This lovely blog took a backseat to the birth and care of my little guy, an elfin child who inherited mama's plump lips. I think it's only fair that I devoted myself to his baby needs and put my beauty/gal about town/ fun times blog on hold for a bit.... Continue reading

Last year I started this blog as a way to express my love of all things asesthetically pleasing and to highlight some new and interesting places around Orlando. It's been a work in progress and sometime last summer I found out that I had another work in progress on the... Continue reading

Adjectives Market in Altamonte Springs is a vintage marketplace filled with vintage items, antiques, art, and hand made gems of every variety. With over 85 dealers it’s hard not to find something you really want and probably don't need. You can browse for hours and still find another new must... Continue reading

The Olympics have come and gone. The Royal Wedding was almost a year and a half ago. Where can a girl get her English fix these days without plopping in front of the DVD player for some Downton Abbey? Well, in Mount Dora of course! The other day my friend... Continue reading

Every once in a while you just gotta treat yourself. You know, get all of that workday stress out of your system, wash that man out of your hair, silence the nagging chatter in your head. Or you can just indulge in opulance because...you deserve it! I deserve it! Your... Continue reading

Every once in a while a girl needs a little pick me up. A little something extra to help put that spring in her step and widen her smile. My little something extra comes in a shiny silver tube and tastes like the sweet nectar of the makeup gods. This... Continue reading

Have you ever felt like you were born in the wrong time? I feel that way all of the time. If I had the choice I'd probably choose the 1920's or the 1960's as my era. I see a lot of parrallels in those two time periods in both changes... Continue reading

People Magazine's 2012 Most Beautiful issue is out and the photo everyone is talking about isn't Beyonce's cover image, it's Zooey Deschanel going au natural. We are so used to seeing her signature big bangs, rosy cheeks, and long lashes—it's hard to believe she doesn't get out of bed with... Continue reading

Today I completed a dreaded task. I stopped putting off the inevitable and went and got a new passport photo so I could renew my passport. You would think the raised renewal fee would be the most off putting part of this process (the fee went from $75 to $110),... Continue reading

What’s left for Marc Jacobs to conquer? He has our hearts, our closets, his name on our handbags—what’s left? Our faces? Yep, that’s right, Mr. Jacobs is joining the ranks of Yves Saint Laurent, Tom Ford, and Michael Kors, and creating a new makeup line. This is great news for... Continue reading

Have you read "the book?" It's the book everyone is talking about (this week). It's recently made the rounds on the morning talk shows, which is where I first heard about it. I downloaded a sample on my ipad and 20+ pages later I was purchasing said book. I couldn't... Continue reading

I don't know diddly squat about Hunger Games. I didn't read the books, therefore, I haven't been anxiously awaiting this movie with baited breath. If film industry reports are true, then there is no escaping this phenomenon, soon enough we will all be fluent in Hunger Games and will know... Continue reading

Fabulous news in the Makeup/Beauty world today! Nars has just announced that a Limited Edition Collection inspired by Andy Warhol is in the works and will be in stores in North America by October 2012. This is exciting news for Warhol and Nars fans. It's a seemless collaboration and I... Continue reading

Spring is in the air, you can feel it all around, spring is in the air, everywhere you look around. As we spring forward (gosh I'm tired, but I love leaving work in daylight) and shed our winter wardrobes and fall color palettes, there is one simple thing we can... Continue reading

I kept seeing Olympia Le-Tan Book Clutches on the red carpet and wondered where they came from and who designed them. It wasn’t hard to track down the designer of these unique accessories. Le-Tan makes a limited amount of each handmade “book” in her company’s Paris studio. They are available... Continue reading

My favorite Oscar look this year was Michelle Williams in Louis Vuitton. It wasn’t just the dress—although the dress is feminine and sweet—it was also the face. She came on the red carpet like a breath of fresh air in a sea of others monotone white, black, and red gowns.... Continue reading

What is it with me and the French lately? Maybe the Universe is trying to tell me something. I think I'm supposed to go to France this year. Meanwhile, locally, I'm enjoying finding little treasures right here in Orlando. French Nest is an antique store with a shabby chic/French provincial... Continue reading

Bye, bye smokey eye. Well not really. Maybe it’s more like a see you later situation. The smokey eye and nude lips combination aren’t going out of style, on the contrary, that look is everywhere. I don’t know if it’s reached the height of popularity, but it just doesn’t feel... Continue reading

I read somewhere once that Nars founder, François Nars, liked to give products unique names with specific meanings and that some products are named for places where he's found inspiration or that recall a certain memory or feeling. I'd love to be in a room with the creatives who brianstorm... Continue reading

Bonjour! Bonsoir! Bon Appétit! When I was in Paris, I’m sure I murdered the language, but I made an attempt everywhere I went to show that I was at least trying. I found that when I tried, the people I encountered were much more amiable and willing to help me... Continue reading

The Iris Apfel Limited Edition collection from MAC has four amazing lipsticks that are perfect for those wanting to try out the bright, bold lip trend.

Orlando is a big town that at times can feel like a small town, so it’s always exciting when you find something special that seems out of place in your one—or sometimes two horse—town. Paris Market is a charming little vintage boutique on Fairbanks Ave. in Winter Park. Although it's... Continue reading

This is my first blog post! Hip hip hurray! This blog will be a journey into the deep, dark, and sweetly perfumed recesses of my mind. I'm ready to go out and look for interesting things to blog about. I like to read blogs, and I like to search for... Continue reading
