  • Can’t Stop Won’t Stop

    I feel like greys are my uniform. I may wear scrubs (aka uniformed pajamas) every day at work, but when I’m not, I’m usually in shades of grey. I have recently been pairing grey with army greens, maybe because of my gorgeous green Chanel classic flap, and I’m loving it. shop the post HB and I visited Asheville, NC this weekend and had such a good time. We will definitely be back.

    The Most Finely Milled Bronzer?

    I’m so impressed with this bronzer purchase. Lord knows I didn’t need another bronzer–after buying the Tom Ford bronzer I actually probably should put it in my will to bequeath to offspring. I’ve heard a lot of people name the Urban Decay Beached Bronzer as their top bronzer of 2016 so I figured I’d see what all the hype was about. It turns out this bronzer, which comes in two shades (I chose the lightest), is super super finely milled. It’s super powdery…

    Winter White

    North Carolina and other east coast states got blasted with a rare snow storm this weekend, and I couldn’t have been more in my element. Lots of you will realize I’m from Texas, so winter weather may not seem like something I’m at home in. But I’m actually half Norwegian, and spent every winter up through the age of 12 in Norway with my dad’s side of the family. I greatly enjoyed putting this outfit together. I’m a rookie when…

    Clinique’s Winning Hybrid Foundation Brush

    I’ve heard many a YouTuber and blogger talking about this brush, and to be honest, at first I thought it was all paid product placement. But I soon realized that these were organic, genuine reactions to a singular product. I had to see what the fuss was about. A bit of a background, though: normally I don’t spend a lot of money on makeup brushes. I’ve been a believer for some time now that wallet-friendly products can do great things for…

    My New Favorite Body Cream

    Clinique snuck up on me with this one. As I was browsing the aisles of my local Ulta store, as you do, I was actually looking for the buff brush that so many bloggers have been raving about, when this little beauty caught my eye. The display held a trio of body soufflés called Clinique Happy Gelato Cream for Body, and this was the first scent I picked up. It also happened to be the standout favorite of the three. The scent is…

    There’s A Chill In The Air

    There’s a slight chill in the air – it’s unseasonably warm for North Carolina this time of year. The thermometer reads 48F – but the rain has no trouble showing up dutifully on time. I always feel a bit gloomy after the holidays have come and gone; it’s so anticlimactic and makes me feel dreary and grey. Shop This Outfit Spicing up my off-day outfit with a magenta scarf like this one from Alexander McQueen (my favorite designer) is a…

    Cream & Cranberry

    There’s just something about this weather that makes me want to snuggle in big, oversized cable knits, throw on some boots, sling a slouchy bag or cross body over my shoulder, and enjoy the environment. Growing up in Houston where hot and humid is the norm, I became accustomed to the desire to stay indoors as much as possible. In a place where throwing open your door is like opening the gates to a sauna and breathing liquid air, I…

    Fall Pop

    The leaves are changing here which is definitely a new thing for me.   Being from Texas where the seasons change only once a year (from hot to less hot), being able to experience the seasons has been one of the best things about moving to North Carolina. Here, I am pairing a pop of red with my perfect fall-to-winter staple: the Gucci Soho Disco in a bright classic color.  I also brought out my favorite camel coat from Zara…
