So the last time I traveled for a speaking engagement I realized with horror that my beloved hairspray would not be permitted to accompany me on the plane. (Yes, I have told this story once before, and yes, I’m still processing.) Being left with no other option, I stopped in at Ulta upon landing so that I could purchase new hairspray – new hairspray which ended up being used a total of two times before I had to get back on the plane to head home. But no worries – I found a good home for said sweet hairspray. I’d never thoughtlessly leave her in a hotel room trash can. That would just be cruel.
All this is to say that I clearly have a problem.
Ha. No. All this is to say that I think I’ve solved all of our problems, fellow loyal-to-your-beauty-products-until-their-dying-day gals!
All of our fave products presented in 3 oz. packaging? Brilliant. Thank you, thank you, thank you, Alexi and Kate!
Sigh. Do you know why Etsy hurts me? Because when I find something absolutely stunning (like the above chalkboard that I’m currently obsessed with), I know that I have no time to pinch my pennies and save up to buy it before someone comes along and snatches it up!
I am absolutely smitten with this particular Etsy find but since she simply can’t be mine I thought I’d share her with all of you lovely ladies in case one of you would like to give her a good home. Just promise that I can come and visit her on occasion, okay?
Humorous things that take the sting out of loving when you’re not feeling it? L. O. V. E.
Word on the street is that it’s in bad taste to admit that you like receiving presents. Really? Whatever. I love presents. Presents are definitely one of my favorite things. If you give me a present you, too, will be one of my favorite things. ;)
(The beautiful box of Sephora goodies above arrived on my doorstep earlier this week thanks to a gift card given to me by Dan for my birthday. He’s the sweetest. All of his sandwiches are definitely made with love.)
I’ve been making an effort to take more photographs with my Canon for posterity’s sake but I can’t lie – my heart still lies with Instagram. Why? Well…
- I find it easier to capture fleeting moments like the one above with my iPhone. (You are right to be afraid, Charlie. Very afraid.)
- I appreciate not having to upload photos in order to share them with friends and family.
- It has those filters that make this sleep-deprived mama look not quite so scary.
- Captions are fun.
Instagram blessings abound.
