My Favorite Things: May

by Shelly

1.  I NEED this skirt!  Ok need may be a bit much, but want? Oh yes…definitely. Sheridan French was brought to my attention by a friend of mine. Thanks Trista!  And I instantly fell in love with her gorgeous tunics, bright colors, and THIS SKIRT!!!! It would be perfect for summer soirees, date nights and my birthday in July.  It’s absolutely beautiful and it needs to be mine.

2.  This soap caught my eye at West Elm a few weeks ago.  My husband comes from Swedish ancestry, so I tend to pick things up that even hint at being swede. Haha! The smell is divine and it looks so preppy cute on the countertop.

3.  Our dogs are mostly indoors, so consequently they require big cushy beds to lounge on.  They currently have beds from Martha Stewarts’ line at Petsmart and I haven’t been too happy with them.  And…they are definitely NOT as cute as this Dash and Albert dog bed! I’m a huge fan of the line and have been very happy with the quality of their products.  These will be seen in my home soon I think.

4. We ventured out to the desert for the big Coachella event a few weeks ago.  Having previously attended the concert (this was my eighth year), I knew that makeup tends to melt right off your face.  I decided to give this beauty balm a try after hearing so much about them.  Light weight coverage, primer, moisturizer, anti aging treatment, and sunscreen all in one….it sounds too good to be true.  However, I can tell you first hand THIS IS THE BEST STUFF!!!  I’m hooked.  It gives my blotchy, acne prone, sensitive skin a nice amount of coverage and hides my flaws, and I’ve also noticed an overall improvement to the texture.  You must try this!

5. I instantly fell in love with this tunic when I laid eyes upon it at Anthro.  It’s has a slight vintage feel and is just the look I tend to lean towards for summer.  It will be a great piece to dress up with bright skinny jeans and wedges or down with cutoffs and sandals.

6.  It’s no secret that I love a good monogram. This pillow would look adorable in our British inspired living room.


Hope you all have a fabulous weekend!
