November / the year's last, loveliest smile

Thursday, November 30

Priya the Blog, Nashville lifestyle blog, November 2017
+ Life | I know that, as a general rule, time just flies, but I sat down to write this post and could not BELIEVE November was over. Where did the month go?? Upon further investigation (looked in my planner) I realized I had two whirlwind long weekend trips (Britney in Vegas & NY marathon / Thanksgiving), and in between that, two crazy busy weeks at work. So there we go. Case closed.


+ In My Cart | Stay tuned for how epically I did NOT stick to a budget. Cyber Monday amiright!?
In Vegas I bought Spanx out of necessity & a couple new bralettes (velvet / seamless) (also out of necessity)
I also ordered these Britney Spears leggings as I left Vegas (seriously, and no regrets!)
In a pre-office-holiday-party-panic last week I ordered this top, this jumpsuit, this midi dress, this swing dress, and these pants ALL VELVET and all Old Navy. I'll keep you posted on what I decide to keep.
Finally, my Cyber Monday purchases! This calf hair clutch from Madewell, that I've wanted foreverr, and three blouses from J.Crew Factory: pink bell sleeved, printed bell sleeve, and a VERY cute purple pleated blouse that is sold out. All linked above!
On My Face | Aside from my incred BoxyCharm, I wanted to spotlight some e.l.f products I've been loving:
Mad for Matte palette- a serious blank space in my collection was non-neutral mattes. Ta-dah!
HD Lifting Concealer- YouTube told me this was a perfect affordable concealer and it IS!
Blush & Bronzer duo- perfect for a subtle contour on the go! I have Turks & Caicos.
Slightly cheating because I've ordered these but haven't tried them yet: Tinted Lip Oil (can't WAIT to try this) Crease Brush (supposed to be great for small eyelids!) Lip Exfoliator (this is genius.)

+ In my Earbuds | Sam Smith is still heartbroken and crooning in his sophomore album The Thrill of it All. I was so excited for this release! Favorite tracks so far: Say it First, Baby, You Make Me Crazy. 
On that note, I could really use some new music recs. Let's connect on Spotify!

+ On my TV | I wish I had more to tell you. I blazed through Stranger Things season two, and while I'm JUST as obsessed with the cast, the 2nd season really didn't hold my attention like the first one.

+ In my Nashville | Nothing exciting here either! I did go to Far East the other night, so there's a vouch for very solid pho. After a carb-laden Thanksgiving the first thing I ate in town was half a Lucayan salad from Calypso Cafe which never disappoints! OH I've now been to Cafe Roze twice, and boy is it cute (I'm about to plan a blog shoot around it, for real.) Most recently I had steak frites and an Aperol Spritz, A+!
