Today I’ve teamed up with P&G to share a few little updates I’m making for Fall. Despite living in Gramercy, I think of myself as a little bit downtown when it comes to my style. I love adding special touches here + there to have a little fun and add a little edge. The biggest change was probably when I dyed my hair strawberry blonde this Fall. It’s a glaze so it is slowly washing out… I’m already thinking about what I want to do next.
The first, most important thing I have been doing is taking better care of my skin. Even when I don’t want to, I wash my face and apply night cream before bed. In the morning, I use this moisturizer from Olay – I love that it takes care of all of my main objectives (hydration, anti-aging, SPF) in one formula) so that I don’t have to worry about much else (besides dark circle cover up) once I put it on.
At home, I’ve been adding softer textures to my apartment. I ordered this Greek Flokati Rug during Rugs USA’s Labor Day sale and love it so much. It was a great price and is so incredibly soft. I have it in my dressing area (outside my bathroom + closet) and love the way it feels between my toes… so soft + cushy.
I’m a big fan of experimenting with lipstick as it can completely change your look. I discovered Covergirl’s LipPerfection (TM) at the Style Coalition Lounge during fashion week and am newly obsessed. It is just as nice as any of my fancier lipsticks and keeps my lips hydrated and smooth, while delivering a hefty dose of color. “Sultry” pictured above is the perfect mauve and makes for a great daytime look, and “Entwined” is a gorgeous deep purple that I love for going out at night. (I am wearing Entwined here!)
New leather goods always inspire me to actually put my cash + receipts away and not make such a mess of my purse. This little monogrammed guy was a gift from Gigi… love that it also holds my phone if I want to ditch my bigger bag at the office to go out after work.
I always say that a pretty girl is a productive girl, and the same goes for your desk accessories. Pretty little lucite accessories like this stapler + tape dispenser make Sunday afternoons extra productive.
Lastly, I always keep a candle going at home. Right now I’m loving this coconut/mango one. It’s not the most Fall scent, but it makes me feel like I am on vacation.

I love seeing pictures of your new place! I am trying to take better care of myself too. I like the glass bottles and lucite desk accessories. I have been wanting to try some new night creams, and I like that lipstick. Love your blog!
thanks Cathleen!! There really is nothing like a little pampering and treating yourself well to feel a little bit better… 🙂
SUCH a treat to see your Design Darling goodies on the blog today! Totally made my day. xoxo
oh yay! I love your shop. 🙂
This is amazing. I love how your Valentino’s peek. What do you use for dark circles?
Such fun updates! I LOVE that stapler. I did a little DIY project to make my stapler more fun – I painted it gold. Ah, the little things in life… 🙂
Love the office supplies and can I say, I have actually been holding onto that same Olay lotion for a while, but scared to try it. Think I might take it out of my spare case now for a whirl 🙂
A candle burning is a must for making an apartment feel like a home! Happy to see you settling into your new place!
The lucite office accessories are adorable! And love the idea of that candle scent… I’ve never seen that!
Omg, I love your “a pretty girl is a productive girl” saying. It is so true! When I’m looking good and the space around me is as well, I get so much more done.
haha, thanks! it is so true!!!
So jealous of your kitty flats!
