Perfectly Bright Lips

Ever since red/bright lips hit the runway, I have been searching for the perfect red lipstick. This has been harder than I orginially thought b/c bright red lipstick tends to look weird on me. I can wear brick red, but bright true red, is too harsh. However, my search as finally ended.

When I was at Old Orchard Mall this weekend for some last minute xmas shopping, I stopped in Sephora to get some supplies for smoky purple eyes (seen on Rachel Bilson in InStyle) and I finally discover it... Smashbox Lip Stain in Infinity. It is the perfect bright red/berry, has the light, fresh look I have seen on the runway and it has real staying power. I usually put lipstick/lipgloss on in the morning, but after my morning coffee it is gone (and I'm too lazy to keep reapplying). The Smashbox Lip Stain has lasted through my morning coffee and lunch. I HIGHLY recommend this stain for everyday or for the perfect holiday party look.

First Post

Since this is my first post, I thought that I would give you a little info about myself and the blog...

About Me
I grew up in Northern Virginia (10 mins from D.C), went to college in Chicago, and currently reside in the Ravenswood neighborhood of Chicago.

I LOVE shopping for anything (groceries, food, furniture, etc...), finding cool places around my apartment, attempting to maintain my container garden, and most importantly finding the details that make life more fabulous.

About the Blog
Despite the growing number of design-themed blog (which I regularly read), I want to create a place where I can highlight my finds and pass them on to other people. I love the concept on sharing information through the blog format.

Hopefully in the next week I will have a better template and updates going...
