What is it about the spring that makes me want to channel my inner Martha Stewart? I volunteered for dessert duty for our family Easter lunch, and whipped up these dirt cups in crystal jelly jars. They make me so happy!

Jamie Paige, one of my favorite beauty vloggers on YouTube, did a recent video featuring her subscribers’ least-favorite makeup products with super helpful tips on how to them work. Check it out if you have a few products gathering dust in your makeup drawer that could use some fresh perspective.

I ruined my blush suede mules last week — it was a sad day — and I need a replacement because I just can’t imagine spring without them. I found this Dolce Vita pair for $50 and as soon as I’m finished with this blog post, I’m pulling the trigger on them.

Cupcakes & Cashmere recommended Dax Shepard’s new podcast, Armchair Expert, and I’m so into it. The episode with Kristen Bell is a great place to start: I enjoyed Dax and Kristen’s thoughts on social media and comparison hangovers, as well as Kristen’s life philosophy of ‘happiness vs. suffering’ and how it shapes all of her life/career decisions.

Guys. Season one of Riverdale is my current guilty Netflix binge-watch. It’s like Pretty Little Liars, old school 90210 and all your favorite dramatic high school 90s movies had a baby. I’m hooked!

What kind of friend are you? ManRepeller dove into how your Myers-Briggs personality type may influence your role in your friend group, and it’s so interesting! I’m an INFJ and found my assessment pretty spot-on.

I bought this nude lipstick on Kendi’s recommendation and I’m loving it for the season. And the rose gold packaging is so luxe and fancy!

Tera found a perfectly chic laptop backpack and it’s FORTY DOLLARS. Run, don’t walk, to her post for the Amazon link.

  • 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
  • I jumped on board with @kendieveryday’s #30x30remix! For the next month, I’ll mix-and-match 30 pieces from my wardrobe into 30 weekday outfits and share them in weekly roundups on the blog.

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

  • Back to work after a relaxing weekend! But with *zero* tan to show for it; I’m never not fully-shaded and SPF’ed, wearing a giant sun hat and some kind of mumu situation on a beach.

  • Just when I thought I couldn’t love @rafanatural coconut oil bar soap more, I started using them with these natural fiber ‘soap sacks’ and leveled up.
