Happy Friday! We’re a little late getting this post up (busy day!) but we’re really trying our best to stick to the posting schedule! Our goal is to have at least three or four posts up a week and a Love Notes post up every Friday. This one’s coming in just under the wire, but I’ll count it as a success! 🙂
First up, did you see Emily Henderson’s dorm inspired post? We were so excited to see some Jenny’s Print Shop prints featured in her collage wall! I love what Emily and her team did here! The post is full of great tips if you are heading off to college, or if you are just trying to channel your inner 18 year old :). How many Print Shop prints can you spot?
Speaking of the shop, this week are are retiring four more prints to make room for four new prints that will hit the shop next Friday. Some of you have seen the sneak peeks on my stories and you know they are going to be good!! 🙂
We’ll be saying goodbye for good to Prickly Pear, Lines, Carnival and BQE and you know what that means – they’ve all been dropped to $8 in the shop. Grab ’em before they’re gone for good! Some people have mentioned that they buy the download even if they don’t have a current place for the print, just so they can have the option to print down the road.
I also wanted to mention that Michael’s is running a sale on frames right now and everyone’s favorite 24×36 inch frames are only $16 instead of $50! If you use Kinkos or Staples to get an Engineer Print for about $6, you are getting yourself a HUGE piece of art for not a lot of money! I think BQE and ANN STREET and both of Lynne’s floral abstracts look especially amazing as Engineer Prints.
Lots of you have DMed me to ask about my eye makeup when I do Stories so I thought I’d post the products and routine for you here. I am all about cheap makeup that you can get at Target (except for my expensive-but-worth-it sunscreen foundation). I also need my makeup routine to be fast – like five minutes max start to finish. I’ve used this exact same covergirl eyeliner and mascara since high school! I just put eyeliner (Espresso color) on my top lash line and then use a small brush to soften and smudge the line. And then I run that same brush (that now has some of the eyeliner makeup on it) along my lower lash line. Two coats of mascara in brown-black (not the waterproof kind), AND THAT’S IT. So, so easy. It lasts all day but comes off easily at night. I tried switching to fancy makeup at one point and I feel like the $45 eyeliner was melting off my face by 2pm, so I ran back to my CG with open arms. 🙂
Speaking of DMs on Instagram! I got approximately 34,276 messages this week that Shea McGee and I were wearing the same top on the same day on Stories. We both were cracking up at how many people were letting us know. 🙂 It IS a cute shirt though, right!?
I got a new bag too when I bought the top and I’m OBSESSED with the color of the leather! It is the perfect size and has the cutest double drawstrings on either side that make the bag super easy to access. I think it’s going to be a great bag for fall!
We have started buying stuff for staging the house and grabbed two of these gorgeous marble side tables that are on sale right now! The metal base is obviously amazing and the top is a really pretty marble! But I especially love the top is a generous size. You can easily fit a table lamp, small vase or planter and a stack of books. It’s an amazing deal for under $100!
And this it for us this week, friends! I hope you’re loving the Love Notes posts as much as we are. Any special requests for us?
