5 Things I’ve Been Loving Lately

Purple power!

1. The purples in the new Urban Decay Ultraviolet Palette!

I shall embark upon wearing each and every one of the purples in this $49 palette, which is out now with 12 powder eyeshadows, as smoky liners along my upper lash line, coupled with one of the matte neutrals on my lids. 😁

2. Maxi dresses

Stay cool and fashionable! Plus, there’s something freeing about your legs and booty enjoying the occasional light breeze. *shrugs* 🤷‍♀️

I have become so committed to maxi dresses lately that I got two of these Loveappella V-Neck maxis (the coral and navy) with the Nordstrom gift card I had squirreled away forever. Added bonuses: they’re currently on sale and available in petite sizes.

3. Hall and Oates

I have a (conspiracy) theory that Hall and Oates were secretly dating… Anywho! I’ve been listening to their older stuff a lot lately while I cook dinner.

Here are some classic jams to get you started, in case you haven’t heard of them before, and if that’s the case…BLASPHEMY!

You Make My Dreams

Out of Touch

She’s Gone

Rich Girl

4. Honest Beauty Liquid Lipstick in BFF

What can I say? Old habits die hard, so while I wear a mask, I still 1) smile 😊 at strangers, and 2) wear 💄 lipstick. One I love is BFF by Honest Beauty. It’s a nude matte that doesn’t move, so when I have my mask on, it doesn’t transfer. Plus, the nude color is super pretty.

5. The Titan Games

This show pits fitness enthusiasts/everyday people against professional athletes in a crazy hard obstacle course race, and it’s hosted by Maui from Moana, a.k.a. the Rock, a.k.a. Dwayne Johnson.

It may sound cheesy, but it’s shockingly engrossing! Highly recommended! Every time our family watches it, we cheer (scream, really!) for the regular guys and gals.

***Warning: don’t be surprised if you formulate a plan to improve your wimpy grip strength after the first episode.***

Your friendly neighborhood beauty addict,
