The dreary weather here in New York has got me down.  What do I when I feel down?  I make lists.  The delusional idea that I'm organized makes me calm and all is good in the world.  These items are all on my want list for Spring/Summer 2012!  What's on yours??

City Bound

"We are all inventors, each sailing out on a voyage of discovery, guided each by a private chart, of which there is no duplicate.  The world is all gates, all opportunities." -Ralph Waldo Emerson

So, this weekend I went shopping...
City bound wearing jeans, wedges and purse by h&m, vintage sunglasses, Nella Fatasia sweater
I just had to buy this monteau Los Angeles dress.  The floral print and color scheme scream pretty!

I love when a dress comes with a belt.  
I needed a springy jacket/blazer so I found this Jaclyn Smith blazer at Kmart.  Not sure if you can tell in the photo but it's navy and white.  I feel like this would go with most of my wardrobe.  And it was 30% off!
I tried not to look at bags (my obsession) but I found this multi-use bag at H&M.  It's very spacious for all the crap I lug around and the color is very Springy.
XOXO cheetah belt...enough said.  You will find that I also have an obsession with animal print.
Taking this awkward picture was the only way to show you my new favorite headband.  The photo doesn't exemplify the color scheme well.  Peachy pink and yellow tones.  

Peace and love

Au Naturel...not

"Life isn't about finding yourself.  Life is about creating yourself." -George Bernard Shaw

My daily makeup routine is pretty low-maintenance.  I use Garnier under eye roller for my growing dark circles.  Recently, I purchased Bare Minerals Ready bronzer and I love it.  I usually shy away from using bronzer.  With buildable coverage, my very fair skin looks glowy not orange or dirty like other bronzers.  My lashes are short and lifeless so I use a curler and some Maybelline mascara.  Maybelline Baby Lips lip balm is also another recent purchase I love.  It leaves my lips super soft with a tint of pink.  Throughout the day, I touch up with classic Chapstick.  If I want to feel a little glamorous I use Maybelline Expertwear Eyeliner in Blackest Black.  Huh, I just realized how many Maybelline products I use.  Anywho, this is my basic daily routine during the week.  Of course, the weekends usually call for more glitz like cat eyes or red lips (my fave).My daily makeup routine (pretty simple)
