Current Faves: Binge-worthy series, beauty & more

Happy Sunday!

It’s been a while since I’ve posted here consistently. I figure every month or season I can write a favorites post on things I’m currently into like beauty, clothing, travel, or any good shows. No rules! Let me know what you think or if you have any comments.

Binge-worthy Shows

Current show I just binged: Sharp Objects on HBO. I would give it a 7/10. If you’re into dark, weird, mysterious murder-y shows in a no-name midwestern town full of gossip, I would say go for it. It’s a little slow, but I oddly enjoyed it. Each episode is a new revelation and you’ll be left guessing until the last episode. I feel like I would compare it to a Big Little Lies in that sense (which I absolutely can’t wait for season 2).  It’s not for everyone, so watch at your own risk!

Clothing & more

Been obsessed with sweaters by Lovers + Friends on Revolve lately:

This colorful, striped turtleneck I’m wearing in the photo above goes perfectly with skinny jeans or leggings. I am wearing a size XS, it runs oversized.

This AMAZING distressed sweater (available for pre-order & in several colors)

Love this soft pink balloon sleeve sweater. Would look perfect tucked into some high waisted Levis.

I am on the hunt for a nice brown leather belt to add to my wardrobe. I have my eye on this burberry one on Farfetch on sale for $150. Should I just do it?

Current Beauty Obsession

It’s rare for me to purchase the same product at Sephora over and over again. I love trying new brands or new lipstick colors and formulas. One brand I do buy over again is Buxom. Their Full-On™ Plumping Lip Cream Gloss is like butter. I get extremely dry and chapped lips in the winter and this is the only gloss I will use that won’t dry my lips out but instead moisturizes them. I use it down to the last drop.

OH and PS the perfect shades are Dolly or Hot Toddy. I have both 🙂

What I’ve been watching on YouTube

I love to follow resellers on Instagram. It’s incredible how they can find expensive $$$ designer items in a thrift store. The latest was @thedealqueen found an authentic Hermes belt at goodwill. Crazy! My favorite reseller to watch on youtube would be Jenna from @emptyhanger. Jenna is a full-time reseller with a killer closet. Her poshmark closet has major anthropologie/free people/boho vibes—and her grandma helps to thrift for her! She sends her boxes of designer items and tons of lululemon to sell. I love watching her Youtube channel for reselling tips, thrift hauls, what sold for her, and more. I could watch these videos for days.

I actually bought the headband I’m wearing in the picture above from Jenna’s closet. It was a new-with-tags anthropologie find from an estate sale she went to.

Upcoming Travels

I’m so excited to be leaving for the Bahamas in 12 days. We are staying at the Atlantis in Nassau and will be there for 4 nights with another couple. Send any recommendations!

The countdown begins: I officially have a work sabbatical starting May 1st. I have been with my company for over 5 years and with that comes one of our trips for two included. I chose our Adriatic Adventure: Croatia, Montenegro, Bosnia & Herzegovina, and Slovenia. I know basically nothing about these destinations so if you have any recommendations please share in the comments below. We are mainly sticking to our trip itinerary but will absolutely break away for a Dubrovnik King’s Landing tour :).

Thats all for now.

Don’t forget to leave a comment!
