Mingle Monday Blog Hop!

I made it back after such a fabulous Chicago weekend!
After such an unbelievable dream trip with my love and some of our favorite people, I feel like I am just glowing today. My heart is basking in the afterglow of memories made and fun times had. A HUGE thank you to all of you who left advice and great city tips - you're the best!

Dying to share all the photos, stories, sweet moments, and fun with all of you, but first we must mingle! And second, I should probably try to find my camera charger/loader... but stay tuned!

Anyway, I hope all of you are doing well! I absolutely love seeing what you're up to via Pinterest and Twitter, so keep the good things a'coming! It's fun to connect outside the blgo world too!

{ Let's mingle! }

  1. Nobody has linked up yet, but my favorite product is Mary Kay's eye primer. Ah-maze-ing!

    I checked out your blog and looked at your Colorado trip...your tie-dye is adorable, you and your BF are just darn cute, and hello bagpipes! How randomly awesome.

    <3 Happy Monday!

  2. Happy Monday!!! I am so pleased you had a fab time! Look forward to seeing pics as I would love to visit Chicago.

    My favourite beauty product is anything to do with Clarins!!! However, I have started using Volcano foot mask from Lush which is to die for :-)

  3. My favorite beauty product has to be vegan, and I'm in luck because there's so many great vegan options out there! I love Aveda moisturizer, Smashbox primer and concealer, Arbonne foundation and bronzer! I visited 'If It's Not OK then It's Not the End' and was reminded of the wisdom of Winnie the Pooh. I love quotes and it's a great idea for a post!

  4. I love Genifique from Lancome!
    I stopped by Librarianista - she was reviewing Divergent, and I'm thinking about picking it up! :)
    Off to stop by some more!

  5. Stopped by two new blogs for me and loving them both! Happy Girl and Winnie Wisdom will both get your Monday off to a good start!

    My beauty product is Covergirl lashblast mascara. Probably the best ever! I also just bought some sparkle eyeliner from Avon that I am LOVING!

  6. I stopped by Starfish and With Intention. Both were so cute! With Intention has GREAT taste in shoes and Starfish and I both share a love of proposals. :)

    And beauty product I swear lip gloss. I carry it around with me ALL THE FREAKING TIME and I flip out if I can't find it. I'm addicted. Right now I have one from Bath and Body Works and it's called Frozen Daquiri.

  7. I stopped by Starfish who loves proposals and Happy Girl who had a sweet open letter to Monday and other things.

    I love anything from MAC.

  8. I am trying to leave comments on other blogs, but Blogger won't let me log in. Just know I am reading!

    I LOVE Sephora OPI nail polish.

  9. Thanks for hosting! It's so fun!

    My favorite must-have beauty product is rose water. I spray it on to keep my skin hydrated.


  10. I am SUCH a hair product junkie, the lines I love include Shea Moisture, Aubrey Organics and Kinky Curly.

    I visited "ciao! newport beach" who I started following just for how diverse her blog is. She's got some great Monday eye candy up, and awesome children's halloween costumes.

    I also visited "Body Won't Break" who is documenting her fitness journey.

  11. Happy Mingle Monday!

    Seriously one of my favorite parts of Monday!

    Q: Beauty products I swear by?
    A: Purpose Gentle Cleansing Wash (I get mine from Target) it is the most gentle, best feeling face wash I have every used! Its as gentle as can be on sensitive skin like mine! I couldn't live without it!

  12. my favorite beauty product is baby oil, hands down. it works to take mascara off like no other product out there and makes my skin super soft after showering.

    for today's mingling, i stopped by the librarianista, southern california chic and a body that won't break. three lovely new-to-me blogs that i will definitely be following =)

  13. My favorite beauty product is Aveda Outer Peace cleanser. My face has never been clearer or healthier.

    Today I stopped by Live with Intention, and she had some awesome shoe selections along with a sobering post on job hazards. I also stopped by Live in the Moment and was instantly inspired by her DIY craftiness! Happy Girls has a great outlook on Mondays, so be sure and check it out!

    Happy Monday!

  14. Happy Monday. I have used Bare MInerals for years and I haven't been disappointed yet.

    I stopped by Happy Girls are the Prettiest....she shared an amazing Monday quote that I will probably steal, with her permission of course.
    I also stopped by Fay's Book who kind of inspired me to get in shape with the picture of an awesome tummy, result of P90X.

  15. My favorite beauty product is powder foundation. I think I use Almay...I don't really remember because that stuff lasts forever! And it's so much "cleaner" than the liquid variety.

    Life in the Moment talked about so great crafts she's done lately. In addition to a very true quote, If it's not okay, it's not the end posted about what seems like a very relaxing Sunday. :)

  16. Following and honestly? A really great moisturizer. Nothing fancy, just the super hydrating moisture from Neutrogena. :-)

  17. Favourite beauty product, probably my AG Fast Food for my hair :)

    I stopped by life in the moment who had a couple of great DIY projects, including a magnetic makeup board. Very cool!

    I also went to Throw the Starfish Back. She found some very touching websites but I'm afraid to check them out because it sounds like they reduce you to tears!

  18. Dr Perricone High Potency Evening Repair - it's a bit pricey but preventing wrinkles is worth it!
    I stopped by Throw the Starfish back and she gave a heads up on some cute proposal websites.
    Also checked out ciaonewportbeach - loved looking at all the kiddo Halloween costumes - so cute!

  19. I live for Mary Kay products! I dont use anything else! LOVE LOVE LOVE them!

    Happy Girls are Pritty Girls! Love her title and her blog is so cute!
