The new Caboodle

Laura Mercier Custom Artist Portfolio

This case is amazing!!  I’m totes obsessed with this genius travel and makeup organization portfolio.  It is so sleek and the perfect size without being the least bit bulky and it holds a ton, seriously I think I have 2 foundations, bronzer, 2 blushes, 2 primers, and 2 sunscreens in there – and that’s not including eyes, brushes, tools, and etc.  I got so excited upon its arrival that I actually cleaned out an entire drawer in my bathroom and neatly organized all the products in my usual/current rotation to make room for it.  Ideal for travel but even more ideal for your day to day needs instead of just throwing everything in a bag which always seems oily/powdery from residue with tweezers and brushes hiding in the bottom and tops popping off eyeliners and disappearing…. Nope, not anymore!!  Love. Thx to my gal, Lindsey, for introducing me to this as well as several of the last few products I’ve posted about.

Things that make me happy...

Zoe Karssen tees

These are like the perfect vintage rock and roll tee minus a grubby previous owner, and instead of
advertising a band, Karssen’s tees all have cute tongue-in-cheek sayings or a fun take on pop art!  The sleeves are perfect, the length is perfect and the fabric is AMAZE. 

Current Elliott let out hem cropped jeans
My love affair with C/E continues… Finally a cropped jean that is a flattering ankle length on my 5’11 frame.  This is the ideal summer jean… perfect mid rise waist and great worn-in soft wash.  I have worn them with pumps, booties, and flip flops.


Frame denim

So comfy, so chic & they make me look so skinny.  Frame denim is so super stretchy yet holds its shape beautifully all the while holding you in.  No sagging tush in these guys.  I love the wash, minimal distressing & the perfect ankle length.  If you haven’t yet – you definitely need to give this brand a try!


Loren Stewart Jewelry

The most beautiful delicate dainty rose gold pieces that still give me the edge that I like in my every
day look.  I’m rocking the double heart lariat, 2 bangles (one three diamond and one sapphire bezel) and a miniature ID bracelet all from this killer LA based designer.  I LIVE in them. I’m not spoiled – my anniversary and mother’s day are 10 days apart – I got lucky!



Vince Pumps
A not too high 3 inch heel, the most beautiful leg lengthening nude color and a classic and timeless
silhouette.  I’m obsessed with suede shoes right now – something about them just feels so much more light & fresh than leather this time of year.  Adore!!!



Jeans.  T-shirts.
Pumps.  Jewelry.  WORD.   

**I’m going to try to
get better about snapping my weekend wear & sharing with you.

royal flush

Hourglass Ethereal Glow Ambient Lighting Blush

This light weight blush comes in such pretty shades and is so easy to blend and build making it fantastic for those who are blush application challenged!  Me!  It creates an instant natural multi- dimensional flush that brightens with a cool pink hue and a touch of luminosity. It’s basically impossible to overdo it with this guy. If you want to kick it up a notch opt for the “luminous flush” shade.
