my beauty + fashion obsessions

I love summer.
I’ve been on the hunt for dresses for a handful of summer weddings for a while now, so when I saw this summery number from Ali Ro at CUSP in Boston, I was elated. So excited, in fact, that I wore it last night to Aaron’s special birthday dinner!

IT’S A LOBSTA!

I’ll confess, one of the reasons I really, really wanted an iPhone was because of the cases. I’m sure I’m not alone in this fact - there are so many to choose from and it’s become quite the industry! Anyhow, once I finally got my iPhone, I couldn’t settle on just one. That is, until I found this LOBSTA case from Tory Burch! It was even on sale, which meant that I HAD to have it. Arent’ the claws adorable?

Today  I wished my ear lobes were cuter…
…true story. I’ve always had larger earlobes, which, in the grand scheme of things, isn’t an unforgivable trait, but it’s been one that always bothered me. And then I grew up, and lots of other things caught up really fast - my persistant under-eye circles (it’s not JUST lack of sleep, I swear!), unwanted hair, and thighs that touch just a smidge more than I would like. However, now my large earlobes are like long toes (of which I am also afflicted) - you never notice them until they prevent you from getting something awesome.
Which brings me to today - I had “a day” and decided that I needed to treat myself to something sparkly. I’ve always liked skulls in theory, but have yet to actually purchase something skully, so I gravitated towards these awesome mini-skull earrings from Dogeared. They were dainty, cute skulls, not goth and alternative. Alas… once I tried them on, I noticed the ratio of lobe-to-gold was inexcusable. I looked at them from many different angles, but the decision had been made: No cute skull earrings for me.
It was a sad day. I left Bloomie’s empty-handed, and replaced my cute little skulls with a bottle (or four) of wine from Wine Warehouse, which made me feel marginally better.

These Megan Thorne rings are stunning, right? I’ve wanted to try stacking rings for a while now, but I haven’t been able to find the perfect set. I love the bright colors, and the beautiful settings - check them out!

Today was a big day… my first day at a brand new job! As of today, I am the new social media manager at Creative Media Marketing, or CMM. I’m still working in beauty, and with some really amazing brands, and I couldn’t be more excited!
In many ways, the first day of work feels like the first day of school. You get to pick out all of your supplies, meet new people and start learning about new projects. And best of all, you have to pick out the outfit you’re going to wear on your first day.
Not knowing exactly what to expect in terms of dress code, I opted for this colorful dress from Express. Paired with nude pumps and a long gold necklace, it was exactly what I was looking for.
