Tag Archives: BB cream

Happy Friday! As exhausted as I am, this week has just flown by! I feel like all of November is going to be like that. I’m definitely getting ready for snuggle season and this whole “falling back” we insist on doing has me a little out of whack. I need lists on lists on organization to get me through the holidays.

Lately on The CaroLøve:

Tomorrow I’ll be working my little booth at the St. John’s Holly Harvest Festival, selling hard copies of the prints in my Etsy shop! I’m now also offering custom digital prints with your favorite quotes, song lyrics, etc. AND

ANNNNND…

I don’t know why it took me so long but I finally have a graphic t shop on Zazzle. I’ve wanted to design my own shirts since… forever! (A huge thank you to my sorority sisters for letting me design shirts for the house!) I have a few designs up now but I’m in major brainstorming mode for Christmas. You can find my designs right on the Shop page of my blog! Let me know if there’s anything you’d like to see for the holidays and beyond.

J. Crew is having a pretty awesome sale: 25% off full-price items including that new new with code GETSHOPPING.

Ok- so 2 weeks trying a new BB cream and here’s what I have to say about Holika Holika Pore Clearing Petit BB Cream with Tea Tree Oil and Sebum Control Powder: It’s a good thing I’m fair because this stuff is LIGHT. Also, it smells great and the coverage is amazing but, honestly, it’s not doing a thing for my skin. I had high hopes and was excited to try it, but I’ll be going back to my fave Neutrogena Healthy Skin Enhancer for everyday.

For the holidays, I’m putting together a gift guide of entirely women-owned small businesses. If you’d like to be included, shoot me an email {thecarolove@gmail.com}! There is no charge to you, as I just want to support small biz and women biz! I do already have certain vendors and won’t do repeat companies, but that is just about the only stipulation! For those of you who want to shop, let me know what kind of guides you’d like to see!

Have a great weekend!

A few days late but here I am. This past weekend was so amazing and I always feel inspired when I get home from the Jersey Shore. The weather was unusually perfect- no flooding or high winds- so we really enjoyed Chowderfest to the fullest. While we didn’t actually do as much shopping damage as usual (not enough room in the car, tbh) I really had fun checking out the style of the beach this year.

If you’ve never been to the Jersey Shore, chances are that idiot show from nearly a decade ago has warped your opinion. Pro tip: none of those people actually lived down the shore. I was actually really taken aback this year with how stunning the LBI locals were: sun kissed, athletic, effortlessly gorgeous. As for the clothes on the island, a lot of what I gravitate towards: distressed, oversized, comfy without compromising style. A bit of beach bum meets boho and I loved it. Grab me something soft and add a ruffle, bow, or embellishment and I’m there!

Speaking of which… this Cotton Emporium Ruffle Hem Knit T-Shirt Dress is everything. I would stick it with booties and a leather jacket (as I would with pretty much anything this time of year.)

I read a lot of blogs from the UK and I’m usually sad that I can’t purchase their recommendations but I found AC Clean Up Mild BB Cushion on Amazon and I’m thrilled! Not only does it have an SPF 50 (50!!) but there’s tea tree oil in it. Totally worth a try and for under $20, if I don’t love it it’s no harm no foul!

I’ve been checking out vampy lip colors for the season. Currently crushing on MAC Nude Lipstick in Antique Velvet.

This Halogen Ruffle Cold Shoulder Sweatshirt combines three of my favorite things: grey, cold shoulder, ruffle.

I absolutely love my cape this time of year. Throw it on on the way to work, snuggle in it if I get to cold in the office, throw it in my bag on my way home when it’s too hot. The colors in this Pashmina Wrap has the perfect colors for the season too!

Apparently statement necklaces are kind of on their way out? I refuse to a) believe it b) give mine up. This behemoth is the kind of thing I’d throw on with a simple work outfit to jazz it up.

File this under “things I absolutely don’t need” but how cute is this Llama Coin Purse? Fun fact: I wanted a llama so bad when I was younger. My Gramma Dee actually got me a charm bracelet one year that said “llama” on it.

This is silly but I took a quiz to see what kind of crystal resonates with me. I shouldn’t be surprised- it’s rainbow quartz. I love the raw look of these Nakibirango London Titanium Aura Astral Earrings.

What are you loving and craving this October?
