Kinda late getting today’s post up, but I am super excited about this week’s Friday Favorites! Mostly because they revolve around some of my favorite things – sleeping and pampering myself (haha). SO here are a few of the new things I’m loving this week, and I’m hoping you maybe get some ideas on things to try yourself or maybe even gift someone else – because after all, I kind of failed when it came to giving you guys graduation gift ideas. Seriously, graduation snuck up on me this year – how is it already May?
If you have any questions at all about any of these products seen OR if you have any ideas on new things for me to feature in my Friday Favorites, shoot me an email to email@example.com!
1. Mary Kay Beauty That Counts
Beginning May 16, $1 from each sale of Mary Kay’s Beauty That Counts Créme Lipstick
will be donated to the Mary Kay Foundation, which is focused on support of women’s shelters and survivors of domestic abuse. They sent out these super cute chocolate filled boxes with the lipstick nestled inside to spark some conversation about the initiative! I’m feeling inspired by it, and Jordan is feeling full from all of the chocolates he’s eaten so far.
2. Kumi Kookoon’s silk pillowcases
is a fine silk bedding and loungewear collection made from 100% organic silk. (Coveted by a lot of celebs too I have heard.) I’m currently trying out one of their silk pillowcases
– in bubblegum pink of course – because I’m often told that sleeping on silk pillowcases improve not only your skin but prolong your blowouts longer. Um beauty sleep is real you guys!
3. Lake Pajamas
Seriously ca-UTE pajamas! These super soft sets by Lake Pajamas
are made out of prima cotton and are tailored to fit. They come in a variety of chic color combinations including my Berry Stripe Short Set
! Officially packing up the old t-shirts and boxer shorts for these!
Joanna Alberti is the creator of philoSophie’s
, a lifestyle brand featuring whimsical illustrations of Sophie – an everygirl who can be customized to look just like you and put on everything from notecards, notepads, mugs and more! AND Y’ALL. Joanna customized this coffee mug of ME and ODIE. I want to drink out of this mug every single day. Even Jordan was really impressed by my mug – and perhaps somewhat jealous?
5. Kérastase Oil
I do a lot to my hair to zap out the hydration and softness. I color it (you knew I wasn’t a real blonde by now, right?), I use some pretty hardcore hair tools to tame my naturally wavy hair, and I also use some heavy duty hair spray – that I suspect might have some drying elements to it. So this new hair oil that I’m using from Kérastase
is legit. It’s called Elixir Ultime Original Oil
, and it’s supposed to be able to reduce split ends and breakage. Yes and yes.
6. New Pixi Beauty
introduces new products pretty regularly, and they are always so much fun to try out. I’m really looking forward to trying out these especially – Makeup Fixing Spray, Lash Line Ink and Beauty Blush Duo
7. The Simplified Planner
I am always trying to get more organized, so anything that will help me sort through all of my daily to-dos and crazy ideas is a must for me. And if it comes with a pretty pink cover? Whaaat.
I love how Emily Ley’s Simplified Planner
gives me a dedicated blank slate for each day of the year where I can jot down little notes and reminders!
My two favorite products in this month’s Glossybox – Ritual Foaming Shower Gel
and Benefit’s Roller Lash mascara
. If you’re looking for indulgent shower gel – Ritual is it. It’s like shaving cream, but you just lather up instead – LOVE this splurge. Benefit has always been known to have some breakthrough mascara formulas, and the inspiration behind this one and it’s brush is hair rollers which is so fun!
