Happy Monday, ladies. My brain is buzzing with many things this week. I just got home from a very quick (48 hr) trip to Palm Springs. I arrived wearing colors and clothes that fit where I live, but after an hour in the desert, I began to feel like I was wearing boring clothes:)
It wasn’t hot, but the vibe seemed to call for brighter colors and more relaxed shapes. Removing my structured blazer helped, but not enough. I wanted to be wearing flowing, bright cheery fabrics but the one caftan I brought never saw the light of day during this trip because it’s a style stretch for me.
To fly home, I pulled out all the stops and wore my blue sweater! Still not vibrant but more colorful than neutrals.
And why was I in Palm Springs? A color analysis that blew my mind. I shouldn’t be surprised at the results, but I am. I have much to absorb about what I learned and I’ll share more in the near future. I expect this will be my last color consultation for some time because I finally found one that convinced me of my true season.
I’ve been meaning to read A Course In Miracles for many years and have been intimidated by its length. My friend kept insisting I needed to get into it so when I found great reviews for this abbreviated audible book, I decided it was a great starting point. Have you read A Course In Miracles?
This Wow hair shine spray is simply amazing! It’s not the least bit oily or greasy and does not change the texture of my hair. It’s the last thing I spray on my hair in the morning and gives it a sparkling shine. It’s one of my best finds in a long time.
pink and pinker
I’ve been slowly building my collection of Bare Minerals lipstick over the last few months and loving them. They’re hydrating without being goopy and stay on very, very well… which matters under a mask. I’ve been focusing on the pinks but plan to dive into other shades as well. My latest is the Creativity which is so pretty on.
What’s in a name?
I think of myself as modern and as progressive as the next woman. For some reason, the name of some beauty products disturbs me. I was shopping for eyeshadow on Saturday and found one I liked by Urban Decay. I assumed I wouldn’t buy it because most of their product names are edgy. I was thrilled to discover it is simply called “Mushroom” so I bought it and love it. It looks very metallic but goes on fairly matte, go figure.
They make a great mascara called Perversion which I stopped using because that name bothered me. I know those types of names are part of their branding message, but I’m determined to bring beauty and elegance into my life this year, and they turn me off. Am I alone here?
Thanks for reading ladies and remember to wear what makes you feel confident.
