Amanda’s individual tips:

-I like to do weekly Face Masks to keep my face looking fresh and blemish-free. I love the Peter Thomas Roth Skinstant Mask Magic Set, which is a collection of three of Peter Thomas Roth’s most popular masks to detoxify, repair, and polish skin.​

-Life with kids means never enough sleep, so I swear on my morning eye cream to de-puff and brighten. I use Origins GinZing Refreshing Eye Cream.

-I just starting wearing eye ahadow recently and I can’t believe I used to go without it! It instantly makes your eyes the focal point of your face, which is great for showing off my baby blues. I love the festive range of golds in the Urban Decay Naked Palette.

-I love easy throw-on tops that still look fashionable, so right now I am obsessed with the brand RAILS and their cool plaid button downs.

-My go-to winter shoe is a pointy toe bootie; I love my DV by Dolce Vita ones because they are so versatile and incredibly comfortable!

-You need a few hot dresses for the holiday season, so my two splurges were the following: Mason by Michelle Mason Lace Back Spaghetti Strap Dress Alice & Olivia Wilcox A-line Dress.

-Then of course this chunky hand knit wool infinity scarf from Lu Lu Luvs is just perfect — it’s absolutely the best accessory for any outfit!

-Last but not least, a classic modern style Kelly Moore bag is fashionable and super functional, I can carry everything I need for my little ones plus get all my camera gear in for a full day of shooting!

Pantone, the global authority on color, introduced the Color of the Year 2015 as Marsala (Pantone 18-1438). Although Marsala is somewhat of a controversial color choice for some — liking a color is a personal and subjective experience — I really like Marsala because it is equally as stylish on a girl or boy. Pantone describes the color as “a naturally robust and earthy wine red, Marsala enriches our minds, bodies and souls.” My opinion is that Marsala is a grounding, warm red-brown color that looks good on everything from apparel, to accessories, to shoes, and even for home decor. It is a seasonless color that can be worn as a grounded statement color on its own in the fall and winter, and as a strong accent to other lighter and brighter colors in the spring and summer. I think both me and my son need something Marsala in our wardrobes for 2015, so we can radiate with confidence — obviously.
