Isn’t this makeup just beautiful? Make-up artist and Creative Makeup Director for Estée Lauder, Tom Pecheux went for loads of black mascara, thick eyeliner and strong brows at Elie Saab’s fall 2014 show. Hair stylist Luigi Murenu used a selection of Kérastase products, including Mousse Bouffante to create thick, glossy locks that were meant to be “reminiscent of horses’ manes."

Distressed denim, especially distressed boyfriend jeans are all over the place lately and it looks like they are going to be one of Spring/Summer’s biggest trends. Piperlime has a great collection going right now at various price points. These four are some of my favorites out of the lot. Happy Monday.

Our little overnighter for mom’s birthday in Half Moon Bay is now a full week behind us, but it sure was lovely. We spent the majority of our time having cocktails and snacks around the fire pit on our patio (and the fire pit overlooking the bluff). We like our fire pits obviously. We did manage to pull ourselves together enough for a great dinner at Pasta Moon, but we cancelled our breakfast reservations the next morning and opted to stay in and have room service so we could enjoy the ocean breeze from our patio with a basket of pastries and a pot of coffee. On our way out of Half Moon Bay, we stopped at Sam’s Chowder House and stuffed ourselves with chowder, calamari and lobster rolls, which is fitting because after all that face-stuffing I now resemble a soft little lobster roll.
I hope this weekend treats you all well. If you’re looking for something to do, Lucy Restaurant is offering a Winter Menu and Wine Pairing Class tomorrow. The Napa Valley Museum is also holding their annual gala tomorrow night with some delicious wines to be poured, and silent auction items for bid, including some artwork that is entirely out of my price range by Matisse and Chagall. Tickets for the reception start at $60. For something a bit more low-key Back Room Wines is hosting a drop in tasting tonight featuring a selection of sips from Santa Barbara. Have a good one.

Lonny Mag recently highlighted a home decor Etsy shop that I’m following, Tique Studio. Though the shop collection focuses on only a few vintage pieces at a time, they are really well curated and unique gems found from combing through flea markets and estate sales. If you’re a fan of Tique you’ll also want to check out Mod Rendition and Savvy Vintage, two of my other favorites places to hunt for distinctive pieces for the home.

My taste in jewelry is pretty eclectic. Big statement pieces, jewels, or minimal bands and wraps. I love ‘em all. A friend introduced me to Another Feather a few weeks ago and I’ve been admiring jewelry maker Hannah Ferrara’s designs ever since.

In honor of Fat Tuesday, I wanted to post photos of this crazy gorgeous home located smack in the middle of the French Quarter. Designed by John Locke and photographed by Lonny Mag, this is about as glamorous as it gets and looks like NOLA perfection to me.

These models are already stone-cold stunnas, but make-up artist Pat McGrath took things to a new level at the Versace show in Milan. The look is definitely reminiscent of old Hollywood glamour with loads of liquid liner and two sets of false lashes per model and it’s a great inspiration for make-up for a special event or evening out. Just wish I could copy it myself; half the time I can barely do my own make-up without stabbing myself with a mascara wand. Check out some of the scenes backstage from the Versace show, and also take a look at this article for some of her make-up tips, like being flawless in photos by using matte foundation instead of HD foundations (which actually emphasize imperfections when the flash goes off rather than covering them).
