Grace’s 8: November 2017

Time seems to be flying too quickly lately! And so I missed my October Grace’s 8. Oops!!! Anyway, we’re back on track this month with 8 things I am really loving at the moment. They are all SO good! Read on to learn more about why I love each of these things… or click the graphic to shop! Enjoy! xo

ONE // Blackhead Nose Pack. These are basically extreeeeeme Biore strips. I love them. It’s a bit more of a process as there are three steps, but the results are totally worth it as they do a better job getting all of the gunk out. The first strip opens up pores, the second one is a lot likea Biore strip and pulls out the gunk, and the third closes pores back up. I have a pore strip addiction and like these so much better than the Biore ones. You just need to have a little more time to dedicate to the process.

TWO // BaubleBar Everyday Fine. I was so excited to learn that BaubleBar has launched their “everyday fine” jewelry line… a line of pieces that are just perfect for every day wear. The pieces are 18k gold plated sterling silver… so a nice step in between fine and costume jewelry… making for a really good price for really beautiful delicate pieces. My personal favorites are this layered necklace and these hoop earrings.

THREE // The Super Elixir. I will fully admit that I am a total sucker for celebrity products (helllllo MDNA Skincare) but I received a sample of this at a party (it was a 3 day supply) and I liked it so much that I ordered the full size jar. It is expensive but it’s packed with good stuff. I don’t have it every day, but if I know it’s going to be one of those days… you know the ones where you are so busy you forget to eat, let alone eating your veggies, I have this first thing in the morning.

FOUR // Jenni Kayne Fur Mules. I have a furry shoe obsession and I just love those. Yeah, they are kind of crazy, but they look great when worn with more casual pieces. I love mine with a big sweater and boyfriend jeans. The key is to keep everything else reallllly simple as they make quite a statement.

FIVE // Rebecca Atwood x LAKE Pajamas. Proud big sister moment! My sister Becca designed a line of PJs with my absolute favorite pajama brand, LAKE! I first started wearing Lake a year ago. I loved them so much that I bought them for my whole family for Christmas. When my sister decided to collaborate with them, I was in second heaven. Her gorgeous prints, paired with their ultra soft cotton… it’s a perfect match!

SIX // Something Navy x Treasure & Bond Sweater. Oh my goodness this is the best sweater ever. I bought it in emerald green (natch) and am planning to go back for the pink and maybe beige. It’s oversized and comfy (definitely size down!) and absolutely perfect with jeans. I got it on Monday and have already worn it twice… ha!

SEVEN // Lelet Hair Clip. With my new short hair I can do all sorts of cute things. Namely, wear headbands and cute little clips. It felt like too much with long hair. I love these alphabet hair clips… they’re the perfect way to pin back a layer when I pull back my hair… and add a little personality to whatever I am wearing.

EIGHT // J.Crew Velvet Hair Bow. These bows are just the cutest!!! I love them and ordered in all three colors. I am terrible ta tying bows in my own hair so what a great solution.

Disclosure: I received the flats from Jenni Kayne, the pajamas from my sister,  and the Blackhead Nose Pack. Everything else was purchased with my own money.

    Gosh – what incredible picks, I love them all this month! Those pjs look fantastic – I’ve been wanting to try out Lake and this might be the perfect opportunity. Also, glad to hear that you like the Super Elixir – I’ve been wanting to give it a try!

    oooo need to try those blackhead strips, my nose is always so bad and haven’t found anything I really like!

    Also – yes to fur mules!

      Try these!!! Also, I read a tip to exfoliate your nose with baking soda first. I haven’t tried it yet but apparently makes a big difference!

    Great round up Grace! I just sent my sister a link to your sister’s pajamas ( Christmas hint!) and I’m a suckers for hoops! I might have to buy the Bauble Bar pair as a Christmas present to myself. I have a 14k pair( snagged from the Nordie’s sale) and a handmade sterling pair I bought at the Portland art fair, but it’s nice to have different sizes. They go with everything. Also tempted by the sweater. Love your favorite eight lists!

  5. I’m so wanting those bow hair ties but my hair isn’t very long so not sure how much I will use- they are just too cute! I want to try out that blackhead pack now too!
    xoxo, Jenna
