See Ya In Mid-May!

We’re overdue for a catch-up, friends! Since my last post, I’ve sat down with my Macbook on a handful of nights and blankly stared at my WordPress dashboard for a good 15 minutes before shutting it down to veg out with YouTube beauty videos and old episodes of The Office. I have a big list of post ideas, but can’t seem to wrangle the energy to churn ’em out. We’ll get there!

    Making : snapchat stories with behind-the-scenes peeks at the flower shop, my favorite style and beauty stuff, and lots of Doak updates. ;)  Username: keiralennox Drinking : bucketfuls of iced tea in my Corkcicle tumbler. It keeps ice frozen for 9+ hours, and I don’t go anywhere without it lately. Watching : a lot of YouTube beauty vlogs. I love to pour a glass of wine at night and watch makeup and skincare tutorials and reviews. It’s a great way to unwind, and my makeup game is better for it. Ruth Crilly, Tati, and Lisa Eldridge are my top 3 right now. Reading : The Fever by Megan Abbot. Enjoying: some amazing weather. C and I love to come home from work, pour a couple cocktails, and sit outside with Doak or walk around the neighborhood until the sun goes down. Listening : to “Mellow Morning” on Spotify. Working on: my spring wardrobe shopping list. (More on that soon!) Loving : Nars Velvet Matte Skin Tint. It sets to a beautiful natural finish and stays put all day without powder or primer.
