This Week I’m Loving:
iPhone Cases by Julia Kostreva
I’m on my 3rd case...I started with the Ombre Floral Pattern, then had the Tortoise Shell, and am now rocking the Indigo Ombre in Nude. With so many pretty pattens available, it’s hard not to pick more than one. Best of all, they’re durable but not clunky like some cases can be. I think the Pink Colorblock is next on my list...

How was your weekend? Mine was equal parts busy and relaxing. Friday, I spent the day with my best friend’s two girls, Olivia & Claire. I picked them up bright and early and took them on a little pre back to school adventure. We had breakfast at iHop, went to the Perot Museum, swung by Northpark to pick up a couple back to school gifts, had lunch at the Cheesecake Factory (their pick), played games at Dave & Busters then met my friend and her husband at Hawaiian Falls for Friday Night Slides. It was a jam-packed day, and oh-so-fun.
Saturday I worked on client projects, and had dinner at Amberjax. The shrimp and grits with mixed veggies was delicious. If you’re in the Dallas area, I highly recommend it.
Saturday night and Sunday morning, Dallas was covered in rain, which doesn’t usually happen in August. I spent the morning sipping coffee and watching movies for some much-needed down time.
Hope your week is off to a good start! Happy Monday!!
Shades of blues + florals? I can’t resist! It’s been a while since I’ve done a ‘Wear This Room’ post, but I think I picked some pretty inspiration to bring the column back, don’t you agree? I love the layered shades of blue and white patterns, and the touches of texture in the space. It translates to quite an outfit! Now tell me...would you wear this room?

I feel as though I’m constantly finding things I want to share with you guys, but don’t have a post to include them in. So...I’m starting a new series, Weekly Best, where I’ll share an item that’s on my ‘favorites’ list (every week!) The picks will range from a great beauty product (like today’s) to a cool, budget-friendly style or decor finds. Just a little “oh my goodness, you need to know about this” check-in from one gal to another.
Now, on to today’s ‘best'...Nars Dual-Intensity Eyeshadow. I first saw these while flipping though a magazine and made a point to check them out the next time I was at Sephora. Lysithea (a shark grey) and Europa (a gossamer pink peach) are in my current rotation, and just as the name says, they do double duty. They really do deliver the prettiest super-sheer wash of shimmery color, which intensifies dramatically when used with a wet brush (perfect as a liner.)
