June Favorites (Best Office Bag EVER!)

I don’t always post a favorites blog every month… but when I do it’s full of fabulous finds! (LOL I couldn’t resist the meme reference!). Today’s round-up is comprised of 6 products I’ve been telling everyone about lately because they are almost too good to be true, but aren’t! I always trust bloggers who actually buy and use products themselves over simply rounding up photos of things just for the commission. While I’m all about making commissions, that’s now why I blog — so if I haven’t actually tried something, but I post a link to it on my blog or…

Belle & the Enchanted Rose Beauty and The Beast Disney Inspired Makeup

Although I love Beauty and The Beast’s story I’ve always been more intrigued by the Enchanted Rose. It symbolizes the delicacy and slow bloom of love, yet is powerful enough to transform anyone. Today’s makeup look is inspired by Belle and the Enchanted Rose. I always thought Belle had a very rose-bud-esque look with her earthy eyes, flushed cheeks, beautiful skin and mauve pink lips. The whole idea for this look came together quite some time ago when the Lancôme La Rôse à Poudrer Highlighter‎ released in February. Just like the Enchanted Rose I immediately imagined this highlighter belonging under a…

Why You Should Be Excited About Pantone’s 2016 Colors of the Year: Rose Quartz & Serenity

Why should you and I care about Pantone’s “Color of the Year” choice? To semi-quote fictional fashion icon Miranda Priestly (who was none-the-less correct on this matter) what you wear is chosen for you by people who do care what the color of the year is. This means your favorite designers, all the way down to the bargain outlet sales racks, will have an abundance of whatever that color is on every jacket, bag and blouse you can imagine. Personally, I’m rejoicing this year. With 2015 being the year of go-go-go and more-more-more it’s refreshing to see an industry influence…

Styling a Statement Blazer with Shabby Apple

A few months ago Shabby Apple asked if they could send me a piece from their Summer collection to review. Of course I was thrilled and chose the Jackson Jacket. The Jackson Jacket is a little more bold, pattern-wise, than I usually go for, but I wanted the little challenge of styling it in a completely different way than was portrayed on the model. This jacket instantly evokes visions of 1960s housewives in bouffant hair and an apron (which I love!), but versatility is the life of any well-trimmed wardrobe, and I wanted to see where this jacket would fit…
