I hope you had a great weekend! I hosted a Galentine’s Day brunch with a couple of my neighbors. It was so fun to get dressed up (I had a pink dress code) and play hostess (I’ll share my no-bake brunch soon). Today, I’m doing a fashion segment on KTLA on how to wear the colors of the year: gray and yellow. Below is my favorite piece from the segment, as well as some more finds making me happy….
5 THINGS I’M LOVING RIGHT NOW
#1 sunshine sweater
Considering yellow is one of the colors of the year, I knew I needed a yellow sweater in my life. It’s an instant brightener, both for your mood and your outfit. It has been pretty gray and hazy in LA so I’ve been wearing the sweater on repeat, mostly with jeans. I can’t help but smile when I see the color.
I was looking for a mirror to take outfit selfies for a while. I kept thinking I wanted some beautiful mirror, like the gold Primrose mirrors I see all over Instagram. But my wallet disagreed. So I settled upon a simple white standing mirror and I could not be happier. Since it’s super light and has a stand. So I can move it around my home for the best lighting. And when it’s against the wall, it just blends in.
Whenever I’m doing my makeup and I need to look more awake, I reach for my pale pink eyeliner. I put it in the bottom waterline and it instantly makes my eyes look more open. For a little definition, I usually add a soft brown shadow underneath on the outer corners. And then, of course, plenty of mascara.
Every since I discovered Snacklins I cannot stop eating them! They only have 80 calories per bag, so I don’t feel bad about it either. They’re made from yuca and mushroom, which I know sounds weird but I promise it’s crunchy and delicious. My fave flavor is Miso Ginger.
A Good Marriage reminded me a lot of Big Little Lies , in that I could not figure out the murderer until the very last chapter. The thriller is full of suspense, beginning when a successful businessman is arrested for the murder of his wife at their Park Slope home. He calls an old colleague to defend him, despite her constant protests. As the plot develops, the lawyer learns more about the couples of this affluent neighborhood and the dark truths behind their marriages. And she is forced to take a hard look at her own marriage as the case develops.
