Coffee Date: Volume 5 | Q+A

top / similar denim

Happy Friday! It's safe to say I'm happy the weekend is here. At the moment, I'm on the second and final day of a big work event, and though though this event is a very rewarding experience, it'll be nice to take a deep breath this evening. I'm also happy to be back with the fifth edition of Coffee Date, chatting about some of my recent purchases from the #NSALE as well as this fun Q+A that I first saw on Biana's blog. I always love getting to know my favorite bloggers a little better - so here's to answering the Only One Q + A.

wear one outfit | I just can't even answer this one.

carry one handbag | the LV Neverfull. I splurged on a Neverfull MM the last time I was in New York, and it is seriously the best bag ever. I was worried I would have buyer's remorse, but not once have I regretted the purchase.

use one skincare product | Vitamin A. I've realized that moisturizer with Vitamin A is the best thing for my skin, especially in the summer months. itCosmetics Confidence in a Cream is also an awesome moisturizer that doesn't focus on Vitamin A but does have retinyl in it, making it a great option (and what I'm wearing right now!).

wear one scent | Dolce & Gabana The One. My grandmother gave this scent to me probably 5 Christmases ago and it's been my go-to ever since.

indulge in one spa treatment | massage, massage, massage. That's my go-to and I've found a great therapist in Wilmington. I've struggled with back problems since I was in high school, and massage has been both a relaxation method and a pain relief. 

apply one lipstick color | Benefit Lollitint - with a moisturizing lip balm underneath!

order one drink | a great glass of pinot grigio

pick one flower | peonies. They are seriously so beautiful. But hydrangeas tie for a close second.

apply one mascara | I honestly prefer lash extensions over mascara these days, but I do like MAC's False Lashes.

do one workout | Pure Barre! Barre is a workout that I don't always look forward to but love doing once I get there. After all, the hardest part of workout out is getting to the gym. Check out why I barre here

read one author | this is a tough one. I have a lot of favorites, but I love relaxing with a good beach read, so Elin Hilderbrand is my girl. I'm taking this one on my trip next week.

live by one quote | "Wherever you are, be all there." Jim Elliot

It's also safe to say I've already done some damage in the Nordstrom sale. My purchases so far:
  • This adorable top - if it wasn't 90 degrees outside I would've already worn it. It's sold out already but I'm hoping it'll be restocked soon.
  • This oversized sweater - seriously so cozy. I'm nowhere near ready for summer to be over but I'm happy I'll have this to wrap up in when the weather cools down.
  • This anorak jacket - I've wanted one of these for my fall wardrobe for awhile, so I'm excited to break this one out this fall.
  • This sweater for my mom - she loves mine so I snagged one for her as well. 
  • I also ended up with these shoes - they are not part of the sale, but I've been looking for a staple pair of block heels for my fall and winter wardrobe for work, and these are perfect. 
Cheers to Friday + the weekend! Make it a wonderful one!
