Weekend at Home

We had one of those much-needed and very welcomed at-home weekends! On Friday we did date night, Saturday we spent running errands and I finally cleaned out my makeup drawer (hallelujah!), and on Sunday after church we spent the afternoon with family. It was such a wonderful few days and I never wanted it to end. As much as I LOVE traveling, I’m a homebody at heart.

One of the things I do after a season of heavy travel is hop on an accelerated skincare routine to get my “glow” back. The late nights and early flights really take it out of my skin, so I typically double down when I’m back home. And thankfully Kiehl’s just launched a few new products that I cannot get enough of that really help add some much needed moisture back into my skin. 

Watch my full review on my favorites from the  Kiehl’s Avocado line over on IGTV!


5 Things I’m Loving:

Avocado Mask 

Okay I love a good face mask, but this brand new Avocado Mask from Kiehl’s is a game changer. It softens and smoothes out your skin in 15 minutes and perfect for an after-travel treatment. I love that Kiehl’s is using the power of Avocado in their skincare now and I can’t say enough wonderful things about this product.

Also, if you like this, you must try the eye treatment as well!

Air Pod Covers

I posted a photo of my desk last week over on Instagram stories and my inbox flooded with questions about my pink Air Pod case cover! This little under $7 find has become my new best friend. Ryan and I no longer accidentally swap Air Pods!

Under $10 Lipstick Find

Maybelline sent me a box of their latest launch Super Stay Ink Crayon lipstick and I fell in love ar first swipe! These are so similar to the Bite beauty lipsticks that I also love, but half the price! Also, they claim to stay on for 8 hours, and so far… the claim is true. I am obsessed with this new line! Definitely worth a try.

New Netflix Binge

I was working late last week and needed to get out of the office and have a change of scenery, so I went to the couch, opened my laptop, and turned on the first show that came up on the queue as “white noise”. Well, now I can say that I’m officially addicted to Madame Secretary. But the real questions is, where have I been??  Apparently this show has been on since 2014! I’m a sucker for a political drama.

The Best Bra

Have y’all ordered your bras yet from the Nordstrom Anniversary sale? It’s currently more than $20 off! I restocked and ordered two! Ha! If you haven’t tried the Natori Feather Bra you’ve got to give it a whirl. I’m telling you it’s amazing!!

    Madam Secretary is one of my favorites. It’s the first political show I’ve seen that I can compare to my all-time favorite, The West Wing. So good!

    Madame Secretary is SO GOOD! We love it. And since we don’t have cable, we rely on Netflix to keep adding new seasons–haha!

    Hey Ashley…does the Maybelline lipstick have a smell??? Can’t have a smell.

      Honestly, a bit… but not too bad! I am very sensitive to scent and I feel like it’s barely noticeable! xx
