2018 Emmys Red Carpet

Kristen Bell in Solace London

I’m not crazy right? The Emmys are usually on Sundays? Having it on a Monday completely threw me off my game and now it is 9:30 PM and I’m putting this post together. Honestly though, we all know I have OCD issues and there’s no way I could even get to bed without doing this first. And then of course picking my 5-8 favorite looks and adding them to my Instagram story. You’re welcome. Happy Monday!

I’m loving all of the classic black and white looks from the evening. There are also the tiniest details from two different shoes and belts that are so thin that you almost miss them. One take away from the night? Barely there makeup and slicked back hair for an effortless look. What are your favorite looks?

bareMinerals’ Recycling Program

The amount of money a woman spends on makeup and beauty products a year sometimes astounds me. It’s the type of thing that gets me a little anxious. For that reason alone, I’m that girl that will use up every last drop even when it looks like there is nothing left. I feel so guilty tossing something out even if I know I’m not going to get any more benefit out of it. I received an email from bareMinerals this week announcing that they were launching a recycling program.

Bring in your empty empty makeup and skincare containers to any bareMinerals boutique and receive points towards your next bareMinerals purchase. They don’t need to be a product of bareMinerals and can come from anywhere as they are accepting all brands. If you’ve finished up an entire product, you might as well get something for it in return, right? I love the idea of makeup and beauty recycling programs and am excited to share the news! For a list of other brands that are doing similar programs with other benefits, click here.

Back Home By The Water

Sweater – Zara / Purse – Forever21 / Pants – Aritzia / Sneakers – Adidas

You guys, how good are these photos taken by my Instagram Dad?! I returned home this past March and we did brunch in Edmonds. It’s not quite Seattle, but it’s a cute and quiet neighborhood that feels homey to me. We’re also not upset about this backdrop. I love this mini shoot because we were having a big family brunch, but before going in my dad was game to shoot and I happened to be borrowing a chic Zara sweater from my mother. One of the best parts about returning home? Never needing to pack a full suitcase because Mom and I share the same size. That means I can leave my jackets behind since they take up the most space in my suitcase and pull from her closet instead. Not seen in this shoot, my dad shouting at me to “smile” and me giving him these looks instead. I’ll cut him some slack; it was the first time after all!

Song of the Day

Jesse McCartney – Wasted

This little bop showed up in my Spotify Release Radar Friday and I’ve been loving it ever since. Younger me saw Jesse McCartney as totally basic especially when he was on that show “Summerland.” However, I’ll never forget that he defined my high school senior year with “Leavin'” I’m all for this. He’s still got it.
