Happy Monday – hope you had a great weekend! Today’s post is a semi random assortment of things I love right now. Pretty new jewelry, my new favorite candle, an art exhibit I CANNOT WAIT FOR, some really good beauty products, and more! Hope you enjoy this little list… I love putting these together and I’m pretty excited about everything I’ve featured!
BaubleBar’s Candy Colored Lucite Earrings
OMG. When I saw BaubleBar’s lucite collection, I dropped what I was doing and bought three pairs. I got these in clear and green and these in peach. Every time I wear them I get so many compliments – they’re just fun and feel like candy. Lifesavers, perhaps? I reaally need to stop buying resin and lucite earrings but fell hard for these and don’t regret them a bit. (The green are my favorite, I think.)
Spacey: a new way to collect (affordable, chic) art.
One of the questions I get asked most tends to be about buying affordable art and haven’t really had a great place to point you guys to. If you’re looking for gorgeous art that’s very well priced, this site is going to be your new destination. Spacey is a new way to collect art and it launches TODAY. Every season they’ll partner with 15 emerging artists to create limited-edition prints. All prints are signed (AND FRAMED) and start at just $95. For a signed, framed print this is an incredible good deal. On top of that there’s a great cause behind it – they donate a percentage of proceeds to art students seeking financial aid.
I am a tough crowd and was blown away by the first collection – the prints are beautiful. To peruse and shop, go here and enter the password: unlockart.
A Handful of Fab Beauty Products
Limecrime Bushy Brow // My friend told me that she likes this better than Boy Brow, which got me to listen. After using it daily for a few weeks, I have to say that I agree with her! The comb is perfect for getting your brows to look fluffy and bushy; it holds all day; and “dirty blonde” is my perfect match. Ob-sessed. It tames your brows perfectly and keeps them under control all day long. Highly recommend.
Revlon Lip Mousse // This stays on all day, doesn’t dry my lips, and gives you that matte look but feels like velvet. My favorite shades are “dusty rose” (the prettiest pink – wearing it here!) and “sunset” (the perfect red but with a tiny bit of orange/coral in it).
Coqui Coqui Orange Blossom Perfume // This was a re-discovery. I bought this perfume years ago on vacation (read more about the perfumery here). The Coqui Coqui blasts this perfume all throughout the hotel + property. You step on site and immediately smell orange blossoms. I forgot how much I love it and have been wearing it on cold winter days when I want to pretend I’m somewhere beautiful and warm.
I’m so excited for this show – I’m going on Wednesday! This is the largest US exhibition of her work in ten years. It’s not only a display of her paintings, drawings, and photographs; but also her personal belongings (her clothing!! Her jewelry!) I think we can all agree that Frida Kahlo’s style was just as important and iconic as her work and this is going to be a good one. You have to buy tickets in advance – it runs through May 12th.
I was sent this candle and didn’t expect to like it – not really a pot smoker? Then I smelled it and WHOA. It smells so good. I tend to prefer manly/woodsy types of candles and this is up my alley. The notes of pepper, patchouli, and and sandalwood all come through; but not in a dirty hippie sort of way… it’s spicy and sexy. Love it. (image credit)
