Beauty: Summer Skin with Rodial

August 30, 2017

I created Rue Margaux as a platform to share how I apply the French way of life into my everyday American life.  However, this platform was also created to share other things I love (both French and non-French) like beauty finds.  Yes, I'm a beauty junkie (actually I'm more of a skin and hair care junkie than makeup).  It's not that I want to try every product out there, but as I gets older I find it necessary to change the items on my vanity tray to suit the needs of my hair and skin.

For my very first beauty segment, I had the pleasure of testing out a few amazing products by Rodial.  Rodial, a London-based luxury brand, is known for their line of skincare and makeup products with intriguing names like "snake serum" or "Dragon's Blood Hyaluronic Toner".  After a few weeks of testing out their products, I have to say I am now a fan and I'd like to share some of my favorites.

Dragon's Blood Hyaluronic Toner:  I spritz this on my face day and night as an energy booster and to lock in moisture for my skin.  You can use it to set your makeup too.  It contains rosewater, which I love!

Snake Eye Cream O2:  I'm not as consistent with eye creams as much as I'd like to be.  Since receiving this product, I have used it day and night.  I like how it firms and energizes the skin around my eyes.

Glamolash™ Mascara XXL:  I can't tell you how much I love this long-wearing mascara.  I have tried other mascaras in the same price range, but they never provided the long-wear and volume I wanted...that is until I tried the Glamolash™.  It provides volume for my lashes without the clumping.

Smokey Eye Pen Black:  I've found my perfect eyeliner pencil!  It glides on smoothly, lasts the whole day, and does not budge!!

Have you tried these or any other products from Rodial?  I'd love to hear your thoughts.  You can shop for these products at Saks or Space NK USA.

Refined Elegance: Daniel Wellington

August 27, 2017

I’m excited to be partnering up with the Swedish watch brand, Daniel Wellington, for my very first style blog post.  They are known for their minimalist and timeless style, which fits with my personal style.  I'm a full believer that less is more.  It is a philosophy I try to apply in all aspects of my life.  When I was contacted with an opportunity to work with Daniel Wellington, I knew it was a perfect fit.  Their vast collection of men's and women's timepieces are the epitome of understated elegance.  One of the things I love about this brand is they fit perfectly with any outfit for every occasion. Their straps are interchangeable making Daniel Wellington timepieces pair easily with a casual outfit or formal attire.

I wanted a timepiece that boasts refined elegance, femininity, and sophistication.  I also wanted something that will go with my professional work attire and casual wear like jeans and a t-shirt so I chose the Classic Petite 32mm Melrose in Rose Gold.  It looks fantastic day or night!

In partnership with Daniel Wellington, I'm delighted they are offering my Rue Margaux readers 15% off any timepiece of your choosing just by entering RUEMARGAUX15 upon checkout on  Another added bonus is they offer free shipping worldwide!

I'd love to know which timepiece fits from Daniel Wellington's collection fits your style.
