Daily Beauty: MAC Kid Orange Nail Lacquer

I am obsessed with this new nail polish from the Cook MAC Collection. This shade is called Kid Orange, a vibrant orange-red that is super glossy and perfect for spring.

This reminds me of my favorite part of the morning, just before the sun comes up here in Kauai, with all the possibilities and excitement of a brand new day.

MAC Kid Orange Nail Lacquer is available online at Maccosmetics.com for $16.

Daily Style: White + Warren Cashmere Eye Mask


Last week on a trip to Omaha, Nebraska for a UFC event, I left my most favorite White + Warren cashmere scarf in the arena where I watched Jake Ellenberger beat Diego Sanchez live at UFC on Fuel. (I know, I know, UFC means nothing to you!)

Since I can’t go on with life before replacing my scarf, I have been perusing whiteandwarren.com in search of a new scarf in an updated color (I’m thinking royal blue, magenta or maybe even citron!). Meanwhile, I came across this super comfy cashmere eye mask. This is the perfect gift for the friend that loves to travel, or the new mom that just wants to sleep in. Get on it quick before they sell out!

You’re welcome.


Daily Style: Iota Large Cosmetic Case


Last week I was shopping around for a new lunchbox for Janey when I found this sunny Iota large cosmetic case at a local boutique.

I need another makeup bag like I need another spoiled, demanding daughter, but I couldn’t resist. The bright pink and orange lotus flowers and super roomy insides make this makeup bag irresistible to me.

The interior has three slim pockets for stashing things like short makeup brushes, eye drops, or my favorite Tweezerman tweezers. Also, the canvas material is machine washable for easy clean up!

Iota Large Cosmetic Case is available online at CRGibson.com for $20.



Minted Tathata Dress from Anthropologie

Last night in Santa Monica, I popped into Anthropologie to kill time before dinner and immediately spied this green Minted Tathata Dress from Plenty by Tracy Reese.

I love how the vibrant turquoise color makes the dress feel bold yet the delicate lace detail adds a certain sweetness. The floaty, romantic shape is perfect for keeping cool and looking fresh on a warm summer night.

Minted Tathata Dress from Plenty by Tracy Reese is available online at Anthropologie for $168.
