links + small things

It’s been a long, cloudy, RAINY week and I’m ready to see the sun again. Cheers to Friday! My sister is coming over tonight and we’re going to make the Cajun Garlic Butter Shrimp with Pesto Pasta recipe from Half Baked Harvest!

Sheila shared a reel of my full eyebrow microblading experience! She’s truly an artist!

I’m starting the book Signal Fires by Dani Shapiro soon. Have you read it?

I tried this NYX serum concealer the other day and was truly impressed by it. It’s really nice for a flexible, medium coverage that isn’t too heavy. It’s not nearly as full coverage as Shape Tape, for example, but provides more coverage than Nars Radiant Creamy Concealer. I got shade beige and that is a great fit for me.

Our only vacuum is the Dyson cordless, which I absolutely love, but I found myself wanting a smaller hand vac for tiny messes in the playroom and dust/hair on the bathroom floor. This little hand vac is perfect! It has two speeds and charges up so you can store it anywhere while it’s charged.

I also upgraded our shower squeegee to this one!

These are very cute sunglasses.

Love a breezy shirt dress.

A pretty blue sweatshirt for $40.
