When there are this many beautiful leaves on the ground, the obvious thing to do is to pick them up and throw them in the air in celebration of Fall, right?! So, I’m back in New York now, and the weather is very different from Seattle. It was freezing when I stepped off the plane at 6am yesterday morning, but it was bright and sunny and the city felt hopeful. I feel so incredible lucky that my apartment, for the most part, was spared from the storm, but my thoughts are constantly with the people less fortunate. And, since I am traveling a lot over the next two months and am not around to physically help out, I have been trying to figure an alternative option. There is Red Cross, which is great, but when I saw this list that my dear friend Keiko Lynn posted on her blog (see below) I jumped at the chance to donate, and to share it with you all. Because every bit counts. xo
For those of you who missed Keiko’s amazing Makeup Monday yesterday, I thought I would re-share her original post with you all for fun! I came to her wondering how to wear a bold lip with minimal makeup, and this is what she came up with. I thought it was pretty genius and now want to rock this look all the time. I love being her model and am always so impressed with the outcome when we’re done. Thanks Keiko! xo

I felt so honored to be a model for my good friend Keiko Lynn’s Makeup Monday post. Read about how to create this smokey eye, here! xoxo
Due to the on-again-off-again drizzly weather we had this past weekend, I pretty much lived in this cozy yellow knit. I love how bright and cheerful it is, especially on a gray and overcast day. Saturday night I met Keiko and Helena for a yummy dinner in Park Slope, then indulged in some much needed couch time at Keiko’s, snuggled up with her sweet cats, Kitty Boos, Vester and Lacy, and her pretty puppy, Miku. Animals and great friends really are the best, don’t you think? xo
