Happy Friday everyone. I hope you all had a fantastic week! I am just glad this week is coming to an end… It has been one of the most stressful weeks for me in a long long long time. So many reasons, but I wont get into it. Just celebrating Friday because it feels like it washes away the bad taste of the week. :) HOORAYYYY Friday!
This is a look I have been sporting all week long really, just switching it up a little bit here and there. I have been in a rush all week so I basically just keep going super simple on the eyes and focus on the skin. Looks like I forgot to tightline. I hate seeing my skin under my lashes. It is a personal pet peeve of mine.
I always get questions about my earrings so I am going to go ahead and address them. My friend went through a jewelry-making phase and she posted her pieces on Facebook. She lives far away from me now but I scooped up a bunch of them because they were great. The ones I am wearing in these pictures are awesome. They consist of 3 dangly diamond shape metal pieces and they all twirl independently. I wish she was making more! I would totally keep buying them.
This is one of the rare occasions that I winged out my liner. Lately I just haven’t been digging winged liner.

And now for some good ole Instagram pics.
So, Bath and Body Works just recently had a 2 for $20 candle sale and OF COURSE I got 2 Leaves candles. I also got some others that I have never tried before: Marshmallow Fireside, Pumpkin Caramel Latte, Bonfire Maplewood, and Pumpkin Cupcake. These arrived on my doorstep today and I sniffed them all and they are ALLLL wonderful. I hate buying blind… or in this case without smelling them first, but my instinct didn’t point me in the wrong direction. LOVE them all.
A while back there was a contest on the Fresh Facebook page and the grand prize was their entire set of balms. I came in runner up but I did score the Coral one. I got this in the mail a while back but I never showed it to you guys. Crazy summer… I am enjoying it, and hope to get a review up soon? Or has that window passed? Let me know if you want a review.
Now for SHOES! I was shopping in my Local NEX (Navy Exchange) and I ran up on THESE BAD BOYS! OMG I adore Michael Kors anything and I am totally obsessed with wedges. These really need to be mine. I was focusing on showing some restraint so I passed these up but if I go back this weekend and this pair is still there, these will be mine.
The next shoe picture is my most worn shoes of the summer. You can’t tell it from the picture but the beads actually shine irridescent colors. They go great with maxi dresses as well as just shorts or jeans. I love them because they are totally flip flops but I can wear them to work and no one will say anything! SCORE! Oh yeah, and I got these from Target–total bargain buy!
Recently got a bunch of goodies from Jurlique. I have never tried their skincare before but I am excited to try it out. I have had several hand creams over the last year or two and I enjoyed them a great deal! Keep your eyes out for reviews on these.
Two scents I have been wearing all week are Prada Candy and Lisa Hoffman Beauty Tunisian Neroli. I adore them. They are completely opposite form each other but I have been layering them together and I totally thing it is my SIGNATURE scent!
3 current favorite foundations: Neutrogena Healthy Skin, Peach Girl BB Cream, and Too Faced BB Cream in Nude Glow. I only have a sample of the Too Faced one but I am sure I will be getting the full size. I am getting paler though so I don’t wanna invest in a full size of the darker shade.
The next picture is a Perfect Margarita from LongHorn Steakhouse. BEST ALCOHOLIC BEVERAGE OF ALL TIME! I don’t like Margaritas (I know, I know… shoot me now) but these are PERFECTION. I got it the first time on recommendation on Facebook because I “checked in” and my friend wrote me immediately to tell me to try it. I did and it has been love ever since. Don’t hesitate to try it! SERIOUSLY!
That is it folks! I am sure that I will be a crazy posting lady this weekend. I have a lot to catch up on as far as reviews go so I am liable to do 4-10 this weekend. :) Depends on how insane things get here. Hope you all have a lovely weekend and take care!
