Brights & Lights

Today the sun is shining and spring really feels like it's in the air. The past few days have left Phoenix in an overcast, breezy kind of state, but this morning the sun was shining ever so brightly through my windows and there isn't a cloud in the sky. I'm pretty sure this mean that today calls for a little spring shopping date (because my brights and lights pieces of my wardrobe need an update), and maybe a trip to Sprinkles Cupcakes for that brown sugar praline cupcake I spotted on their Instagram! YUM!

Knowing that it's about time to set aside my more fall/winter appropriate lipstick colors in exchange for some more spring/summer shades, I've been really into finding the perfect coral, pink, and orangey lip colors that will best suit my skin tone and my ever dry lips. I've been getting a lot of wear out of my Radiant Cosmetics' moisturizing lipstick in Reef lately, and really love the color payoff and how nice it leaves my lips feeling. I also haven't left home without a Revlon lip butter in my bag recently (loving the color Juicy Papaya currently), and a little NYX blush on my cheeks. What can I say, I've really turned into a true makeup gal over this past year!

I feel like I can't leave this blog post without saying how much I adore these Coco sandals from Blowfish Shoes. I'm totally a "gladiator" sandal type of gal, and these little gems also speak to my obsession with quality and comfy sandals (best of both words!). Blowfish Shoes is also having a 15% off everything sale through 3/31 with the code EASTER! Can't beat that!
