I hope you had a great weekend! Mine was pretty relaxing. I spent it reading, having a coffee date with a friend and going on a couple of hikes. I’m really excited for this week, though, because I’m going on a little trip to the desert for my birthday! I leave Thursday so I’ll be trying to knock out as much work as possible until then. In the meantime, here are some recent faves…
5 THINGS I’M LOVING RIGHT NOW
#1 easy volume
After getting my modern Rachel haircut, I looked for a volumizing tool. I figured it would make it easier to blow out my quasi curtain bangs in a C-shape as recommended by my hairdresser. This Revlon one got amazing reviews and after using it for a few weeks I understood why. It’s so easy to use and delivers major volume! I let my hair air dry till it’s about 75% dry then use the tool to finish drying. It’s like having a round brush and a hairdryer in one hand. Easy peasy!
There’s something about a lace robe that instantly makes me feel fancy. On days I need a little boost in my mood but don’t feel like getting dressed, I reach form my white robe with lace accents. My exact one is sold out but this is nearly identical.
It’s on the pricier side, but the splurge has been worth it to me. I’ve been using it feel fancy for years now. If you want to feel fancy at a price that’s easier on the wallet, this white robe has similar lace details at a fraction of the price.
I’ve worn this bucket bag almost every day since I got it. I haven’t worn a large roomy bag in a while and I forgot how practical they are! I can literally fit everything, plus throw in a sparkling water when I leave the house. I love the ombré colors on the bag because it goes with black, brown and everything in between. Plus, thanks to the removable long strap, you can wear the bag multiple ways.
I’m always looking for a new binge-worthy show. A friend recommended Ginny & Georgia and I watched the whole season in a week. It feels like a mix of a bunch of different shows I’ve seen before, in a good way. I love the main character Georgia’s sass. She’s a Southern young, single mom raising two kids from two different dads, in a preppy East Coast town. It’s the perfect show to watch if you’re looking for something light and entertaining to unwind after a long day.
I honestly had no clue what this book was about until I was about a quarter way through, but not in a bad way. It was entertaining. I just couldn’t understand the plot. That’s because not much action takes place in this book. It’s the nicest failed bank robbery, hostage situation you’ll ever read. Instead of twists and turns (although there is a major one at the end!), it’s a book about human kindness and how strangers can be such pivotal parts of your life, if you’re willing to give them a chance. The author has a knack for character depth and I found the ending to extremely uplifting.
