We had the best time in Newport, RI for Missy and Dan’s wedding. One of my favorite parts was that we got to stay with some of my best friends from high school, which we don’t always get to see enough. It’s amazing how friendships with certain people are just easy to maintain and make getting together guaranteed fun. I feel lucky to still have such good friends from such an awkward time in my life. 8 of us stayed an apartment with one bathroom and two bedrooms. It was on the smaller side but that made it more fun, I’d like to think. It’s also funny how our lives have all changed so much but at the same time still stayed aligned. I am so fortunate that my friends from high school have easily become friends with my college friends–all because of a small town called Hoboken ❤ . It’s nice to be able to go to fun events and feel like I have people from all walks of my life. Thankfully my husband decided to marry me, so I no longer have to cringe when someone brings up a story that I’m not so sure about sharing with him. He takes it all in stride and thankfully forgives me for my younger self.
It’s funny how we always go to the same friends for certain advice. I’d like to call it fully utilizing my “squad.” Jaclyn introduced me to makeup as a child, being that her mom conveniently worked at Clinique. We used to get all decked out at her shore house in Ortley Beach before heading over to the Surf Club for “Teen Night,” in hopes of meeting the Jersey Shore’s freshest crop of guidos. We often reminisce about my boy-craziness and her assistance as my wing-woman and best friend. Anyways, when it comes to makeup and recommendations I always ask Jaclyn (or my wedding makeup artist- Erin Taylor- http://www.makeupbyerintaylor.com). Jaclyn helped me this weekend for the wedding with some new eyeshadow options and showed me how to use this palette, which I’m pretty sure each and every makeup loving human should invest in. It’s called The Naked 2 palette and can be found at Sephora for $54. Sounds a little steep, but there’s 12 shades of eyeshadow and I’m sure it lasts a while, so you will get your money’s worth.
Here’s what it looks like:

Well, that’s all I have for this Monday morning…
