Lace up details and over the knee boots, could it get more trendy than that? Trends are a funny thing, some stay season after season, while others quickly fade.Read More
Hi all, Hope you had a great weekend! I had a work weekend where I prepped and shot a feature in the magazine Where Women Cook. I prepared several recipes, styled a dinner table, as well as they shot my kitchen and some of my favorite things. I am very excited to see the outcome! Anyway, onto my latest beauty find, a 5 minute makeup look. Charlotte Tilbury has done it again with her latest release, a numbered palette for the woman on the go! I really love this for days I want a natural and fresh makeup look. Here is what I do to achieve this:
- Start with my foundation and concealer per usual and move onto the eyes. I
- I will casually sweep (1) Brighten all over the lid and brow bone, (2) Enhance on the lid, and (3) Smoke in the crease and along the lower lash line. Finish off with a lash curler and mascara.
- I then dip into (4) Bronze (aka her famous Filmstar Bronze n' Glow and (7) Highlight.
- Dip my into the (5) Swish more along the cheekbone and (6) Pop on the apple.
- Finish with some lipstick or gloss.
The colors are very subtle, but I do like that it is easy and great for touch ups on the go. If the colors are too subdued for you, I heard through the grapevine that they are coming out with a more vibrant palette for Summer.
SHOP THE LOOK:
Weekends in Los Angeles are a vast playground of neighborhoods, activities, markets, and events. This past weekend I strutted along the infamous Melrose Place, a well known haven for bloggers and the like. It’s picturesque setting makes for a lovely Sunday spent window shopping, having a tea at the new Alfred’s Tea (I highly suggest the Thai Tea,} and making yet another purchase at Violet Grey, for a lipstick I don’t need, but have to have. Outfit attire is quintessential California with this dreamy blouse from Isabel Marat Etoile, a tattered pair of One Teaspoon shorts, and these lace up sandals that I still can't get enough of! If you're ever in Los Angeles, a swing by Melrose Place is a must.

SHOP THE LOOK:
Warm weather is right around the corner and I have slowly started transitioning some heavier pieces out of my wardrobe, while scouring the internet for new possible additions! This gauzy white blouse and perfect denim shorts has caught my eye, along with this lustworthy suede bag and knotted lace up sandals. Beauty bag additions come in the form of this all natural cream bronzer and a new hydrating moisturizer, which can all be captured in this mediterranean print cosmetic bag. Safe to say I am very much looking forward to summer fashions!
