April Showers Bring…the Blahs

Another day, another fine layer of gray mist over Manhattan. It’s hard to get peppy when it’s this meh outside. Here’s how I’m coping:

Smooth fuzzy hair with Oscar Blandi Olio di Jasmine Hair Serum. Just because it’s still chilly doesn’t mean it’s not humid. This weird in-between weather makes my hair do the ‘frazzled librarian’ thing, so I use a few drops of this floral serum to calm it down. 

Spritz a bit of Serge Lutens L’Eau. The perfumer wanted this scent to smell like clean — I think it smells oceany and fresh. It’s energizing and light — the exact opposite of how I feel.

Brighten up with a highlighter. Since my skin hasn’t seen the sun in approximately six months, I need a little help creating that healthy glow. NARS Orgasm Illuminator is my best friend. I layer it on over a pinky blush to get a tiny bit of sheen, and dab a bit on eyelids too.

Ah, that’s better. Give me a cup of coffee and I’ll be ready to face the world. 


Happy Thursday! You totally deserve a treat for making it through the week — pick one up in the Birchbox Shop.
