I’m the world’s most boring lipstick-girl. I find one shade I like and stick with it for eternity without ever trying anything new. Almay sent me a bunch of lipsticks from their new line Smart Shade Butter Kiss…. and five sets to give away to TCP readers! I. Can’t. Get. Enough.
I think my lipstick mishaps boil down to a) not knowing what color to choose and b) the textures are either too dry or too sticky. Can anyone else relate? This Almay line solves both those problems. It’s super easy to choose a shade. They’re named after the color and skin tone they look best with (no confusing names that don’t mean anything about the color!) and the texture is incredibly smooth. Like, well, butter!!!! The hydration is extra important for me during the winter because my lips tend to get so dry from just walking around outside all day. (Learn more at almay.com!)
They come in four different colors: Berry, Pink, Nude, and Red.
My mom and sister were over at my apartment last night. We spent a good thirty minutes playing with the lipsticks. We each have different skin tones so it ended up being great for divvying up the lipsticks! Ha! It was crazy to see how the different reds ended up looking with each of our skin tones. I loved the bright color pink (medium) looked in the tube, but we all agreed that the actual light shade looked so much better with my coloring.
The best part is that the lipsticks are available at your favorite drug stores and they’re totally affordable. It’s pretty fantastic. (Hey moms, these would be perfect stocking stuffers!)

Wearing vs styling an outfit with a bump! I feel so much better when I’m wearing something cute (dress well to feel well maybe?)… I’ve been fighting the temptation to wear comfy clothes while pregnant though! So far I have found blazers and cardigans an easy way to dress up my second trimester bump, especially as we enter fall.
Fall for me means tailored blazers, touches of corduroy, and cozy sweaters… @jcrew, as always, has us covered with all the classics! Shop my head to toe look with @shop.ltk #liketkit https://liketk.it/4iOR7 #injcrew #ad
When @beaconhillbooksandcafe lives up to the hype and THEN SOME 🐿️ ✨ I got a little tour of this special bookstore from the owner herself and I couldn’t be more grateful. There is something magical about any bookshop, but when one is this thoughtful it’s hard not to fall in love with reading all over again. @sisterparishdesign textiles, @farrowandball coordinating paint, bestsellers & classics commingled on curated shelves. A little squirrel mascot named Paige, with her own story and her own entrance and her own little Boston-inspired house hidden away in the bottom of a shelf. Every detail is perfect, especially those on the children’s floor, where little ones can enter through a tiny door and press a big red button to activate a model train that circles the space.
