Best Of

Happy Tuesday!  Here’s what I’m loving this week:



City Gold White Gold Shadow and Highlight Mousse– I find having to apply eye shadow with a brush a total chore, so I like that I can apply this with my finger (although you probably are supposed to use a brush, but I’m a rule breaker).  This eye shadow is really light and fluffy so it’s fun to apply.  I found it through my Ipsy subscription.  (I love a good subscription, I get Birchbox as well.)

Flavor Paper Wallpaper– Funky, fun wallpaper.  Check them out.

Iced Coffee– I use The Pioneer Woman’s recipe, except I use espresso beans to make it a latte.  They have been my lifeblood this summer.  I also half the recipe and use 1/2 pound of beans and 8 quarts to make it a little less unwieldy to make (more wieldy?).

Pixi Flawless Beauty Primer– Another Ipsy find.  It gives your skin a shimmery glow.  Two thumbs up.

Madewell Transport Tote– I do not own this, but I would like to.  Love a good tote.

That’s all for this week.  Check out my latest post on The DC Ladies and say hi on Twitter.  Have a good one!

With Kimura wallpaper from Walnut Wallpaper on the wall behind the headboard:


The Master Bedrooom should evoke a feeling of romance.  Avoid pictures of your kids staring at you while you are in bed.  I like Antra from Ikea:


Site of the Week: Walnut Wallpaper

This great online Wallpaper store was featured in this month’s Domino Magazine.

Walnut Wallpaper has some awesome prints.  I especially love:




A great idea for wallpaper is to use it on the inside of bookcases, instead of having a plain white back- it will bring a little character and color into the space!
