Fall Beauty Refresh

Happy Friday!  I’ve shared some of my beauty favorites with you and I thought I’d give you an update on what I’m currently using.  The timing is perfect because it’s fun to refresh your look for the upcoming season. Most of my routine has changed, with the exception of the Aveeno moisturizer and Smashbox primer which have been my go-to products for years.  I mix the moisturize with the Farsali Rose Gold Elixir oil. The Armani luminous silk foundation is my newest favorite beauty product.  It’s a little pricey but a little goes a long way so it will last a long time.  Plus, …

Fall Crushes

I know that it’s still August, but Fall is my favorite time of the year so I’m already looking forward to everything to do with it. Grab a cup a joe or whatever beverage you fancy (maybe a cold iced tea because it’s a hot summer day) and humor me while I share what I’m looking forward to about Fall.  I won’t even judge you if you sneak some pumpkin spice into it. Fall fashion Booties.  Nordstrom had their big annual sale recently so I bought these Steve Madden booties (in black) and these Hinge booties (in taupe).  It was …

Friday Favorites

Happy Friday! We finally made it to the weekend! Today I thought I’d do something a little different and share with you some of my favorite things that I’ve found while searching the internet. How cute is this scene for throwing a birthday party for a little girl?!  Heck, I’d like it even for myself! I’ve been wanting to try this lemon blueberry layer cake for so long.  Maybe I’ll make it for 4th of July. I’m obsessed with this summer outfit. In fact, I love almost every outfit that Rach wears. I get a lot of home decor inspiration …

June Favorites

Happy Wednesday!  Today, I thought that I’d share some of my recent (and random) favorite things with you. Shirts that are dresses.  I love this Express’ shirt dress so much that I bought it in black and in a print.  It’s super flattering, comfortable, and versatile.  You can wear the dress with heels for a summer wedding or with flats or espadrilles for a more casual occasion.  My husband says that this dress looks like a long shirt.  He described himself as “the opposite of someone with any fashion sense,” but he’s not wrong.  That’s why “they” (the fashion industry?) call this style a shirt …
