I haven’t done a round-up style post like this in a while, but they used to be some of my favourites to write. Welcome back to the What’s on my Radar series in which I write a quick roundup of what I’ve been loving lately! Here’s what’s tickling my pickle these days.
Beauty – What I’ve been loving lately
One of my favourite beauty bloggers raves about this product all the time. Until recently, I didn’t think it was available in Canada so I was thrilled when I noticed a lone bottle of the stuff at the drugstore a few weeks ago. After washing my hair I apply this liberally to my locks, followed by a curl cream. The result is shiny, bouncy hair with nary a tangle in sight! This product definitely gets a 10 from me.
I’ve talked about my love of Jo Malone perfumes before, you can read the post here. These fragrances are luxurious, long lasting, and the scents are gorgeous. When I saw that Sephora was offering a sample size of Jo Malone’s latest launch, Poppy & Barley, I made an order and grabbed it! The scent is a bit unusual for me because it’s a floral but it’s not overpowering. It’s light and fresh. It was love at first spritz.
I tend to wear the same pieces of jewelry everyday and because of this, I rarely purchase anything new. However, when I spotted Machete earrings on Lee’s blog I was swooned. A few months ago I added the Mini Hoops in Classic Tortoise (pictured above) to my collection and I’ve worn them pretty much every day since.
What I’ve been loving lately – Books and TV
I read The Handmaid’s Tale many years ago, and again when I started watching the tv series. When I found out that Margaret Atwood was coming out with a sequel I was thrilled and I bought it the day it was released. I read it over the next two evenings and I could not put it down. If you haven’t read this yet I suggest you run out and grab it right now! It was so, so good.
If you’re looking for something binge-worthy on Netflix you should check out Unbelievable. Without giving too much away, it’s based on a true story of a rape victim who was not believed. The acting is great and the show is especially poignant in the Me Too era. The subject matter is heavy but the show is gripping and I loved it.
