The Weekend Post – From Virginia Beach


The semester is winding down, and after a few busy weeks it was really nice to take a mini road trip down to Virginia Beach. This weekend involved a delicious brunch at my favorite breakfast spot, ever – Doc Taylor’s. Their sweet potato pecan pancakes are hands-down the best pancakes of life. This was followed up with a walk along the oceanfront [something I miss living in DC], and getting groceries together for homemade dinner and drinks.

So what I’ve been loving this week . . .

I just loved Hello October’s spring makeup tutorial using drugstore products – such a classic look with a pop of color on the lips. If only we had Bourjois and Collection in the US!

If you’re looking for evening makeup inspiration – check out this tutorial on Monika Blunder’s channel, which features makeup artist Kira Nasrat. Holy gorgeous.

Charlotte Tilbury’s Matte Revolution lipsticks are finally available in the US! I have been reading reviews and looking at swatches of these beautiful lipsticks for months, and now I want to get my hands on all of them! The shades that look the most appealing to me are Amazing Grace, Lost Cherry, Sexy Sienna, and Very Victoria.

Lastly, I have to mention something I have been looking forward to for months . . . GOT!!!!! Who else is pumped for the season premiere tonight! I have been re-watching the fourth season this past week to prepare myself. Can’t wait to see what my girl Dany is going to bring to the show!

What have you guys been loving this week?
