Huda Beauty’s Liquid Matte lip colors are my absolute favorite. Above pictured is MEDUSA, a trendy, ‘dusty mauve.’ I am wearing it in the following photograph:

The formulation has a pleasant and subtle vanilla scent when applied. The scent dissipates quickly. It goes on wet and dries quickly to a matte finish. I find this brand to have extremely excellent staying power. After eating an apple, unsliced, I did not lose any of the color or have to re-apply. It is only mildly drying to the lips. In fact, I did not really notice any drying after I removed it at all.

 

Huda is available on Sephora. The company website has more products but does not offer shipping to the United States, unfortunately.

 

Five out of five starts for this product!

Unicorn Frappuccino at Starbucks !!!

Food

Unicorn Frappucino

In case you have been living under a rock and haven’t heard, Starbucks has a limited edition release of The Unicorn Frappuccino from April 19 to the 23rd.

Of course, I had to try! Wearing my finest Lilly Pulitzers, I went to a nearby Starbucks only to find that they were SOLD OUT! Already?!?! Sold out of ingredients on Day #2??? Wow.

Luckily, the employee directed me to a Starbucks where I could indulge in this rare treat.

The Unicorn drink looks as pretty as all the Instagram and web photos out there, and I looked at it for a while before starting to drink it. I had heard terrible reviews of the taste and expected something disgusting. It was not bad at all, actually. The blue sour streak was a little harsh, but the pink mango flavored part was very pleasant. The whip cream on top is great because whip cream is always great. And yes, when you stir it up, it turns purple.

I’m headed out to run a few miles now. You’ll have to after drinking this. It is very sugary heavy and totally unhealthy. People at Starbucks hate making it too. See this webpage for some runny rants!

!!! Latest S’well bottle to add to my collection !!!

These are in fact oranges, NOT peaches, like I mistakenly thought at first. This print is my favorite so far.

Now for the elusive Mermaid print…

If you call your local Starbucks, chances are these bottles are LOOOONG gone. People came in at 5am to get them at some locations, I heard. However, do not lose hope – one Starbucks I called said they are getting a shipment in late Saturday afternoon/evening for release to the shelves either that night or Sunday morning. These bottles will continue to trickle into Starbucks stores everywhere. But where is the question – a lot of Starbucks have no idea at all where they will be.

You can always wait for the Online release – whenever that will be.

Or try to win one off the Lilly Pulitzer website here!!!

Starbucks’s Colab with Lilly Pulitzer on S’well Bottles – SCORE!

Happy Valentine’s Day!

What better gift than discovering two of the Lilly Pulitzer on S’well bottles for Starbucks!!!

They are very pretty. In person, I think they look a lot prettier than the photos. S’well bottles are great too – I had one I used for years and it got quite beat up. They really do keep liquids hot or cold for a long period of time and this is great for busy people on the go with no access to a refrigerator, especially.

I am currently searching for the Peach and Mermaid bottles now!!! Has anyone been able to score these prints?!? Who out there has gotten their hands on these amazing bottles???

These are selling out like crazy and not all Starbucks locations have received them. There are plenty of articles out there saying that they will be available online at the end of the month.

Birds of North America Planes Lovebird Dress

Fashion

Birds of North America is a clothing company from Canada that makes really pretty dresses. I just ordered one called the Lovebird Dress in the black planes pattern. I could not resist! I love the print – retro airplane designs – and the dress is totally flattering with a full front button closure.

It is made of a non-stretch cotton, so I totally took a gamble on the size. I have purchased dressed from them in the past, so I emailed the designer, Hayley, from the address on the website, and she helped me pick a size that she thought would fit based on my previous purchases. Totally amazing service, and the dress fit 100% perfectly!!!

It is a little long on me since I’m kind of short, but with some heels, no problem. The look is sort of retro-vintage and a little conservative. For some reason, wearing the dress gives me an ‘I Love Lucy’ vibe. I can make this dress into a pin-up look with Victory Rolls in my hair, some red lipstick, and a pair of sweet heels.
