Now that our house is empty, we’ve had a lot of time to explore and part of that includes shopping. I’ve rounded up a few favorite finds from the last few weeks. There is a little bit of everything.
I recently got two of her smaller prints custom framed last week and recently saw this one on her site. I’m so in love with it. Smitten in fact. I’ve decided to move away from the pinks for the master bedroom and use blue and plums as an accent instead and this piece would be perfect.
I haven’t had a new black maxi skirt since before I was pregnant with V. My last one got really stretched out after two babies, so I got this one to replace it. Little bit flirty and super comfy.
Now that we’re moving back to California, we thought a new pair of shades were a good idea. P just got himself the Wayfarers and I stick with aviators or my “sunna shades” according to V.
I love makeup and I’ve noticed that a full coverage concealer is almost a necessity as I get older. It’s an absolute travesty considering I don’t remember having dark circles or fine lines this bad a few years ago. Those babies of mine have taken a toll on my sleep! I was using a traditional concealer brush for years, but started noticing that it was making my fine lines more noticeable. This brush does an amazing job of buffing out the concealer and now I have zero issues with my concealer settling in fine lines as long as I stick with my trusty Mac Pro Longwear Concealer and use a really good primer.
I mentioned this powder foundation in my photography makeup tutorial. I have some serious freckles and finding any kind of foundation product that doesn’t make me look like I caked ten pounds of makeup on my face is a big deal for me. It didn’t work very well with the kabuki brush I have from Bare Minerals, so I went ahead and splurged on the smaller bamboo brush meant for the powder. Despite the name, I’d say this is a medium coverage product (which I prefer) based on how much of my freckles show through when I wear it. This will be my go to foundation/powder combo for a very long time.
5. Kid Stuff
So technically this isn’t a new find, but it’s been extra good to us lately for multiple reasons. I’ve tried a ton of different carriers and this one is hands down without a doubt the best I’ve ever used. The built in chair harness has been a game changer for us. A lot of Korean restaurants don’t have high chairs, so eating out is tricky if you don’t carry around your own booster seat. We just strap E on, head out to dinner and convert the carrier into the chair harness when we get there. It’s also much more comfortable for bigger/older kids. Our kiddos are 30 lbs(18 mo) and 35 lbs(almost 4 yo). E is big for his age and I’m just 5’2″. I can carry him easily and comfortably without a problem. V is obviously much longer since she’s older, but P can carry her on his back for a pretty long time. She was super tired from walking around the city and asked if she could sleep. I carried E on my hip and P strapped her onto his back and we put the sleeping hood up to support her head while she slept. She slept like that for nearly two hours. It’ll be a sad day when both kids outgrow the carrier.
Have any of your own favorite finds? How about appliance recommendations? I’m looking into a new washer and dryer for the San Diego house (random, but necessary).
