So much to love this week, despite some serious bags under my eyes over here. It's Friday though, it's the weekend, and my family is here! So let's get to it, shall we?
This is always something I'm loving but especially lately. Olivia's new favorite hour of the day is 5 AM. Combine that with my recent penchant for staying up late to watch Vampire Diaries (a true addiction) and you have one tired mama. Which is why I'm also loving numero dos.
2. L'Oreal Magic Lumi Highlighter/Brightener
Bags don't stand a chance against this and it doesn't go on cake or thick - perfection. I've used this before, tried other products, and always come back to this. L'Oreal is hands down my favorite drugstore beauty and hair brand due in no small part to this product. I get the lightest shade and go to town with my beauty blender (aren't those things amazing??). I've used this liberally this week and I may be tired, but with coffee and good concealer, I'm good to go.
3. Swiffer Sweep and Vac
I'm not joking, even a little bit. Dragging out the vacuum after each of Olivia's meals and snacks is not happening and I'm tired of walking around with little bits of dried waffle and banana on my foot. This is super easy to grab, suck up the crumbs and messies, and move on. Really, really loving this.
4. Panama Hat
I love hats and in the summer especially they save me from the first world problem of having to deal with bad hair days (courtesy of one of the most humid cities in the continental U.S.). I have some fedoras and floppies but this was just different enough from the fedora that I had to try it. I picked this one up from Old Navy last week and love, love, love it. I had my eye on one from J. Crew but this is just as cute and is ¼ of the price.
I know I already posted this photo this week. I cheated. Whoops.
5. Frequent Airport Trips
In a few days I'll be singing a different tune about the airport when I have to do drop offs but for now it's my favorite place. I love the excitement and anticipation of picking up a loved one and Olivia's really digging a new place to run crazy in. So are all the people whose knees she's bashing into. I've never liked child leashes but the desperate to contain my child part of me sees the practicality in them. Don't worry, I won't be getting one though.
The stink eye because I won't let her ride the escalators. If she could hashtag, she'd #worstmommyever
So now I'm off for a weekend with my family and the best gift ever - my mom took the baby monitor away from me. This means a couple days of sleeping past 5 (with the help of some Tylenol PM to combat my now internal alarm). Cheerss!
