May was not a glamourous month in the purchase department. Hence, the washcloths in the picture below. And while plain, cheap, white washcloths are boring, they’ve been a great addition to my nightly skincare routine. My esthetician recommended that I use a new washcloth every night to help wipe all of the make-up and dirt off my face. She also recommended a great new serum (not included because I considered it “toiletries”) and a new-to-me line of mineral make-up. I also picked up my tinted moisturizer sunscreen for summer. Aside from my beauty investments, I purchased a new outfit from Target after getting soaked in the rain while visiting Austin. While a new sweatshirt and casual pants wouldn’t have been on my radar to add to my spring wardrobe, I’ve been getting surprisingly a lot of use out of these.
I am also excited about some upcoming styling collaborations (my home office and my pantry/laundry room) I have with some of my favorite brands. You get a little sneak peek by seeing my gifted items list below.
