I've been craving Benefit's Hoola for a while now (I may actually buy it this time kids!). It's the perfect matte bronzer, just warm enough and not too orange, and it's ideal for contouring and adding an overall glow.

I'm not one for cutesy jewelry, but this bow ring strikes the perfect balance between quirky and chic, and I love anything with some sparkle. I want to wear this shirt to sleep and then get up and eat a midnight snack in it. Too funny. Botkier Maddie Shoulder Bag, $295 at shopbop.com,...
