TGIF, you know what I mean!? This week felt like an eternity but I’m glad it’s Friday and am looking forward to a fun weekend ahead! We’ve got a date night planned and have some beautiful weather on tap.
Luke shared on IG stories that we are heading to the Bahamas in February. This will be our very first trip as a family of 5 to a location that is not a family members’ home, and I’m so excited to go somewhere new! My brother and his wife, my sister and her husband, and my parents are all going on this trip together!
In light of traveling to a warm destination, I’ve done a little bit of shopping for some outfits or accessories to wear while we are there. I found a really cute swimsuit coverup that is a wrap skirt to wear with the black swimsuit that I just got from LOFT(currently 40% off!). I also tried a pair of sandals from Amazon that looked really cute, but they were a little tight between my toes so I’ll be sending them back.
I also have this pretty cover-up to wear over swimsuits too!
It seems like leopard and animal print are sticking around this spring, so I also grabbed this tank top from Amazon to wear on our trip.
In IG stories this week I talked about whether your Shampoo and Conditioner should match, and I also shared my idea for breaking down Rachel Green’s hairstyles from seasons 1-10 of Friends. I truly did not expect to get the response that I did from your interest in that idea! My DMs were flooded with enthusiastic “yes!!!!!” messages! I’m definitely going to get started on that blog post!
One last note about IG stories: I asked a few weeks ago what “beauty thing” you wanted to master this year and the response was overwhelming. I asked Amanda to scroll through and round up some of the most common topics and here is what that list looks like.
Contouring, curling hair and getting it to stay, eyeliner and eyeshadow application, winged eyeliner, everything and anything about eyebrows, skincare routines, fake lashes, under-eye concealer application, 5-minute makeup, picking the right lipstick shade, doing a blow out at home
It was interesting to see how many of the topics fell into the makeup realm! I’ve covered a lot of these topics but I’m working on a way to refresh those posts or videos so you can learn how to master those areas!
Some other links and loves this week. . .
This is a really cute backpack for $39.99 that would be great for a travel day or even a diaper bag.
I’ve always loved a blunt haircut.
My skin is so dry, especially in the wintertime, that I’m very tempted by this new foundation from Estee Lauder.
I have been loving my new Late’s pjs. They are in the cutest print and are made of the softest Modal fabric. I find them to run fitted, but true to size.
Have a great weekend!
