one || perfect timing. i saw this print on pinterest yesterday and all i could think of is “yes.”
if this past season alone has taught me anything it’s to “trust the timing of your life.” things are meant to happen exactly when they do. so keep heart and practice patience and i promise you, everything will work out just fine.
two || better than coffee. lately, you might as well call me “bag lady” for these bags i’ve currently been carting around under my eyes. apparently my body told my face about my recent lack of zzz’s and it has been drooping ever since. enter bare minerals’ magical stroke of light eye brightener. M and i stopped into the store last saturday so i could pick up a few essentials and somehow in my mentioning of my saggy eyelid situation, my saleslady proposed the perfect remedy. she dabbed a healthy swipe of the eye brightener around my upper cheek bones and skin beneath my lower lashline. in a matter of moments, i looked as if i had logged an extra 24 hours of slumber. or in the very least a solid 20-minute nap. so if you, too are in need of a non-evasive eye lift, look no further.
three || on my wavelength. let me introduce madewell’s wavelength skirt in lipstick red. while M was shopping for a dress to wear for an upcoming wedding, i tried on this sassy mini. and then immediately fell in love. i couldn’t quite justify making it mine at the time, but now almost a week later, my non-buyer’s remorse has become too much to bear. it keeps calling to me (“shawna, shawna”) so for that reason, and for the fact that it would be beyond adorable paired with a plaid button-down, a statement necklace, and a pair of booties this fall, i plan on making it mine ASAP. as in, i’m going to the store tomorrow.
four || speaking of fall, guess what’s back, back again? football’s back. tell a friend. okay, so it’s technically only pre-season, but still, S and i watched the hall of fame game between the giants and the bills last sunday and then, of course, the chargers-cowboys game last night and even though the giants’ and chargers’ victories don’t count in season standards, i don’t even care, i’m just so happy professional pigskin is gracing our television sets again. clear eyes, full hearts, people.
five || let them eat (pan)cake. ever since i sunk my teeth into that delectable pancake last weekend at plow, i cannot stop thinking about the buttery breakfast food. luckily, i shouldn’t have too long before i get my pancake fix again as S has promised to find a similar almond flour pancake recipe to replicate for me soon. clearly he knows the way to a woman’s heart is through breakfast food. well that, and shoes.
six || i’m not gonna write you a love song. but sara bareilles might. tomorrow i’m headed to the san diego leg of sara’s “little black dress” tour at sdsu’s open air theater with (new friend) B. i have yet to see sara perform live but from everything i’ve heard, she’s just as amazing in person as she is on her records. we’ll soon find out, won’t we?
have a great weekender, y’all.3
