On the things I’m loving…:

Is it weird that I kind of prefer masculine scented things in the shower? (That sounds dirtier than I intended it to on a Monday morning!) I was stoked to discover Etta+Billy, a local, artisanal bath and body products shop. Their spruce mint soap smells divine — super fresh and clean. Joe and I both have bars in our showers! (Yes, it’s true…we discovered the secret to married life a long time ago. It’s each having your own bathroom, even if it means using the guest one for it).

On Friday I instagrammed these shoes. They’re actually from ShoeMint, if you can believe it! I’m honestly pretty pleased with the quality and fit on these puppies. They seemed a little stiff straight out of the box, but after wearing them around town for the afternoon, felt great. I love me some ikat, so I couldn’t resist them.

I saw this post on The Daily Muse a while back and immediately ordered some GreenPans. We cook eggs so often, it was a worthwhile purchase!

Recently, I broke down and finally picked up some NARS Orgasm Blush after years of admiring the color and finish. I know, I know…definitely not a clean beauty product, but the shade is worth it.

As for the peplum top and skirt…just two pretty things I bookmarked recently. I really can’t wait for spring to arrive! Hope you all have a wonderful Monday. It’s the last week in February…whoa.

    I love that blush! I’ve been using it for about three years now and I recommend it to all of my friends. I’ve found that it’s the best shade for my skin tone, and I don’t regret ever making the leap.

    You can’t go wrong with Nars Orgasm or masculine shower products. Now that sounded dirty for a Monday morning! ;)

    Orgasm is worth it. Except when your dad picks it up and in horror yells “WHY IS THIS CALLED ORGASM!?”” “uh….i don’t know dad. i don’t work there”

    NARS makes some of the best blush! I have yet to try Orgasm but might need to on my next shopping trip :)

    I was always convinced that NARS’ Orgasm blush would never work for me until I sampled a bunch of NARS blushes at Sephora one day and discovered that yes, Orgasm is indeed the world’s most perfect shade. You’ll love it, I’m sure!

    I love everything on this list! The peplum top is so sweet and springy, I might need to add it to my “wish list” too.

    Totally agree with you re: Nars Orgasm blush. I’ve searched high and low and I still haven’t found anything like it yet! Also, the greenpan cookware sounds amazing…maybe it’ll be my next kitchen purchase!

    I am totally with you about men’s soap. I used my boyfriend’s Dove+Men Extra Fresh body soap and I haven’t looked back!

    Oooooh that soap sounds awesome! I like a little spicey, masculine scent sometimes instead of overly powerful girly scents.

    I heard that the NARS blush is awesome. I am going to have to look into getting soome of that cookware. I’ve been looking for a good pot set.
