Just like any admirer of style, a girl has to keep up to date with all of her favorite blogs. Any time I get new interns into the office, I always make sure that they know about Google Reader, since that is what one of my past internship bosses did for me. Everyday at work I make sure that I keep up with the content that is being updated on some of my favorite national and local blogs.
The Target x Neiman Marcus Holiday Collection I have been waiting for December 1st since I moved 1.5 blocks away from my local Target. The announcement that the CFDA was going to be releasing 24 members’ lines at Target was the jingle my pocketbook had been waiting for. MTV Style highlights their five favorite items that they feel everyone should swipe with the debut NM collection. If I didn’t already have a bicycle, I would absolutely go for the Alice + Olivia Bike that they have listed. Instead, the Band of Horses beanies are perfect for me and my best friend K.
Do French Girls Really Do Beauty Better? C’est vrai! A fun fact about getting to know me is that I come from a long lineage of French women. Though I used to stare at all of the beauty regimens my mother (French) and Abuelita (Spanish grandmother, married a frenchman) did and I thought their tedious tasks regarding their skin was way too long, they are in fact, doing it right! From my family members, to my dear friend Aude in Paris and meeting Garance Doré over the weekend, French women know what they are talking about when it comes to beauty. They have a simple elegance about how they look, they care about the piece and how it makes them feel versus the label. This article by Refinery 29 highlights three French women and their guide to beauty.
