Our Spring Blush Crush: Leigh

Our Spring Blush Crush: Leigh

Early this spring, we did a photo shoot featuring lovely model Sarah at a local rug and textile company, Christiane Millinger Oriental Rugs and Textiles.  We were so enchanted with the way Sarah's coloring combined with her fresh, spring makeup look and the gorgeous rug behind her, that we just couldn't resist showcasing her makeup look, which features one of our favorite blushes for spring--Leigh Luminous Shimmer Blush.

Friday Link Love: Mother's Day Edition

When we were children, Mother's Day inspired us to ask when children's day would be celebrated. You know the inevitable response: every day is children's day. We did find that to be wholly unsatisfying though now we see the truth of it (mostly). Whether you are a child or a mother or both we hope you have a wonderful weekend with loved ones!

Doing a little Mother's Day cooking? This looks delicious. Thank you Katie.

Speaking of obsessions - we can't seem to get enough rhubarb these days.

We'll be celebrating the day with brunch at Accanto. A charming little local trattoria with fantastic food, it's worth making a reservation if you find yourself in Portland. When the weather is lovely (yes! it happens!) you can even sit outside.

Ready to write that novel? Here's a way to get started. Spark Yourself has a lovely interface and blog for inspiration. Maybe you'll be ready for this in the Fall.

Get ready for lunar energy - you knew it was only a matter of time. This gismo is beautiful, too.

Lillie Magazine just launched and we think it's gorgeous. Not to mention they featured a mineral makeup brand rather dear to our hearts. Why yes, we are blushing.

Natasha Khan (of Bat for Lashes) is just so cool and beautiful.

Daughter's soulful cover has been on repeat all week at our design desk.

Yeah, we think so too.

Happy Weekend!!!

We are in awe of Bea Johnson and the beautiful way in which she has evolved her home to be essentially waste free. She offers gracious tips and advice for those who wish to follow in her footsteps in her new book and on her blog.

There are indeed lots of wonderful reasons to enjoy Portland. Let's add Olo to the list - trip to Portland not required.

Speaking of ways to save trees, PaperKarma makes it easy to eliminate unwanted junk mail. Download the free app, take pictures of the offending mail, and request to be unsubscribed. Done.

We hope we can work out as gracefully as Maia when we are 96. And also before.

This blog is just plain beautiful. Truly.

Okay, we admit it. We are kinda proud of being carbon free for 5 years! We couldn't have done it without Carbonfund.org, who have planted 50 trees to mark the occasion.

Happy weekend everyone!

Our current lunch obsession. Favorite combo: red cabbage, cucumber, pepper, tomato, feta, green olive and balsamic vinaigrette. Dark chocolate for dessert, of course.

We're blushing over No More Dirty Looks fabulous Alima Pure review. Alexandra also has a great article up about hair color.

Our beloved Palace has the cutest tumblr ever!

Happy weekend everyone!

For the Perfect Brows

For the Perfect Brows

Eyebrows may well be the most often overlooked area of the face when it comes to applying makeup. Maybe you feel as if your brows are already heavy enough, or don’t love the natural shape. But what women who skip brow makeup may not realize is that your brows provide a frame that can draw attention to the eye, and can even make them look larger.

Oh, Deer! Fun Makeup Tutorial for Kids

Oh, Deer! Fun Makeup Tutorial for Kids

Recently, we were contacted by Portland-area photographer Diana Sell with an interesting question. She wanted to do a photo shoot for her son's Kindergarten class as an auction project, and needed a little help with the makeup. Now, normally we aren't fans of kindergarteners wearing makeup, but Diana had found an on-line tutorial on how to do deer makeup. Since her son attends Deer Creek school, it seemed like a natural!  But the tutorial showed all sorts of makeup that didn't seem like the best things to put on the sensitive skin of young children, so Diana reached out for a little advice.

Celebrate Hanami with Alima Pure

Celebrate Hanami with Alima Pure

Walking around downtown Portland over the weekend, there they were--the first cherry blossoms of spring!  That makes it the perfect time to introduce our new collection for Spring 2013, the Hanami Collection.  Hanami translates to “flower viewing,” but in Japan, it most commonly refers to cherry blossom viewing.  Participating in Hanami can be anything from a stroll through a park to an elaborate evening picnic under lighted trees.  Although Hanami originated in Japan, cities around the world are creating their own Cherry Blossom or Hanami festivals.
