I was glad to hear from a few of you that you really enjoy these type of roundup posts, so I thought I’d bring back an oldie but goodie: Little Luxuries! The volume of summer sales happening right now is unreal, but even beyond that, I scouted out a bunch of fun finds that all clock in under $100. Ready?
Is it just me or are there so many dresses out there right now that are TOTAL steals? I recently got this one from Shopbop (which was already a great price at $62, and is now on sale further, though with limited sizing). I was really pleased with the fit and quality — thinking I’ll wear it to a wedding later this summer.
I’ve been on a bit of a mission to find “dupes” of my fave beauty products. For example, I absolutely LOVED Susanne Kaufmann’s Hyaluron Serum, but having just ran out of it, I wondered if I could find a similar product that wasn’t quite so expensive. I am trying out this brand I found on Amazon (that’s literally 8 times LESS expensive) to see if the results are the same. Similarly, I mixed up a batch of homemade toner this weekend, using witch hazel, rosewater, and some other fun botanicals (and metallics, actually! Colloidal silver FTW). I’m going to give it a try for a couple weeks and see how I like it. If it’s good, I’ll share the “recipe” with you, and why I picked each ingredient. It’s kinda fun DIYing some of these beauty products at home!
Oh! One thing I should mention. When I was putting this post together, I had spotted these cool chain link gold bookends. But as I hunted around, I actually found them at one of my favorite home decor shops, High Street Market, for even less at $78! Poking around on decor sites has taken on new significance lately. — I’ve been working on a big home decor project with my mom. She is redecorating most of her house, and asked for my help to select an interior designer, get the project going, help her gather inspiration, all that stuff. Neither of us have ever worked with a designer in this capacity before, and it’s been really fun to see similarities in my own business processes, and frankly, how little I know about managing an interior design budget (ha!). Have you ever worked with an interior designer on a big project? Any tips for us?
Hope you enjoyed the long weekend (if you took Monday off!). I have no idea what day it is, but my calendar says it’s Thursday, so I’ll take it.
