When the weather outside is frightful—I tend to hide under hats. Thankfully, I love them. Help save this craft and local manufacturing by supporting my dear friend (and hat designer) Satya Twena’s Kickstarter.

Loving these colorful shoe laces—created by Jasmine Takanikos for Benjos. Can’t wait to rock these on my fall boots. Oh, and I’m not much of a penny loafer girl but if you are, the colorful pennies Takanikos made for Benjos are possibly the best way to wear loafers…ever.

Can’t get enough of beauty tutorials? Neither can we. The lovely Jamie Beck and I decided that sometimes a girl just wants a strong lip — and who are we to deny her of that? Check out my how-to using MAKE cosmetics on Jamie’s site.

Bronzed Winter

At last…Spring. Warmer temperatures bring out shorter hemlines revealing our wintery pale skin. Here are a few of my favorite products and tips to carry you into summer.  

 

Self-Tanners:  

PRO TIP: Don’t forget to exfoliate! Use rubber gloves to apply to avoid that weird dark palm syndrome you see on some ladies. 


Powder Bronzers:

In Celebration of JP3D

The original Jurassic Park is being released next week in 3D — yes, that’s right, 3 mutha effin’ D. Of course my natural response is to wonder what I’m going to wear to such a wondrous event. 

Have no fear, I found what I was looking for.

Tickled Pink

When the season changes, so does my makeup bag. Therefore, I’m blaming the weather for these purchases. The sun was shining on my face on my walk to Sephora so by the time I was at the register with my routine supplies I noticed all of these randoms in my basket. Oops. 

I just bought myself a one way ticket on the pink and coral train—next stop, SPRING! (choo, choo!)

I’m loving the Melissa x Karl Lagerfeld collection — not all of them are my jam but these pointy toe Mary Jane’s sure are.
