Shopbop Friends & Family Event


The main things on my shopping list right now are dresses to wear to all the weddings and events we have coming up this spring / summer. For some reason, it’s been hard to find wedding-appropriate dress that I like that aren’t black (I’m just so sick of wearing black), aren’t backless (too much effort) and aren’t $1000 (otherwise THIS would be in my closet ASAP). Luckily Shopbop’s Friends & Family Event is this week and now through April 9th you can save 25% off sitewide with code SPRING25 (some designer exclusions). I’ve got a few of my dress picks below already in my cart but I can’t stop thinking about a few pairs of shoes as well – these bright espadrilles have been on my wish list for awhile and these studded ones are just so good! What’s on your shopping list right now?

ONE | Diptyque Rosafolia Candle (limited edition) TWO | Guerlain Terracotta Natural Healthy Glow Powder Duo THREE | YSL Fusion Ink Foundation FOUR | Dior Rouge Dior Baume Natural Lip Treatment in #758 Lys Rouge + #688 Diorette FIVE | Charlotte Tilbury “Filmstar Bronze & Glow” Sculpt and Highlight Palette

I almost can’t believe it’s almost April – this year has really flown by so far! My skin was kind of crazy throughout the winter so I didn’t experiment with too many new products but these are a few that I’ve been loving lately. I guess this Dyptique candle isn’t really a beauty product, but since home fragrance is often associated with personal fragrance I went ahead and included it! I love the floral print on this limited edition jar and the scent is a combination of fresh green and rose that’s not too sweet. I know I’ll be burning it a lot over the next few months – it’s perfect for spring! It’s already sold out at a lot of places but you can still buy it here or here.

On the makeup front, I’m loving Guerlain’s new Terracotta Natural Healthy Glow Powder Duos – I chose shade 02 because the “brunettes” shades looked too warm online, but in my opinion, even the “blondes” shades are considerably warmer than they appear in the product photos (Sunny has great swatches of all 4 shades). The two shades are meant to be swirled together to add a healthy glow to your complexion – on my medium/tan skin this particular shade adds a very natural wash of color. It’s a soft/silky powder and relatively sheer compared to other more traditional bronzers, but for this time of year it’s great for adding just a bit of warmth. Read more
