The peachy-pink hue is bold, yet classic––trendsetters and timeless style icons alike have been spotted in the shade It’s daring and eye catching, but because it’s also universally flattering, there’s no risk involved.

Hamptons Chic: the Style Edit

Have you ever dreamed of lounging poolside decked out a crisp white bikini, floppy sun hat, and all your best jewelry? 

It might sound silly, but why not? If diamonds really are a girl’s best friend, then why do we limit ourselves so much on when we can wear them? Glamour is all about mixing high and low, and making the mundane feel luxurious. Not that there’s anything boring about a beautiful hot day in the middle of summer when you have nothing to do but kick back and relax. 

We love the West Coast (in spite of San Francisco’s chilly summers) but when it comes to making the most of the season (and dressing to the nines), we think our East Coast counterparts are onto something. And there’s nothing that sums up easy, effortless, laid-back luxury better than summer in the Hamptons. After all, how many places are there where ‘summering’ is a verb? 

We just launched a necklace, a nautical-inspired tee, and a pair of earrings that perfectly embody this vibe, but we didn’t want to stop there. With summer’s last hurrah fast approaching, we’re running out of time to celebrate all things cool, casual, and carefree, but it’s not too late to make up for lost time. 

You can shop the video here to get a little East Coast style inspiration––or, keep scrolling for photos that will make you feel like you were really there, even if you spent all of June and July cooped up in the city.

Match Your Cupcake to Your Manicure

Happy Wednesday! After the long 4th of July weekend, you’re probably just getting back into things, catching up, and easing into a five day week again. The week can feel endless, but don’t despair––you’re halfway there. (Okay, so maybe you’ve been back for a full week and a half already, but summer Fridays are so sweet, sometimes it can take a little while to get over them.)

To help you get through the hump day doldrums, we thought you might need a little pick-me-up. And what could be better than cupcakes? 

…Unless you don’t have much of a sweet tooth––then you might prefer to treat yourself by getting pampered with a mani pedi. 

Choices, choices. But who says you have to pick just one? So, to put a little spring in your step (and inspire you to get creative this weekend) here you are: cupcakes, AND manicures. Matching ones. Adorable? Yes. Indulgent? Absolutely. Delicious? Well, at least the cupcakes should be. Enjoy!

(Don’t have such steady hands but want to do your own nails? Try the Julep Plie––this handy little tool is ergonomically shaped to give you more precision and control when painting your nails, especially with your non-dominant hand.)

What’s your 5 minute makeup routine? Pretty sure my husband wishes I had a 5-minute routine :-) Brows, shadow, eyeliner, mascara, lip balm… that’s my “bare” minimum.

DIY beauty hack: I’m typically too cheap to get my hair professionally colored…so I get my husband to do it for me! He’ll be so embarrassed if anyone finds out!

Favorite product to switch things up: Eyeshadow; colored eyeliner (I love a deep plum); nail polish; blush (sometimes peachy, sometimes rosy)

image

What products do you keep in your purse at all times? Dior Glow Lip Plumper/Gloss; Fresh Sugar Rose Lip Treatment; Lipstick Queen Medieval Lipstick; Mini Purell; Boscia Blotting Linens

#1 skincare must: Skinceuticals CE Ferulic Serum + Obagi SPF 50 Matte Sunscreen

Makeup product you can’t live without: Dior Lash Primer

Hair product you have to have: My Philip B Round Brush

image

Go-to date night look:  A bold red lip — I’ve love Julie Hewett’s Femme Noir; Bronzed/blushed cheeks - NARS Laguna + Sunday Riley Blush in Honest; Crisp, waterproof liner - Blinc Eyeliner Pencil (in brown); great neutral shadows

Pick one: dramatic eye makeup or bold lipstick? I love bold lips! One of my new favorites is Lipstick Queen Vesuvius Lipstick in Coral or Fuchsia

image

Best kept beauty secret: Grande Lash MD —- my normally short, thin lashes are long and thick now! I shared the secret with my mom who has indistinguishable lashes, and hers are lush and amazing now, too! Shhh!

Favorite lipstick shade: I love to mix it up, but some of my everyday favorites are: Lipstick Queen Chinatown Lip Pencil in Scarlet Red; Givenchy Rouge Interdit Satin Lipstick in Beige Champagne; Fresh Sugar Lip Treatment in Berry; Stila Lip Glaze in Kitten; Kimiko Sheer Tint and Lip Plumper in Sweet Plum

image

Any beauty tricks for beach days? Supergoop! SPF; Ray Ban Aviator Sunglasses; J.Crew beach hat; Enamel Pony Cuff; Tan Towel Towelettes in Plus; no foundation/tinted moisturizer so it’s super easy to keep applying SPF to my face

Hair for every day: Either 1) blown out sleek and straight; 2) a low ponytail; 3) a high top knot bun (with the Sarah Potempa wrap up)

image

Favorite low-maintenance hair trick: On mornings when I’m too lazy to give myself a blowout, I default to a super easy side-parted low pony. I spiff it up with a cute enamel pony cuff —- black is so classic and goes with everything! :-)

Must have tool that simplifies your routine: Japonesque Lash Curler —- okay, this doesn’t “simplify” my routine, but I love long, curled lashes —- they totally open my eyes and make me look more awake.

image

Time saver: The T3 hair dryer —- it’s expensive, but it totally saves time in the morning. Can you really put a price on 5 extra minutes of sleep?

Favorite fragrance: Depends on my mood, but I love Chanel Mademoiselle; Caudalie The Des Vignes; Pinrose Merry Maker

Ingredient you’re obsessed with: Retinol; Vitamin C

image

What’s your favorite thing about yourself? The older I get, the more comfortable I am in my own skin. I’m learning what it means to really love myself —- which means being thankful for all the things that make me…me.

Trend you want to try: I’m not super “trendy” when it comes to makeup, but I’m always inspired by a beautiful, sophisticated bronze/gold lid. 

What upcoming beauty innovation are you excited for (or wish existed)?: I’m intrigued by Tria Beauty’s Age-Defying Laser —- if I can get dermatologist-like results at home, I’m sold :-)
