Things I Want Right Now…

Most of the time, it is great to stay on topic. But sometimes there is an overwhelming desire to toss out all the planning you’ve done for your blog and instead launch into a litany of things your lusting after, those unreasonably expensive or irrational purchases that you would love to make but choose not to for the sake of greater goals (like being debt free!). So, instead of actually making a mega-haul, I’ll pine away for all the baubles and trinkets from the comfort of my living room, yoga pants in action and the Netflix blaring while I try to lick the Rocky Road off of my shirt.

Think Taylor Swift and the red pout she’s rocked on the red carpet for years. The color just makes sense on her because it is her; she doesn’t quite look herself without it. Lipstick can do the same for you, and help you simplify at the same time. My suggestion is to find a bold color you love and wear it every day. Choose a bold color for two reasons; 1) Why not? 2) A bold color can be layered to alter your look from season to season; for example, Taylor could rock the red in the winter time, layer it over a sheer gloss in the spring to lighten things up, mix it with a shimmery bronze in the summer, and blend it with a rich plum in the fall for a moody autumn look. One lipstick worn year round = less makeup you…
