butter London Lippy Gloss

Just  a quick beauty note today. I have been meaning to share with you guys my newest lip gloss fav. I’m loving the Lippy by butter London. They are most noted for their amazing nail lacquers but their lip gloss is so smooth and creamy. It feels really soothing on  the lips and is not too sticky. My favorite is Toff. It’s a great nude pink for just about any complexion.

Definitely check these out. I get mine from Ulta. If you’re already using their nail polishes then you can match your nails to your lips because some of the colors are available in both!

Shoe Review: It’s a Reva Party!

The Tory Burch Reva flat is probably the most popular ballet flat on the planet.  There’s just something magnetic about the simple design and the unmistakable logo medallion.  I remember when I was thinking about buying a pair, several people had complained about how uncomfortable they were because of the gathered, elastic detail on the heel.  One friend said she had only worn them twice but didn’t want to consign them because she had paid so much for them. So, they just sat in her closet. Such a shame.  I decided to go to Nordstrom shoe department because they always have excellent customer service and they didn’t let me down.  When I asked to try on a pair of the flats, the salesman immediately said “You need to size up at least a half size with these shoes”. Problem solved! I’ve been wearing my Reva’s pain free since then.  The leather ones I only had to go up half a size, but I went up a whole size for my glitter pair.

If you don’t know Sophia Webster……then get FAMILIAR!!!!  This Brit designer worked as a design assistant to famed shoe designer, Nicholas Kirkwood, before debuting her own collection in S/S 2013.  I have fallen head-over-heels for her whimsical, fantasy-like shoes.  Take a look at these beautiful specimens and get swept away into the magical world of Sophia Webster.

What I Wore: My First Lady Look

Every once and a while I feel like dressing like a classic lady. This is an outfit I wore to church several months ago.  The mix of mod and classic style to this Milly dress always gives me a Jackie O vibe.  Add a classic cardigan over the shoulders and a pair of conservative pumps and you have an instant first lady look.

Fysiko Eyelash Growth Serum Update

I’m halfway through my experiment with Fysiko eyelash growth serum. It’s easy to use and I haven’t had any irritation. I think they’re growing a little bit. What do you think?

Shoe Review: Talbots High-Back Pumps

These have to be the most architectural pair of shoes I own.  I purchased these from Talbots years ago because I was drawn to the dramatic high-back detail.  The color was also a nice neutral slate color and the buckle added just a little something extra.  Unfortunately, even with the platform sole, these shoes are not the most comfortable.  They are definitely just a good date night shoe.
