The Friday Catch-Up: Luxury Buys, Truffle Popcorn, and Love for Stripes


Happy Friday! I have been cleansing, BluePrint style, for the past three days [more on that to come], and I have to say that I feel great. The first two days I was tired and suffering from crazy caffeine headaches, even though I had slowly weened myself off of coffee. Despite a few teaspoons of peanut butter and a slice of avocado, I stuck with the cleanse, and now feel energized, and definitely less puffy. Weekend here I come!

Best Beauty Post: two of my favorite people to watch, Anna and Ruth, teamed up to give us the rundown of their five favorite luxury beauty buys. When I run out foundation, you better believe I will be trying out the By Terry Sheer Expert.

Style Notes: I came across The Rue Collective on Instagram and I. Am. Hooked. The girl likes black, white, stripes and plaid – my favorites colors/patterns to wear – what’s not to love?

Foodie: if you live in DC or Northern VA, run, do not walk to Screw Top [luckily I can walk as it’s only a few blocks away]. Screw Top is a wine bar that serves up delicious drinks, and even more delicious food. One of my favorite things to snack on [while waiting for food – ordering a few dishes there is a must] is the Truffle Popcorn. TRUFFLE POPCORN, PEOPLE.
