           This week, I'm so excited to unveil the latest challenge in the Allure Beauty Blogger Awards. Challenge #4: Trend report was my favorite challenge to photograph and write about. I've structured it after my 'Inspired by Art' posts (see here). I've included preview of my post here. Do you recognize the artist from my photos? He's one of my favorites.

  1. I love those pictures so much! very inspirational *wants more*. Your post about calder red lipsticks remind me of wearing them more, we don't have any sun here anyway (feels kinda weird wearing summery corals). great post <3

    1. Thanks Claire! I have to remind myself to wear these colors more too. It's too easy for me to fall into my neutral rut. I don't like so many bright lippies, but there's something classic about a vermillion :)

  2. I love it when you do posts like this! It inspires me to do a more variety with my posts on my blog :D And of course, I'll vote for you!

  3. OMG - love, LOVE, LOVE Calder! I learned about him through my husband, the art school nerd. We visited the Miro museum in Barcelona and there was a huge Calder piece in the garden. I wanted to take it home.

    Good luck my dear, I'm so happy you are still in the running!

    1. Hi Lexi
      YAY! I love Calder too. There was a large collection of peices displayed at a museum a while back... that was so fun!

  4. Dovey your photographs this week are striking! SO beautiful and ultra modern.

    ♥ Jessica

  5. Great photos -- you are so creative! I remember studying Calder in art appreciation class in my college days :)

    1. Hi Makeup Magpie, thank you! I wish I had taken a class on Calder. Would have loved it!
