Hello hello my friends, happy Friday! We are extra happy today because we are headed to the lake for the weekend! It isn’t supposed to be very warm, but I am sure the boys will still be forcing us into the lake. One of the many joys of having your children, right?! 😉 Hopping right into my favorites for the week (including the BEST new Beautycounter eyeshadow), keep reading for all the details!
I have been sharing bits and pieces about Beautycounter recently, and I am absolutely in love with the new classics Beautcounter eyeshadow palette. Beautycounter recently launched a new line of powders with a brand new formula, and trust me when I say that they are GOOD. I am by no means a makeup pro, and do not claim to be. But this palette is on par, if not better than, the other designer palettes I have used in the past. There is also a romantic palette and a statement palette, and I honestly cannot decide which one I love most. Of course, my favorite thing about these powders is that they are SAFE and have over 1,500 ingredients that they DO NOT USE. I could shout it from the rooftops how excited I am to have found high performing makeup that is also 100% safe.
5 Ways To Simplify Your Life
Did you catch my post earlier this week with easy ways to simplify your life? I have been on a major kick of purging and getting rid of unnecessary things lately. I committed not only to cleaning out my closet, but to not refilling my closet! Womp womp. I love shopping, but just hate clutter and having too many things. I am thinking about looking into a ‘capsule wardrobe’ for fall/winter. Have you ever done a capsule wardrobe? I have no idea how to begin!
Okay, I did not purchase these for MYSELF. I just don’t think I can ever find a way for Crocs to fit into my style 😉 But we grabbed Jackson this pair of shoes last week, and I am honestly surprised by how cute they are, and he LOVES them. Of course, Mike discovered that the exact same pair comes in grown up sizes, so now he has a pair, too. SALE ALERT: the grown-up pair actually cost HALF as much as the kids sizes on Amazon and a fraction of what I have seen them for in stores! I will say that I love that they are easy to clean and are perfect for use during the summer months!
Tie Front Top
Yesterday I shared one of my favorite trends of summer. These tie front tops are my absolute favorite and are universally flattering on everyone. They are basically a top that was MADE to be worn with a cute bralette! You can check out the full post with all of the details here.
Lily Jade Weekender Bag
Look for a full review coming next week, but since we are all packed for the lake I couldn’t resist sharing my FAVORITE new bag. As I talk about capsule wardrobes, Lily Jade bags really fit the bill. They are of the absolute BEST quality and materials, and I have no doubts I will use them for YEARS to come. And the style is so classic, I don’t worry about it not being ‘trendy’ in a few years! Did I mention the weekender bag is HUGE and holds everything you could need, and more!?
I hope everyone has an amazing weekend-there aren’t many weekends left of summer, so make sure you make every last moment count!
