It’s been too long since a recent beauty favorites post so sharing some of my obsessions discovered over the summer!

  • Lancome Grandiose Mascara: Ever since I helped Lancome launch this mascara a few weeks back I’ve been using it every day. It lengthens, lifts and volumizes with a patented wand intended to work with the shape of your face for easy application.
  • Hourglass Ambient Lighting Powder: This powder is like a little dose of magic. It gives you that lit-from-within type of look and I love layering it over blush and a bit of bronzer. Available in several shades, I use ‘Mood Light’ – a soft, sheer lavender pink that mimics the softest, most forgiving light and brightens the complexion. It’s the perfect highlighter.
  • Clarins Blush Creme: This blush has been a lifesaver this summer. It blends so well given its cream formulation and has a natural finish while feeling lightweight. I particularly use it over the weekends when I wear next to no makeup during the day.

outfit // kaleidoscope







Ever since Tibi released this Rococo print I loved it for its kaleidoscope like effect. When the silk tank (I swear by their silk tanks) hit Gilt, I snatched it up as soon as I saw it. Shooting this outfit on Park Avenue was such a fun experience as I A) rarely head to midtown and B) I was headed to Ted Baker to shop the store (all to myself!) for last week’s collaboration.

I’m en route back to New York from Lake Tahoe via Sacramento and Minneapolis after what was such an amazing and love-filled weekend. It made me so grateful I joined a sorority in college (Alpha Phi!) and made friends with some incredible girls who I’m lucky to call my friends so many years later.

Outfit: Tibi Rococo tank, J.Crew denim jacket + skirt, Joie heels, Sophie Hulme bag, Ray Ban sunglasses, BaubleBar necklace, Ice Watch
