A Fresh Start With Leaders Cosmetics :: Hello 2015

Sunday, January 4, 2015

Every January there's always talk of "Fresh starts" and "New beginnings." For me, that doesn't mean listing out resolutions and focusing on things I want to change about myself for the new year. For me, every January is a fresh start for a whole new experience, and I think that's pretty exciting all on its own! This is a time to think ahead with positive energy, and this year I'm taking my first fresh steps with Leaders Cosmetics by my side. I've decided to start my year off with a fresh, clear face in anticipation for the glorious new chapter that awaits me in 2015. 
I was super psyched when Leaders Cosmetics contacted me at the end of 2014 and asked me to sample a portion of their incredible skincare line. I was sent four different face masks of my choosing along with a personal, handwritten note. Thanks to Leaders, I'm definitely putting my best face forward in 2015!
Metallic and leather are a killer combo for NYE - or any night for that matter! As many of you know, a black leather jacket is a closet staple for me and I love the way this top glistens underneath. 
Gold and silver jewelry is a must. 
I could wear these earrings every day. In fact, I pretty much have been. Their big-impact sparkle creates a statement all on their own and I love how they effortlessly go with just about everything in my closet. 
Coated denim can serve as a leather-pant alternative. The shiny finish on these babies give them a rocker vibe without the restrictions that leather can sometimes have. 
Keeping my metallic game strong with my new Marc Jacobs watch. 
Unclog pores, wash away impurities, and achieve the crystal clear skin you've always wanted with a revised beauty routine. I'm resolving to take better care of my skin this year and I'm starting with incorporating Leaders face masks into my beauty regimen. 

I loved all of the masks I was sent, but I found this one particularly helpful for this time of year because I constantly find my skin in incredibly dry condition from December to February. This mask had me shining from the inside out and left me feeling moisturized and refreshed - I can't think of a better way to start the new year!

This is the outfit that I wore on New Year's Eve. Typically I opt for a dress on NYE, but this year I decided to stick with a warmer option, and I was really satisfied with the result. I like how this look is edgy but still incorporates all the NYE essential elements - think metallic, glitter, silver, and gold. 

I hope everyone's New Year's Eves and days were a success. I have a feeling that 2015 will be a fantastic year!
