Gal's Guide: Just Browsin'

If you know me at all, you know I'm crazy about my eyebrows. Ever since that time in college when I had McDonald like arches, that looking back on, makes me feel physically ill, through a long couple of years growing them into what I'd begin to consider a normal, acceptable, non-embarassing length. I've written before about brow products I've come across and wanted to share another stellar product to keep your brows in check and looking their best.

Paula Dorf's 2+1 Brows comes in blonde, brunette, neutral and red, each with two different, complementary shades within the compact. The two shades can be mixed to perfectly match your brow color, without being obvious. The brand's Perfect Brow Brush has a firm, just-right angled brush to easily fill in imperfections on your brow line.

Pro tip: after you've filled in your brows, wipe the brush with a tissue and then use wax to set the shape of each brow. Gently dab the brush into the wax part of the compact, I like to then dab the wax on the back of my hand, so that I don't have any clumps or bumps before shaping the brows. Less is more on this part, just use enough to set the brow to your desired shape for the day.

Paula Dorf lasts all day, with no need for touch ups!

Gal's Guide: Etsy Faves

Its no secret that I could spend hours on hours perusing around Etsy exploring shops, getting inspired and visually planning what I'd do with all of my favorites. Here are some of my recent purchases:

I See Noise - This shop has been featured on many of my favorite sites (GlitterGuide.com, etc.) for it's girly prints in gold and silver foil. I picked up the Chanel perfume print in gold and plan on styling it on a gallery wall in my home office space. Next on my wish list from ISN is this eiffel tower print.

LettersFromRita - Stephanie Rita is a local gal that makes amazing hand written prints. I recently moved in with my boyfriend, so her "Your Love is Like Home" print fit perfectly for our new space. She'll also do custom work, so if you have an idea reach out to her. What's better than great art, but shopping local?

Redwood Stoneworks - Kimberly paints all of these pots herself, and is one of the nicest shop owners I have run into! I ordered six of these miniature succulent pots in gold. These little babies are going into the kitchen on a window that overlooks the side yard and a few more are going into the living room. Check out all of the different colors she offers, they couldn't be cuter!

This perfect-for-fall look incorporates color and texture, pairing a you-could-wear-this-one-million-ways red dress with a luxe gray jacket. Throw on some booties (we shot on a hot day, so swap the sandals!) and accesories and you're good to go!
