Drift + spring makeup picks + update

Oh heeeey.

A lot has changed in my life recently. None of it has been easy, but some parts are wonderful. I have a lot of exciting plans in motion for later this year, many of which I will document on this blog if all goes well.

But for now…..spring. Houston has been such a little delight this season that I almost forgot that it will feel like a damn oven in a few short weeks. I’m not ready for the humidity. I’m not ready for the sweating. I’m not ready to look like a bowl of refried beans.







Dress: Kensie
Cardigan: Target
Flats: Jeffrey Campbell
Earrings: Forever 21

All of the white.

Spring has been nice to my skin, besides the couple of stress pimples I woke up to this morning. I’ve been using a new BB cream recommended by one of my colleagues, and there is nothing I rather slather on my face now.


From left to right: Tarte Tinted BB Cream, Atelier Cologne in Cedrat Enivrant, MAC Lipstick in Creme Cup and Make Up For Ever Artist Liner in M-10

I saw this cologne in a “free stuff” box at work, and liked the lime, masculine scent. I now smell like a clean man sipping a margarita in Cancún. Aw yes.

As for makeup, I’m totally digging this eyeliner I picked up while I was in New York last week. It’s a great alternative to NARS Via Veneto, and smudges pretty well with a short tapered brush. MAC’s Creme Cup is the perfect nude/pink lip for these hotter days.

So whaaaat, New York? Yes. I was totally there last week. Not only did I get to see a couple of awesome people, I freaking tried oysters for the first time and fell. in. love. Now it’s all I want. I can’t believe I have wasted 25 years of my life not eating oysters. I also had Japanese inspired Mexican food that was as weird and delicious as it sounds.



I also got super touristy and went to the top of the Empire State Building at night. It was so so cold but the view was incredible. My dumb ass self bought express tickets when lines weren’t even that bad, so if you ever go at night, just buy the cheapest ticket and go past midnight.


And of course, I went across the Brooklyn Bridge to Grimaldi’s, which is probably one of my favorite things to do in New York.


And then last night I had the absolute pleasure of having a Little Black Dress themed dinner with a few fellow Houston Fashion Bloggers. I love meeting other bloggers, and am always so amazed by their work ethic and drive.

Phew. Alright.

  • Oh, this was such a wonderful post! Both your outfits were beautiful, the white dress and the black one. New York! So exciting. I love the photo of NY at night with all the lights and I could just imagine going up to the top of the Empire State building and looking down at the flashing colors! Japanese inspired Mexican food sounds so wild, but I bet it’s delicious. I could do without the oysters HaHa!
