Hey, hey, and happy almost weekend! This week, I:
Went to a fun cocktail party celebrating the opening of the Upper East Side Sugarfina boutique.
Shipped the first order out from my Etsy shop – so exciting- and thank you SO MUCH to everyone who left a kind comment and message. You guys are amazing!
Weekend links, right this way:
1 // An interesting budgeting strategy that I’ve sort of considered before but never actually did.
3 // Have you ever heard of Microblading, for your eyebrows? Olivia mentioned it on her Snapchat and I was intrigued…I’ve never considered permanent makeup, but this fades after two years and my eyebrows could really use some (a lot of, actually) oomph! I’m not seriously considering it at the moment but definitely something to keep in the back of mind.
4 // Speaking of brows, I made my way over to Sephora last weekend and got one of the girls to help me (they’re great over there), and she filled in my brows with an Anastasia brow pencil. The difference was amazing – turns out I needed a way darker color than I’ve been using for the past few years.
5 // Really like this striped tee from Old Navy – the black detailing gives it a little edge. I think it would be perfect for the plane to London but my friend found it first and she refuses to let me copy her. Womp, womp.
6 // Came across this article on Camille Styles about career boosts you can undertake for little money, and it got me onto Skillshare. I’d definitely heard of it before but never taken a class – have you guys? It’s amazing! I bookmarked a bunch of classes about improving photography and after watching two, I feel like I’ve already been opened up to worlds I barely knew existed in terms of editing and other things. If you use this link you can get three months for only 99 cents! Pretty awesome.
7 // Excited that Erin Gates has created a home line! Can’t wait to see the whole thing when it officially launches in October.
8 // Ya know that giant Mark Bittman book How to Cook Everything that everyone has (well, my Dad has, anyway)? Well, in October How to Bake Everything is coming out…that will need to be joining my personal cookbook collection (which I sadly rarely use because hashtag lazy and and hashtag Seamless).
