From Street To Face

I've been a little obsessed with makeup recently (can you tell?), and I just can't seem to get enough! But I'll bet you're most likely in the same boat, considering the look these days just screams classic movie star hyped up with modern day sex appeal. What woman wouldn't want to embody that look and feel? And much to my delight, darlings, Lancôme just revealed a new collection named after its original Parisian boutique at 29 St. Honoré full of products that capture the magic of 1940s Paris. I'm just tickled pink. And red, and maroon, and blush, and...

Fall Made Up

No doubt you've already been out shopping fall's latest looks, but don't forget to update your makeup routine to go along with all your fab new finds! Perusing the runway had us noticing two major trends: bold eye brows and bold lips. And if done right, they're two bold looks that are easy to achieve!


The first step to full brows is to stop over-tweezing! General maintenance is key, but the skinny thin brow look is definitely out. Next, fill in your arches with a matching eyebrow pencil. We recommend Laura Mercier's eyebrow pencil; it comes in five different colors to ensure you get the right match.


Luscious lips don't have to be difficult. And berries and reds are absolutely foolproof for fall. If you can get away with it, skip the liner, which only ages you. And choose a bright color that is sure to get you noticed, but also matches your skin tone. We've found that Mac Red is a good fit for most. Or you can try the color in the lead photo, which is Rouge G de Guerlain in Garconne #25 (not yet available). And if it's your first time rocking red? Yes, you will feel like a clown. But wear it anyway; trust us, every woman feels that way when first donning the bold shade. But you will quickly start feeling comfortable and look stunning in the process!

Sweet Dreams

With some things in this world, you either love it, or you hate it. And I LOVE this bed. In fact, I don't see how anyone could hate it, unless they were absolutely tasteless and blind! The decadent leafing, the ornate carving, the wonderful package that is this bed from And So To Bed? Stunning. And a perfect place to lay your head for numerous nights of lovely dreaming.

Little Bout of Heaven

I know, I know. I just posted so many yummy salad recipes to help with that last summer slim down, and now I'm messing it all up by posting this delicious, "pure perfection" dessert. But I couldn't help it: These Meyer lemon coconut and white chocolate cakes are just too beautiful not to share! And they'd be a perfect late summer afternoon treat. oxox

Home Away From Home

Aaaaahhhh, French Charmers, it's one of those days again where it's all I can do to not book an impromptu trip to Paris and throw it all on my nearly maxed out credit card. You only live once, right? Sigh. Tell that to my dog, who'd probably starve if I did a crazy thing like that. But to satiate my ridiculous thoughts of blowing caution to the wind without actually doing so, I love to look at different hotels throughout Paris. One I've always wanted to stay in is L'Hotel, which is actually one of the most famous in the city. It has that old-fashioned French charm that just screams romance, and it even used to be the home of Oscar Wilde! Tres chic.
