Today marks my last official week of "school year teaching" and I am so excited about my upcoming Beauty Professor blog posts!
Here is a quick preview of topics on the imminent horizon...
|Above: This bag is large enough to fit a plethora of items for poolside lounging...water bottle, sunscreen, makeup, sunglasses, extra shirt and visor; it's utterly cavernous.|
First, I will be using this divine bag (above...procured from the latest Neiman Marcus beauty event, Camp Gorgeous) to tote around my pool essentials when I head to Tucson next week. I will be covering a my beauty essentials packing list, which, in this case, will be tailored to inordinately hot and dry weather.
|Above: My new Madison Harding x Lust for Life collaboration Olivia booties...so immediately comfortable that they didn't even need to be broken in!|
Next, I will be talking about a the summer shoe shopping I've been imbibing in as of late. A little Madison Harding, a pinch of Vince Camuto, a lot of Jeffery Campbell...no, it's not makeup, but it does make for amusing conversation, no?!
|Above: Olivia of the style blog, Lust for Life and me at a recent Mark Jacobs event...I have had Olivia as a student at the college and am proud of her boot endeavor!|
|Above: MAC All About Orange...what did YOU pick up from the collection?|
Following, will be an exploration of the temporary insanity that washed over me the day I happened to be at Nordstrom to pick up shoes and a gift for a co-worker and walked out with three peachy coral MAC lipsticks and two blushes (not to mention a lipstick and blush for my mom). More on this All About Orange debacle soon...

|Above: Sample jars, pre-swatching...I almost hated to sully their pristine state by opening them!|
|Above: Swatch City...and a bit of MAC Flamingo on the lips.|
Also, I by request, I have plans to discuss the brushes (including the quintessential non-brush, the Beauty Blender!) I have been using lately as well as providing an overview of how to determine your skin tone to find your perfect foundation match...so much to do (including a bevy of by-request videos for my YouTube channel!), and a whole summer in which to make it a reality!
What's new with you this week? Thoughts? New purchases? Summer plans?
