The MVP of my makeup collection had to be the Urban Decay Naked palette - packed with super wearable shades, this palette is always my go-to for any occasion. Being a girl who adores makeup, I have accumulated and tested countless shadows over the years, and although NARS and TooFaced palettes come in and out of my life, I always go back to my Naked palette- trusted and true!
Naturally, after quite some time of wearing the Naked palette shades, I was ready for a change- I had heard of the Naked 2 palette but didn't think I needed it, thought it was too similar blah blah... Well I finally broke down and caved in- introducing the Naked 2 palette!!! My dreams have come true with the beyond amazing little sister to the original Naked palette! Boy am I LOVING this new palette- I am already so so obsessed!
Here is the low down on the uber fashionable and popular Naked 2 palette: This palette features a dozen pigment-rich taupe and gray-beige neutrals, plus five exclusive, new shades. This set contains 12 Eyeshadows in the following shades:
Foxy (cream bisque with matte finish), Half Baked (golden-bronze with shimmering finish), Booty Call (shimmering cork), Chopper (copper shimmer with silver microglitter)
Tease (creamy pale brown with matte finish), Snake Bite (dark bronze shimmer with metallic base), Suspect (pale golden beige with shimmering finish), Pistol (light gray-brown with shimmering finish)
Verve (oyster with shimmering finish), YDK (cool bronze shimmer with metallic base), Busted (deep brown with shimmering finish), Blackout (blackest black with matte finish)
The palette also includes a travel-size Lip Junkie Lipgloss in Naked and a double-ended, cruelty-free Good Karma Shadow/Crease Brush.
Urban Decay's packaging takes on a modern feel in Naked 2 with an art-school-inspired tin case and a hinged lid. Compare Naked2 with first Naked palette—packaged in warm, rich brown velvet with gold foil lettering—and you won't be able to resist owning both.
Sorry Naked, you will always remain in my heart, but I have officially started my love affair with Naked 2!

Attention prepsters- I have found the holy grail of prep! Introducing C Wonder- I am in love! I have been on C Wonder's email list for quite some time, but had not purchased anything yet. While in the Hamptons this past weekend I stumbled upon the bright and fun C Wonder store- basically a candy store for preppy chic fashionistas. I found way too many things that I loved- and of course bought up lots of the store, including monogrammed sweaters, shoes, accessories, jewelry, and more. You'll see plenty of posts with my goodies in the coming few weeks!
Now on to one of my favorite summer prep purchases of this past weekend, this C Wonder golden anchor necklace! How fabulous is this? And you can tell it is made really well, it looks so expensive, preppy and summery! I ave already worn it a few times and have received tons of compliments. This stunning necklace is so perfect to pair with anything from a simple black dress to a fab Lilly frock.
You can purchase this anchor necklace at C Wonder (in stores) Retail price: $78
