All week long I was overtaken with Royal Wedding fever. I couldn’t get enough television specials, interviews, and pictures of Prince William and Princess Catherine. Besides capping off a great week with waking up at 5 am to watch a fairytale come true, I enjoyed a sushi date night out and the blossoming flowers that are a sure sign spring is on it’s way (despite the weather telling us otherwise), treating myself to a new pair of sunglasses, cupcake frozen yogurt where I loaded on far too many sprinkles and marshmallows, the last of the jellybeans leftover from Easter (notice a lack of red ones-guilty!) and thanks to some inspiration from Alicia at Cheetah is the New Black, a little leopard on leopard pairing.
The weather here is still gray and drizzly, and it’s making me even more anxious for sunny spring days to arrive. In the meantime, I’m already planning my spring wardrobe, and lately I’ve been drawn to easy-to-wear, breezy, lightweight dresses, that can be worn during the day to work and dressed up at night for almost any occasion. I’m ready to officially put the sweaters and tights away until the cold comes again next winter. It’s been so cold here, I’ve even been able to stretch out the wearing of my fur vests, which normally would be long packed away for the season. Do you typically dress for the season or go by the weather?
Just like I love getting to peek inside other people’s closets, I also love getting a glimpse inside people’s bathrooms. (Admit it-you know you do too). More specifically, I like seeing the products they have and love inside their bathroom. You know everyone has their favorite few products and items, but really, do you even know what your best friend uses in the morning while getting ready? Since I shared a peek in my closet, here now are a few of my favorite and most-loved things, bathroom edition.
1) I was given a can of Elnett hairspray during a trip to NYC and have been set on it since. I’ve tried many others, and admittedly, I don’t love the scent, but it works just how I want a hairspray to work (it holds without being sticky or crunchy) and I kind of love the gold can.
2) While I’m anxious to try out the entire Living Proof Full line, this thickening cream does wonders…and as a lifelong fine haired girl, I literally think I have tried them all. This noticeably works, and smells incredible.
3) My friend Dani is a sort of nail polish expert, and when I asked her once if she had a suggestion for a great top coat, she immediately told me about ‘Out The Door.’ While the bottle isn’t cute, pretty, or fancy, this top coat makes a serious difference-and it’s only about $5.
The Shu Uemura eyelash curler has been my #1 constant every day longer than anything else I’ve ever used. Anyone that knows me well knows that at all times I have one in both my purse and makeup bag, and have been known to whip it out to curl my lashes at the most random times. They just stopped selling it at Sephora but I just found out you can still buy them on Amazon. Phew!
While I love to wear bright pink polish, these are my 2 current faves. I like a darker one on my toes, and lighter one on my fingers for summer.
The first time I smelled Kai I was in a little shop in Huntington Beach and I’ve never forgotten it. It’s got this geranium sort of scent, and it will always make me think of California. Recently Gilt Groupe featured Kai on their site and I was so excited to scoop up their body butter. I’m trying to make it last but already worried I should have bought in bulk.
