I love a bold colored lip. Hot pink and red are my typical picks because they go so well with my everyday, all-black outfits and my beach blonde locks.

And, the matte or semi-satin lip colors I
I’ve been majorly jiving on a vintage jewelry kick as of late. Anything that has an old, authentic feel has been catching my eye. Vintage watch chains with dog clips, statement rhinestone necklaces, a graduated moonstone collar, perfect gold tassel charms: yes, yes, yes.
