This + That

Weekly Link Roundup January 29 |
  1. I tried a sample of this vibrancy-boosting mask from Sephora this morning. First impression: it felt like I was spreading orange marmalade on my face. But when I removed it with a warm damp washcloth 10 minutes later, my skin felt balanced, soft and, dare I say, glowy?
  2. Speaking of skin care, I think I just used the last pump of the most expensive moisturizer I’ve ever purchased and I want to cry because: a. I don’t want to go a day without it, and b. I’m going to have to buy it again.
  3. A #CuteAnimalTweetOff is exactly what the Internet needed last week.
  4. Indiana dropped the mic on all those blogger and editor listicles about “simplifying” life.
  5. Here’s what 5 cult drugstore beauty products look like on 5 diverse women.
  6. Damsel in Dior spilled all her Instagram editing secrets in a helpful video tutorial.
  7. If financial fitness is one of your goals for 2017, there’s an app for that.
  8. Is ‘sorry’ still a dirty word? I’m trying to be more mindful about the way I throw it around.
  9. Do you have a drawer stuffed with unworn t-shirts? Don’t we all? Upcycle them into cute grocery totes!
  10. I’d like this eyelash sweater in navy, please and thank you.
  11. Feeling crafty? I love this color-blocked wire basket DIY from Oh Joy. And this adorable candy heart garland by Tell Love and Party!
  12. It’s a cold and cloudy Sunday, so I think I’ll try this crockpot creamy taco chicken chili recipe for dinner.

* I’m wearing these peep-toe perforated suede booties in the photo.

  4. Love the post about simplicity. So try that simplicity doesn’t necessarily equate easy. Also who has time to read 35 books in 3 months?

    Love the booties, but don’t think I could wear them. Love the “not so simple” post.

  • Hey, girl! 👋🏻 We have a handful of these hand-painted face vases available at @lasaterflowers that are perfect for fresh flowers, succulents, or even a catch-all bowl for keys and hair ties. (We all have one of those somewhere in our home; it may as well be cute. 😉) #floraldesign #shopsmall #summerblooms #flashesofdelight

My first week of remixed outfits + my thoughts on the challenge are in today’s post at 👖
