1. Big, geometric earrings. Simple, delicate studs are perfect for every day (and go with everything), but there's something really fun about bold, brilliant, swingy earrings—think of them as an easy way to brighten up your face when you're feeling tired. 😴 I'm wearing these above like they're my new uniform. 😋 Love these, too: millennial pink tassels, balls and hoops, you're a star, eye see you, shape(s) of you, hand-me-down.
2. All the beautiful prints by blogger, illustrator, and all-around cool French girl Garance Doré on her (recently revamped) site, Atelier Doré, especially this one.
3. These thin, crispy, perfect chocolate chip cookies. If you like Tate's cookies, you'll love these.
4. Indie rock group The Maine's new album (their sixth one since they formed in 2007) is like ear candy—but not in a too-sweet way. I could listen to it every day, all day. (I have a thing for fast-paced songs with a nostalgic vibe; they give me all the feels in the best way.) You can listen to "Bad Behavior" (and see lead singer John O'Callaghan's awesome floral suits) here.
Kristin, 29, is an executive assistant at a creative consultancy in NYC. She keeps track of schedules and traveling for senior partners and helps with event planning. Oh, and after walking in the Women's March she was inspired to do something else to give back, so she hosted a fundraiser for Planned Parenthood this past March. To say she's a boss planner (in all areas of her life) is an understatement! Here she shares the beauty product she's loving right now.
"I came across the MakeUp Eraser cloth while I was shopping for a new foundation brush on Amazon, and it popped up as a 'thing you may also like'—gets me every time! I found a Buzzfeed article where the writers test it out; all of them start with a full face of makeup and they were stunned at how well the product worked. I bought it and when it was delivered I tried the cloth right away with a full face of makeup on: foundation, concealer, bronzer, blush, eyebrow pencil, and mascara. There are two sides to it; one is for erasing and the other is for exfoliating. I wet the eraser side and rubbed in a circular motion all over my face. I could already see the makeup being washed away. Then I used the exfoliating side and abracadabra! All the makeup was erased from my face, like magic. I love that I don't have to spend money on makeup-remover wipes anymore. To boot, they dry easily and are super easy to pack. Win, win, win! Money well spent."
P.S. I'm obsessed with this Bikini Series right now. It's the most fun I've had exercising in a long time. So if I've been MIA on the social medias, it's 'cause I'm getting my fitness on. 💪🏼 I've also been a little slow to get posts up the past two weeks, so thank you so much for bearing with me! I have some fun stories coming very soon, can't wait to share them with you! 🤗 Xoxo, Heather
