I am so positively ready for this weekend, friends…it’s been one of those weeks. And my mom’s coming to town tomorrow, so I’m especially looking forward to one of those fun weekends of shopping, eating out, and being just a little bit spoiled that we all look forward to when our parents come to town. So, forgive me if this week’s list is a bit more succinct…I still have to clean the guest room.
Since we had such a serious beauty splurge this week, I thought I’d make it up to you with a steal. These new spring treats from Sonia Kashuk for Target are just as sweet as can be. I particularly love the Gold Mine brush set ($25) – the wooden handles give the brushes a luxe feel, and the holder could easily double as a minaudiere for outdoor summer parties. And the Spring Awakenings makeup palette ($20) is packed with useful colors, and so complete, it could be the only thing you pack in your overnight bag. Plus, it has that same adorable woven wicker on the outside.
I literally just received an email from Le Train Bleu, a favorite shop of mine, letting me know about a new arrival, and it’s too good not to share. Every single thing I buy there garners oodles of compliments (in fact, my mom once stole a Le Train Bleu cardigan right off my back!), and I never see it being worn by someone else. These enamel lockets are brand new in the shop, and I’m completely smitten. If only I could figure out how to choose between coral and cobalt.
To say that I don’t need more plates in my life would be an understatement…in fact, I think I’d have to start storing them in the fireplace (hey, that’s an idea…). But the new spring dishware at West Elm is so beautiful, I’m having a very hard time resisting. They’re also on sale. Quel torture!
That’s it, friends. Have a wonderful weekend, whatever you’re doing. I hope there’s sun in your Sunday this week…my mom will never forgive me if Portland doesn’t see a bit of spring sunshine while she’s in town!
