Oh my, we are long overdue for my monthly Things I Love, so let’s dive right into the goods!
‘Today and To-Do’ by Day Designer
I tried the highly touted Day Designer. I got my black and white striped adorable planner, cracked it open, and poured myself into it. I was so excited to have yet another organizational tool in my life and to have it on paper instead of just in my phone and in random ‘notes’ on my phone. But, to be honest, it just didn’t work for me. I kept forgetting to check in with it on a daily basis, which then made it hard to transfer tasks onto new pages/dates and it was kind of bulky to carry around with me. Enter the new Day Designer offering, the ‘Today and To-Do’, the answer to all my problems!!! This smaller spiral bound book is not dated and is filled with page after page of schedules/to-do lists. So, you can use it when you want and how you want. And it is super cute to boot!
Finally jumped on the Birchbox bandwagon and I have to say for $10/month, it’s a delight to get a little box packed with beauty goodies to try out! I’m hooked. (And I think a Birchbox subscription would be a lovely little gift to give someone who is as beauty product obsessed as me.)
Love this new fashion magazine, PORTER, put out by the luxury fashion haven, Net-A-Porter!!!
The Horse Watches
I’m kind of a watch obsessive and this Sydney, Australia based watch company, The Horse, is speaking my love language with their drool worthy unisex watches! I have the classic in Rose Gold with Grey Leather and I never want to take it off! Next up, I’m eyeing the Original in Rose Gold with the Black Face, it’s all kinds of gorgeous! But, jump on these babies when you can because they sell out quick!
Ever since our bout with the never-ending flu, I have been picking up these Target brand vitamins. Gummy vitamins for adults in cutesy packaging, yes please! Immunity boosting for when I was sick and, more recently, the ‘Restful Sleep’ supplements. A combination of sleep inducing melatonin and other soothing things that I assume are helpful in knocking me out for the night. I’m not sure if it’s the work hard-play hard life of a working mom catching up with me or if these babies really work, but I’m sold! Two ‘Sleep’ gummies and I can barely keep my eyes open 30 minutes later.
Blinc Lash Primer + Blinc Mascara
Okay, I have been a huge advocate of Blinc Mascara for years now, it is legit the only mascara I can wear to shoot 12+ hour wedding days that doesn’t rub off and give me a black eye by the end of the day! But, recently, I popped into Sephora to replenish my supply and discovered a new Blinc product, the lash primer. And, holy moley…these two products together are like hitting a gold mine! It seriously looks like I have full lashes on and I’m totally obsessed! Especially because I don’t think I will ever master putting on fake lashes. One tip: It’s helpful to have a lash brush/spindle on hand to brush out the primer evenly before putting the mascara over it.
What are YOU obsessed with lately?! Any new music, books, products? Tell me, tell me!
