Saturday

 This Saturday New York felt like it came alive. The weather was too beautiful not to walk to the park with a cute blanket and my Kindle (currently reading The Goldfinch).

New (and Old) Favorite Beauty Products

 I recently discovered some new-to-me products that I love, and I’ve also included some old ones I swear by. Here are some of my favorites:Screen Shot 2014-04-08 at 9.44.21 AM

 

MAKE EYE MAKE-UP REMOVER

The most effective yet gentle one I’ve found

This completely changed the texture of my lips, which was much needed after this winter

ZOYA NAILPOLISH REMOVER

I love everything from the smell to the way it dispenses the remover, and it conditions nails

LULU ORGANICS HAIR POWDER

A natural and great smelling way to extend the life of your blow out

BENEFIT THE PORE-FESSIONAL

An easy to use balm that minimizes the appearance of pores, and really works

HOURGLASS VEIL MINERAL PRIMER

The perfect thing to prep your skin before putting on make-up for a night out

BENEFIT STAY DON’T STRAY

Put this on before your concealer and eye shadow to ensure they don’t move, all day or all night long

 

Elevated Envelopes

One of my best friends is getting married this year and I had the pleasure of sending out the invitations for her bridal shower. I decided to use Minted for the invitations and envelopes. I love Minted’s designs and their customer service is outstanding.

I have some serious issues trying to write in a straight line and center things properly without assistance. I decided to buy a frame stamp for the front and a cute party stamp to add to the back of each envelope from Paper Source. I also made sure to buy the ink that dries instantly (some can take up to 10 minutes).

I found a free font thanks to pinterest and practiced my script before addressing the final envelopes.
