Beauty for Breakfast Pt. 27

Screen Shot 2016-06-12 at 11.51.04 AM

When it comes to scents, I can never really make up my mind. The last time I did have a signature scent, it was Coach! But then it got discontinued, which is why we found ourselves back at Sephora again trying a dozen samples and trying to put our finger on the next purchase. I was between Chloe’s Love Story and one other one that I can’t seem to remember right now, but what I love about “Love Story” (besides the fact that it reminds me of that Taylor Swift song) is that it’s very light, romantic, and has just a hint of fruitiness/floral. Fun fact about myself: Unless I absolutely can’t live without the scent, I always buy it in rollerball form. Why?

  • They actually last a very long time!
  • If you get tired of it eventually, you know that you can always buy another one after
  • They’re more inexpensive, but more bang for your buck (at least in my opinion!) They are usually between $18-$22.
  • Super easy to put on. Pretty straightforward. I don’t even have to explain this to y’all.

So this is what we’ve been wearing since January and we’re pretty much in <3 with it.

A Collection Part 45

Interestingly enough, we don’t have a lot of thoughts to share about this A Collection Part post. The last 3 months have been a blur, but a good one. I think we’ll have some thoughts that we can share tomorrow that we’re building up, but for now let’s just enjoy these.

Kevin earned HUGE points at Christmas this year when he gifted me these Nike Flyknit Racers! They are some of my favorite pair of shoes that I currently own and I wear them all the time. I remember thinking that Kevin was cray when he urged me with these very specific instructions:

  • When taking off your shoes, you need to untie the laces
  • When putting on the shoes, you need to lace them up yourself every. time.
  • ie) there’s no slipping in of the foot or slipping it out because the threading is so delicate that you don’t want to run the risk of ripping them

I love the shoes so much that I was so scared of anything ever happening to them so ofc I listened to what my older brother had to say. They are the most lightweight pair of shoes I own and funny enough, after I wore them to work a few times, two of my coworkers went out and purchased their own flyknits as well.

You’re welcome.

Beauty for Breakfast Pt. 26

Screen Shot 2016-06-04 at 10.39.03 AM

Going home for the holidays means a lot of things, but one of the best parts is acquiring all of the beauty products that Mom could do without. What would she do without me? Everything would just go to waste! To be honest, in our mid-20’s I still don’t know what I’m doing with most of my products, but I think it’s all pretty good for experimentation and I’m sure someday I’ll find a use for it. The good thing about my mini haul from this past December is that I use all THREE of these products all of the time.

I know that tube of Lancome mascara is small and very clearly a sample, but it’s gotten me through some tough times and is still functional 6 months later… though I think that means we’re close to the end with this one.

I purchased my Bare Minerals lipstick on the right solely for our holiday party last December, but still am very much in love with it. The color is perfect for a night out and glides on so smoothly. I’ve previously found that I get pretty bored with most of my lipsticks, but not this one.

The palette in the middle is also a sample from Lancome. It features powder for contouring, blush, and a highlighter and since this was my first time using it, I definitely had to look up a tutorial online for how to incorporate the three when using it. I still don’t even know if I’m doing it quite right, but A+ for effort…? I usually save this for an evening look, but there are times when I find it to be daytime appropriate. This shade of blush is a very pretty coral pink and ideal for any sun-kissed glow. The highlighter…well, we’re still trying to figure that one out!

Lancome Definicils Mascara in Black – $27.50

Lancome Blush Subtil Palette in 126 Nectar Lace – $43

Bare Minerals Marvelous Moxie Lipstick in Live Large – $18

An Ugly Christmas Sweater, What’s That?

Ugly Christmas Sweater – Amazon / Skirt – Aritzia

Every year, the last day of work before our holiday vacation, everyone is invited to wear their own ugly Christmas sweater. It’s not that we’re NOT a team player or anything, but… we don’t buy things that are ugly. ;)

Actually though, I love my favorite Christmas sweater vest a very long time ago from college and when I saw this sweater on Amazon under the “Ugly Christmas Sweater” category, it was practically calling my name. It’s so “me!” We love this little hideous thing.

Wedding Mondays

It takes a special wedding video to make you start to tear up 7 seconds in and honestly, I didn’t think it was possible until now. Happy Wedding Mondays, everyone! What are all of you doing on your 3 day weekend? We feel pretty blessed today that we get an extra day to rest and relax before heading into what we hope will be a fantastic 4-day work week. Doesn’t that have a nice ring to it? So today, we’re dividing our time between work and Yow Yow!

I go back and forth a lot of the times between my ideal wedding video. Some videos are ALL fun – pure joy, completely upbeat and positive in every way. And then there are those that tug at the heart strings a little more. I think for the most part, this video balances a little bit of both. How gorgeous is Jean, the bride though? This reminds me a lot of Gelesia’s wedding dress and it just so happens that it was made by the same designer – Watters! We’re a fan, already!
