Evening at Alamo DraftHouse

Hi Guys!

Last week was an absolute whirlwind! I was playing catch up all week from my travel the prior week on emails, meetings, calls, and events.  Sometimes I feel like going out of town can be so stressful because I have so much to do when I get back.  The house is a disaster, my suitcase has exploded and taken over our bedroom, and I always have to retrain my body to get back on a regular workout routine (thats for a whole other post).  Luckily I had carved out a little time for fun in my schedule - and the grand opening of the Alamo Drafthouse did not disappoint! 

When Jonny and I first started dating we saw a new movie every week.  As our schedules have gotten fuller, we are pretty picky about how we spend our time and until now have not had the option to enjoy dinner AND a movie in the same venue unless we  drive at least 30 minutes from Denver. So I could not be more thrilled that their is now an Alamo Drafthouse (Sloans Lake) so close to us.

I bumped into a familiar face (Lacey from My Boring Closet - you met her here and here), at the grand opening and before exploring the theater, we were greeted by some rapping magicians on a tilt-o-whirl tuk tuk (I think??)... they insisted we take a ride and "raise the roof", which we of course could not pass up!  I doubt they will be at every movie, but they definitely made for a wonderful first impression.

Jonny and I are already planning our next movie date and can't wait to try the full dine in movie experience.  If you saw my instagram post last week, then you know that the weather was INSANE so getting dressed last week was a little interesting.  I went with this new favorite, lightweight top ($16) (also comes in white)! I have worn it with these white jeans ($59) and these navy shorts ($125) too!  And I wore my favorite OLD sailor trousers, so I am sorry to say they are out of stock, but I found a very similar pair here ($35) and here ($40).

What great movies have you seen lately? Would love to hear your recs!

NSale Beauty picks

Hi Friends!

The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is now open to the public - yipee!! As I mentioned last week, this sale is one of the best of the year and a chance to get a peek at fall pieces at great prices.

I rarely talk about beauty products because my makeup routine is pretty simple (and boring honestly).  But the makeup that I wear, I love and buy over and over again and I always stock up on this time of year.  

Even at 29, I still think in terms of school years (the new fall season). Although makeup is not typically a priority, I always love stocking up on fresh new palettes like this one, this one and this one which are pretty much all you need!  And a fresh new scent and an oldie but goodie every year.  I love this perfume by Tory Burch and I have worn Daisy by Marc Jacobs since my wedding (almost two years ago).

I have been a Bobbi Brown girl since I learned what makeup was.  I love Bobbi's (I pretend like I actually know her) natural and effortless style.  On a typical day I wear this moisturizer with SPF ($46), this blush ($28), this mascara ($28), a little of this bronzer ($46), and lip gloss ($26).  These anniversary sale sets offer beautiful combinations with the makeup that I usually wear, but also throw in some fun new colors that I wouldn't think to use on a daily basis. I love that this set has everything you need for a great smokey eye - Bobbi Brown Smokey Eye mascara is my second favorite after Bobbi Brown Extreme Party (I like that it can be layered on and wont clump).

Have a fantastic week friends and let me know what else you would like me to cover!  The sale lasts until August 7th.
