5 Words that Profoundly Impact my Relationship with Justin

How was your week? We celebrated my son Luke on Wednesday because he turned 5 years old! We had a really fun evening together, he opened a few presents, and we are surprising him with a little bedroom makeover this weekend!

The rest of the week was quiet and uneventful. Justin and I went out to an early Valentine’s Day dinner on Thursday night, which was lovely, and I’m looking forward to a weekend spent with friends!

How cute is this heart-shaped pizza?

Have you heard of the “stick of butter” trend?

Caralyn rounded up her favorite supportive swimsuits!

Such a gorgeous black maxi dress! And if you have a spring wedding to attend, this would be a beautiful dress to wear!

Leopard, and animal print in general, is here to stay through spring (at least!) and these espadrilles are very cute! If you are like me, you treat animal print like a neutral and you can wear these with so many different outfits!

I like having a backpack when I travel and if you are looking for one that works for travel days as well as every other day, this one comes in a variety of colors!

I love a tie-front blouse and this one from Amazon is perfect for spring!

I have these earrings by Gorjana and love that they look like they are wrapped around the ear.

Mentioned on IG stories. . .

I talked about this lip tint on stories this week. This product is a REALLY nice option for those of you who like a wash of color on your lips but don’t like the feeling of lipstick! I have the shade Love Child, it’s a really nice rosy pink. In other Urban Decay makeup news, I have been testing out the new Stay Naked Weightless foundation and really like it. The coverage and texture of the product do change depending on what application method you use, but it wears beautifully and truly looks like skin.

I’ve also been testing out the Milani Cheek Kiss blush in shade Pink Flirt. It’s a beautiful pink and very similar to NARS liquid blush in Orgasm. At $9.99 it’s more budget-friendly too!

I wore this pretty eyelet sleeve top on Wednesday and loved it. It’s a really pretty transitional piece for winter to spring.

Have a great weekend!

Would you be able to link the lipstick you mentioned on stories that you said was a nice cool pink similar to Urban decays morning after? I believe you said it was from Nordstrom and a follower suggested it to you, but I can’t remember the specifics or find it in stories anymore.

Looking forward to your thoughts on the new formula of the Urban Decay Stay Naked foundation. I have used this foundation for years and really like it. Need to buy some more. Are you using the the shade 10CP? Thanks for the weekly roundup! I really enjoy it.
