ELLE Canada November 2015

Confession: My name is Erin and I have a girl crush on Gigi Hadid. She graces the cover of ELLE Canada's November cover and at first glance I thought "Eh, is this cheesy?" but she's just so cute that I'm going to let it pass. The power of Gigi is real, my friends. 
This color may be my new favorite color. Picture this as a nail polish and BAM. (You're welcome in advance.)

Kate Spade Spring 2016

Oh, hello, blog! So nice to meet your acquaintance again. I figure NYFW is the perfect time to jump back in. While I must admit, I have major envy of everyone/everything there, I'll blog from my apartment in Los Angeles and pretend I'm seeing these beautiful clothes IRL in New York. Kate Spade is my favorite for many reasons, one of them being the whimsical, childlike (without looking like something you found in the back of your closet from when you were 12 years old) and utterly delightful designs. I want one of everything. So much pink. So many flowers. So many patterns. I would like to focus on the bags, especially the ice cream truck bag. I MEAN. Could that be any cuter? No. The answer is no. While I'm desperately yearning for Fall, this does have me excited for Spring as well. Le sigh.
 Well, this is perfection. Absolute perfection.
Kate Spade bangles are the best bangles. 
 See what I mean about the flowers?
While I am absolutely obsessed with the ice cream truck bag (and the carousel bag - see below) this is the one bag I could see myself using daily. Preferably in black, but I'll take it! 
 Give me this coat, or give me death!
Can we talk about the daisy outfit on the left? I can't deal.
 Yes, this is a peanut bag. I die. I DIE. Death is upon me. (The coffee has really gone to my head, guys.)
 Doesn't this make you want to run off and get a popsicle? Nope? Just me. Okay. Whatever.

C Magazine

I mean this in the least weird way possible, Rose Byrne has a really great face. I think it's her bone structure and her cute little bob that I'm too scared to pull off. But mostly, I'm infatuated with all these spring pieces! I wasn't in the mood for spring this time around, but dang. All these florals (I know, roll your eyes Miranda Priestly...) are so beautiful. Anyhoo, she graces the cover of C Magazine and I adore it. 
I need this Michael Kors dress, or a version of the skirt, last week. It's so beautiful, I want to twirl in a field whilst wearing it. Or you know, pose like chic queen on a magazine cover. Same thing.

Billboard Music Awards 2015

I will always dislike music awards. I don't know why, I honestly can't pinpoint the cons (or pros), I just hate them. BUT I do not hate red carpets, celebrities or fashion, so it has that going for it. Shall we?
Tonight was Taylor Swift's night. She debuted her highly anticipated music video for "Bad Blood" (I was literally the only human not invited to be in it, I'm pretty sure.), she brought her incredibly gorgeous and talented posse, her envious abs and her hottie "rumored" boyfriend. I'd say girlfriend has no complaints. She looked gorgeous in this Balmain jumpsuit that perfectly outlined her abs. Did I mention I want them?...
This is an awful lot of fabric for Las Vegas. It's definitely the right amount of sequins though.
Oh, Taraji... I know I just tsk-tsk'ed Meghan Trainor for too much fabric, but this isn't exactly what I had in mind. It's 3 cut-outs too many. 
I heart Lily Aldridge for lots of reasons. Mostly because she's stunning and always so well put together. Her skirt reminds me of Beetlejuice though, therefore I'm going to veto that (I'm still holding onto those kindergarten nightmares, y'all). BUT I do love that all Taylor's girls (TBD on that name) have monogrammed Edie Parker clutches with their "Bad Blood" character names on them. UGH GOALS.
:( That's all. :(
WHO IS DENCIA AND WHY IS THIS HAPPENING? It's like I'm looking at her insides made out of candy! Ugh. Remember earlier when I was like "Gosh, I don't know why hate music award shows?!" I just remembered why. THIS is why. Ugh, I'm so sorry to end this post in such a fugly way.

Diane Kruger

Cannes Film Festival has been in full effect all week and I have to say, until today, I haven't been too blown away. But TODAY. Today changed everything. Well, actually, Diane Kruger changed everything. She stunned in this incredible Prada gown. My goodness. Can I get married in this?! Or at least drink coffee and watch "Friends" in it? I have big dreams... I know.

ELLE June 2015

Taylor Swift graces the cover of ELLE's June issue. Ah, my future BFF is at it again, taking the world by glittery storm. While I don't love the red shoes, they distract me from the glittery goodness, she is striking a fierce pose and I love her for it! Taylor Swift for President! Or for more covers. Not the same thing, but I'll take either one. 
I want a permanent purple light to follow me around.

In My Bag...

I work with beauty brands and have received my fair share of lipsticks, mascaras, blushes, etc. Seriously, I've lost track of how many different shades of lipstick I have alone. I've never been so blessed! While it's fun and exciting, 9 times out of 10, I'll use a product for a week and go back to my beloved items. When you know a product works for you, you just KNOW. (Yep, I'm comparing beauty products to love. Accept that it's happening.) Here are some of the items in my surprisingly minimalist day-to-day makeup bag.
Glossier Priming Moisturizer My love affair with Glossier started when they sent me a box of product along with the cutest stickers I'd ever seen and a pink bubble wrap cosmetic bag. I MEAN. Does it get any better than that? The answer is no, in case you were wondering. This moisturizer is my favorite for a few reasons. 1. It's unscented. A major plus with face products. 2. It's lightweight. With summer right around the corner, I can already feel my face getting dry. The problem with dry skin (besides the obvious) is most face moisturizers I've used are crazy thick. But not this one, it's light and airy, you can barely feel it. 3. This isn't proven for everyone, but one day I put it on and my boyfriend asked what I had changed about my face. I was clearly puzzled and replied "Um, I just put face lotion on?" He said it cleared me up and I looked extra radiant. Okay, I added the radiant part in. But if a boyfriend notices a makeup change, that's almost like magic, friends!// for $22
CoverGirl Clump Crusher Mascara by LashBlast in Very Black A few months ago Maybelline decided to break my heart into 17 million pieces by discontinuing the best mascara ever created. (RIP Volum Express One-by-One) I was seriously devastated, I didn't know where to turn. How could I live without a little mascara love for my eyelashes?! It was a dark time. That is, until I found CoverGirl's Clump Crusher Mascara. It had the same consistency as Maybelline and wasn't clumpy - hence the name. It went on smooth, elongated my lashes and didn't smudge after use of my rosewater spray. That's all I wanted in a new mascara! Stability. And now I've found it. I could not be happier. But I swear, if they ever take this away, I don't know what I'll do.//Target or for $5.60
CHANEL Crayon Sourcils #30 I know this may sound silly, but this was one of my first major beauty purchases. I remember it vividly. I received a Bloomingdale's gift card (Okay, so I didn't actually purchase it myself, but whatever.) and decided to treat myself to some Chanel love. Instead of a nail polish or lipstick, I went crazy and bought an eyebrow pencil. I was feeling chic and sophisticated! Oh, it changed my life. My life and my eyebrows' lives. I don't know what that means exactly, but I haven't been the same. It is the smoothest pencil I've ever tried. I'm currently trying out a new pencil and not pleased. The shade is perfect and the brush is just right! I've never really been a brand person, but I do truly believe Chanel makes the world a better place.// for $29
ESOS Smooth Sphere Lip Balm in Sweet Mint I used to see girls with these ESOS lip balms everywhere. Seriously, they traveled in packs. I was always intrigued by how they applied it and how it all fit into the little ball. This all changed when Coachella time came around. I needed a chapstick that wouldn't melt in the hot desert sun. I also wanted something that smelled good. That's where ESOS came in. Not only is the container stinkin' cute, but it smells (and tastes, that's important too) SO good. It moisturizes the perfect amount and doesn't feel heavy or waxy. The sweet mint also leaves the right amount of a tingly mint feeling. But my favorite part is that you can still apply lipstick on over the balm. That's extremely important on my list of lip balm needs. I think I'm in love!//Target or for $3.29

That's all for now. I have a lot more, but these should tide you over for now.

Glamour UK June 2015

Let's face it. Taylor Swift and I are long lost soul sisters. We just are. There is absolutely no doubt in my mind we would get along perfectly in real life. We have a lot in common (Not just including her long list of ex-lovers... I only wish they were my ex-lovers. But hey, I can dream.) and we could have cat/friend dates. If that's not perfect, then I honestly don't know what is. My BFF graces the cover of Glamour UK's June issue looking flawless, as per usual. I adore her hair and the black and white vibes of the shoot. She can do no wrong in my book. Also, I know I'm a broken record, but European magazines are always just a little better than American magazines. This just proves my point.
This dress looks like the paper snowflakes we made in elementary school. For that I love it even more. 
Girlfriend is all about those crop tops and they agree with her.
