1. Eddie Redmayne, your freckles are beyond. 2. There are many things I love about Creature Comforts, but the Color Inspiration posts are the best. 3. I am feeling this curly, chin-length bob. 4. I must say, I’ve become relatively proficient in reading and breaking down food labels, and this post by A Dinner and […]
Ladies. LADIES. Just try to tell me you don’t experience major flashbacks when browsing through these lipstick shades from the past few decades. Toast of New York! Wine with Everything! Silver City Pink! Memorieeeeeeeeees, light the corner of my liiiiiiiips…
1. Let’s talk about the house, guys. I realize I kind of left you all hanging with all the updates and then….nothing. Well, we’ve been working hard to finish the space, and we are getting really close. (Although, come on, you are never really “finished,” but that’s the fun and/or frustration of it all.) D […]
Yesterday at lunch, for fun, I asked Wito what he thought the big trend would be at the Oscars that evening. He tilted his head, paused for a moment, and said, “Silver. Sparkly silver, mom.” Well, the kid called it, and I have to say, absolutely loved all the metallics and pale neutrals. Sometimes you […]
1. I’m always trying to figure out how to create a smoky eye that is more subtle/demure, less vampire/whorehouse. Love the above look, and all the products used are listed in this Glamour article. (And speaking of vampires, that actress is dating Peter Facinelli, aka Carlisle Cullen, who used to be married to Kelly from […]
Ladies, I’ve been meaning to write this post for months. After years and years of trials and tribulations, I have found the holy grail in mascara. (And you all know I’ve tried them all, right? Drugstore, high end, what have you…have. tried. them. all.) Are you ready? Benefit They’re Real! Mascara. Hands down, this is […]
I’m still stewing over the big chop, which really shouldn’t be a surprise to anyone since I don’t possess even a sliver of the “oh what the hell, just do it” gene in my body. Nope, I approach my hair decisions exactly like I approach every decision in my life — very methodically, looking at […]
I just love this illustration I found on Pinterest. It’s a perfect guide, really. image source via Kim Pertinent
You can use all the bobby pins you want, but if you want your updo to truly last all day, it’s what you do to your hair BEFORE you put it up that matters. Check out my tried and true tips at Style United.
Here’s the segment on double duty beauty products that aired last month on Marie, if you are interested! (It’s hard to keep a straight face when I’m referred to as a “beauty expert.” Let’s go with beauty enthusiast next time, okie dokie?)
It seems I’m not the only one feeling shorter hair these days. According to The New York Times, model Karlie Kloss’s new chop is the haircut of the year. Vogue declared it the “cut of the moment” in a four-page feature story in the January issue, saying “the season’s new hair is swingy, sexy — […]
1. Rachel Weisz, you were Old Hollywood perfection last night. Well, at least from the mid-thigh up. Wasn’t really a fan of the bottom of this dress, but I’m boring, so there you go. 2. Mandy Patinkin, you were robbed. ROBBED, I SAY! You deserved that award, sir. (I also enjoy your beard.) 3. Whoah! […]
While we’re on the subject of hair, can I express just how badly I want Anne Hathaway’s pixie cut? I’ve been thinking about this long and hard, and here are my thoughts on the matter. Reasons why I should go for Anne Hathaway’s pixie cut. 1. It is something completely unexpected for me. 2. It […]
I love red carpet hair, but I hate creating red carpet hair. If you’re looking for some easy ways to fancify your tresses for an upcoming event, look no further than my Lazy Girl’s Guide to Red Carpet Hair. If I can do it, you can do it. Fist bump.
Merry Day After Christmas! We are in Oklahoma enjoying family, eating/drinking our way into a comatose state, and freezing our tushes off. (All of that complaining about our frigid 59-degree Newport Beach winter season? I take it back. It currently feels like -134 degrees here in OKC.) Hey, if you plan on laying low by […]
