Recent Purchases

Hello and welcome to a new week! Hope you enjoyed the weekend. Today I’m reviewing a couple of my recent purchases.

Loft

I bought this shirt on sale at Loft a few weeks ago and can’t stop wearing it! It’s nice as a tank for these hot summer days or wearing to work under a cardigan or jacket. Only a few sizes left, snag one while you can.

Loft

Also bought this at Loft. Haven’t had a chance to wear it yet, but the structure is nice if you’re a pencil skirt lover like I am. I picked this skirt because I had seen it featured on Extra Petite last year in gray. The fabric is thick, but light enough for summer and I love the fact that it has pockets. The waist is a little large on me, but I also have a tiny waist compared to my hips. A little alteration and it will fit perfect! Can’t wait to style it and feature it soon.

Lush

I picked up this product two weeks ago (mentioned here) and have been using it twice a day. I wanted to give you a review in case you were hoping I’d write one.

The idea behind Lush Cosmetics is making good products using fresh and organic ingredients, use little or no preservatives, and they list all the ingredients used on their packaging. There is a lot more about their beliefs on the website. All in all I think this is a great idea. With some products you have no clue what you’re putting on your body.

I picked Skin Drink because I wanted to try a new moisturizer. I had been using Origins GinZing and like it, but thought trying something else may be even more effective with my dry skin. See my skincare routine here. This product definitely makes my skin feel soft and smooth. If you have a sensitive nose this isn’t the product for you. It’s very “earthy” and something makes me wonder why am I slathering this on my face if it doesn’t smell good, but it works well! I use it at night and put it on under my foundation in the morning. All day my skin feels hydrated, but not greasy. I look forward to giving my skin a nice “drink” at the end of the day. Heck, I like a drink at the end of the day, but that’s beside the point. I would recommend this product! 

What products or clothes have you bought recently you’d recommend?

Until next post…xoxo Becca

A Typical Weekend Recap

Usually when I share my weekends they include a special event, but my typcial weekend consists of errands. Who else has a million errands to run on the weekend? Is this what adult life is all about? Dang, why didn’t someone tell me this before? I wouldn’t have rushed to be an adult haha Actually, that’s a lie. I’ve been pretty independent since going off to college. So what does a typical weekend look like for me? Here’s a quick recap.

Saturday I had a long overdue hair cut. My hair lady, Kelly, had a freak accident which caused her to break her elbow. She’d been out for 7 weeks…which means I was desperate to get my hair cut.

Lunch date with the hubs at the ever romantic police department. We had JAX Burgers, one of my favorite places to grab a burger.

Like a crazy person I had several shopping stops to make, Hobby Lobby for more items for the baby sprinkle I’m hosting next Saturday, the mall, and Market Street to get Lush Cosmetic’s Skin Drink. Can’t wait to try it out!

A hot day has to include Passion Tea Lemonade with Raspberry from Starbucks 🙂 My favorite for a summer day!

Then I started binge watched Season 5 of Downton Abbey. In the middle of Downton Abbey I decided I should go grocery shopping so I could sleep in on Sunday. By “sleep in” I mean until at least 8:30 lol Remember the days when you could sleep until after 12? Where did those days go?

Sunday started off with the usual puppy snuggles and Food Network. Read about that here. I really like Giada’s new show, Giada in Italy. Then it was off to get my nails done.

We met up with family at Gringo’s for dinner. So yummy and good to see everyone.

I hope everyone had a good weekend! Enjoy your week and I’ll “see” you on Friday! Until next post…xoxo Becca
