Loving Now // Burgundy Lips

We’ve been feeling awfully cooped up these days, and in ultra hibernation mode. While sitting on the couch with fuzzy socks and binge watching Nashville is all well and good, it can easily lead to feeling a little frumpy. Sometimes we gotta just force ourselves out of the house and onto the town. What’s a good way to push you into that? An edgy new beauty look.

Burgundy lips can be surprisingly versatile as far as style goes. Throw the color on with your leather (or faux) jacket and metallic earrings for a rocker look, a deep side part and waves for your inner 40s vixen, or try out a boho-etherial vibe with some braids or a felt hat. For you ladies with those big pouts out there, please do us a favor and give this velvety look a shot, so we can live vicariously through your show-stopping ways. This lip color positively screams dinner & drinks with the girls.

Sweet Beats // June 2014

Oh, yes. It’s here – that time of year where we can bask in the sunshine (with high SPF), flip on our sunnies, and simply be. The vitamin D has certainly been making a big difference in my mood lately, and summer plans have been flying into our schedules left and right. In honor of this upcoming season (4 days!), I’ve created a little playlist with some sweet surf-rock sounds to keep you feeling cool on these long warm days.
