I have to admit – I’ve been slacking on the blog posts lately. Blame it on the holidays. Blame it on the shortbread cookies too. They’ve made my fingers so fat that I can’t type without hitting two keys at the same time. Valid explanation.
I owe you.
Here are this week’s FAVS.
Everything about this outfit is perfection. The hair, the makeup, the ankle length frock, and the faux (please let it be a faux). This is the perfect way to style a dolled up look. The bedhead is a must, the light eyes and the red lip, and the casual aura doesn’t make it look to overdone. I’ve been trying to perfect this hairstyle for quite some time. Muse indeed.
I found Lush’s Godmother soap in my stocking this Christmas. Huge eyes right now. Snow Fairy is my favorite Lush scent and this is like Snow Fairy x 3.
Okay maybe it’s not my absolute favorite but the feeling I get after running is pretty good – especially since I know my piggish ways over the holidays are being rectified. I usually do 1.5-2 miles a day but I’m stepping up my game this year so I run and do a cardio HIIT workout in addition. I’ve been using Nike+ Running for a couple years now and tracking my runs is motivating and pushes me to run farther and harder. Recommend.
My sister got me this little gem for Christmas and I am in love. Like, obsessed. Naked 3 who? This luxe palette has so many different shades of shimmer it’s insane, and they really compliment my skin tone, which is a huge issue for most people with lighter shades because the color doesn’t always appear as vibrant. Anyway, dying over this.
FAVORITE LIP COLOR
Feeding my NARS collection, I picked up this nude shade last week. Isola Bella. The most perfect nude with just the right amount of orange tint. I’ve been rocking the dark shades lately and this is a nice little break. Perfect for everyday wear too.
Eggs Benedict at Palomino. I’m drooling just looking at this photo. Hollandaise on the side was necessary, so were the balls of potato and mushroom. So amazing.
I recently purchased the Wildfox Dreamer sleep shirt and have been living in it. It’s by far the most comfy, most luxe, and prettiest fabric ever. True to Wildfox’s style – obviously. There’s no way I was going to pass up the separates below. Plus they’re black, I need both colors. I hope my NY resolution isn’t viewing this right now. It would be disappointed.
Toasting to another year full of opportunity, new resolutions and tons of new outfits. I have so much to be grateful for. Here’s to 2014.
I’m a huge fan of mixing girlie with casual basics and this is the epitome of just that.
