I admit, I’m one of those people that overthinks the look I want to have weeks before the beginning of a new season and this spring is no different.

For the past few weeks, I’ve narrowed it down to dark denim pieces, classic tees, crisp blouses, and flouncy dresses. Also, for accessories, I’m thinking about layered dainty necklaces (my spring jewelry staple), stacked thin bracelets/cuffs,white sneakers with clean lines, tan sandals, and black wayfarer style sunglasses.

Multiple Purpose Makeup


Last week, I took on the daunting, yet fulfilling task of downsizing my makeup collection. It was something that was long overdue, because I can honestly say that I’ve only worn about 5% of the items in it.. in the past 2 years.

This downsizing was another task in my aspirations to lead a minimalist life, which is going pretty awesome.

While sorting through years of collected makeup, I realized that a lot of the products that I keep and use are products that have multiple uses and that’s why Paula Dorf’s Perfect Color stick in Ectasy made the final cut and pretty much lives in my makeup bag. Continue Reading
