When it comes to mascara I usually go with Maybelline or a high end brand. However, I received this Revlon Bold Lacquer mascara as part of my July BeautyBox 5, and I was getting bored with my current collection, so I thought I’d give it a try.
As part of my search for the perfect planner, I’ve been watching a lot of youtube videos on how people organize and decorate theirs. Watching these videos not only gave me plenty of inspiration to decorate my planner, but also made me realize I much I miss DIY! Since I had some stuff to return anyways, I decided to visit Michael’s and see what new supplies I could pick up:
As much as I love my phone and can’t live with it, I’ve never been able to use it as my daily planner/agenda. I’ve tried all the apps – Wunderlist, Any.do, Reminder, etc – and I still prefer the old fashioned pen-and-paper way. With my new web design/development partnership growing AND my determination to turn this blog into something even bigger, I need a planner that can help me stay on top of it all!
To all my US readers, hope you had a wonderful 4th of July! We spent the afternoon at a friend’s bbq, and ventured into DC at night for the fireworks! My fiance and I would joke that it’s our tradition to always miss the fireworks, but we broke tradition this year and we’re glad we did. It was beautiful! Now that the festivities are over, it’s back to the usual activities, which always includes a little shopping ;)
I’m in one of my MUST-DECORATE-MY-HOUSE mode again, and the easiest way is to add some artwork. Seriously, not rocket science. What is difficult though is finding pieces that: 1) you actually like 2) that fit with your room’s color scheme + style and 3) that aren’t ridiculously expensive. One particular artist (collective) I’ve fallen in love with is Oliver Gal.
One of my favorite places to shop is HomeGoods, so I was absolutely ecstatic when one opened up 5 minutes away from me. I’ve lost track of the number of things I’ve bought there, but during one of my recent trips I caved and bought some acrylic containers for my makeup.
