1. Lilly Pulitzer on sale at Pottery Barn
Lilly Pulitzer is an American apparel and textile brand that does BOLD, prints, and even though I can see how royal blue and hot pink decor can come across as tween/teenybopper…I don’t care. 🙂 Where does it say you have to give up teal just because you’re an adult?
But I digress…
Lilly Pulitzer collaborated with Pottery Barn last summer, and now almost everything they created together is on sale.
I snagged this cute quilt. It was originally $250, but on sale now for $50!
2. Bliss Poetic Waxing Hair Removal Kit
Man, I gotta say this again: This wax is really, REALLY good. Doesn’t matter if you’ve got a downy layer of peach fuzz on your upper lip, or a mustache to rival a circus ringmaster’s, Bliss wax zips off everything, and it does so without drama.
I usually de-fuzz in the morning right after breakfast. I warm up the mug, which is filled with wax, in the microwave (it takes about 5 minutes because my microwave, like Taylor Swift, was born in 1989), smear on a thin layer, wait a minute or two for it to dry, then zip! Smooth as a Sphinx.
3. My morning citrus concoction
I’ve been drinking this every morning for a couple weeks. It’s comprised of a Super Orange Emergen-C in a huge cup with a splash of Trader Joe’s tangerine juice.
It’s sweet but not too sweet, and I get a good dose of vitamins.
4. Destination Wedding
I watched this very weird but charming romcom mostly because I truly believe that one day Keanu Reeves, who I’ve been in love with since ninth grade, will come to his senses and ask me to marry him (hopefully El Hub won’t mind). It also stars Winona Ryder, so talk about all your ’90s dreams come true, ha ha!
Anyway, watching the movie is kinda like watching a play, because the entire thing is dialogue between the both of them. No other characters.
Well…there is also a mountain lion, who plays a pivotal role, but I’ll leave that for you to discover. 😉
I should warn you — the movie starts off really slow, and you might even be a little annoyed at the beginning (I totally was), but I’m glad I stuck with it because I laughed so hard in several places.
5. Doing eye looks with a single brush
I’ve been doing this all week long (chalk it up to laziness), usually with a domed brush like the MAC 217, where I clean the bristles between shadows by running the brush head back and forth across a paper towel.
