Weekly Obsessions

by Ally- Life as I know it, 5:00 AM



I've been using Beautycounter products for months now and just love them. I love that they feel great on my skin but most of all that they are free of sulfates, parabens, and harsh chemicals that shouldn't be in our skincare. I'm slowly trying to transition all my makeup over to Beautycounter as well and the first thing I tried was their lipstick in the color Twig. Twig is a neutral color that would look great on any skintone. Its the perfect color to wear for everyday and it feels so soft on your lips. It doesn't feel like normal lipstick, you know that waxy, sticky feeling, it feels like you're putting chapstick on. It smells like vanilla too. I picked this color to try first because I knew I could wear it with everything but I plan on ordering the color Petal next which is a pretty light pink color.







I have been stalking this top for awhile now and finally bought it once the price dropped. It's become my favorite top in my closet. It's so soft and I love the loose fit. I ordered a medium because some reviews I read said it ran small and I hate having shirts too short since I'm tall. I love shirts you can throw on with jeans and be out the door and this is fits the bill! Available in just a medium here and all sizes here.





My friend had a fur trim coat on the other night and I just loved the way it looked. It reminded me of Amy Adams in American Hustle. I was obsessed with her wardrobe in that movie. Now I'm obsessed with wanting a coat trimmed in fur! I'll take this Sabine one please!
 




This blouse is just gorgeous. It would look great for a night out or you could wear it with shorts in the summer.




I'm in desperate need for a new pair of neutral flats. My Lucky Brand Emmie ones have hit the dust so I'm stuck wearing this old pair of Jessica Simpson ones that also need to go in the trash. I want a pair of Yosi Samra ballet flats because I've heard they're very comfy and the price isn't bad at all. I just can't decide on a color. I want a color that goes with pretty much everything.
I'm leaning towards this Whiskey Color
And this Nude Color


But I think I'll probably get more wear out of the Whiskey color. Any comfortable and not too expensive flats your recommend?

  1. Ohh love that Madewell top! So pretty! And those flats look so comfy. I agree, I definitely think you'd get more wear out of the whiskey color!

  12. Love that top and lipstick. I want to try out that line next time I need a lipstick! I don't have any Yosi flats but my girls do. Their sizing for kids at least is a bit off but hopefully their women's are more tts. I love my Sam Edelman nude flats and always choose to wear them over my Tory Burch ones when I know I'll have a good distance to walk or if I'll be on my feet a lot!
