We made it to Friday stylish sweets!!
It’s almost like a Christmas miracle in April! This really did feel like one of the longest weeks in a while to me. Not sure about you guys but I’m DEFINITELY happy to see the weekend. It might just be time for a little whine *oops* wine…for all us over 21 of course. In the meantime, it’s still early in the day on Friday so we’re going to stick with “daytime” topics…like a few of my favorite things! No, I will not pull a Oprah on you or dig in my bag of “you get a car” tricks, I will, however, tell you about my faves!
Since I started blogging on a regular basis about beauty & fashion, people always seem to ask me if I can recommend any good skin/body products for them to try. The best product advice I can give is, a list of items I use every single day. My Friday Faves that you see below are absolute life savers for me. If I run out of any particular thing (which happens a lot because I always get down to the last drop and totally forget to swing by Target sometimes) but if it’s gone, my world crumbles…just a little.
Here are those favorite things:
1. Pink Fragrance Mist ~ $25 ~ PINK Victoria’s Secret
Let me start off by saying this: ladies (and gentlemen) VS has always been known to supply us with great smelling products for EVERY woman. Whether you’re into fruity scents, strong musky scent, perfumes, or body sprays/mists…Victoria’s Secret has it all. I love the PINK scent in both perfume and body spray. I use the spray religiously because it gives me that same perfume scent but it’s not as powerful and it allows me to use as a refresher later in the day.
2. Refreshing Lip Balm w/ Pink Grapefruit ~ $3 ~ Burt’s Bees Lip Balm
The pink grapefruit concoction is usually ONLY available during the spring and summer months so if you’re going to try it…buy it now and buy A LOT! Not only does it smells like you’re eating the juiciest grapefruit on planet earth but it seriously puts tons of moisture into your kisser! Plus, you’ll have just a hint of shine which is perfect for those who aren’t looking to wear anything heavy like a gloss. I love it so much that I practically buy in bulk! There’s one in every bag I carry, the car, and I even found one in a pair of my jeans before I went to wash them haha! Amazing!
3. Eye Liner in Dark Black/Black Ebony ~ $26 ~ Le Crayon Khol by Lancome
Ok, I know you’re looking at that $26 price tag for “just an eyeliner” but hear or read me out. This Lancome liner goes on so incredibly smooth every single time I use it! Bonus, the black pencil that I use is super duper black. Sometimes I find myself going over my top lids more than once with an ordinary liner but not with Le Crayon Khol! One swipe and done. Little shopping tip…buy when a store is offering bonus buys i.e. Saks. You know, when you spend $65 you get a goodie bag filled with TONS of stuff! This helps ease the pain of paying that $26.
4. Richly Replenishing Cocoa & Cupuacu Butter ~ $10 ~ Burt’s Bees Natural Body Lotion
Back to Burt’s Bees! I have the most sensitive skin known to man or woman. It’s awful and it’s been this way since I was born. Anything can break me out, make me itch or send my skin into a tizzy so I use EXTREME caution when it comes to body creams and lotions. For example: little known fact about me….I’m allergic to Neosporin…Neo-sporin! YES! The ointment that’s meant to heal cuts, I’m allergic to it *sigh* So, when it’s time to choose a body lotion, it’s either trial and error or stick with something thick and cocoa buttery. Burt’s Bees Richly Replenishing lotion does it all without breaking me out or feeling sticky. Rub it on and it absorbs practically instantly!
5. Sensitive Skin Moisturizer ~ $9.99 ~ Neutrogena Oil-Free Moisture
Speaking of sensitive skin, Neutrogena has me covered, literally. This facial moisturizer is great for those of us with the sensitive gene and those with combination skin. It’s thick enough to get rid of those dry blotches yet light enough to absorb without clogging your pores. Absolutely worth it.
There you have it! My favorite beauty and body products that I cannot live without. If I knew the secret recipes and ingredients for making these products at home, I’d hustle myself into a sweat everyday making me a lifetime supply of everything! So, I hope this helps a few of you stylish sweets out or even gives you an idea to try something new. Til later…have an outstanding weekend!
