Everyday Obsessions {1} - Katie Hobbs, Les Nouvelles

Here's the first in a new feature here at Pretty Mommy called Everyday Obsessions...It seems at this point in my life I'm more interested in the sort of day to day objects that sustain us rather than the showstoppers...the jeans you wear 5 days in a row without washing, those perfect sheets you look forward to climbing into at the end of the day, the recipe you make at least once a week without much I'm turned to some of my favorite tastemakers for their answers and I'm so excited to share their responses! First up is Katie Hobbs of Les Nouvelles...I've already rhapsodized about how much I love her store and all the amazing designers she carries so if you haven't had a chance to check it out I highly recommend you do so!  She's also generously offered an extra 10% off all sale items in the month of February using code PM10 at checkout...Thanks Katie!!

  1. I've been looking for the perfect black flats...will have to check it out.
    Do you use the Laura Mercier Tinted or Illuminating? I use the illuminating and I LOVE the glow.
    I have heard of the Flower Bomb perfume...must try....

  2. I was actually going to head to Nordstrom's to pick up some LM tinted...what's the difference btw that and the illuminating????

  3. The Illuminating gives a subtle glow! I recently upgraded from the regular tinted moisturizer. Highly recommend!!

  4. I love Repettos! Have been wearing them my whole life - they are amazing, timeless, wonderful shoes.

  5. I agree with is amazing! It has just the tiniest bit of shimmer. You will seriously glow. I can put this on with mascara and lipgloss and look DONE.


I'm hanging on your every word...let me know what you think!
