Throwing together a few neutral pieces for a beautiful spring day in the city! It's still not quite warm enough for short skirts/dresses, so full length and a cardi are necessary. Hope everyone has a great week!

Rimmel London Stay Matte

Mar 30, 2014


rimmel stay matte
Happy Sunday Funday! Recently I got to participate in Rimmel London's "Stay Matte Challenge." I love trying new foundations and I'm always looking for a new favorite. For me, the best combination is great coverage while still being lightweight. I put Rimmel London's Stay Matte Liquid Mousse Foundation to the test and here are the results...

Rimmel's foundation was super easy to apply and gave me great coverage. The liquid mousse texture felt amazingly lightweight and I loved the matte finish (especially helpful since I tend to have oily skin). Clearly you can tell in the Before picture that my skin is not flawless, but in the After picture you can barely even see my pores! The foundation lasted me all day and I couldn't be happier with it. Oh, and the other amazing thing about this foundation is I chose my color online, which has never worked out well for me before. But Rimmel has an awesome feature on their site where you can upload a photo of yourself and "try on" the different shades to find your perfect match. Go ahead, #MeetYourMatte. I'm making the #StayMatteSwitch!

Enter the Stay Matte challenge yourself by writing a blog post or filming a YouTube review of their mousse foundation. Tag it with #staymatteswitch and submit the link on Rimmel's Tumblr. They're giving away 10 makeup prize packs so you can create endless London Looks. Rimmel's also doing a sweepstakes for 5 iPad airs that you can enter by taking a selfie and sharing it on Twitter, Instagram or Tumblr and tagging #StayMatteSwitch and @RimmelLondonUS. Good luck!

Tahoe

Mar 27, 2014

Last month we made a trip up to Tahoe, during a time that it happened to be snow storming pretty hard. While I wouldn't necessarily recommend doing a trip during a snowstorm (for reasons like chains falling off, cars getting stuck in the snow, and lots of shoveling (which I was blessedly spared from because the manly-men handled it)), we still had a great time and it was absolutely beautiful. I don't think I've ever seen that much snow in my life!

Over the weekend I got to check out MAC's new flagship store on Powell Street, and let's just say, it's not to be missed! The store is full of bright colors, amazing artists, and a makeup studio in the center that feels both private and special, yet lets you see the entire store. I thought the design was incredibly well thought out and I loved every aspect of it.

Btw, here are some of my favorite MAC products that I scored this weekend (the Haute and Naughty mascara is a bit of a game-changer—my lashes were so thick and voluptuous!). What are some of your favorites? I'm dying to try out some more so I'd love to hear your recommendations...

Huge thank you to MAC for the wonderful Saturday!

Floral nail art

Happy first day of spring everyone! And happy Persian New Year—Eideh shoma mobarak (gettin fancy with the little Farsi I know)! It's time to break out the floral prints (I know, I know, "Florals for spring? Groundbreaking." -Meryl Streep, Devil Wears Prada). I can't help it, after the cold weather I'm excited for pastels and brights and flower prints. To help welcome in the new season, the Topcoat team painted this amazingly detailed mani for me. They're like little works of art! If you're in NYC or SF you can book an appointment with them (they'll even come to you), or you can swing by their nail studio at the Crocker Galleria.

Happy Monday, people. I wore this outfit to a fun event that JustFab hosted over the weekend. I've been on the look out for a full midi skirt, and this one was a great fit. They're so flattering and feminine. Black of course goes with anything, but with the weather warming up I'd love to add some bright full skirts to my closet and maybe even some floral printed ones if I wanna get a little crazy. The sweater crop top is one of my favorite scores from the Peter Pilotto X Target collection, and it's perfect to pair with a high-waisted skirt so you're only showing a sliver of skin. #keepinitclassy How do you style crop tops so it stays classy, not trashy?

Friday Favs

Mar 14, 2014

Happy Friday everyone! Here are a few lovely little things that are making me smile this week...

An adorable V-day themed gift box from Tieks. I've since been enjoying all the goodies inside, and kept the box for using to display things on or as uber cute storage.
This insanely delicious frangipane tart from Tartine. I'm drooling just looking at it and remembering it's scrumptiousness.  
Major hair therapy going on this month. Hask's Argan oil and Kertain protein shampoos, conditioners and treatments are keeping my ends soft. And Eu Natural's healthy hair vitamins are adding some shine and strength to my hair as I grow it out a little bit longer (here's a discount code for 15% off, if you're interested! EUN15OFF). 
I know I already shared this Insta shot in my February Instagram Diary post, but I'm loving OPI's Brazilian collection! The colors are so vibrant and they last me 5 days without chipping! It's a mani miracle. (Colors from left to right are: Kiss Me I'm Brazilian, Live Love CarnavalRed Hot Rio)

What's making you smile as we look forward to the weekend?
