REVIEW & SWATCHES | Burberry Full Kisses


If there was ever a lipstick that I want to tell everyone "You've GOT to try this" it's this one. Trust me, there are plenty of lipstick formulas that come across my desk but very few I am as excited about sharing as Burberry's Full Kisses line which was sent to me as part of my partnership with Burberry. (SALE ALERT: Sephora's annual VIB sale runs this weekend from Nov 11-14 for 20% off, which these lipsticks are a part of, using code 20VIB.)

From opacity to ease of application to hydrating feel, it ticks off plenty of boxes as a favorite go-to lippy.



The packaging has a reflective gunmetal tube which twists the product up from the bottom. There is a good portion of the lipstick which is always visible so it's wise to take care when opening the cap not to scrape the product. I found the tip shape particularly interesting because it's almost like the tip of a highlighter which makes it extremely application-friendly since you can see where the lipstick edge is without any fancy arm contortioning.


I was sent three shades: Rose Apricot No. 521, Lilac No. 541, and Rosewood No. 533. All are a modern, glossy formula without any glitters or shimmers. 

Rose Apricot No. 521 is a pastel creamsicle shade. Because it's quite bold, I would recommend it for those with lighter skintones for everyday wear but it is still very pretty as a statement lipstick. It translates gorgeously in photos as well.


You guys probably already know what a fan of purple lip products I am so Lilac No. 541 is totally up my alley. Particularly in the Fall time, it's a great pop of color since it matches both smokey and neutral eyes and it's especially pretty on those with yellow undertones.


You know how I love to save the best for last and Rosewood No. 533 is it! I bet you thought it would be Lilac which is what I assumed, but believe it or not this shade is even better! If there's one kind of lipstick I can't live without it is the holy grail MLBB (my lips but better) and I have officially found my new favorite. 

This slightly warm coral-rose brightens my whole complexion and looks natural yet sophisticated. Yes it's not as exciting in photos, but trust me, this baby made me do a little happy dance as soon as it was on. A well-used product is a well-loved one. :)


You can find the entire Burberry Full Kisses line now at Sephora and Burberry for $30 apiece.

If you are stocking up on a few favorites or gifts during the VIB sale, I highly recommend trying it out especially Rosewood No. 533 for an opaque, hydrating MLBB which will work across many seasons and skintones.

Can I wear gold & silver jewelry together?

Stitch Fix

The best thing about fashion? There are no rules. We don’t know who said “no” to mixing metals, but we like to dance to the beat of our own drum, especially since we look good doing it.

Here’s how to mix metals like a true mixing master.

How to Wear Statement Jewelry

FIND AN ANCHOR PIECE

Start with a mixed-metal piece of jewelry and half the work is already done. Add two to three more pieces that incorporate the same metals for an intentional look.

STICK WITH THE SAME AESTHETIC 

When mixing metals, opt for jewelry in the same stylistic realm to create a cohesive look. For example, if you normally wear gold bangles, swap a couple of them for similarly-sized silver bangles.

HIGHLIGHT A UNIFYING COLOR 

Combine different-metaled pieces featuring the same accent color—the accent color acts as a medium, tying it all together. Try it out with a gold-and-turquoise necklace coupled with a silver-and-turquoise bracelet. 

Mixing metals goes beyond jewelry. Extend these tips to all your accessories and you’ll never have to worry about matching your shoes to the hardware on your bag again!

Family Beach Portraits for the Holidays

This past month my parents came out to visit us for about 10 days. They live on the East Coast so it’s always VERY special to have them spend time with us, my sister’s family, and most importantly all the little grandkids. I mentioned to my Dad that I would love to organize some family photos when they were in town since it’s not often we are all together and he instantly said he was excited. My dear friend Felicia who shoots all of our special family moments came to meet us in Laguna Beach at sunset. It’s great because my sister, husband, and their 2 kids know Felicia as well so there is a nice comfort level there.

I joked with my Sister before the shoot that I had to plan all the kids outfits because her kids are older and independent and love to dress themselves. I figured if it was left up to them, they might show up in a Spiderman hoodie which is normally adorable but I wanted to try to curate the photos a bit so thankfully she indulged me and let me dress them. Well, I should say thankfully Jacob and Xander (my nephews) let me dress them! (these are the sweaters they wore) Everyone pretty much wore blues or neutrals. This way we would blend together without being super matchy matchy and blend in well with the beach scenery.

This golden hour was spend playing in the sand and following the kids around. I just love seeing Otis with his cousins. They all love to play together and I could just cry (happy tears) watching them hold hands on the sand together. Was particularly special getting these photos of all the grandkids and my parents. The last photo of Otis and my parents and his big smile!!! But seriously, who is having more fun? My Dad or Otis? I can’t even decide what photo of frame because I love them all. Also, how much do you love the photo of Lola jumping up to kiss Otis. HEART MELT.

HOW TO TAKE GREAT BEACH FAMILY PORTRAITS

LEAVE YOUR SHOES IN THE CAR

I know you matched your outfit perfectly with your shoes, but trust me, leave your shoes in your car. Don’t risk getting them wet in the water. My whole families shoes got soaked. Except for Blake, Otis and I because we weren’t wearing any.

BEAT THE CROWDS, TAKE PHOTOS ON A WEEKDAY

I know it might not be possible to take photos on a weekday depending on your families work schedules, but if you can, PLEASE schedule your photoshoot on a weekend. When we took our photos, we went on a Saturday not thinking how crowded it would be. There was literally at least 5 other (probably more) photoshoots going on at the same beach we were at. Basically everyone was taking their family portraits for their holiday cards this weekend. If a weekday isn’t an option, try for a Sunday night. Hopefully everyone will be prepping for the new week and not on the beach for a photoshoot.

SHOW UP ON TIME

Make sure you google Sunset times before you schedule your shoot and be mindful if you are in a cove and might lose the sun sooner. To be on the safe side, we showed up 1 hour before Sunset. Nothing is worse than losing the light when you get your whole family out the door to take photos.

DRESS APPROPRIATELY

Hey, maybe your vibe is a princess dress on the beach. Do you. Live it up. But remember that as the sun goes down, it usually ends up getting colder. This is why I opted for sweaters and long sleeves for everyone (my dad chose his own adventure and doesn’t easily get cold) to make sure no one would get chilly in the middle of photos.

PICK A COLOR FAMILY FOR YOUR FAMILY

I talked about this in my post sharing tips and tricks for Pumpkin patch photos. It’s great for the colors to seamless blend together when it comes to your outfits in family photos. It’s also nice when things match but aren’t too perfect. I decided to go with a blue and neutral palette since it would blend really well with the Ocean and sky. What is also nice is that I knew all the boy would have blue or gray jeans in their closets all ready so it would be very easy to match those colors to the pants they already had. I sent Blake to Old Navy to find all 3 of the cousins tops that would blend together. The last thing you want is everyone wearing neutrals and one person showing up in a bright red sweater. Not the cutest to have 1 person really sticking out color wise. Trust me, blend those colors baby and keep it simple by picking one main color and balancing it with other neutrals.

BRING A CAMERA SAVY FRIEND OR PHOTOGRAPHER WITH YOU

Not everyone has the luxury of hiring a photographer for their family photos. But that doesn’t mean you can’t get the most beautiful memories and equally amazing photos. If you know you want to do someone, ask a close friend to join you for some sunset photos. Pay them in wine, beer, restaurant gift cards to make it worth their time? Do what you have to do to get someone there that is dedicated to snapping shots of you. The trouble with asking someone on the fly is you never know what you will get. Also not for nothing, my iphoneXS max takes the most epic photos so even having a close friend that is great with their iphone can capture such a sweet memory for your family.

GO WITH THE FLOW

As always, family photos are sometimes so seamless and easy and other times lots of tears can be shed… adults included. HA! Manage your expectations with kids, bring some snacks to keep them happy, and never underestimate throwing a song on your smart phone as a mood lifter!!

Pippa Middleton Wore the It Bag Only British Girls Know About

There's no denying that both of the Middleton sisters are stylish in their own right. Since the Duchess of Cambridge regularly has to attend high-profile, royal-sanctioned events, Pippa is often our go-to sister for more casual outfit ideas. Photographed in London, Pippa showed off the perfect example of her simple, classic style. 

Middleton wore a Banana Republic burgundy coat along with two bona fide wardrobe staples: skinny jeans and white sneakers. (And no, your sneakers don't have to be Jimmy Choo like hers!) But it was her bag that stood out to us the most. It's designed by Aspinal of London, a brand that's more likely to be recognized in England but is gaining popularity thanks to both Middleton sisters. Kate Middleton has worn Aspinal of London multiple times—and we all know about her power to make something sell out. Scroll down to see how Pippa wore the It brand, and shop her outfit. 

On Pippa Middleton: Banana Republic coat; Aspinal of London Portobello Bag ($315); Jimmy Choo Miami Sneakers ($445)
