I’m back 🙂 I took an unexpected hiatus from the blog the past two weeks because frankly I was overwhelmed. My grandma was sick (she is doing better now!), two different freelance jobs took more of my time that I had anticipated. I lost a little inspiration too. Happy to say that has all changed and I’m excited to share my favorites from the week with you today!
I was excited to finally try out Lipsense this past week thanks to my mom attending a lip & sip party. I first saw this product from one of my favorite bloggers, Twist Me Pretty. I thought it was so cool how she would rub her lips and no color would come off on her finger. So when my mom brought home an extra shade for me to try I was ecstatic. I think I have to practice more with the layers because I felt like later in the day the color wasn’t as strong. The alcohol that stings your lips when you first put it on will take some getting use to as well. Though, I’m happy to report that the color doesn’t come off on anything. Has anyone else tried Lipsense?
The Summer Solstice is always a favorite for me every year. I especially love when it’s a sunny day. I try to stay outside and soak up the sun for the longest day of the year.
I swear one of these years I’ll get back to Stongehenge for the solstice celebration.
Summer in a Bottle Wine
Ok how did I not know about this Rosé?! Summer in a Bottle? That’s right up my alley and it tastes just as good as you think it would. My sister brought it home this past weekend after visiting a friend who’s obsessed with it. I’m so glad she did, it’s my new go-to wine. Look at the bottle. #PureHappiness
All Things TV
My head is exploding from all my excitement and sadness over all things tv this week. First off, although it has to happen, PLL ending this Tuesday after 7 years is breaking my heart. I don’t even care who A.D. is, I’ll miss watching these girls friendships and outfit choices each week. When a TV show that you’ve watched for many years is ending, do you ever start to think about what you were doing/how you were when it started? Or am I the only crazy lol?
I’m a huge fan of The Challenge on MTV and this week was the finale of the Champs vs Pros. It was a watered down version of The Challenge, but I have to say it was fun watching professional athletes try and compete in these types of challenges.
I cannot even handle the new Game of Thrones trailer that dropped on Wednesday. Seriously is it July 16th yet?! This show is on another level.
I’ve been practicing meditation for over a year now with the Breathe App and finding it helpful as a calming tool in this hectic world we live in. I came across an article in the New York Times recently about a new space opened in NYC called Inscape that is dedicated to meditation, relaxation and stress relief. I got to try it out last night with a 30 minute Mindful Meditation class if you will and it was a rejuvenating experience. I’ll have more of my thoughts in a post in the coming weeks.
I have to say I’m really passionate about all those favorites from the week lol 🙂 I hope everyone has a fabulous weekend!
