//What I'm About / Vol. 1


As a HUGE fan of red lipstick (the amount of different ones I have numbers in probably the 30s...), I was tickled by the history of red lipstick as recounted in this Bustle article (Gabriela Hernandez, founder of B├ęsame Cosmetics, contributed!). Swipe on your favorite red and kick some ass!


Speaking of Besame, I am so about this lately. I only own two colors so far--Red Velvet (the color worn by Agent Carter on the show) and Victory Red. The Victory Red even comes with an amazing lapel pin! Although Besame offers other cosmetics, their lipsticks are some of my favorites ever. Most colors are replicas of actual vintage colors and are so well made--even the packaging is spot on!


The Vickie Dress by Tatyana is amazing!! SO flattering! I first ordered the green one and loved it so much, I ended up getting the other two colors, as well. I'm an attorney and so these fit in very well into my professional wardrobe.


I am OBSESSED with my current manicure! I have admired Dita von Teese's nails for so long but wasn't sure if I could pull it off--turns out I can! It looks so chic and totally works at work! I feel so glamorous <3 It's called a half-moon manicure, so Google it and take it to your nail salon because you are going to love it.


There is an antique store in my hometown that I like to scour every now and again and sometimes I find some great stuff. This Christmas apron, red handbag, and wedding photo are giving me heart eyes for days. There is something so romantic about these old wedding photos. And while the handbag is too small for my wallet, IDGAF. Imma rock it anyway.


I avoid blogging too much about politics because it's frustrating to me, so I'm just going to say that I'm not happy with our current administration. These pins allow me to be passive aggressive and express my opinions without being too in your face. Yay! The Nasty Woman pin is by The Tempestuous Teacup (I have a mint-colored one they released) and the D.G.M.P. is by 1-2-3 Pins & Collectibles, and both pins help support charities!


Finally, I am LOVING my new Rifle Paper Co. 12-month agenda! It's clothbound hardcover (so it looks like a book!) and has copper foil on the front and back, as well as two ribbon bookmarks. I am definitely a "paper" gal and I have probably 3 planners that I use simultaneously, along with a huge wall calendar.
