Hi! Just popping in with a fun little list with some things I’m loving right now. Pretty dresses and comfy cozy things… and (of course) a slew of beauty products! It’s a kinda random mish mosh of things but that’s the best kind of list in my book.
A Few Things I’m Loving Right Now
On the more random front, two things I have been loving and am going to do separate, in-depth posts about are Haus Apertifs and my Theragun. I get the absolute worst knots in my shoulders and neck and the Theragun has been such a godsend for that. It is so incredibly effective and I love the mobile app (it’s cool because it controls the gun, giving you little routines to do). Again I will do a proper review but I’m still learning all the ways to use it (right now I do my neck and traps, my IT band, and my hips). As for Haus, the apertifs are delicious and if you’re bringing a bottle over a friend’s outdoor space, they make for fun spritzes (and they’re always a conversation starter as the flavor profiles are so unique and special).
Also everything Ulla J0hnson’s been doing lately is just SO GOOD. This dress is very high on my wish list, I really need it to go on sale! I love her.

Recent Jewelry Favs
Brinker & Eliza: I LOVE this brand. Such incredible jewels. Their showstopper necklace has become one of my most worn necklaces. I love how bold (but lightweight it is!!!!). The matching bracelet is gorgeous as well.
Alphabet Beads: I love layering these alphabet bracelets from BaubleBar with my more expensive jewelry for a casual look.
Asha: I have loved Asha for a while (I have one of her charm necklaces too) but I get stopped and asked about these earrings every time I wear them. They’re exquisite… and they remind me a bit of lotus flowers.
Cozy Cozy Things
I did a giveaway with Chappywrap and to say thank you they sent me the green plaid blanket I’d been eyeing. Truly just the coziest comfiest blanket ever. My only complaint is that when I read with it I always fall asleep! It’s the best blanket.
This Amazon hoodie is so soft, too. Very very cozy and just a great fit. It’s men’s sizing but I took my usual size for an oversized and comfy fit.
On the Beauty Front
If you follow me on Instagram you know I’ve been playing around with this pretty palette. It’s so good. Perfect for an ethereal wash of shimmer and color. I absolutely love it. The key things I’ve found in getting the glitter to stay put have been to use Urban Decay’s primer first and also a wet shadow brush.
This eye cream – WOW. It’s magic. Review to come but it is the most effective eye cream I’ve tried when it comes to zapping bags and crepey skin under my eyes. The results are temporary but it’s so effective – I might love it as much as I love Dr. Bader.
I always forget how much I love Caudalie’s beauty elixir but it’s truly such a wonderful product.
Tarte! Shape Tape concealer has been a godsend for my dark circles, and I love the Maracuja juicy lip – it’s like gloss but in a convenient little stick. I have a code through the end of September with them (Grace15 gets you 15% off!)

Hi Grace! I want to get a Chappy Wrap but on the edge since it has acrylic and my skin is pretty sensitive (can’t STAND the feel of acrylic in sweaters). Is the acrylic noticeable? Everyone keeps saying they’re so soft!!!
No, not for me – it’s literally the softest blanket ever.
Thank you for this post! I too love random “favorite things” lists. But I’m commenting because I had to share, the other day I was browsing on Rent the Runway and saw and dress and immediately thought, that’s a Grace dress (and yes, I realize we don’t know each other but we’re friends in my head :)). And it was totally a Ulla Johnson dress!
Aw I love that. Her pieces are so fab. I should look on Rent the Runway, that’s a great idea!!!!
What’s your bra situation with that pretty back of the dress?!
I just wore a pretty bralette and let it peek in the back. It doesn’t show much!
I have 2 of the Alphabet beads from BaubleBar … one each with my two nephews’ names. Love them!
Aw I love that!!!!
I’m just popping in to say JFC. You’re becoming Carly.
Thank you for the compliment!
I adore your mini dress so much!
Girl the dress you are wearing is everything!

Good morning Grace,
The concealer is excluded from promotions so you know.
Thank you for this blog, be well
OH – thank you for telling me, that’s really good to know.
