Everyday Essentials

One old, one new...
I've been sporting these two items every day for the past 5 days or so, and I couldn't be happier.

This Lisa Taubes 36" sterling silver necklace has been taken out of the jewelry box and is back into high rotation. I've owned this for about a year and a half now and I seem to love it more in the summer because the light silver just plays off the sunlight a bit more and makes any plain old white t-shirt of blouse look more refined.

Next up is my newest Chanel Rouge Coco Shine in #48 "Evasion". A light peachy pink shade, more opaque than the famous #54 "Boy" and the perfect companion to a soft brown smoky eye:

When applied, it tends to get a bit of a pink tinge to it, and I just love the way Chanel manages to incorporate soft, delicate shimmer particles in their Rouge Coco Shine lipsticks which enhances their glossiness.

What'e been on heavy rotation for you so far?


  1. I've been using my Butterfly Flower body mist from Bath & Body Works non-stop for the past two weeks. It's so refreshing in this heat and is lighter than any perfume I own.

    Happy Friday!

  3. The Lisa Taubes is to die for!! Surprisingly I have never tried any of the Rouge coco lipsticks yet, but this swatch looks so appealing!!

    For me the summer months always mean MACs eyeshadow in Humid, and any type of turquoise shadow too :)Jewelry is always a must too!

  4. Orange tinted lipstick/gloss! I thought it would look extra orange on my olive skin, but instead it pops so beautifully, even my boyfriend loves it!

    I have the OCC Lip Tar in Cha Cha, MAC's lipstick in Sea Sheer, and Annabelle's le gloss stick lipstick in 209.

  5. I have Evasion and I find myself grabbing for it almost everyday! That and I've been reaching for Satin Taupe e/s a lot lately as well!

  6. Love both of yours.

    For me, it's the Lisa Taubes 5ft. gold--always have it on, NYX gloss in smokey look, and NARS Laguna :)

  7. The lipstick is gorgeous :) Wish I had the same one!

  9. I love these posts, simple, chic, yet inspiring :)

    Lately my everyday essentials have been Aloe Sun BB cream, tinted lip balm, mascara, and my hair piled up in a bun, clothes and jewellery wise I'm getting 'round in lounge or yoga pants (I'm currently fat & pregnant) lol

  10. love both of these esp the lipstick, will add to my long wish list lol

  11. That color is so lovely and the perfect pinky-peach color that would be wonderful for my wedding next year...might have to try this out! Thanks for sharing!
