A ‘Perfect Skin’ Deal Worth Sharing

Bobbi Brown is one of my favorite prestige beauty brands. I think of their products as the reliable, hardworking basics of my makeup collection, and I love their ethos of enhancing your natural beauty with makeup; the overall vibe is unfussy and dependable, with quality products I can throw on in the morning and not think about for the rest of the day. I bought all my Bobbi Brown products from Sephora, until I discovered…

My New Favorite Swimsuit Was A $27 Amazon Find

Black one-piece swimsuits are my summertime go-to. I buy a new one (or two) every year to add to my collection, and look for modern-meets-classic styles with different cutouts, textures and silhouettes. When C and I booked a quick beach trip last week, I needed a new suit in a hurry; after a winter of indulging in all the carbs and baked goods (no regrets) last summer’s swimwear was a tad snug. I took a…

10 Things I’m Loving Right Now

I recently discovered @things.i.bought.and.liked on Instagram, and it’s one of the best things to happen to my feed. If you love to share random ‘life-changing’ product recommendations with your girlfriends, this account will be right up your street; and her captions are *chef’s kiss* so good. About a giant tub of powdered peanut butter: “I have fallen in love with this jug of chocolate peanut butter powder. What can do you with it? What CAN’T…

I Couldn’t Resist These Velvet Slides

If I won the lottery, I would buy every single thing Loeffler Randall makes. It’s a woman-owned brand that creates beautiful accessories (you can read more about the founder, Jessie, here) and I’m completely smitten with all their timeless designs. I think they really shine with their color choices, prints and special details; you can add a Loeffler Randall shoe or bag to the most basic outfit and look thoughtfully put-together. Since I don’t buy…

  • The only thing that would’ve made this @bonappetitmag ‘white pesto pasta’ better is if @lallimusic was in my kitchen when I made it. (I re-watched her video as I prepped, which was the next best thing.) Guys, I cannot overstate the seriousness of my obsession with the @bonappetitmag YouTube channel. Most of my bookmarks on my phone are videos of recipes I want to try, and I’m slowly making my way through ‘em; kind of like ‘Julie & Julia’ but with fewer live lobsters and a little less butter.

  • Spotted this pretty blooming bush on our evening walk through the neighborhood. 
Doak got a little *too* close to the smell the flowers. 🤣
  • In today’s edition of #sundaybaking, I took on @bonappetitmag’s ‘best chocolate chip cookies’. I watched the video first — if you’re not following the @bonappetitmag YouTube channel, get on it! — then used the recipe from BA’s website to guide me through it. 
Crispy edges + a chewy center + brown butter + giant chunks of 70% dark chocolate = a pretty perfect cookie. 🍪
@moroccochris - I salute you.

  • Clearance vase jackpot at @pier1 this weekend. There are so many great colors and textures in all shapes and sizes from $10-30 with an extra 25% off. ⁣
This was the ultimate test of self-control for me...⁣
I bought 5.
  • Saturday errand style f/ two #styleonabudget favorites from last summer that are still going strong: this gingham ruffle cami I found on a clearance rack at @target + a rattan circle bag I bought for around $25 on @amazon. 
I’m killing the cost-per-wear game with these two. 😏 #whatiwore #ootd #summerstyle #stylefiles
