Wednesday Want: Florence Cable Pullover

ww-florence-cable-pullover

Love love love the arm detailing on the sweater and the shorter length!! Not only does it look great for a shorter statured woman such as myself but I also love the punch of color.

Honestly, I see this being the perfect sweater for a chill night with friends while up in the NW.

Name For You

 

I’m currently planning a trip back up to my second home–the Northwest–and “Name For You” is by far one of the highlights on the travel playlist that I am making for my trip.

I’ve always had a special place in my heart for The Shins, as they were my first ever concert. Their music is simply feel-good music, and I have truly never been in a bad mood while listening to them. This song echoes that feeling and is also just such a great song to have on while driving.

Needless to say, I honestly cannot wait to see what else they have in store for us and the March release of their new album “HEARTWORMS”.

Lovin’ Right Now: Sweater Details

 

Sweaters like these, with the coolest details, make me wish that mild temperatures were more common where I live.

Honestly, one week it’s in the 30s and the next it’s in the high 70s. If there ever were a state to be known for it’s ridiculous weather, it’d have to be Texas.

Lemon Rosemary Salmon

Earlier this week I tried a recipe for some pork loin chops that I’ve had in the fridge for a couple of days that involved rosemary and was enthralled by the flavor it had. Now, I want anything and everything with rosemary. Truly.

And seeing as how I do have leftover rosemary, I am thinking that those rosemary butter cookies may just have to be baked this weekend so I can use my leftovers. Purely just so I can use those leftovers, of course. 😉

Happy Friday y’all!

City of Stars

I won’t lie to you–this song has been on repeat for a good while now. It is just such a beautiful, yet simple, piece of music that tends to have an old world feel to it, and I can’t get enough of it.

Though I’ve yet (keyword yet) to see La La Land, I can understand why this song and the movie itself have been nominated (and now received) so many awards.

Lovin’ Right Now: Smashbox Cover Shot Eye Palettes

lrn-smashbox-cover-shot-palette

 

Fate came in for me recently as right around the moment my favorite it! Cosmetics trio of eyeshadows started to become non-existent, Smashbox came out with their new Cover Shot eye palettes.

I LOVE the soft light and matte palettes. They’re perfect for my more minimalistic makeup approach and can easily be intensified with some fitting eyeliner. I also just prefer a softer eye during this time of year, as Houston weather never knows what it wants to do and ends up just driving my sinuses mad. And no one likes a smoky eye look ruined by watery eyes.

Happy Friday!

A 1000 Times

 

Towards the end of 2016, I was introduced into a lot of good music.

One song that I’ve really been digging is “A 1000 Times” by Hamilton Leithauser + Rostam. It has honestly become one of my go-to driving songs for when I’m out and about or just coming home from work.

With the new year, I am definitely looking forward to discovering more good music.

What are y’all loving right now?
