Our GTO that has had electrical issues for the last few years is now up and running again, just in time for summer!

Like many of us, I’m currently in a liminal space between spring and summer, between turning in semester grades and thinking about vacation, between working at fever pitch and knowing I need to force myself to relax!

Reflective of this diverse array of elements, today’s post includes a video discussing late spring and early summer favorites, thoughts on life lately and some suggestions for the abundance of sales occurring over the next few days.

Kindly scroll on for the video, details, swatches and sales I’m shopping…

A plethora of things have been going on as of late and I’ll do my best to detail the highlights! After wrapping 7 college classes, I’m now preparing to teach just two sections of online public speaking for the summer; I’m excited to meet some new students and help them continue to develop their authentic voices. Beauty events have been in full force with lots of trips into the city to celebrate new launches–Tower 28, Grande Cosmetics, Sisley-Paris, Lawless, Parfums de Marly and many more–and I always make sure to document the experience on my Instagram page.

I have some travel lined up (the beach! the desert!) and, of course, will take some opportunities to photograph new beauty in fresh locales that I’m visiting. Joey Elle is turning 5 (how is this so?!) and we are also welcoming a new baby cousin into our lives this summer via my brother and sister-in-law.

I have a few new collaborations in the works including a full face kit, a collab product type I’ve never done before and something else major and very personal in the works (too soon to share details but, God willing, I’m on the path to making it happen). In the meanwhile, my Au Naturale Trenchcoat + LA duo (a life necessity) and Nude Envie Lipstick Joey (use BP15 for 15% off site wide, excluding new collections) are still available and finding their way into hearts and onto lips daily. So truly grateful!
