Trend Alert: Plummy Lips!

Autumn is finally here! Well, in San Diego, it still feels very much like Summer... which makes me very happy. But regardless, Autumn has come, which means: I get to dust off all my fun scarves and boots, and eat pumpkin flavored everything (lattes! bread! tea! pie! cookies!)

I am a sucker for lip products, and I am ubber-dubber excited that PLUMMY lips are in this season. How ironic huh? Deep plums and wine shades look great on everyone because the hue complements a range of different skin tones (from Lady Gaga to Michelle Obama) It's sophisticated enough to wear to a work meeting, yet bold enough for a girl's night out.  

Would you?

It's Funday! Happy beginning of the weekend to all you Plummies out there. It's scheduled to be a warm one here in San Diego, so I intend on lounging at the beach as much as possible. But before then, I gotta take care of business. I have a morning therapy workshop to attend (check it out here), then a full 8-hour work day to conquer.

If you follow me on Instagram (sheelo), you may have noticed that apart from work, I've been doing a whole lotta wedding stuff, beach stuff, website stuff, and Costco stuff! All the essentials for a happy me!

My weekend line up includes: 
farmer's Market
wedding DIY's w/ Karl
yoga beach sesh

Whatcha got going on?

Healthy Me!

Good Tuesday morning to You! Every morning I typically roll out of bed and head straight to the kitchen to brew up my latte. While my Nespresso machine is hard at work, I open the cupboard and reach for my daily vitamin medley. 

-Women's gummie multi-vitamin (all the essentials) 
-Omega 3 / Fish Oil Gummies (raises HDL "good cholesterol", fights cancers, and the list goes on...) 
-Biotin (great for hair, skin, and nails)

Read more about the benefits of Omega 3 vitamins here

Do you take vitamins daily?

Wedding Series:Hair Accents


Happy Monday, Plummies! One thing I haven't figured out yet is: whether to wear my hair up, or down on the big day. It will be an outdoor wedding, so I know I want my hair to be romantic, soft, and somewhat undone (not too structured or neat). Even a bit of messiness, like some of the pictures above, would be ideal!

One thing I do know for sure is: I want to wear something in my hair. A flower, a feather, jewels, etc! If I don't find something affordable on Etsy, I will head to the craft store to create my own. :)
PS. Did you know that Etsy has a section dedicated to bridal hair accessories? Check it out here

Have a beautiful beginning of your week, and I will see you back here in a couple days. Xoxo

Lip Saver

Burt's Bees Tinted Lip Balm

Happy Friday, Plummies! Lately, it's been scorching hot here in San Diego (just the way I like it!), which has caused me to wear very minimal makeup.

Due to humidity, I have been neglecting all my high-gloss lip products for easy to wear balms and stains. I have had Burt's Bees Hibiscus Tinted Lip Balm in my bin-o-lippies for quite some time now, but I've just come to realize what a miracle it is.

It is my own lip color, but BETTER. It adds just the right amount of color to my face, moisturizes without overdoing it, and does not leave that nasty white film on the inner lining of my lips (some of you know exactly what I am talking about). In the morning, I can wash my face, slap some Burt on my lips and hit the gym without feeling like a pale-faced zombie (haha, how 'bout that for a description?!)

Ok, have a spectacular day, Darlings!

Trending: Mid Knuckle Rings



Top of the Thursday morning to Ya! 

For some time now I have been noticing a pretty unique trend emerge...Has anyone else been spotting "Mid Knuckle Rings"? I am sorta on the fence about these little guys. I haven't yet given one a go, perhaps because I don't think I'd feel comfy having a metal loop sit at the edge of my long skinny fingers. I imagine being too preoccupied with the worry of them falling off. But hey, I guess I shouldn't knock it 'til I try it.

Some cute ones found here, here, and here.
