Get Ready With Me Coldplay Concert

8:47 AM 13 Comments

Last weekend we saw Coldplay live at the Rose Bowl for their Head Full of Dreams tour. The tickets were a surprise gift from my husband. I was thrilled because I have loved Coldplay for so long... they are one of my very favorite bands. This was my first outing after having the baby, so it was nice to do something so out of the ordinary.

Get ready and come along to the concert with me in this week's video. I do my makeup, share my outfit and show you a bit of the concert! If you are unable to see the video above, click here, look in the sidebar of this blog, or visit my channel: www.youtube.com/TheDailyConnoisseur

Here is a list of all of the makeup I used:

Armani foundation primer (I used a sample packet of this... I like it!)

Armani Luminous Silk Foundation

Benefit Fake Up under eye concealer

Benefit Boing concealer

Shiseido translucent loose powder

Urban Decay eyeshadow primer

Urban Decay Naked eyeshadow palette

Mac eye shadow as eyebrow powder

YSL Faux Cils mascara in burgundy

MAC bronzer

CHANEL blush in rose bronze

MAC Mineralize skin finish highlighter in soft and gentle

Cailyn lip stain extreme matte tint in no. 17 Absolutist (this is a great lip tint that lasts all day)

Nail polish: Essie Mademoiselle

** Please note: I ended up using my Louis Vuitton pochette as a purse because it is much smaller and compact. I wanted to be able to dance and not worry about my purse :)

My TEDx talk is featured on TED's website, in an article called, 6 talks on getting rid of stuff.

Comment of the Week

Maureen writes: I'm three weeks postpartum and just starting to feel like cooking again. This video couldn't be timed better! Thanks for reminding me of some simple, tasty homemade dinners. Planning this week's menus feels much less daunting now!

Congratulations on the birth of your baby, Maureen! I'm happy that my video last week has inspired you with your menu planning.

This week I would love to know... did you attend any concerts this summer? Who did you see? What did you wear? Do you love Coldplay? What's your favorite song of theirs? (I love too many... I can't pick just one!)

See you next week!

What's For Dinner? (One Week of Meals)

8:11 AM 26 Comments

Hello, Daily Connoisseurs. I am back from my summer break! It feels wonderful to be back. I always miss the blog when I leave. We have had such a nice summer. We have thoroughly enjoyed our "staycation" at home with the baby. He is so snuggly and cuddly and delightful, I am enjoying every single moment with him.

My oldest daughter is back to school and we are back into our routine again. The baby is very happy to go along for the ride.

While I was away from the blog, I shot this video, showing you one week of dinners in our house. This is a typical week for us, full of many family favorites.

Here was the week's menu:

Sunday: Turkey meatloaf with mashed potatoes and broccolette

Monday: Pasta marinara, spinach avocado salad and bread rolls

Tuesday: Turkey and spinach tacos on corn tortillas with salsa and guacamole

Wednesday: Cottage Pie with steamed corn and tomato salad

Thursday: Rotisserie chicken with sautéed squash and spinach

Friday: Furikake salmon with brown rice and broccolette

Saturday: Chicken nuggets with mashed sweet yam and sweet corn

Be sure to check out this week's video to see all of the meals. If you are unable to see the video above, click here, look in the sidebar of this blog, or visit my channel (and be sure to subscribe!) at www.youtube.com/TheDailyConnoisseur

I am featured in the BBC's article called, Meet the people with almost nothing in their closets.

Hello Jennifer, It would be a year ago that I watched your Ted lecture on the 10 Item Wardrobe. I was fascinated and loved the idea, so I bought and read your first book, and have been working on incorporating so many elements that you present in my daily life since then! What a joy you are! I love your honesty and transparency in your weekly messages and feel each time like I am catching up with a dear friend! Thank you Jennifer for being a voice of common sense and elegance. I am looking forward to reading your other books and hope that your message of everyday beauty continues to spread!

Dear Jen, Thank you for your kind comment. I enjoy hearing from the people who find the ten-item wardrobe via the TEDx talk. Welcome to The Daily Connoisseur community!
