I lied on my Weight Watchers list.


   I put down that I had 3 eggs... but they were Cadbury chocolate eggs.

I have missed posting my loves the last couple weeks! I'm back! Well ... better late than never, right?

I have been totally out of touch with the Easter holiday. Up until a few days ago, I actually thought it was about a month away. Yesterday I made an early morning visit to Target and did all my Easter shopping. Somewhere in that hour and a half (yes, I was in there that long), the Easter spirit finally found me. I can't wait to have the boys wake up to a basket of goodies on Sunday.

We don't usually do anything spectacular, instead opting to spend the day together at home. We dye eggs the night before, and usually make a nice Easter dinner, but we don't go overboard on the gifts and festivities. It is really just a day to enjoy each other.  I'm looking forward to it!

This week I am loving ...
 
These neutral jackets. Love! They are fresh, spring-y and belong in my closet. [linen & cotton print heritage topper/Audrey asymmetrical blazer]


In continuing with my new found Easter spirit, I'm really loving these treats! In my hands these cookies wouldn't look quite so amazing, but the nests and cupcakes could certainly make an appearance at my house this weekend. [cookies 1/cupcakes/cookies 2/nests]


This stuff is magic and I can't get enough. It was a Birchbox sample that I finally got around to trying this week. You can use it instead of foundation or underneath. I use my regular products (serum, sunscreen, eye serum) then apply this. It blends in seamlessly, renders foundation totally unnecessary, and it doesn't ball up (my biggest beauty product pet peeve).

I only need a couple dabs to cover my whole face, and they sent a deluxe size sample so it should last for a bit. I was afraid to look at the price since it is true love, but I can handle the $27 tag. I typically skip traditional foundation when the temperature rises, so this will likely be my spring and summer go-to skin product. [Marcelle BB Cream in Golden Glow]

Short and sweet. About six weeks to go and blogging will probably come back into focus for me. I've missed the level of investment I had before this last semester and its craziness ensued, but I simply have to keep my eye on the prize. Sweet dreams!


Loves on a Thursday

    1. I missed linking up! The weeks have been flying by for me... which is good since I have been overwhelmingly busy. I ripped that jacket out of the catalog and have been eyeing it ever since. It really is lovely.
