Celebrity Fashion Lust – Golden Globes 2015 Edition

I know, I know, that post never materialized, but you didn’t think I’d leave you hanging on the dresses?! Here’s my roundup of the celebrity fashion from the Golden Globes 2015.

From talking with people on Facebook last night, I know that some of my faves were not that popular, but, hey, this is my blog. 😉

Let’s start with the good:

Celebrity Fashion Golden Globes 2015 To be honest, I didn’t even know who Julia Goldani Telles was, but I just knew that I ADORED the color of her dress. I felt like, overall, there was a lot of blahness on the red carpet, and this Carmen Marc Valvo grabbed me immediately. (more…)

Music Monday #35 – “Fading Like a Flower” by Roxette

Happy New Year, everyone! I should have some new content for you by the end of the week, but in the meantime, I thought I’d share this oldie but goodie, since it’s been on rotation a lot for me in the last few days. (IT MAKES ME FEEL SO OLD TO CALL THIS AN ‘OLDIE,’ but how many of you actually know who Roxette is/was?!)

Anyone have any resolutions? 🙂

Wishlisht Wednesday #36 – Elina Gleizer Torn Silver Ring

I know this is the time of year that people usually post about gifts to get other people. But if you haven’t been able to tell, my family doesn’t celebrate Christmas. And we don’t do presents. Which leaves me free to keep cultivating my own wishlist. 😉

High up on that list is this gorgeous Elina Gleizer Torn Silver Ring.

Elina Gleizer torn silver ring

Okay, so it looks kind of like a ring I already have. But it also kind of doesn’t. It’s exquisite. And unusual. And classy. And rough around the edges. Everything I aspire to be, come to think of it.

(It also comes in a version with black diamonds that I like even better…but I don’t like the price better. Still. Thought I would point that out for all of you.)

If I close my eyes and squint, I can see it on my finger! (Or is that my ring that looks kind of like it??)

What are you guys wishing for this holiday season?

Wishlist Wednesday #35 – Latest beauty lusts

Affilier

I do have some new-ish purchases I’m getting ready to feature here, but the weather is not cooperating for photography. So I thought I may as well share my latest beauty lusts. We’ll see if they feature on here in the future, eh? 🙂

Yves Saint Laurent Couture Palette in Couleurs 10

This may look like an odd choice, but do you see that muddy color up in the upper left hand corner? It’s muddy because it’s blue with golden shimmer and it’s BEE-YOO-TEE-FUL. You can see it better here and swatches here. I think my desire for the blue may stem from this photo of Valentine, though I’d be better off with a matte blue to recreate that look, and I’d probably pay less for it. At $60, I feel like YSL may have outpriced themselves with these new palettes. (Too bad, because it’s so prettttttty!!) (more…)

My Favorite Places: Bite Beauty Lip Lab, NY

Affilier Acheté

bite beauty lip lab I don’t have any travel plans on the horizon, to show you my favorite places abroad, so it’s the perfect time to focus on my favorite New York places. And I realized it had been a nice, long time since I had visited the Bite Beauty Lip Lab—not since they had redone and reopened the store. So when an out-of-town visitor wanted to go have her own custom color made, it was the perfect excuse for my…err…fourth visit there.

Bite Beauty Lip Lab I figure the quantity and quality of visits have definitely designated the Bite Beauty Lip Lab as one of my favorite places, so I made sure to bring my camera along to show you all how the renovations turned out.

L-R Chanel Incandescente, By Terry Frenetic Vermillion, MAC Lady Danger, MAC Mangrove

Today, I’m starting what I hope will be a new series on here, Comparatively Speaking. One of the things I find most valuable when buying new beauty products are swatches and color comparisons. Often, I can’t find comparisons of the specific products I’m looking for. Well, now, if you think like me and want to shop like me, it’s your lucky day, because I’m starting my own, and I’m starting with orange red lipsticks.

Celebrity Fashion Lust #12 – Emma Stone in Valentino

Speaking of Celebrity Fashion Lust

I saw part of Emma Stone’s Good Morning America interview wearing this, and kind of died a little inside. It’s perfection. And she has the high-heeled version of the shoes I want. Just in a different color. I want Valentino to out fit me in my life, too!

Wishlist Wednesday #34 – Polka Dot Jett booties by Modern Vice

Yes, more shoes. I guess there’s something in the air?

I still have not gotten the regular yellow Jett shoes, nor the Joie heels. I’ll probably never get the Chloé Susanna boots, but I’m working towards the Valentino Rockstuds (!!). However, in the meantime, I totally have an inappropriate crush on Modern Vice’s Polka Dot Jett booties.

Music Monday #34 – “My Silver Lining” by First Aid Kit

One of my favorite bands, First Aid Kit, has just released the video for the first single from their new album. The song is called “My Silver Lining,” and it hasn’t quite grabbed me yet. It’s not bad; not at all. It just hasn’t grown on me yet. But they’re playing here on my birthday, so hopefully hearing it live will help!

What do you think?
