My Secret Weapon


My secret weapon in the summer heat is foundation primer.
Without it your makeup could melt down your face...not a good look.

Laura Mercier Primer has been my go-to for years, after I tried a sample at Sephora.
It goes on so smoothly and my makeup stays put all day. No touchups needed.

Last week I had the opportunity to see the samples at the Runway Workshop. 
The details are amazing in person. My co-workers and I were drooling over the upcoming delivery.
Above are a few of the gush-worthy dresses my team is planning to buy for retail stores. 

Ladies, start saving now - the collection is to die for!

Home Sweet Home



This weekend marked a huge step for me...I signed a lease for my first big girl apartment!
An adorable studio inside this 1920's Spanish-style building will be my new home next month. 
Stay tuned for posts on my furniture finds & decorating tips after the big move.

If your weekend plans are anything like mine, 
that means relaxing on the beach is a definite destination.  
One of my must haves for days spent in the sun is a 
bright beach bag

I found a few adorable options that are the 
perfect size to carry all the essentials.

Don't forget to toss sunscreen and a cute colorful towel
 into your beach bag this summer!

Creative Outlet Makeover

You may have noticed a completely new design when you visited Creative Outlet today. 
I figured after over a year of blogging, it was due for a facelift. 
What do you think of the new look?

Fave Summer Color: Tangerine Tango





Pantone's 2012 Color of the Year is the hottest hue on the runway.
Add a bold punch to your wardrobe this summer with a flirty sundress
or an orange-red nail polish, such as OPI's "Tasmanian Devil Made Me Do It."
