What I'm Loving...

Did everyone enjoy the short week? I know I did! Makes everything a little more bearable, doesn't it?
Here's what I'm loving:


Fall Weather

 Ok, so it doesn't look like that here, and those who experience a real fall would probably laugh at me, but it HAS felt much nicer lately! 80's in the day, 60's at night - that's fall in Alabama! Ok, so it was only for a couple of days, but I love it!


Using a Fluffy Brush for Concealer
 I first saw this on pixiwoo's YouTube channel and was skeptical. They use a MAC 224 in a lot of their tutorials to blend in their undereye concealer but why would you blend your undereye concealer with a fluffy brush? It looked amazing when they did it, but they have perfect skin so everything looks amazing on them. Anyway, this past week out of curiosity I grabbed my Sonia Kashuk blending brush (I'm not sure if that's the exact one I have, it's a dome shaped fluffy blending brush though) and WOW. I loved the results. Give it a try!


Dave Matthews - "Gravedigger"
Over the long weekend we were watching a Dave Matthews concert on TV and when this song come on I completely stopped everything for a few minutes to just listen to it. I'd forgotten how much I love it. Any song that can grab my attention like that gets a place on What I'm Loving...


Viktor & Rolf Flowerbomb
 Right now all I have is a sample of this but I am desperately wanting a full bottle. According to Sephora, it has "Sambac Jasmine, Centifolia Rose, Cattleya Orchid, Ballerina Freesia, and Patchouli" in it. I'm not even going to pretend like I know what all of that is (I mean, I know what an orchid is, but what's a cattleya orchid? Who gets to come up with this stuff anyway? What a great job...) but as far as I'm concerned it's amazing and I need a bottle of it sitting on my vanity. Soon. How many times can I shop at Sephora per week before Jared notices/gets suspicious? Hmm. Things to ponder.


Ok, so that's What I'm Loving right now! What about you?

Interesting on the concealer! I'm not sure how to use it really, but I have a tube of concealer and a fluffy MAC brush so I'll have to give it a try when I'm bored! Thanks for the tip!

Yeah, it's not so fall-like here in GA, not supposed to be below 90 in the near future. It's been downright HOT. But I'm waiting on those crisp days, hopefully sooner than later. I wear Flowerbomb and it's fabulous, highly recommend!!!

Bren said...

I'm loving the cooler weather as well. This summer has been full of days in the upper 90s and I'm so over it! I'm ready for fall to really start! :)

I haven't tried a fluffy brush with concealer, but I'll have to give it a try! I normally just use my finger to pat concealer in. Lol.

I'd say I love fall weather too... but unfortunately here in England we kind of skip Summer and Autumn... I always remember Spring of winter but have no knowledge of Autumn and Summer haha! However very looking forward to wearing my Autumn wardrobe this year!
