Three Favorite Things Thursday

Today at STYLEanthropy, I’m sharing a new Three Favorite Things Thursday post! In case you missed it, I shared my first of the weekly series here. This week, it’s all about makeup. I didn’t plan this on purpose. But I received some of the best makeup packages in the mail the past few days, it just made sense to share them in today’s post! So what best makeup products am I talking about? Read on!

DIY Pompom Headband + New Summer Hair Color

Disclosure: This shop has been compensated by Schwarzkopf #KeratinColor #KeratinCares

Today at STYLEanthropy, I’m sharing a super easy DIY Pompom headband – to celebrate my new summer hair color. You know I love to play with my hair a lot. Recently, I lightened the bottom half of my hair. And while it looked nice from afar, up close it looked dry. I don’t know if it’s just me. But when you have naturally dark hair, and you go way lighter than your dark shade, it looks unhealthy. Or maybe I just used the wrong hair dye. So, to change things up, I went a few shades darker (Cashmere Brown 5.5) all over my hair and used Schwarzkopf Keratin Color this time around. Voila! Better and healthier looking summer hair color! I’ll talk more about it below, but first, let me share an easy DIY to accessorize your summer hair.

White Romper at the Galleria

A few weekends ago, we headed out to Galleria to cool down with some drinks. Since it was pretty hot that day, I wore this light and breezy white romper with the prettiest details. Lace, check. Ruffles, check. Lace up back, check. It’s such a perfect summer romper that can easily be dressed up or down with accessories. Here’s how I wore mine that day.

I don’t know what it is about summer that makes me want to cook and host parties. Perhaps it’s that feeling of vacation season, or the warmer temperature, the summer colors, and flavors that inspire me to host family and friends. So today, I thought I’d share this easy breakfast hotdog sliders to serve at your next brunch or backyard BBQ. Yeah, I called it breakfast sliders, but you can definitely serve this anytime of the day. I just love how easy it is to whip up when you have guests staying over. Let’s begin, shall we?

Embroidered Details at South Side

Hey everyone! It’s finally Friday! Hope everyone is looking forward to their weekend. Today at STYLEanthropy, I’m sharing some embroidered details of my outfit that we took at South Side in Pittsburgh. The Steel City is flourishing with art and it’s no surprise you can find a ton of murals and art installations throughout the city. When I found out about these butterfly walls in South Side and colorful blocks at the South Side bike trail, I just had to go there and take photos. The artist behind, Baron Batch, is simply amazing at leaving all these works of art throughout the city of Pittsburgh. Thank you!

Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 2017 Early Access

It’s the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale and it’s probably the most awaited sale of the year. Today is the start of early access to the #NSale and I’m pretty sure you’ve heard a thing or two about it. Maybe a little too much and you’re probably thinking, “not you too” or “not again”. But hear me out. I’ve been sharing sales and the best deals ever since I started blogging in 2008. So it’s only natural that I share one of the most important sales of the year. Besides, with so many items on sale, I’m sure to pick something different from the other blogs somehow. Now, in case this is something new to you, then I’m going to tell you why people go crazy over this sale below. But first, let me share this outfit I’m obsessed with!

Three Favorite Things Thursday

Today at STYLEanthropy, I thought I’d start a new series that I’m calling Three Favorite Things Thursday. I know it’s not very original – especially with other bloggers doing Five Favorites Friday. But just hear me out. I know I regularly share with you my favorite things on social media. So why not share them in a weekly series here on the blog too? And besides, you know I get sent different products to try and test out. So it would be easier to combine a few of them in one blog post. Because if I’m being honest, if I write a separate blog post for each, I will be drowning in work. And if I post everything on my IG, it would feel like I’m spamming you. And I don’t want that. So the solution? Three Favorite Things Thursday!

A couple of weeks ago, I was sent the new thriller book from B.A. Paris, “The Breakdown”. The book will be out on July 18, but I got to preview and read it first to tell you my thoughts! Don’t worry. No spoilers here. I’m just going to give you my honest opinion about the book. And to give you an idea, I HIGHLY RECOMMEND The Breakdown as a thrilling summer read!

Virginia Beach Travel Part 2

Today, I’m finally sharing part 2 of our Virginia Beach Travel post. Sorry if it has been delayed. I just feel a little burned out lately, after getting sick last week. Sometimes we just need to step back from all the work and relax. We could all use a vacation every now and then, right? That’s why today’s post couldn’t come at a better time. Writing this post is already inspiring me to plan our next adventure. Let’s get to it then! Check out more photos of our Virginia Beach trip below. And if you missed part 1, make sure to check here first.
