Happy Monday, lovelies! Hope you all had a wonderful weekend. Mine was great. We went to our friends wedding outside of Philadelphia and had such a great time. Wish I had another day off, of course. But that's nothing out of the ordinary.

I thought I'd motivate myself this morning by sharing with you a few things that are making me very happy these days. My current loves & lusts.

I'm totally head over heels over this fabulous palette. Now a lot of you know that I work in the beauty industry and that means that I'm usually fairly jaded when it comes to cosmetic products. I mean I love cosmetics and all but I have sooo much of it and I get to see anything new and innovative before things hit the shelves so by the time a product launches I'm usually fairly over it. Now this isn't really innovative or anything but this palette really got me excited! The shades are incredible and the shadows really last. I've spent hours and hours playing with it and creating new eye looks and I'm finally starting to have some fun with makeup again. Thank you UD for my beauty awakening!


I'm determined to make this mine. Also while I'm at it I might get the Two Lovers Custom Initials Necklace. Oui, oui for me!

My 25th anniversary gift from J! See why we've been together so long? :)

Lust
A big fat cappucino

It is a Monday after all!

What are you loving & lusting these days?

Have a wonderful start to the week, sweets! xoxo

Beautiful images. I would love some glamourous vintage dresses and a night out, a party!! Not so many of those these days with my little ones. I'd even settle for a trip to Paris and a stroll around some galleries or chateaus!! lol. I can dream. Have a great Monday petal! xo

Collette Osuna said...

Hello Love....hope you are well:) I love the bag and eyeshadow....happy to see you....have a great week:)

Vanessa@Luxuria said...

Wow! that bag is gorgeous (J' is well-trained!)
Well, all my winter lusts just happen to be over on my blog where I recently listed my "winter wish-list" (I hope Santa's reading it) xx

Diana Mieczan said...

WOW...25 years together - that is so sweet and I love big fat cappucinos as well:) Muah

Debby said...

I am a wee bit obsessed w/ the naked eye palette... the colors are awesome and I agree... they do stay on well. xo

Lindsey Regan Thorne @ be pretty said...

I love what's making you happy these days! I have yet to purchase the Naked Eye Palette but you just sparked me! It's a gorgeous array of colors! Wow! Loving the Chloe bag as well... gorge and the necklace! Happy Monday... enjoy your big fat cap! :)

Happy Monday!

I'm totally lusting over another Chanel handbag to add to my collection! Just checked out the Lust store, can't wait til she's up and running again. Thanks for sharing Dawn <3

marlo @ marlodoeshair said...

I've been lusting after the Naked palette recently too. I'm an industry professional so like you I get tired of "new" products before they're launched, but not this palette! I don't think Urban Decay could've perfected Naked more.

Jacki said...

Ohhhh you just HAD to mention the Naked Palette, didn't you? ;) I have been lusting after that in a bad way for a long time. And it's finally available again at my local Sephora and Ulta. So I guess maybe it's time ... or maybe it will go on my Christmas list :)

Other than that, I'm loving fall weather and bringing out my sweaters and scarves. Right now, shopping for new things isn't really in my budget (hence my hesitation on the palette!), so I'm just kind of trying to have fun with what's already there. So far, so good! :)But I do want a new pair of jeans, and some new cozy long sleeved tees.

With love... said...

Good morning and a happy monday to you as well. I am absolutely loving the weekend I had. And lust for some much needed writing inspiration (thesis writing).

Have a beautiful laughter filled week.
