Poolside in Sotogrande by Slim Aarons | on sale at Jonathan Adler!
I love a good sale! Since I’m trying not to shop for anything unnecessary (re my post on getting financially organized), I thought I’d diffuse my extreme case of “the wants” by sharing my top picks of the many sales that are going on for Memorial Day.
I am always on the hunt for the perfect nude lip color. Using satiny rosy nudes on your lips gives you a youthful glow while severe matte lip colors are aging. My most recent purchase and current fav is Clinique Chubby Stick (could they not call it “chubby?”) in Bountiful Blush. I like a swipe of natural color on my lips when I’m going to the gym or running an early morning errand so that I don’t look dead. This one has a smooth texture and rosy hue without any offensive taste and it’s light enough to look natural if you’re not wearing full makeup. Try it with a lip liner and a smoky eye for evening.
What are your favorite nude shades for lips?
This has been a crazy week down here in Dallas. Last Monday we had “thunder sleet.” What the hell is that? It was a bad week for business as Texans go into panic mode at the first sign of ice- and we’ve had 4 days this past week. It’s been beautiful but frustrating. Cabin fever has set in. Here’s what I did to stay busy.
