MOTHERS DAY DIY BATH SOAK

Whenever I could smell the eucalyptus and hear the Enya, I knew it was mom’s bath time. My mom LOOOOOVES baths, and when a mom loves something, you know that’s the only present she’s getting for the next decade, right? So my mom’s bath accessories collection grew to comic re-gifting constantly proportions. She had every oil, every salt, every loofah. […]

DIY DERBY HAT

Two of my favorite ladies are from Kentucky, and proud of it too. Dean and Whitney possess that perfect southern blend of ladylike manners with salty humor. They can arch an eyebrow sharper than a ruler, say “Bless your heart” so sweetly that you’d never know shade was thrown, and are the most fun people to drink mint juleps with […]

NEUTRAL STYLE

I’m a neutrals kind of girl. If you were to bump into me in the street, I’m probably in all black, or mixing it up with a pop of grey. Neutrals are a wonderful shorthand for put together and stylish, but without having to exert extra effort. But here’s the thing about neutrals – they can get boring really fast. […]

SPRINGTIME STYLE

Now that I have a bit of a bump, I’ve decided to go full mumu. When I found this tangerine colored beach coverup at a vintage store in Palm Springs, I knew it had to become part of my pregnancy springtime wardrobe. The color is just so juicy and fun. To ground the ultra fabulous look, I paired it with […]

DIY CONFETTI EGGS AKA CASCARONES

I always feel obligated around this time of year to do some kind of egg DIY, but I’m going to be honest with you…I don’t like Easter Eggs.   They never turn out that well, for me at least, and then they just sort of hang around the house, overstaying their welcome. Do I just…throw them out? After all of that […]

SPRINGTIME MAKE UP

Goodbye winter! After a thorough scrubbing, I am so ready for fun colors and dewy skin! This look is minimal fuss but big on impact. I love the idea of barely there make up and a punch of color with a strong brow. It looks super fresh without being fussy, and is my go-to look for Spring. First, start with […]

GLOWY ROSY MAKE UP

My make up regimen tends to be pretty simple, but for spring and into summer I find myself going for a warmer, more lustrous look. After harsh winter weather, my skin is ready for some dewiness, and my lips appreciate being anything but chapped. So this is the simple but glowy look I go for, by simply mixing up some […]

NO MAKE UP MAKE UP

As I’ve gotten older, I’ve been exchanging make up for skin care, editing what matters and what doesn’t when it comes to my face. For me, dewy, healthy skin – or faking it – is key, moisturized, flushed lips, glowing cheeks, and power brows finish the look. I get lash extensions, so I’ll never appear fully effortless, but man, if […]

CIRE TRUDON

As if this delicious candle wasn’t enough, I discovered it came in a room spray too.  And by room spray, I mean, everything, myself included spray. My favorite candle and room spray in the world is Abd el Kader, by Cire Trudon.  A heady combination of fresh mint, green tea and tobacco, I’ve never smelled anything else like it. And […]

MY FAVORITE KOREAN SKINCARE PRODUCTS

Korean skincare and beauty products have been at the front of trends for at least the last decade, but I’m just starting to cozy up to them. It honestly all started with the sheet masks – those masks that make you look like something between Patrick Bateman and Michael from Friday the 13th. They’re cheap, they’re single use, and they […]
