Winged Eyeliner

eyeliner ideas
Every time I see my friend Jenny (above), her eyeliner game is on point. Her eyes always look so dramatic and pretty. Feeling inspired (and because I've had the same makeup routine for the past few years), I'm starting Operation Look Like Jenny. Basically it involves me wearing winged eyeliner every day this week. I figure if I don't make myself practice consistently then I'll always feel too nervous to ever do it. So, I'm excited to report back next week and share any tips I learned along the way. And for some extra inspiration this week, here are a few more pictures of nailed-it eyeliner...

My Breakfast Ritual + A Giveaway!

healthy breakfast
I'm not much of a morning person, but I am a big believer in breakfast. I'll usually eat a bowl of oatmeal or cereal with chia seeds mixed in and make a whole-milk latte. I love the simplicity of my weekday routine, but I thought it was about time to switch things up a bit. I'm a sucker for whimsical kitchen items and found so many at Uncommon Goods, a shop that features unique designs and handcrafted gifts and whose mission is to support and provide a platform for artists and designers. Here are a few of my favorite finds...

First, I traded in my regular bowl for this one with feet. They would be so cute for dinner parties!

Then, I swapped my coffee cup for this pretty scalloped one. As you finish your drink, a hidden animal is revealed inside.

Finally, since we don't have a dishwasher, I have to do whatever I can to motivate myself to wash up after eating. I replaced our old dish soap container with this recycled apothecary bottle. It looks so pretty sitting next to our sink! Even Alan approves.
