This & That Fridays – August 18


My hair has lightened up a bit since my balayage disaster thank goodness.  I’m still not loving it but I decided to stick with it and find a new hairdresser in the Fall.

I’m a huge fan of Starbucks’ Passion Tea Lemonade, particularly in the Summer.  They’ve recently expanded their iced tea line and I tried a Pineapple Black Tea Lemonade a few weeks ago and it’s delicious – I might even like it more than the PTL!  Next on my list to try is the Iced Pina Cola Tea Infusion!


Totally loving my new @eccololtd planner ? – it even has stickers! ?

I’ve been absolutely loving my new Eccolo planner! Not only is it beautiful, functional AND contain stickers, I got it at HomeSense for $14.99!  #winning

This isn’t really recent but about a month ago I picked up the Stila Perfect Me, Perfect Eye & Cheek Palette in Fair/Light from Winners for $23.  It was such a great deal, I couldn’t resisit it!  I’ve been using it and a review of it is on it’s way.


Maggie absolutely needs a custom Adidas leisure suit

How COOL are these wine glasses?

Is it weird to covet a new web hosting provider?  I received my renewal a few days ago and they want to charge me over 50% more than what I paid last year.  Granted I had a discount as a first-time customer but still – shouldn’t there be a discount for current customers too?  If you have any recommendations for me, I’d love to hear them down below!

I really want to try this new BareMinerals foundation!

I love a good comfy jegging – these look like they’d be great for Fall!


I love it when I actually learn something from watching a YouTube video – unfortunately that seems to be happening less and less 😉  This is a really good one – in particular her explanation of the different types of “setting” sprays out there and what they actually do.  Give it a watch!

    Yay, I’m glad your hair is looking better! Good luck finding a new stylist. They are hard to come by ?

    Umm, all of the Starbucks teas you mentioned sound absolutely delicious. Move over PSL, I need to try these.

    Lol I saw those dog Adidas tracksuit and they are ADORBS. Maggie 100% needs one!

    Wow, thank you for linking to that video! Super insightful. Like you said, we don’t learn much in the beauty community these days.
