Hey, it's ok to love these things…!

OK so here is what I'm loving this week:

I love this perfume! I was looking for a new scent for a while this past spring and once I tried this one at Sephora, I knew it had to be mine! It's such a feminine and delicate floral perfume with minimal fruity notes so it literally embodies all my favorite aspects in a perfume. Next time you are at Sephora or Macy's, etc., definitely try this perfume- you'll love it!

OK so if you know me, you know about my nail polish obsession. I love getting manicures as much as the next girl but there's something so wonderfully relaxing and satisfying as doing your own nails.  I've been a fan of OPI for well over 12 years and when I found out they were collaborating with Sephora, I was beyond excited! I've accumulated quite a number of these polishes and when my older sister told me earlier this summer that Sephora was discontinuing this line (and that all of them were on clearance/sale), I had to stock up on my favorite shades. When I went to Sephora here over the weekend, I picked up this color below called "How Cute is That?" and I love it! I put it on last night and it looks great with my tanned brown skin haha! Definitely run by your local Sephora or check out their website because now all of their polishes are 3 for $10 and I stocked up when they were $4.50!!! Some of my favorite shades ("I'm Wired"; "Mr. Right Now"; "I Think I Cayenne") are sold out but they still have a TON of options left online!

On top of loving to do my own nails rather than getting manicures, I have to have the best tools/options. I am obsessed with this top coat (find it at Sally Beauty Supply or Amazon for an economical price and free shipping) since it dries almost instantly! I put a layer of this top coat on after two coats of color, even if the color layer isn't completely dry.  This top coat dries within 30 seconds to the touch and leaves a hard protective layer over your polish and gives it a beautiful shine.  I usually put a fresh layer of this top coat every few days if my nails start looking dull and usually keeps my polish from chipping for 10 days minimum! Definitely check this out and try it for yourself!!!
Ooooh, Amazon prime. One of the best investments I've made since I like to order things online and on top of free two-day shipping, I get unlimited instant streaming from their collection of tv shows and movies! I love watching shows (from the beginning of the series) that aren't on Netflix yet or if I want to start a new series.  Lately, so many people have been telling me to watch Suits (from USA) and I never really got into it until a couple weekends ago when I marathon-ed seasons 1-2 of Suits (currently in the 3rd season) and 1-3 of Covert Affairs (currently in the 4th season).  I must say, because of Amazon Prime, I am now obsessed with Mike Ross on Suits (ugh even though he's breaking so many laws practicing as a lawyer without a JD or license!!!) and the budget version of Alias, also known as Covert Affairs.  
Finally, I am obsessed with this eyeliner. I posted about my love for the Blackened Black version of this eyeliner before but I am seriously in love with the Blackened Cocoa one.  I felt like the black version was a bit too severe for everyday/office wear so I decided to try a little brown option and I layer this with the brown liquid liner from Sephora's makeup line.  Not only does it define my eyes really well, it rarely smudges and looks great with my skin! Definitely check this one out if you are looking for a classic liner but perfect for day-wear!

What are you loving this week??
