So, today’s edition is an amalgamation of two desires, one already expressed, and one found in the course of researching a different week’s.
It’s no secret I love to travel. And it’s no secret I have a lot of makeup, and travel pretty high maintenance. But the bane of my traveling existence is trying to fit all my makeup brushes into cosmetics bags. I have this ONE brush that is just too long and it’s a struggle every time I travel.
I’ve thought of buying a travel brush kit, but there’s invariably something missing in one that I need. Plus, I’ve invested in high-quality brushes, so why use something inferior while traveling?
So many of my knitting friends have these beautiful rolls to house their knitting needles, and I think it’s high time I invest in a roll for my makeup brushes!
Of course, I turned to Etsy, as I do for all my craft-related needs. I found a few potentials.
I know it’s very French to wear red lips with no eye makeup, just mascara, but I feel like my eye shape and features look washed out and dull without both shadow and liner. But then when I use very nude, natural colors, I feel like I need something more.
Then the other night I saw this photo of Olivia Palermo (I don’t even really know who she is or why she’s famous, but she’s gorgeous, has great style, and her
boyfriend fiance is a stone fox.)
If you know me at all, you would understand what my face looked like when I first found the Mrs. Pomeranz site.
*pause for you to go look*
Sometimes, Bloglovin’ is amazing. I found it through a blog that was recommended based on a different blog I had just followed. Convoluted? Yes. Kismet? Yes, indeed.
Here’s what the blog has to say about the company:
Mrs.Pomeranz is a small sewing studio located in London and Moscow. Specialized seamstresses create our beautiful, 1950s ’New Look Silhouette’ dresses from the highest quality English and Italian fabrics. Mrs.Pomeranz was created by Dasha Pomeranz in 2009. Dasha collected 1950s dresses for several years. Running her vintage shop ‘Good Bye London’ helped Dasha realize that a classical 50-s silhouette is the most flattering cut of all: these are dresses that can make you feel a little prim and proper… but a lot more feminine! Dasha found that the demand for 50s dresses outstripped the amount of vintage gems available. So she decided to create new dresses inspired by the 50s. With her trusted constructor she carefully reworked original patterns to fit the modern female figure: vintage cuts don’t necessarily fit today’s women, they can be too full in the chest and too thin in the waist. But Mrs.Pomeranz’s dresses fit perfectly: the cut slims the figure, the length compliments the legs. Thus the ‘New Look’ collection was born: dresses full of vintage grace but with a contemporary feel. We aim to make Mrs.Pomeranz’s dresses your favourite!
It’s all true. I couldn’t pick just one that I wanted, so I’m here to show you my top 3.
I’m so over Black Orchid by Tom Ford. My new love is Plum Japonais by Tom Ford. (Then again, I’ve always had a hard time staying true to any fragrance.) I mean, it’s still awesome. It is. But it’s very strong, and every time I wear it, my brother tells me it smells like men’s cologne.
On the other hand, the first time I wore Plum Japonais by Tom Ford, I was intoxicated. I had a sample, and for me. wearing new perfumes is always a gamble. Will it make me nauseous? It’s fair to say it did not.
