My Latest Snag: Rose Inc Beauty Products.
I am in the midst of using a bunch of new, heavily-hyped beauty products and will share full thoughts after thoroughly testing, but did want to mention that I’ve been hearing so much about Rose Inc beauty products, founded by Rosie Huntington-Whitely. Their Luminous Tinted Serum was getting a ton of buzz but I’ve heard mixed reviews the more I’ve read? (Has anyone here tried?) I love the concept of combining skincare with coverage, but I’m iffy given some of the more recent reception. That said, I was intrigued by a lot of positive buzz around their Brow Renew: Tinted Brow Gel and Lip Sculpt (lip crayon), so I ordered this little mini set with both of those products as well as a lip/cheek tint, on sale already but with an extra 20% off and free shipping if you use code HELLO20. Will report back but wanted to share in case you want to jump on the deal, too.

Weekend Musings: To Go Easy.
Around me the trees stir in their leaves and call out, “Stay awhile.”
The light flows from their branches.
And they call again, “It’s simple,” they say,
“and you too have come into the world to do this, to go easy.”
Am I a broken record or what? But Oliver’s persistence on this matter resonates. Go easy, laissez le temps roulez, relax the grip. Whenever Mr. Magpie and I listen to guided meditations, we are always astonished by the instruction: “Relax the tongue from the top of your mouth. Roll your shoulders back.” What?! Have I really been sitting here for days on end with my tongue anxiously jammed against the roof of my mouth? My shoulders at my ears? My lungs half-filled? My sister and I joke that sometimes we realize our faces are nearly pressed to our keyboards — drawn downward, tense, and focused.
Goodbye to all that: taking a minute this morning to check in and dispense of that stiffness.
+Adore this fun top.
+A white linen blazer is a major power move and I fully support it.
+Would be chic with this statement scarf (on sale).
+Have you ever shopped at Farfetch? It’s essentially one website where you can shop tons of tiny boutiques (most of them in Europe). You can occasionally find some really good deals there, though caveat emptor: shipping can be expensive given that most of these shops are abroad. (Totally justified, especially since many of these are tiny shops!) But consider this Borgo de Nor (40% off), this demure MacGraw (40% off), this just-released Ulla (20% off!), and this BANANAS Carolina Herrera (50% off — HELLO, milestone birthday dress?!)
+Love these canvas totes with shadow lettering personalization.
+These linen buckle flats are BEYOND chic – cannot believe the price.
+She’s giving Cecilie Bahnsen vibes for under $50.
+Inexpensive rash guard for a little one in great colors.
+This quilted coat is just so fun.
+Cute stationery for a little one.
+Pretty scalloped tile-print midi skirt.
+Oh my gosh I absolutely love this reversible two-piece.
+Alemais continues to slay this season — love this dress.
+Lusting after these for my summer tablescapes.
