I MOVED! > love, minna

I have an exciting announcement for you all! I have recently switched over the name of my blog from "Minna May Blog" to "Love, Minna". I just wanted to seperate my personal blog from my design brand, so that I can share more with you guys! I want to share my food & travel adventures, photography, and more beauty & fashion posts! Love, Minna will be more of a lifestyle blog, sharing a mix of everything. Thank you for joining me on this journey! I've been blogging on and off since 2009, and it's always been such a wonderful way for me to share my story with you all. I think this will be my third time changing my blog name haha, but change is good! I'm so excited!  —  Minna

my current makeup faves

Here are some of my favorite makeup products at the moment! What are your current favorites?

1. MAC Mineralized Blush in the shade "Azalea in the Afternoon" : I don't think this blush is sold anymore which is a shame! I love this blush because it doubles as a highlighter. It adds a nice pink glow.

2. Nars Highlighter in "Albatross" : Even though the MAC blush adds some highlight, I like to double up on highlighter! I love this one by nars because it adds a warmer, more sun-kissed glow.

3. Nars Velvet Matte Skin Tint in the shade "Finland" : I just started using the new Nars skin tint, and so far I am loving it! It definitely keeps my skin matte throughout the day.

4. Nars Radiant Creamy Concealer in the shades "Custard" and "Chantilly" : These have been my holy grail concealers for the past few years, and I love them. When I breakout, I get noticeable acne scars, and these help to cover them up wonderfully! I have two shades because they don't have the right shade for me, so I mix the two to get the perfect match.

less is more

I think it's very normal to always want more in life and to dream of something bigger. It's not a bad thing at all! Sometimes it's good to find happiness in the little things in life and take a second to appreciate the simple stuff.   — Minna

instagram faves

Currently i'm loving all things calm and neutral. Most likely due to all the rain and cloudy weather we've been getting here in Seattle... Spring where are you!?   — Minna

happy new year!

2016 is here! Hope everyone had a fun and safe celebration! One of my new years resolutions is to blog more, and to be consistent. I started a new job several months ago, so that's been keeping me busy, which explains why my posts have seized to exist. Thank you all for your continued support, and I hope you can follow along as I share more about my life and things I like! Cheers to the new year.   — Minna

summer daze

Summer is in full swing, and it couldn't be hotter! I am literally melting in my little apartment... wishing I had some AC. These past few weeks, i've been up to my eyeballs with work, but thankful to find time for little adventures. My favorite summer activity so far has been berry-picking! The other day I was able to score a big bowl of fresh raspberries. Also, I finally was able to go to the new Chick-Fil-A that opened up in Bellevue. I've always loved that place when I lived on the eastcoast, so it's nice to have it here! It's crazy how busy it gets though... The drive-thru line wraps all the way around the street, causing traffic for incoming cars! Sad, sad... I hope all the hype dies down soon so I can go there regularly! Anyway, it's been nice going out and enjoying the summer days... I can't wait to go on more mini adventures.

What has been your favorite summer activity?  — Minna

fun times in san fran

I am finally back home from San Francisco! It was such a fun trip! I got to explore the city and go to AT&T Park to watch the SF Giants vs. LA Dodgers. It was such a beautiful day out to watch the game and enjoy the view of the water. It is such a nice stadium! You could see that there were people on boats waiting for a home run to come their way... There was also a giant Coca Cola sculpture that doubled as a giant slide! I really wanted to go on it but I think it was only for kids, haha.  — Minna

It's a beautiful morning here in San Francisco, and I am taking the time to appreciate all the special moments in life. Sometimes the best memories are the ones that are unexpected...

I am flying back to Seattle this Saturday, and i'm actually pretty excited to go back! I have a lot of cool projects that i'm working on now, and I can't wait to share them with you all! — Minna
