1. The Urban Decay Naked Palette
Many of you mentioned your love for this eyeshadow palette when I told you I bought it.
Well, after a couple weeks of using it... I, too, am in love!

I bought this because I've heard rave reviews about the beautiful, nude colors and the lasting power.
As far as the lasting power, I'm not so sure that they last any longer than my former nude palette, NYX Cosmetics Champagne & Caviar, which, by the way, retails for $12. (Compared to $48 for the Naked Palette)
As you can see, the colors are quite similar, as well.
The Naked Palette does come with a brush and a mini Primer Potion, which are wonderful additions!
I would recommend both of these tremendously, although the Naked Palette takes the cake due to their higher pigmentation & silkier texture.
2. The book I recently rediscovered, Bergdorf Blondes.
I read this book years ago, but found it in a random drawer when I was home for Easter. I've read so much of it within the past few days and am LOVING it! It's such a light-hearted read. As it's based in NYC, it's getting me even that much more excited for our trip in a couple weeks.
3. The Royal Wedding
may or may not have have gotten up at 4am to watch the live ceremony, but I did wake up at 7:30am to tune in. I feel that I've gotten enough recaps (over and over, again) that it doesn't matter that I didn't see it all live.
I have one word...
Her gown was stunning. I'm predicting that we'll see a lot more long-sleeved gowns in future American weddings.
I seriously can't get enough.
...and that hats!
Don't get me started.
4. I'm loving that Brandon and I are going out to get our favorite sushi tonight at O-ku.

5. I'm loving the beautiful weather we have here in Charleston today!
All I need is a hammock & I'd be set.
6. I'm loving these beautiful bathrooms.
Hope you all have a wonderful Friday, loves!
