Clarins Joli Rouge Review

Color (Cinnamon) swatch from L to R: 
Classic Joli Rouge for Satin finish; Joli Rouge Brilliant for Shiny & Sheer finish; Joli Rouge Velvet for Matte

On Whit: Clarins Joli Rouge for Satin Finish in Cinnamon

Clarins recently launched 20 new shades and 3 finishes of their Joli Rouge lippies! How exciting --we've already been long time fans of Clarins Joli Rouge. As you can tell from the swatch, the finishes are very appropriately named!

What we love about them:
1) they're long-lasting (up to 6 hrs!)
2) they're very moisturizing

Moisturizing lipsticks are a must because I'm prone to having chapped lips. On application, they feel like chapstick. Just like butter!

It's been a while and it feels so good to be blogging again! After committing to a career change about a year ago, my life is finally "normal again".  I'm getting back into the routine of things with my new job and new dog. I'm a dog mom! You're never going to guess what dog I adopted...

Ruffled Sleeves

On Mallory: Club Monaco Sancerie Sweater - on sale for $30 (!!) when you get extra 40% off, Chloé Nile Minaudiere in Airy Gray (color sold out), Levi's Wedgie Jean (hate the name tbh),  ShopAkira Satin Bow Flats (old, similar linked below)

True story: Whitney and I ordered this same sweater, but Whit said it was too crazy for her lol. Me, I have already worn it several times 🤷🏻‍♀️.  Plus, you can't beat Club Monaco for $30!

In other life news, it has been hard to keep the blog up with work. It still is hard to adjust to that start-up life I guess. That, and I have been lucky to be able to be traveling a lot this summer! I'll be posting about my Japan trip shortly :)

The Perfect Linen Dress

On Mal: Lack Of Color Ivory Rancher Hat, Karen Walker Harvest Sunglasses, Gap Denim Jacket, Urban Outfitters UO Amber Button-Down Linen Midi Dress, vintage basket, Zara Gold Strap Sandals (old)

I impulse-bought this dress when Urban had sale on dresses, and I am so glad I did. I love the buttons, the shape is flattering, and the back is elastic so you can have a hefty lunch and not feel pinched!

Dressed up Denim at Hall Wines

A couple weeks ago, we got invited by Hall Wines to celebrate the launch of their new brand, BACA zinfandel. We are never ones to turn down the chance to eat and drink, but having been to Hall before on our own, we knew we def wanted to go back. Gotta love that light saber bunny. And we actually liked all the wines we tried (but Cat's Cradle is the best).

We also used the event as an excuse to celebrate our new jobs! We have both been busy getting up to speed in our new roles (Whit is now a software engineer, and I'm now a product designer) so haven't had as much time to hang out, or blog for that matter.  We are hoping to fix that soon, though! We also post much more often on Insta and on Insta stories if you are ever curious what we are up to.

Hey all, we're alive! There has been a long radio silence on the blog as Whit and I job hunt. I finished my client projects about 2 weeks ago and after pulling together my portfolio. This week, I am OFFICIALLY starting to look for a full-time product design position!

We are trying to get back into the swing of updating regularly, at the very least over on Instagram!
