What’s going on with me:
Apologies for the lack of posts this week – I was prepping for a garage sale I held today. Didn’t realize how much work goes into planning one of these. It went okay – aside from the rain that set in early afternoon and not selling as much as I would have liked. My garage is looking a lot cleaner though!
I’m going to be changing my blog name in September! I actually love the name of “Classic Maggie” but I think it’s confusing, given that my name isn’t Maggie. My new name will be something more reflective of my entire blog so stay tuned for more info on that in the next month or so.
We went and watched Jason Bourne last weekend. It was good and I’m a big Matt Damon fan, but I feel like they’re getting a bit – okay a lot, predictable now. On the other hand, I cannot wait to see Sully!
Have you seen/heard?
What do you think of the new Instagram stories? I don’t know how I feel about it – on one hand I kind of feel like Instagram should just stick to what they do best and stop screwing around with what works. On the other hand I don’t want to be an opponent to change…because sometimes change is good. But I feel like they’re just trying to hard to become a mix of all other social media platforms. Thoughts?
Are you playing Pokemon Go? I downloaded it and tried it out – and I just couldn’t get into it. I have way too many things to distract me from being productive right now anyway, so I don’t view it as a bad thing.
Some great tips for clearing on your closet. I recently purged my closet and I can attest that asking yourself these questions actually does work. It’s important to ask them to yourself when you’re shopping/in the fitting room too, in order to avoid buying things that don’t serve you to begin with!
Make & Model Brushed Hacci Lounge Pants: This was my lone purchase from the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale (which I was kind of disappointed with to be honest). Anyway these pants are SUPER comfy but they wash horribly – they pill like crazy. Definitely not worth the $35 CAD I paid for them (no way they’re worth $61 CAD).
Laura Mercier Translucent Loose Setting Powder: I’m absolutely in LOVE with this setting powder. It’s the only one I’ve tried that doesn’t settle into my pores AND keeps me matte throughout the day. Wish I had tried this sooner!
sugarfina Ice Cream Cone Gummies: Who in their right mind would spend $9 CAD on a tiny box of candies? I would! I may have acquired a dangerous and expensive addiction – they’re so yummy! But if you don’t feel like forking over the cash to try them yourself, keep an eye on my blog for my long overdue giveaway that will include a box of sugarfina sweets (in addition to some other fantastic things!) #yum
Madewell Fleet Jacket: I spotted this jacket at the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale, and it’s amazing. But there’s no way I can justify the price for a cotton jacket, even on sale. So the hunt for the perfect utility jacket continues…
Bryon Plaid Throw: Okay, I know it’s still August but I want this now! It makes me want to curl up on the couch with a good book and a mug of hot chocolate!
Fossil Kinley Small Crossbody: I’ve got an urge to buy a new purse for Fall – and I’m liking the look of this one. Sidenote – when did Fossil handbags become so expensive? Or have they always been?
