Seriously it is Friday yet? No? Okay…..moving on. I’m going to be honest I like doing these posts. One because I got great feedback the last time I did it from all of you and two they are not complete time zappers. I’m not going to lie I am a tad OCD as you all know…sometimes I get carried away in photoshop recreating traffic grids or writing on pictures and before I know it…..it’s one am and I am majorly tired.
Okay so let’s talk about some of the things I’ve been loving lately.
I have very long hair as you well know but it is thin and I sleep on my back as we established yesterday. Therefore I get some serious gnarly knots at the base on my head that are made worse when my hair is wet after a shower. This brush is a miracle worker. Slides right through, gets the knots out and doesn’t get tangled in my hair. Since I hate paying for shipping of course I went through Amazon but they only sell them in two packs. Oh well! One for my house and one for Marks. You can also find them at your local Sally Beauty Supply.
This iPhone 5 Backup Battery
I leave this bad boy charged up and in my purse. I cannot tell you how many times this has saved me. Especially in a few scenarios with the significant other who needed a charge. To the rescue don’t mind if I do. I got mine at the local Anthropologie store.
This sleeve for my Macbook
Staying in the tech theme. I bought this sleeve for my new Macbook. I had this one before and honestly it did give it more cushion but I didn’t like how I couldn’t carry my cord with it. This one I shove the cord in the front and it’s good to roll. Plus it’s like ten bucks so at least it won’t break the bank.
I’ve said it before for my favorite daytime mascara it’s definitely this one by Perfekt. The Lash Perfection Gel. I have had this tube for so long and it does not dry out. It is a gel so it doesn’t dry out your lashes. It is a dark black and does not smudge….like take a hot Barre class and no running.
I still love They’re Real! for a dramatic nighttime look but I hate how it is so hard to come off. This removes with simple face washing. Try it I promise you will be absolutely hooked like I was!
These Barre/Yoga Leggings
I know I’ve said it like a million times but I am so obsessed with these Plie Tight leggings. They have washed and worn so well. You can pull the fabric over your heels or leave them scrunched around your ankles. They have just the perfect amount of compression. Come up just high enough on the waist but not too high. Athleta has the best customer service by far. I swear you will love them. They are a splurge but not as expensive as Lululemon. I have them in black and really want them in blue. I am usually a size 6 in Lulu pants and I got a small in these but honestly could have gotten an XS they run a tad big.
Oh and this one also.
I have it but not in this print and I love it. Goes with so many things!
I need this linen dress in my closet immediately.
This Lip Stain
I am all about natural daytime looks especially when at work. I got this Jane Iredale Forever Pink Lip and Cheek Stain in a Birchbox and when it ran out I scooped it up at Nordstroms. It has lasted me forever, way longer than the Fresh lip treatment. I am totally on the pH kick. This adjusts to your custom pink. It has olive and avocado butter as well as rose flower and beeswax. Definitely one of my new favs!
This rice is so dang good. Make a piece of chicken with it and you have an easy meal. It has a sauce when it heats up so just put the chicken over it. It’s in the freezer section to the left of the Indian food but to the right of the frozen Mexican burritos (is that specific enough or what?) So flavorful it is a Mark approved Trader Joe’s purchase and we all know he is the connoisseur of my cooking ;-)
How about that random assortment for you my friends! Alright those are the things on my radar. Have you tried any of these? What things are you loving right now?? Don’t forget about the giveaway and Friday favorites tomorrow!!!! xoxo
