Self Service Issue #45

A Red Lip

This holiday season I’m inspired by the matte, red lip color in this picture from Self Service issue #45—it just looks so right.

The Ultimate Advent Calendar

I still get Advent calendars for my girls, but have not considered one for myself until I came across this product-filled book-like version from Diptyque. This would certainly start off the holiday season with a bang.

Classic Scents

I’ve been hunting for a new scent. The WSJ listed five chic women who wear Chanel N°5—perhaps, a classic fragrance is the way to go.

Galop d’Hermès

Hermès has a new head perfumer, Christine Nagel, and her debut, rose-based fragrance Galop d’Hermès is purportedly a hit. Hey, I’d buy it just for the clever bottle—love the stirrup motif.

Speaking of rose-based scents, my favorite from the Le Labo Discovery Set is the Rose 31.

Le Labo

I’m on the hunt for a new fragrance and want to try these by Le Labo. The vials are the perfect size for travel, too.

Beauty

Lyn Harris Inspired

My favorite profile in “The New Garconne: How to be a Modern Gentlewoman” is on London-based perfumer Lyn Harris. Harris co-founded the luxury fragrance brand, Miller Harris, before launching her solo endeavor, the bespoke atelier Perfumer H.  I’m heading to England for college tours and look forward to meeting Ms. Harris.

Monday Must-Have

I’m a big fan of Charlotte Tilbury’s products and want to try her lipsticks. This trio of minis would be an easy way to take them on a test drive.

Beauty

Beach Cream

When I spied Aerin’s Beach Cream on Net-A-Porter this morning, I was surprised to see that it’s for both hair and skin—gotta love a double-duty product.  I bet it smells good, too.

Beauty

Highbrow

When Cara Delevingne came on the scene a few years ago, the eyebrow took center stage. I did a post on brow grooming options, bought a Tom Ford pencil, then my daughter permanently “borrowed” it. So, when my friend Alyson of That’s Not My Age posted on brow maintenance last week, I decided it was time to try again. This Laura Mercier brow pencil in Fair Blonde is my new obsession—thanks, AW.

Rosewater

I carry a small bottle of Jurlique Rosewater in my bag, especially on hot days. Reminds me of my mother spritzing herself with Evian and it smells heavenly.
