SUMMER LASH FAVE: MARC JACOBS BEAUTY COLORED MASCARAS

I have wanted to do something about my lashes ever since I came to terms with the fact that eyelash extensions just aren’t for me (they require too much maintenance, time, money, etc). Then I discovered Marc Jacobs Beauty O!Mega Lash Volumizing mascara ($26) in fun colors–which are perfect for summer–and the cutest way to lengthen and jazz up my almost nonexistent lashes. Besides black, this line of mascara is also available in these vibrant colors: Peacock (teal) Garnet (brick red) Think Ink … Continue Reading »

STRIPED TOP AND COLOR POPS OF PINK AND YELLOW

Hello! Hope you’re having a great week. I never wear stripes and this Forever 21 tee has been hanging in my closet for months. It was probably going to get the axe (either donated or demoted to a sleep shirt) in my next KonMari cleanout, but then I bought yellow shoes and everything changed. I’m loving the combination of black and white with splashes of yellow (and pink!). It’s fun, summery, a little bit 80s, and somehow very classic. Whenever I see Christian … Continue Reading »


STREET LEISURE: SPLATTER TOP AND CUT-OFFS

A quick hello as I’m fighting off yet another cold. I’ve been sick so many times in the recent months probably because of the abrupt changes in weather (June gloom and layers one day, blazing saddles and tank tops the next), the weird bugs Eddie brings home, dehydration (been running on coffee only ever since we got a Keurig), and my nonexistent running and weight training regimen. I guess right about now (halfway through the year) is a good time to re-evaluate those … Continue Reading »


PINK PURSE UPGRADE: DEFURIA BEVERLY HILLS TOPANGA BAG

Hi! So recently I sold my faithful pink Prada crossbody purse. It was cute and really bright, and we had a lot of great times together, but I knew it wasn’t The One and it was time to let it go. The strap was too short and its main material was nylon. Certainly I could do better. Once I shipped it off to its new baglover, I felt good about making room in my closet, but at the same time I felt so empty … Continue Reading »


COLOR WALLS: FEELING THE BLUES

Hi, just a quick hello to share some of the shots that I took with my friend, @tazcatphoto at the color walls in downtown LA. We were having fun and testing the camera on the new Google Pixel phone. The shots came out pretty great. I know the “I may have forgotten my pants” look is in, but nope, I haven’t forgotten–I’m wearing shorts underneath this tunic top. Okay, okay, I never wear blue lipstick in real life. In fact, Eddie banned me from wearing … Continue Reading »
