5 In Random

Alyson’s Obsessions // April 2017

Hey ladies! I’m back, bringing you again my totally random things I’m loving this month!

Big Little Lies
Nope, I honestly never read the book and I didn’t initially start watching this seven ep miniseries but soon everyone was talking, and FOMO took hold. I binge watched HBO’s Big Little Lies — with a killer cast! — last week and it’s SO good. Grab a hot cup or tea or glass of wine, a comfy blanket and prepare to stay up late because you won’t be able to quit. It’s that good.
Glossier lip gloss

Glossier lip gloss
The highly coveted beauty brand developed by beauty editors keeps hitting home runs (at least so I heard!) so I finally went for it, ordering the “brow boy” and this brand-new lip gloss. While I like brow boy — I think my bows are between colors (for the record: everyone else I know is obsessed), however this lip gloss delivers the perfect shine, without that gross sticky feeling from so many others. Add a great price point, a hydrating feel and good ingredients… and this is a beauty homerun.

For Sarah // Cat & Jack cold-shoulder blouse
It’s fun to see so many stores embracing stylish looks for little ones, except when they’re too showy. This cold-shoulder blouse from Target’s brand, Cat & Jack, is a home run. It’s $12.99, adorable & not revealing at all… i.e. perfect for a little lady!

Perfect sun-drenched weather
I absolutely love where we live…. the running (truthful) joke is that we live where people vacation. And, this time of year is the best! Palm Beaches can get steamy hot in the summer, however the March/April timezone is full of the most gorgeous sunny weather… seriously: check out a flight and come visit ASAP! One perk if you decide to wait: the summer has the most incredible specials at area restaurants and hotels who miss the folks who flock north to the Hamptons and elsewhere. What to pack? Check out my guest post with Discover Palm Beaches about what you should bring.

Super fun earrings 

Ladies, it’s time to embrace the bold earring trend! I’ve been giving my bold necklaces a break in exchange for earrings that no joke will bring a smile to your face. They’re totally perfect for all those off-the-shoulder and cold-shoulder dresses and so many are lighter weight (no fear of weighing down those lobes.. lol, an actual worry of mine!).

    I wasn’t sure if I’d relate the Big Little Lies when I first started watching the series but it totally pulled me in. I think my love for Resse’s Witherspoon’s outfits is what kept me watching and I ended up loving it.

    That top for Sarah is the cutest – it makes me wish Lauren could still wear little girls clothes! Totally with you on the bold earring trend too – I’ve been wearing my tassel drops almost every day.
