Hey, Dolls! I’m back! I know, I know! We can get to why I’ve been gone for so long at another time, let’s just jump back into the fabulousness!
Quarantine and ongoing stay-at-home mandates have led to some first world challenges, no salon services and what to wear during ongoing Zoom calls and social distance drive-bys. And, if you’re anything like me – super social – one’s spirits get a little low from time to time missing friends, family and colleagues. Miss Amazon and curbside pick-up have become my BFFs. That said, I want to share with you what a doll is loving during these of oh so uncertain times.
(1) I’ve been grabbing and loving my wicker handbag for quick store runs. It’s reminiscent of an afternoon picnic or beach party on Martha’s Vineyard. I dress her up, giving her different looks by changing out the twilly on the handle. Until next year MV. …
(2) No nail salon visits, no worries. Ive perfected press-on nails. I swear by Kiss Nails. There’s something for every fancy – French, a summer pop of color, long, short, square, coffin – you name it. With a little practice, you’ll be mani perfect for two weeks. (Don’t forget to grab some acetone for the soap off.)
(3) I’ve never been the lash girl, nor jumped on to the lash extension trend. Give me a Chanel or Lancome mascara and I’m good. However, I was intrigued by magnetic lashes and, well, I’m hooked. When I say easy to apply … beyond easy and will give your eyes an instant pop! My go-to is Eylure. Trust me on this one.
(4) Sometimes I just want to dress up (with no where to go). Enter lounge wear – and not yoga pants and a tank. No shade, I do those too. However, I picked up this fuchsia and brown silk twill set from J. Crew. So pretty and just the perfect wardrobe pick-me-up. I plan on wearing it for outdoor social distance entertaining before summer’s end.
5 + 6 are are simple self-care loves.
For Team Selby, vacation is off of the radar … decking and porching it is. But, it’s been 90+ degrees daily on the East Coast. To cool off and refreshing while I’m outside sipping I’ve been spritzing with Little Barn Apothecary Coconut + Pear Refreshing Mineral Mist. It’s cooling, smells so good and will immediately transport to the beach.
Nothing is better than a good candle. I picked up these Lemongrass Tea Candles by Milk Honey Candles from Home Goods. When I say I grabbed everyone they had. The smell is everything!
Ok, the “Should I” is this the Le Nine Carol Tassel bag I’m eyeing. I mean it’s chic and sparkles! Everything I love! Should I?
