), *1/2 tsp vanilla extract, *1 tbsp vanilla protein powder, *1 packet stevia, *1/2 cup ice, *1 cup water. 
Nutrition: 145 Calories, 2 g Fat, 17 g Carbs, 3.5 g Fiber, 8 g Sugar, 16 g Protein

Trend Report: Printed Pants (yes, you CAN wear them too!) feat Robyn!


Hello Windsor friends! Another week of trends from yours truly, and this week I am talking about one of my favorite trends- patterned and printed pants! Not only are prints thee perfect way to spice up an outfit, but they come in all shapes, sizes and go with so many options! These are a couple of options, especially if you're looking for a comfy option! 

These printed palazzo pants are not only light, airy and practically as comfortable as pajamas, but they make your legs look like they go on for days! I went with a little boho chic look with the wavy curls and the headband, but you could just as easily throw on any fun, bright colored tee or graphic tee and rock it as well! 

These chevron harem pants are another perfect comfy, summer option for pattered pants! I threw in a little neon and dressed the pants up a little for a "night out" look with a classic heel and matching clutch. Anytime I can get away with a comfy yet "dressed up" look, I'm all for it!

Now get out there and rock the prints! 

XOXO,
Cleverly, yours...
