  • The Meaning Behind My Blog Name

    One late afternoon in November of 2009, I purchased some web hosting space, installed the default template in Wordpress, opened up the domain name registrar page....and waited for inspiration to strike.

    Terms of Endearment

    When it comes to the history of this great city I live in, there are a few hidden gems. One of them happens to be the house where they filmed the classic Shirley MacLaine and Jack Nicholson movie, Terms of Endearment. We are frequently in this area of town, so we decided to use the house as our backdrop for today's outfit.

    Argan’t Believe My Eyes

    Pardon the pun. Argan oil is an ancient beauty secret from Morocco that is referred to as "liquid gold" for its nourishing properties. It also happens to be the star ingredient in a number of luxury beauty brands, but never before has it been so prominently part of a collection available in drugstore beauty retailers as it is now. Physicians Formula introduces to us, "Argan Wear", a new range containing the four products you see above, all infused with argan oil.

    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.

    Gearing Up For Summer

    As I gear up for summer (and my vacation to Mexico), it becomes standard that the hunt for summer-proof beauty items begins. This summer, I’m rediscovering the CoverGirl LashBlast Volume mascara. I’m not partial to waterproof formulas as it is too harsh on the lashes. This formula lengthens and provides volume and doesn’t require multiple coats. I also picked up the Olay Total Effects 7 Featherweight Moisturizer. I picked it because it provides moisture, includes a broad spectrum SPF 15 sun…

    Too Faced Melted Metal Lipstick Swatches

    Too Faced have been out with their "Melted Lipstick" range for a little while now, but they only just released a new "metallic" formula that adds shine and iridescence. They sent me a few of their range and I thought I would swatch them for you!

    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…
