-MAGNETIC FALSIES THAT I’M OBSESSED WITH-
-MAKING A NEW COKTAIL-
This week I have FINALLY been feeling more like myself! It only took some social media detoxing and a lot of Animal Crossing. I started working on a painting for one of my bestfriends (for her birthday in June)…its her puppy! I grew up painting and being, well, very into art making and it has been a good long while since I have gone back to my roots. It felt very cathartic and I was super impressed that I didn’t forget how to do it, HA!
On my weekly grocery trips to Trader Joe’s I always keep my eyes out for peonies. Peony season is my FAVORITE time of year and ever since it started I have been buying myself some to display in my living room. They honestly make me so happy every time I see them! They are my favorite flowers and it adds such a homey touch to a pretty boring space (which I’m working on jazzing up).
Speaking of jazzing things up, I have been working on updating my bedroom to become my oasis. I live in a small apartment and my room is really small. Ever since I moved in I have never loved my room. That is starting to change. I have been doing a little too much home decor shopping lately but TBH spending this much time at home deserves some new home decor. I recently bought frames for my prints that I got two months ago and put them up. I LOVE them! They create an escape that my mind desperately needs some days.
I have been starting to wear more makeup and actually put effort into getting ready. I recently found (through a friend) Moxielash! They are magnetic strip lashes and they are AH-mazing. I don’t mind my natural lashes but I hate wearing mascara. Last year for my friend’s wedding I ended up getting lash extensions. I had them from October until December. I really miss having extensions and these lashes are the closest thing to them! Plus they are sooo easy to apply and remove!
My boyfriend and I have been trying to eat out twice a week and support some of our local favorite spots. We recently went to get a nice steak dinner and I was inspired to create and equally nice cocktail for us to have with dinner. I decided to try making a Manhattan and I loved it! I am now so inspired to try making more old school drinks.
What has been inspiring you lately? I would love to know so please leave me a comment down below!
