The last time I was in Paris, a little boutique on the rue de Rennes I had seen months before in the construction phase, was finally open. In it, I found an indispensable product: a soft purse organizer. Not only does it keep things in place, but it also make changing handbags a cinch because you just move the whole organizer from purse to purse. And it comes in different models, sizes and colors.
Mine is a leopard pattern but I could use another in a bright. I haven't found the brand, Tintamar, in America, but it can be ordered from the UK.
For the love of lashes
Lately, people have been complimenting me on my long, thick lashes. Since it wasn't so long ago they seemed thin to me, I guess all I've been doing to bulk them up is working. So in this post, I want to share my lash regimen with you so you, too, can benefit from it.
This program started because I am hopeless applying fake lashes and those that are done by a professional cost more than I wanted to pay. This is what I do:
Step 1 – Apply RevitaLash to my upper lash line every night. It took about 3 months for my lashes to look thicker, a difference that was huge for me.
Step 2 – Rim my upper inner lash line with a black kohl pencil. I use Guerlain Khol Me Kajal. This makes my lashes look thicker at their base.
Step 3 – Curl my lashes with a Tweezerman curler.
Step 4 – Apply several coats of Perfekt black mascara, which is the real secret. It's a gel that really builds up my lashes and takes them to great lengths without clumping. I also use a Lash Card to keep my mascara from smudging, while I layer it on.
If you have any lash secrets, let me know and I will post them. Just send me an email.
Easy January updates
Yes, I do tend to wear a lot of black. It's chic, easy and seasonless. And right about now, I like to pop my black with a few easy cream or white pieces, like this black and white cardigan. It works on its own as a top and over a tank or blouse as a jacket. Team it with a solid or checked skirt or trousers or over a simple black sheath and you have a look that can take you through spring. A glittery necklace is a nice finishing touch.
