Things I'm Loving

1. Nude Lips

While I know this is a fluke, a mere glitch in my system, as of late, my nude lipsticks have been getting more love from me. It's because of my outfit choices, this I know, but I figured it was monumental to mention during this list. No, mom, this does not mean that I've given up on my dark, vampy lips. It just means that I have options and no longer feel weird wearing natural lip colors when it's for the good of my outfits.

My favorites have been NARS Rikugien and Lorac Pink Taupe!

2. The Start of NYFW

Okay, so none of the shows have started when I'm posting this, but that doesn't mean I'm any less excited. I'm so excited for fall runways that I could burst. I am alive with the sound of music for this next month and I cannot wait to see what designers are going to do this season, how they'll improve or match their past collections.

I stayed up to watch the Saint Laurent show live at the Palladium last night and let me just say...if that's how to Fall/Winter collections are going to be this season, we're all in for a treat. I was in sparkle and velvet heaven, with stunning leather culottes and enough leopard print to make a girl scream.

3. Coming Home by Leon Bridges

Leon Bridges comes up on some of my playlists at work or the Pandora stations we keep on, but I'd never given his music much attention on its own. I was scrolling through the new releases on Spotify the other day to try to find some new tunes to listen to while I was getting work down and I saw his album in there. I figured I'd give it a shot. The worst that could've happened is that I didn't enjoy the first couple of songs and I could find something else to listen to.

Of course, that didn't happen, which is why I'm writing this section of the blog on it. I don't even know how to begin to describe his music. It's a little bluesy, a little southern, and it's got so much heart that it makes my cheeks flush. There's something so old sounding about it that I love. It sounds like something I would've listened to in my Roots of Rock and Soul class freshmen year and I adore that feel about it. It's so cool and modern, yet managing to sound like a blast from the past.

To listen to: "Coming Home," "Flowers," "Daisy Mae," and "Here In My Arms."
