has been exhausting. the past few weeks have been, actually. we’ve reached the halfway point, so thankfully that means jeff will be home in two short weeks. (please god let them be short) for some reason when jeff is gone, i cannot for the life of me sleep all the way through during the night. 3, 4, 5 o’clock wake ups are always guaranteed, and it’s starting to get old. another annoying thing? i’ve had daily headaches for about two months now and nothing gets rid of them. so i’ve got to make an appointment to get my eyes checked next week because i’ve tried everything else. also i’m blind when i drive at night so i guess it’s time i do something about that.
sigh sigh sigh. life is weird when the person you’ve been living with for a few months just up and leaves for 30 days. it sort of feels like the worst kind of breakup. i’ve never wanted it to be mid august so badly before.
i used to hate august because the worst things always happened in that month. and a little part of me still worries a bit when i hear that it’s coming, but i’ve only got two days to become a little bit braver than i was last year and hope that august doesn’t wear me down. but august means jeffrey and he means the world.
Our favorite go-to beauty tip is adding a bold lip color. We are partial to a quirky coral but could never find one that was just right, so we called in an expert to help us make our own! This season we have collaborated with Poppy King to make our dream lip color: a bit of red with a hint of coral. It’s the perfect shade of Poppy. Worn here by a few of our women’s designers—you can see it’s a color that everyone can agree on!
