Friday Favorites

Happy Friday, everyone!! I'm happy that it's almost the weekend, but this has also been a really good week at home (very happy and productive!). I've been trying out some new products over the last couple of weeks that I really love, so I figured it was time for a new "Friday Favorites" post. Let me know if you have a new favorite product in the comments section!


Let's start with makeup first! I have been loving this new foundation from It Cosmetics. It's technically not a powder (it has a cream consistency), and it's infused with full coverage pigments and SPF 50+ UVA/UVB sunscreen. I know it's technically still winter, but this foundation will be brilliant in the spring and summer months when you want a little more coverage and more SPF! Each compact also comes with a sponge, so it's easy to throw in your purse and touch up your makeup on the go. I have been wearing the shade "medium" to match my skin after getting some sun last week in Mexico. It also stays matte and lasts all day long!! 


Some other makeup products that I've been loving (you may have seen these on my snapchat!) are from the First Aid Beauty line: these face wipes and this priming moisturizer. I love how they're both "tropical" themed - I took both of them to Mexico last week and both products are almost empty now!

Let's talk about the caffeine face wipes: I have been using them every morning when I wake up before I apply my makeup, and they work WONDERS for tired skin. The wipes remove excess oil, dirt, and any makeup leftover from washing your face the night before, and they contain caffeine from matcha green tea to literally revive your skin. They truly work. I am obsessed. 

 I also really like this coconut smoothie face primer because, um, doesn't it just sound awesome?!? It's a moisturizer and primer all in one. It feels lightweight, absorbs quickly and lasts all day. It makes your skin look glowy and plump. I have been using it every morning, with and without makeup.  


Alright this next one is my favorite but maybe I'm just a nerd :) I have been looking for a professional steamer for a while and after reading lots of reviews I finally ordered this pink one from Amazon (if you don't like pink, it also comes in other colors!!). I am constantly getting new clothes in and needing to steam them for photos, so this thing is AMAZING. It has a built-in hanging rack for your clothes and holds enough water for 1.5 hours of steaming! I bought the plastic steam head and not the metal one, because the reviews said the metal one gets really hot. I will never use an ironing board ever again. *Hands up emoji*

(Also if you're in the market for a portable steamer, my friend Krista got me this one and it's also amazing - I bring it on every trip!)

 

Okay next up, Tory Burch has really been killin' it with her spring line this year. I have bought several things from her line but these are two of my favorites! This crossbody bag is the perfect size and also the perfect neutral: it has two zippered compartments with plenty of room for my phone, keys, lipstick, etc. I wore it in this blog post if you want to see the size on my body. I'm head over heels in love with the design/shape and pretty much everything about it.

Secondly, these sandals. They're SO fun and fresh for spring! When you have them on, you can't tell that the bottoms are pink, and the pink/red logo really stands out. I wore them with jeans shorts and with an all white outfit in Mexico! 


And finalllllyyyyy, one of my favorite jewelry retailers is having their huge Semi-Annual Sale! These tassel earrings were my absolute favorite purchase last year, and they're marked down to $22 right now (plus they have a ton of other great markdowns). See everything on sale here.  

I'd love to hear your favorites from this week! Happy Friday everyone!
xoxo

  8. I'm in the market for a new steamer - mine runs out of water after each garment, so 1.5 hours would be incredible! Love the pink too.

  12. I got the Mary Kay Lash Intensity mascara for a birthday present and started using it this week. It is AMAZING!! Gives super long lashes with volume! Unfortunately I ended up with pink eye last night so now I need to throw it away! (Crying emoji) But it's so good I need to find a way to order it again!

  24. I love how neatly displayed your makeup is and that it is so minimalistic too! I feel like a hoard so much stuff and it is difficult to display it in a way that doesn't make my vanity look over-cluttered.
