1. I saw this image posted to Laura’s Instagram account (laurakitty) and now I can’t wait to get my hands on the March issue of Elle UK. Clémence Poésy in Valentino, photographed by Pierre Bailly, and styled by Leith Clark. Beautiful! Incidentally, I got out of bed ten minutes later than I had wanted to the day this video was posted because I had to watch the whole thing: soft tonal makeup video by Lisa Eldridge.
2. Yesterday I heard that the March issue of Mojo is going to include a CD of Leonard Cohen covers, and I love this Bill Callahan cover of “So Long, Marianne.” I have listened to it approximately 8748273 times already. True story: for a short while I worked for a rare/fine book dealer who knew Leonard Cohen personally, and apparently one time over lunch my boss tried to convince him to give up the music and focus on writing poetry only. He told me this very sheepishly.
3. Sweet Alyson has just opened a print shop! I love this piece, The Pink Palace, and not only because it has a kitten in it (although I do love the kitten as well). I adore her quiet, calm aesthetic.
4. Pictures I ran through Instagram and never actually posted of my current daily makeup: Baby Lips lip balm, tons of blush (Sephora’s own in Healthy Rose), and the eyebrow powder I got from Eye Love. I am kind of obsessed with the Maybelline Baby Lips balms. There are probably lots of moisturizing lip products with a slight tint out there (including some with more natural ingredients) but I guess I am a sucker for inexpensive things in cute packaging. In the picture of me I’m wearing Cherry Me.
5. Pastel wonderland at the ASOS SS12 preview via one of my favourite blogs, Park & Cube.


6. A cute short/mood piece (!) called “After the Honeymoon” made by East Side Bride for Catbird. I would like all of those rings, please. Behind the scenes shot via ESB, taken by Cary Tijerina. Bonus little puppy alert! (Watch the video.)
7. Really loving Montréal designer Eve Gravel’s SS12 collection, especially the dark florals.
8. & 9. I can’t say that I am really that excited for Valentine’s Day, but I love an excuse for a good heart-shaped object, like these heart-shaped sunglasses from ASOS or these hilarious heart brass knuckles from Summerland.

I definitely encourage a Valentine’s day heart confetti attack/glitter gold mess just like the one we made last Friday!

  1. Thank you thank you thank you for the So Long, Marianne cover. By far my favorite Cohen song. I've almost bought those lip balms every time I see them, I don't know what's been stopping me.

    1. My favourites at the moment are "The Stranger Song" and "Hey, That's No Way to Say Good-bye," and from what I've heard, the covers are terrible (there's a preview here: http://soundcloud.com/mojomagazine/sets/the/). Super bummed about that. I actually prefer Bill Callahan's version of this one to the original.

  2. Is that last picture from the photo shoot you and Geoff did. It's lovely!

    And your hair is so long and beautiful. I wish I would have enough patience to grow hair... Oh well.

    1. Thanks! Yeah, I've been growing my hair for years and years and years, it feels like. I get a cut maybe twice a year.

  3. Love the Lisa Eldridge video- that Clarins blusher she used looks gorgeous.

  4. I've been late for sooo many things because I was watching Lisa Eldridge make up videos! I'm also now convinced that I need 23 new types of make up brush. Love Catbird too! x

    1. I feel like when I was learning to apply makeup a vast quantity of fancy brushes wasn't necessary! Now I feel like my brush collection is seriously inadequate. I always use my fingers anyhow.

  7. looove eve gravel. her work is always so perfectly 'on' - it's always what you want to wear, and it always fits the way you want it to fit. i used to work at a store that carried her clothes and MAN was it hard for me to not buy everything we ordered from her! her new collection is reminding me of thelma+louise, for some reason. (maybe it was the 'road regrets' name?)

    1. Oh, nice! I've never worn any of her pieces before, but they really are lovely.

  8. What in the world. I went to two Targets, a Rite-Aid, and a Walgreens today in search of some Baby Lips. Didn't think it would be this hard to find! Strangely, this kinda makes me want it more...

    1. Yeah, it seems to be popular! I was too embarrassed to admit it up there but I actually bought each balm I have at a different drug store. I'd go to one and they would just have the cherry, or just the grape, or just the peach! So crazy.

  10. I have always been afraid of makeup because no one ever showed me how to wear it without looking clown-like, and Lisa Eldridge has practically revolutionized my understanding of the stuff. The lip color in that video is to die for! Completely inspired me to learn "how to do" my makeup now. Thanks for the boost.

    1. She is amazing! I could watch her videos all day. She has some looks that are a bit much for me, but if you look for her no-makeup makeup types of videos, some good tidbits there.

  11. Such loveliness you've collected here once again. I adore Bill Callahan - he's one of my favourite artists ... such beautiful music, and yes ... I love that cover of “So Long, Marianne" too. Exquisite.

    1. Thanks! Those pictures were really fun to take. There are some at the end of the continuous shooting session where the model is just laughing, and it's so cute!

  16. I've also been wearing Maybelline Baby Lips in Cherry Me. I just love the sheer red lip look right now! And the moisturizing factor is an added bonus.

  20. i am OBSESSED with baby lips... as someone who has naturally bright pink lips (it's a curse), the peach kiss makes me happier than anything, but i adore the pink one on others.... what a great invention.
    i stocked up on $2.99 tubes while in the US.
