    Fall Favorites!

    Its that time again! Time for a seasonal favorites post! And since today is the Winter Solstice, the official end of fall, I’d like to share my fall fashion/beauty/read and eat favorites. Fashion   These past few months, with the weather turning chilly and rainy, I’ve turned to cozier fashion items. What does that mean? Turtlenecks, so many turtlenecks. I’ve added to my turtleneck collection. What can I say? It’s a long sleeved top and scarf all in one. Genius. The one pictured above is navy striped from Madewell. The next item is my Everlane cashmere mock-neck sweater. I’ve blogged about it already (here), so I won’t bore you be rehashing…

    My Foundation Collection

    I like collection posts. I’ve done a few (lipcare, eyeshadow pallets, nude lipstick), but never a foundation collection. Today is the day! I’m very picky when it comes to foundation. Who isn’t? I want a medium coverage that can build to full if I need it, a satiny finish, something that blends well, and lasting power! Foundation is also something I don’t like to straight up buy online.

    My First Pair of Aquazzuras

    Remember that post I did about my luxury wish-list a few months ago (here)? It featured several pairs of Aquazzuras. What can I say? I just love their edgy and sophisticated design. Well, a few weeks ago it was black Friday. See where this is going? Matchesfashion had these beauties on sale. And in my size! So I did it, I took the plunge. Treat yo-self. Coppery rose gold, just under 3 inch heel, and the cutest buckled straps you ever did see. I’m in love. They came in a very fancy box (not the Aquazzara box, but a fancy gift box from Matches) and included the dust bag you…

    Winter OOTD: Keeping Warm with Cashmere

    Winter outfits. That struggle to look fashionable when all you want to do is walk around under layers of sweaters and poofy coats like a polar bear. I think I may have found the answer: cashmere. Is it expensive? Yep. Is it finicky to care for? Yep. Is it unbelievably warm and soft? Yes! Last weekend I had a bunch of black Friday returns to make (online shopping is hard!). The weather here has turned cold (as least cold as far as the Pacific Northwest goes), but I didn’t want to wear a heavy coat all day. I also wanted to be comfy. The answer? Leggings, cashmere sweater, and over-the-knee…
