Happy Friday, y’all! It feels so good to have fresh content on the blog. Life has been crazy busy in the best possible way, so instead of being sad about the lack of time to write, I’m just embracing this busy season of life and trying to enjoy it. (And if you’re ever curious about what I’m up to, I have been burning up Instagram stories lately! Insta username is @seersuckersass.)
Today I am really excited to share with you five of the things that I have been loving lately!
Lazy gal makeup routine • Post hair cut, I actually take a little bit of time to get ready in the mornings. I don’t wear a full face every day, and my makeup routines vary by season. I’m currently really into using four makeup products. I do my brows with IT Cosmetics Universal Eyebrow Pencil, unless I am feeling extra lazy, and then I use this $3 brow gel.
Lashes are next, and I use IT Cosmetics Superhero Elastic Stretch Volumizing Mascara.
My favorite part of the process is lips. I line my lips with this lip pencil in Nude Pink (it’s only $3.50!), then follow with IT Cosmetics Vitality Lip Blush Hydrating Gloss Stain. It dries into a really pretty stain, and it’s not super glossy, so it doesn’t look strange with minimal makeup. It probably seems strange that I wear lip liner on a minimal makeup day, but I learned a few years ago that I don’t have pigmentation on the edges of my lips, and this simple step immediately makes my lips look fuller.
If I don’t have time to do liner & stain, I use IT Cosmetics Je Ne Sais Quoi Color Awakening Hydrating Lip Treatment. (c/o) I prefer the ‘Rose’ shade because it’s more of a nude than a pink.
Frankincense essential oil • I love diffusing this stuff. I have found it easy to get overwhelmed in this busy season of life, but I diffuse this in the office on days when I’m feeling very anxious, and it truly calms me down.
(Also, I had no idea how expensive this stuff was until I linked to it! It came in my starter kit, which was $160. If you want to purchase the oil or want the starter kit, you can do that through me by clicking here.)
Draper James ‘Hydrangea Row Hillsboro Dress • I’m in love with this dress. I typically buy black or navy clothing, but I need this little ray of sunshine in my life. Draper James products are a little pricey, but from my experience, their pieces are extremely well made.
Ulta After Sun Recovery Gel • If I don’t use this specific sunscreen, I get sunburned. I keep a bottle of it in my every day bag, but when I got to the pool, I realized that it was no longer there. So I used a different sunscreen, made sure to reapply, and still ended up with a burn. Ulta’s After Sun Recovery Gel was a lifesaver. Unlike the aloe products I’ve used in the past, this isn’t sticky or gooey. And it’s only $7!
Good customer service • I’ve been having horrible luck with customer service lately. In the past two weeks, I’ve had nightmares with Pizza Hut, Expedia, and World Market. So I took to social media to ask who has the best customer service y’all have ever experienced. Results: Chick-Fil-A, Disney, Zappos, Journey, Macy’s, Home Goods, Anthropologie, J.Crew, and Nordstrom!
I want to hear from you – What have you been loving lately?
I hope that you have an amazing weekend!
