New Book

IMG_0256 copyI’m so excited to finish this book because of my trip to Paris this summer. Paris my Sweet by Amy Thomas documents her year in Paris working as a copywriter for Louis Vuitton. While in Paris she finds all the best bakeries and pastry shops. Although I’m not into sweets I really want to try all of the different chocolate and pastry shops around New York and Paris she mentions in her book. Amy Thomas also talks about living alone is such a big city while finding a way to adapt to the culture and people. Towards the middle of the book she makes friends and frequents a handful of different restaurants. She starts to feel like a true Parisian.

I believe in toner!

 

Follain

 

Cliniques toner left my skin dry, red and irritated I swore off using toner on my face. After doing some research on different products I decided to give it a chance again. I wanted to change up my skincare routine and multiple articles out there swear toner is the way to go when it comes to improving your complexion. I stopped by Follain in the South End and purchased the SW Basics toner. It’s completely organic with ingredients like raw apple cider vinegar, Witch Hazel from wild crops farm, sandalwood, and essential oils of clary sage. It didn’t burn after the first use which is a good sign that my face can handle it. I would suggest using it twice a day (morning and night) to get the best results. My face is definitely thanking me for using this.

There’s something about pleated skirts

I just purchased two skirts from Asos last night and I’m so excited for them to come in the mail. Long and short pleated skirts for the spring/summer time. I don’t know if anyone else does this but I try to buy things that match or work well with items I already have. I also purchased this blue cami dress that I want to wear when I go to Paris this summer. I’m still mad at Asos for taking away free shipping but I’m a loyal customer so I’ll deal with it. My items are below!

A day at the museum

The Museum of Fine Arts was free on Martin Luther King Day so my boyfriend and I decided to go. It’s been years since I’ve stepped inside this museum so I was excited to see everything. My favorite part of the day was the Hollywood Glamour – Fashion and Jewelry from the silver screen exhibit. Gowns and jewelry from the 1930’s and 40’s worn by famous actresses during Hollywood’s most glamorous time. There was Chanel Haute Couture, a gown designed by Travis Banton who was the chief designer at Paramount Pictures, and Edith Head an American costume designer.

Lets talk about mules

I have this attraction to mules for some reason. Maybe it’s because I found these vintage Jimmy Choo Mules for 36 dollars?? To be honest I like them because they’re so damn comfortable. I still get the classic heel style I love along with a sandal. Wearing heels in the summer can be uncomfortable so I think my new thing will be to start wearing mules with all of my cute sundresses and skirts. Of course I’ll break out my pumps on the weekends!
