Pain is Love.

At times I like to look at shoes as a fetishist. These Balmain knockoffs by Zara positively scream that they wish to inflict pain upon their wearer, yet I can't look away. They will be mine!

Unlikely Influence

Strange Love.

This image of Devendra Banhart has somehow weaseled its way into my consciousness and won't quit or disappear. It's very uncommon for a man let alone a folk artist to so dramatically influence my taste but I cannot help adore his freakishly feminine physique and his penchant for Bollywood. The fact that he dated Natalie Portman and lives in Bolinas is just the icing on the cake. Banhart not only makes me want to swoon, he makes me wish to adorn myself 76405732 bangles and rings.

I don't believe in beauty secrets. It is simple and plain to see that good skin is nothing more than the byproduct of a healthy lifestyle and good genes. I do see though that there are some products that have drastically cut down the inordinate amount of time I used to spend getting glossy. These five wonderful products have truly alloted me hours upon hours of free time, so I thought I would share with you loveys.

The 5 Absolute Best Beauty Products:

1. L'Oreal Telescopic Mascara in Carbon Black
2. Revitalash Eyelash Regrowth Serum
3. Laura Mercier blush in Amberstone
4. Smashbox HALO Hydrating Perfecting Powder
