Away’s “Salt and Stone” Collection

 


Released just a couple of days ago, Away’s new “Salt and Stone” Collection is a traveler’s dream color palette. Inspired by cities and elements along the Adriatic Sea, the lavender and navy hues can be found in their signature suitcase and other traveling pieces. The lavender is so pretty and almost reminds me of the collection that Rashida Jones launched with the company way back when. Prices for the specific collection range from $125 – $295 USD.

“To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before” Trailer

Even after watching this trailer twice, I still have no idea what this film is about! Regardless, I am excited about another Asian American female lead. Given that the books did quite well, I have hope for the Netflix film and can’t wait to see it! Readers, have you read the book series yet? Also, have you ever written imaginary letters to your crushes?! I have never been caught dead in this situation, but it is the exact scenario that I could see myself falling into. Oh to be young and in love…?

adidas POD s3.1 – “Clear Orange”

Doesn’t it feel like we’ve been having a real crush on adidas lately? If you would have asked me a year ago if I was Nike vs. adidas, I probably would’ve said Nike! Since I acquired my own pair of UltraBoosts though, I have become a converted fan. I love my Nike flyknits, but my Boosts feel like real sneakers. They’re also like 10x warmer, but if I’m being honest – there are pros and cons to both pairs. I love them both. However, I’m obsessed with this new shade “Clear Orange” coming out for the Boost. Even though the name says it’s orange, it looks a bit like coral to me. We’re okay with it! This edition will be in stores and online starting August 16th and will be sold for $130 USD.

Catbird’s “Welding Annex” Gives You Permanent Jewelry

photo cred | Catbird

The word “permanent” has always been a low key fear for me. It’s one of the reasons why I could never get a tattoo. I’m a girl that likes my flexibility and maybe to an extent – my own sense of control. I’ve been a longtime fan of Catbird jewelry for some time, but my ears perked up when I heard their idea of “permanent jewelry.” It couldn’t possibly mean that jewelry was getting tattooed on, right? Of course not.

For just $94, Catbird’s “Welding Annex” will weld on a very tiny gold chain onto your arm. It’s so light and delicate that you may not even notice it there. So is it as permanent as it sounds? I suppose if you had changed your mind, there are ways of getting it off, maybe not going in at the deep end and thinking you’ll need the best plasma cutter to do so, but it’s not like your average bracelet that you can remove at the end of the night. I love the idea of a welded bracelet, but only if it’s something sentimental that I know I’ll keep on for a very long time. Readers, would you try it?

Anna Campbell’s “Wanderlust” Collection

After months of not being able to get to my favorite wedding blogs, it felt so good to catch up this week. I can’t wait to show you the wedding videos I’ve got in the queue coming up. One of the posts that I stumbled upon didn’t have a wedding video tied to it, but did it end up being Anna Campbell’s latest “Wanderlust” Collection. I found myself scrolling through the post and having so many favorites that I had to share them here with you.

Anna is known for her beautifully embellished gowns and while I have never seen myself loving a gown that resembled this style, I’m quickly discovering how much it is growing on me!

Free Beauty Snags This Weekend

There are not one, but two chances for you to snag some great products this weekend! The best part? It’s all free. It’s hard to imagine my life without some of my favorite products, but they never come cheap. In fact, it’s crazy when I calculate in a year how much I’ve spent on makeup and skincare. I don’t know how everyone does it! When I found out that there were two great chances for my readers to snag  a little something for themselves, I thought I had to share. National Self Care Day ended up being yesterday, but Sephora is celebrating it this weekend at all of their stores. If you go into any one of them this weekend (July 27th-29th) you can snag yourself a free face mask. There is absolutely no catch; you don’t have to be a member, you just have to walk in!

Head on over to any MAC store or counter this Sunday to pick yourself up a free lipstick for National Lipstick Day. I actually participated in this last year and realized my local MAC store had opened an hour earlier so by the time I got down there, all that was left were the not-so-popular colors. Don’t make the same mistake I did. Make sure to check when your MAC store is opening and get there early to get your first choice pick out of the nine different shades that they’ll be offering from their Artist Favorites collection.

We would say “happy shopping,” but you won’t even be spending a dime!

Karlie Kloss Announces Engagement Through Social Media

For someone who is pretty tight-lipped on their personal life, we’re surprised the Karlie Kloss announced her engagement over Instagram. Karlie has been dating Joshua Kushner for six years (yes, younger brother of Jared Kushner) and they have been engaged for just a couple of weeks now. It’s likely this photo was taken on their most recent vacation in Italy. We love Karlie and we’re excited about her future nuptials as well as her bachelorette party and who she’ll have by her side as bridesmaids, but we’re still a little bit iffy on the family she’s joining. The only thing that gives us peace of mind is knowing that she did vote for Hillary.

Beauty for Breakfast Pt. 36

When we were younger, there really wasn’t such a thing as an evening skincare routine. In fact, my routine consisted of taking out my contacts and brushing my teeth. It wasn’t until the end of high school that I discovered Neutrogena cleansing wipes, but even I saw that as a chore in itself. Fast forward to 2018 and taking off your makeup for the day can take anywhere from 45 minutes to an hour. Aside from just washing your face, you have to use a cleanser, a mask, and toner. Well, let me tell you, I’ve got the lazy girl’s guide to an evening routine down, but it’s not one that I would advise for everyone. When bareMinerals sent me their Skinlongevity Vital Power Infusion, I was thrilled to try it out. After making a purchase at their store a month before, I actually got to take home a sample. I had never tried anything quite like this. It was the perfect finish after cleansing and exfoliating my face in the evenings and went on so easily. All it requires are two little pumps to cover your face and you’re good to go! Don’t forget to also make sure you get your neck as that’s a part I generally end up missing. Vital Power Infusion feels like it locks in my moisturizer after a cleanse and doesn’t feel heavy at all after application. It’s exactly the kind of product you want when your skin can feel dry and tight after a wash. For your own Skinlongevity, click here.

Aritzia Pre-Fall 2018

Wilfred Free Grete Jacket – $198

My whole period off of work has been one long to do list. I’m not sure how or when I developed the habit of making lists, but there is nothing more satisfying than crossing something off. While some prefer to cross things off physically on pen and paper, I’m okay with striking a line through it on a document on the cloud. Aritzia had sent me an email the other day introducing pre-fall and normally, I might graze over it quickly, but I opened it! And naturally, we wanted everything. I’m still relishing in the summer season and holding onto for as long as I can, but here are 10 Aritzia pieces that I would purchase right now if I could. I’m loving the neutral tones as well as the 90’s throwback with the miniskirts and turtlenecks. Can this be my uniform this fall?
