I disappeared from the Internet for a minute to pour all my energy into Valentine’s Day at the flower shop. I’m back with a recap of the holiday, plus a roundup of my bookmarks from around the web, a couple recent purchases, and a few items on my spring style wishlist!
What I read this month: a luxury-health-resort-turned-nightmare, a campy thriller that kept me guessing, a modern classic set in a North Carolina marsh, a cautionary tale about the American Dream with a dilapidated house as the central character, and two very worthwhile biographies.
One of the ways I plan to hold myself accountable for my low-buy year is to share an update with all of my purchases at the end of each month. Check out my January style and beauty picks!
When I read about ‘Yoga Skin’ in Glamour two weeks ago, I was all in on the makeup technique that mimicked glowing, naturally-flushed skin straight out of a workout session. It’s exactly the kind of skin-care-first, no-makeup-makeup routine I’m really into right now, and I couldn’t wait to try it myself with the products in my makeup stash.
The banana bread recipe you need to try this weekend, my current seasonal style faves, eclectic home design inspo, and the latest project on my DIY to-do list.
