How was your week? Mine felt like it was moving extremely fast until yesterday when Thursday actually felt like Friday so this morning feels like groundhog day.
Regardless, it was a good week and I’m looking forward to a chill weekend with very few plans!
If you are looking to freshen up a space in your home, I highly recommend using Modsy. I’ve used this service in the past for help in a room in our old house, and to help lay out my current office.
I am not loyal to any particular brand of sock for working out, but I have to say I just picked these up at Cole Haan when I was getting another pair of the laser cut liners and I am really pleased! I love that the logo on the bottom is rubbery so they are kind of non-slip.
One of the things I love about Instagram Stories is the casual mention of the things I’m using, new products, old favorites, etc. But I can guarantee that the morning after a day I share a few things I’m met with many questions from followers who cannot remember what it was that I shared. In an effort to provide answers to those questions on a weekly basis, Amanda and I are compiling as thorough a list as we can about all the things I mentioned on stories from the week prior. I hope the list below is helpful.
Pink Gap sweatshirt – I wear a medium in this and love how bright it is!
Old Navy Fleece Quilted Zip Hoodie Jacket – I wear a medium in this and think it’s a great lightweight athletic-style jacket.
Blue fleece jacket from Gap – I wear a “small tall” in this and find it to be super cozy and the prettiest blue color.
Blue athletic tank from Gap – This tank is a nice length to partially cover your bum when wearing leggings and the cross back is a pretty detail as well.
Madewell Perfect Vintage Jeans in Vintage Canvas – A pretty pair of cream denim.
Dolce Vita Chelsea Boots – Such cute winter/waterproof boots!
Grande Cosmetics Mini Lash Lash and Brow Set – I’ve seen nice results from Grande Cosmetics on my lashes and brows, and this is a good intro set.
Ole Henricksen Lemonade Smoothing Scrub – I’ve been using this scrub for about a week and REALLY love it.
Fresh Kombucha Cleansing Treatment – A gentle and calming cleansing water.
Apple AirPod Case from my sister – My sister gave me this customizable case for Christmas and I love that the clip on the back is removable.
Madewell Back Button Top – A pretty sweatshirt with button details.
Bumble and Bumble Pret-a-Powder workout spray – One of my favorite products to use on a day I don’t want to wash my hair.
Maya Brenner Necklace – I’m so happy to have my necklace back from being repaired!

Q & A from Instagram Stories:
I have trouble keeping foundation on my nose. It never seems to blend well and it wears off or turns really flakey. What can I do? Be sure to use primer, and set the makeup on your nose with a setting powder, translucent or not!
What is your favorite piece of jewelry? I really cherish my rings. I love my wedding bands and my engagement ring, and Justin gave me a ring after I had Emily as an heirloom to pass down to her one day.
Do you feel bad taking back makeup you’ve opened? No. I try my best to do as much research as possible and try to get the color that will match me the best, but sometimes it just doesn’t work out. Makeup isn’t always cheap, so I have no discomfort in returning what doesn’t work for me.
What is your favorite wireless bra for every day? I loooooooove the Tommy John Second Skin Triangle Bralette
What are your favorite Aera fragrances? White Tea, Home Hygiene Mint + Citrus, Deep Relax, De-Stress Mind, Lavendar, and Happy Green.
What is the best low budget curling iron? I have a post about my favorite hair tools under $100 here!
If you and Justin could go anywhere on a trip, where would you go? No question I would go skiing with him at Deer Valley in Utah.
