Take a break from your Monday to enjoy these puppies swimming under water. I've read that looking at cute things is connected to increased productivity. Double win.

Adore Me


The name Adore Me came-up while in a meeting a few months ago and I later stumbled upon an ad a few weeks ago. The monthly lingerie subscription platform offers the option to select from your curated showroom or to decline. Other incentives include VIP collections (active & swim wear), complimentary shipping (both ways) and kick-backs after each 6th purchase. I was a little skeptical about the quality and fit for the price-point ($40-$60), but decided to dive in.

The package arrived a few days after purchase and I must admit I'm in love. The garments fit beautifully and are the same quality as retailers such as Natori and Victoria's Secret. I'm excited to discover my October Showroom in the coming weeks! Discover your new sexy little things here.

A woman photo shopped to fit in 22 Markets.

Cultural beauty standards are endlessly fascinating, no? Priscilla Yuka Wilson was photoshopped to fit into the coveted looks of 22 countries. Some are so altered, you wonder why  photographers wouldn't simply target another model. Check out the full series at Priscilla Yuki Wilson's webpage.

Discoveries: August GLOSSYBOX



Disclosure: I work at GLOSSYBOX.

GLOSSYBOX marked their 3rd Birthday with a new box design and six beauty essentials! Technically, the shampoo & conditioner are presented as one item, but it feels like two to me.

Included in my box:

Kryolan for GLOSSYBOX Highlighter in Cashmere | Full Size $18.95 Included!
If a highlighter isn't in your make-up regimen, I would highly recommend jumping on the bandwagon. Your cheekbones will thank you! Kryolan features a multipurpose formula for use on cheekbones, eyes and lips. The product applies sheer and can be built-up for more dramatic looks.


Lamoon Beauty Precision Nail Lacquer in Trillion Dollar Red | Full Size $5.95  Included!
My nail lacquer collection is a bit out of control, but I will always welcome a versatile red into my home. Lamoon is eco-friendly, 4 free and cruelty free and dries with a high shine.

Eyeko London Skinny Liquid Eyeliner in Black | Full Size $16
A fav of Alexa Chung, this skinny eyeliner glides with light pigmentation. I'm on the fence with my feelings.  It's easy to use, but doesn't wow me. I prefer creamy pencils to liquid.

Uberliss Hydrating Shampoo & Conditioner | Full Size $23.90 & $25.90
With  royal jelly, blueberry, apple, sugar cane, green tea, lemon peel and keratin, this dynamic duo smells amazing and nourishes your hair into a sleek, sexy mane.

Eslor Firming Collagen Day Cream | Full Size $85
Having sampled Elsor products before, I was thrilled to receive a deluxe sample of the collagen day cream. The hydrating power house contains ginseng extract, hydrolized  marine collagan, avocado, wheat germ and sesame oils. Formulated to apply twice a day, the cream promises to provide anti-aging results.

At long last.

It's been four months. I've been swamped at work, in life and seeking a balance. I managed to carve out several hours over a few days during Labor Day Weekend to sift through, select and edit my photos from our last two trips.

The El Yunque Rainforest in Puerto Rico is featured above. View all of my discoveries at Flickr.

Contessa Calf Hair






I'm. So. In. Love.  Jack Rogers has introduced calf-hair prints to their d'orsay style flats. I'm not much of a flats girl, but would make an exception for these lovely little stems. Details & purchase at Jack Rogers.  #wishlisted.

Assume Crash Positions

How about we kick off this short week with a little dark humor? The Assume Crash Positions passport cover made me laugh while wondering if I should be giggling. Purchase for your friend with similar appreciation for  this type of humor at heliotrope.
