Smitten: Pretty in Pink

Once again, thanks to everyone who read/commented/ on my posts while I was away. 
And thanks for my wonderful guest posts, sweet ladies, like Applied Glamour!
I'm getting caught up on comments, and please let me know if I've accidentally not visited your blog.
Thanks! Love, Elle

After a month of No Shopping (post coming soon on this!) I was surprised at how restrained I was! I did shop a little at ELF and Ulta, because makeup (like I need more, right? Wrong answer! Yes, yes I need it) makes me feel prettier. Here's what I'm smitten with this month: things that remind me of Valentine's DayEnjoy!


{ELF gloss that is so pretty and wearable...the glitter ones remind me of MAC Lipglass}
{ELF shimmer cream shadows...so pretty and romantic}
{Miss Dior Cherie...I always start wearing it around this time of year}
{Maybelline Dream Bouncy blush...obsessed with this! Last seen here}
{Valentine cookies...another annual tradition}

{a Glade candle next to a mirror always looks fancier+ adds ambiance}

{a giveaway prize from Minted...I've filled up 5 pages already with ideas}

{Trader Joes...my favorite source for budget blooms...these are in a red vase #colorblockingobsession}

{a little Pinky Glitter by Sinful Colors to brighten a gloomy day}

{and for my random item, I'm smitten with this Contigo thermos
No more spills--I'm rather clumsy--and it keeps my drinks cold all day.}


What has you Smitten lately?

  5. I'm currently on a bit of a shopping break as well. But a couple weeks ago I picked up two striped, sequined tanks from Gap and I can't wait to wear them all summer long. The sequins are clear for the perfect amount of subtle shimmer.

    My shopping diet is going well. It's the first time I'm doing something like this but it's great. Today alone I walked away from over $800 of things I probably would have bought otherwise! I can't wait to read your post about your no shopping month!

    I can't wait to receive my glossy box this month, because I'm not buying cosmetics this month either!
