Next week Jacinda and I are meeting up in Chicago (along with our friend Rebecca from Cooking With My Kid) to check out the latest and greatest in cake decorating with Wilton. We’re such giant nerds for cake decorating, we can’t wait! While we are there I have an appointment with Sonya from Parlor for a fab hair makeover. I’m going all out – color, cut, can’t wait! What do you think? Should I cut the bangs? Go ombre or highlights? Also plan to check out Longman & Eagle, yum.
I think I mentioned that I had the privilege of getting a little makeover and detailed lesson in beautification from Lori, head artist for Smashbox cosmetics. Oh geez, it was so awesome I don’t know where to start. I will have to do a post sharing a few tricks, but my fave is definitely this white pencil. I’ll tell you all about the magic it can do soon.
I’ve been working diligently on the patio redesign and I can’t wait to show you, but I still have some fabric dyeing to do and a few pieces of furniture I’m waiting for. Here’s my two favorite purchases so far (made with Membership Rewards points). This lamp from West Elm: Woven Seagrass Pendant. Also adore this Woven Wire Tote from Urban (on sale) which I put all my gardening tools in.
When we were in Folsom last week, a family friend gave Scarlet a travel aquadoodle. This is the finest travel toy money can buy! She’s obsessed and she played quietly on the plane the whole way home! It was so effective I had to mention it to you.
