Four obsessions for December 2012

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.
