Beauty Review: Chanel Coromandel Lipstick and Nail Colour.

My favorite red.

My favorite red.

It’s not often we stumble upon that perfect red lip and nail. I found mine at the Chanel counter while my husband and I were in Vegas . Now I have been rocking a red lip and red nail all summer (read more about my summer beauty favorites here). Never being a red lip/red nail kind of girl, I would have never picked these 2 beauty pieces if the boldness of Vegas hadn’t overcome me by the time I reached the beauty department. My natural skin tone is a beige with neutral to gold undertones so this is the perfect red for warmer skin. Here are some beauty swatches in natural light…

Animal Print Scarf and Black Cashmere.

Last week my husband and I had a date day at the zoo. It was actually rather chilly for July in Minnesota so I bundled up in my thinnest cashmere sweater, soft black leggings, and an over sized animal print scarf in summer colors. I finished my look with a pair of bejeweled leopard sandals (I’m not big on flip flops) and a pair of aviators. It was the perfect casual ensemble for a day of walking around outside, taking pictures of the animals, and spending quality time together.

I love sweaters that sneak just a peek of shoulder.

The petting zoo is always my favorite part. I think goats are just adorable!
