Playlist: Makeup Obsessed

Lately, I find myself reading beauty blogs and following Instagram accounts like make__up__madness and thebeautyacct.  I’m lusting over shadow palettes and brush sets.  So, I thought I’d share a few of my recent purchases.  The palette above; however, is a great palette from Coastal Scents that I’ve had forever.  And clearly, I love looking at it more than actually using it.

 

I seem to have the biggest makeup dilemma when it comes to mascara.  I do love the Kat Von D mascara, and have been using that for some time now.  But, when I ran out of that I’ve been working my way through a series of samples.  Every time I get a choice of a mascara sample to get with my points I go for it.  I’m pretty impressed with the They’re Real! mascara.  This one is definitely worth getting in a standard size the next time I’m in the market.  Still a few samples to go, though.

I’ve never ordered from Too Faced Cosmetics before, but when I saw their Sugar Pop shadow palette, I had to have it.  I have to say, my experience ordering directly from Too Faced was fantastic.  Quick service, and look it comes in a pretty pink box!

Even the inside is filled with pink packing material!  See, seriously, how could I resist those macarons!

I love the tin itself.  It’s bright, it’s fun, it has macarons as well.  I literally clapped my hands with excitement when I opened the box!

And here’s the palette itself.  It comes with a little guide for three different looks.  Plus, they’ve laid out the colors to make it super easy to coordinate.  And the colors are fantastic.  I’ve used all of them and I love the pigmentation.  I will definitely be getting more Too Faced products in the future!

Obviously, my shadow palette was a little bit out of my normal color range, but I’m so glad it is.  Recently, I’ve done a lot of stepping outside my comfort zone colorwise.  An online group I belong to full of other makeup obsessed ladies has been enabling me like nobody’s business.  They were directly responsible for the Too Faced palette, and also for my Urban Decay eyeliner habit.  They kept talking about the Asphyxia liner so much that I had to pick one up on my last Ulta spree.  I’ve used it several times and love it.  I’m finding the need for a whole drawer full of UD liners.  As you can see, I also brought home a new OPI polish.  This is Shine for Me from the Fifty Shades of Grey collection.  It’s so pretty on.

And then, I decided to spread the love and place a Sephora order too.  I’d recently found out that they still had the limited edition Urban Decay nail polish in stock after one of my polish divas ordered it.  When they released these, I opted for Addiction which was a gunmetal grey that I fell in love with similar to Chanel’s Graphite.  But, then later I saw a friend wearing Vice and lamented not buying it when I had the chance.  But lo and behold, Sephora still has it online!  So, Vice was mine finally.  I also decided to order a new lipstick, because who doesn’t need a new lipstick every once in awhile?  After seeing some of the publicity around Kat Von D’s unaplogetically named Underage Red, I decided a bright red lipstick that I couldn’t say no to.  And for my free samples, I chose a couple of perfumes (I’ve been wanting to try some Elizabeth & James) and a Smashbox Photo Finish primer.  Very happy with my loot!

And finally, I had to share the new perfumes Eric gifted me with.  D&G Light Blue and Thierry Muegler’s Alien Essence Absolue.  The Light Blue is perfect for summer, and the Alien is perfect for nighttime or fall/winter.  It’s a spicier and woodier, which I love in a heavier fragrance.  I’m still wanting to add to my perfume selection though…all in due time.

Playlist: Winter White

Winter White

Some things I’m loving…

Winter, and January especially, is all about white or hushed tones and a bit of sparkle.  I have to share something I’d been coveting forever, and finally treated myself to, in December.

ac70dc55f11dde49e7171a38dac5d310

This is the Shoshanna Amulet from BaubleBar.  I love love love this necklace so much.  I bought it specifically for our holiday party, but I have worn it all throughout December and January and I’m sure it’s going to be on repeat throughout the rest of this season.

I’ve also been in a huge organizing mode, and one of the things that’s really drawing my focus is my makeup storage.  What I have now isn’t working for me, and I’ve basically used the same storage/organization for years.  I’ve spent some time on Pinterest looking at some different options and I think I have some good ideas to get started with it.

1e164dbd40e47a0e82e0f20c629e4ec6

My jewelry organization is definitely in need of a good overhaul too, and I’ve been eyeing this Pottery Barn large jewelry box as a great option.

d3c7d88bd93118d4a02e691298e1e51c

Of course, the other thing that’s been getting my attention is our home.  The Christmas decorations are packed away and the house is back to normal.  I love love love all the seasonal decorating that fills our home, but come January I am ready for it to be tranquil, peaceful, quiet.  And all that energy of the new year is swirling around, so I’ve been adjusting some things, moving a few things around, organizing our books…those sorts of things.  It feels good.  And while the rest of the year, I am all about color – in January, I long for whites and neutrals.  The trend of turning books with their pages facing out absolutely fills that need right now – plus, I love this photo.

tumblr_ngqk9viyeP1t1cy7no1_1280

And I’m very excited for the release of the next Cupcakes and Cashmere book, aren’t you?

10903580_1545861955653806_1176032282_n

And of course, I can’t overlook my absolute adoration of the white winter coat.  I want to trade in my black wool coat for something brighter.

My style idol agrees…

75e98c3d8deeeb9d4bbbeeed9deae3b9

Or maybe the palest of pinks?  Loving the pairing with white skinnies too.

tumblr_neku2snPes1u0c595o1_1280

And lastly, I had to share…I did something sweet for myself and bought some white peonies for an arrangement next to the bed.  They’ve already made me very happy.  They make me feel very decadent.

Limsanity and Other Adventures in Fashion

PhillipLim9.15.13_edited-1
It hardly seems possible that September seems like a distant memory now, but that’s what happens when life is full.  But, let’s go back for a moment to the beginning of September, NY Fashion Week, and yes…the release of the Philip Lim collection for Target.  I don’t remember there ever being such a huge buildup and resultant craze over a collection like this since the Missoni collection was released back in Fall 2011.  Just refreshing Twitter or Instagram was a full-time workout to see what eager fashionistas were scooping up.  Needless to say, the hot pieces in the collection became harder and harder to come by as the hours and days wore on.  As much as I would have liked to, I didn’t manage to get my hands on any of the pieces.  If I had though, I would have definitely picked up these…

All of the leopard print items in the collection were fantastic.  I love the abstracted pattern in mustard and navy combination.  And it was seriously cute on.
14617742_201308061452
The sweatshirt made a comeback with this bold graphic.  Such a fun piece to dress up or down – love this look especially.  And I was no fan of the corresponding sweaterdress with the weird silhouette and chiffon skirt at the bottom (it did look so much better with the hem of the sweater pulled up higher rather than leaving it drop-waisted).  But, some crafty ladies took the liberty of removing the chiffon skirt entirely and I think it really was a much cuter look (in fact I like the navy sweater better than the grey sweatshirt, honestly).
14617867_201308071412
And then there’s the bags.  It always kills me to see people snatch up cartfuls of bags with the sole purpose of keeping the one or two they want and selling the rest for crazy prices.  I just think that kind of behavior ruins it for everyone else.  If I’d bought a bag, I would have gone with the larger satchel, but the yellow mini is just too lovely.  Sigh.
Mini Satchel with Gusset - Yellow
So, now fast forward to February and the highly anticipated Peter Pilotto for Target collection just hit stores on the 9th.  It is also available through Net-A-Porter too, which is nice.  I think my favorite pieces in the collection are this blue dress and then the strapless one.

Seriously amazing color and pattern play.

The fun, neon prints are perfect for spring and summer.

There are some great blog posts of some of the pieces in OOTDs here and here.  But, you can also find a plethora of posts over on Instagram under the hashtag #peterpilottofortarget.  Here’s a little taste though…

Oh and I can’t forget some of the accessories that are available.  Love the sunglasses…

…and the tote!

I haven’t picked up any items from this collection either, but it’s fun flipping through all the IG photos and blog posts to see how they are added into wardrobes.  Wonder what’s next?!

Things I Love Thursday: Louis Vuitton Spring 2014

Louis Vuitton : Runway - Paris Fashion Week Womenswear Spring/Summer 2014

My love affair with Fashion Week has gone from NY to London and now to Paris. Oh I cannot wait to be in Paris in February! The photos that started flooding my feed yesterday of the Louis Vuitton show were so striking I knew I had to find a video of the show.

As Marc Jacobs’ final collection, I thought it was the perfect culmination of the past with the escalators, the corridors, the carousel and the fountain – in black.

louis-vuitton-rtw-ss2014-backstage-10_123935719811_carousel_parties

It was solumn, gothic, stunning, and full of the lavish detail that we’ve come to expect from Louis Vuitton.

louis-vuitton-details-spring-summer-2014-pfw6

Beading, peacock feathers, lace, and leather in only black with the only counterpoint being denim jeans. I really can’t get enough of watching this show.

An amazing farewell to Marc Jacobs for Louis Vuitton.

Things I Love Thursday: New York Fashion Week

NYFW-2012

NYFW has come and gone once again.  It’s been so fun this season to not only see the pics of the shows pop up on Instagram, but also to see the live streaming from the site.  Almost felt like I was right there, except that there were no fun parties or photos of my daily outfits.  The big trend that I saw was lots of pops of neon.  In fact the Lulu Frost presentation was called Neon Baroque – a fun spin on a modern Marie Antoinette.

Lulu Frost Neon Baroque

Can’t get enough of those amazing statement necklaces and of course the long tutus were a perfect combo with the fitted corset.  I may need more neon in my life.  I read in a magazine not too long ago that it’s fun to pair bright nails with darker fall/winter outfits – not only does it make that pop of color so much more striking but it also brings a bit of brightness into those overcast grey days.

One of the first shows I streamed was the Marissa Webb runway.  I absolutely loved the lines of the clothes – very geometric.  Plus the combo with leather was fab.

Marissa Webb NYFW 1

This black dress was one of my favorites.  Not overly dramatic from the front, although I love that leather corset.

Marissa Webb NYFW 2

No, the big draw for me was the back.  Just that extra bit of interest.  Almost leaning to harness rather than corset.  I love this look.

Marissa Webb

There were also plenty of bright and flowy in the mix, like this gorgeous orange floral from Rebecca Minkoff.  So delicate and oh the movement from the fabric was stunning.  Notice also that braids played a big part in NYFW this year.

image-minkoff-spring-2014-29

More braids – and I love the very modern patterning from Nicole Miller.  It looks a bit like stained glass, but I love that the colored print is against a white background.  It makes me think of modern art like Cubism.  And the peplum just adds to the geometric shape of the dress.

nicole-miller14

Naeem Khan runway (braids!) took that patterning and detail to the next level.  Look at how rich this is.  And I love it in cocktail length.  That is one hot dress.

Naeem+Khan+Runway+Mercedes+Benz+Fashion+Week

Rachel Zoe never disappoints.  Her pieces were very safari-inspired.  I fell completely in love with this little black and white number.  Rachel herself wore this for her show as well.  It’s got that same delicate flowiness to it that the Minkoff dresses have, but this one doesn’t have that sweet appeal to it.

Fashion Rachel Zoe Spring 2014

And while I mentioned braids were everywhere on the runway, Rachel Zoe really did it best with this deconstructed braid.  It was messy and wild – an untamed look to go with the pieces.

Rachel-Zoe-Spring-2014

Kate Spade – you know I love me some Kate Spade – had some fun pieces for SS14.  I can’t get enough of this bright yellow especially the lemon-print dresses and skirts.  Love!  And take a quick peek at the mani – a little reverse French mani with a pop of neon pink.  So fun!

kate-spade-presentation-new-york-fashion-week-spring-2014-19

And along with all the runway shows and presentations, some of the most fun pics came from Instagram and the lovely ladies attending NYFW.  I had the great fortune of stumbling across Courtney Kerr’s Instagram, and immediately followed.  I watched her on Most Eligible Dallas and was happily surprised to see there’s a spinoff show coming soon on Bravo.  Love her, and especially could not get over this amaze t-shirt she wore at a Lulu Frost gathering.  I totally need this in my life – “You Can’t Sit With Us” t-shirt.

Courtney Kerr You Can't Sit With Us

And since I’m behind on posting about NYFW, I’ve also been able to enjoy the shows from London, Paris and Milan FW.  My favorite at LFW was the Burberry Prorsum SS14 runway.  Talk about a beautiful show!  So happy to see that mint is still hot and look at all these gorgeous pastels – complete with rose petals for the finale.

Burberry Prorsum LFW

My absolutely favorite look from this show was the gorgeous jewel embellished skirts and trench.  I mean talk about sparkle!  I love how the circles of gems plays off the lace patterning.  Gorgeous!

Burberry Prorsum Spring 2014

I also loved the black and white – it’s like polka dots but taking it one step further.

Burberry Prorsum LFW 2

And this sweater – I cannot get enough of this sweater.  Sweet and sexy with the bow and the open back.  There’s something about those details on the back that get me.

burberry-prorsum-rtw-ss2014-details-062_151753318223

That’s all from me on Fashion Week…but oh what inspiration.  I love seeing how trends we’re seeing now are reinvented for next season.  S0 much fun!

July in Photos

July in Photos

This summer is just zooming by like nobody’s business.  Frankly, July was a rough month.  Started out fine but then it took a nosedive.  My crazy work schedule took over again and a lot of late nights left me feeling overwhelmed and stressed.  Near the end of the month I made some adjustments in my attitude and did my best to start looking at things from a place of gratitude and abundance.  Amazing what a difference that makes.  Two things that have really helped me are the IG posts from @tarotandtea, particularly her daily tarot advice, and Katie O’Keefe’s blog and IG.  I’m loving watching her moving through #intentionalaugust and #mth (making things happen).  Both are two roads to the same destination, a destination of re-engaging with myself and what means most to me.  All a work in progress, but I’m feeling a lot better equipped to deal with the “stuff” that’s going on in my life right now.

So, what adventures did I get up to in July?  It was so nice to have a long weekend for 4th of July, and you can see I celebrated with a fun mani.  I spent a day with some girlfriends over that weekend too – I even baked cookies!  Eric and I opted to not go out to see fireworks, but instead we enjoyed the evening at home and watched some of the specials on tv.

We had lots of rain in July and it actually made for a much cooler summer than we’re used to in Texas.  I love it when it rains, so it’s always a little bonus.

As part of my attitude adjustment, I spent some extra time on myself – nails (of course), some new makeup (eyeliner and powder), dug out my favorite summertime heels (don’t those cherries kill you?), and some summery statement necklaces like my starfish that jingle!  I even went through all the lipstick I have hoarded in my purse.  Amazing what you find in there.

I had a little bit of relaxation time that I spent working on a gift for my Goddaughter (a summery yellow quilt) and catching up on my DVR’d shows, namely the red carpet from the Oscars.  Yes, it was in February.

Eric and I also did something for ourselves, we finally ordered our frame for the photo we printed from our honeymoon so we could hang it over our bed.  The frame is perfect and goes beautifully with the warm tones of the sunset from the top of the Spanish Steps in Rome.  Apologies for the reflection/glare in the photo…but trust me it looks wonderful.  And it allowed us to mark our bedroom as complete on our home improvement list.

So that was July, and we’re already halfway through August so I’d better start thinking about my August in Photos post!

Things I Love Thursday: Birthday Crushes

gilded_arrow_bangleMy birthday is coming up next week, so I thought it would be fun to use this week’s TILT post to show you some things I’m crushing on right now.  Plus, what’s more fun than putting together a dream wish list?

Right now I seem to be all about bracelets.  There’s such a fun selection of bangles available right now, probably due largely to the “arm party” trend.  And I’m so happy to see gold making a comeback.  I absolutely adore the arrow bracelet from Stella & Dot.  There’s just something so simple about it.  Makes me think of Katniss, Cupid, and my imagined alter ego who excels at archery.

My wishlists always seem to have something of the practical side to them too.  Lately, I’ve been keeping a running tally of things I need rather than want – shorts, sandals, bras…basic stuff.  So many things that are falling apart or don’t fit.  One of the things that’s become a bit dire of late is that I’ve completely run out of perfume.  I know – #firstworldproblems – but, I’ve even gone rummaging through my bathroom cabinets in the hopes of finding some of those little freebie tester perfumes.  No dice.  So, a bottle of perfume falls more into a necessity than a pure want, but I had to include it anyway. At the top of my list of perfume wants is Lady Gaga’s Fame.  It’s black, which tickles my little Goth heart so much, and it smells delicious.  It’s described as “Enriched with tears of belladonna, a black veil of incense, and pulverized apricot, this fragrance may cause illicit fits of extravagance, unrivaled rushes of adoration, and prolonged moments of ecstasy and rapture.”  How could I not want this?

Fame

You may recall last year, when I decided that my birthday really needed to be an extravagant, Marie Antoinette-inspired, and fun?  I’m absolutely going to continue that tradition this year.  So, I’m thinking macarons are a must.  Because, why not?  It appears that there are a few bakeries in Dallas that are now offering macarons, so you know I will be scoping them out.

macarons2

I have been seriously wanting a maxi dress for- I don’t know -ever.  I’ve yet to own one and lately my interest has been rekindled by some IG photos of some lovely ladies who purchased this maxi from Target.  It’s a steal at $29.99 and I love it.  The kimono-style sleeves, the chevron print.  Gimme.

Maxi dress

And back to the bracelets.  I’ve been really wanting a mint link bracelet, but since Fall seems to be quickly approaching, this tortoiseshell link bracelet from T+J Designs is killing me.  Gorgeous!Tortoise Chain Bracelet

And you know my continued love affair with all things Kate Spade.  This KSNY Twist and Shout bracelet brings a smile to my face.  It reminds me of my sweet German friend, and of course sharing a pretzel with my darling husband.

Twist and Shout Bangle

I’m also thinking forward to my springtime travel and realizing that I still don’t have a good camera bag.  I’ve been looking at these Kelly Moore bags for a while now, and I really like the look of them.  The B-Hobo bag looks roomy enough to carry what I need plus it has both a zipper and the flap to keep everything inside safe.  I’d like to be able to try one out and see what I think in person, just have to see if someone in town carries them.  But I really adore this mustard color.

Kelly Moore B-Hobo Mustard

The best gift I’m giving myself for my birthday this year – a week of vacation.  I have been working so much this year and such crazy hours that I know I need some time to relax and regroup, plus time with my family.  I intend to do some fun things like going to see the first Mortal Instruments movie with a friend, a fabric shopping day with a friend and maybe catching up on some of my reading or DVR’d shows.

Things I Love Thursday: Summertime Style

miu-miu-parrot sandals

Today is the last day of Spring, and tomorrow is the official first day of Summer.  Although here in Dallas it’s been in the 90s already, so it has felt like Summer for at least a few weeks.  Being a Summer baby (August), I love this time of year so I thought it was the perfect subject for a TILT post this week!

This morning I was perusing Instagram and saw a photo from alixcherry wearing these Miu Miu parrot sandals.  Gorgeous!  So perfectly summer.   I’m so in need of a new pair of sandals.

shorts

The one wardrobe essential every girl needs is a pair of well-worn pair of cutoffs.  I sure wish I could find my old (well-loved) pair.  They were my “studio” shorts that I seemed to live in throughout my ceramics, etching, and painting classes.  But, in lieu of those I did make myself a new pair of cutoffs last weekend.  They’re not quite “lived in” yet, but they’ll get there.  The other thing I love about cutoffs is that you can dress them up or down.

Style Within Reach Summertime Staples

Style Within Reach had a great photo on Instagram of her OOTD on Tuesday that’s a perfect example.  And bonus, it features another fab summer trend – lucite necklaces!

tumblr_mom0sa8uZe1qgx1spo1_500

This one was from Glitter Guide’s IG/Tumblr – and it’s a gorgeous lucite statement piece from BaubleBar.  Same one Style Within Reach is wearing in her OOTD.  It’s fun, it’s funky, and it’s got an airier feel because of the lucite which is perfect for summer accessorizing.

White polish

And of course, I can’t forget another perfect summer trend – white polish.  I’ve been seeing it everywhere, but first noticed the look back during Fashion Week at Kate Spade’s SS show, white manis and pedis.  Love it.  In fact, I think white polish is in order for my next mani.  Can’t go wrong with that!  (and how much am I dying over Kim K’s evil eye bracelet??)

Things I Love Thursday: Catching My Eye

Crescent Hotel BH

Today’s TILT post is going to be rather a mishmash of things that are making my heart beat a little faster this week. Last night the photo above of the Crescent Hotel in Beverly Hills stopped me in my tracks. I’m so completely in love with the hummingbird painting/print above the bed – such an amazing statement piece.  And the pendants on either side of the bed are beautiful as well.  They actually remind me of the lamp I have next to my bed.  Anyway, Eric and I have been working on some changes around the house and desperately need a focal piece over our bed.  I think we’ve settled on one of the photos he took in Rome, but now we need the perfect frame.

I’ve also been looking for a new wallet.  Mine is starting to look a little worse for wear.  I’m loving this patent LV – bringing a little bit of sexy back to my purse.

LV Sarah Wallet Vernis

I’ve been looking at the pave link bracelet trend that I’m seeing everywhere.  Especially fun in colors like pink, teal, emerald!  Lately I’m finding myself drawn to wearing bracelets, so I’m thinking I may need to add a little sparkle into the mix too.

T and J Pink Peonies

I’m obsessed with Moroccan style, as you know, particularly the dramatic rugs.  This one from West Elm was recently featured in Bri Emery’s office makeover.  I just love this rug so much.

West Elm Kasbah Wool Rug

And, per usual, I am way behind on my DVRed shows (still need to watch the Oscars, in fact).  I’ve had a couple of evenings at home and I’ve been catching up on The Carrie Diaries.  Have you seen this show?  Of course, Sex and the City was always near and dear to my heart – particularly as a single girl.  I was skeptical about Carrie Diaries (and still mourning the ending of Gossip Girl), but I’ve been pleasantly surprised!  It’s fun, it’s young, and OMG it’s taking me right back to highschool.  The music, the clothes, my subscription to Interview magazine…so much win.

Carrie Diaries

If you haven’t been watching, you should definitely check it out.

So, that’s just a quick little look into what I’m loving this week.  I’m glad that tomorrow’s Friday and I’m hoping to get some time this weekend to make a little progress on a few projects I’m working on around the house.  I still need to blog about some of the design changes that have been going on at the house too – we’re nearing completion on most of the rooms in the house, which is really satisfying.  So, more to come on that.  Until next time, what’s catching your eye lately?

First Days of Spring

Oscar Red Carpet
With the first day of Spring this week, my thoughts turn to clear sunny days and soft colors.  Although this morning is full of thunderstorms and chilly winds.  But, I can indulge in my little piece of Spring right here!  Lately I’ve been catching up on my DVR’d shows, which includes several hours of Red Carpet watching.  Seems the days are gone when I can actually watch things live.  But, what surprised me about this year’s Oscar Red Carpet was the overall softness of the colors.  There were very few bright colors, particularly the emerald green I was expecting to see everywhere.   But there was no lack of gorgeous dresses to choose from, as you can see above.  One of my favorites was Jessica Chastain in that amazing coppery beaded Armani Prive gown.  So many subtle shades.

And Chanel has released their lovely Spring collection of nail lacquers, Printemps Precieux.  You know I normally go in for the dark, vampy colors like Accessoire, but I’m really drawn to Emprise, which is a rosy beige.  Perfect almost nude nail that would go perfectly with a brighter wardobe.  And Fracas, who can resist a pretty, bright pink?  This one will most definitely transition into the summer months.

Chanel Spring 2013
Even Starbucks is celebrating Spring in Japan with their new Sakura line. It even includes cherry blossom macarons (which you know I can’t resist).  It’s too bad that this lovely pink deliciousness won’t be available in the States, but from what I hear the taste (not cherry at all) might not translate to the American palate.  But what fun a pink latte would be (as long as it’s not strawberry, since I’m allergic!).

starbucks-japan-sakura-drinks-2013
And I saw a photo on Instagram the other day of the new Coach handbags in Mint.  I can’t resist, such a gorgeous color for Spring.  Too too tempting. Alas, I am on a new handbag hiatus, so no Coach bag for me. But look at those fun tassels too.  Gah!

Coach Bag in Mint
I did have to indulge in my own version of that luxurious mint color though. How do you like my Essie Mint Candy Apple mani this week?  Perfect, huh?  Such a fun color.  I’ve really enjoyed wearing it.

Mint Candy Apple
And how can I resist anything in a bright pretty yellow?  (I can’t) Of course, the J Crew bubble necklaces are almost everywhere these days, but I just love it in yellow.  A fun bright pop of color against a subtle colored top?  Love.  It.

What’s bringing thoughts of Spring to you this week?
