Favorite Beauty Products

I want to start this post off by saying that I am FAR from a beauty product connoisseur. I could give you better suggestions for what exercises you should do to build your glutes or what food tastes best with gouda cheese (FYI: EVERYTHING). I just wanted to share some of my go-to products that I use on a daily basis.

  1. Physicians Formula Tinted Moisturizer– This stuff is the BOMB! It has amazing coverage and it’s super lightweight. It also has SPF 15 so I can slap it on and not worry about sun damage.
  2. Maybelline Treatment Concealer– I’m always looking for a good concealer that doesn’t make me feel like I’m putting wall spackle on my face. This concealer is thin enough to cover evenly but thick enough to cover whatever spots you have. I usually use it under my eyes because my eyebags always look like they’re about to board a plane for a month long stay in the arctic tundra (if you catch my drift).
  3. Not Your Mother’s Dry Shampoo– I love all the hair products that I have tried from this company, but this is my favorite. It doesn’t have a strong smell that screams “I DON’T KNOW THE LAST TIME I WASHED MY HAIR!” It also absorbs really quickly so your not rolling through work looking like a skunk.
  4. Dr. Jart+ UV Sun Fluid– I only have the sample from my Birchbox so I have been extra stingy using this. It was a life saver when we went to California over the summer because I really didn’t feel like wearing tinted moisturizer, but I didn’t want to wear yucky thick sunscreen either. This stuff is thin and goes on really smoothly. It is SPF 30 so you still get a little color without all the UV rays.
  5. The Body Shop Seaweed Pore-Cleansing Exfoliator– I have been using this cleanser for years. My skin is combination, and I could never find a wash that helped both textures of my skin. This stuff has little beads in it to lightly exfoliate while leaving your skin SUPER soft, and the gel helps with the oily spots. It has a slight earthy smell, but that goes away when you wash it off. It doesn’t linger. I love that it doesn’t have a strong fragrance that sometimes irritates people’s skin.

Do y’all have any beauty products that you can’t live without? I’ve been looking for a good repairing hair mask and a mascara that makes me look like I actually have lashes. Any suggestions?

Linkin’ Friday

Good morning, y’all! There are 2 more days until Christmas, and I can’t believe the high in Atlanta yesterday was 60 degrees. It was glorious. So here are some things I am loving around the web today to keep your mind off the impending deadline.

We have been eating a dangerous amount of cookies this holiday season. I just want to keep baking and eating and baking and eating. I’ve given up all self control. I also baked this blueberry cake, and it was gone in 2 days. I would probably use a little less blueberries next time. It was a whole lot of blueberries and not a lot of cake.

I got this adorable shirt at a little store called Crafted Westside at Lenox. I guess it is just a pop up shop with locally made items that they set up for the Christmas season. It’s on the top floor next to Bloomingdale’s if you’re interested. We also got a sick print of Little 5 Points by Caleb Morris. He is AMAZING! You have to check out his stuff. We are obsessed.

We got this blender for Christmas from Kyle’s parents, and it works wonders. We used to have this tiny little bullet thing that always left chunks of whatever we were trying to blend no matter how long I left it running. Now we are excited to have actual smoothies instead of lumpy soup drinks. YUM!

These playground insult videos have me cracking up. I love every single one of them.

I’ve been wanting some cute beanies, and I have my eye on this (cute beanie and a great cause? yes please!) and this one.

Anything you have had your eye on lately? A reward for making it through 2016 perhaps?

It’s almost 2017!

Dose of Georgia love.

 

 

 

 

 

Friday Faves

I love the Friday faves from other blogs so I decided to do one of my own. I hope you enjoy! Please leave some suggestions of your own in the comments!

And awaaaayyy we go!

I have been craving tacos lately, and luckily the hubby wanted some BBQ tonight. So I got to have some BOMB tacos from Spiced Right in Roswell. Seriously, their BBQ is absolutely delicious, and their brisket tacos are glorious. I’m drooling just looking at this picture.

Georgia has been super duper snuggly lately. At first I was worried that she was getting sick (do dogs get snuggly when they’re sick like kiddos do?), but it looks like she’s just getting even more comfortable here with us. We have only had her for about 3 months now, so I think there are still certain things she is trying to adjust to. But I am loving her crawling up on the couch with us and falling asleep. Her snoring is precious.

I am really trying to get on the infused water bandwagon. I know I’m really late, but I really want to love it. It’s ok I guess, but I feel like this would help me get even more into it. It’s so cute!!!

I have been trying for years to find the right planner for me. I like details, and I like to be able to have one whole page for my day. As a student I need room for planning hour by hour as well as a to do list to keep up with homework assignments, but I don’t want some giant bulky binder. I have enough of those. I have been using The Simplified Planner in gold pineapple (how cute are those pineapples?!) since August, and I am so obsessed! I am never changing again. I have found my perfect planner.

This and this iphone case would change my life. I need them.

Do you have any cool things you’ve found around the internet?
