What I'm Loving...

I don't know about you, but I'm ready for summer. Anyone have anything fun planned yet? I'm hoping for some vacations, days at the lake, and we have to help 2 of our siblings move. By "we" I mean Jared has to lift furniture. I feel tired thinking about it. I think I need a nap now.
Here's what I'm loving:

Bath & Body Works Orange Sapphire
Has it become obvious from recent What I'm Loving... posts that there's been some Bath & Body Works sales? Well, recently there was buy 3, get 3 free, and I had a $10 off coupon. I'm not sure how that all works out but I think they paid me to get, like, 10 bottles of stuff. That's how it worked in my mind anyway. I don't think I've picked up any actual bath products at Bath & Body Works in the last couple of years because I didn't recognize hardly any of the scents, including Orange Sapphire. Why didn't anyone tell me about this?! It's amazing and perfect for summer.

Tarina Tarantino Sparklicity Pure
I picked up the Sparklicity Pure from Sephora during Chic Week. I'd held off on buying it because I was afraid it was more of a glitter, but it's definitely not. It's a shimmer so it can be used multiple ways - on the brow bone, on tops of the cheek bones, on the cupid's bow, on top of your lip gloss - yeah. Multiple ways. And it's gorgeous. It has enough sparkle that I'm not sure it'd be great for everyday wear, but any other time? It's a go.

Inspiration Board
Having my inspiration board hanging in my closet has been more helpful than I could have imagined. Outfits and color combinations I like are right in front of me for reference while I'm picking out my clothes for the day. It also came in handy when I was figuring out what to pack for our vacation a few weeks ago. Why didn't I do this sooner?!

Melinda Maria Teeny Pod Bangle
When HauteLook had a Melinda Maria sales a few weeks ago I was just a little bit excited. Ok, I was a lot excited. When I saw there were Teeny Pod Bangles in a variety of colors (I've wanted some for months), I took it as a sign. And ordered 3. I got 2 in Blue Topaz and 1 in Ruby. I fully believe this was a good decision.

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

Well you know I'll back a Melinda Maria purchase any time...and i walked by BBW the other day. Didn't recognize a scent, but do need some lotion. And some glitter to wear around the house all day long so as to terrify the neighbor who I've discovered said he was a Creative Director for action sports headgear when in reality he is a freelance graphic t-shirt guy. Hmmmmmm. Don't mess with a recruiter. It's my JOB to find out what these people do!!

Aaaand I do believe I've gone off on a rant.

I guess it's what I'm loving...or not.

Love orange sapphire! I won a large container of it at a party, and I'll be honest. I was a bit skeptical, due to the 'disco-y' label. But LOVE. So glad I was introduced to it.

An inspiration board (or even just a notebook) is at the very top of my to-do list. And I know I'll be asking the same thing... WHY didn't I do this sooner??

sacramento said...

I have been recomended Make up For Ever Professional eye liner.Have you got any info on that.
I always come to you when in doubt, but lovely Katie.


Love Melinda Maria!!! I have to try the new BBW flavor. I'm so ready to hit the beach :)

So I haven't been to B&B Works in a million years, and you're making me wonder why!! That scent sounds so good--how do you get all the coupons? Also, I love the inspiration board idea, I'm glad it's a success!

I love when Bath and Body Works has the buy 3 get 3 free deal! I take that as my time to stock up. And those bracelets are gorgeous :) I agree, good decision.
