Closet Dreams

Closet Dreams, real estate, compass, home decor

When we were looking at homes in 2012, everything seemed enormous coming from 6 years spent in tiny New York City apartments. As we narrowed our list and began focusing in, details became the deciding factor in the decision making process. Having a space I could finally house all my clothing was a huge treat in my post college, post law school life. I spent months flipping through online catalogs and real estate sites looking for ideas. If Compass had existed back then, life would have been easier for us. You can browse be neighborhood, and instantly see images of apartments within your criteria, whether you want to rent, buy or even sell. When its time to list the house and head back into the City, this will be my first stop.

Refresh with Clinique

Refresh with Clinique, makeup ideas, lipstick swatches, lipstick shades, beauty

Clinique has always been among my favorite beauty brands. Their new formulas and shades have given me even more reason to rush to Nordstrom for a fall makeup refresh! The Color Pop is much more saturated than other formulas, and reminds me of the Nars Audacious line. I like 'beige' to best.

Swatch It: Lipsticks

I am forever searching for the perfect everyday lip color. Each time I take a lunch trip to Bloomies, I browse the Bobbi Brown, Chanel, mac and Clinique counters, pulling the same rosy-hued, nude colors each time. I've realized that i actually already own the perfect colors for day to day office, meetings, lunches and dinners. So rather than searching, I'm just going to buy multiples of my favorites picks.

From top to bottom, the shades above are Clinique's Beauty (long last soft shine formula), Mac's Shanghai Spice (cremesheen), Mac's Modesty (cemesheen) and Macs Brave (satin). For a bruntee with fair to light skin and hazel green eyes like me, these shades are perfect everyday colors for all seasons. These formulas wear decently long, are soft to apply, and impart some subtle sheen but are not glossy. if youre on the hunt, I highly recommend these. What are your go-to lip picks?
