Haute New Products from Jouer

I love to play with fabulous beauty products, therefore it's not surprising that Jouer is one of my new favorites. The word Jouer literally means "to play" in French. The beauty brands' Founder and Creative Director Christina Zilber says, "Your makeup drawer is your beauty wardrobe!" 

I just added some Jouer Lip Sheer with SPF to my Haute Travels bag! I absolutely love the hint of color that moisturizes and protects from the sun's harmful rays. The sheer Rosy and the Maui stain naturally adjust to my own PH and adds a personal flush of color for a natural look. 

I also added the Tint for cheeks in sunkissed to bring about a glow no matter where I go.The great thing about this product... you can also use it on your lips! Just simply apply it with your fingertips and brush over your lips. This product is loaded with vitamin E and shea butter to nourish the skin.





The moisturizing lip glosses are also pretty wonderful. My favorite color right now is Peony! The pink pops on my lips to add a Haute Travels signature lip. 



SKORA Makes Working Out Haute!

It's time to add a workout to my day... and that means the right sneaker makes all the difference. I recently discovered the amazing SKORA running shoe. It's made with the best technical and performance materials to ensure quality and comfort. 



The fit is great and details like the asymmetrical lace up is pretty haute. The shoe offers fantastic support and there is reflective mesh for nighttime running or power walking making the person wearing the sneaker easily visible for a safer workout!

I also love that it's water and sweat resistant. This shoe is designed to be responsive to various conditions. It's even designed to stay comfortable no matter the surface with a multi-surface traction control. 

I find it also works well for indoor workouts on different types of floors... offering enough cushion for any workout. The SKORA sneaker offers high performance and natural movement for a great workout. 

Haute Beauty Oil Treatments

Summer is the season of beauty oils and I always add them to my Haute Travels bag. Although the skin naturally produces oil, adding more oil to help with dryness and keeping the skin firm can make a tremendous. Oils penetrate the skin faster than many creams... and potent fatty acids can help protect the skin from free radicals and even reduces the signs of aging.

Here are three beauty oils that I use for my face and body from Clarins, Bottega Veneta and L'Oreal Paris. They are amazing products delivering great results no matter where my Haute Travels take me. 

I am in love with Bottega Veneta's satin body oil. It's lightly scented and leaves my skin feeling soft and smooth. Just massage it into your skin when it's damp from a bath and you'll instantly feel the difference. It leaves beautiful satiny soft skin with no oily residue. I also love to pair it with the satin body powder on a nice breezy evening in the South of France.

When I'm traveling to the Caribbean, I always add my Clarins "Anti-Eau" Body Treatment Oil to my carry on. It's made with 100% pure plant extracts to drive toxins from the skin, while also shaping, toning and firming. Plus, lemon extracts help energize, while hazel nut nourishes the skin. The best way to apply the oil is to first warm it in your hands and massage it into the thighs, legs and ankles. It's also best to follow with a cool shower to further activate the product by sealing it into the skin.

When my face starts to get dry during winter in London, I break out my L'Oreal Paris Age Perfect Glow Renewal Facial Oil. It absorbs into the skin instantly leaving it more radiant. It contains eight essential oils to combat dryness and leave skin feeling soft. I also use it right before bed to hydrate overnight. 

The great thing about oils, you can easily add them to other products like cleansers, moisturizers even shampoo and conditioners to increase hydration to hair, skin and nails.

Bvlgari's Jasmin Noir is Haute!

One of my new Haute Travels favorite things to add to my travel bag is a fragrance from Bvlgari. I am loving my collection of Jasmin Noir lotion, parfum and soap. It's for the girl who walks into a room and brings a bit of mystery along with her. Notes of Jasmin, gardenia florals and wood accented with almond create a subtle combination of hautness. 

The black and gold packaging adds a richness that you'll only find with Bvlgari. There is only one way to travel and that's HAUTE!

Haute Spot: NM Cafe

The NM Café inside the Neiman Marcus department store in Atlanta’s posh Buckhead area allows stylish lunch options. This cozy and casual café offers a menu full of amazing dishes like chic soups, salads, and fashionable desserts served up by Chef Idris Muhammad. 








Haute Travels girls will love this stiletto dining environment starting with the café’s famous popovers and broth with a glass of the popular Ginger Peach Iced Tea.  The must-have She Crab Soup is delicious; it’s full of hearty chunks of jumbo lump crab meat. The Chicken Paillard Milanese was an obvious choice as a main entrée… the herb parmesan breaded chicken, Israeli couscous, mushrooms, baby carrots with arugula, seasoned tomato basil sauce and olive oil was delicious. And dessert was like a slice of heaven, the carrot cake and famous Neiman Marcus cookies were delightful! 






The NM Café is an Atlanta Haute spot for those who love dining where they shop… just a floor or two away from Haute Couture gives every girl something to smile about.




Cafe Manager Steven Waugh shared the secret recipe for the Ooh so amazing Ginger Peach Iced Tea. In fact, he and an employee created this special blend. It's made with water brewed with fresh ginger, peach tea and a special peach syrup. 

Haute Travels Tip: The Seafood Salad is a new menu item that you must try! It's full of flavor and makes a great summer selection for lunch.
