friday favorites april 21

1. We are loving everything in Aerin Lauder's new Summer 2017 Collection for Williams Sonoma! How darling are these scalloped rim dinner plates...and these blue and white appetizer plates??? 

2. Need graduation gift ideas? We think this limited edition bike from Serena & Lily is precious -- and it will get your new college student to class on time...in style! 

3. J.Crew has some great new arrivals - and everything is 25% off through Sunday...

4. Of course we love this off-the-shoulder blue & white top (pictured on right) from J.Crew, but H&M also has a lookalike option for less! They have tons of other great blue & white striped basics too. 

5. Tory Burch has a great 30% off spring sale right now...we are loving this dress and all of the whimsical new prints...more of our current fashion favorites .

6. Mother's Day is coming up! Mark and Graham is always good places to find gifts and who wouldn't want to receive a classic monogrammed necklace? (Could also be a great graduation gift!)

7. Anyone heading to the Kentucky Derby? How about Steeplechase? Don't forget your hat! We love this striped one.

8. We're loving summer scarves right now and we think this one from Madewell is really sweet. 

9. Last day for 15% off (everything) at World Market! We're in spring cleaning mode and are loving their organizational baskets...and always a good time to shop their fabulous outdoor furniture....more of our outdoor favorites here. 

10. Need a quick pillow update? We love these printed beauties along with our other vintage favorites from Chairish.

 

 

our beauty routine

We've been receiving so many inquiries lately about what beauty products we use .......and honestly y'all we couldn't be more flattered- THANK YOU!!! So today we are sharing ALL of our favorites!

While we're on the topic, we're also excited to share that we were recently interviewed for a fun new Nashville based podcast called "Mirror Mirror" ... it will feature new women every week sharing their beauty secrets. We had so much fun dishing all things beauty with Allison and Jesse and talking more about our favorites. Our episode is now available to download

1. Bobbi Brown All-Over Bronzing Gel - We love to mix this product with our Giorgio Armani Fluid Sheer for a more subtle bronzing effect...we "up" the bronzing ratio for a more sun-kissed summer glow

2. Lavett and Chin - No. 02 Pomade - flexible hold, water-soluble pomade - creates the perfect smooth pony tail and smells amazing! Sold out at many retailers and we understand why!! 

3. Bobbi Brown Retouching Wand - extra light...perfect for under-eye, highlighting, or anywhere you need a quick touchup  

4. Stila Convertible Lip Color - in "Gerbera" - creates the perfect "flushed cheek glow"...we especially love it with a touch of our RMS Beauty Living Luminizer

5. Nars Velvet Lip Liner - we love this liner in the "playa dorado" shade - it's the perfect "orangey-red"...we sometimes layer it over our Bobbi Brown lip liner in pale pink (this is our basic everyday color) to create a softer layered peachy lip

6. Sonia Kashuk Brow Definer in taupe...we've been researching the perfect blonde eyebrow liner for years and this one is our FOREVER FAVORITE (no red undertones)!!

7. Jo Malone Orange Blossom Cologne...perfect for summer; reminds us of growing up in Miami!

8. Large Clear Cosmetic Case from Madewell - we love how we can fit everything in this case and we can see it all! 

9. Giorgio Armani Fluid Sheer - can be used alone, mixed with foundation, or mixed with our bronzer above (Beauty "game changer"!!)

10. L'Oreal Paris Telescopic Mascara in "blackest black" - we love a good drugstore find and this creates the perfect natural, defined lashes - no clumps! 

11. Dior Lip Glow "Color Revival Balm" - we use the "sheer pink" shade...we also love it layered over our Bobbi Brown liner for our go-to everyday "natural but better" lip-color (not too shiny) 

12. RMS Beauty Living Luminizer - last but definitely not least!! When you see a model in a magazine who has that perfect dewey glow/highlighted skin...this is how it's achieved. We promise this will be your absolute new favorite...and it's super easy to use. 

We are kind of obsessed with the latest J.Crew catalog.....so many fun new spring releases!  And...we really love when our favorite new pieces are 25% off!  We just ordered up this and this and...who could resist these!?!  Hope you are enjoying this warm weather as much as we are!  You can see more of our warm weather favorites by clicking here.  Happy Shopping and please share with us your favorite finds!
