Not a New Year’s Resolution

It’s the beginning of the year, as you well know. In my opinion this is as good a time as any to reflect on my life and where it’s headed, probably because I have way less going on in the winter. The annual influx of new year’s resolutions posts proves I’m not alone. That’s not really what this is.

Italic Unbranded Luxury Goods: Quality > Status

Did you happen to take a peek at my Fendi By The Way since I first saw it in a San Francisco Neiman Marcus a few years ago.

Review: Fenty Moroccan Spice Eyeshadow Palette

Raise your hand if you’ve ever bought a beauty product just because of the packaging. Yeah, me too. The latest example: the Fenty Moroccan Spice eyeshadow palette. I’m an absolute sucker for pink and purple, so the case on this baby was irresistible from the first time I laid eyes on it. I occasionally try to be a responsible adult though, so I went to Sephora and swatched it before buying. Buy it I did, and here’s a review for you. Have I mentioned I love the case on this  ...
