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.
Thank goodness the weather has finally warmed up, I’m ready to store away my winter clothes and bring out my summer outfits! This summer I’m really into bright colors and patterns. As I’m preparing my packing list to Vegas in August, I noticed that the pieces I’m bringing/buying all fall within this trend:
One of my biggest gripes with applying foundation/bb cream is that no matter why type/brand I use, they always make my skin feel super dry :( On top of that, it feels like the product is just sitting on my face and overall it’s just not a pleasant feeling! This is the main reason why I don’t wear foundation much, but thanks to this new product, these problems are all gone!
