1 Lipstick, 4 Ways


Bright, punchy lip colors are super popular right now, but do you really wear mega-bright lipstick on a daily basis? Personally, I want to make sure I’m getting the most bang for my buck when it comes to wearing those kind of shades. Here’s a video I made for Style United on how to create 4 different looks with just one highly-pigmented lipstick. I used CoverGirl Lip Perfection in Eternal in the video, and Revlon Super Lustrous Lipstick in Fuschia Fusion for the above photos.

(Hahaaaa, I’m totally flipping off the camera in that still. Sweet.)


Salt Optics (+ Giveaway!)


Oh, y’all. I am sick with love for Salt Optics. The sunglasses, the optical line…I want every single pair of frames from this Southern California-based line.

I am all about simple design, and Salt Optics is an independent lifestyle company that creates premium handcrafted eyewear for people who like simple things made well. The company is completely driven by a minimalist sensibility, which means timeless, interesting designs every time.

The minute I step outside, my Odette frames are always on face, and my Jane frames are in heavy rotation indoors as well.

The fine folks at Salt Optics have offered to give one pair of frames (up to a $400 value!) to a lucky whoorl reader. (And I do mean lucky because you will never take these bad boys off again. Ever. Sunglasses at night…the whole thing.)

To enter, visit Salt Optics’ website, and leave a comment on this post letting me know what pair of frames (optical here, sunglasses here) is your absolute favorite. The giveaway will end Friday, June 15th at 6pm PST. Good luck!


My Show, It’s Almost Heeeere


The first episode of my talk show airs next Tuesday. Woot woot! (And I say that in a full on early-2000s-hands-in-the-air-cheesefest manner.) Starting next week, a new episode will air every Tuesday at CafeMom Studios on YouTube. In the meantime, here’s further proof that I might be a little cray cray.

I hope you all will tune in!


Wedding Weekend


We are having such a great time in Oklahoma – so great, in fact, that I’m trying to give my laptop a little breather. However, I did want to post a few photos from the wedding since you all were so sweet about Wito’s wedding outfit. As you can see, he was as dapper as ever (even though I left his suede bucks at home…Type B+ mom in da house!), and Wita looked beyond lovely herself. (However, the loveliest distinction goes to D’s sister, who was a stunning bride.)

Now, if you’ll excuse me, I’m in the process of checking these to-dos off my list. Talk soon!
