Finding a simple lip color with subtle tint has always been on my beauty list. I have tried quite a few and liked them but recently stumbled on a color that is literally perfection. It adds just the right amount of peachy color and can be worn dressed up or down! Goes perfectly with my beauty routine since it’s so basic 😉
The lip color is MAC Powder Kiss Lipstick and it’s called “Mull It Over”, it’s the prettiest pop of peachy pink. I always get overwhelmed by how many colors MAC offers so I went in store to try them all out with my skin tone. This color was the perfect hue for spring & summer and could go with just about any outfit! My second favorite was the “Scattered Petals” which was more of a light pale pink that added just the right amount of rosy pink to my lips! For whatever reason, I was slightly more drawn to the “Mull It Over” and ended up going with that one!
Another beauty item I’ve been trialing recently is my mascara/primer. I’ve NEVER used mascara primer IN MY LIFE until recently and I do think it makes a pretty big difference but I still only use it for events/special occasions. This mascara/primer combination is pretty dynamite when you used in combination or separate! The mascara is one that I have been using for quite awhile. I go back and forth between this one and Charlotte Tillbury! I think they’re both pretty equivalent!
What are your plans for Mother’s Day weekend?!
You may remember when I said that we were heading somewhere really special a few weeks back and I AM SO EXCITED to stay at Mohonk Mountain House in upstate NY for the weekend! My dream location (I just love upstate NY) and surrounded by lakes and mountains! Brings me right back to our days in Switzerland and Austria 😉 We will be hiking, swimming and I am fitting in a little spa session on Saturday morning! Wahoo!
We officially ordered our baby chicks! I used an online farm recommended by my friend, Cori and I cannot wait for those little nuggets to arrive! Later today I am working on setting up their little nursery! The coop is getting a roof today (or rather the run is getting a roof) and then we need to add nesting boxes onto our coop! Slowly, but surely coming along!
If you live near a Trader Joes, do yourself a favor and pick up some beautiful azaleas! A very indoor friendly plant that are pretty hard to kill and GORGEOUS to look at. While you’re there, scoop up the peony blossom candle and hand soap 😉
The first winner of my May giveaway will be chosen tomorrow morning! Winner takes home my amazing leather handbag ($170), an initial necklace ($65) and a huge box of amazing goodies from yours truly (Target gc, one of my favorite books, plant, etc) To enter, just like my IG feed photos for the past 1 week (Fri-Fri) and you’re in! 😉
The playhouse reveal is coming soon I promise! They have to come back on May 21st to finish a few things and then I will show you guys!
