Stripes & Sequins // Favorite Things

December came and went and I never did a favorite things round-up.  Oops!  So today I thought I’d share just a few favorite things with you.  I’m only sharing a few today, but all four things are things I (literally) can’t stop talking about.  Like, I won’t shut up about them.  So here they are… now read on for why I love them so much!

The team at Mirenesse (an absolutely awesome Australian brand) sent me some of their new eyeliners to try, and I am hooked.  These are truly the holy grail of eyeliners.  Best I’ve ever tried, and I’ve tried quite a few in my 31 years.  They glide right on, all silky + smooth and stay on all day long without smudging in the tiniest.  I’m pretty sure that if I didn’t wash my face they’d make it a full 48 hours without smudging… but I”m not going to try it.

BaubleBar’s 2 year anniversary collection.  All of it.  Yes, I realize I am biased, but I would never write about anything I wasn’t full on obsessed with here.  I watched our fashion team slave away and agonize over the details, and now I understand why – the pieces are truly incredible (and even better in person.) The day it came out I immediately bought this, this, and these.  So in love with all of it.. sparkle heaven!

Rebecca Minkoff Pre-Fall.  I can’t stop ogling the collection… I love the tomboy feel that it has…  so wearable!  (Fun fact:  it was inspired by twenties & thirties work wear.)  I am obsessed with the look above…and really want to add that blazer to my wardrobe come summer to layer over my graphic tees!

I discovered these lip creams via Julia’s blog.  You probably already know this from reading her blog, but this girl is just adorable, so you automatically eat up any beauty advice she dispenses.  And these bad boys are good.  Highly pigmented, super creamy & moisturizing, and the color lasts.  (Also, they are under $10, so you don’t need to feel guilty about buying four of them.)

    The BaubleBar anniversary stuff is so great! It’s hard to choose just ONE item to order!

    love, love that RM blazer/look… totally agree it’s a fresh way to chic-up tees this summer. Excited to check out the lip creams, too.

    U read my mind! I just blogged about the lip cream!! And am always always on the hunt for an eyeliner that is rich and creamy and doesn’t end up on my temples in 45 minutes. So glad I discovered this blog !

    Oh, those NYX lippies are just about the best thing ever. I love them- I like to layer them under other reds because when the lipstick wears thin the cream will still be there. The Bauble Bar anniversary collection is pretty hot!
