Blog Move

There are two primary reasons I’ve decided to move my blog again (not that the move from Kathryn Rose should even count): 
  1. My mom pointed out an oversight in my old url ( which has been bugging me the past couple weeks.
  2. Who the hell am I to have a blog that’s just my name?  I’m not that much of a narcissist.
If you enjoy my ramblings about makeup and life, I hope you'll subscribe to my new blog Lipstick & a Latte.

Casually Adorable Date Makeup

This look could also work as casually adorable school makeup or casually adorable daytime sporting event makeup, but I'm wearing it on a lunch date.  (Is sushi with an old friend a date?--By "old friend" I mean this boy I've had a crush on since I was like 16.)  The look is quick and perfectly natural looking, as boys tend to hate when they can see you're wearing tons of makeup.
What I'm wearing:
  1. Origins A Perfect World SPF 15 Age Defense Tinted Moisturizer with White Tea (01 Light)
  2. Origins Silk Screen Refining Powder Makeup (Oatmeal 16)
  3. Milani Intermix Baked Eyeshadow
  4. Prestige My Blackest Lashes Mascara
  5. Palladio Tinted Lip Balm
  6. Milani Baked Blush in Dolce Pink

Lippy update: I slapped on NYC Sheer Red before grabbing Stonewood happy hour with my dad.  A dark lip is a surefire way to turn simple daytime makeup nighttime appropriate in like a minute.

Sorry my room is even more insanely messy than usual.
What do you think about this look?  How would you do your makeup for a lunchtime pseudo date?


P.S. Is my left eyebrow looking a touch too thin?

First Impression Friday: St. Ives Oatmeal & Shea Butter Moisturizing Body Wash

Standard shower gels can be too harsh on winter skin.  With this in mind, I was on the hunt for a moisturizing body wash and picked up this little bottle in the sample area on my most recent CVS trip.  Not only does this body wash smell incredible, but it contains good stuff like shea butter and oats which are proven to relieve itch and hydrate dry skin.  I recommend this product to anyone suffering from dry skin.

Have you tried this product?  Do you experience dry skin in the winter?  What body wash do you use?
