Odds and Ends


1. Drumroll, please! The winner of a fabulous pair of Salt Optics frames is #40, Jenna.

Congratulations, Jenna! You will be rocking some frames very shortly.

2. Last night, I attended the launch of Wendy Bellissimo’s new line of clothing and accessories for children.

I die. The end. (I also stood next to Sharon Osbourne at the bar. AUZAY!)

Wendy is selling her line exclusively on Gilt Baby & Kids, and it started this morning. Click here to see the adorableness. Right now. You won’t be sorry.

3. You guys, I have created the ultimate running playlist. I’m patting myself on the back over here – it’s only taken, oh, about 4 years to do it, but it’s awesome. That post is coming next week.

4. I posted this photo on Instagram last week and got lots of inquiries about this blouse.

I got it from (duh) J. Crew, and it just so happens be on sale + an additional 30% off. You’re welcome.

5. I want to do a summer makeup tutorial for you all. After many fruitless attempts, I think I’ve perfected a natural, dewy look! (It’s the look I’m wearing in the above photo.) That’s coming soon as well.

6. The second episode of The Sarah James Show is live. This one makes me laugh because I pretty much forced my guest to put her hair in a top knot in front of the camera sight unseen. She totally did it on the first try, and for that she is a rock star. This episode talks about my favorite hair products for getting out the door quickly, masking dirty hair, tips for hair while working out, and fun accessories to spice up your look.

7. Is eyeliner not your friend? I did an Eyeliner 101 piece for Beauty and the Beat, and it spotlights the 6 most commonly used eyeliners, as well as my favorite YouTube tutorials on how to apply all of them. Sayonara, raccoon eyes!

8. I am still eating the chocolate sheet cake. How do I stop? I’m thinking of pulling a Miranda and dumping it in the trash while covering it in dish soap. Please tell me to cease and desist.



  1. Life As Wife says:

    The link for the Gilt Baby clothing line is not working :(

  2. This sounds like some great stuff coming up. I need a good playlist and I can’t wait to see what songs you have to share.

    I am loving the Sarah James Show so far. Congratulations on a job well done.

  3. Or if you’re Tamra from RHOC, “cyst and decease.”


    Alright, heading over to see about this eyeliner, which is only my favorite piece of makeup ever.

    Can’t wait for the running play list! I have been trying to master that as well, and with a half marathon approaching I need inspiration!

  5. Dump the sheet cake! Cover it in salt and dish soap and take it out with the trash OR just sit down and eat the sheet cake in one sitting and be done with it ;)

  6. I say eat the cake. You’ve earned it.

  7. Oh just eat the cake (and post the recipe too so we can all eat it. Or have you already done that??). Very much looking forward to the dewy makeup tutorial. I’ve been neglecting my makeup application lately (ie letting my skin breath!) and could do with some inspiration :)

  8. very excited about your running playlist!!!
