April/May Loves

Pretty summer things | Love, Lenore

I've been slacking in this department a bit, but I'm excited to be back at it. I love collecting my favorite things for you guys!

Spring/Summer Beauty Finds
Supergoop! Unseen Sunscreen (SPF 40). I’ve recommended this to so many girls already, because it’s truly fantastic. It’s clear. It’s non-greasy. And it works! I wore it every day of our California trip under my makeup, and even though we were outside a lot (including a long hike and a full day at the zoo) I never got remotely burnt on my face. Remember, daily SPF is the easiest and best way to prevent aging (and skin cancer)!

OGX Dry Shampoo. I picked this up at Walgreens after my friend Bri tried the brand, and I’m loving it! It smells amazing, and makes my second and third day roots look great (without giving them a nasty texture). I actually re-purchased this week so I won’t run out!

Not Your Mother’s 10-in-1 Hair Perfector. My sister told me about this, and it’s a great multi-tasking leave-in spray that doesn’t break the bank. I spray then comb through damp hair and my hair has felt super healthy lately. I love Not Your Mother’s products!

Fashion Additions
White mules by Dolce Vita. I was sold when I saw the wrapped heel. So chic! And they’re really comfortable!

Printed scarves. I can't get enough of the hair scarf look! I also love to tie little scarves on my bags. I ordered this hair scarf and love this super chic scarf as well.

Quay Australia Lulu sunglasses. Not only do they share a name with my fur daughter, but they're absolutely adorable and flattering, and the quality is great. They're also on sale!

Healthy Snacks
Veggies dipped in guacamole. As some of you know, I've been eating Keto lately, which means my hummus addiction had to go. However, in an effort to eat more avocado, I started making small batches of guacamole to dip my veggies in, and it's a surprisingly good combo! My favorite to dip is bell pepper slices, although cucumber, cherry tomatoes and carrot chips works great as well.

String cheese. I didn't eat dairy for a few months, so when I decided to try an entirely new eating plan (trying to figure out what works for my skin!), I added cheese back in. I can't tell you how happy this has made me! String cheese has become my favorite snack, and I've had at least one a day lately.

"'Ma chérie, Il faut se faire la vie belle,' is the soundtrack of my every day. It means, 'My darling, you have to create a beautiful life (no one will do it for you).' Ever since I was a little girl, my grandmother always repeated this line to me. She’d recite this quote as she was watering her flowers, pondering life, decorating her house, baking a cake, setting a table, wrapping a present or recognizing beauty in the world. Her quote has taught me to take matters into my own hands. How can I make a situation more beautiful? Meaningful? Harmonious? How can I turn negativity into positivity? Indeed, so much of my life has flourished because of this way of thinking. It’s incredible how much our thoughts dictate the way we see and react to the world around us. 'Ma chérie, il faut se faire la vie belle!'" - excerpt from this home tour with Alex Noiret.
