ON SUNDAYS WE BRUNCH IS A WEEKLY COLLECTION OF THOUGHTS, FAVORITES AND LINKS. FOLLOW ALONG TO DISCOVER NEW THINGS AND REMEMBER OLD ONES!
Welcome to On Sundays We Brunch Series Two! I’m hoping this will be a time for us to talk about life like we’re really sitting together over brunch and share favorites…articles, recipes, products, books, inspiration, whatever it may be!
Brunch is my favorite because the spirit is light, you have the whole day ahead of you afterwards, and all food is fair game and it often involves champagne. Urban Dictionary defines brunchin’ as “Midday lunchin’ acting a fool in the mid-morning to lunch time”. Could there be a more fitting description?
Grab a mimosa, pull up a chair and let’s chat! Oh, and if anyone wants to act a fool, I’m game.
I just spent a long weekend in Chicago with one of my best friends! We saw Beyonce and Jay-Z in concert with about 50,000 other crazy fans. It was the best concert I’ve ever seen, but would we expect anything less from Queen Bey and Jay-Z?! I was trying to live in the moment so I tried to keep my phone tucked away, but I did snap a few pictures!
I also ate that epic raclette sandwich at the top at the farmer’s market. How was your weekend?
I’m in love with Glossier cosmetics! This is seriously some of the most wearable, long-lasting and natural-looking make-up I’ve ever found. I first heard about it during the Royal Wedding when some Buzzfeed article popped up with tweets or something and someone mentioned Glossier. Being a total make-up fiend, I had to check it out. I love the foundation, concealer, and powder for starters and all the colors of the Cloud Paint and Haloscope dewy highlighters. These would be great gifts for the make-up lover in your life!
I’m obsessed with camper remodels and RV living! It’s quickly taken over my Pinterest browsing and feed. Anyone else dream of traveling the country in a (super-luxurious) RV? As long as I have someone to drive it for me…
