Spring Lipsticks

Monday, April 11, 2016

When the weather starts to get warm or, in San Francisco, less cold, I find myself itching to switch up every item in my makeup bag. I opt for brighter blushes, fun new shadows and a slew of new lip colors. Wallet, beware. I'm going for bolder, brighter, longer lasting shades that can work a full day and still look amazing. 

I could tell I had been on a major lipstick splurging kick recently when I found myself desperately needing an organizer in which I could stack and see (finally!) all the new shades I had. I went for this inexpensive option on Amazon and I'm already loving it. I finally can see all of my lip colors, have space for a few of my favorite skincare items and can also store a few of my favorite eyeshadow palettes in one place. I find that I'm actually going for more and more diversity in my daily looks because I can finally see more of what I own, including a million and one different and new lipstick shades. I've definitely been opting more to pinker shades, both bright and muted, transitioning to darker berry for nights out and long lasting tints for days that I already know are going to be long with little to no chance for a lipstick touchup. 

Check out a few lipstick shades that I have been using and loving lately while I celebrate all things Spring:

Blue Spotted Romper

Sunday, April 10, 2016

I think I may have gone a little romper crazy lately, but when it comes to a comfy look that's also got some serious style, they're my easiest go to look. Rue La La has become my new go to for all things online shopping. When it comes to spiffing up my wardrobe, with a full time and crazy work schedule, it's almost impossible for me to find the time to set aside to hit the mall and scour through the racks for some one of a kind finds, but Rue La La has been making it so easy for me. I already have my sizes saved in the app which seriously cuts down on the time it takes for me to find an item I like and quickly get it before it's gone. One of my first and favorite finds was this Eight Sixty Surplice Romper. 

The long sleeves make it totally work appropriate (yay for start up life!) and it even has a snap button closure to keep my cleavage in check. It also gets serious bonus points for having pockets to stash my phone and lipstick in. The fun polka dot print just makes it so much more vibrant and a serious mix up from my usual striped dresses or solid prints. 

Spring Beauty Wishlist

Monday, April 4, 2016

Spring is probably my least favorite of the seasons, but on the positive side, the arrival of spring means the end of winter so hurray for that! I think my favorite part of spring is really the arrival of a whole slew of new makeup in shades and scents that I am over the moon excited to try out. Pretty pinks, yummy floral scents and mini travel kits of your favorite products perfect for weekend getaways.

I've definitely upped the anty on my spring beauty wishlist this year, but there were so many awesome products that I just couldn't take any of these off my list. Check out some of what I've been loving/coveting lately:
Tartlette in Bloom Clay Eyeshadow Palette // Bite High Pigment Matte Lip Pencil //
T3 Whirl Trio Styling Wand // Oribe Supershine Light Moisturizing Cream //
 Frederic Fekkai Apple Cider Shampoo // COOLA Mineral Sunscreen // Klorane On The Go Essentials // Nars Sheer Glow Foundation // Tarte Rainforest of the Sea Aqua Concealer

Yumi Kim Floral Dress

Sunday, April 3, 2016

I am SO ready for summer. In fact, I wouldn't mind if we just skipped April all together and went straight to Memorial Day Weekend. Sorry April, no hard feelings. The weather has just been so up and down lately, going from warm and sunny to cold and foggy in an instant so when a patch of sunshine came in, I knew I needed to act quick. I threw on my new favorite floral dress, grabbed some sunnies and immediately headed to lunch. 

I was all for wearing a jacket, but within five minutes of leaving the house and walking to one of my favorite lunch spots, Tacolicious (hello amazing guacamole!), I got way too hot and needed to take it off. Thankfully, it gave me the perfect opportunity to show off my new favorite in floral dresses. I picked up this Yumi Kim dress in an awesome sale on Gilt. I was on the hunt for a few dresses that would shake up my stripe dress filled closet and this zipper backed floral print dress was just the ticket. Since then, I've been practically obsessed with Yumi Kim. Her prints are just so upbeat, vibrant and fun. They put me in a better mood just by throwing one on.

As far as jewelry goes, if I'm ever rocking a statement piece, you can almost always be sure it's a piece I picked up from Bauble Bar. I'm a little weary when it comes to wearing anything other than my everyday earrings and the occasional minimalist necklace, but when it comes to showing off, Bauble Bar is my one stop jewelry shop. They always have the perfect accessory to doll up a plain outfit or if I'm ever looking to make a serious style statement.
