Pink Tweed and Beauty Buys

With the weather cooling down, I've been reaching for my tweed jackets again. This pink one from White House Black Market is my absolute favorite - it might be cliched, but I just feel happier when I'm wearing pink!

And speaking of pink items - I'm loving my new pink travel Clarisonic Mia. During my acne outbreak, I switched back to nightly sonic cleansing (hot washcloths were too irritating for my inflamed skin). I'm glad I now have a mini Clarisonic to take with me on weekend trips. I love that it comes with a hard plastic cover - so it doesn't accidentally get switched on in transit!

I've also picked up some other products - they're mainly for the lips!
  • I FINALLY purchased Bobbi Brown's Sandwash Pink (it's the shade Kate wore on her wedding day). It's the perfect brownish pink - and looks lovely paired with Spice lipliner. 
  • NARS Orgasm lipgloss is a gorgeous corally-gold that would look pretty on nearly everyone. I used my Sephora points to get this mini version - but I plan on buying the full-size one too! 
  • If you're a fan of the Sephora lipstains - you HAVE to try the Stila All-Day Liquid Lipstick - I own both and prefer Stila because it does not transfer or budge from your lips at all!

  • For ELF products in Canada - visit Old Navy - they sell a limited selection near checkout. I picked up this sweet-smelling lip exfoliator because it's an inexpensive and easy way to prep your lips for long-wearing lip colors.
  • On my London trip, I purchased a Sleek Contouring & Blush palette. Sleek is a UK drugstore brand with a reputation for silky formulations and strong pigmentation - so I thought it would be a good option to experiment with. Also, the colors are so pretty and I knew the kit could pull double duty as eyeshadow!
What is your favorite lip product at the moment?

DISCLAIMER: The Clarisonic and Stila Lipstick were gifted to me - but I'm featuring them because I truly love them! 

Linking up with More Pieces of Me and Sincerely Jenna Marie 


  1. You look pretty in pink! I love the tweed jacket paired with the distressed jeans. It's a fun twist on classic and girly with a bit of modern edge.

    My favorite lip products right now (plural lol) are: the lip crayons that glo minerals sent to me, the Nars birthday perk lip crayons, and the nyx butter glosses. All so good!

    1. Thanks Noelle - I actually have my eye on another WHBM tweed jacket - I think they're such classics that hopefully I can wear them for a long time. I don't think I've tried the NYX butter glosses - but I do like the NARS Sephora/bday pencils!

  2. I absolutely love that pink jacket of yours! I still remember when you first purchased it at WHBM. It looks great paired with the Barcelona cami! I think that NARS lipgloss might be my next cosmetic purchase splurge. What a gorgeous color!

    1. You'll love the NARS lipgloss - it's just such a beautiful color! And the main reason I purchased the Barcelona cami was because I saw from your/Noelle/Caryl's outfit pics that it was the perfect layering piece ;-)

  3. I love NARS lip products! They go on so smoothly, and I love a good gloss.

    I see ELF a lot at Winners, didn't know that Old Navy sold it to...just bought a house so I haven't been out shopping for me lately lol!

    1. Yes - I've seen ELF at Winners too - it's a shame that their stock isn't consistent though - ELF definitely need an outlet that sells their full range here for us ;-)

  4. love the jacket! so beautiful!

  5. Love that pink jacket on you! Totally elevates the look. xx

    1. Thanks Audrey - it's definitely a fun layering piece!

  6. Really loving that tweed jacket! You just reminded me that I need to get out my Clarisonic case when I travel. I always forget about it!!

    1. Thanks Darcy! I've never had a case for any of my other Clarisonics - so excited that this version came with one ;-)

  7. Love that blazer.. I've always been a huge fan of tweed :)
