A few of my favorite things - July 2014

          Happy Saturday! I've been enjoying a week filled with brown paper packages (tied up with strings), thanks to some major hauling this past fourth of July weekend. I can't wait to share new discoveries from J.Crew, Cole Haan, and my favorite beauty brands, as soon as I have the chance to take a few snaps. In the meantime, I have stationery, songbirds, and other delights to share with you on this edition of A few of my favorite things!

1. Kate Spade Saturday notebook
Knowing my Kate Spade aficionada ways, my mom picked up this cute paper notebook for me. The pages are lined with fun yellow graph paper.

2. Parker ballpoint pen in Pink Ribbon
I'm loving this sleek little pen; it's a chic alternative to your usual twelve-pack pens. (And it's pink!)

3. CHANEL Poudre Universelle Compacte in 20
There's something iconic about this CHANEL compact! I'm loving the soft finish it adds on top of my CHANEL Perfection Lumière foundation.

4. CHANEL La Nuit de Chanel Evening Recharging Face Care
I'm loving this little sample of La Nuit de Chanel (the evening cream from CHANEL's new skincare lineup)! The frankincense extract adds a luxurious aroma to the experience.

5. US Postal Songbirds stamps
You know me, I had to pick up this bird themed set of Forever Stamps. Every time I head to the post office I'm tempted to start collecting again...

6. Bobbi Brown eyeshadow in Cement
I've been falling in love with my Bobbi Brown eyeshadows (for the umpteenth time). Cement is among my signature shades.

7. MAKE UP FOR EVER Aqua Brow in Ash (click for my review)
After going the eyeshadow route for my brows these past months, I finally converted back to using MAKE UP FOR EVER's Aqua Brow formula. It adds a little more lasting powder during warmer months.

         Thanks for reading! What have you been loving lately?

Love, Dovey.

    That cement color looks like it would make a good contour color? I've been loving Clinique chubby sticks for lips. Such lovely sheer colors for summer. great post!

  2. I can definitely spot a love for sleek black packaging! :-) Great picks Dovey! I may have to check out Cement! :-)


  3. Love the "Sound of Music" bit there! (Although the post office won't take anything with strings nowadays..)
    I was just looking at the Chanel pressed powder the other day. How does it perform for midday touch-ups?

    Great picks! Once my current brow product is finished, I think I NEED Aqua Brow! Way too many rave reviews.

  5. Ooh at the bird stamps. I love birds!
    I used to collect stamps too and occasionally pick up ones which interest me.

  6. I love all of B's sheer eye shadows. Right now, Cement is my current favorite.
