Monday Morning Musings | No. 55

A Few Days In The Mountains

Ryan and I got home last night from spending 4 nights at our favorite place, Blue Ridge, Georgia. My parents have a cozy cabin tucked away in the mountains and it’s one of our very favorite getaways. The cabin is quite literally built into the mountain and is very secluded. It’s the perfect place to disconnect and rest… and, honestly, we did just that! 

We had the best time making nightly fires, roasting s’mores, reading our books on the front porch, and going on long, lazy walks. It was just what our hearts needed. Now, only if we had just a few more days…

I’ll do a little iPhone re-cap later this week, and don’t worry, we will be announcing this month’s book club selection soon as well… so stay tuned! 

5 Things I’m Loving:

Perfect Easter Dress

I’ve been getting quite a few DMs and e-mails about Easter dresses! I will definitely do a round up of a few favorites this week, but at the moment I’m totally crushing on this pretty pastel gingham one. I think it might just be the perfect Easter frock!

The Best Mascara Combo

Guys, I am OBSESSED with this lash combo. I mentioned on stories a few weeks ago how I have been trying out a new lash routine and I can not say enough good things about this combination. No lie, my eyelashes legitimately look fake they are that full and long. The key to success here is using the Roller Lash as a first coat and the Thick & Fast (I’ve used for a few years now) as a second coat. Trust me on this one, these are totally worth the purchase!!

Stubbs & Wootton

I finally got the chance to break in my new Stubbs & Wootton’s this weekend and honestly, I totally get the hype. There was legitimately ZERO break-in time required. Seriously, they were incredibly comfortable from the very moment I put them on. I cannot get get over them! I wore them around downtown Blue Ridge all weekend.

They run true to size and honestly fit like a dream! I know they are an investment, but I can’t recommend them enough. Also, I have a 20% off code if you are ready to pull the trigger on a pair of your own! 😉  —-> “AB20

Glossier

I can’t believe I’m even saying this, but I actually don’t own a single Glossier product. Honestly, I’m kind of embarrassed now that I’m telling you this… considering I’m a beauty blogger and all. But have no fear, I will be placing an order and doing a full review very soon!

Ryan and I listened to Emily Weiss’ (the founder of Glossier) interview on NPR’s How I Built This over the weekend and it made me fall in love with the brand.

Have you tried any of their products yet?! Tell me what I should order first!

Silicone Scrubber

I saw these little silicone scrubbers in a kitchen boutique over the weekend and instantly became obsessed! I don’t know if this is weird, but I’m ALWAYS concerned about our dish sponges and making sure they are extra clean… I can get kind of crazy about it. But let’s be real, I think these just solved all my life’s problems!

    Your cabin week sounds amazing! I love a good campfire so much, they are just the best!
    I love Glossier too – I recommend trying the blush out! I really love Storm, the color looks intimidating but it blends out to such a pretty color! And the lip color crush is great for summer!

    I’m obsessed with boy brow. I don’t do too much to my brows and I love that I swipe it on and I’m always happy with the result. It’s probably one of the few beauty products I buy over and over again. I also love the balm. They all smell amazing

    That Gal Meets Glam is one of my favorites from them! And now the jump over to sponges! I have to try these and get some for the rest of the family. Sounds like you had a much needed relaxing time in the mountains. You both deserve it! 🙂

    Your Monday Musings are some of my favorite posts . I just bought the Poppy Gal Meets Glam a few weeks ago, and have plans to wear it on Easter! I’m very picky about my Easter dress, and this one has Easter written all over it. Happy April!
