Monday Must Haves: May 18, 2015
Happy Monday friends! I hope you all had a great weekend. I know there was a lot going on in my little world from sporting events, to family dinner, and Sunday Funday. But it's a new week and it's time to get the party started.
This week is the last week of play for Premier League Soccer for this season. I love watching English soccer, even though the team I cheer got relegated to Champions League a few seasons ago. I believe you will see no fans that love their team more than that of English soccer, or any soccer for the matter. Right now Chelsea is at the top of the league table, but Manchester City is close behind.
Recently I've been discovering more and more beauty bloggers that I like, and one of the most recent has been Vivianna Does Makeup. Anna lives in the UK and talks all things hair and makeup related. If you're new to the whole beauty blogging thing, or are just looking for someone new to watch Anna is your girl. She has great tips, and her videos are never so complicated that you can't remake the looks yourself.

Since I graduated from college in December I've been on the hunt for the perfect work appropriate nude heel. I looked just about everywhere, until today when I spotted them at Nordstrom! And they were on sale! Even better right? These Steve Madden heels are perfect for the office, running around town as you get things for your clients, dressing up a pair of jeans, or adding a perfect basic to a little black dress.
I've been obsessing over the Real Techniques Bold Metals collection since they were announced. And last week I got two of these beautiful brushes for my birthday from my best friend. I love these brushes because not only are they the prettiest makeup brushes in all the land, they are still affordable. The handle of the brush is weighted so you don't have to work as hard to distribute makeup evenly. The bristles are hand-bound so they won't fall out or molt as much as bristles that are glued into a brush. And let's just be honest, these brushes are a total princess purchase, without the princess pricetag. (Especially if you buy them from Ulta buy one get one 50% off, then use a coupon!)
One of my favorite hair brands, Fudge Urban, announced the launch of a new product called Hair Art! What this product does is turn your hair any awesome shade of pastel you can think of, without the commitment. You want to go lilac like Lou Teasdale for the weekend but you have to wash it out before work Monday morning? Not a problem. Want to be cotton candy pink as you walk around Disney, but when you return to reality your hair has to be it's natural color? Hair Art has you covered. The product comes in a aerosol spray can, and work on every hair color! Right now it's only available at Superdrug in the UK, in Violet Haze, Turquoise Noise, and Pink Ink. Here's hoping it comes to America soon so I can live out my lilac hair dreams.
This week my mom, two best friends, and I are going to Disney for Magic Kingdom's 24-Hour Show Your Disney Side day to kick off The Coolest Summer Ever. This is one of two chances adults get to dress up as their favorite characters and enter the parks, so we are taking full advantage. I'm going as Ariel, from The Little Mermaid, which means I'm going to be listening to a lot of The Little Mermaid soundtrack this week!
Two words: BAD BLOOD.
If you're in the mood for one of the best cupcakes you will ever have, Sivadas Cupcakes is the place to go in Jacksonville. They have a huge variety, from everyday flavors like chocolate and vanilla, to really creative cupcakes like Boston cream pie and creme brulee. The cupcakes are giant, so they are definitely easy to share with someone. I go to Sivadas about once every few months and never regret it.
Well that's it for this week's Monday Must Haves. If you try any of these things, or have something you think I should try, let me know! Like this post if you wish you were in Taylor Swift's squad for that Bad Blood video.
