Light as air

Pink is my favorite color, there’s no doubt. It always looks good! From either extremely hot pink to pale soft pink, it’s always gorgeous. Pink floral prints, pink polka dots, there’s not comparison.  Needless to say, there is a lot of pink in my wardrobe.

I love how these nail strips turned out. They are fun, but easy to pair with outfits. It’s just the right hint of color.

My outfit was comfortable, but cute in its own way. I love this scarf, but sadly don’t wear it that often. The pink flowers are what draws me to it, and paired with a loose top they work perfectly with sleepy mornings. Oh, how I am ready for the weekend!!

And just for fun, here’s an out-take when my cat became interested….

Here’s a sneak peek at my upcoming project this week:

I love nail art, and since I don’t have time to do something so intricate myself, I’ve resorted to nail strips! They are easy, and quite fun! They also come in as many colors and patterns as you can imagine. Perfect for the girl that changes her mind all the time.

Now I can match my nails to my outfits! Dorky I know, but it’s such a simple pleasure and a way to treat myself every time I glance at my nails.

Check back soon to see how I styled them!


Just a little dab of this…

I love makeup just as much as the other girl. Over the years I have experimented, and now have my morning routine down to a few simple steps. I have tried countless brands, from drug stores to high end cosmetics. These are a few of my favorites that I use every day:

From left to right: Sephora concealer, Clinique tinted moisturizer (with spf!), Tarina Tarantino mascara, Clinique eyeshadow, Cover Girl gloss balm, Paul & Joe powder (with spf!)

My favorite is the Clinique tinted moisturizer. It has a touch of color to make my pale complexion look alive, with spf to protect my skin all year round. I don’t like foundation, nor do I really need it every day so this works for me just fine. The powder from Paul & Joe also has a bit of spf in it, so combined with the moisturizer my skin is safe from the sun.

The eyeshadow is a duo of pinky-brown colors that look great with my pale complexion. I occasionally use brown eye liner as well and smudge it to create a smokey eye look to make my eyes pop. It’s just enough color without going over board.

Finally, after many years of searching I found a great fragrance that I can wear every day without going overboard. Chloe’s perfume is subtle yet feminine, and the bottle is gorgeous just sitting on my dresser.

What makeup do you really like? Hope your friday is lovely, I’m off for the weekend on a little trip. If you get a chance, check out this great website and spread some love….
