When it comes to beauty products, Mom and I are probably the two most low-maintenance people in the world. But we come by it honestly! My grandmother has washed her face with the same Pond’s Cold Cream and used the same Oil of Olay moisturizer for her entire life! We both have super sensitive skin, so when we find something that works, we stick with it! Mom swears by her Cetaphil Cleanser and Cetaphil Moisturizer and is a devotee of Estee Lauder Foundation and Chanel Le Volume de Chanel Mascara.

 

I’m also a big fan of keeping it simple. I love Acure Seriously Glowing Serum and Burt’s Bees Renewal Day Lotion. I’ve switched between so many different make-up brands over the years, but I always come back to my old faithful Bare Minerals Original Foundation and Bare Minerals Flawless Definition Mascara topped off with Mineral Fusion Illuminating Powder, which I grab at Whole Foods.

 

During the summer, we load up on Kiss My Face Spray Sunscreen, which is light, non-sticky and protects very well!

MORE ABOUT The Secret to Southern Charm Book 2 of the Peachtree Bluff Series:

Leaving fans “practically [begging] for a sequel” (Bookpage), critically-acclaimed author Kristy Woodson Harvey returns with the second novel in her beloved Peachtree Bluff series, featuring a trio of sisters and their mother who discover a truth that will change not only the way they see themselves, but also how they fit together as a family.

After finding out her military husband is missing in action, middle sister Sloane’s world crumbles as her worst nightmare comes true. She can barely climb out of bed, much less summon the strength to be the parent her children deserve.

Her mother, Ansley, provides a much-needed respite as she puts her personal life on hold to help Sloane and her grandchildren wade through their new grief-stricken lives. But between caring for her own aging mother, her daughters, and her grandchildren, Ansley’s private worry is that secrets from her past will come to light.

But when Sloane’s sisters, Caroline and Emerson, remind Sloane that no matter what, she promised her husband she would carry on for their young sons, Sloane finds the support and courage she needs to chase her biggest dreams—and face her deepest fears. Taking a cue from her middle daughter, Ansley takes her own leap of faith and realizes that, after all this time, she might finally be able to have it all.

Harvey’s signature warmth and wit make this a charming and poignant story of first loves, missed opportunities, and second chances that proves why she is the next major voice in Southern fiction” (Elin Hilderbrand, New York Times bestselling author).

 

In Good Taste: Paul Bates Architects

Paul Bates entrance

So, yesterday was the big day. 

Paul Bates living room

Well, I guess maybe not the big day. We didn’t get married or have a baby or move or publish a new book or anything.

But we bought school supplies, and, in our family, that’s a big, huge deal, a fresh start, a new beginning. 

Paul Bates kitchens

In buying school supplies, the details are everything. And what you pick is the foundation for the entire year.

In that way, buying school supplies is a whole lot like architecture

The plan is the start, the foundation for all the good to come.

And the details are everything.

As you can tell from these fabulous photos, from the traditional to the very modern, Paul Bates Architects know all about the importance of details.

Their good taste, evident in each one of these stunning houses, truly speaks for itself.

From blonde wood beams that pair perfectly with steel windows,

To library paneling so beautifully executed it speaks volumes of its own,

Each architectural detail breathes life into the space.

Indoors and out, good taste abounds. And, like back to school shopping, every space feels like a new beginning. 

Thanks so much for making Design Chic a part of your day! We always love it when you stop by!
