From your dad back home in Ohio to the latest it-girl in France.
… everyone wears Levi’s.
Except for me, apparently.
It makes sense — I’m not your dad and, as hard as I may try, I’m not a French it-girl.
Note: I’m totally not a beauty expert, so these are my uneducated thoughts about my favourite pieces of makeup… like, I can’t tell you what the exact effect of vitamin E (or whatever) will add to a lip liner, but I can tell you if I dig the product.
What is it?
Lisa Eldridge True Velvet Lip Colour
What colour is it?
A muted, earthy, brick red inspired by the 1930’s red lipsticks.”
i.e., It’s a deep red that slightly looks like it has a bit of brown to it when applied directly and opaquely.
K Jacques have been making sandals in St. Tropez since the 1930s.
They were handmade by artisans then… and 90 years later, they still are.
Basically, K. Jacques have been the sandals that the well-heeled French have been wearing for close to a decade.
K. Jacques has worked with Givenchy, Isabel Marant, and a particularly interesting collaboration with Opening Ceremony.
Les gens at K Jacques St Tropez sure know how to keep up with the times.
This might be gross, but…
You know how in college when you’d pre-game and then you’d really really really needed to go pee, but people would joke and be like, “don’t break the seal?”
I graduated like seven years ago though, so bear with me — this isn’t about binge drinking on a budget…
This is about how I accidentally broke the seal on expensive bathing suits when I bought my Eres bikini.
While I’ll moan, complain, and send around a “million strong against Instagram’s algorithm” petition.
… and I’ll think I’m totally justified in my frustration with Instagram’s algorithm and their
stupid “you need 10K followers to have links in your story” rule, it’s because of them that I found Natalie Martin.
Sure, Rihanna’s been photographed in Natalie Martin dresses and she’s done a collaboration with Anthropologie before (Natalie Martin, not Rihanna lol).
… but, like, I’ve been literally living
under on a rock for the last 4 years.
Eres swimwear is the kind of swimwear that
you I have always dreamed of.
I mean, Eres was the first brand dedicated to swimwear.
… and they’re owned by Chanel — so you know their bathing suits have to be pretty luxurious, dreamy, and extra special.
After all my “I wanna be a dream French cool girl” nonsense, it makes sense that Eres would be my ideal swimwear brand.
… but, my Eres obsession has nothing to do with that whole “dream French cool girl” stuff.
At some point, every millennial was obsessed with Mary-Kate and Ashley.
… like to the point where I don’t need to be specific with using a last name.
I could have said “Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen” — but like, you knew who I was talking about.
My top 3 favourite Mary-Kate & Ashley direct-to-video movies?
1- Our Lips Are Sealed
2- Passport to Paris
3- Winning London
I don’t remember how or when I heard about Lunya.
… it was probably during one of my (many) silk slip dress searches.
Lunya’s thing is high quality pajamas — like high quality nice pajamas.
Every night I just throw on a beat up blink-182 t-shirt to sleep — hoping for dreams where I’m front row at the rock show.
Basically, I’m not really one for nice pajamas… however, silk is one of my favourite fabrics.
