Current Loves

1//2//3//4//5//6//7

Did you brave the crowds on Black Friday? I decided to stay in my PJ's and shop online. Did you know lots of stores had online sales Friday? I was fully prepared to wait for Cyber Monday, but once I stumbled onto a few sites and discovered the sales, I was hooked. Here's some of my current loves that I've recently discovered and ordered online (minus the Nivea Lip Butter- I discovered this while out and about shopping last week before Thanksgiving...smells and feels AMAZING!!)

I'm a sucker for all the makeup gift sets they put out during Christmas time. These sets are definitely on my wish list!

Nighttime Routine

1/2/3/4/5/6/7/8/9

{1}
This body butter smells amazing. It leaves my skin feeling so soft and smooth.
{2}
I have oily skin so I only moisturize my face every other night. This facial cream is light, but super moisturizing. The glass jar is so pretty. I love sitting it on my nightstand and using it at bedtime each night.
{3}
I have used this hand cream since high school and love it! It contains paraffin, which works really well on my skin and leaves my hands feeling silky smooth.
{4}
I bought this coco butter stick a while back at the drugstore, thinking it would be good for something. I didn't use it for awhile until I read on Caitlin's blog that she uses it as a lip moisturizer. Genius! It's now become a staple product in my nighttime routine.
{5}
This product is named accurately. It is genius. This is one of the best foot lotions I have ever used. I can still feel it when I wake up, so I know it's done its job during the night.
{6}
When I don't use B&BW's mango body butter, I used wonderful smelling body butter from Soap and Glory. Best smell ever!
{7}
This is a new hand cream I've recently discovered by accident. Around Christmas they always have those manicure/ pedicure gift sets. I'm a sucker for these things and TJ MAXX has tons. This particular set came with some adorable house slippers, which was the only reason why I bought it but this hand cream was a nice bonus. Like the foot cream, I can still feel it when I wake up in the mornings.
{8}
This was a BirchBox discovery and when I first received it, I thought, "Umm, what??" As weird as the name is, the product is wonderful as a lip moisturizer! I'm almost out of the sample size and need to repurchase, which is always a clue that you really love a certain product. :)
{9}
Last, but certainly not least is my favorite eye cream. This little product helps reduce fine lines and wrinkles helps with bags under the eyes, which I tend to have after a long, hard day of teaching.

Weekend Update

I splurged on my cheat day and enjoyed this delicious croissant and hot chocolate from Starbucks. It was worth every calorie.  

My midi ring from Blair Edie's collection at BaubleBar arrived. I paired it with this ring from Gigglosophy  



My boots arrived! My feet are oh so comfy. I'm in LOVE! 

I discovered my new favorite candle. This smells AMAZING!

This J Crew factory sweater was on back order and didn't ship until mid October. I love it and now want the grey and black one. 

I found these fuzzy socks at BBW. I've been moisturizing my feet every night and sleeping with socks on so these make my night time ritual a little more fun :)

I'm in LOVE with these! Another fantastic TJ MAXX find.

By complete accident, I discovered that you can hook your sunglasses to the side of your Louis Vuitton Neverfull. I always thought it was for keys but it works. I'm probably the only one who is just now discovering this :)

DIY Polka Dot Jewelry Dish

I have recently discovered Caitlin's blog, Southern Curls and Pearls, and I am obsessed, y'all! She has the most darling taste and is just gorgeous. While scrolling through old posts, I discovered a DIY project from a site called Shop Sweet Things. You can check out the project here. I thought this was a super cute and easy project so I headed to Target to buy supplies. I hit a snag when I couldn't find the small black dots so I decided to use what I already had, which was black paint from my pumpkin painting craft. The end result didn't turn out quite as cute as the original, but it'll work! :)

Pencil Love











While recently reading through my favorite blogs, I learned about the most darling etsy shop called Amanda Catherine Designs. She has gorgeous prints that I can't wait to get my hands on, but what caught my eye were the pencil sets. After scrolling through the entire shop, I decided on the Gentle Reminders Set and the Paris Set. These charming pencils are sure to make lesson planning a little more fun :)

Painting Pumpkins

I spent my Sunday painting pumpkins. I have seen such cute pumpkin painting ideas here lately, so I thought I'd give it a go. It was such fun! I had to quit because I ran out of pumpkins so I may just have to pick some more up and have another painting party next week. :)

I saw this neat idea in the October issue of HGTV magazine (I have recently discovered this magazine and WOW! Love it!!). It was super easy to recreate and adds a nice little detail to my black and white pumpkin. 






Isn't this sign adorable? My crafty Mom made this :) 


Of course Reese had to be involved every step of the way :)


Reese loves this cat, but it sometimes annoys her, which is what's happening here.

And here.




Isn't fall fun? :)
