Essie “Good As Gold” and Elizabeth and James Bird Claw Ring: This color has been my STAPLE nail color for the last few months, I’m obsessed. I love the way it’s really more of a subtle gold and looks great with any other metallics, including this amazing sterling silver claw ring, designed by MK and Ash themselves.
Sole Society Neve Platform Sandal: I love these heels. Love. Black and camel is totally going to be my fall staple color combination and they’re comfortable, to boot.
Forever21 Geo Cutout Necklace: I’m always on the lookout for fun statement necklaces and this faux diamond version is super cute but not blingy in that tacky way.
Tickets to No Doubt and Alanis Morissette: Go figure that two of my favorite middle school bands both release an album around the same time AND go on tour. I HAD to get tickets to No Doubt and Alanis when they’re in LA. It was a total necessity.
Forever21 Rhinestone Speckles Ring Set: I grabbed these up while shopping on the website and can’t wait to wear them. $6.00 guys, SIX DOLLARS for these and, in my opinion, they look super expensive.
Jouer Cosmetics SPF 15 Lip Sheer in “St. Barths”: I’m on a constant quest for the perfect red lip and I LOVE this sheer red shade for when I want a subtle hue. On top of the SPF protection (yay!), the Jouer Lip Sheer is also really hydrating.
Urban Outfitters Scrollwork Gate Jewelry Stand: I’ve been trying to expand my jewelry collection as of late and I’m right at that point where I’m running out of room in all of my current jewelry organizers. It’s a bummer that I didn’t get another wall holder so that I can match them to the one I already have but I really do like this second generation version from Urban Outfitters. It’ll hold both earrings AND necklaces and will look cute on my wall.
Avocado toast: Avocado has been and still is all the rage and right now I can’t get enough of avocado toast. The trick? A little hot sauce sprinkled on top.
A friend and I are heading out to the desert tomorrow morning at, gasp, 9AM. There are very few things that could actually get me to wake up before 11 on a Saturday but hey, Memorial Day in Palm Springs is calling me.
J. Crew bikinitopandbottom: I love a red bikini or, really, a red anything. This one is simple and the strings make this particular style look good on almost every body type.
Dorothy Perkins Black Aztec Crossover Dress: First off, I love the pattern. Second, this dress is the perfect minimalist vacay dress (and can also serve as a cover up!) that can take you right from daytime to night.
Forever21 Classic Straw Fedora: A hat is a MUST when I’m outside in the sun for a long period of time. Not only does it keep me cool but it also prevents sun damage on my face and scalp.
Redken Color Extend Sun Solar Screen SPF 12: Blonde hair can fade and oxidize fast when in the sun for too long so it’s VIP that I apply a spray with SPF protection and, as a bonus, the SPF also protects your scalp.
Kate Somerville SPF 55 Serum Tinted Sunscreen: It’s very inaprop to wear a full face of foundation at the pool or beach but yeah, with my rosacea and hyperpigmentation, I never go full on bare faced. This face serum is the perfect solution to my problem since it not only has SPF 55 but it’s a serum (e.g. lightweight) and it’s tinted so it actually hides most of my imperfections.
I got an invite to the super cute launch of Hello Kitty for Forever21 last week and I knew there was only one person who should cover it for my blog, my friend Devon. Devon really likes (actually she really LOVES Hello Kitty) so obviously, she was really excited to attend the event at the Forever21 at the Hollywood and Highland mall. Here’s Devon’s take on the launch event:
It’s 7pm on a Thursday night and there is a line of more than 400 people on Hollywood Blvd. No, it’s not a movie premiere but the launch party of the Forever 21 for Hello Kitty Collection. The party not only gave you access to purchase items from the collection but also featured a nail art station, cupcakes and sweets, and outfits modeled by Kendall and Kylie Jenner as well as Hello Kitty herself! Of course I took advantage of the nail art station (duh!) opting for a peach color and nail art with a Hello Kitty face on one nail and a group of little jewels on another. I had to walk around with semi wet nails so it was hard for me to get my shop on, but don’t worry I was able to snag three shirts that I love! The collection itself is filled with highly wearable items that aren’t in your face Hello Kitty but very subtle hints making it easy to even wear to the office. Of course these items are flying off the racks (and the website!) so head on over to your local Forever 21 and check out the collection. – Devon Heck
