There truly is nothing greater than the feeling of being LOVED! Whether it comes from your suitor, your mate, your mom, BFF, Auntie or from yourself; the gift of LOVE truly shares no parallels. I've learned this more in the last year than in my entire life. While I never could quite wrap my head around the concept of self-love; once I discovered it's importance, I've been blown away by the magic + positivity that flows through my pulse. Valentines day is for LOVERS whether the obvious one, or those that are kept under covers. Loving YOU is the very best thing you can do! So make sure that when your picking up sweet nothings be sure to get at least one for YOU! Whatever the case the most important love comes from within - so celebrate the day by loving YOU, and if you feel like sharing go on and spread it to either her or him!

Mrs. Lilien's Beauty Bag

It's been far too long since I've sat down + spilled all the treasures and bits with which my beauty bag is filled. What once were my necessities have undergone a minor switch - for I'm now living on GUAM where it's 10 degrees hotter (!!!!) but truth be told, humidity has remained my main b*tch. Take notice that not all things require island heat + bodily precipitation, you'll scoot across some serious bits that you, too, must introduce to your daily rotation! I'll include a little "why" in the info down below, so you know what you're missing + why you'll cherish it so!

1. NARS TIMANFAYA > This mega pencil makes for the ultimate resort lip! I live resort 24/7, therefore it’s my go to.

2. BUMBLE + BUMBLE INVISIBLE OIL > The things that HAIR dreams are made of!!!  

3. MASON PEARSON HAIR BRUSH > The only thing that touches my hair aside from my own hands

4. KOPARI COCONUT OIL > A DAILY essential... I’m not sure I could now exist without it!

5. ODEME HAIR BANDS (12 PACK) > while my hair just died, I cannot use these anymore BUT they are BY FAR the most elite hair elastic of all time!! The enormous gilded pin that they come on is worth the entire purchase itself!

6. ODEME BOBBING PINS > these are my most absolute favorite hair flare of late. Not only do they come in incredible saturated colors, are build EXTRA long for those of us with unruly horse hair, they are statement making all their own! The packaging that they arrive in will have you sweating with stress over ‘DO I, or DON’T I actually use these’ because the whole kit and kaboole is pure eye candy!!!

7. ODEME POLISH > Light Cassavettes on the nails + bold Cuba Libre for the toes. Odeme’s nail polishes arrive in THE most adoring of boxes. The kind you wouldn’t DARE throw away. The kind that you actually store the coveted polish in at all times when not in use.

8. BOBBI BROWN CREME BLUSH > In Calypso Coral... there is no substitute! Best creme blush on UNIVERSE!!! Believe me, I’ve tried them ALL! 

9. NARS EYE PAINT > On pale or even tan skin, this is a stunning shade. It’s creamy + pigmented and if nothing else, a simple coat of black mascara takes you to insta-glam!!

Fabulousness 101

We all have choices, there’s no doubt about it. When it comes to matters of accessorizing there’s no reason to mask it! Every personal necessity presents a statement-making opportunity. So when given the option, why not accessorize beautifully?! Outward adornments ought to be considered extensions of personal style. Expressing one’s self with added swerve, shows they’ve gone the extra mile.

I’m a huge proponent of personal flair. A fluffy pouf here, a fabulous tassel there. I’m confident that my flamboyant persuasion has confirmed I’m no square. I know so because I get complimented on it everywhere!!!

Inevitably it bubbles up applause followed by a doubtful declaration. For example: “Darling, your dazzling! I could never get away with that!” P’shaw I say, it’s all in the way your carry it. Snap! Be it your wallet, your watch, your shoes or your phone; make them fabulous, noteworthy, make them treasures to be shown!

Take a peek above at the STIL tassled phone case - a sublime affirmation of an accessory that screams style + grace. It mixes the coveted metallic elements with Italian leather to produce a powerful little 'Love Triangle’ that’ll bring an entire ensemble together. 

Garnishing your wardrobe with on point ornamentation is an honorable habit with which there is no limitation. It’s easy to be a plain Jane, but it takes effort to be artful. It merely takes seeing objects of need as a chance to bedazzle your ensemble.

The CHAINS of LOVE

When all else fails, throw a tassel on it! Preferably one with charisma + an enviably high-spirited enigma. Whomever said inanimate objects can't speak for themselves - I firm fistedly oppose!!! My stance is unyielding + THIS is how it goes... 

EVERY object you own should bring forth copious amounts of joy. We all know this, yes? If not, then it'd be my highest recommendation to engage + employ. Here's the thing - what if an object we once loved is beginning to lose it's ever-joyous bling?! That's where the chains come in - the chains of LOVE... they will solve this very problem and it'll feel something like a highly intoxicating hug. So ditch the drink + choose your friend and you're one step closer to a blingless bag on the mend!

Reclaimed Wall Art

Today's MRS lesson is one for us all... an eco-friendly method of dressing our walls! After gifted a lovely LUSH package I couldn't bare the thought of trashing the box's tropicana paper jacket. I "hmmmm'ed" and I nodded, I inquired + I plotted. Moments later, like a blinding gem, the answer sparkled + shined within vision. On the WALLS is where it belongs! Traced, cut, framed + hung - in a space like this you just cannot go wrong! Happy planet, happy walls, happy paper, happy YOU! SEE... everybody wins through + through.

Happy Crafting!

Elevated Scents

When it comes to fragrance - I say make a STATEMENT. Elevate your every limb with something vivacious. Ye need not many... two or three will do! One for the day, one for the night + one therapeutically magical for when you're not quite feeling right! The above three scents are my of-the-moment obsessions, each and every one of them make a positively enlightening bottle to skin impression.

As for the home...every space needs it's own unique essence and i'm utterly obsessed that I can give a room down the hall a taste of the kitchen!!! PRODUCE CANDLES?! I mean, can you really even handle? My mouth is watering at the thought...it's utterly substantial!

P.S. Every pick above is SAFE, SAFE, SAFE. No nasty chemicals that are purposely underplayed.

Creative Freedom Footsies

Kicking off the weekend on a blank slate...quite literally! My littlest littles spent the island morning customizing their kicks eagerly, candidly + ever-so-liberally. It's no wonder why the shoe won an award, it's the most brilliant idea I'VE ever heard. Expressive and playful, we deem it a "Lilien WINNER", a project that makes our eyes sparkle and our hearts glimmer!!! When things of the sort float into my MRS-sphere I feel it my utmost duty to shout, clap, jump and SHARE! A fun summer project worth a little investment or a GIFT that will erupt into a creative little whirlwind FUNFAIRE! As a mother, my heart pitter patters at every opportunity to encourage freedom, expression and creativity in full bloom!!! 

Go on, give 'em a chance to PLAE in the best of ways!!!
