I’ve always had dry skin and hair, so moisturizing is a task that’s been on my mind since approximately the 7th grade. My obsession with it only got more intense when I moved to New York from Atlanta; the winters here are dryer, longer and more punishing than the ones I was used to in my hometown.
Beauty product reviews and news
If I can be unguarded for a moment (and I feel like this is a place of honesty), I’d like to admit that I spend a lot of time thinking about my hair. I always have. It’s naturally curly, fine and thin, but I come from a region where a woman’s hair should be her perfectly coiffed crowning glory, so I’ve spent my entire life changing its color and learning how to make it do whatever I want.
We’ve been thinking about, talking about and obsessing over bags even more than usual lately, so for this week’s edition of Want It Wednesday, we thought it’d be nice to go in a slightly different direction: beauty. Fall beauty, to be exact, which is full of moisturizer, vampy eye makeup and richly colored lipstick.
Most fragrances strike me as seasonal; as soon as I get a whiff, it’s instinctually clear during which months a particular scent will do its best work, just like most colors or textures lean one way or the other. Transitional months are a little trickier; you need a scent that’s not too sweet for cool evenings but that won’t stink up any space you’re in on warm afternoons.
There’s been some noticeable crispness in the morning air lately, and now that the calendar has turned to August, we can no longer avoid the fact that fall is coming at us. While it’s too warm during the days for fall clothes, there are little ways that you can start your seasonal transition without producing any excess sweat; one of the best is with a new nail polish.
I spent a lot of years on our PurseForum before I officially joined the company, and during that time I saw hundreds, if not thousands, of bag lovers reference the divine smell of a new bag’s leather. Fashion is an experience that usually only involves one or two senses, but luxury leather has an instantly recognizable stink, and to love bags is to love that smell.
