From one acne-prone gal to another: I have tried them all. Watching the video above, I show you just the CURRENT concealers I have in my collection (which of course doesn’t include all the old ones I’ve since thrown away). But I’ve narrowed them down, with difficulty, to my absolute top 5 favorite concealers at the moment. Now, by no means am I saying this will always be my favorites, as the technology is getting better and better and formulations are becoming higher coverage with less “weight” so…this is, as they say, “subject to change”. But I’ll be sure to update you down the road if anything catches my fancy. But for the past year or so, these are the ones I’ve been reaching for the most.
Dress – H&M | Bracelet – Urban Outfitters | Necklace – Marc by Marc Jacobs | Tights – Wolford | Boots – Urban Outfitters (on sale!) | Watch – Tag Heuer | Earrings – Charles & Colvard | Bag – Chanel
Hi. How is everyone today? The other day, I wore a dress. It had a high-low hemline. Also, I did not wake up this morning and suddenly know how to speak French. I just named this post after one of my very favorite songs by one of my very favorite artists. (Crazy enough, our driver in Paris on our honeymoon, babysat her as a kid! He was floored that I knew of her and liked her so much, since she’s not well known here in the U.S.)
I filmed this video about 3 weeks ago, which I wanted as an intro for my new YouTube channel design (YouTube is updating channels now, and you can select a video to run for people who are not yet subscribers). So I thought, hey, why not film one of those ubiquitous “## Things You Didn’t Know About Me” videos that are so prevalent on the internet? (And by prevalent, I mean, this search has over 2.6 million results.) But then I kind of forgot all about it because, well…other posts got in the way.
My memory was jogged when Emily posted 20 things about herself, and the venom that spewed out in the comments about such a sweet and quirky video was so disheartening!
So without further ado, I give you the 21 things you may not have known about me. Completely honest. Every fact is true. Just ask my mom. ;) Let me know what you think in the comments!
I’d like to dedicate the video to Em, in hopes that she is never discouraged from being herself and acting a little silly now and then. I do it all the time.
One of my most highly requested videos – for whatever reason! After this video, the next thing you requested was to take a peek at what I bring with me to work. Now, for reference, in case you’re unfamiliar or you’re just plain new here (hi!), I’m a resident physician full-time. That means I’ve got to be pretty conservative, and plan for the unexpected.
Buy the bag here. Would love it if you’d subscribe to my videos on YouTube: it’s free and it just means I’ll show up on your youtube news feed when you sign in! I’m so excited that yesterday I actually hit 3,000 YouTube subscribers! It wasn’t that many months ago that I had 1,000 and I decided I was going to work on videos and expanding my YouTube audience. If you’re a new visitor to my blog and you come from YouTube, welcome! We’re quite the little family here.
As always, please Tweet or Facebook me your post / video requests (use the hashtag #pssrequests for Twitter or Instagram)!
Hey everyone! Welcome to my style & beauty blog. I'm kind of, teeny-tiny, slightly, crazily, obsessed with anything sparkly. I'm also obsessed with makeup. Are we in the circle of trust right now? Because if we are, I'd tell you that I use this blog as rationalization for spending way too much money on both of these things.
