FEELING BLUE


FIRST THINGS FIRST.. I AM OBSESSED WITH THIS METALLIC SWEATER I JUST FOUND AT  FLIGHT CLOTHING BOUTIQUE. IT PROVED TO BE A VERY SUCCESSFUL SHOPPING TRIP UP TO PARK CITY  BECAUSE  I ALSO SKORED THIS LITTLE WHITE MINI!  I WASNT ORIGINALLY  INTENDING TO PAIR THE TWO TOGETHER, BUT  MY FAVORITE NECKLACE BY HOUSE OF HARLOW  TIED THE OUTFIT TOGETHER BEAUTIFULLY. 

IT WAS LOVE AT FIRST SIGHT WHEN I SAW THIS BABY COLBALT MINAUDIERE. I WAS MORE THAN HAPPY TO ADD A NEW ADDITION TO MY COLLECTION OF POUR LA VICTOIRE  HANDBAGS. ITS SO NICE TO USE ON AN EVENING OUT OR  ANYTIME YOUR JUST NOT FEELING LIKE LUGGING AROUND AN OVERSIZED TOTE. IF YOUR ANYTHING LIKE ME YOU END UP STUFFING THOSE BAGS FULL OF THINGS THAT WE JUST DONT REALLY NEED ANYWAY. THIS LITTLE MINI HAS JUST ENOUGH SPACE FOR YOUR PHONE, LIPGLOSS, CAR KEYS, AND SOME CASH!

LANA DEL REY


SO... SHE'S PERFECT... BUT REALLY. EVEN HER PERFORMANCE ON SNL COULDN'T HAVE CHANGED MY MIND . I'D LIKE TO THINK THAT I'M HER BIGGEST FAN, AND ANYONE OF MY FRIENDS WOULD PROBABLY AGREE. LUCKILY CASEY LOVES HER JUST AS MUCH AS I DO, OTHERWISE IT COULD HAVE BEEN A POTENTIAL DEAL BREAKER :)

IT WAS MORE THAN HER PROVOCATIVE LYRICS AND HAUNTINGLY PERFECT VOICE THAT EARNED HER THE 5TH BEST-SELLING ALBUM OF 2012 .
IT SEEMS SHE'S TURNED MUSIC INTO AN ART FORM USING HER UNIQUE SOUND, CINEMATOGRAPHY SKILLS, AND MELODRAMATIC PERSONA TO APPEAL TO MANY DIFFERENT AUDIENCES.

AND AS FAR AS THE LIZZY GRANT/ DEL REY CONTROVERSY GOES... SHE SAW AN OPPORTUNITY TO REINVENT HERSELF AND IT WORKED. THERE'S NOTHING FAKE ABOUT THAT - OR HER LIPS... //

GETTING LIPPY



I'VE HAD SEVERAL REQUESTS VIA INSTAGRAM TO SHARE ALL MY BEAUTY MUST HAVES! OBVIOUSLY THERE ARE TOO MANY FAVORITES TO SHARE IN JUST ONE POST, SO I'M KICKING OFF THIS SERIES OF BEAUTY POSTS WITH LIPS! 
LIVING IN UTAH, I BATTLE DRY LIPS YEAR ROUND. DRY LIPS ARE DEFINITELY NOT SEXY! I TRY AND COMBAT THIS BY USING EITHER #1 OR #5. BOTH ARE GREAT OPTION FOR LIP TREATMENTS. I ALWAYS APPLY ONE OF THESE BEFORE LAYERING ANY LIPSTICK/GLOSS OVER IT. 
99% OF THE TIME I'M ALTERNATING BETWEEN VARIOUS SHADES OF NUDE. *PLEASE NOTE: NOT ALL NUDES ARE CREATED EQUAL! FOR INSTANCE #2, M.A.C. "MYTH", IS SUPER MATTE. #9, M.A.C "HUE", HAS A BIT MORE OF A PINK UNDERTONE THAN MYTH, AS WELL AS A TINY AMOUNT OF SHEEN TO IT. I WEAR #7, M.A.C'S "FASHION WHIM" IF I WANT SOMETHING WITH HIGH GLOSS. #4 , M.A.C "TO THE FUTURE" IS A GREAT CHOICE IF YOUR TRYING TO FIND A NUDE WITH MORE OF A PEACHY TONE TO IT. "TO THE FUTURE" IS ALSO A PART OF THE PRO LONGWEAR COLLECTION, SO ITS GOING TO LAST A COUPLE HOURS LONGER THAN A GLOSS OR REGULAR LIPSTICK WOULD. 
IF I'M FEELING A BIT MORE SHOWY, I'LL OPT FOR A SHADE THAT COMBINES ORANGE AND RED TONES, SUCH AS STILA'S "TESORO". IF I'M GOING FOR MORE OF A FRESH POPPY LOOK, I TURN TO  MY ALL-TIME FAVORITE CORAL HUE, M.A.C'S "GOTTA DASH"! 
MY FAVORITE COLOR WITHIN THIS ENTIRE SET WOULD HAVE TO BE #8, "BELLISIMA"! IT STAYS ON FOR HOURS ON END, RARELY HAVING TO BE TOUCHED UP. I FEEL IT'S THE PERFECT MIXTURE OF PINK AND CORAL. BUT DONT TAKE MY WORD FOR IT, HEAD TO NORDSTROM WHERE YOU CAN TRY OUT EVERY ONE OF THESE COLORS AND SEE WHAT ONE FITS YOU BEST! 

HAPPY TUESDAY EVERYONE! -XOXO H
