Summertime, and the living is easy! I was out in the park recently, and took some photos with my new 55-210 mm lens. The above shot of the Empire State Building is my fave.
Meanwhile in beauty news, Beauty Pie is launching an affordable skin care line, Brooke Shields is getting back together with Calvin Klein, and Estee Lauder has named a new global beauty director who is French. And very cool.
Beauty Pie announced this week it is launching a skincare line with everything priced between $5 and $13. The six-month-old company was started by Marcia Kilgore of Bliss and Soap & Glory fame. For a monthly fee of $10, Beauty Pie lets members buy unbranded makeup with no retail markup. Think mascara for $2! Now, they are selling skincare. I may just have to try it out! (Racked)
Remember the 80s, when nothing came between Brooke Shields and her Calvins? Well, Shields and the company have announced they are collaborating on an as-yet-unspecified new project. Stay tuned…(Fashion Network)
In an effort to attract a hipper, younger customer, Estee Lauder has announced it has named French makeup artist, social media star, and all-around It girl Violette as the new global beauty director for its namesake brand. Violette will be working closely with Estee Lauder’s global creative director Matthew Parr. The Estee your mother and grandmother loved could use a drink from the fountain of youth. Putting Kendall Jenner on a billboard just isn’t enough. (WWD)
This week on the blog, I shared my latest find, Lime & Lotus Organics.
This year, I’m doing the Eyecandy Project 52 photography challenge. Every week, we have to take a picture inspired by a prompt, such as From Above. Some prompts are relevant to the time of year, some are more evergreen. I’ll post my more successful efforts here about once a quarter. Check out the Q1 highlights here.
