Published in: Daily Photo

Dear 2013,

Thanks for resurrecting rose gold from the depths of obscurity and thrusting it back into the mainstream metallic metal spotlight.

Love you. Mean it,


It’s been two full years since rose gold officially returned and became a thing again (gosh, time flies!), and the trend is still alive and kicking.

I figured it was one of those trends that I would eventually get tired of, and maybe I will, but as of now, I’m still into it. I like how it looks on my skin, and it’s neutral enough to wear with almost anything.

First Tomatoes of the Season!

Published in: Daily Photo

My tomato plants have finally…tomato-ized!

Meet the first small batch of the season. I’ve named these three Tyler, Artemis and Carnegie, and I’m still deciding whether they’re going to become bruschetta or Tuscan bread salad.

The struggle is real, homie. It truly is.

Garden fresh tomatoes, babe — if you haven’t gone there before, you need to get on that ASAP. They’re so much tastier than store-bought. I think it’s because they get to fully ripen on the vine, so there’s no transportation time. Don’t be surprised if your eyes roll back in your head when you take a bite.

Now I need to go get some good bread…

The Kate Spade Packable Straw Fedora: Some Hats Were Made for Packing, and That’s Just What They’ll Do

Published in: Daily Photo

Can we talk fedoras for a minute?

Every summer I try to avoid them, because I’m not Justin Timberlake, and sometimes I feel like he’s the only person who can legitimately pull them off.

But some fedoras are really cute.

Really, really cute.

I spotted this one at a Kate Spade store last May and struggled, unsuccessfully, for weeks to erase it from my Lust List, only to eventually give in after employing every excuse in the book.

  • “I need a hat to protect my hair color!”
  • “I’m going on vacation!”
  • “It’s my birthday month!”
  • “There’s a bow on it!”

Honestly, though, this hat is awesome. It’s the pinnacle of summery straw hat fedoras in that it’s not only super cute, but it’s also packable, which means that you can store it flat in your bag or luggage, and then when you unpack it at your destination, it pops back into shape.

A Little Obsessed With MAC Tropic Tonic Matte Lipstick

Published in: Daily Photo, MAC Makeup

MAC Tropic Tonic Matte Lipstick ($16)

If there were a book titled, “Chicken Soup for the Makeup-Lover’s Soul,” I bet the cover would have a picture of something coral, because a lot of the time when I feel stuck in a rut or just generally blah, I turn to coral.

Like MAC Tropic Tonic Matte Lipstick, my latest coral crush. It’s one of the new $16 Matte lipsticks MAC recently added to their permanent line.

Like a slightly redder Vegas Volt with a flat matte finish instead of MAC’s Amplified finish, it looks particularly fetching (I think) with black winged liner.

Très retro-fabulous.

You can find it now online and at MAC stores and counters.

On the subject of MAC’s Matte Lipsticks, which are your favorite ones? Inquiring minds want to know.

Your friendly neighborhood beauty addict,


P.S. Happy hump day, by the way. :)

A Little Bit of Bling Always Banishes the Blahs: The Kristin Perry Sunflower Stud Earrings

Published in: Daily Photo

I still have love for oversized hoops and dangly chandeliers (they’ll always be among my ride-or-die accessories), but I’ve been diggin’ stud earrings lately.

Particularly big-honkin’ ones like these $42 Kristin Perry Sunflower Stud Earrings.

They’re 14K gold-plated with a stainless steel stud back and glass crystals in the middle, and I like that they’re kind of vintage and kitschy. They remind me of something Kate Spade might carry…but for, like, twice the price.

On a related note, isn’t it funny how your personal style and the things you like can change over time? There was a time when I would only wear silver jewelry.

Did you ever go through a silver phase? I wouldn’t touch anything gold with a ten-foot pole, but now I’m all about gold anything. :)

I don’t know when it happened or why, but I’m back to loving gold.

One time years ago my mother-in-law told me that when you stop wearing silver and start wearing gold, you’re officially old…

LOL! I don’t know if that’s true (I really don’t think so), but I do know that I mostly wear gold earrings and necklaces these days.

If you’re interested in these (aren’t they cute!?), they’re available now at Kristin Perry’s online shop. Check out her stuff sometime! She’s an L.A.-based indie designer, a great gal, and I love, LOVE her stuff. It’s like Kate Spade with an edge.
