Friday Favorites

My Top 5 Fave Things This Week!

I used to do a Friday Favorites round up back in the day, and things got busy, I pushed it off a few times because I wasn’t prepared time-wise and then it fell off the map all together. BUT it’s back because I literally have SO many good things to share with you guys all of the time that never see the light of day (or in this case blog). So from here on out (fingers crossed), I’ll be sharing beauty products I’m trying out, helpful tips/tricks I’m putting into action, or items that I’ve kinda become obsessed with lately. AND if you have something you think should be included, shoot me an email at [email protected]!

1. MIMI Chatter’s Monthly beauty box

I think I’ve actually mentioned the MIMI Chatter beauty box before on Instagram, but it totally deserves a little more attention and explanation here. Not only does each month’s set of products come in the CUTEST little pouch (each month is different), you get full-size versions of premium product. Brands include bareMinerals, Elizabeth Arden, Living Proof, PIXI, Bliss etc. Here’s what I’m trying out from this month’s box:

Elizabeth Arden Youth Restoring Essence
Tarte costmetics Clay Pot in rose gold
Egg Mellow Creamexcited to try this one!
Clean Reserve Blonde Rose fragrance
Colorescience Sunforgettable stick
TaTa Harper Volumizing Lip and Cheek tint

How to get this little gem sent to your doorstep is quite a mystery outside of posting original content with quality images to Instagram, so I’m super thankful to be on the receiving end! Feel your social posting is up to par? Email [email protected] with “I want a beauty bag” in the subject line for a chance to receive the next one!

2. Chinese Laundry’s NEW pom sandals

UM I know you’ve seen pom pom gladiator sandals blowing up your Instafeed lately right? But the pom adorned lace up sandals were either super expensive or super sketch, so I’m really excited that Chinese Laundry acted so quickly and came up with an option that I think everyone will be pleased with both price-wise and quality-wise. Under $100 y’all! AND they even send you replacement poms in case you get a little too crazy and one goes missing.

3. BP Sunnies Under $20

I’m a BIG fan of the BP line available on Nordstrom. They are super quick to pick up on trends and offer them at really good prices. I scooped up these new black and gold sunglasses that look super similar to the Dior versions for under $20. (I regularly check this brand on Nordstrom to see their new arrivals so that I can pick them up quick.)

4. Island Company Beach Sheets

Um how BANANAS is this adorable banana print beach sheets from Island Company?! Did you even realize it’s a beach blanket? Not only does it come in multiple cute prints, but it’s freaking HUGE. Like a family of 5 or 6 could lay on this thing comfortably. (Or just me and a bunch of snacks and fruity drinks.)

5. Tassel bracelets you guys!

Still loving ’em. I wore my Gold and Gray tassel bracelets so much last summer that I decided to get some new colors. I’m pretty sure I have the full color family now, and if not, I’m missing just one. (I may even have two of the same color, but that’s neither here nor there…)
