{style: kisses for national lipstick day}

Today is a day to celebrate beauty whether you’re a beauty fanatic or not. Every woman owns at least one lipstick, it’s like a passage to womanhood. We all have childhood memories of watching our moms put it on when getting ready for a night out, staring in awe as we watched the transformation. Now some of us have embraced our feminine side more than others in the reality of adulthood but there’s still nothing like some colour to bring attention to that smile. 

I personally love a pop of colour and wear lipstick often – it’s one of my favourite accessories!  I love that bright & bold shades are in right now and today is a perfect excuse to either try lipstick for a change or grab a new colour if you’re lipstick lover. Have fun with it. 

turn ’em on in neon: try Nars lipstick in Shiap
red that pops: try Revlon in Love that Red
orange you pretty: try Mac lipstick in Sweet & Sour
pretty in purple: try Cover Girl lipstick in Embrace


{say I do: bold love}

Oh wow, oh wow do I ever love everything about this beautiful wedding that was featured on 100 Layer Cake yesterday. Where do I start? I think it’s the bold colours of the flowers that really drew me in then all the other details just got me drooling. Love the mix n’ match chairs and all the vintage furniture. I think my favourite is the seating area with the couches. I see many good laughs over cocktails happening over there.  It all fits perfectly with the beautiful loft space at the Wythe Hotel in NYC as the backdrop. 

Oh and how great is the bride’s flower belt for the reception?!


Man, I bet that was one good party. See all the drool-worthy details here
