Friday Favorites

It has been a long time since I've done a round up of some of my favorite things and I thought it would be nice to take a little break from vacation recaps! This week was all over the place - it felt short, but I felt like there was a lot going on to help it along! Jackie and I are doing a marathon workout class tomorrow - well sort of, it's two classes back to back followed by lunch at Sweet Green so I'm planning on eating a lot tonight 😂! I am excited for the final two travel guides that I have coming up, but in the mean time here are a few things that I've been loving lately! 

Favorite Primer ||

Influenster sent me the HOURGLASS Veil Mineral Primer complimentary to try out and over the last three weeks it's been my only primer. It's definitely expensive, but I always feel like if you put something great on your face as a base / primer you're prepping your skin in the best way possible for the rest of your makeup that might not always be as expensive. It's extremely light weight and doesn't feel sticky or oily like some primers can. The texture is so fine, almost like a satin is going on your face - I absolutely love how luxurious it feels. I normally opt for a drugstore primer and for special occasions use a higher end one and what I love is that there is a smaller version of the mineral primer you can get. 

Le Pen, Le Sigh ||

It's no secret that I have a serious pen problem. I find a pen I like I need all the colors in the collection! It drives Gary batty & you don't even want to see how many pens I have at work. Well I've liked Le Pen's writing style for a while - they don't bleed through the page or smear either. So I decided to add a few more colors to my ever growing collection. The one I'm loving the most is olive green

Mirrored Sunglasses ||

I shared this photo on my instagram on Wednesday and I'm not sure I ever mentioned these mirrored sunglasses on the blog before. I actually bought them last year and they're a little funky which I love. I have the cat eye version, but they have a few other styles as well and lots of different shade colors too! I've been wearing them a lot more recently and can't wait for it to warm up to wear them even more! Oh, they come in 12 different colors and are under $13!! 

Linktr.ee ||

I'm in a Facebook group for bloggers and someone mentioned that they had just started using Linktr.ee. You basically add the link to your Instagram profile and can share more than one link at a time. For example, right now I have all my travel guides and a couple other posts I really like. So when people click on the link in my IG profile, they can choose what to read. You can shuffle the order & what I like most is you can actually see how many people have viewed the links. So you can remove stagnant ones or ones that aren't performing as well. 

Hope you all have an amazing weekend! See you back here Monday for weekending!

  2. I haven't heard of Linktr.ee before so thanks for sharing! Those mirrored sunglasses are perfect for summer. I was so sad to leave my new ones at home before vacation by mistake last week. Those are a great price point! Happy Friday girl :-)

  6. I'll have to look into Linktr.ee! Those sunnies look awesome on you! I have a serious pen problem too. I'm also in desperate need of some new ones because I have me REALLY nice ones, but my cheap but I'm still obsessed with them ones are almost gone because students borrow them & then don't return them & I get all the rage ha. Have a great weekend!

  16. Those sunglasses are so cute on you!!! And I am a super fan of the Hourglass primer!

    ReplyDelete
  17. I've heard such great things about Hourglass overall, I really need to try their products out. I believe they're vegan, too? Or at least are free of a lot of those harmful ingredients, which I try to avoid in makeup; that primer sounds amazing! Those pens seem to be great and I love the color selection, though I tend to only write in black or blue, so boring, I know (haha)! I hope you have fun at your workout classes tomorrow, it sounds like a pretty intense day planned, but I know you'll feel amazing afterwards! Also, I'll have to look into Linktr.ee, it sounds great, I've never heard of it before! Thanks for sharing, beauty, and I hope you have a great weekend ahead!

  35. I love the Hourglass Primer as well! It just feels so great going on! And yes to Le Pen! I think that Emily Ley recommended them because they didn't bleed through onto the next page, and that's my favorite part, along with all of the fun colors! I hope that you have a fabulous weekend!

  46. My local photographer friend just told me about Link Tree a few days ago - it's definitely on my list to check out! I love those mirrored sunnies on you, and that Hourglass primer used to be my ride-or-die. So good, right?

    ReplyDelete
  47. That primer got me curious since you've mentioned it feels like satin. The base or primer is the most crucial component in your makeup, so might as well invest in a good one. Your mirrored sunglasses are adorable too!
