HG Edit: The Perfect T-Shirt

As I've mentioned before, my style has evolved quite drastically from early days of this style & beauty blog.  No longer am I interested in adding layers upon layers, stacking rings and bracelets galore.  I'm more interested in quality, minimalism, and investing in pieces that will stand the test of time. 

Because of this evolution and the fact that I realize I haven't shared this process with you yet, I've decided to start a capsule collection of posts that I'm calling the "HG Edit" (HG stands for Holy Grail).

Sale-acious Summer!

Nordstrom’s The Half Yearly sale is in full swing! Today I visited Nordstrom and picked up this vest top, these socks (I got three assorted pairs), and these rainbow aviator sunnies ($12!). So much stuff was on sale it was incredible! I’ll definitely be back, probably to pick up these Stuart Weitzman “Naked” sandal lookalikes (seriously, they’re an incredible copycat!). Shopbop – there are quite a few new items added to the sale, some up to 70% off! Um hello, when does…

Calypso Relaunches Fragrance Collection

Happy birthday to me! I had the complete privilege to be able to preview the newly-relaunched Calypso St. Barth fragrance collection, which includes their signature scent "mimosa" and two brand new scents, "fig" and "casablanca". Each one floats on a breeze of effortless chic. "mimosa" smells effervescent, like the signature cocktail, it is lighthearted and whimsical. "Fig" is fresh with a subtle spice running underneath it, and "casablanca" smells like the sunset at an Italian villa full of free spirits.

Consignment

As a beauty and style blogger, you know this girl can accumulate quite a fair few treasures. I also have hoarding tendencies, but thanks to my husband’s suggestion and the power of the Luxury Managers via the White Glove service at The RealReal, I’ve managed to select a few treasures from my collection that I want to see in a better home. A home where they can be cherished, loved, and not relegated to one of my closets, packed prettily…

What’s in My Bag & Makeup Bag

Every so often here on my blog and my YouTube channel, you’ll find that I share the contents of my handbag. This time of year it’s no different, and I am excited to share that this video was filmed to be interactive – you can click through the video to see what’s in my makeup bag as well! If you’re on a mobile device it won’t be interactive, so for your convenience I’ve included the makeup bag video below.

Splurge or Steal: Zara Checked Scarf

Last winter, anybody who was anybody (or fashion bloggers who just like to enable one another) owned the Checked Scarf from Zara (pictured above, left). Pinterest was rife with outfit pictures featuring this gorgeous blankety oversized fall staple. At $30, it certainly wasn’t a steal, but it isn’t exactly Hermes prices either.  The kicker is – that was 2013. This is 2014, y’all, and it’s time to jump back on this oversized plaid scarf bandwagon. There’s just one problem: you…

Fall Fashion & Beauty Haul

I love haul videos – they make me so excited to watch and get me raring to shop. Ironically, many of my hauls are the direct result of watching other people’s haul videos on YouTube. (A haul video is one in which a person shares their recent shopping finds and splurges.) Thanks for watching and I hope you enjoy! Please subscribe for more (free) videos.
