Tweaking my makeup collection has been a priority lately. I've tried lots of items from different brands, and am really discovering what I like and don't like. I'm trying my best to get rid of things I'm not particularly fond of and don't use, and really wanted to introduce some more luxurious items into my collection. These palettes were at the top of my list.

After months of indecisiveness I finally purchased two Guerlain Ecrin 6 Couleurs Eyeshadow Palettes in Rue des Francs-Bourgeois and Champs-Elysees. When I'd heard about an upcoming 20% off promotion from Sephora, I knew I had to pull the trigger and since I couldn't decide which I liked better, I got both. 

I've had them for weeks, but haven't used them yet, mainly because I wanted to photograph them first, but also because they're so pretty and I'm not quite ready to dig in yet and mess them up. These palettes are absolutely gorgeous, the packaging is stunning and the quality is unquestionable.

Meet 'Krisi', my gorgeous new cropped moto jacket from Club Monaco. When I first saw this collection I knew that I had to have this piece. It's just so pretty --- the fur trimmed collar, the sherpa lining, the dark gray twill shell. I waited this one out for months and finally scored it for 52% off of the original price; it was the last one available at the store and was in my size, a.k.a. totally meant to be!

The jacket is available for purchase here.

I went a little overboard at the NARs counter at Lord & Taylor a few weeks ago and this palette was definitely the belle of the ball. It's the Hanamichi eyeshadow palette, part of the NARs Kabuki collection, which features four shadows in a mirrored compact and a beautiful mini brush. I'd seen it online and was intrigued, but when I saw it in person I knew almost immediately that it'd be going home with me.

Get yours here.

linens 'n things

I picked up a few awesome pieces this weekend, including an amazing linen tank from Club Monaco that I'd been eyeing for a while, a super soft draped top from J. Crew and an amazing necklace from Bloomingdales.

on the prowl

Despite a vow to myself to not entertain purchasing another shoe with a heel over 4", I knew as soon as I saw these gloriously gaudy and over the top skyscraping leopard platform booties that they'd be mine. After cyberstalking for months, they finally went on sale for 50% off. I tried them on in store and the deal was done.

Because they aren't ridiculous enough, I added some hot pink laces --- and I love them!!!
