Things I'm Loving; May 2019
remember the weekend cast? well…I can’t say I’m really bringing it back because we’re 4 weeks away from the arrival of baby katz, but I do miss it and so I’m trying to revive a more sporadic update of cool stuff. And so…
I wanted to switch to chemical-free cosmetics this year, and I had a lot of trouble finding a mascara that I really liked. I tried a bunch including Kjaier Weis, Well People and RMS before finding Ilia, which is INCREDIBLE. It really is the only one that lasted throughout the entire day for me and didn’t clump weirdly. Even if you don’t care about your makeup being natural, I recommend you give it a shot!
I renewed my Hulu subscription just to watch Shrill, which this trailer can explain a lot better than I can. It’s is adorable, endearing, funny, and so easy to relate it. I’ve been home sick most of the weekend, and I’m already halfway through it.
Another thing that has completely gripped my attention is Michelle Obama’s book: Becoming. I have not put it down since starting and I am embarrassed about how little I knew about the former FLOTUS. She speaks so eloquently about the challenges women face all throughout life, but especially in the workplace and trying to find family balance, and identity outside of family life. I am personally connecting with this book so much more than i anticipated. If you’re not great at long books, this would be an awesome audio book to listen to.
I bought my mom fancy shampoo as a present and then made the mistake of using it last time I was at her house. Ooops. I can now say this Oribe Gold Lust set is the best shampoo/conditioner that I have ever used. It made my hair look like I’d just gotten a blow out. Mom, don’t be surprised if it goes missing one of these days….
I made this meatball recipe using lamb the other night and wowza were they delicious. I love the video breakdown of each step and how you can make the salsa verde at the same time. Also, minimal cleanup because they’re baked instead of fried.
Just bought myself these madewell sandals for summer because how cute are they! And now they are 20% off.
All of these candles are intoxicatingly-delicious-smelling and would make a fab mama’s day gift.
And, that’s a wrap! See you guys l8r… maybe with a tater tot hanging out on my hip!
