Four things I’m loving right now:
1. Silver and copper cherry blossom jewelry from etsy seller HapaGirls (ring, $35, earrings $30)
I’ve been wearing the ring almost every day. I usually wear large earrings, but these are perfect when I want something more subtle, and I love cherry blossom anything.
2. Bumble & bumble Color Minded UV Styling Balm ($28/4.2 oz)
If you’re wearing the red hair you should have been born with, try this to keep it in place. I tried Aveda’s color care product and wasn’t impressed, but since I started using this, my stylist always comments how well the color has held up 6-8 weeks out.
3. Make Up For Ever Rouge Artist Natural, N45 ($19)
Sephora describes this color simply as ‘red,’ but clearly it’s a fuschia red. But what’s remarkable about this lipstick is that it doesn’t dry my lips. I tried to make MAC work for years before finally realizing that all of their lip products just dry me out. Lipsticks, glosses, all of it. But this formulation feels like a balm — I could wear it every day. Best $19 I’ve spent this year. (Well, $15.20 — I waited for Sephora’s VIB sale!)
4. The music of Gin Wigmore
I guarantee you’ve heard her music on commercials in the last month — Heineken, Lowe’s. I downloaded everything I could get and she earned permanent rotation in my car for about four weeks straight. One of my favorite artists to come along in a very long while. I’d tell you which songs are my favorite, but I can’t narrow it down to fewer than five.
