all the things you do to me…

Bobbi Brown’s Neon’s & Nudes makeup Collection, Acne Lia Cashmere sweater, Dannijo Benj bracelet, Madewell Pyramid Post and Staccato Stud bracelets

 …and everything you said. I just can’t get enough. I just can’t get enough. We slip and slide as we fall in love and I just can’t seem to get enough…

Depeche Mode people. Check this vintage amazingness.

As you may have noticed from my last couple of outfit posts, I am really feeling for a pop of neon color to add some panache to my still winter outfits. Like I just can’t get enough (harhar). And now I am thinkin’ Pop of Neon brights to my outfit, Pop of Neon brights to my makeup routine. Love this Bobbi Brown Neons & Nudes makeup palette for Spring! Must buy now…

Happy Labor Day weekend loves! Hope you all have fun plans! I’ll be busy prepping and planning for next week’s big trip! Plus a BBQ or two thrown in, of course.

p.s. congrats to my friend Heather for winning the Man Repeller fashion week contest – she gets to walk in the world’s biggest fashion show in PARIS next week! Oh and guess, what? I was the photographer behind her winning shot! I can’t help but be bursting with pride. She promised me she’d send me a postcard.

liquid love

I have a confession to make: I have just recently discovered liquid eyeliner. I know what you’re thinking, where have you been? but I never really could get into it. Until now. I just got one of Stila’s new ‘Stay All Day’ waterproof liquid eyeliner pens and it is my new Spring makeup obsession. These pens are kind of magical: a firm, perfectly tapered pen tip, an easy to apply formula and serious all-day staying power. They come in many colors and also, in sparkle versions (see here!). It takes a little practice, of course, to perfect the application of the liquid eyeliner, but I do think these ones make it easy. I have been experimenting with a cat-eye flared end look as well as thinner and thicker lines for varied dramatic effect. I would highly recommend these pens if you are already liquid eyeliner lover or new to the concept like I was. I only own basic black right now but I am planning on collecting all of the colors!



lavender & florals

I was recently looking through my inspiration tears and I came across these lovely fashion spreads from Elle’s March 2010 issue. Even though they are a year old, they still feel so relevant. I am loving the grounded in lavender color palette sprung to life with optimistic literal and abstract florals. These are the perfect looks to be complimented with Bobbi Brown’s new Spring 11 lavender and pretty pink makeup collection “Python & Peony”  in which she partnered with Tibi to create the prettiest spring packaging.  J’Adore.

current obsessions: beauty

Come Fall, along with a wardrobe and accessory refresher, I also like to give my beauty routine a little reboot. Just a few new things to update my look and usher in the changing of the seasons. Here are the new Fall beauty items I have recently acquired and am currently obsessing over:

Two different shades of Fall’s hottest nail color:  Butter London’s All Hail McQueen & Chanel Particulière . Yes, I needed to own them both! One lighter and shimmery (McQueen), one slightly darker and richer (Pariculière)

a little bit more Chanel: Coco Mademoiselle (a recent gift from my fairy godmother)

Bobbi Brown Long-Wear Gel Eyeliner in Denim a pretty dark navy blue, part of Bobbi’s new Fall “Denim and Rose” collection

Last but not least, I have switched over from neon pink to Burgundy Berry lips:  Makeup Forever Rouge Artist Intense #46

Are you obsessing over any new beauty buys this season?
