Friday Favorites

First of all, a big congrats to Will and Kate and their son Prince George! This is such an exciting and beautiful time in their lives, and the whole world watched on in support and anticipation for the newborn heir.

This has been quite an uneventful week for me... Even with work, I haven't done much but finish up some design work and build up more Pinterest boards, which has made me realize I don't want to end up working for a dot com job because I'm missing the collaboration of ideas and seeing real results instead of just site maintenance. I guess you could say I'm missing my school and club environment. Summer is a bit dry and I just want everyone back in my life!

As you can tell from a couple posts ago, I've started listening to Brandon and Leah and I love their sound. It's very upbeat and I can't stop listening to Life Happens and Showstopper. Life Happens reminds me a bit of Colbie Caillat's Think Good Thoughts which is one of my favorite songs ever and always puts me in a good mood (:

This week I rediscovered my love for the NARS Charade eyeshadow duo. I used to use the purple shade all over my lid which was a bit heavy for summer, but I tried blending the mauve into my crease over NYX True Taupe eyeshadow and bringing the smoky purple under my lower lash line with black gel liner on top. It turned out really pretty and is a sophisticated take on the colored bottom-eye trend that I can wear to the office!

Now that the sun is finally coming out to play, I plan to enjoy my weekend outdoors with maybe a little stop by the pool and volunteering at the local kite festival. I picked up a book at the library that I plan on starting, and perhaps I'll sit outside with a refreshing drink or two and soak up a bit of that sunshine. That means I can also wear my new sandals which I have yet to break in... Ouch! Just a couple more wears until they will be nice and snug on my toes, I hope. It'll be an exciting weekend to perk up a slow week. TGIF!
