    I own the Audrey Brooke Nary flats in cognac and absolutely adore them. After the usual break in period, they’re perfectly comfortable to wear if you’re on your feet all day, and they hold up pretty well against normal wear/tear/scuffing.

    Boy Brow is my dream brow product!! It’s a great alternative to the heavy powder brow that just doesn’t quite coordinate with my everyday make up. The only downside is that a tube doesn’t last long (and this coming from a person who almost never runs out of any product and ends up throwing things away due to age).

      I was shocked how small the tube was. I wonder what the reason is…

    Re: styling the leather dress, try a faux shirt collar (some retailers call them a bib) underneath.

    I wish you luck on the Hoka running shoe purchase! I attempted them last year around this time and just couldn’t make them work. My marathon running brother says they have completely resolved his plantar band pain though. So I just recommend that wherever you buy them, as with any running shoe, make sure you can return them after trying them out if needed!
