Tomorrow is J.Crew event day!! Please join me at J. Crew Mercantile at Bradley Fair from 12-4! I just went last night to check everything out and there are cuuuuuuuute styles that just released. Super adorable trendy options and the staples I’ve come to love over the years. Also, snacks. And discounts. (Also, they have men’s and kid’s clothes too!) I’m excited, in case you can’t tell!
Alright, on to my favorites. It’s still insanely hot (ugh) so I’ve been skimping on full lipstick and using my favorite lip balm products: here, here and here (drugstore!!!!). All three are a light pink hue, so not super dark and flattering on all skin tones! (I also adore these in the winter to help combat dry lips!)
You know I’m all about the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale going on, and while I love all of the pre-fall items, this super cute top comes in navy stripe (yay!) and white and is under $21. Mine just arrived and it’s adorable. (I ordered a small and it’s true to size.) This sweatshirt, however, is insanely soft, but I haaaaaaaaated it once it arrived.
I got Alexander this Star Wars sweatshirt and he loves it (as do I), but I totally wish it came in adult sizes. I want one!
This is the easiest hairstyle EVER. I did this for my friend Carol’s wedding a few weeks ago and I LOVED it. It’s pretty idiot proof, trust me! It’s also a great option during this summer heat! If you don’t want it to look as formal- just pull out a little hair around your face, or make the updo looser.
This bacon cheese dip needs to happen in my life. I laughed because on the video they added bacon TWICE. That’s my kind of dip.
House stuff is getting REAL! We have a basement and they backfilled the dirt up to it and we’re preparing to frame it up! Eeeeeek!!!! Also, I found this pin on Pinterest and now I’m ready for Christmas! Ha, since it’s not going to be ready until February, I have to look forward to Christmas 2018.
Ian is already preparing for my ridiculousness. OH! And speaking of seasons I love, Bath & Body Works is having a buy one get one free on their 3-wick candles and this scent is my favorite for fall. Everyone loves a BOGO!
Now, if you need me, this next week I’ll be packing and moving to the rental! Yikes, yikes, yikes. Say prayers for me, guys. Also, I’m going to decorate for fall the second we get into the rental. No, really. I’ll have pictures. 😉
