shadows are just as important as light

Written by , Posted in trader joes

CAPES [something empowering] In looking at a masterpiece of art, you’ll find that the contrast is key; the shadows are just as important as the light. Think of your life as a piece of art: without the shadows, you wouldn’t appreciate the light.

COFFEE [latest trend or addiction] Lately, my daily treat has been TJ’s dark chocolate almonds. Sprinkled with a touch of sea salt and turbinado sugar = delicious.

THE COLOR ORANGE [something noteworthy] This week, I put my puffy down jackets away. About time.

new uses for powder and lipstick

Written by , Posted in coffee

CAPES [something empowering] Don’t show up late to a meeting with Starbucks in your hand. It only reinforces the reason why you were late and decreases the effect of your “cape” persona.

COFFEE [latest trend or addiction] Two make-up items I’m constantly running low on: eyeshadow base color and blush. Two items that work well in the meantime: powder and lipstick. Most eyeshadow base colors are close to powder colors, anyway (and it’s probably made of the same substance), and lipstick (when used in moderation) smudged on your cheeks gives a fun pop and glow that I think works better than powdery blush.

THE COLOR ORANGE [something noteworthy] Happy Easter weekend, everyone…and in regards to the fun-filled, pastel-colored eggs…you’ve been warned.
