Three Thrills By Thursday

Happy Thursday & Happy February! January felt like a very. long. month. Anyone else already planning their weekend? Sharing a few things from my week if you need a little pre-weekend pick-me-up.

one.

in havana, one of my fav trips!

People often ask me how I’m able to travel as much as I do (if I could do it for a living, I would!) but really, I just try to maximize vacation time & keep my eyes peeled for flight deals! I love these helpful hints on Cupcakes & Cashmere for those of us who work full time but still want to maximize our vacas! Another two tips I’d add if you travel often for work, first of all, bank ALL your airline miles. If you end up flying an airline you don’t currently have a mileage account for, sign up! Secondly, if you’re traveling for work, ask if it’s okay to extend your trip, or fly out early! It’s a great way to spend some time in a new city.

Okay, I posted this picture on Insta a few days ago but the biggest notable tidbit here are these lips. On a whim, I picked up a small tin of three shades of Nudestix in the Sephora checkout line (that always gets me.) I’m not kidding you when I say I LOVE the way it wears. Definitely looks like a matte but is very hydrating plus, I went the whole day (lunch & some snacks + tea) with only one minor touchup! I am loving the colors and if you don’t want to order directly from their site, you can find limited color at Ulta or Sephora. If you’re loving the red I’m wearing in this pic, it’s “royal.”

I’m currently working one of these books within this list but if you’re anything like me you love to read the book before it becomes a movie. Here are the books you’re going to want to read before their movies come out this year!

Cheers!!

Three Thrills by Thursday

  1. Summer Reading- remember getting assigned books over the summer in middle school? I was never too excited about being forced to read during my summer vacation but now I can’t wait. Funny how that works. My parents sent a surprise package a few weeks ago with some of New York Times Bestsellers and I can’t wait to dive into these reads.
  2. Summer Writing- I am SO excited to share my Cuba travel guide with you next week. As I started writing, I realized I had so many details I wanted to share with you so I’ve decided to break it up into a small series.
  3. Greetabl– my newest obsession and a sweet way to send a love note to your sig O, BFF or anyone who needs a little pick me up. When sending a card just isn’t enough, Greetabl includes a little treat ranging from new lipstick to chocolates to cozy socks. The best part? You can include your own photos as a personalized touch.

Hope you’re all ready to enjoy a nice long weekend! I’m headed south of the Mason Dixon for a little lake weekend.

Cheers,
