link love

Some odd part of me really wants to try this cruelty free and vegan cheese curd lip balm or maybe the pizza version.

I ordered this rug for our apartment when we first moved in and it has been a GODSEND. Mud and water doesn't stand a chance with this at the door.

Duke University is leading a study about Cuvier's beaked whales and how they are the deepest diving mammal, even defying mammalian physiology!

I've gotten Kyle started on the cruelty free train...he called from Target after the detergent we typically get (Ecos) was out of stock. He said he couldn't find any available from the list he pulled up, so I directed him to Seventh Generation. Here's a list of some cruelty free and vegan laundry products!

Jess has an amazing pasta recipe over on Writing in Red Lipstick!

I've always loved Stay Home Club, but I'm really liking this beanie.

Instagram confirmed a bug that has altered follower counts.

date night // our anniversary dinner

Yesterday was Kyle and my's one year anniversary! We've gone through one season of minor league baseball, moving in together, and so much more. He surprised me with a wonderful dinner at Maggiano's! They're pretty well known for their eat one tonight, take one home for tomorrow pasta dinners and just amazing food in general. I tried for days to get him to tell me where we were going, but to no avail so this was a lovely little surprise.

We had a great server who set up our dessert with a cute little heart and candle for our anniversary. The butter cake was amazing. 

Afterward, we recreated our first Valentine's date by going to The Answer, which is my favorite brewpub in Richmond both because of their amazing Vietnamese food and their selection of beer. (And it's one of the top rated breweries in the nation on Untapped.) I'm a big sour/gose fan, and their Imperial 3 Scoops: Passionfruit, Mango, Peach is my all time favorite.

It was a great night and was just what we needed!

marshall's mini cruelty free haul

I stopped at Marshall's one day after work to pick up another dog bed for Tucker and perused the cosmetics aisle for a bit. Stores like Marshall's can have some really awesome finds, but you have to be careful and make sure the beauty products haven't been opened or swatched (because ew). I lucked out and picked up this Too Faced Melted Latex liquid lipstick in Hopeless Romantic for $5.99 and a Pacifica Cactus Revive Milk to Foam Face Wash for $4.99.
This lipstick is a gorgeous color and from how it performed on my arm, it has staying power. I had to use a lip color remover* to get it off completely after smearing it all over the place. It'll be a nice muted color for the office. I think the Latex line might be phasing out and the cleanser is discontinued, so snag the lipstick while you can!

Found anything good lately? ♥

review // stasher silicone storage bags

I've been trying to use less plastic in every day life and it's astounding how prevalent plastic is in almost everything. Luckily, I have a pretty awesome friend in Jess, who gave me a set of Stasher Bags for Christmas.

Stasher bags are silicone, non-porous and BPA free. They seal really well and are pliable and easy to use. Pictured is the Jade Snack and a Jade Sandwich came in the two pack as well! They were also packaged only in cardboard, which I recycled.

You can use these for soooo many things. I use them for food, obviously, but you can use them for airtight, water resistent protection for your phone or makeup as well! They're freezer and microwave and dishwasher safe, and you can even use them for sous vide cooking.

If you're looking to start eliminating plastic, definitely check out Stasher bags!
