L'Oreal Colour Riche Lipstick, British Red - I like mixing it up with this fun red. Its got a funky splash of orange to it that perks me right up. These L'Oreal lipsticks wear really well and don't smear around ... a must when wearing red!
[Side note: Since I wear red lipstick a lot, and have for years, I often get asked how to prevent getting lipstick on your teeth. So here's the trick ... I think I learned this on Oprah in the 90's / recant / momma says this is a tip from her! ... Form an O shape with your mouth. Using your index finger, stick it in your mouth, close your lips around your finger and pull your finger out. This will remove the excess lipstick from the inside of your lips that would have ended up on your teeth . Voila.]
Gucci Guilty - I can't stop smelling my wrists. I like this new perfume with its citrus and floral notes and a dash of patchouli. Notes: Mandarin, Pink Pepper, Peach, Lilac, Geranium, Amber, Patchouli. Loving it.
Pinkberry's Seasonal Flavor, Blood Orange - I love Pinkberry. I really love it. A mini Pinkberry is only 100 calories which makes it even better. Their current seasonal flavor is blood orange which is sweet and tart and amazingly refreshing. Yum yum.
Aldo Nalini Bone Pump - I think these may be my spring/summer neutral pumps. I like the peep toe, the "wood" look on the heel and I think its a good nude for my skin tone. More to come on this, but we may have a winner.
House of Harlow Key Cocktail Ring - House of Harlow is Nicole Richie's vintage inspired 1960 jewelry line. I'm in love with this and wearing it all the time.
Essie Mini Shorts Nail Laquer - What I'm wearing and loving right now.

“Expect to have hope rekindled. Expect your prayers to be answered in wondrous ways. The dry seasons in life do not last. The spring rains will come again.”
Although the only cure for my spring fever is spring itself, I picked up these pretties on my way home yesterday. A little promise that winter won't last forever and spring is coming.

Sleep Mask - I love my little mask and its cute black ruffle. I've posted about the gloriousness of the sleep mask before [here]. However, its gotten to the point now where I can't sleep without it. I lay in bed and my mind reels and reels until I think ... wait why am I not sleeping ... where's the mask? Mask goes on and its zzzzip ... lights out. Oh I love it.
Sergio Rossi Caged Slingback Sandal - I am stalking these sandals. I think they are so adorable with their peep toe and little heel. I think they are so sweet for summer and would look darling with short shorts and a basic tee. The little straps make me think of wearing jellies in kindergarten. Why ... why are these shoes $200? I don't understand this. How can I make them not $200?
Grandma June's Locket Necklace - The last time I visited my grandmother's house I came across this locket in her jewelry box and promptly said, "Grandma, I'm taking this." I love this necklace. I feel I am wearing it a lot lately ... it goes with everything.
Quilted Chanel Handbag - I have to make myself carry something other than this purse. Otherwise I am carrying it all ... the ... time. No explanation needed. It rocks my socks.
Essie Licorice Nail Polish - What I'm wearing and loving right now.
Nars Cream Blush - I've never owned cream blush before ... always been pretty traditional with the ole powder blush. However, I love blush, so I thought what the heck. Its not nuclear fission, it's just blush and I'm having fun with it. Good choice.

Anthropologie Perfume Bottles - I've wanted these for like a year. I've looked at them and hand them in my hand and decided against them a number of times. I've finally succumb to the temptation ... and am quite pleased I did. Pretty huh?
Sunglasses and Matching Cases - Kind of obsessed with this. I love my new sunglasses [posted here] and even more exciting they have a matching case. It doesn't take much to get me excited. More cute sunnies with matching case [here].
New York Notebook - Isn't this fun? This is a Cavallini notebook that perfectly fits in my purse. I just think its cute and it reminds me ... "Hey you live in New York!" which is fun to be reminded of.
Letters - One of my most favorite things in the world is opening up my mailbox and seeing a letter or a card that is just for me. I ... love ... it. It totally makes my day. I think in the age of tweets and posts and mass messaging, it is so meaningful to know someone took time out of their busy day to sit down and hand write you a letter. No one has time to do this, so you know they've made the time for just you! It makes me feel so special and connected ... which is especially important when you live far away. [Reminder ... I need to catch up on my correspondence.]
Empire State Building Figurine - I bought this last weekend in Times Square in true tourist fashion. I love it. It's so kitsch and fun. Makes me happy.
Cupcakes - Do you know what's wrong with a cupcake? Absolutely nothing.
