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
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!
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.
