The Must-Have, Under $15 Nude Eye Shadow Palette You Need In Your Makeup Bag

Nude Shadow Palette

I was browsing the beauty section at Target a couple weeks ago and fell in love with the gorgeous shades in the Sonia Kashuk Eye Palette. At under $15, this one is a budget must for your spring makeup bag!

This palette contains 6 pretty neutral shades (2 matte, 4 shimmer), including a taupe grey and dusty rose shades that I have pretty much been wearing all week. If pink neutrals aren't you're thing, there are two others-- one that is more basic nudes and one that is more whites.

If you're on the hunt for an inexpensive nude palette, this is one you won't be disappointed with. Are you a fan of nude eye shadow palettes?

Keeping It Classic & Casual

This week has felt long. Too long. I've had to take one of our cats to the vet because she wasn't eating since Sunday. She finally started eating again today and is acting more like herself, but I'll be taking her back next week to see if she has diabetes or if it's just stress. Poor kitty!

Okay, enough of the downers. This week I threw together a quick look with some closet favorites-- this hat that I can't stop wearing, my new favorite heels, and those perfectly comfortable pair of jeans, along with some new bling from Rocksbox*. Casual, classic, win.

The good part about today? The weekend is right around the corner! How's your week going?

Good HUES-Day: (Fake a) Spring Break

Staycation essentials

I'm not in school and I don't have kids so no spring break for me, but if I did, I would definitely be spending a few days at the beach, or maybe head to Palm Springs to lay out by a pool. If you're staying local for spring break, or still stuck indoors trying to stay warm, there's no shame in faking your spring break. Splurge on a super cute suit for summer, pick out your beach bag and get a head start on glowing, tan skin. You can even give your hair those sun-lightened strands for the ultimate fakeout!

What are your spring break plans?

At-Home Spa Day

Spa Day at Home

The Laundress NO. 247 Scented Candle | Essie Nail Polish: Just Stitched and Blossom Dandy | Zara Home Linen Detail Bathrobe | Uncommon Goods Spa In A Bag | Dermovia Lace Your Face Mask | Spa Water

Sometimes you just need to take a day for yourself but an expensive spa may not be a viable option. Instead, grab out your comfiest bathrobe and give yourself a DIY spa day-- complete with detoxing spa water (mix lemon and cucumber slices in water overnight-- add some mint to kick it up!), soak in the tube, give yourself a mani/pedi, and relax with a face mask (I highly recommend the above lace face mask-- not only is it made with lace but it really helps tighten pores and leaves skin so soft-- love!

Have you ever had a DIY spa day? What are your spa day must-haves?
