Sun. Sky. Sand. Waves. Beach!

Bonjour mes amis! Beach season is here and I'm feeling inspired by all the summery elements of my favorite past time: Beach Bummin'! My eye of the day isn't something that I'd actually wear to the beach (I much prefer no makeup and lots of SPF), but it is an artistic embodiment of all the goodies one can find there: the luminous sun, the warm sand, the refreshing waves, and the clear blue sky. In fact, this bright fun look can be worn to a beach bonfire party and/or would be perfect for any other summer night out!

Mixed Patterns NailArt

Salut mes amis! There is nothing more fun and fresh for this season's nails than mixed patterns in complementary colors. A year ago, I would've thought of this trend as something outrageous and unwearable; however, today, I'm more than eager to experiment and play around with it! For my nail art du jour, I went with intricate patterns and prints, but kept it neutral in color to maximize its ready-to-wear factor.

Salut mes amis! It's a Monday at the work place, but it's a Friday Party on my nails!!! This nail design is not for the faint of heart -- it is loud, bright and attention grabbing. In the past few days of wearing this creative manicure, I've received nearly a hundred comments from women, men, children & strangers on the subway asking to see my nails. I'd say this nail art is definitely a conversation starter!! Like the idea?

A Chloro-Pheeling :)

Hey girls & boys!! Today's makeup look is inspired by two things: the first being my pet plant ("who" is in desperate need of a name & suggestions are welcome :) and the second being the wondrous, joyful colors of Lime Crime* Makeup. As most of my regular readers know, I hardly ever wear green eyeshadow, but I love to experiment and try everything -- even if it's uncomfortable or quirky -- so today is that day!

Light, Bright & Lovely

Mornin' y'all! Today's quick post is an up-close featuring a contrasting duo of soft baby pink eyeshadow and sharp shimmery jet black cat-eyeliner. I love this modern take on the classic pin-up eye, and I wear it almost daily. A lot of people ask about my favorite type of makeup for everyday, so I thought I'd share one of my personal classics.

Hit Lunchtime Show LOOSE WOMEN*

The Battle Of The Sexes

From tolerating colds to multi-tasking, remembering important dates such as wedding anniversaries and Mother’s Day to shopping for shoes – there are certain things that many feel women do better than men.

And whilst this may be an unfair representation of men – with conjectures which work in the reverse likely to get you labelled as chauvinistic and anti-feminist – there are still those who hold these opinions.

With modern women consistently competing with men for the top jobs at work, in leadership, and in problem solving, the differences between our two sexes could hold greater sway than ever before. But what things might you be surprised to hear that women can excel in?
