The Current Favorites

monthly favorites

The last two and a half months have been a whirlwind of both Jeff and I starting new jobs, and the house being in shambles from a lengthy bathroom renovation. But as most things do, the dust is settling and we’re finding routines in our day to day so I’m excited to make space for this corner of the internet once again! First up on the list is a list of my current favorites.

Tripp Bootie (in cognac)

It’s safe to say that I’ve been on the hunt for a good pair of brown leather boots for ohhh 2 years now, but I’ve either been too cheap to drop $$$ on a good pair, or too impatient to break in a cheaper pair. It was only by mere chance that I found my new favorite pair of boots. I had just finished trying on yet another pair of $$$ boots that I didn’t want to pay for and decided I’d quickly run up and down the Nordstrom sale aisle. I ended up finding one pair of Tripp booties in my size and the color I wanted, for ONLY 45 DOLLARS. The best part? There has been zero break-in period, they have been comfortable from day one and they’re everything I want in a brown bootie. Worth the 2 year wait, I’d say. And now I’m really eyeing that Taupe color linked above.

Harry Potter and the Order of Phoenix

I started reading the 5th HP a few weeks ago and I’ve found myself loving every minute. I mean it’s no secret that I’m a big HP fan, seeing as how it’s my phone ringtone and all… but it’s been a while since I’ve opened up one of the books. Feels good to be back with my wizarding friends.

Juice Beauty

In an effort to put less toxins into my body, I’ve recently switched over all of my makeup to toxic-free, clean beauty products. I knew that I wanted to leap into the world of green beauty at some point, I just felt a little overwhelmed at the task of doing so. So, I turned to YouTube and found the app Think Dirty to help me in the process. Both of these places led me to the brand Juice Beauty by Gwenyth Paltrow. All of her products are cruelty-free (bless) and have an ingredient list that I’m happy to put on my face! Right now I’m currently using their liquid foundation, the concealer pot, and finishing powder. Love them all.

Urban Outfitters Shower Curtain

Our bathroom is just about ready to be revealed here on the blog, just waiting for those pesky baseboards to get installed (ahem, husband ;))…. but one of my favorite details of the room is our Urban Outfitters shower curtain. It’s a super light cotton with tied tassels at the bottom and sage green stripes. I love that it’s neutral with a small addition of color to brighten up the space.
