1.Happy May! The April showers are still here in NYC but on the bright side, it helped keep me focused during this busy work week instead of wanting to head to happy hour! I also got to finally try Lilia (make sure to read my NYC pasta guide if you haven’t!) and squeeze in some great workouts as well. Ready for those summer days though!
2. I have been feeling the start of a cold and/or allergies maybe starting to hit so I’ve been swapping my normal latte for the secret Starbucks Medicine Ball drink in the mornings. The drink is made up of hot water, steamed lemonade, a combo of Teavana’s Jade Citrus Mint Green Tea and Peach Tranquility Herbal Tea and honey and it’s a game changer if you feel a little under the weather!
3. While in Chicago last weekend I tried my friend’s tanning drops and I loved how they made my skin have an extra glow! I just ordered a bottle myself and it’s so easy (just a few drops to your moisturizer) for a quick tan without looking orange or streaks!
4. Links I loved this week? Grace‘s positive view on dating, Jess and Julia‘s amazing posts on the damaging environmental impact the fashion world has and how we can make a change (something I want to be better at!) and Brighton‘s post about cleaning out your tech (I need to add this to my to-do list ASAP!).
5. With Mother’s Day a week away, there’s a lot of great sales to shop for her this weekend! Net-A-Porter has their 25% off sale (my favorite initial stud is on sale!), Mango has 30% off all dresses and bags (love this pink dress, this striped midi, this embroidered floral midi dress and this wooden bag) and Sephora‘s big sale to stock up on some of my favorite beauty products like the best concealer and CC cream that I wear everyday, this game-changing mask that makes the best primer, the peel pads that I use every night and always keep my skin clear and my go-to eye gels that help with any puffiness (keep in the fridge so they’re extra cooling!).
