Easy Living

It feels like I can’t stop talking about the weather, but I want to enjoy it while it’s still nice! The past couple of weekends it’s been warm enough for me to pull out the denim cutoff shorts that I lived in last summer. You know that comfort is key for me and I wanted to create an outfit that would be easy to wear in these warm spring days. I’m really into this pale, soft blue right now, so I love the color of this nail polish, along with the sleeveless button-down. Until I bring my toes out of hibernation and give myself a fresh pedicure, I’ll keep wearing cute and comfy sneakers like the ones above. I don’t know that I’m cool enough to pull off the backpack trend, but I really like the way this sleek white version looks this causal outfit.

I bet you guys have heard by now that Piperlime is closing down on April 30th. I think it’s too bad because they carried a nice variety of clothes and the few things I have from the site, I really like. Since everything is on mega sale right now, I thought I’d round up a few of my favorite picks. Don’t forget to take an extra 50% off with the code GOODBYE. As you can imagine, sizes are limited and if you see something you like, act fast since things are selling out quickly!


Colorful Spring Finds Under $100

I have a real neutrals problem in my closet right now. I’m still mainly wearing clothes from my fall capsule wardrobe. When I was putting that list together, I wanted everything to mix and match well and it was easier to achieve that with neutral colors. I have a solid foundation of basics, so I am glad for that. Now that the sun has come out and temperatures are rising, I really want to inject some color back into my wardrobe. I picked up a few new things last month, but then I realized that they were all neutrals too. These are a few items that caught my eye while I was browsing online. They’re all under $100 (and many of them are under $50)!

New From the Drugstore

Last week I went to CVS to pick up a few bits. You know how it is- you go in to get contact solution and you walk out with four beauty products that were certainly weren’t on the list. Today I thought I’d share what I bought (think of this as a mini haul, if you’d like).

– Maybelline Color Molten Eyeshadow in Rose Haze: In last week’s makeup routine, I mentioned that I only wear eyeshadow from time to time. I’m not quite sure what compelled me to pop this duo into my basket, other than the fact that the colors are so pretty. I haven’t even read or watched any reviews on this product (normally I do all of my research before I buy). I am curious though to crack this open and give it a try.

– Burt’s Bees Lip Balm: Normally I go with Chapstick when I’ve run out of lip balm, but this time I decided to try Burt’s Bees. Plus, this one is mango scented. Doesn’t that sound delicious? (Promise that I’m not going to eat my lip balm.)

Rimmel Salon Pro Nail Polish in Mars: The unofficial plan is to own all of the colors from this line because the formula is just great. I always check the display in my local CVS and I was pretty excited when I saw a few new shades (although I think they might have been released a while ago in the UK). I was good and only bought one color this time. I used to own a bright cherry red like this but it became old and clumpy, so I thought I’d replace it with this Rimmel polish.

Maybelline Sensational Creamy Matte Lip Color in Divine Wine: Ahhh, this lipstick. I was searching for this for a while. It seemed like every time I tried to buy it, they didn’t have this color in stock (and I tried a few different stores). I’d heard good things about the Maybelline matte collection, which is why it’s been on my list for the past few months. I’ve only used this color once so far, but it does feel creamy and pleasant on the lips. After hunting it down, I only feel about 80% about the way it looks on me. It has a little more brown in it than I’d like. I’m going to keep it because I do like it, but it won’t get a lot of wear right now because I’m transitioning into spring makeup.
