{dom + elle look book cover options}

It has been a busy, busy, busy summer. I wanted to share my latest project with you. Last March, I partnered with a couture luxury swimwear designer for dom + elle {see original blog post}. We partnered again to create the first look book for the brand. I absolutely love creating look books {fashion + graphics} my two favorites. I love doing graphic layouts and making each page unique and stylized to the brand. For the typography, I went with a modern serif font that was inspired by fashion magazines like Vogue + Elle. Love the thin quality of the type and mixing it up with the sharpie-like handwritten font. This was such a fun project. {You can see the online look book here}  Here is a glimpse of the final cover and completed dom + elle look book…

Where I Sleep…

For the last month, I’ve been working on a personal project – my bedroom.  It’s been so nice and I look forward to going to bed these days.  The makeover included a new bed, a new dresser, new art and frames, bedding and accessories mixed of new and vintage touches.  It started with this bed from West Elm – the James Harrison Bed in tweed. I absolutely love the high upholstered head-board. It’s absolutely comfortable. Of course with a new bed, you need new bedding. I went with a classic, yet modern white texture. I love white bedding it reminds me of chic hotels. From there, I decided to get a new dresser. I found this lovely dresser called the Audrey  – also from West Elm. It’s the perfect mix of mid-century modern and glamour. I love it.  I couldn’t stop there, I bought new frames and art prints that I adored and actually designed some too. I’m happy with the way everything turned out and wanted to share with you. Here is a glimpse…

Lorac Refined Romance

Hello and happy makeup monday! I’ve missed you. I went to the Nordstrom sale a few weeks ago and came across Lorac’s Refined Romance Eye/Cheek Palette. I love it and am so obsessed with it. I’ve been using it everyday since I got it! My favorite out of the whole palette is the Gold Shimmer eye shadow {i know surprise, surprise}.  The gold shimmer is so  perfect for that summer bronze glow.  I also love the shimmer highlighters – I use it for my upper cheeks and nose to give that subtle highlight. It’s the best and color palette is truly romantic. The best part is that this palette is retails for $18. That is amazing for a palette. GO GET IT NOW!  Here is a glimpse of the colors….

makeup monday // Becca X Jaclyn Hill

Becca x Jaclyn HillOn June 16th Beauty enthusiasts will be so happy to get their hands on the new Becca x Jaclyn Hill palette. A limited-edition, iconic face palette, featuring five shades of highlighter and blush—in collaboration with Jaclyn Hill, creator of the original Champagne Pop. Champagne pop is major.  Champagne Pop is a limited edition shade of BECCA’s Shimmering Skin Perfector, which is a cult favorite product among beauty fans.

Becca x Jaclyn Hill

It’s really true – I’ve tried Champagne Pop and I ABSOLUTELY Love it. A month ago, I got a beauty alert about this special palette. I ordered it immediately and I’m glad I did because it sold out. I’ve been using the palette for a couple of weeks and I love the shimmer and love the colors. I was so eager to use it that I swiped my brushes across the colors before taking photographs.  This palette gives you all the glow you could want—all in one place.  Here is a glimpse….
