Favorite Date Spots in Raleigh

How was your week? Mine felt a little scattered by a few different things but I’m glad it’s Friday!

I shared a round-up of my go-to concealers on the blog this week, as well as a walk-through on Instagram Stories. Do you follow me on Instagram? There is a lot of beauty content, quick how-to’s, etc. there!

In order to stay organized, I love using Evernote. I have the app on my phone, and it will sync up with my desktop computer as well. So, for example, I can create a grocery list while sitting at my computer, and then access it on my phone when I’m at the store. I love that.

I’m listening to The Unhoneymooners by Christina Lauren, and only have a few hours left. I’ve enjoyed it so far, it’s a very easy listen/read. I’m reading Signal Fires by Dani Shapiro on my kindle and very much enjoying that. . . although I cannot figure out where it’s going to go!

I’m so glad I picked up reading again, I used to read endlessly as a child and then neglected it for several years. I shared some thoughts on the books I read last year, in case you’re looking for something new!

Doesn’t this dress look truly perfect for summertime? We may hit 80 degrees here in Raleigh next week and I AM READY!
