Whatcha’ Wearin’ Wednesday, KT? Lorac Sheer Wash in Sheer Luck Pure Chance

My pilates teacher at Whole Body Method, KT, is cool. Like waaaaay cool. Like hangin’ out at music festivals, being a music supervisor and being able to flexibly squat on the floor for hours-cool.

Whatcha' Wearin', KT?

So when she showed up at a recent session with this oh-so-natural and just-enough-of-a-hint-of-a-color lip stain, I had to ask her: “KT, whatcha’ wearin’?”

The answer? Lorac Sheer Wash in Sheer Luck Pure Chance.

A gorgeous subtle fuchsia that looks like your natural lip color, it glides on effortlessly and stays on for hours. Just what my pretty, perfect and poignant pilates teacher needs! After all, she’s got me as a student so we do A LOT of yammerin’!

I’M “DAWNING”…Le Métier de Beauté Kaleidoscope Eye Kit in Chauvet Pont d’Arc

Right now, I can’t get enough of rich pigment on my eyes. Paired with a nude, glossy lip, smoky eyes are smoldering.

That’s why I’M “DAWNING”…Le Métier de Beauté Kaleidoscope Eye Kit in Chauvet Pont d’Arc ($95).

Le Métier de Beauté Kaleidoscope Eye Kit, Chauvet Pont d'Arc

While the price is on the luxury side, you will feel equally luxurious when you apply the shades in this kit. With a wide range of rich, pretty pigments, this kit will leave you looking and feeling as sexy as a silky nightgown.

Everyone will have a favorite shade but I’m partial to Crystalline – a silky matte, desert teal. I love pressing it into my crease giving me delicate definition, on my upper lid and smudged on the bottom lashline for a perfect smoky eye.

The other tones – which I love almost as much – are Umber (a satin-toned mauve), Ocher (a sandstone deep mustard) and Madder (a shimmering terracotta).

Fun note? Inspired by the Chauvet Cave Paintings in France – said to be the oldest in the world at 32,000 years old – and one of the most significant prehistoric art sites known to mankind which contains the earliest known cave paintings on the planet.

So make Le Métier de Beauté Kaleidoscope Eye Kit in Chauvet Pont d’Arc ($95) your palette of choice.

Makeup Monday: Tarte Aqualillies Collection

You know what I love? When the pretty packaging of a product only enhances the fact that there’s a really pretty product inside! That’s the case with the Tarte Aqualillies collection.

Inside the Tarte Aqualiilies Collection...


I wore the palette and gloss last week to an event and I felt as seductive as summer. The waterproof aqua liner (which I wore on top & bottom lashes) lasted and lasted. And the punchy coral blush wore on, as well.

And then there’s the gloss. Y’all, I’ll be honest…it made me feel both kissable AND sexy!
Too bad, there was no one for me to kiss at the girls-only event that I attended!

It’s beginning to feel a lot like Christmas…everywhere you go!

I don’t know about y’all but my sweet Mom has been calling me asking which delectable dishes of hers I would most love to enjoy for the holidays. Mmmmmm…

She gave me scrumptious choices – as her food is the only food that tempts me all the way down to my heart and tastebuds. Some of my options? Italian Cream Cake, German Chocolate Cake, Strawberry Cake, Bread Pudding, Christmas Pie, Orange Slice cake, Sausage Balls, Shrimp Ball, Pumpkin Bread, Robert Redford Delight, her signature Blueberry Crepes, her classic EggNog and many, many more. See why one of my favorite pastimes is cooking? I inherited it from the best of the best – my Mom!
