Bite Lip Lab

Lately I’ve been seeing a lot of posts about Bite Beauty‘s lip labs on social media channels and wanted to give it a try. I generally don’t get all hyped up on this stuff but it looked super fun and an amazing experience to share with my mom as part of her birthday celebrations. The idea behind the Bite Lip Lab is to give us lipstick loving people an opportunity to customize our lipstick shades as much as possible. Coverage and texture, colour and scent.

If you don’t believe me check out some of the ancient books on display by Avicenna. His “The Book of Healing” was used in universities to train doctor’s for centuries. We’re talking about 6 or 7 centuries! Check out this map that shows how far spread the Muslim world was to both east and west throughout the centuries. I digress, the Museum has a great in-house …

I’m Obsessed with Wrapped clothing!!

My obsession with wrap tops and dresses is not a new thing but it went on over drive after picking up couple of them for my recent trip to Mexico and now all I see is wrap things. Real wrap, faux wrap, dresses or tops. I don’t discriminate. This little fuzzy pictured red number is from me quickly taking a selfie before I pack for my trip. I found some lovely wrap options for Summer time that I share with you in this post. A lot of them are from Nordstrom, since I was doing some online shopping been during their recent sale.
