Happy Friday friends! YEA! Weekend is here. Although in the summer time it sort of feels like all week is one looong drawn out weekend. But at least on Saturday and Sunday my husband is home and I have back up support around here. :) Sharing a few of my latest favorite things! Like this Bobbi Brown Tinted Eye Brightener. Love this stuff. You put it under your eyes before concealer and it takes away those dark circles/bags. (I have awful circles under my eyes because I stay up way too late blogging.) :) You can get it on-line but might want to go to a department store to try the different shades. I wear the Light Bisque 2 so if you have fair skin that’s a good shade to try. (You can see all of my favorite make-up here.)
Also love Nate Berkus. He can be a favorite thing too, right? :)
Have you all read this book? It is DARLING! Oh my word. So funny. The Day the Crayons Quit
has got to be one of my favorite children’s books I’ve read this year. It’s hilarious and fun for all ages. I laughed out loud through the whole thing. The crayons have all had enough. Blue is tired of only coloring in large bodies of water, orange and yellow are in a fight because they each believe they are the true color of the sun. It goes on and on. All of my kids loved it and Kole kept saying “read it again!” So so good.
And speaking of books – this is another book I can’t put down. Bright Bazaar by Will Taylor
. I bought it at West Elm and then realized I could have saved some money by getting it through Amazon so don’t make my same mistake! But such a fun book! All about embracing color in your home. It immediately spoke to me because after finally getting some of our more neutral big pieces of furniture I’m ready to play with color in my house! Here is a peek at a few of the pages…
This is Will’s house. Isn’t it happy!?
So much fun right!? Will has a blog all about COLOR and wrote this book with some of his best tips. I have loved flipping through it and feeling inspired to bring more color into my home.
A favorite staple for my wardrobe this summer has been these beautiful coral earrings from Banana Republic.
They are a bit heavy so I usually only wear them when I’m going somewhere for a few hours, but they are so pretty and work with a lot of my outfits. I usually don’t spend much on jewelry and these were a little pricey, but they ended up being worth it because I wear them so much. I couldn’t find the coral pair on-line but they have them on sale in mint and I love that color too! May have to snag a second pair.
Since we’re talking Fashion I’ll also share my favorite summer dress. I found this on sale at the Tommy Hilfiger outlet store and I’ve loved it! It’s a simple t-shirt button down dress and I like that I can dress it up with heels and jewelry or wear it with flip flops for a casual every day look. It’s lightweight so it has been nice and cool for summer. Shoes are the Michael Kors Giovanna wedge
. They are also favorites. This is my third summer with them and they are still in great shape.
Works for hanging out with these three monkeys.
They are favorites too.
Right up there with Nate Berkus.
Happy weekend everyone!
