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 […]

Playlist: 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. This is the Shoshanna Amulet from BaubleBar.  I love love love this necklace so much.  I bought it specifically […]

Limsanity and Other Adventures in Fashion

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 […]

Things I Love Thursday: Louis Vuitton Spring 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 […]

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 […]

Things I Love Thursday: Birthday Crushes

My 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 […]

Things I Love Thursday: Summertime Style

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 […]

Things I Love Thursday: Catching My Eye

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 […]

First Days of Spring

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 […]

February in Pictures

I can hardly believe another month has come and gone.  February was a rough month for me.  It marked the one-year mark of losing my dad.  It still feels fresh, and he was on my mind a lot this month.  Work was also very intense this month, but I did manage to take a couple […]

Things I Love Thursday: Bond, James Bond

It’s possible, and very likely, that I’ve mentioned my love of James Bond before. So much so that Eric and I recreated a tasty cocktail in honor of Casino Royale.  I grew up watching James Bond films.  The first one my parents introduced me to was Thunderball.  Both of my parents loved Bond movies, and […]

New Beginnings

Things I Love Thursday: butter London Polish

It’s that time again!  And since I seem to be overindulging in the introspective soul searching posts lately, I thought I’d focus on something a little more fun for my TILT post.  For Fashion Week, one of my favorite new polish brands introduced a couple of new colors.  This one is called Fish Wife.  So […]

Feeling Fallish

I’m ready for fall.  It’s just barely September, and there’s always the question of whether or not to wear white after Labor Day.  But, even though it’s still over 100 degrees out, all I can think of is fall fashion. I’m longing for tights and wearing layers… New fall bags…   Coats and scarves and […]

Pooltime Lime

So, last week I decided I’d leave my toes in Fear or Desire orange.  But, I wanted a change of pace from the bright summer colors I’ve been drawn to lately.  I needed something darker… So last week’s mani was Essie Sexy Divide.  And I’d forgotten how much I love this one.  It really is […]

A Little Shopping Excursion

Yesterday I went and got my hair cut and brows waxed.  While I was getting my hair done, she also did an extra botanical hair treatment to help protect my hair through the summer months.  I always feel so good when I get my hair done!  Afterwards, I decided to do a little shopping since […]

Manicures, Polish Hoarding, and Swatchicles

I painted my nails for the first time in several months (horrors, I know) last week.  I had a function to go to and COULD NOT show up with naked nails.  After much deliberation, I decided on my very favorite polish – Chanel Peridot.  The last time I wore this polish it chipped badly within […]

Girls’ Day Out

A little while ago one of my closest friends was visiting from Germany.  We got together with two more girlfriends and had a lovely day out.  I took a few photos to record the day, and just wanted to share them.  First we went over to the mall and spent some time at the MAC […]

I’m so behind in posting here.  I will get caught up one of these days!  But, I just had to pop in to show you something I’ve been absolutely enamored with.  I think I may have mentioned that I’ve been in dire need of some new perfume for awhile now.  I’ve been trying fragrance after […]

Blowing Out the Candles

I actually had a lovely birthday.  So far it feels good to be 40.  My mother made me a delicious lemon meringue pie.  A co-worker brought red velvet cupcakes to work for me.  I got to spend time with both friends and family without too much drama.  Eric took me out to a fantastic restaurant […]

Wednesday Walk: New Dress

Long day today. Today was the first of three days worth of all day meetings. I decided to wear my new dress. Eric bought it for me while fending off the advances of the salesgirl. The things he does for me! But, anyway, love my new dress. It’s a little out of my comfort zone, […]
