Hi, friends!

Happy, happy, happy Friday to you!

Here’s another edition of What I’m Loving Lately for your viewing pleasure. Feel free to share what you’re loving lately in the comment section. I love hearing what cool things you guys find!

Cuyana Travel Case Set

The nice folks from Cuyana recently sent me a couple of items to review on CNC: A beautiful leather tote and travel case set, which I am totally and utterly obsessed with. I love the contrasting colors and overall look of the cases. They are so pretty!

I’ve had the same makeup bag since 2010 so, as you can imagine, it was getting pretty nasty. I washed it a ton of times over the years, but it finally started to rip at the seams, so having this gorgeous travel case set is a serious upgrade! And, as dorky as it might sound, I feel so grown up and fancy with it! Haha!

I also love that the set comes with two travel cases. The larger one fits my bigger beauty products (i.e. deodorant, face wash, hair serum) and the smaller one is perfect for make-up and items that I use daily. I took them to New Hampshire this past weekend, and they held all of my stuff and kept everything nice and neat. I am a big fan!

I’ve always liked popcorn, but it’s not something I usually crave or eat. However, I’ve been loving it lately. And it’s one of those foods that once I start eating it, I CAN’T STOP. I want ALL THE POPCORN!!

J.Crew Fall Collection

I’m totally digging the new fall collection from J.Crew. I want to buy everything! Some favorites: Crinkle Plaid Scarf, Side-Zip Striped Tee, Zip Tunic Sweatshirt, Toothpick Jean in gray dove, and Barbour Convoy Jacket (<— love the hood). FYI: You can save 25% with the code SHOPTIME (valid through 9/8/14).


I read about Priv in US Weekly and it seems so cool. I haven’t used it yet, but I totally would in a heartbeat! It’s a 24/7 service that sends a beauty professional right to your house within an hour for a blowout, manicure, pedicure, massage, or yoga session. HOW AWESOME IS THAT!?! I want to try it so bad. Perhaps for the next special occasion in my life?

Reebok Z Goddess Glitch Sneakers

I love these new kicks from my friends at Reebok! Obviously, they are colorful, cool, and stylish (I rock them when I do errands), but they’re also great, light-weight running shoes too.

These sneakers are seriously comfortable with a low-cut fit for easy, natural movement, and they’re stable and cushion-y, so they’re supportive too. Basically, they’re the best of both worlds! FYI: They also come in teal!

Mustard on salads

I use mustard just like I would dressing on my salads, and it’s my favorite thing ever. I’ve also tried all different kinds””yellow, spicy, honey, wasabi, horseradish and now we have a crazy amount of mustard in our fridge now! Haha!

Questions of the Day

What are you loving lately?

Popcorn: Once you start, you can’t stop?

Do you put anything ‘unusual’ on your salads? 



  1. Whole Foods Hingham and Weymouth carry the Quinn brand (local to MA) popcorn in the bag(already popped)…the Kale flavor is good, but the chipotle and cheddar is UNREAL! Sadly, I have to limit my purchases because I go through the bag in a sitting!

  2. I LOVE POPCORN! I bought an air popper at kohls last year on sale and it was the best purchase i ever made! It was only $15! We use it almost every night and the popcorn kernels are so cheap at stop and shop and a bag lasts forever!!! I love popcorn with a sprinkle of parmesan cheese on it! Soooo good!!!

  3. I’ve been addicted to popcorn lately too! I really like to get unbuttered microwave popcorn and season my own with a mixture of dairy free butter, paprika, garlic powder and salt. Yum yum yum!
