Today, I’m sharing some things I’m loving.
I love finding new things that people share, so I hope you find something new here too. Nothing on today’s page is sponsored in any way. Just passing along my finds. 🙂
I was hoping to find some clothes for my Spring Break trip to Amsterdam and Paris. I had no luck with that, which if you follow me on Instagram, you already know.
I decided to finally check out the store Altar’d State (it’s not where I was when I was texting my husband-and I actually like the store that shall remain nameless, it just wasn’t happening today). My girlfriend was the one who had told me that I should check it out. I had no luck on the clothing front (mostly because I was already frustrated by my previous luck), but the store had so many things other than clothes that were right along the lines of things I love. I also like that they are a company that focuses on Giving Back.
This was so hilarious that I texted the photo to the girlfriend who had told me about the store. We got a good laugh out of this piece of home decor.
I was also in love with this coffee mug. The inner rim said “Enjoy Life”. Even better, it said it on both sides, which is awesome for us lefties. I may be heading back to add this to my collection of coffee mugs.
Afterwards, I decided to go to Sephora to pick up some mascara. I don’t usually wear more than mascara and lip gloss. This is mostly because once I got over the age of 30, makeup became a little more overwhelming. I didn’t know what colors I needed, how to deal with fine lines…etc. There are times when I’d like to wear makeup. Especially now, with my trip to Europe looming and turning 40 this coming fall. Today, I decided to ask for help picking colors. Everyone who works there always has amazing makeup (I’m pretty sure this is a must in a makeup store!). Sephora has this amazing little tool that takes photos of your skin and helps tell what colors are best for your skin tone. Then Shauntel helped me pick out all the items I was looking for, even showing me the best way to apply them as well.
One of the items I bought was this cute blush by Too Faced. This is their Love Flush- 16 hour blush in Justify My Love. I usually steer away from pink blushes, but I really liked how it looked on my cheeks. Plus, what’s not to love about a heart-shaped compact.
I’ve also been obsessed with Alex and Ani bracelets for some time. These are just a few in my collection.
I also come across lots of amazing Instagrammers. I had a hard time picking who to share because there are so many who share spectacular photos I decided to share two from the Virginia region who were some of my earliest followers when I began a public IG last year. Most of their photos tend to be landscapes, which is what most of my IG photos tend to be. They are far superior in what they share and have wonderful feeds.
Check them out, I don’t think you’ll be disappointed.
Lastly, a song I’m loving this week:
I hope you all have exciting… or relaxing… plans for your weekend. 🙂
Let your light shine!
