Knotting a scarf on top of my head makes me feel a little like a housekeeper. In a good way.

Way more often than not, I wear Dr. Pepper Lip Smackers as my sole lip treatment, but to celebrate my lips on this fine blazing June day, I went for some bold lipstain instead. Little known fact: putting stuff on your lips correctly can be tough, and looking at the pictures from the day, I can see that I did so a little unevenly.

But it feels oh-so-ladylike, right?


  1. The scarf and lipstick combo is super fantastic. Love it. Very 1940s housekeeper, but in a good way, like you said.

  2. I've only tried lip stain once and it went terribly wrong. Yours looks great! What brand did you use?
