I mean, I’m not sure I’ve ever met a cookie I didn’t like but man are these brown butter and toffee chocolate chip cookies gooood. A Bon Appétit recipe wins again. Taking them with us this weekend as part of a hey, thanks for watching my kid overnight package but some might have to get left behind to save for later!
Beyonce – she’s such a queen. I’m so out of the loop I didn’t even realize she was going to be performing at Coachella, but I happily caught parts from the full live-stream I found on Monday night. That video is down now, like every other one. I get it, but I’m sad I didn’t get to see more so I’ve been listening to her this week to make up for it!
This long wear lip color. I love lipstick but don’t like to wear it unless my skin is completely clear – maybe because I feel like avoiding drawing attention to my face if it’s blemished? After a stretch of time with skin that was giving me problems I had given up on it, but it’s better! I’m back! And the Blossom Berry color I thought was perfect for fall feels just as perfect for that slowly creeping into spring season too.
These hoop earrings. I love Micki’s shop and had been looking for just the right hoop after deciding it was earring style I could get behind again so when I found this wrapped pair they felt perfect. The detail is so fun that I had a hard time picking which color I wanted. I narrowed it down to blush or white and the blush being sold out made that choice for me. She just posted these earrings for the first time recently though, so I bet she’ll bring them back if you have your eye on a sold out color.
This week’s favorite listen was Jen Hatmaker’s podcast episode with Latasha Morrison. I’m really having a long (maybe permanent by this point?) moment with strong, courageous women and hearing about the work she’s doing around conversations about race through her Be the Bridge organization had me feeling like there’s work we can all do to contribute to change.
Second week in a row I’m including a Cup of Jo post – how am I just now realizing how much I love her blog? But after last week’s fav bringing tears to my eyes, this week’s favorite made me laugh. Scroll through the comments if you want to keep the laughter going! If you’re a parent, what’s your answer? I think mine would have to be “Alexa, set time for 5 more minutes”…
