Coffee Conversations

Hello and Happy Friday! Mike had an early morning wake-up, which means that I was up the earliest I’ve been all week. I used to wake up earlier, like in the 6 o’clock hour every morning, and loved it! I’m much more productive in the morning and enjoy the quietness. But, my body has gotten into a routine of not going to sleep until the 12 o’clock hour, which means I’m sleeping in a bit later in the mornings. It feels good to be up and going today, especially since I’ve got quite a few things on my to-do list to knock out.

We’re heading to my sister’s this weekend for a quick visit, and then on to somewhere else for a little mini getaway! I’m looking forward to having a little time out of the office and enjoying some warmer weather. P.S. If you’re in the Raleigh, NC area, my sister and I are hosting a little shopping event at Madewell at Crabtree Valley Mall on Sunday, from 3-5pm. You can RSVP and get details here.

Speaking of Madewell, they’re currently running their Insider Event, which is 15% off your purchase for Madewell “Insiders”. All you have to do is sign up for their emails to get the discount. Plus, you get free shipping and returns as an Insider, so if you ever shop with them online, it makes sense! Here’s a look at my picks from the sale.

I’ve been using the NARS Sheer Glow Foundation for about a week or so and LOVE it. I totally get the hype. It’s medium, buildable coverage, applies like a dream, and lasts all day. I’ve also been using this new eyeshadow palette a lot. The colors are highly pigmented (a little goes a long way!) and look so pretty on the skin.

I’m definitely packing this tunic for our trip – it’s the perfect option with leggings for a long drive!

We finished season 2 of The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel and I miss it already! I was very pleasantly surprised by how much we both enjoy that show. Can’t wait for season 3!

We’re slowly, but surely getting things in for our kitchen. We have yet to schedule the actual install of the countertops (calling to get an update is on my to-do list), but a lot of the other elements are coming together. We’ve got counter stools, floating shelves, and the over-sink light already in-hand. I’m still searching for a main light fixture that just speaks to me…it’s been hard to find one! With each new thing that gets delivered, I get more and more anxious to see it all come together.

I love these for transitioning into the new season.

Have a great weekend!
