Well, I promised the shiny happy things kind of blogs would be back and here they are! Another fresh batch of Things I Love! And this one is oh-so-good!!!!! (Not that all arn’t, right?!)
Lipstick Queen Chinatown Pencils
I know I am usually a die hard Nars lip pencil kind of gal, but since I had to run into Ulta the other day because of a nail polish emergency (those totally happen!) and since Ulta refuses to carry Nars (I usually boycott Ulta for this very reason!), I was forced to peruse the other offerings for lip pencils. It seems all the major brands are getting on board with the chubby lip pencils and I LOVE it! I’m pretty sure I will never use an actual lipstick again! So, in my perusal, I came across the Chinatown pencil lines by Lipstick Queen (coincidentally, I really love their lipsticks too) and I fell in love with the ‘Catalina’ shade! As a lipstick loving gal, I am constantly on the hunt for ‘perfect bold reds’ and ‘perfect soft pinks’, the Catalina Chinatown pencil fits that latter category to a T! Super subtle for everyday wear and I’m pretty sure I’m now going to wear it everyday until forever! Bonus! They come with their own pencil sharpener too!
Little did I know, when my friend Jordan told me she was going to take me to one of her favorite boutiques in Seattle, that I would be walking into the very shop of the Moorea Seal brand that I have been lusting over for months via their Instagram! Color me oh-so-obsessed! I have been wanting so much of the gorgeous jewelry for a while now, so, of course, I went a little crazy and bought everything shiny in sight…and a beanie (because, hey, it’s fall and I was in Seattle) and some fun flash tats (because, helloooo, shiny!). I may or may not have added a bunch more of their pretty pieces to my Christmas list when I got home…okay, yeah, I totally did!
Sydney Hale Candles
Soooo, I recently became hooked on searching through the Huckberry site for all things that the spouse would totally love (Christmas and her birthday are coming!)…and I found some fab finds for me too! Who knew I’d find something on a site geared towards all things vaguely outdoorsy…and not just in the tailgating section! They have a home goods section of their online storefront and I fell head over heels in love with these Sydney Hale candles. Probably because I am just coming off of that PNW roadtrip and still obsessed with the incredible smells of the redwoods and sea spray and everything combined that the scents of these candles were right up my alley right now. (And, we generally love all the woodsy/bonfire types of candles at the Miller homestead.) And, with pretty design to boot? Count me in! Andddddd they donate 10% of their profits to dog rescue?! Yup, I’m pretty sure I just found my new favorite candle company!
I know you are probably wondering where all the photo goodness is from my #ambreetakesthecoast adventures are, but I swear it will be worth the wait after Brienne and I collaborate on the photo collection from our travels! So much pretty coming! But, I can already tell you I need to do this trip again! Maybe multiple times! I left a piece of my heart in the Pacific Northwest and I have to go back to explore it more! Probably with Bree, since it’s hard to get my spouse to leave state lines, but it would be amazing to bring her too. I think K would love it so! The smells. The sounds. The peace in the air. I have to get back there sooner than soon!
