Dual Intensity

NARS has done it again...per usual. (I'm one hundred percent sure that they can do no wrong.) After staring at the Dual Intensity Blush stand in Sephora for about .2 seconds I decided that one of them was coming home with me. I also decided that I would finally get the Yachiyo Kabuki brush as well.

New In | Zoeva Bamboo Brushes

It's no secret that Zoeva brushes are one of my biggest beauty loves. Few other brushes grace my collection in the same numbers that Zoeva's brushes do. So when their newest collection [The Bamboo Vol.2] landed on my doorstep, I couldn't wait to see what they brought to the table.

Neutral Nails For Spring

This is definitely not a new or groundbreaking idea; but come beginning of Spring I start transitioning out of the bright orangey/reds I craved in February and into light neutrals for my nails. Eventually I'll make my way back into my standard vampy dark shades, but for at least a few weeks neutrals it is!

The Sunday Shampoo On a Tuesday

Last week I hit a point where my hair just felt gross. No matter what I did to it, I couldn't shake that feeling you get when you haven't washed your hair.

Happy Weekend | Flower Friday

Happy Friday everyone! This Friday is especially exciting because of dear friend of mine who I don't get to see too often is flying in this evening. We have a packed Saturday filled with lots of fun plans, and then I'm excited to relax and catch up a bit on Sunday before she leaves. The weather promises to be super pretty (fingers crossed no rain comes our way) so I couldn't be happier!

What all do you have planned this weekend?

Beauty Radar | Rock N' Roll Eyes


Hands down one of the best looks I saw from the S/S 15' runways came from Tom Ford. Charlotte Tilbury created a look reminiscent of the makeup style Brigitte Bardot was known for - a dramatic eye and perfectly pink nude pout. Seventies revival is one of the biggest trends for Spring (think suede for the warmer months and lots of fringe) so the lived in, rock n' roll vibe for the face works seamlessly.

Tula Skincare | Morning Routine

When skincare brand Tula reached out to be and asked if they could send a few products my way I first did a little research about the brand. I'm fairly particular about what exactly I'm putting on my face (a few bad reactions after some spur of the moment skincare purchases can do that to you), but after reading up on Tula I was really impressed.

The March Edit | Current Daily Makeup

Over the past few weeks I've found myself reaching for many of the same products over and over again. With a good consistent pre-work morning routine down pat I thought it would be fun to share it with all of you.

Happy Weekend | Flower Friday

Happy Friday everyone! How amazing has this week been?! Beautiful weather and more daylight in the evenings has made me feel one hundred times more productive. It's amazing what a little sunshine and time spent being outside (and enjoying it) can do for one's mood. After last weekend's bachelorette festivities I'm looking forward to a low-key weekend hanging out at home and catching up with friends.

What are your plans for the weekend? Let me know in the comments below!

Mini Drugstore Haul

As much as I love my high end products I also love a good peek around the drugstore to see what's new and exciting. With a few new releases for Spring and also a few UK based product finds, I figured there was no better time than now to share!

The Easy Contour

When Clinique launched the newest addition to their chubby stick range (their contour and highlight) the beauty world began buzzing. After reading rave review after rave review I finally caved and decided to snag the contour stick.

Spring Essentials With Style Bee

Hello fabulous folks! My name is Lee and I write the life and style blog Style Bee. Faith and I have been conspiring to swap guest posts for a while now and after many months of brutal winter weather it seemed like the perfect time to talk about spring.

Happy Weekend | Flower Friday

Happy Friday! So I've decided that old saying is true - March comes roaring in like a lion and goes out like a lamb. Seeing as this past week was filled with low temps and snow I'm hoping that as the next few weeks go on we see more of the "lamb" side of March. This weekend promises almost tropical temperatures of the mid 40s so I can't wait! I'm spending the weekend celebrating a sweet friend's upcoming wedding and I'm hoping to get in a good brunch. Of course I'll also be snapping blog photos and getting content ready for next week!

What all do you have planned this weekend?

The Night Time Skincare Routine

Skincare is something over the years I've learned to not take lightly. Seeing as I have drier skin (especially during these winter months) I have relied on a few tried and true products to keep my skin smooth, hydrated, and prepped for whatever makeup I may throw on it. While this post is product heavy, I will say that this is more of my "Sunday night" routine. On a regular evening I'm skipping a few of these products and really pairing it down to a simple routine. Sunday nights though are for a long bath, exfoliating, and adding a few extras like eye gels.

A Morning With Diptyque

Last weekend Ashlyn and I had the amazing opportunity to host a lovely event with the Diptyque team at the Pentagon City Nordstrom. We rounded up a few bloggers and all got to spend the morning learning more about Parisian brand and it's products.

OOTD | A Black Out

Oh hey, something that hasn't popped up here in a while...a little style post! Ashlyn and I braved the freezing cold weather on Saturday to shoot a few pictures, and even though it was pretty bitter out I'm glad that we got some shot. My trench is new in from Topshop and I cannot wait for some Spring weather to pull it out and wear it non-stop. I'm also seriously loving this nude clutch and these mule heels - both amazing ASOS steals.

February Beauty Favorites

Another month down! February was filled with some great beauty buys and rediscovering of older products. There was also quite a color theme this month - blushy pinks and earthy bronze colors all over!
