Bioderma Crealine H20 Solution Micellaire cleanser I’ve read enough beauty blogs to know that Bioderma Crealine is a bit of a cult make-up item. Regularly touted as one of the best make-up removers, it seemed without question that I’d be loathe to not pick up a bottle when I spotted it at Priceline (probably on […]

The four accessories you need this winter

It’s cold outside, the days are shorter, and those early starts feel just a little too difficult. It’s winter alright, which for me usually means crawling under the covers until the last possible minute, and typically spending 1 minute throwing on an outfit as opposed to 10. On those mornings (which occur more often than […]

Aesop facial cleanser, Aesop B&T Toner, Aesop resurrection hand balm, Diptyque DoSon eau de parfum I’m not usually the first to rush to the beauty counter, but I couldn’t resist dropping by Aesop and Mecca on the way home. Initially, I’d just planned on replenishing my dwindling skincare supply, yet after a good 45 minutes […]

Zara breton stripe mariniere (similar), Karen Walker skirt (similar), Vintage chelsea boots, Marc by Marc Jacobs katie bracelet When it comes to getting my hair cut, I’m usually of the less is more persuasion. As in, less cuts at the hairdresser, and more done with varying precision in front of the vanity mirror. This reluctance […]

Beauty notes for Spring

I’ve never been one of those girls who manages to accumulate drawers and drawers of beauty products, always opting for the most minimal approach possible. There’s something satisfying in knowing that your make-up routine takes less than five minutes to apply, and can easily be cut down to the basics of bronzer and mascara when […]

I’ve always been that girl who was completely clueless about make up. Following the lead of my friends in high school, I slicked some mascara on my top lashes, and smudged a little black kohl in the bottom corners of my eyes. I couldn’t say whether I ever bothered to moisturize, the only real “regime” […]

img src: various tumblr A little bit of what I’m currently into, a complete mixed bag of seasons, but for the most part, season-less. Breton striped tees whimsically tucked into full skirts or an array of shorts, statement necklaces that make an outfit pop, black on black on black, especially when the luxury of leather […]
