How was your week?! We had the nicest weather this week which was such a delight. We also ate dinner with Amanda and her husband at a “new to all of us” restaurant in Raleigh. It’s called Midtown Grille. We ate outside in the relaxing ambiance, and the service was outstanding. I had a Barbera to drink, though I can’t remember the exact name of the wine, and would certainly go back another time!

We watched the movie “Nobody” last weekend and LOVED it. If you need something to watch this weekend, check it out!

While we’re chatting about wine, did you catch my post earlier this week about my favorite wines?

What an adorable little travel jewelry case!

I’ve already been wearing these slides to death and I’m certain that I’ll be ordering a black pair in 5…4…3…2…

This neon edge tank at Evereve has caught my eye.

This meal is next on my list to make from Half Baked Harvest.

Questions from Monday’s Q&A Box on Instagram Stories!

You are so positive, do you ever get mad? Yes! Of course! Don’t most people?! I generally try to maintain a strong sense of relativity when I’m upset about something, though, but rarely (actually, likely never) do I turn to Instagram Stories to vent or display my anger.

Makeup refresh without starting over? Great question. I like to mist with a setting spray. Give it a few minutes, then touch up blush!

Who is your boss? You say you have deadlines? I don’t have a boss, but I have obligations that I agree to when I sign a contract with a partner/brand!

Have you ever tried laser hair removal? No, I haven’t!

What do you think about Olaplex No. 3? I think it’s great! I think that this line is overhyped a little bit. Their products are good but there are also other options out there that are great!
