Hi everyone and happy Friday! I hope you’ve been enjoying the fact that I’ve been a little bit more present on here lately! Finally things have slowed down a bit for me and I’ve been able to give my beloved blog the time and energy it deserves. A goal of mine is to start posting a “Friday Favorites” every Friday that’ll include some of my favorite beauty products, clothing items, travel accessories and more!
Another goal of mine is to answer any personal questions you may have for me so we can get to know one another a little better so PLEASE! leave any questions you may have in the comments below and I will answer them in a separate post!
Now, on to my Friday Faves!
Both the Fresh Sugar Tinted Lip Treatment and the Tarteist Quick Dry Matte Lip Paint were given to me as gifts for my birthday last month and I fell in love! The Fresh Lip Treatment is great because it has SPF, gives you a nice nude lip color (I use the color Honey), and is so moisturizing. The Tarte Lip Paint in the color Bestie is the perfect nude for Fall. It is a matte lip color but isn’t drying like most. It also looks great in photos.
I’ve been waking up extra early each morning to go to the gym and my face has been so puffy. I’m usually in a hurry, but what I’ve found to be incredibly helpful and refreshing is using these Tovolo Ice Cube Molds. I mix a little water and witch hazel in the mold and let freeze over night so that in the morning, the ice decreases my puffiness and the witch hazel acts as a toner. I swear by this trick. I’ve also been using these Garnier SkinActive Moisture Bomb The Super Hydrating Sheet Masks ever since my friend and celebrity esthetician Shani Darden recommended them. These are perfect for those of you with dry skin like me or if you just need that added moisture. I love using these while traveling since my face always tends to dry out and they’re easy to pack. I also received these Peter Thomas Roth samples that I’ve been loving. I try a new one almost every day and my skin is glowing.
Right now I’m currently obsessing over this emerald green dress that I found on a whim at H&M while I was rushing around town with a girlfriend of mine. The great thing about it is that you can dress it up or down and the color works for every season. I also think it would make a great wedding guest dress. And now that Fall is right around the corner, it’s blazer season! We are still seeing Spring trends on Fall designs and I’m loving it! I found this gorgeous embroidered Zara blazer (seen on fellow blogger Emily Luciano) and thought it would be a great transition piece. I also fell in love with this chic and sassy blazer dress. I think it would look so cute with some thigh-high black boots.
I have a few trips coming up and really needed a new makeup bag/travel set and found this fab Cuyana set. The larger bag is great for toiletries while the smaller one is perfect for makeup. They come in a few other colors and there is also a customize option so that you can make it 100% yours.
I truly hope you love these Friday Favorites as much as I do! And again, feel free to leave any personal questions for me or some of your personal favorites in the comments below!
