Smart, Cute School Supplies

Cute school supplies

Yes, I’ve outgrown the days when I would need to buy crayons and protractors for school. Maybe it’s nostalgia, but I’m currently obsessing over cute school supplies and stationary and functional, colorful planners top my list.

In fact, I just purchased the Emily Ley 2015 Simplified Planner Daily Edition ($58 US). I’m so excited to use it next January! I’ve heard rave reviews from others about its clean but engaging design. Do you have any favorite planners that I should know about?

Also on my list: Kate Spade Notebooks ($12 US), for their adorable print design, and Kate Spade Retro Specs Pencil Pouch Set ($28 US), because I’m really a nerd on the inside.

What are some paper goods brands you’re obsessed with?

Dressed Up Metallic Nails

Metallic Nails

Every year Fall comes around, and every year it’s no surprise that luxurious metallic colors seize the spotlight. Not that I’m complaining. Rich shimmery antique shades feel so appropriate and are almost as easy to match with as neutrals.

With my favorite copper eyeliner in hand and gold-laced highlighters dusted on my cheeks, I also welcomed two new nail colors into my wardrobe for the season.



Getting Organized with Orla Kiely for Target

Orla Kiely Garden Double Zip Train Case

There’s nothing like a little organization for getting back into the swing of the school year. Throwing out my old makeup bag and replacing it with a new case instantly helped me think about streamlining all the products in there.

Side Note: I also just purchased the Emily Ley Daily Simplified Calendar, which I’m really excited to start using. Going back to makeup cases, I just had to let you know about the cutest collaboration between Orla Kiely and Target.



Run Don’t Walk to Get Your Hands on the New NARS Audacious Lipstick

NARS Audacious Lipstick

Sure we get excited when new colors launch, but even more exciting is when a whole new product is released. This season the latest one to anticipate is the NARS Audacious Lipstick ($32 US).

Touted as a “modern lipstick,” the new formula comes in 40 rich colors that satisfy every lip color wish list. It truly is a step towards luxury and one that I’m obsessing over.



Waterproof and Pretty in Purple with Cargo Cosmetics

Cargo Swimmables Eye Pencil Pfeiffer Beach

We all know how complicated it can get to wear colorful eyeshadow successfully. When you’re blending multiple shades together, it’s not uncommon to use five different eyeshadows for one look.

Simplifying the process, colored eye pencils create almost the same pop of color but with a lot less effort.
