the balm

I love love love this lip balm ring by Rodin for three reasons: 1) Its all-natural; made with jasmine, orange flower oil, shea butter, beeswax, and castor seed oil. 2) The blush hue goes on sheer and treats your lips to a healthy, moisturized look. 3) Hello, the ring! It totally reminds me of the '90s. So convenient and just cool. If you don't like the idea of a ring, slip it on a chain and wear it around your neck.



bow down

Emmanuelle is the shit; she knows what she likes, knows her style and is comfortable in her own skin. She embodies that coveted Parisian effortless style that so many women try (and fail) to emulate. Hands down one of the best dressed during last fashion month. And ever. 

PS- Belted jacket. That is all.

vamos a la playa

I'm currently writing this post in the middle of a snowstorm. Its almost April and there's a snowstorm. Words cannot express how sick I am of winter. If you're like me and don't live in summerland (i.e. California or Hawaii), I suppose there are ways for us to channel the amazingness of being on a beautiful, warm beach. The above four things may help:

Spritz some Beach by Bobbi Brown (on your skin and/or around your apartment). This eau de parfum smells like saltwater, sand and sun. It is literally the beach in a bottle.

Slip on a bikini, like the Melissa Obadash Sao Paulo bikini (above), and watch a young and yummy Leo in The Beach cavort around shirtless on the gorgeous beaches of the Phi Phi Islands (Koh Phi Phi), Thailand. I might actually watch this today to try and forget about snowmageddon happening outside.

And lastly, a chic beach bag by Michael Michael Kors that can easily double as a city bag.
