    Thanks April! Very timely. I was just wondering about spring lip color today as the weather is finally more spring like near me. Also, I love the layered necklace with the stripes. I often struggle to find what type of necklace works with stripes. Thanks for your tips!

  2. I can’t wait to try this. I just got the Senegence eye shadow, but left it at home when I had to unexpectedly go out of state. I can’t try it when I get home. Thanks for the awesome tip.

  3. Cool tip for cool skin gals. On an unrelated note, I love how you’ve layered those dainty necklaces. Would you consider doing a blogpost on coordinating clothes with jewelry or how to layer it for a bold, interesting, dynamic feel while keeping it classic and incorporating less heavy pieces for summer? You pretty much always touch on it in your "what I wore" posts, but I’d love more in depth examples.
