Monday Mornings, Volume 08.

Monday Mornings are a time that I absolutely treasure. It’s a time where I sit down for a moment of solitude before the hustle and the bustle of the week commences. I reflect, research, plan, and embrace. Keep reading to find this week’s best articles around the web, shopping links, and more to get your week started off right!

Start your week off right with a list of readings, musings, shopping, + more. A weekly roundup to inspire, motivate, and curate.

Y’all, there really needs to be a day in between Sunday and Monday. Am I right?! As always I’m ready to get to a fresh new workweek, but an extra day of rest really wouldn’t hurt either. Somehow this weekend I told myself I would finally finish all of the laundry and buy groceries, and yet neither of these things happened. Whoops! Well, I digress, it’s time for another Monday Morning’s post!

Happy Friday friends! How in the heck did that come so fast?! I’ve been going a little wild lately when it comes to online shopping, er rather shopping in general. Although my bank account might not like me too much, I’m excited to share a bunch of new goodies with you all! I find myself in an outfit rut so often, sometimes a little purge and shopping spree is just what the doctor ordered.

These half moon hoops are my new favorite go-to accessory, especially because they go with so many looks. Gold is the most versatile thing ever! Keep reading to find lots of plus-size top options similar to this cute embroidered number.

My Favorite Aveda Products Review

It’s time to talk about one of my favorite beauty brands; Aveda!

I cover a lot of brands here on the LCC, but this one is extra special to me. Ever since my mom introduced me to makeup and hair products, Aveda was what I turned to. My mom has been going to the same wonderful hairdresser since she was in her 30’s, so once I started worrying about my looks, she took me straight to her… And we’ve both been happy there ever since! (Love you Robin!) Our hairdresser is a loyal Aveda salon and stylist, so you could probably say I’ve tried a lot of the brand’s products. Here’s what I thought.

If you haven’t heard of the brand, Aveda is an environmentally compassionate company who truly cares about what goes into their products. They actually remind me a lot of Beautycounter. Did you read my review on their products? Anyway, the founder of Aveda stated this on their website, which really spoke to me about who they are as a company, “Our mission at Aveda is to care for the world we live in, from the products we make to the ways in which we give back to the society.”

Do you remember this top?
