I’ve already dropped about $300 at the Nordstrom Anniversary sale, but that doesn’t necessarily mean I’m done shopping… There’s been years where I’ve put off purchases thinking “oh they’ll be back on sale before I know it” but let me tell you it will take FOR-EV-ER for these pieces to be on sale again and even if they do they won’t be your size or the color you want so if you see something I say take the plunge and buy now! Here’s what I’m still contemplating:
Tory Burch Adeline Boot in Almond (Sale $299.90, After Sale $498) When fall rolls around I know these would look so so beautiful and classic, but I already have nice riding boots in this color that are in good shape. There’s just something about that gold TB logo though, right!? Continue reading “Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 2017 Recommendations and Wish List”
If you have dark circles and discoloration around your eyes, you’re going to want to read this. Here’s my secret to using concealer to cover up dark under eyes:
- Depuff: I used my Tarte Pack Your Bags 911 Undereye Rescue Patches ($22 for 4 pairs) that had been in the refrigerator to help reduce any puffiness. You can also go old school and use cold spoons! One of my new faves Mallory Ervin recommended these Tarte patches. You may also remember that Lady Sonja Morgan from Real Housewives of New York dips her whole face in an ice bath to help with puffiness!

I’m a HUGE audiobook fan I’m pretty sure I’d go insane driving in LA traffic if I didn’t have audiobooks and podcasts to listen to. I’ve been an Audible member since 7/8/2011! I pay about $15 a month and get 1 credit for a free audiobook monthly. The Audible app is great and super easy to use as well and keeps your bookmark in the place you left off even if you switch between devices. My favorite part about the Audible app is being able to adjust the speed of the speaker which I usually put at 1.25x. You can sign-up for Audible and get a 30 day free trial with 2 free audiobooks:

I went to San Francisco for a conference and a long weekend a few weeks ago and I forgot how much I love that city! The food, the shopping, the parks, the homes, the history, it’s amazing! I wanted to give you a run down of some of my recommendations.
- Always dress in layers. San Francisco is always colder than people think it will be.
- It’s so humid say goodbye to having any good hair days here.

Adderall and Compliments by Annabelle DeSisto
Hi everyone- my gorgeous BFF Annabelle has a new podcast out with the same name as her blog Adderall and Compliments so I wanted to make sure everyone downloads it! She is hilarious and talks all about Bravo shows and pop culture as well as the celebrities she’s dated and even some fun stories about me 😉 I also was screaming laughing when our friend Meagan talked about how she signed her own year book pretending to be all the popular boys at her school including using different handwriting and purposely spelling her name wrong… This podcast will for sure make your commute so much better, promise! Subscribe ASAP.
Next up is a podcast Annabelle told me about and I subsequently became obsessed with it, Bitch Sesh! Casey Wilson and Danielle Schneider breakdown all the housewives franchises weekly in this hilarious podcast. If you are Bravo obsessed you will love this podcast. They even wore jumpsuits by Sonia and the Countess, they are that dedicated to all things Real Housewives!
Juicy Scoop with Heather McDonald
I LOVE both of Heather McDonald’s books (and highly recommend listening to the audiobook version) so of course I was excited when she came out with her own podcast Juicy Scoop with Heather McDonald Heather is obsessed with celebrity gossip and all things Bravo (are you seeing a theme here??) and she also had an amazing series called Serial Sister and this whole ongoing saga about a paddle boarder dad that dated all these ladies at the same time and stole their money, it’s always something juicy every week on this podcast and I highly recommend you check it out.
Other podcasts I listen to and recommend include The Bitch Bible, Hidden Brain, Mystery Show, and StartUp. Check out my other post to see my favorite dating and relationship Podcasts. What’s your favorite podcast?
Hello everyone! Summer is here and that can be rough for us with combination and oily skin so I thought I’d share the products I’ve been using to try to prevent my face from melting off. This is a very full face of makeup, but “natural” enough to wear to work.
My Summer Makeup Routine
Apply moisturizer, SPF, and primer. I’ve been trying different combinations of these 3 and haven’t yet found my perfect prep and prime products yet. I will say I was very disappointed with Becca’s Ever Matte Poreless Priming Perfector which is also super expensive so I definitely would not recommend that. The next one I will be purchasing and trying soon is the Giorgio Armani Maestro UV Skin Defense Primer SPF 50 ($64, but hey, cheaper than Botox!).
Apply foundation and concealer. Lately I’ve been using Continue reading “Summer Makeup Routine for Oily and Combination Skin”
