Derek Cardigan Glasses from Coastal.com






Derek Cardigan 7021 in Olive c/o Coastal.com

I love having a lot of glasses to choose from, but even with my growing collection, I realized that I didn’t have a pair of everyday tortoiseshell colored frames. I have giant cat-eyes and frames that are half tortoise/half clear, but a lot of days I want something classic and timeless. That’s why when I was contacted by coastal.com about a new pair, I agonized over every pair of tortoiseshell glasses in the Derek Cardigan range.

I got my first pair of Derek Cardigan glasses through coastal.com’s first pair free deal, and now I have three, so obviously I’m a fan! I’ve worn these every day since I got them about a week ago. I still love my other big, bold frames, but I’ve been craving a pair of glasses that can go with literally everything. Tortoiseshell glasses are one of those classic pieces that anyone can pull off. I can’t ignore my other frames forever, but these are going to be in heavy rotation for awhile, especially with fall coming up!

If you’ve been looking into getting glasses but haven’t taken the plunge, I highly recommend coastal.com’s First Pair Free deal. I’m hoping that my mister is about to take the glasses plunge and it’s been so much fun looking through all the choices with him. They have a great selection for ladies and fellas alike.

NARS Tolede Lipstick & New Peepers




Derek Cardigan 7010 Frames in Smoke & NARS Tolede Lipstick

I promise this is my last pair of glasses. When Coastal.com had a sale a few weeks back, I couldn’t help it. I now have one of every style I’ve ever wanted. Since these are newer they’ve been getting a lot of wear in my eye wear rotation. I’ve also been wearing my new NARS Tolede Satin Lipstick almost every day. I bought it when I was picking up a gift for my sweet Becca’s birthday, and I’d had my eyes on this one for awhile so I tossed it in my bag. I have a NARS Velvet Matte Lip Pencil but I’ve never owned a NARS tube lipstick. What have I been doing!? It’s a beautiful rosy color that almost perfectly matches my lips, and the texture is like heaven. I really hate the term “my lips but better”, but dammit that’s what this is. MLBB.


I feel like my everyday lip colors have less staying power since they aren’t as bold as one of my reds or berry colors, but when I wear this Make Up For Ever clear Lip Line Perfector underneath Tolede, it lasts a good 6 hours and has even fade when it does wear off. I used to use the Maybelline clear lip liner and it works good, but the MUFE one gets my lips so tacky that anything will stick forever! I like it even better than my MAC Lip Prep & Prime (but not by much I swear).

I hope everyone’s had a good week! I’m really looking forward to this weekend. I’ve felt like every day was Friday since mid-week and it’s been throwing off my groove.
