OBSESSED: Black & White

I’ve always had a thing for the combo of black and white when it comes to fashion but this spring, it’s honestly just been EVERYWHERE, which is fab.  I had a black and white-themed 30th birthday party, had a mini BFF black and white birthday dinner and, now, I find myself wandering around the interwebs in search of my next black and white purchase…it’s a sickness.  Here are my latest favorites:

1. Milly Kiera Clutch: Probably the ultimate go-to clutch that will match almost anything.  I need this.

2. Tarte Cosmetics Buffy Bamboo Face Powder Brush: As you know, I’m obsessed with all things packaging when it comes to Tarte, and this b&w makeup brush is no exception.

3. Dorothy Perkins Deco Dip Dress: A b&w dress never, I repeat NEVER goes out of style and this particular dress is not only cute…but also under $60.  Seriously.

4. Rosegold Zane Woven Booties: At first glance, I had mixed feelings on the heel of these babies…but after a few minutes, I become a fan.  I love the woven chevron and would wear these with jeans AND with a bright colored dress.

5. Z Gallerie Zig Zag Frame: My apartment is already very b&w and this frame will fit nicely into the mix, and at a decent price.

OBSESSED: Tarte Journey To Natural Beauty 6-Piece Collection

I can’t express in words the joy that came to my face when I opened my mail and came across this special 6-piece collection from Tarte Cosmetics for QVC.  Like, the packaging just makes me so happy and I plan on using the bag as a summer clutch.  What does it include?  Oh, pretty much everything that you need:

  • Amazonian Butter Lipstick in “Plummy Rose”
  • Amazonian Clay 12-Hour Full Coverage Broad-Spectrum SPF 15 Foundation (I got the “fair” shade, which is perfect)
  • Lights, Camera, Flashes! Statement Mascara in “Black”
  • One Brow Architect Brow Shaper
  • 12-Hour Amazonian Clay Blush in “Fearless”
  • Airbrush Finish Bamboo Foundation Brush- OBSESSED with this.  LOOK at the fabric handle?!
  • Bag- it doubles as a really cute clutch and, even though I’m not really a pink girl, I totally love it.

Obsessed: Tarte Clean Slate 12-Hour Perfecting Primer

I’m so into primers these days and, after trying this version from Tarte Cosmetics, I’m totally obsessed. The Clean Slate 12-Hour Perfecting Primer is in the most adorable packaging (obviously I’m already sucked in) and my skin actually feels silky after I put it on.  I LOVE that feeling. And even though I don’t have particularly large pores, I do appreciate the fact that this primer really diffuses fine lines and lasts for up to 12 hours…cause really, there’s nothing worse than catching a glimpse of yourself in the mirror around 8pm and realizing that your makeup is ALL OVER your face, and not in the spots that it SHOULD be.

I never buy beauty products but I’ve heard so many things about these, that I had to try them. LOVE.

If you were an Entourage fan, you’ll appreciate this prop goodness in my friend’s guest room.

Love sick.

I found this AMAZING old bookmark and I’m bringing it back into action!
