Hiya! Hope you’re having a fantastic Friday! I have some great posts lined up for next week but I recently put up this Girl Power tag (meme) video. I hope you like it and have a great weekend, y’all!
A couple of months ago the folks from Louise Young contacted me inviting me to try a sample of their brush collection. Having drooled unceremoniously over the super jumbo massive round foundation brush (which you can see above far right) for many months prior to that, I quickly said yes. A few weeks later (they are an English brand) they were in my hands and I was ready to play. Please Click To Read More →
Hey guys! I wanted to share another bag review with you guys – this time it’s not Alexander Wang or Chanel or 3.1 Phillip Lim…promise! As you may well know, I’m pretty obsessed with three things: handbags, technology (cameras, cell phones, computers, gadgets), and watches. So as you can imagine I have the fair collection in each of these categories. Let me know if you’d like me to do collection videos on each category–and name which one you’d specifically like to see!
The Marc by Marc Jacobs “Goodbye Columbus” tote is a beauty – black with double zips (perhaps a tribute to the Prada Saffiano Lux Double Zip?) but with a gorgeous vachetta-type leather that is the softest leather I’ve ever felt in my life. In my life. It’s perfect for professionals or students transitioning to workdom (although a bit pricey for a student’s budget). I love that it can fit and iPad (regular or mini), or even a small Macbook Air or similarly sized small computer. It fits my rather large cell phone in the pocket with no issues (I got a new phone after filming this video).
What do you guys think of this bag?
Hello lovelies! Cannot believe it’s already time for February favorites. Such a short month! This time I’m doing something a bit differently – I’m directing you all to my Luvocracy page where you can find (and shop, if you’re in the U.S.) all of my favorites of this month. So click on over to my luvocracy collection to find all the goodies! Hope you enjoy the video – making it a little snazzier every time! And I’m back to the old background again, yay!
Leave a comment with your favorite thing this month (doesn’t have to be beauty) – let’s start a conversation! I love chatting with you all! xx
Having recently been plagued with a cold, I started reaching for beauty products that would make me look–and by osmosis feel–more alive, refreshed, and healthy. When I’m sick my skin is a bipolar mix, sometimes super dry and sometimes super oily. Either way, I cleanse my skin thoroughly when I’m sick (and I wash all of my makeup brushes thoroughly). These are the items I reach for which I find help bring back radiance to the face.
After a good moisturizer, I love reaching for YSL’s Youth Liberator Serum foundation because it’s lightweight, doesn’t feel heavy on the skin, but gives a fair amount of coverage and ultimately makes the skin look radiant and ever so slightly dewy. I apply with a flat topped kabuki brush.
Sick day skin is all about the face so I am sure to use my heavy duty under eye concealer (a well-loved pot of Bobbi Brown Corrector in Light Bisque). Then I apply a highlighting concealer pen over that as well as the high points of my face. After that, the rest of the face is kept simple with a soft blush, and neutral glossy lip (this one is Blush Essence). I also recommend redness removing eye drops (I personally love Rohto drops but for those who find them too strong, the Clear Eyes cooling ones are similar but less stinging).
