thoughts for friday

>> C graduated! We had such a great weekend with family celebrating this impressive accomplishment. I'm incredibly proud of him for achieving this goal and for pursuing his dream no matter what. It's hard to believe we only have about five weeks left in New Haven (only 2 for C!). We're trying to soak up as much quality time with our friends as we can. I'm actually surprised by how bittersweet this move feels - we've made some really dear friends over the past two years and I know we'll be sad to be moving to far away from each other. 

>> I discovered No More Dirty Looks several months ago and have loved catching up on posts, diving into all things natural beauty. I'm overjoyed to be featured on their site as part of their "Morning Routine" series. 

>> Really obsessing over these new lipsticks from Clinique. The colors are perfection and the formula is SO creamy and hydrating, yes actually hydrating. The color lasts so long even when I was drinking coffee (not through a straw). Run and pick up a few colors (I have Sweet Pop and Melon Pop). I also randomly picked up the original Bare Minerals foundation on a total whim and I'm really liking it!

>> I finished reading The Life Changing Magic of Tidying Up and was so inspired that I immediately refolded all my clothes following this method. I'm thrilled to say that they still look the same even after a whole month! My clothes are happier and so am I.

>> Still on a podcast kick especially for walking/running because they hold my attention much better than music. I've also been really enjoying them in the car as I've been doing a lot of driving lately.My favorites lately include the One Part Podcast, The Wellness Wonderland, and Elise Gets Crafty.

>> I've finally collected a massive amount of "empties" (products I've used up) which is seriously satisfying. Knowing I'm collecting them has also helped give me the motivation to finish up a lot of stuff. That post is coming very soon, I promise!
