September Cravings

September Cravings

1. Lipstick XO Lipstick Holder: How fabulous is this? It's perfect if you want to display all of your lipsticks on your vanity. They even have a custom color option, and a holder with an attached storage box for lip liners or glosses.

2. CosmoCube: Premium high quality makeup organizer. CosmoCube includes three interchangeable dividers that will fit in any of the CosmoCube drawers. The first is a 9 section divider perfect for lipsticks and lipgloss. The next is a 3 section divider made especially to accommodate 10 large foundation bottles or anything of the sort.  The third divider is our special criss cross, 4 section divider for eye shadow pallets, bronzer/blush pallets as well as any and all eye makeup.
3. Glam Bomb Cosmetics Lip-Splosive in Vixen: Lip-splosives combine high intense pigments with moisturizing agents for vibrant long wearing, beautiful lips with a satin finish. The lightweight formula is infused with peppermint oil to leave your lips feeling fresh throughout the day. 
4. Melt Cosmetics Lipstick in Stupid Love: For these cruelty free lipsticks, they combined the most ultra-matte texture with the most vibrant colors. With the vanilla cake scent you'll want to leave yummy kisses all over everyone you come into contact with!

5. Girly Bits Cosmetics Nail Lacquer in Dick In A Box: Obviously named after the Justin Timberlake and Andy Samberg world famous SNL Skit. Which happens to debut on the same day as the second half of Justin Timberlake's new album. It seems to be a slate grey lacquer with scattered holo.

Leather Look Inspiration

Leather, faux leather, leatherette and vegan leather are big trends for Fall. And, you know what I'm going to say, I'M OBSESSED. I love that this trend is spreading like wildfire. What I don't like is that designers will not let the leather speak for itself! Because leather has always been seen as rocker chic, it is always adorned with spikes or some other type of hardware. Leather can honestly be taken in any direction from grungy to elegant, so let the people dress it up or dress it down the way they want. I recently saw a man that was wearing a simplistic leather buttondown (no hardware...even the buttons were a basic black) and I wanted to crawl all over him. 
Less is more.

Ulyana Sergeenko A/W 2013

People that know me well, and even the people that don't, know that Ulyana Sergeenko is my all time favorite designer. She is a walking oxymoron, everything that is modern and vintage at the same time. Like the smell of chimney smoke on a cold winter's night, she evokes memories that you didn't know you had. You crave her just by looking at photos of her work. Quite simply, she's amazing.

I want her to create a custom wedding dress for me. Hopefully, when the time comes I'll be able to afford her.

The only similarity from this line and her 2012 collection is the utter femininity.

I only included my favorites which, unsurprisingly, almost the entire collection!
Which pieces are your favorite?
