Bargains & Brunch

Happy happy Monday girlfriend! It's ok if you just rolled your eyes, because I was holding it back too. Monday's are tough, especially after a fun weekend. I'm trying to change my attitude about Monday mornings though and challenging myself to see each week as a fresh start....starting with drinking a whole pot of coffee and eating a bunch of chocolate....Ok, enough mush and on to some brunch and bargains!

I just stumbled upon this food blog The First Mess and I am loving the recipes and writing style so far. Check it out! 

 These Lemon Poppy Seed Pancakes look amazing! I plan on making this weekend with a side of mimosas ;).

Jon and I have been all about some cold brew coffee lately. I know we will probably switch completely over to iced coffee as soon as it heats up here in South Carolina. I'm going to add this cold brewed coffee recipe to my morning routine this week.

Smashbox has been one of my favorite makeup brands for a while. Though it's a little pricey, it's great quality and lasts for a long time! Smashbox does not go on sale that often but when they do offer a sale I jump on it! They are offering 40% off some of their best sellers. Here are a few things in my shopping basket.  

This is my favorite primer! It lasts all day and keeps your makeup in place and your skin glowing!

On a completely unrelated note, have you listened to The Lumineer's new album Cleopatra?! It was released on Friday and is streaming on Spotify. I.can't.get.enough! LOVING their single Ophelia. Check it out...or not, but for real do it! 

Thank you so much for stopping by!
