Valentine's Day Beauty Inspo

















What are your plans for Valentine's Day? I'm actually crashing my parent's date (so embarrassing I know) but hey that doesn't mean I can't look nice right?! I've rounded up my favorite lipsticks for the evening-- or year round really!

Nars lip gloss in Angelika-- This is an amazing every day gloss. I will definitely repurchase this color when I run out. It's totally subtle yet glamorous. Throw it in your purse and you will thank me!

Bobbi Brown lipstick in Neon Pink-- OK this lipstick is really pink but I'm digging it. Don't be scared by the word "neon!" I affectionately refer to this baby as my Barbie lipstick. It's a great color for spring and summer.

Bare Minerals Marvelous Moxie plumping lip gloss in Game Changer-- My lips are pretty thin, so I'm always a sucker when I see the word "plumping" on any lip products. I don't know if my lips actually look any fuller while wearing this gloss but my lips feel tingly when I first put it on, so I'm going to pretend like I'm Angelina Jolie when I wear it.

YSL lip stain in Rouge Gouache-- Okay I admit I initially bought this lipstick because of the pretty bottle, but it is easily my favorite lip stain in my beauty bag right now. It's a gorgeous color, and it stays on literally all day. Seriously. I put it on around 11 am and it survived through this photo shoot, chimichangas for lunch and pizza for dinner (I'm on a diet obviously). If you buy one product from this post, buy this one!

What kinds of beauty posts would y'all like to see on my blog in the future? Spring makeup trends and must-have travel products are the next ideas on my list! xx

Updated Classic










Whenever I find a tweed jacket that reminds me of Chanel (minus the price tag), I grab it. This is definitely not your grandmother’s tweed jacket! The cropped silhouette, cool exposed zippers and fun fringe totally modernize it. I work in a casual environment, so I just throw it on over jeans but it would look great more dressed up too. How do you like to dress for work?

You know I can’t resist pink on pink, so I paired my new Kate Spade bag (happy birthday to me!) with this relaxed T-shirt. The actual color online is called “pink bouquet.” How cute is that?

Happy Wednesday! Only one more day until Scandal, How To Get Away With Murder and Grey’s all come back! My Thursday nights have been torture without my Shonda shows! Get your wine and popcorn ready!

Getting Ready For Spring

Okay so I know it’s only the beginning of February but I’m super over winter clothes. Raise your hand if you’re with me! How am I supposed to shop for bulky sweaters and scarves when there are pink pineapple bikinis out there?! I have warm weather on the brain anyways, because I’m heading home to LA to see my family this weekend. Why is it only Monday?! What are you excited about this week? : )

Valentine's Day Gift Ideas


Ladies, forward this blog post to your main squeeze if he needs some help in the gift department this Valentine’s Day! I don’t think he could do any better than these Landeau roses! Aren’t they beyond gorgeous? Swoon!

I always love making little Valentine’s Day packages for my friends. This Starbucks gift card is perfect for your co-workers and besties. I don’t know about y’all but caffeine is the way to my heart! A Starbucks gift card is basically pure gold in my eyes!

 Calling all my single ladies— treat yourself this Valentine’s Day! If I was going to splurge on myself, I would probably have to go with these hot pink Manolos. #Obsessed

What’s on your V-Day list?

Girl Power







Jewelry: Love necklace (similar), The Peach Box bracelet, Anne Sisteron love ring (similar)

Isn’t this a top you just instantly love?! The butterfly sleeves remind me of a cape, so I think of this as my very own pink superhero outfit! Obviously, I was always the pink Power Ranger when we dressed up as kids. #GirlPower

Vanessa and I took these photos outside Houndstooth Coffee. If you’re a coffee junkie like me, you need to try Houndstooth. They have great coffee, a relaxing vibe inside and a total photo-op worthy wall. Exactly what we need to get this Monday started! xx
