Things That Thrill Me

Nadia won me over when she posted a tutorial on how she achieves her flawless winged liner – I have high hopes that even I who has a love/hate relationship with liquid liner can master this technique.

These are the cutest free wallpapers for your iPhone or desktop computer – I currently have the Audrey Hepburn with the blue bow one on my phone!

We all know I love myself a good top knot, and this tutorial is no exception.

“Uptown Funk” has to be one of my favorite songs to work out to, so this one-song warmup routine is great to get moving at the gym or at home.

I think that we all can agree that Blake Lively has some of the best hair, beauty and style sense in the Hollywood. Her makeup at Cannes last year was perfect, and now I know how to achieve it (psst – it won’t break your wallet, either!).

Who doesn’t love a chocolate molten cake? Well, now it’s easier than ever to bake – just use a cupcake pan.

Lauren Conrad’s feature
in this month’s Redbook Magazine was a fun read into her professional
and personal life. But, more than that, I am simply obsessed with her
cover look – I hope to recreate something similar with my own wardrobe

Nothing tastes better than a fresh scone for breakfast, so I’m excited to try out this glazed cinnamon recipe at home.

This article is a great read if you’re looking for ways to up your home’s curb appeal – I can’t wait to get my hands in the dirt and give a few of these a try!

    I’m still perfecting the top not – definitely reading that tutorial! I’ve got to scoop up a copy of Redbook this month – I’ve been slacking on that one lately and I love Lauren’s style. And her life haha.

    Reading this is making my hungry – chocolate and scones, yum! I'm going to have to check out those wallpapers, I'm in need of a new one on my phone!

    I've gotta check out that liner tutorial – lately I can't even get one eye right! Eek! And girl, I ADORE Lauren Conrad… Sigh…

    All kinds of good ideas here today! I'm getting anxious to get my hands in the dirt, too!

    I'm with you! Such a happy and pretty reminder every day. 🙂

  6. 4.16.15

    Yes! Then we can continue this twin trend thing that we've developed.

    I just got back from Target and couldn't find that darn blush anywhere – maybe I'll check Walgreens next since they seem to have a bigger selection of makeup these days. Thanks for your fantastic winged liner tutorial!

  8. 4.16.15

    You're so right! It has been a nice little reminder every time I check my phone. 🙂

    I'm glad that you enjoy these posts! Blake is just superhuman, I'm convinced. I wish I could a special hair treatment that would guarantee that I could have her hair.

  10. 4.16.15

    Right?! When I pull these posts together, I typically have to go have a snack after because I'm so damn hungry.

    I'm pretty sure we all love LC's style and life in general, lol. I have been looking for copycat pieces from her cover look so I can recreate it!

  12. 4.16.15

    They are the cutest wallpapers!

  13. 4.16.15

    Nadia is SO good at the winged liner look, I had to share it with everybody! I'm reconsidering cutting my hair shorter next week solely because I'm not sure what I'd do then if I couldn't put it in a top knot!

  14. 4.16.15

    Hopefully Nadia's tutorial will help you out!

  15. 4.16.15

    I can think of no better song to get you pumped up for the day!

  16. 4.16.15

    Right?! Those scones look divine. I feel like mastering the top-knot always is a work in progress!

  17. 4.16.15

    No joke – Ryan and I had leftover ice cream cake for breakfast on his birthday. It was the best decision that I've made all week. 🙂

    I used those graphics for my desktops wallpaper! It makes me so happy to start up my computer and see such a pretty quote!

    Oh I love this post idea, how fun! Any list type post has heart eye emojis written all over it for me. And Blake. I think we can all agree that she's just the most flawless individual in just about every aspect of life, right? Except for that whole James thing…

    Chocolate molten cake and glazed cinnamon rolls? I'm officially drooling! And I'm still working on perfecting the top knot look – off to check that out now!

  24. 4.16.15

    I loved that link from Nadia! You find such a great roundup every week girl. I have been all about the topknots lately especially for work!

  25. 4.16.15

    I've tried forever to get the winged liner down, I'm going to try again now. I also really really want to eat this chocolate molten cake.

    Oooh I love the one song warm up routine! (Uptown funk–love that one too–it plays almost every morning of my work commute so I have a nice little song to jam out to each day 🙂
