Current Favorites: Beauty and Life Vol. 23

We made it to September! Bring on the apple cider, changing leaves and the return of my favorite TV shows.

I’m looking at you, Once Upon a Time and The Walking Dead (and Reign, because let’s face it, I love costumes too much to avoid that show. Glaring historical inaccuracies aside).

We’re hoping to get a new oven soon. I hope we do. I need to get back to baking.

Here is what I’ve been loving recently.

1) French Madeleines: I buy the decidedly less epicurean Entemann’s version, but madeleines taste great no matter who makes them.

2) The Nanny: Yesterday I marathon watched the last 14 episodes and finished it! The ending was bittersweet. And hilarious. I loved it. I’m so glad I watched the entire show from start to finish. I loved all the celebrity guest spots and cameos. Do you all remember Fran’s wedding dress? Gorgeous!

3) Bath and Body Works Japanese Cherry Blossom fragrance mist: My 90s nostalgia has taken full hold over me. I got curious about my favorite skin care brand from when I was a teen and placed an order. It was a “buy 3, get 3 free” deal. It hasn’t arrived yet, but I found out that my aunt owns a bottle of their JCB mist. I’ve been swiping some every morning for the past week.

4) Too Faced Chocolate Bon Bon Eyeshadow Palette: I can now understand the hype surrounding this one! The eyeshadows are buttery smooth and the palette smells amazing. I have been using this palette every day for the past two weeks.

5) My NMAI Amber Bead earrings: I’ve been wearing these to work a lot lately. One patient even complimented me on them. She said they were pretty. 🙂
