Friday Finds | Fall Wish List


My current wish list for fall aka what I have in my Nordstrom shopping cart. I know what you're thinking... "Lindsay, it's still summer! Why are you thinking about Fall already?!' Well my friends, because all the good fall clothes sell out FAST this time of year... trust me! I am so sad that these booties that I ordered during the Nordstrom Anniversary sale are now on back order until October :( So, I decided to cancel my order because I'm too impatient. Instead, I may opt for this pair. Also, these jeans suddenly were out of stock after I had ordered them during the sale? And now they are back in stock at full price... So, I might have to go with this pair instead. I love the brand so I'm hoping they work! 

In other news, I'm off to Put-In-Bay this weekend with some friends for a little girls' trip and I'm so excited! I can't remember the last time I went on a girls' trip! I'm actually bringing a book (or 2) to attempt to get some reading done by the pool. I can't remember the last time I had the down time to just read and relax. Also, sleeping in... like past 8:30am... that sounds heavenly!

I found the cutest little wine tumbler that says 'Mommy's Sippy Cup' from this etsy shop. I bought 4 of them to give to each of my mommy friends that are going on the trip! I'm so excited! Did I mention I'm excited? Of course, I will miss my hubby and the boys dearly... But, mama needs this!

Happy Fri - YAY!

3 New Beauty Products I'm Loving

I've been meaning to share some recent drug store beauty buys with you guys for a while now and I'm finally getting around to posting! I've been using this powder and this mascara for almost a month now and I love both products! I just recently picked up this essie gel couture set and I'm loving the long wear of this polish and top coat!

1. Maybelline Fit Me Matte Plus Poreless Powder (in Natural Beige) - I use this as a finishing/setting powder and I love it because it is so lightweight, but also gives me a matte finish which is perfect for the summer months. I use this setting brush for under my eyes and around my T zone and this powder brush for the rest of my face.

2. L'Oreal Voluminous Lash Paradise Mascara - I LOVE this mascara! I actually have been using it with out my normal lash primer and it still looks so great! The wand is so bushy and the formula is thick, which helps to lengthen and separate my lashes. I swear they almost look fake when I wear this mascara! I've heard it is even as good, if not better than the Two Faced 'Better than Sex' mascara. I've never tried that brand, so I can't compare the 2, but it's definitely a great product for the price!

3. essie gel couture nail polish and top coat kit (in color sizzling hot) - I got a gel manicure from a local spa before our trip to the Outer Banks last month and I forgot how nice gel manicures were! Although, it only lasted about a week, which usually they should last about 2. Well, I've been on the hunt for a good at home gel polish (without having to use lights) and this one has been the best I've tried so far! I actually only used one coat of the color and one coat of the top coat because I ran out of time (nap time hustle) and it lasted me about a week! Which is pretty long for an at home manicure in my opinion. I think I'll try 2 coats of each the next time I use it to see how long it lasts.

One of these days I do plan to post about my really easy, 10 minute summer make up routine... I literally have it down to a science and do it every morning before the boys wake up!
