friday favorites!


1. Here is something that’s true; Korean beauty products do not fuck around. Here is something that’s also true; Belif Aqua Bomb is one of my favorite things I’ve ever put on my face. It’s beyond moisturizing without being heavy or greasy. And it doesn’t have any sulphates, phthalates or parabens. Lucky you they apparently have it at Sephora now so you don’t have to go traipsing all over the internet like my dumb ass did. 

2. This baby blanket has all the coolness of a Mexican serape, without the Itchy and Scratchy show. The serape blankets I have feel like they have only a slightly higher thread count than burlap. This is super soft and is Sherpa on one side! I found mine at Granola Babies in Costa Mesa, but the one I hunted down on Little Messengers shop looks almost exactly like it! I just think these are so special. I love the colors and how sophisticated and not babyish they are. 

3. I’ve had this app since the day it came out, but I’ve really only been playing around with it recently. It can truly take your photos to another level. I’ve always been jealous of people with Instagram pages that look all cohesive and lovely. I some day hope to get there, possibly right after I find time to shave my own legs. But for now I’ll just smurf around and have fun with it. It takes a little bit to master and really grasp the full genius of this editing app. Don’t get me wrong, it’s very user friendly. I think at first glance it seems like just another filtering app, but the subtleties are where it’s at. I think the key is to play around with filters at very low percentages, don’t over do it. One of my favorite things is that on the A Color Story Instagram page they post user photos with the “recipe” of how they created the look so you can replicate. 

4. I always thought I hated abstract art. But recently I started looking for something to hang in the space above my kitchen table and wanted to think outside the realm of what I typically pick. I realized one day that literally every piece of art in my house is either a portrait of a person or an animal. Landscapes are a big snooze-fest, so I started looking into abstract art. It turns out I still pretty much hate it. BUT, what I don’t hate, I LOVE. It’s very polarizing, but that’s super neat.  I happened upon this artist named Mari Orr in my quest and her stuff is a tiny bit of magic.  I could get lost in her brush strokes, which she highlights singularly sometimes on her Instagram.

Friday Favorites!

I’m starting a new feature where on Fridays I’ll be posting a few of the items I’m currently crushing on!  There’s always some new thing for babies or my home or beauty/health and wellness that I’m obsessing over every week.  This week they all come from Etsy shops because I’ve been cruising my Etsy app at night after the child goes to sleep.  (TBH probably a lot of these posts in the future will come from there because this bitch loves her some Etsy)

1.  Neon Plant Hangers!  I ordered this yellow gem from The Vintage Loop because I LOVE pops of neon in a room and I’ve been looking for a cool plant hanger.  They come in lots of colors but the neon yellow, hot pink, and bright blue are the COOOO-LEST.

2.  I ordered these sweet little snake socks  from Hady’s Closet because, I mean, COME ON!  Are these the cutest ever or what?  I’ve been looking for knee socks for River that weren’t too girly. Now that he’s crawling and the weather is warmer, I wanted a way to keep his fat little baby legs protected on our hard wood without him having to wear pants all the time.  Knee socks make diaper changes so much easier than pants, and I just couldn’t pass  up these ssssweet sssssilly sssssnakes!

3.  I found these Fox Socks on May Cutie Boutique while on the hunt for River’s snake socks!  They were oh so cute, but far too girly for Bruiser, so I just had to get them for my niece.

4.  Ok, this Rainbow Highlighter from Bitter Lace Beauty might seem a little out there, and it actually is, but it’s also truly magical!  A girl in one of my Facebook groups posted about this and it was so gorgeous on her I wanted to cry.  It’s subtle enough to not look crazy, just like the light is hitting you perfectly and your unicorn ancestry is shining through.  Also, she said it smells like cotton candy! Sadly, do to high demand they are currently out of stock, but you better believe I have my email on their list to be notified when they get more in.
