Stuff I Like: Wearing, Listening, Eating.

Hi! I have recently liked some stuff so here you go;

This RMS Palette That Didn't Disappoint Me.
So, listen. I ordered this palette even though the reviews weren't glowing and one of y'all was like, "it will disappoint you." I FULLY expected to return it. It arrived and, indeed, it was pretty small and lacks a mirror which is almost unforgivable but I decided to give it a try and you know what? I fucking love it. I have used it every day! The Magic Luminizer is a bit warmer and creamier than the Living Luminizer so it's great for summer. Both the Lip2Cheek colors make great blush and the Buriti Bronzer is pretty nice as an eye color. (I haven't tried it as a cheek color yet.) The plain lip balm is the only thing I don't love. It's fine, just not special. Anyway, I am happy I bought it and it's been a nice way to try out some of the other RMS products.

This Podcast Episode About Kate and Andy Spade.
I listened to this episode of How I Built This last fall when it came out and it made me really like Kate Spade and her husband. It's such an interesting interview! I'm glad they reposted though in retrospect its really sad, too. You just never do know what people are going through.

This Summer Recipe That Is Delicious and Cheap.
I made this Lemony Cucumber Couscous recipe pretty much as written and it was great! Super easy  delicious, and inexpensive. I had it over some salad greens with Trader Joes jalapeƱo chicken sausage and have been eating the leftovers for lunch. It's pretty simple, so I think I'm going to add chickpeas next time (and maybe some fresh dill or basil.) So versatile! I love pearl couscous and this recipe is going to be my summer go-to.

This Body Oil That Smells Like Summer.
Kate bought me this Nuxe oil when she went to Paris a while back and it's really quite wonderful though the the "fancy suntan lotion" scent is one of those love it or hate it things. (I love it.) It's a bit strong by itself but I recently discovered that if I mix a little bit with my unscented Aveeno lotion it sheers it out just the right amount. And my skin glows! I am basically a French lady now.

  1. That couscous recipe looks amazing! I'm going to give it a shot. Also, love the Nuxe oil. I've only ever received various samples of it from Sephora, Birchbox, etc...but it's lovely. I've always meant to put it on my Christmas/birthday wishlist.
