How’s it hangin? We are back with a QUICK little Weekly roundup. Let’s get it poppin’! I have 3 little tidbits for you this week.
Oh yeah, I said it.. Hunter Boots. I finally caved and got myself a pair of Hunter’s. They were actually a Christmas gift, but I had my eye on this pair for a while. I typically would give a hard time to girls who would wear Hunter Boots and North Faces…. but I ONLY gave them shit because in college, Hunter Boots and North Face’s came as a package deal. It was bizarre, it was like a starter pack for College girls. I have now turned a corner and realized how useful they are. It’s totally fine, I can swallow my pride when I need to.
So let’s talk about THIS pair exactly..
Potentially, the hottest pair of Hunter Boots this season, because they were nearly impossible to find. Every site had them, in theory? They were sold out everywhere. WHY DOES THIS HAPPEN TO ME! However, Kev’s mom came through and SOMEHOW found a pair for me.
Here is all you need to know if you are NOT a part of the Hunter Boot girl group yet.
Durable, Good traction, easy to clean.
That’s it! I will say as a disclaimer, if you are vertically challenged in the height department… Get the short boots. Short people with the taller Hunter boots are not a good match. They hit right under the knee and it ends up being a more painful experience. I have attached a couple of options that are VERYYY similar to my pair above.

Okay, so I know this isn’t exactly a READ of the week, more like a listen… but WOW! First thing you should know, is that I am a major podcast listener. Over the course of the last two years, making a 40 minute commute to and from work everyday can get REALLY boring. So I started listening to Lauryn and Michael Bosstick’s podcast while driving and I have learned more by listening than I ever would reading something.
However, this podcast particularly with Kelly Leveque is SOOOOO good you guys. If you’re just starting out a New Year’s resolution diet, or you are still trying to start one..(Ahem, ME!) then this podcast is a great kickstart. I am always truly fascinated by people who know so much about health and the body. Kelly is NEXT LEVEL.
This particular podcast episode gave me so much insight on HOW to get going on a diet. Obviously there is lots of tips on what to do WHILE you’re dieting, but the biggest thing I took from this episode was not throwing yourself into a diet FULL FORCE. Easing into a diet… (way more my speed.)
Kelly appears on TWO episodes of The Skinny Confidential, Him and Her Podcast. Episodes #68, and #98. BOTH are worth the listen, trust me. You’ll be inspired! HERE is where you can take a listen.
YOU. ARE. WELCOME.
All I will say, is Thank You Lauren Wienke for introducing me to this bottle of heaven. I must admit that when Lauren first approached me about spending money on a bottle of water for your face, I was not interested. Then I tried hers out, and I was HOOKED. This is the real deal when it comes to finishing sprays. It makes your makeup blend together sooooo nicely, and then it gives you this airbrushed finish! Can you tell I’m obsessed?
So, if you do decide to buy the world’s best Primer/finishing spray.. you must know the perfect technique to get flawless makeup.
Use your spray as a primer after moisturizer and sunscreen, before foundation. Immediately following your spritz, turn on your blowdryer on low with the COOL setting and dry your spray onto your face.
Apply ALL of your face makeup. Foundation, concealer, blush, bronzer, highlight. *** DO NOT APPLY EYE MAKEUP YET
Spray your face AGAIN with the Primer Water, and blow dry your face again to set your makeup. VOILA! You are a smooth makeup goddess.
I know you are now VERY interested in this product, so I have linked it for you…
And just like that! My three fav’s of the week. I hope you guys have a fun weekend planned! We have a SUPER busy one, so I am off to attend to my plans.
Catch ya on the flip….
