The Single Girl Loves BKLYN

“Trump Hates Brunch” and “Trump Hates Rosé”. Political satire at it’s best brought to you by the the clever team over at Loves BKLYN. BUT there’s much more to this brand then just Trump Hates Whatever…

The concept actually began with MTL Loves BKLYN.

Kevin and Luke, the faces behind the brand and former geography majors, were in Montreal for a bachelor party taking in the city’s culture and scene and noticed the feel was very much like Brooklyn, determining that these two cities were sister cities.

Sister City: A city that is linked to another, usually for the purposes of cultural exchange.

Brooklyn:  One of the Burroughs of NYC (The Cultural Melting Pot) and perfect hub because of it’s rising popularity and distinct cultural environment and style.

Geography and Fashion Intertwined.

The hope was by connecting different sister cities with Brooklyn they could create a “movement of appreciation” between different cities connecting cultures and people with fashion.

And I would say they’ve accomplished this.

So whether you Love BKLYN or want to start an important political conversation with a Trump Hates t-shirt. Loves BKLYN has something for you.

“My New Favorite…Red Lipstick”

Buxom – Full on Lipstick – “Barcelona” Red

Screen Shot 2017-08-19 at 3.08.15 PM

This just might be my NEW FAVORITE red lipstick AND “Barcelona” is the perfect name because like the city with this shade of red,  you’re going to feel sexy and turnt up no matter when you wear it.

Here are some reasons I fell in LOVE with Buxom’s Full on Lipstick…

  1. It’s not the standard size of other lipsticks, it’s crayon size so it can act like a liner that you can then fill in rather easily. This is especially important with red lipsticks so that it doesn’t creep outside of your actual lip. #girlproblems
  1. It’s a creamy glide on, so unlike other lipsticks your lips don’t feel dry on application. Which is important! I hate that with some other brands you have to moisturize after which often times takes away from the magic of its true color.
  1. This is also a plumping lipstick, so I LOVE the cooling, tingly sensation. It’s basically letting me know that my lips will be at their fullest when I have this lipstick on.
  1. In the words of Audrey Hepburn, “On a bad day, there’s always lipstick”. And I’m pretty sure that there are ZERO bad days with this one.  “Barcelona” Red by Buxom will leave you strutting in your oversized sweat pants.

I like to keep things clean, simple, and easy. Wanted to share that you don’t have to “do a lot” or spend very much time to look and feel naturally beautiful every day. IMG_0641

Here’s everything I use to give myself a natural make-up look, and it only takes me 5-10 minutes to apply!

What’s also great about the below products is that if you decide to go straight into a date night after your casual work day these neutral products make it easy to build your look to something more glam for your “after hours” look.
