Jouer Powder Blush in Rose and Bloom

These have been two of my favorite blushes for the last few months and I wanted to share them with you.  I have grabbed for Bloom more than any other blush recently because it just brings life to my face.  I grab for Rose almost as often when I'm going for soft cheeks.  Rose is perfect as we are going into fall and looking for a softer cheek color to pair with our bold eyes or lips.  

Jouer Powder Blushes in Rose and Bloom

Rose is a beautiful natural pink that gives your cheeks the perfect flush.  Bloom is a soft peach, one of my favorite blushes ever, that just wakes up your face.  I think both of these blushes would look great on a variety of skin tones.  They both have a matte finish so these are also great for those of us with skin imperfections.  

The entire Jouer line consists of extremely high quality products and these blushes are no exception.  They blend out like a dream and the finish is beautiful.  They also layer nicely with a highlight. The wear time is average for a regular powder blush, equal to a MAC blush.    

Overall, I love these blushes.  I can not wait to pick up more colors.  I have always been more of a lip product junkie, but these two little gems have ignited a bit of a blush obsession in me. 

Personal Note:
My favorite pairing is Bloom Blush with Jouer's Sun Tan Bronzer.  

Have you tried any Jouer Blushes?

Amoralia Tutti Frutti Nursing Bra and Knicker Review

Amoralia is a company that was started in London back in 2005.  They aim to give pregnant women stylish and comfortable maternity lounge wear and underwear while not sacrificing quality.  

First of all, I absolutely LOVE how Amoralia packages and ships their products.  You really feel like you are getting a personal gift from someone who cares.

I adore this set.  The print is fun and the lace is girly and together that is the perfect combination.  I wore this set during my pregnancy.  While I had a little room in the bra to grow, I found this to be super comfortable and enjoyable to wear.   The design and fabric is simply fun and a nice change from the  everyday white, black, and nude that most other maternity and nursing bras come in.  This bra can also be used during nursing, which is what I am currently using it for.  I like that there is no underwire and the band is soft and doesn't dig into my back.  The knicker is fun and flirty and is perfect for when you want to feel extra sexy.  However, it's more a "cheeky" fit so it isn't suitable for wear in your immediate postpartum stage.  

What You Need To Know:

The bra has a six row hook and eye closure which ensures you will be able to wear it as you expand during pregnancy and as your body returns to it's normals size postpartum.  The plastic clasps for nursing are easily undone with one hand.  The bra is has a soft cotton lining and is fully machine washable.  

You can find this set on the  Amoralia website, just be sure to click the $ icon at the top right corner to make sure you are seeing US pricing.  

Final Thoughts:

This has been a joy to wear.  Even though it is under my clothes, it has helped me feel sexy and pretty during my pregnancy and postpartum days.  These last few weeks, when taking a shower sometimes seems impossible, wearing this Tutti Frutti set has made me feel like myself.  

I would highly recommend this set to anyone looking for maternity lingerie that is nontraditional, fun, and flirty.
