Do you have dry skin? It can be so frustrating. No matter how much water you drink and how religiously you use your moisturizer it can be difficult to deal with. I found this product at Nordstrom. I started using it every single day. The instructions state to use it once at night and again in the morning. This. Stuff. Works! It works so well I decided to use every other day, and only at night. A little goes a long way, and this bottle could easily last a year. Making it worth the price tag. It’s hard to have pretty skin if it’s dry. I wanted to share this product with you just in case you have yet to find something that actually makes a difference. One that makes your skin feel better.
I just saw that it’s sold out at Nordstrom, Sephora, Neiman Marcus, and Bergdorf Goodman. Apparently this product has quite the fan base. My link will take you to the Kate Somerville website, where they still have some left.
The shoes that I wore for the perfect T-shirt shoot are on sale at Anthropologie. They have about 4 different sizes left but are selling fast!
Hey y'all, I hope you had a great weekend! I think I went to HG Sply 3 times in 36 hours. The kale salad and lemonade are my favorite. I also got to spend some time with friends, both new and old. It was a really good weekend.
Alright, let's talk about this jumpsuit. I saw it online a couple months ago and thought that it was adorable. My plan was to wait for it to go on sale. One day I was looking at beauty products from Goop and there it was! On sale! It was one of those situations where it's final sale, only 1 remaining. The size listed was a size I can wear, but only on a good day. Should I take a chance and order it or keep waiting to see if other retailers mark it down? I guess I could exercise, maybe go on walks in the evenings if it doesn't fit...(these are the things that go through my head when I find something I like). I decided to order it. They delivered it to Dallas. I opened the package and saw that what they sent was one size smaller than the size listed on the Goop website. Oh Lord. I was so sad! I waited two whole days to even try it on. I wanted it to fit, but knew that I had to keep it either way. Final sale and all. Turns out that the tag must be wrong, because it fits. For the record, I was prepared to start walking in the evenings if it didn't.
The good news for you is that another retailer just marked it down, 40%! You can click on the picture below to be taken to that page to shop. They still have sizes Small, Medium, Large, and Extra Large.
The Rebecca Taylor La Vie line has some really cute jumpsuits this season. These are a few of my favorites:
I found this navy blue La Vie jumpsuit on sale at Nordstrom. The navy blue jumpsuit has sleeves, which a lot of women prefer.
The pink and white earrings that I'm wearing are Brynn Hudson. I've linked some similar earrings of hers below:
La Vie is a line that’s under the Rebecca Taylor brand. NYC cool meets Parisian chic, according to them. I wasn’t sure whether to get this dress in white or navy. If you get the navy dress you could wear it year round, with tights once the temperature drops. It’s one of those dresses you can easily keep for five years.
You could say that I'm sad that it didn't work out.
Now I'm left with that old familiar feeling of doubt. Doubt and the fear that I might not ever find what I'm looking for. Does it even exist?
You fall in love and you're supposed to be together forever. Well, that’s what I thought. It turns out that life and love are complicated and you can't always make it work. You can try and pray as much as you possibly can, but it doesn't always end with a happily ever after. It took me 22 years to find love and it took me a long time to accept the fact that what I wanted the most, wasn’t meant to be. Now what?
Bad dates. So many bad dates. Then great dates. Delicious dinners. Nice wine. Fancy vacations. At the end of all those dates (good or bad) I always find myself worrying. Analyzing everything. Over thinking and terrified that I'll end up with the wrong one. What if I choose the wrong person? It's not like a car, that can be switched out. Or a bad hair day that will eventually come to an end. It's your partner FOR LIFE. Heaven help me.
I’m not very good at taking the time to be social. Sure I have friends, but I've never been the type of girl to have someone around all the time. I don't think I really want someone around 24/7. My somewhat extreme independence means that when I'm in a serious relationship, that person is my best friend. When the relationship ends, I lose my best friend. I think that's the part that hurts the most. Well, that and realizing that not everyone has good intentions. Not everyone is honest. In a world of endless options, dating has become a bit like my dream wardrobe. Never-ending.
So this is where I am today. I need to keep these things in mind:
Trust in the Lord.
Trust in His plan.
Trust in His timing.
Don't doubt yourself.
Don't fall for someone's potential (if you've never listened to Danielle Bradbery’s song Potential, you need to).
Try to be more understanding and less selfish.
Dating is difficult, but I won't give up. Not yet. So, bring on the bad dates.
Last week I asked the following question: What color eyeshadow looks best on people with dark brown eyes? I think I've used some shade of champagne, ivory, or gold since the 7th grade. It was time for a change. Quite a few people reached out and told me to try purple. I headed to NorthPark to find purple eyeshadow. After looking at a few different options, I decided to try Mac, Ready to Party. It's a light shade of purple, almost lilac. I used it for church this morning for the first time and it's really pretty. What color eye shadow do you use?
The hat is from Preston & Olivia. It's available in MineralGreen, DesertSand, or Azalea.
This t-shirt has almost 300 reviews. The reviews and the great price made me buy it in neon pink almost three years ago. I bought that pink t-shirt and a pair of silver pants to wear together for a weekend getaway. Looking back...maybe the neon pink and silver combo was a bit much. That’s ok. I was really proud of that outfit. Fast forward a few years and here I am with the same shirt, different color. I tried to go with a neutral this time. Less neon, ya know? It’s on sale right now for $17 if you use the code HOORAY when you check out. The warm canary option is cute, and so is deep peri. Of course they have it in black, white, and grey. Hope you have a wonderful weekend!
