I caved and finally started this wildly popular series, demystifying my eyebrows & contour, and the treehouse tour you must see
The Rundown & Best Links of the Week
Reading this: I finally caved. It was the last book left on my kindle and it’s a week before my next holds arrive, so I gave one of the most popular fantasy series a try. And I understand the hype. Fantasy isn’t usually my thing, and this may read a little like light fairy porn at times (you’ve been warned), but I understand the hype and I’ve been converted to the dark side of the wall (IYKYK).
Watching this: I’m in a bit of a watching funk. We finished Welcome to Wrexham (which I loved) and I’m missing Wednesday and a little unsure of what to watch next. Any suggestions are welcome!
Listening to this: a friend of mine made the perfect spring cleaning playlist. It has been on repeat with the hope that the desire to deep clean will follow.
Cooking this: Peach Raspberry Crumble Bars (these were absolutely not cool before I handed these out to dinner guests, but no one seemed to mind! They’d be divine warm with a scoop of vanilla ice cream).
Wearing this: I tried this on a whim last weekend and it was instant love. It’s somewhat unassuming on the hanger, but magic when worn. (a small fit me perfectly. And it’s an extra 20% with the code ‘yesplease’!)
This week’s high: The weather. I love living in a place with an occasional 75-degree day in the middle of February, especially when it’s accompanied by plummeting temperatures this weekend. North Carolina, you are a strange one, my dear.
This week’s low: Every time I think I’ve figured out how to sleep through the night, I’m humbled and reminded that I’m still an awful sleeper. This week’s culprit: a caffeinated tea at bedtime that I did not realize was caffeinated. It has since been regulated to mornings and early afternoons.
This week according to my camera roll:
The Best Links of the Week:
Have more fun! It could be great for your health.
Stop everything and look at this house tour. It’s everything that’s been inspiring me with our new house - joyful, color, informal, inviting.
I’ve been on the hunt for an easy-to-use brow product that keeps them lifted and in place without looking aggressively laminated. After trying (and not loving) a few more expensive products, I gave this $8 brow gel a try and it’s wonderful. I prefer it in clear and then go in with this brow pen to fill in any gaps. The brush isn’t the easiest to use in my opinion, but this $2 spoolie makes it a breeze.
The Super Bowl needed Rihanna more than Rihanna needed the Super Bowl.
We finally have a release date for one of my favorite shows of all time!
Adjusting how I do my contour after watching this video. (this is my favorite natural, impossible-to-mess-up contour stick. I use the shade ‘biscuit.’)
The interview behind *that* iconic Rihanna family photo.
It’s been a month of using this non-aerosol dry shampoo, and I really love it. Pro tip: apply you dry shampoo, let it sit for 30 seconds (or more is just fine), give it a quick, rough blow dry on medium heat. Voila. Hello fresh hair with enviable volume.
This treehouse tour is amazing (and will probably change how you think about treehouses).
