summer begins

today is the last day of school for fiona.

which means my life is officially over. 

so here's another perfect beach house to dream about..

it looks friendly and fun.

we are beach bound mid-june,

which means i will probably take a stab at the 3-day anti-bloat reset.


i read this the other day and related SO hard i was nearly in tears. (srsly. this should be mandatory reading for every human on earth who is or plans on being married with kids.)


i want to eat the ass out of this. but mostly i want to try my hand at that fancy frosting flair up top. looks like chocolate brass knuckles. 


this cover up in every color for the beach. 


this hat too. like those expensive ones only much much less. 


the rms signature set - pop collection is perfect for summer. a little milk chocolate bronzer here, a little living luminizer there....and a poppy red (or rosy pink) cheek to lip. 


here's to a gorgeous holiday weekend and a drama free summer!

enjoy yourself a lady cocktail or 4. 




hi/lo summer bags

"i already have enough summer bags!!" - said no one ever. 

i've rounded up my favorites both hi and lo..



1 / 2 / 3 / 4 / 5 / 6 / 7 / 8 / 9



1 / 2 / 3 / 4 / 5 / 6 / 7 / 8 / 9 / 10

some of the "hi" bags aren't really that hi at all. some you might have to be high to buy. for example...#1 in the hi category isn't that hi at all and is SO striking. 


guys i am at home with a face the size of a catcher's mitt due to a wisdom tooth removal yesterday. the swelling is legit crazy and i feel like i've been hit by a truck. is this normal? thank you.  

uncanny resemblance

i've admired the isabel marant etoile ruffled linen mini dress for a bit cute. so flattering. but it's forever sold out and expensive for a little linen dress...


it also comes in white....


and this elusive blue version that i can't find any proof of existence other than this photo...

you can find the black one here in 3 available sizes. and here in one size. and here in one size. 

i found in white here.

zero green. and i actually think the blue is a mirage. 



this version from storets is a dead ringer and only $74.
