LA doesn’t feel nearly as chilly after returning from my extended weekend in Nashville, but I still find my wooly coats to be comforting and cozy in the evening when the temperature drops!
I’ll be honest, it’s unrealistic to expect to be able to roll out of bed looking like Alicia Keys. But don’t worry… sometimes just a few dabs and swipes of 7 magical things can make all the difference in looking “naturally flawless”. Here are a few beauty tips (and products) I have learned through the years that will help you look your best in 5-10 minutes.
It’s the day when I finally put on my new studded flats and let those perfect pale pink leather soles touch the ground. For the money, you would think they’d feel ah-mazing on your feet out of the box, but no, even $$$ luxury flats need breaking in (but they’re colorful and they make me happy!!!). :D
If you see someone holding up traffic downtown today because they take too long crossing the street, you’ll know it’s me. I shall tread very carefully…
Mr. Forstadt nailed it when it came to birthday and holiday gifting this season. Sure, my wishlist helped a bit (does my jacket look familiar?), but he picked these glittery lightning bolt kicks himself!
Pom poms! Holidays! Wrapping! Origami! Animals! Ribbon! Read more!!!
Hey! It’s finally feeling like fall in LA! I have put all tank tops on hold and have pulled out my big box o’ tights to help transition some dresses and skirts into the cooler months.
I don’t wear many mini skirts. But I did make an exception for this one when I saw the unique asymmetric color blocking and the eye appliqué. And, it is surprisingly versatile – it can be worn on cooler days with tights, boots, and a sweater or during the summer with a cute tank and sandals.
Hi! I hope you all had a very happy Thanksgiving! I certainly had my fill of stuffing and pie, so to keep myself from feeling too guilty, I make an effort to get out for quick workouts when I have 10 (or even 5!) minutes to spare. My go-to 10 minute workout consists of a few 10 second sprints, lunges, leg lifts, crunches, and of course stretching before and after. And I you’re like me and mostly have capri-cut leggings/workout pants, I also wear knee high or over-the-knee socks to cover up since it can be pretty chilly in the morning. No need to buy full length pants!
I have an outrageously-unattractive laptop bag that I bought for $30 while in college. I got so used to taking it to work with me, I never once questioned it… until Adam saw me pick it up on my way out the door and mentioned that it ruined “my look”. Sad face. Thus I started hunting for one that I’d be proud to tote around…
Anyway, if you’re like me and you’re working on wish lists for the fam or trying to drop hints for your significant others, perhaps my list may be of some inspiration to you. Bonus points since most of these are steeply marked down!
