1. Lime-flavored ANYTHING
Forget about lemons. Limes are where it’s at, man.
So sour… So good! I was into key lime pie a few weeks ago (haha, I know, I shift gears often), but now I’m all about lime candies and — OOH! — limeade!
It’s like lemonade but made with limes (obvs). There’s a place in town called Rustic Bakery that makes a GREAT limeade that’s nice and tart with a good bite to it, and sometimes I’ll get one there with lunch.
In fact, I’m drinking one right now. 🙂
Well…I was drinking one, but I just finished it! *slurp*
2. Clinique Cheek Pop in Ginger Pop
Current favorite blush right hurr. This pop is a real gem. It’s a $22 peachy brown nude in Clinique’s permanent line, and it buffs out beautifully on cheeks.
Lasts all day, too.
I guess I forgot about it for a while, but I recently re-discovered it while “shopping” in a drawer.
3. Hourglass Femme Rouge Lipstick in Vintage
Another beauty I hadn’t worn in a hot minute, but I’m making up for that now!
Doesn’t this pinkish brown have kind of a ’90s vibe to it? (I wore it in yesterday’s winged liner tutorial). I love how this neutral/nude works with darker skin tones, especially (if you’re a lighter lass, check out Hourglass Grace).
4. George Michael’s Freedom ’90 video
Speaking of the ’90s, I read a really interesting story in the August issue of Allure about this video, which stars some of the biggest supermodels from the era (apparently, it took a while to get Linda Evangalista on board).
Like, did you know that it was shot by David Fincher? Yeah, the guy who directed The Social Network, The Curious Case of Benjamin Button, Fight Club and Gone Girl? I had no idea!
The article talks about what went on behind the scenes while they were shooting the video, like how in Cindy Crawford’s bathtub scenes, there was no water in the tub, and she was propped up on a box so her head would hang just right over the edge.
I love the song, too! Keep it on deck if you ever have to leave a sh*tty job.
Yes, I speak from experience.
5. Mossimo Yoga Capris
I found these Mossimo Yoga Capri Leggings last weekend at Target, and all I have to say is, “Where have these been all my life?!”
They’re soft, comfy as all get-out and only $14.99! I bought a gray pair, which I plan to wear during bouts of high-intensity relaxation in my house.
Gonna go back soon for the black!
So, capri pants… For everyday, out-and-about wear, I’m not a big fan of the way they look on me, but I’m totally OK with them for working out, yoga and for lounging around.
Weird, I know. I think it has something to do with the more fitted look of most workout capris? They make me feel less like I’m…about to leap out of a clown car.
What are some things you’ve been loving lately? Any of them from Target? Inquiring minds want to know. 🙂
