style spotter // summer beauty must-haves

When it comes to summer beauty, we agree on one key factor: less is more. Who wants to feel like their make-up is caked on when you also have to throw sunscreen and sweat into the mix? Pas nous. Even so… we’re not insane — erm, brave enough to go totally bare. With this in mind, here’s what we’re loving right now. purpletale’s 5 Steps to Lovely Skin Complete Facial Solution // Apparently, a suuuuper fun side effect of aging is that your skin wakes up one day and is all, “You think imma elasticize myself, bitch?” and you’re all, “well… you always did before?” Nay, no more. Now, we spend our lives trying to…

style spotter: a travel-themed nursery with @PotteryBarnKids

Mini life update! About a month ago, almost to the day, the hubs and I found ourselves in a situation that I officially wish on no other pregnant woman. We realized, with about 10 weeks to go before my expected due date, that we had to move. I won’t bore you with the details, but things moved fast, and we were fortunate to find an amazing new apartment absurdly quickly… like, it was the vert first one we saw, on our very first day of looking.
