After making the big move across the country to San Francisco almost three years ago, I’m frequently asked what I like most about living in here. San Francisco is a fabulous city, with tons of amazing things to do and see. The culture here is vibrant and the energy effervescent. However, whenever people ask about my favorite aspect about SF, my first answer is always a bit surprising. Can you guess?
Hourglass is one of my favorite beauty brands; their products are a cosmetics masterpiece. I love the Mineral Veil Primer and the Ambient Lighting Powders are a staple in my makeup collection. I vacillated over buying the Hourglass No. 28 Lip Treatment Oil for months, lured in by the thick, velvety texture and herbaceous scent but deterred by the hefty price tag. I finally caved in and treated myself to it, and kept it in my bag to use as a luxurious treat on my daily commute. However, a few weeks later, I came across another product that changed everything.
California may be my current home, but Maine will always be home home. Mainers are unfussy in their style, preferring function over fashion and classic pieces that will stand the test of time. My style has always been casual and has remained true to my Mainer roots.
Today, I’ve teamed up with Old Navy to share an outfit that is inspired by my home state of Maine!
A good man is hard to find. So is a good nude lip. Nude lipsticks usually walk the fine line of looking either too rosy or looking like you’re an extra on The Walking Dead. I personally enjoy staying on the cool/pink toned side of things, as I’m really not looking for an acting career. This summer, I’ve been wearing these four nude lip colors on nonstop rotation, with hardly even a glance at my usual summer brights. These lippies have a special way of making my lips look fuller, evening out my complexion, and meshing with every outfit I’m wearing. Magical.
There is very little in this life that’s more important to me than sleep, and I would sacrifice most things for a tight 8 hours. There’s just something about luxuriating in bed that feels so unbelievably indulgent to me. In the morning, I stay in bed until the last possible minute, giving myself juuuust enough time to take a quick shower, brush my teeth, and give my hair a quick zhuzz with some dry shampoo. At night, I’m rarely in bed past 10:30 PM. I’m a light sleeper and sensitive to light and noise, so I’ve picked up my fair share of tricks over the years to optimize my sleep time and prevent tossing and turning.
