Currently Obsessed... Cognac Tote

We just got this amazing leather tote in at work as part of the new Point Collection! Trying so hard not to buy it but it's perfection in cognac colored leather, don't you think?

All-Star Moisturizers

Lately there have been two all-star moisturizers that haven't left my makeup bag. They've stepped up to the challenge of hydrating my dry winter skin and protect from the cold and wind and throughout countless snow storms. I'll be restocking these each winter!


For Lips: Clarins Instant Light Lip Comfort Oil is one of my favorite products from the Clarins Spring collection. It's a gel like oil that nourishes lips and smells yummy! It's light and glossy without being sticky and has an extra wide, super soft applicator that mimics your finger. ($23, available in Honey & Raspberry)

For Hands & Body: Dermworx MoistureWORX is a fragrance free, hypoallergenic white petroleum based spray that is ultra-hydrating without being too greasy. I keep a mini bottle in my makeup bag; just shake and spray and work into the skin like a normal moisturizer. It's been a godsend for itchy, dry legs. ($37)


What favorites are lurking in your makeup bag this winter?

Back to Basics: Dark Denim

While the new year inspires a fresh start for many, this year has been all about getting "Back to Basics" for me. From simplifying my beauty routine to buying more practical flats instead of sky high heels, it's what inspired this series. And despite the negative connotation the word "basic" has taken on, I'm hoping to inspire you to simplify things in your life. To splurge on those pieces you reach for day after day, and to try to find your way back to a time before arm parties and tulle skirts...

There are few things as important as a great pair of jeans. I'm fortunate to work for an amazing denim retailer, so my Lucky Brand jeans are my current favorites, although I do love my J Brands and Rag & Bone's. I've been wearing the heck out out of my Brooke Skinny jeans from Lucky. They are dark, clean, and fit like a dream. I especially love that they are a mid-rise jean and I totally don't care if that makes me seem old; I just can't stand to be showing off my undies!  

A few tips to make your denim last longer: wash as infrequently as possible, don't put them in the dryer, and don't pull them up by the belt loops!

Where are your favorite jeans from?

Weekend Wire!

Well, hello there Friday! It's been a pretty good week thus far with blog shoots in the Common and dinner at Kennedy's on the Square with blog friends. Next week should be a busy one with a couple of events and appointments scattered through the week so I'm just enjoying my days off and trying to squeeze in workouts where I can. I've been craving a spin class like nothing else. I'm feeding my craving this morning with class at The Handle Bar, so have a fab weekend my friends!
