Happy Monday! Hope you had a good weekend – I spent the first half of mine at the SAG Awards and the second half relaxing. I’m excited to share a new series I’ll be doing monthly with all of my favorite things from the past month. This month I have a little of everything: beauty, home decor and fashion in my top ten.
I’ve had my eyes on this blanket for over a year. I love the colors and texture and can’t wait until my house is done so I can have it on the couch. It’s helped keep me sane by adding some pretty into the disaster zone that is my house mid-remodel.
2. Bucket Bag
This has been my go-to bag all month. It’s the perfect size for work, but not too big if I go out after or heavy while I shop. It is such a steal at $65, but the best part is the quality is so good!
I love the idea mud masks. But until this one I hadn’t found one that actually made a difference. I love to put this one on before I take a bath and really let it sink into my skin.
I’ve been a longtime fan of Loreal’s mascaras. I used them through high school, college and beyond. I’d been switching it up lately but decided to come back around and try this one and was not disappointed. I love double brushes and the primer… it seriously helps so much!
This one isn’t a new find this month, but I still had to share. I’d been using a bb cream for the past while and decided to go back to this. I’m not a fan of a heavy foundation and this one provides just enough coverage while still staying light.
I have combination skin and it takes such a beating in the winter. A good moisturizer is key! I love how buttery this one is but it doesn’t make my skin oily. It actually reminds me of La Mer but for a fraction of the price.
I guess I should have said I was obsessed with this whole line. I’ve been really focusing on skin care this month and finding a serum I loved was important to me. I use this on my face and neck at night before applying the moisturizer. I’ve already noticed a difference.
I’d never tried a cleansing oil but it seems to be working! I typically use this one to remove my makeup and then follow with my normal cleanser. However, when I’m not wearing makeup I just use this to cleanse my face.
Something else that’s not new to me this month but I couldn’t have lived without. I swap my shoes for these babies as soon as I get home. Since they have a rubber sole I can take Mackie out to the backyard without putting regular shoes back on. I go through about a pair of these a year and sometimes even end up wearing them out to run errands.
I just got this sweater last week and have already worn it three times! It’s so comfy and I love how unique it is. I try to switch it up with different pieces when I’m bored with my wardrobe.
Thanks for stopping by – have a good Monday!
With the new year I wanted to create more beauty content and feature products I love and can’t live without. First up I thought I’d share my current favorite makeup products. I love to try out new products but am pretty
safe simple and tend to go back to my usual lineup. Recently I’ve discovered a couple new products and am happy to add them to my regimen.
I like my face to look clean and natural but I love a glow. I’ve been feeling so pale this winter so I’ve dug out my beloved bronzer. Who am I kidding, I never put it away! I love to look a little sun kissed and go way lighter in the stroke in the winter.
I’m pretty low maintenance on my eyes. To me the most important thing is mascara. I’ve blogged about this one before but it’s my fav. You can’t beat the price either and can find it just about anywhere. I don’t wear eye shadow unless I’m going out at night but when I do I like bronzey brown shades to make my blue eyes pop.
I love a bold red lip, but because my mouth is on the bigger side it mades me look a little clownish. Luckily I love a natural looking pink lip too. I’ve been using Sugar for years but recently my friend Kathleen got me into this Urban Decay color. The name doesn’t lie, I am obsessed!
Have a great weekend.. thanks for reading!
