This winter weather (although some days in LA are quite warm) has gotten my skin feeling rather dull and dry. Luckily, Clarins just released six SOS Primers for all my beauty needs! 00 Universal Light boosts radiance, 01 Rose minimizes signs of fatigue, 02 Peach blurs imperfections, 03 Coral visibly minimizes dark spots, 04 Green diminishes redness, and 05 Lavender visibly brightens sallow skin. The two primers I use most are 00 and 01 because as someone who is always working late hours and feeling exhausted, my skin is constantly craving for freshness and glow. I also love that you can either apply the primers before foundation or mix them with your foundation. How convenient! Oh and the pastel packaging is just too pretty! Nicely done, Clarins!

Happy Valentine's Day, everyone! To be honest, I don't really care but if you do, I wish you a happy one. I am always torn about this day. I love pink, I love hearts, I love all things girly and cute but at the same time I hate how overrated this is. I have learned many life lessons in the last two years and one of which is self love. Loving yourself seems like an easy task right? But many of us struggle with that. I myself am one. I always put others before me and I have been told I am too selfless and too willing which sometimes isn't a great thing. The truth is... rien n'est éternel (nothing lasts forever), but you will always be there for you. So, this year I put on this gorgeous dress with red floral embroidery from Tobi for ME because it makes ME feel great.

At the end of last year I was feeling very hopeful about 2018. Think good thoughts and good things will come, right? Well, January wasn't exactly easy and this year is off to a rocky start but I am staying positive because a couple of weeks ago I read something and it got me thinking... I spent the majority of last two years feeling like I am running behind/ running out of time but the truth is everyone has their own timeline. Not only is this beautifully crafted JORD watch a functional piece but it also acts as a good reminder that my time will come. The Cassia watch has a simple and classic watch face in a domed sapphire glass paired with the most gorgeous wood and metal interlaced band. Such a unique and timeless piece and it even comes in three different colorways! Mine is zebra and ivory but there are also ebony and sable, walnut and vintage rose, as well as olive and aegean blue. Time is precious, I just need to focus on the things I love and keep pushing and when it's the right time, everything will fall into place. And since Valentine's Day is right around the corner, JORD and I have teamed up to show you some love. We are giving away $100 to one lucky winner to spend on the JORD site and you also receive 10% off just by entering! So what are you waiting for? Enter here.

Pont Alexandre III has got to be the prettiest bridge in Paris. Believe it or not, even though I have been to Paris four times, this was my first time walking on this structure. The bridge connects the Champs-Élysées quarter with those of the Invalides and Eiffel Tower. From the bridge, you can see the dome of Les Invalides lit up golden at sunset with the Eiffel Tower as backdrop to the right. It is simply picturesque! The Beaux-Arts style bridge is quite ornate with its Art Nouveau lamps, cherubs, nymphs and winged horses and on a perfectly overcast day, that powder blue looks especially dreamy against the soft gray sky. And in case you are wondering, I did purposefully plan to wear this over-the-top sequined cape-like jacket to match the gold details of the bridge. This is why packing for a trip always takes forever because I am literally planning outfits for specific locations! But hey, it's worth it right?

Sacré-Cœur atop Montmartre in Paris is exactly what you would imagine it to be. Its Romano-Byzantine styled architecture, built of travertine stone, is grand, beautiful, and absolutely breathtaking. The view from there is amazing and even more spectacular if you climb up to the top of the dome. The spiral (and very narrow) stairs were challenging but very much worth it. There is something quite haunting (in a good way) when you walk around up there looking out at Paris as far as the eyes could see. I've said it before but I will say it again... An overcast Paris is the Paris of my dreams with everything being the most perfect shades of white, cream, and gray. Therefore, it is only appropriate that I match my surrounding with an equally neutral outfit. I adore these striped trousers by Current Air, they fit like a dream and the length is perfect for my petite frame. I styled them with an off-shoulder sweater, suede pumps by Madewell and a pom pom beret from Charlotte Russe.
