The Two Best Looks From The 2017 Oscars Couldn’t Be More Different

Naomie Harris is amazing in this minimal yet stunning dress by Raf Simon first red carpet dress for Calvin Klein. I love the simplicity, yet the train keeps it interesting and different.

It takes a village!! The Final Look!

Some might say Jessica Beil looked like an Oscar and she kind of does, but I don’t think that’s a bad thing. I love how this dress, by Kaufmanfranco, manages to be both glamorous and edgy at the same time. However, what takes this look to the next level is this amazing statement choker Tiffany & Co.

My favorite part of awards seasons isn’t the red carpet but the behind the scenes instagram snaps.

How The New DUO Body Cleanser Will Make Travelling Easier

Along with being a fashion and beauty junkie, I am also addicted to traveling. There is nothing more thrilling than visiting new countries, seeing different cultures, experiencing different smells and foods. However, one aspect of travel that I hate is carrying luggage, especially heavy luggage. Being laden down with bags slows me down and makes travel so much more difficult and tiring.

It's something I’m constantly battling, and as someone who always wants to look their best, this can often equate to lots of luggage. Over the years I’ve worked really hard to build a capsule wardrobe -a well edited collection of clothes that are interchangeable to create a various number of looks. Gone are the days when you pack a different shoe or bag for each outfit. You want pieces that will work with several looks.

The other area where I try to reduce the weight is with my toiletries. I want the best travel-ready beauty products that I can toss straight into my carry-on because looking fabulous is always on my itinerary.
I like to take products that have multi-uses. For example, a pencil that can be used for both my eyebrows and eyeliner or a face oil that doubles as a split end treatment or a cleanser that is also a make-up remover. This way, I'm not sacrificing my beauty routine.
Olay launches new game changing product DUO body cleanser in Soothing Orchid and Black Currant #ShowerDUOver
I’ve recently come across a new product that will now be an essential part of my curated beauty kit. Olay has introduced a 2 in 1 body cleanser (DUO Body Cleanser, $9.99) which, means I no longer have to pack a shower gel and body puff, hurrah! Instead, I just add water to activate the lather. One side is textured to allow you to exfoliate and the other side is smooth to condition the skin.

I've always found that traditional body puffs never really removed any dead skin, yet I continued to use it because there wasn't a better option until now. So for me, this is a game changer.
Travel with the new Olay DUO body Cleanser for a lighter toiletries bag
Just hang to dry between uses and replace when lather fades, usually after about 30 uses. You can also tell as the inner core of soap will slowly shrink down after each wash.
A new game changing product DUO body cleanser by Olay, Old Spice and Ivory #ShowerDUOver
DUO comes in 3 different scents Old Spice Pure Sport, Ivory Refreshing Clean and my personal fav Olay Soothing Orchid and Black Currant. It's a great blend of floral with fruit to create a refreshing trace.

DUO Body Cleansers, $9.99, are available at drugstores, mass retailers and CleansingDUOs.com

Big thank you to P&G for sponsoring this post!
