Fresh Week

We had such a fun weekend! On Friday night we got the opportunity to see Hamilton, and it was such a treat! Friends of ours gifted us the tickets knowing that Ryan has been a LONG time fan of Alexander Hamilton (waaaay before it was cool, ha!) and because it would cap off the week Ryan finished his radiation treatments. It was such a sweet surprise and the perfect way to celebrate. Neither of us had listened to the sound track or seen clips of the show because we knew we wanted to experience it in person first, and it was SPECTACULAR. If you haven’t seen it, I’d put it on your bucket list immediately.

Today feels like a fresh start and I’m so excited to kick off this week. We have tons to do, including prepping for New York for Fashion Week next week. It will be mine and Ryan’s first trip together since May! And honestly, we’re so giddy about it.

5 Things I’m Loving

Chunky Gold Earrings

I bought these earrings last September and I’ve been wearing them on major repeat lately! They are such a fun statement and go with everything. Plus, they’re on sale this week!!

This Gorgeous Lip Combo

I have been wearing NYX Tea & Cookies” lip liner every day for the past two years. It’s my base liner, what I put on before I put on any of my lipstick. Recently I have found a great new compliment to the lip liner. After hearing rave reviews of NYX’s Butter Gloss I thought I’d give it a whirl, and guys it’s awesome! Not too thick, not too sticky, and very moisturizing. Use them together. “Tea & Cookies” Lip Liner plus Butter Gloss in “Crème Brulee” has been my go-to lately!

Festive Heart Earrings

Okay, HOW cute are these earrings?! I’m clearly into earrings lately and these from St. Armands Designs are just so fun. Plus at $35 they are an absolute STEAL. You’ve gotta get yourself a pair!

My Dream Shep Shirt

I just got this Shep Shirt and I am, well, obsessed with it. If you haven’t ever tried a Shep Shirt from Vineyard Vines, you HAVE to. It’s like the softest coziest thing on the planet and so worth every single penny. Seriously, cannot say enough good things about them, and this pale blue and white stripe one had me at hello.

Glass Smoothie Straws

I hate reusable straws. There, I said it. But I love the environment and turtles, so y’all I’m trying. I have tried every single kind of reusable straw and they all give me the heebie jeebies. I think it’s the fact that you can clean them but you can’t see if they are actually 1000% clean?! I don’t know! But I just ordered these glass smoothie straws and so far I feel way less freaked out about them.

    You can put some water and soap in a sink or container with your reusable straws and throw in a denture cleaning tab or two to get the straws clean. The denture cleaning tabs are super cheap so I use them on my reusable cups and travel coffee cups to get them extra clean.

    We saw Hamilton in the fall and I’m still singing all the songs in my head! It’s just genius! I got the biography for Christmas and I can’t start to learn more about him too.
    Love the earrings!

    I’m such a fan of NYX lip products – their liners and butter glosses cannot be beat! The lip liner shade Natural is my everyday go-to. Definitely going to pick up your color combination the next time I’m at the store.
