Imagine if you were tasked to pick three items from your beauty routine to use while getting ready that day. If I’m being honest, I haven’t even done that, but it’s something that I’ve thought about it. Picking three items would mean that I could prioritize the things I wanted to highlight on my face. Picking three things would significantly cut down on my “getting ready” time in the morning and lastly, it just allows me to not spend so much time thinking about the way I look. Cause it doesn’t really matter that much right? If you had to choose, what would you pick! So I didn’t challenge myself with this, but I was able to get halfway there and pick three items!
I didn’t want to focus only on the face or the eyes so instead, I chose three different areas:
- Shu Uemura eyelash curler – hold the eyeliner and mascara
- Chloé “Love Story” rollerball perfume
- Benefit hydra-smooth lip color in “Air Kiss”
Now, I’m not sure when an opportunity or an event would arise where it would make sense to only wear these three things because I realize it’s an odd three to select, but who knows – maybe we’ll just give it a shot someday.
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.
This is just the best.
Every year when I missed Coachella, I would look forward to streaming the sets and catching up on all of the photos via my favorite blogs. Music festival fashion isn’t new, but it hasn’t always existed either. It was probably made more widely known a few years ago and after that fast fashion brands began to design collections so that people could specifically dress for these music festivals. It’s fascinating to me, really. Anyways, like every year, I continue to really enjoy seeing the looks that celebrities and bloggers bring with them to the festival so here are just a few of my favorites!
I realize that this is only for Weekend One, but I don’t know if I’ll have it in me to do a second weekend roundup! Plus – we gotta make room for other content.
Damn. Rihanna came to party with this Giambattista Valli Haute Couture Gown.
