Monday Must Haves: May 11, 2015
Happy Monday friends! I hope you had a great weekend filled with love for your mom! I know my mom had all the feels after my best friend and I bombarded her with love. But she definitely deserved it. In fact, she said it was the best Mother's Day ever! Big statement there huh?
This week on Mingling With Megan it's going to be all about birthday's because my birthday is Wednesday! So expect a lot of birthday advice from someone who's had fab birthday's and really drab birthdays.
Yesterday, The Players Tournament ended the way I've never seen a golf tournament end before. There was a playoff of sorts between three of the players, then a sudden death. In the end Rickie Fowler won. So congratulations to him on a great week of golf!
If you didn't realize last week with all of the Disney posts, I'm obsessed with the magical place in Orlando. I recently stumbled upon a great Instagram account that's all things Disney called DoYouWannaGoToDisney! The girl who runs it is an Annual Passholder at Walt Disney World, and her pictures are beautiful. It really does help the post-Disney depression to follow some fan accounts and she is one of the best.
Birthday outings require the perfect outfit! I can't really think of anything that would top a little black dress, except for black jumpsuit. I'm loving jumpsuits right now anyways, and I'm on the hunt for the perfect one, which is really hard. I think the best jumpsuits are going to be structured really well with a skinny or tapered leg, strapless or racerback, then have some sort of cool detail like a cutout or lace overlay. Or you can make a pretty plain jumpsuit your own with a belt, strappy shoes, a great bag and a statement necklace.
There's nothing better on your birthday than having your makeup be the best of your group. You are the star for the day, so you need to stand out like one. That can only mean one thing, the perfect red lip! If I'm going out and wanting a lipstick that isn't going to transfer through dinner, cake, presents, endless giggles and tons of pictures I'm reaching for one of two different products. The first one is Rimmel London Kate Moss 111 Kiss of Life. This lipstick is absolutely perfect when it comes to drugstore prices and quality. In fact, this color usually doesn't leave my purse and it's almost time to purchase a new one. The other product is Nars Dragon Girl. Yes, that Dragon Girl. The one that Nars doesn't make anymore, but everyone loves because Taylor Swift said it was her favorite red. You can still find this product in some Sephora stores, and online! So go have that red lip classic thing for your birthday.
You've gotten ready, you have on the perfect outfit, your makeup looks great, your friends come around to pick you up and the car is blaring the perfect dance jam. What is it? It's "New Romantics" by Taylor Swift. Talk about a perfect birthday anthem! With lyrics like "And every day is like a battle, but every night with us is like a dream," "We are too busy dancing to get knocked off our feet. Baby, we're the new romantics, the best people in life are free!" it's a definite #girlsquad song!
For probably the past five or six years my best friend and I have sent this video to each other for our birthdays. So I thought I would share it with you.
While I normally put local restaurants in my food section, this year my birthday falls on a Wednesday, which means it's Wine Wednesday at Carrabbas! Yes, I will be going to Wine Wednesday with my mom and hanging out with our favorite bartender, Christy.
If Carrabbas isn't your thing then that's fine. Go where you want. It is your birthday afterall. Just go where the food is good and the company is even better.
Also before you go out to do anything for your birthday, check your squad. I don't mean like check to make sure they don't have lipstick on their teeth (but if they do, tell them!). What I mean by this is usually a small number of people is better than a large number of people. Keep your circle tight, have squad goals for the night. Don't let people come that you don't want there! It's your night, not someone else's! This is my squad:
Also, birthdays are about more than presents. They are about celebrating a new year of adventure, fun, and memories to be made with your friends and family. But if someone's asking what I want for my birthday I'll take one of these, please:
So that's it for this week's Monday Must Haves! If it's your birthday this week, you try any of these things, or have something you think I should try out, let me know in the comments. Like this post if you think you and your squad have major #SquadGoals.
