Some of my favorites from the sale:
A little glimpse of missing the blog hit me today. It was a a reminder of how much I miss writing. As someone from a couple different disciplines, I have a love-hate with writing. Most of my day-to-day is in finance and excel. And my education is all engineering and law.
What prompted this? A truly horrible date this evening…. more to come on that…. I reflected and turned on a favorite movie about cooking and blogging. Julie and Julia.
and it made me want back.
So, this is about beauty, so I will share that first. My find is once again by my mother. Who has sensitive eyes but somehow has found the best cream eyeshadow no less in the aisles of CVS.
I admit to being a bit of a snob. Everyone knows it. But this find makes for a sophisticated metallic. And I love all the shades. The shadows are crease-proof, smudge-proof, and fade-proof. Perfect for hot days. I love that this brand is hypoallergenic, ophthalmologist tested, suitable for sensitive eyes and contact lens wearers.
I was so excited to learn another Shopbop sale is upon us! This one snuck up on me so I don’t have much of a wishlist put together, but I did find a swimsuit and some sneakers that will be perfect for the summer.
The sale runs through April 12th. With code EVENT19 you receive 20% off orders under $500 and 25% off order over $500. Happy shopping!
As a beauty junkie, I’ve been pretty surprised to finding myself skipping foundation completely these days. My rosacea has cleared up thanks to a new Rx. And I’ve found that my skin does better when it gets a break from makeup. Instead of foundation, I have been using tinted SPF. Turning 40 sure does make me what to up my sunscreen game.
Both my mom and I love TIZO 3 Tinted Face Mineral SPF40 Sunscreen. I hadn’t purchased it in several years, but I am sure glad it is back on my regular rotation. I apply after a vitamin C serum every morning. Then skip foundation, add a little Glossier concealer under the eyes and mascara. Boom – done. My skin looks better with a more natural, paired down approach. Plus, my morning routine is significantly more efficient. Win-win.
Today through March 2rd, Shopbop is having a stellar event just in time to stock up for spring fashion. I love taking these opportunities to pick up a splurge piece that I have been saving for. Last event, I finally got my dream leather jacket that I’d been admiring for (literally) years. I wore it today for probably the 50th time – never will regret investing in an item I was sure I loved. This time around, I am considering this utility shirt and this crisp, white sweater. Happy Shopping!
