Sick Days

After dealing with pneumonia the last week and a half, I thought I'd share some tips that always make me feel better while sick. Though they don't treat the root of the problem (go to the doctor for that!), these tricks do help soothe some of the the symptoms of many common illnesses!
How do you take care of yourself on sick days?
Until next time-
Here's to staying healthy,

Geo Print Scarf

I've been ALL about oversized scarves lately and this one has been 
on constant repeat, especially now with the colder weather!
Another thing on repeat? This ring- I'm obsessed.
Top//Scarf (similar color way, other great options here, here and here)//
If you happen to be local and sitting around at home tonight looking for 
something to do, "Taste of Brookside" is happening this evening. Fifteen
restaurants are participating and it benefits Youth Services of Tulsa. Good
eats for a great cause? I'm all in. Just be sure to bundle up!
Until next time-
Here's to all things cozy,

Rothenburg

{Gorgeous climbing vines beginning to change colors}
{Walking the Wall}
{Vineyards just outside the town's walls}
 {Rothenburg had an odd thing for teddy bears?}
{A perfect little lunch in the town center}
 {Our accommodations, Hotel Klosterstüble}
{Window boxes, window boxes...}
{Window boxes!}
{Tiniest door}
{And prettiest door}
Our first stop in Germany was to a Medieval town called 
Rothenburg. Though there wasn't much to do, we enjoyed
walking the town and its wall and tasting the local wine and food
The highlight of the day was the Night Watchman Tour. Hundreds 
of people flocked to this one man as he led us around town and 
told us stories of it's history! Rothenburg was definitely worth seeing 
but probably not for more than a one night stay.
Until next time,
Stay tuned- Next week is Paris!

Fall/Winter Beauty Buys

 
1. Laura Mercier Sheer Crème color in "Golden Pink" (similar). Perfect for this time of the year when skin tends to look a little dull. Blend a touch on your cheekbones for added luminosity!
2. Laura Mercier "Pink Pout" crème smooth lip color. It packs the perfect punch of color and isn't too pink.
3. GlamGlow SUPERMUD. Google image it. Yes- those nasty photos are really what it looks like after it dries. It draws out oil, dirt and "congestion."  It works.
4. GlamGlow THIRSTYMUD. The only thing saving my skin with the recent weather change. I apply a thin layer before bed and let it soak in over night. When I wake up, my skin feels SO soft. It smells like coconuts too!
5&6. Guerlain Météorites Powder and brush. I'd been looking for a powder to set my makeup, but didn't want one that felt too powdery. This fits the bill and leaves a thin, light reflecting veil! Perfect!
7. Urban Decay Revolution Lipstick in "Native" is the perfect nude- add a swipe of gloss to finish the look!
8. Laura Mercier "Healthy Lip" sheer lip color. The perfect "lip bitten" red. It's sheer but the color can be built up to a deeper red if you like. It almost feels more like a chapstick, which I love.
9. GlamGlow YOUTHMUD, it tingles and exfoliates and it's awesome.
10. Laura Mercier Baked Eye Color Quad in "Rendezvous in Monte Carlo" The prettiest and most practical quad out there. I love that I can wet the darker brown/purple and use them as eyeliner too.
What are some of your favorite beauty buys?
Until next time-
Here's to glowing skin,
