Sunday snapshot

        Happy Sunday! I thought it would be the perfect day to send a simple snapshot your way! It's been busy to say the least; after a 100+ hour workweek (yikes), some serious unwinding is in order. On my one day off this week, I've been enjoying simple delights...

1. Sips of Starbucks + an old fashioned donut
Confession: I add five Sugar in the Raw packets to my Starbucks iced coffees. As meals are few and far between, I've grown accustomed to a simple sugar and caffeine diet.

2. A color crash course in InStyle
In the latest issue, I'm loving the Color Crash Course on p.90. For me, the featured hue is right on cue. I've been reaching for a lot of sand colored pieces lately!

3. The French Open
Any tennis fans out there? To be honest, Mr. Lovey is more into matches than I am, but there's something nice about watching sports on Sundays.

4. CHANEL Rouge Allure in Radieuse
I know it's a coral time of year, but I just can't quit my cool pinks. CHANEL Radieuse (click for swatches) is one of my all-time favorite lippies. I'm not sure what I'll do if I ever finish my tube...

5. A white-out pedicure 
I once spent an entire summer wearing a white pedi. I guess you could say it's a classic Cute and Mundane shade! Right now I'm wearing Essie Blanc.

        Thanks for reading! What simple delights have you been enjoying lately? Do you have any favorite Starbucks snacks, polish picks, or magazine articles you'd like to share? I'm always looking for new recommendations!

Love, Dovey.


  1. I love the little loaves at Starbucks - blueberry and I think there's a carrot and a lemon - all delicious! Especially the La Boulange ones...(have they expanded to all Starbucks already? I don't remember.)

    1. Hi Larie, those sound delicious! I've seen La Boulange at the Starbucks cafes near me --- maybe it is universal?

    I haven't done a white mani in ages, always when I want to do one I grab other shades instead. I am still looking for the perfect white nail polish though, I find them very tricky to apply, I also own Essie Blanc but I lack skills I guess / Claire xxx

    1. Hi Claire,

      I agree that whites aren't the most friendly! Two shades of Blanc seem to work for me. I'm secretly coveting CHANEL Eastern Light --- perhaps worth it if the formula is nice!

  3. I have a weakness for the frappucinos at Starbucks. My new favourite is the espresso one.

    1. Hi Iris, such a good choice --- especially now that it's summer! I haven't had a frap in a while, but perhaps I should...

    Only 5 packets? lol I've gotta have my iced coffee sweet too, with a splash of creamer. I'm even making my own on a frequent basis.

    I bet that white pedi looks fab! I'll have to try that next. I was out with a girlfriend for my last salon pedi and got a french tip style, but had them use navy blue for the color instead of the white. I've gotten several compliments on the different look. I think that might be my new "go to" style.

  5. I'm not a fan of Starbucks coffee, but I love making lattes at home and drinking that while watching videos on YouTube! I haven't worn white polish in a while - I'm all about brights right now.

  6. What I am going crazy about lately is pastel nail colors for Summer. I also love layering nail colors and creating different nail arts. I super enjoy doing it.
