loving lately.

TGIF. One part of me feels like this week flew by, but the other part of me thought Wednesday was Thursday so it's safe to say I'm all over the place. Regardless, I am very happy the weekend is here and it's supposed to (finally) stop raining.

Here are some things I've been loving as of late:

J.Crew Gathered Carnation Earrings
99% of the time I wear stud earrings, but I recently saw J.Crew's carnation earrings and bought them in navy and white. They're super light, comfortable and currently 30% off an already cheap price--I highly recommend!

texture app
It's no secret that I'm a magazine hoarder, so when I heard of texture I thought I'd give it a go before my Vienna trip and now I'm hooked. The app gives access to all of my favorite magazines on my ipad for $10 a month. While part of me misses reading an actual magazine, the convenience and cost savings is hard to beat.

albeit cheek stain
While partaking in a bit of buzzed shopping the other weekend, I came across Albeit Cheek Stain at Anthropologie and I was immediately drawn to the bare rose color (pictured, but it's a brighter pink in person). I bought it on a whim, and I was rather pleased to find it has a lot of staying power and a really nice consistency that gives my cheeks a great flush. Buzzed shopping for the win!

Big Little Lies Soundtrack
I loved watching Big Little Lies on HBO so much and now there's a void since I finished the last episode. The soundtrack is equally great, and I plan on playing it all summer long.

Capri Blue Diffuser
The Capri Blue diffuser was yet another random Anthropologie purchase, but I'm so happy with it. You can smell it throughout the first floor of my house, and it beats constantly lighting a candle--I'll definitely be stocking up on more of these in the future.

Have a great weekend!


weekend things.

proud egg hunter.
Oh, hello! I've been planning on doing a recap of my Vienna trip (which was incredible) but I can't seem to get my act together. Maybe this week?

This weekend was a busy but good one--Friday night we did an egg hunt with my brother and his family and a certain 2 1/2 year old was rather pleased with the amount of peanut butter M&Ms that were included. We had Chinese takeout and it was so fun hanging out and catching up.

On Saturday I did a little shopping with my mom and sister--we had a great lunch and I scooped up this dress which I realize is technically a coverup, but I'll be wearing it around town (sidenote: it runs really big). My sister got this jumpsuit and it's so good: super flattering and she says it's really comfortable.

Sunday I did an early Pure Barre class and then had brunch at my parents'. We had Momofuku Birthday Cake as a pre-birthday celebration (thanks, Mom!) and it was delicious. I can't wait to eat the leftovers.

The weather was perfect and buds are finally showing on the trees. I'm so glad spring is finally here and I plan on making the most of it. Here's to a good week!
