June 2011

It’s summer! Time to experiment with some bright and delicious lip colors reminiciant of Popsicles and Koolade! Neon pink is a huge trend for summer 2011. Some helpful tips and my favorite colors are listed below. Pucker up!

Tips for wearing bright pink:

• Keep it simple! With such a bright lip color, you’ll want to make sure you go easy on the eye makeup, especially if you’re planning on wearing this as a casual, daytime look.
• Along the same lines, don’t overdo it with the blush. Too much pink on your face isn’t going to be a good look for anyone!
• Get your undertones right. When choosing a lipstick, you’ll want to select one with blue undertones if you have cooler skin, and if you have warm undertones, then you’re better suited for something more orange or red-based.
• Test it out before you buy. It’s always a good idea to actually try lipsticks before you buy them, since buying them blind is a bit of a gamble – you can never be 100% sure the color will suit you. So head to Sephora or a makeup counter and get testing

Some favorites:

• YSL “Provocative Pink” $34
• MAC “Pink Nouveau” $15
• Chanel Coco Rouge “Chance” $32
• MAC “Show Orchid” $15

A few favorites for this Saturday morning

Adorable sandals, the perfect fragrance, bunches of white roses, a trendy time piece and some luxurious lotion… You’re set. 😉

There is nothing more beautiful than the light glimmering off an ornate chandelier, a sprinkling of sequins and exquisite pieces of jewelry — creating perfect elegance — making every moment feel a little more luxurious.

Wishing you a perfectly romantic weekend

If I had one wish, okay maybe two — I am sure I would be much more pragmatic with my first wish — I would wish to have fresh flowers in my home at all times. These peonies are stunning, they are like ballerina tutu’s. Stunning seems an inadequate adjective to describe them.
