Winter is Coming!

Thanksgiving is over already (I can’t believe it!), everyone is putting up the holiday decorations, and it’s definitely getting colder outside. While I didn’t do any post-Thanksgiving shopping this year (but have you seen the J.Crew sale?!), there are a few things on my (winter is coming) wish list!

Creating a Concealer Wardrobe

As much as I love makeup, I like to keep my every day look pretty simple. Usually, this meant relying on a full coverage foundation, bronzer, and little else. These days, I’m trying to take better care of my skin (love this post on The Everygirl) and be more deliberate about my makeup application – using little or no foundation but utilizing multiple concealers and a simple blush/loose powder to finish. I end up looking “done” and polished but more natural. Why multiple concealers? They serve different purposes!

Fall Things

It’s still pretty warm in DC these days but I can’t help but get excited for fall! It’s my favorite time of year (I don’t even mind the back-to-school part so much). Leopard, camel, layers, burgundy… lovely.

Madewell + Cambridge Satchel

Earlier this week, I stopped by the Madewell store in Georgetown to check out their new event space called Our 2nd Story. It was also the launch of Madewell’s collaboration with The Cambridge Satchel Company – a fantastic company that makes seriously great bags – and they celebrated with on the spot live monogramming! The new space will be used for rotating shop-in-shops throughout the year to come, as well as events hosted by bloggers, influencers and local creatives – so cool, right?

Summer Things

Since my last post, I finished finals (and the spring semester!), took the absolute best trip to Napa and San Francisco (see photos on Instagram!), and started summer class (bummer). I can’t believe it’s already June! But I couldn’t be more excited. I love summer, and this one, in particular, was/is needed. So to celebrate, here are a few of my favorite summer things right now!
