Woah - it's been a minute, huh? More like three years of a minute... (Feels slightly ashamed...)

I can't promise I'll be more consistent at this whole blogging thing, but I can say I have the itch to write again. I've been spending more of my free time wondering if this is a hobby I'd like to pick back up. So here we are, taking some time to figure out if blogging works for me.  

And if it does? To figure out how it works for me!

That might mean weekly posts like this. It could mean monthly posts. It could mean a few in-depth posts sprinkled in here and there. I hope you'll enjoy the journey as we figure this out together 😀

So let’s jump in and talk about this week.

What I’m Buying

I'm considering this white blazer. First, I love listening to The Lady Gang and so if they're selling -I'm buying! I've never considered myself a casual blazer gal but my style is evolving and I think it's chic af.

I'm so, so pumped for the N Sale! I know not everyone may be shopping, but it's my first time going into the sale with a Nordstrom credit card AND being back stateside.
(The sale is quite different and less available in Canada - although, I am thankful it was one of the few brands available in both countries.)
I've been saving up and I am HERE for it! I'm most excited for this, this, this, this, and this

It's time for a replacement on this concealer which has become a holy-grail beauty product for me over the last 18 months. It covers my dark circles and my acne/acne scars. Win, win!

Very un-fun but essential buy this week is this. Let's talk about how this is my 4th time buying this because the first 3 times I picked the wrong size. Ugh lol. I've sat with the 3rd one for 7 months now so I feel like I've gotten my money's worth. I actually measured this time so maybe 4th times a charm? lol

What I recently bought

This and this printable wall art to enjoy a change of scenery above my desk for August!

I'm giving these a shot. I bought one size too big so I'm waiting for the right size to come in the mail. #PandemicSafeShopping. These jeans are so challenging with my pear shape but I have so many cute outfits pinned to try that I can incorporate these into. I really love a 70's vibe during the summer so I'm optimistic. A peasant top? These jeans? Rainbow on my Spotify? Yes, Yes, and Yes!

On National Lipstick Day I finally scooped up this, this, this, and this shade from The Lip Bar! I'm really excited give their products a try! 

This Week's Seasonal Celebrations

For the past 14 years, I've made little seasonal lists for myself. I always thought I was a bit of a weirdo for making these seasonal lists to create little celebrations and traditions for myself lol. Then I found this community and learned lots of people love celebrating the seasons like I do! So here's how I celebrated this week. 

* Weekly wear this month's seasonal lip shade (Hot Pink) ✔️
* Listen to my Summer playlist ✔️
* 7/24 - Celebrate National Tequila Day with a homemade Watermelon Marg ✔️
* 7/25 - Celebrate Christmas in July ✔️
(I love spending a hour each July listening to this and watching this.)
*Burn a Summer-scented Candle ✔️
(I'm currently burning a B&B Works candle that I never finished last summer called Fiji White Sands.)

Reading Right Now

I'm just more than 1/2 way through The Happiness Project

I'm really enjoying it so far but taking it slower than usual because I'm finding myself really inspired and distracted by the inspiration lol. In fact, I'm pretty sure all of her talk about her blog inspired me to want mine to be a thing again! haha 

Watching Right Now

I blame one of my best friends for hooking me into the Real Housewives lol! I'm so into RHOBH and RHONY right now. Who do you think is telling the truth - Brandi or Denise???

B and I also hopped on the HBO Max train so we're watching the Sopranos (my first go, his second) and Friends (my third go, his first). 

Loving Right Now

Taylor Swift's new album! It is SO good. So, so, so, so, so good! 

My theory is that the entire album is a concept album and each song that isn't it's own individual story (like the last great american dynasty, seven, and epiphany) is from the perspective of either James, Inez, or Betty. What do you think of the album?

Thanks for stopping by today 😀
