Over the weekend, I stopped by Macy's and finally used a gift card that had been burning a hole in my wallet since last Christmas! How I managed to keep it around for so long I'll never know. I have been wanting a gold watch for quite some time, but wasn't sure I wanted to go with Michael Kors or another brand. After much deliberation, I opted for this one:




Reasoning? It doesn't have any rhinestones, and it's the perfect tone of gold. Not a super stark yellow, but not champagne either. I love that the middle of the band has a brushed look, while the rest of the watch is shiny. The quality is there. Not too heavy but it does have a nice weight to it. Did you know that Fossil actually makes Michael Kors watches? But, Fossil is typically less expensive which is why I went with it rather than a different brand.


After leaving Macy's, I had to stop next door to Sephora. I had heard that YSL had a fiery red lipstick called Le Orange ( # 13 in the Rouge Couture line). I had to take a peek. Nevermind that I sometimes feel like a little girl playing dress-up and experimenting with mommy's red lipstick. I was that little girl. And sometimes when I wear a red lip, I am transported back to that happy time, standing on my tippy toes in my mother's bathroom :)





After doing some research, I learned that Kourtney Kardashian is indeed a fan. Of course it looks a bit different on me, but it's still that same orange-red. I wore it all day Sunday and it never disappeared! Even at the end of the day, I still had a stain on my lips. If you are scared of color, this will probably be "too much" for you. Otherwise, I highly recommend it. One swipe (or a few light dabs if you want to play it safe) and you are good to go. I promise to wear it in a future outfit of the day.


Surprisingly, this is my first YSL lipstick. I doubt it will also be my last...

  1. What an exciting new purchase, it's a great classic. That color looks beautiful but I am stuck on a nude/light pink lip. I tried red on Halloween one year when I was Betty Boop and my husband hated it. haha I can't say I was a fan either.

    1. That's so funny because that was my original foray into red lips too! It does take getting used to, and I think guys in general prefer light makeup but once you get used to seeing yourself in a bold lip, it is addicting!

  2. I love the watch! I'm still on the hunt for a great watch but don't want to spend too much- my three year old doesn't stay out of my jewelry box so I'm afraid it will be hidden somewhere!
    You will have to post some pictures with the YSL lipstick!

    1. Awwww :) Yes, watches are pretty pricey. Try looking at Fossil. They are still over $100 dollars, but are much less expensive then other popular brands I've seen.

  10. I had no idea Fossil makes MK watches - no wonder the designs look similar. Beautiful watch.

  12. Aww I love your watch! Red-orange lip colors are my favorite shades for red lipsticks. The YSL ones are so good! I have to use makeup remover usually to take it off completely.
