Loving Lately

Here's a collection of things/people/places that I love so much, I feel the need to write them down. I don't think this will be a monthly thing, since I really don't go through many new things in a month, but this post will go from the beginning of the year until now.

BEAUTY

Neutrogena Ultra Sheer Liquid Sunscreen
I've been meaning to start wearing sunscreen, but haven't been able to find one that is lightweight enough to wear underneath makeup... until now. I either put a couple drops in my hand and dab onto my face, or mix a couple drops in with my moisturizer and use it as a base. It's very lightweight and the consistency is like water. It dries to a very smooth, non greasy finish and feels great. Start wearing sunscreen people. There are so many benefits - slower aging, limit sunburn, and prevents skin cancer caused by UV rays.

BLOGGERS

Jane runs a Sydney based lifestyle blog. It's a beautiful website and I ran into it this month and have been trying to catch up! I love her outfits and her clothes. I feel like every single outfit I scroll through on her blog, I'm constantly thinking - I have similar pieces, I should wear it like that. Her style ranges from quite girly to quite edgy

Kristina's blog is also another recent discovery for me. Her outfits are just so damn cohesive. Her blog is a huge source of silhouette inspiration for me - especially this post. And I love seeing repeat pieces of clothing that she owns worn in different outfits as well. Her blog reminds me a lot of Dead Fleurette!

THINGS

Where has this been all my life? Goodbye iron, hello steamer! This is so gentle on your clothing and gets rid of wrinkles without the pain of having to lay out your clothing flat and iron it. And also without the iron crease lines too. This one is just $30 dollars and is even smaller than the iron that I have. I'm obsessed with it. The first day I received it, I steamed every single dress in my closet.

I picked one of these up at Whole Foods in the produce section, and it has stayed with me since then. It's a string bag, sort of like a loose knit mesh. I use it to hold groceries, lunch, boots, anything. I love that it compresses up super small and is portable, but has the stretch to it to hold a lot of stuff.

PLACES

The outdoor season for GCM is officially started! I love farmer's markets, and this is one of the largest in Chicago. It's located in Lincoln Park, right in the park. I'll be visiting next weekend and am excited to eat some good food.

  1. A clothing steamer is the best! I got rid of anything that needs any actual iron.

    1. I used to avoid rayon clothing because it got so wrinkly out of the dryer. So glad for this steamer.

  2. Thanks for the shout-out <3 To be honest, I don't even iron my clothes, it seems like too much fuss... I should probably look into a steamer!

    1. I don't either - I usually wear to iron haha. But the steamer is a life changer! I'm addicted to it.

  3. So flattered! Thank you for linking me :) Btw, for your clothes steamer--have you ever tried steaming linen with it? I have a few things I really ought to iron/steam.

    1. I'll try on some linen pants I have and report back, but I steam my silk shirt and it's totally gentle and hasn't damaged the fabric at all.

  4. I've heard so many great things about that sunscreen! Unfortunately, I don't think it's available in the UK.

    1. :( That sucks. There are quite a few brands in the UK that I wish I could try as well! Bourgeois being one of them!
