foil nails

I guess I am not quite over nail art. I spotted this pretty foil manicure here and am itching to try it! Are you so over nail are, or still feeling it? xo

put a crown on it

Want to know where my head is at right now? With all of the recent changes in our lives, I couldn’t really tell you. I can tell you what is on that head, and it is pom-poms, headbands, and CROWNS. Read more…

girls with glasses

I am on a quest to embrace my glasses. Don’t get me wrong, I love glasses, when I see them styled just right, when the design is phenomenal- I can’t get enough. Read more…

Madeline Poole

With a little practice my home manicure skills have been steadily improving, but my skill set looks weak next to Madeline Poole‘s nail artistry. I mean, they really speak for themselves. Wow. Read more…

set the mood: pastels

I used to hate pastels like it was my job. With a passion so strong you might have suspected that if the Easter bunny was to show up with a basket full of pastel eggs I would have taken him out back and shot him. Too far? Well, I really wanted to convey this hatred of pastels. Slowly as pastels have gained in popularity I have seen them styled to perfection. Mixed with patterns, neon, and brights I have found a place in my heart for them. I think that the images from the Chanel 2013 cruise collection set me over the edge. The pastel styling was over the top, and I found myself falling. Recently I have visions of pastels swimming behind my eyes in this candy land dream sequence. Here is a little glimpse… Read more…

high glamour

Hello luvs, I hope you had a fabulous weekend. I had to share these images from Birchbox’s Pinterest. I love these high glamour looks. I want to learn how to pull off such intense eyes and voluminous hair. I am going to start practicing my eyeliner skills. Don’t worry, I’ll let you know how it goes. I will be back tomorrow with a little more substance…just adjusting to my slightly transient life in Dallas. Do you all love these images as much as I do? Read more…

THE best nail polish removers

Yes, I am making some bold claims over here today, but I am extremely confident. I love nail polish. I usually paint my nails at least once a week, and if I’m feeling indecisive or need the zen of nail painting, sometimes more. Since my favorites include some very dark colors and a lot of glitter, a polish remover that takes the hassle out of the process is a must. It is also important that the polish doesn’t kill my nails. I have two nail polish remover favorites. The first is Zoya Remove Plus Nail Remover. Read more…

hair inspiration: brigitte bardot

Summer in Texas is hot. So hot.  A great up-do is a summer essential. Brigitte Bardot is a huge inspiration for totally glamorous, slightly unkempt hair.  I need to get the guts and make my own tutorial, but for now I am going to put you on the right path… Read more…

what is it about red heads?

Today I watched Crazy Stupid Love.  I saw it in theaters last summer and re-watched it today.  OH, I love it. To me, it has all the elements of a fantastic movie- love, sweet moments, great makeover, and different story-lines intersecting.  What it reminded me of today is how much I love a good redhead.  Natural or not.  Emma Stone and Julianne Moore were both breathtaking with their locks.  I would almost try it, except that my hair is so fine it would probably just crumble off my head with that kind of color treatment and maintenance.  My sister is thinking of going more red and I totally support it.  I mean…I think the images will be enough to convince you! xo Read more…

scent love

I signed up for Birchbox in the summer and I have been obsessed with these adorable boxes full of beauty goodies ever since.  It is a box delivered to you every month filled with 4-5 beauty samples from luxury brands. Each month includes a different mix of product types, including makeup, skincare, fragrance, body, and hair care.  They are awesome.  It is a little treat that is perfect for the beauty junkie.  Their site sells full sized products as well.

louis vuitton animated short

Oh, this video is just, eh-hem, charming.  I know, I know, that pun was terribly painful.  Seriously, my dad is a pun master and they just come to me.  I put a great deal of brainpower into not spewing out every pun that comes to mind.  If you are still reading, thank you.  I stumbled across this new animated short, The Great Journey of Little Bagcharms, via The Style Caster.  Created to honor the release of their new balloon charm, the video is stylish, spunky, and best of all includes mountains of googly eyes.  This happy little 2 minute 40 second video gives the prefect little dose of creative fun to a very traditional brand.  Happy viewing and I hope you are having a great weekend.
