Tinted Lip Balm

It is safe to say that I am a product junkie – I hoard Sephora’s free samples like its my job.  While I used to be all about bold colored eye shadows, lately its been all about lips.  While bright colors are the trend, a good neutral color can be hard to come by.  This was the case for me until last night while wandering CVS I came across Burt’s Bees Tinted Lip Balm.

Yes, it was totally an impulse buy but I am so happy with it.  I got it in the Rose color which looks bright based on the packaging but it wears like a better version of my natural lip color.  When I looked at myself in the mirror I felt instantly polished.  It is also totally moisturizing and you don’t need to keep reapplying.  It comes in a lot of other colors as well.  I didn’t see it on the Burt’s Bees website but you can get your own here.

I feel like I am constantly on the quest for a pair of reasonably priced jeans that fit well.  I’ve been wanting something high-waisted but not too extreme.  The vintage rocker jeans from Madewell seem to fit the bill.

more J Crew love

I got the latest J. Crew catalog over the weekend and I think its safe to say I am officially in love with their model.

I wonder what lipstick that is?  Any ideas?

Don’t judge a book by its cover

I always noticed this dress on the Vogue patterns site but never clicked on it.  Don’t get me wrong, I always thought it was nice and classic looking but never felt it was “me.”  Well I was sure wrong.  Check out that bow on the back!
