Monday Must Haves: July 25, 2016
Happy Monday, friends! I hope you guys had a great weekend! I've really been slacking here on the consistent blogging, but I've been pretty busy the past few weeks trying to get ready for my next Etsy shop opening, and to get ready to go to Disney! So I have a good excuse right? Well this week is full of awesome things, and I'm pretty sure you're going to love them!
I love doing runDisney events! In fact, next week I'm registering for my ninth runDisney event, the Star Wars Half Marathon Weekend- The Dark Side. (Which is great, because I align myself with the Dark Side) But there's a ton of stuff happening between now and actually running that race since it's in April! I have another runDisney even in November, and one in February, and training, and I'm waiting for some medals to come in the mail from three virtual races I did over the past few months. So I'm a firm believer in following runDisney on Twitter and IG to keep up to date with all of the registration dates, training tips, and race day announcements!
When it comes to designer bags Dooney & Bourke is one of the first designers I think of. They have been partners with Disney for a while now, and this month they are releasing four limited edition Magic Band designs that are going to be for sale around the Walt Disney World resort! These are seriously cute, and I would actually consider wearing my magic band on my wrist like you're supposed to if I had one of these! They are $50, which is pretty expensive when you think about the fact that magic bands are free when you reserve a room at any Walt Disney World Resort. But hey, we could all use a bit of extra cute in our lives, and these do just that!
One trend I'm loving this summer is a dark berry lip. I think it looks really chic, and we shouldn't have to wait until fall and winter to break out those dark colors again! I like to pair dark lips with a thin swipe of black eyeliner, or a light wash of gold eyeshadow and lots of mascara! One of my very favorite berry lip colors is Tarte Lip Paint in Hangry! It goes on really smooth, it lasts all day, and the color is awesome! (*Artsy* photo below!)
If you've been living under a rock this week you might not know that a new NeedToBreathe record came out two weeks ago. Well I've been listening to it non-stop and it's incredible! Go ahead a take a listen, then hit repeat the rest of the day.
If you live in Jacksonville, and love ice cream I'm begging you to make your way to 5FX Ice Cream and Taiyaki this week! There are locations all over town, and it's seriously the best ice cream. You pick what flavor you want (I like nutella) then you pick either one fruit or two non-fruit items to be your mix in, kind of like Cold Stone Creamery, and you pick what kind of milk you want, so you non-dairy people have no reason not be get ice cream because they have soy and coconut milk here! So what happens next? Your ice cream gets made right in front of you from milk, *nutella*, your mix in (I like bananas), and magic! It all happens on an anti-griddle that freezes the ice cream and the person making it mixes everything around. Honestly it's just glorious, and you need to get there!
I just wanted to make a note here that this is the last week to get anything in my Etsy shop before I close this Friday, July 29 for vacation, and a major restock. Some designs won't be restocked, but there is going to be a ton of new stuff! If there's something you've had your eye on, now is the time to get it. Everything is going out next day delivery. Thank you guys for your continued support for my shop! You're the absolute best.
