Friday's Favorites

Linking up with Meet @ the Barre.



Black Widow by Iggy Azalea ft. Rita Ora

When I first heard this song,
I didn't really like it.
Now, I love it!
It's a great song to listen to during my
morning commute.


Kieh's Clarity Corrective Activating Toner

As soon as I noticed dark spots appearing on my face, I started using this.
Let me tell you, this stuff really works to lighten dark spots.
It also makes me feel like my entire face is more even toned and well, just brighter.
I noticed an improvement in my skin within days.
I use this both in the morning and evening. 
This stuff works!!

Kiehl's Clarity Corrective Activating Toner

2) Ten (10) Classic Pieces You Need In Your Closet.

4) Five (5) Crazy Reasons Woman Buy Clothes But Don't Wear them.

iPhone 6 & iPhone 6 Plus

Who is excited for the new iPhone?
I'm beyond excited about this!!
Since I have a iPhone 4S, it was time to upgrade.
 I pre-ordered the iPhone 6 Plus and it won't be here until October.
Boo, but I wasn't gonna go wait in line for it.
Did that once before, never again.
Cannot wait for it to get here.

Words of Wisdom

This week was filled with lots of emotions.
So many different things going on and I somewhat
feel like I'm all over the place with no clear goal.
It's frustrating and makes me filled with anxiety.
I have to keep saying to myself, what will be will be.
If it is meant to be, it will be.

That  wraps up my Friday Favorites.
JenniSixx and I have a day trip for the weekend.
I'm really looking forward to it. Should be super fun!!
Will be back on Monday with all the details.


What are your favorites this week??
Let me know, I love hearing from you!!

Monday Morning Gossip & Weekending

Linking up with Leann Kimberlee for Monday Morning Gossip.
Linking up with B Loved BostonChampagne and Surburbs for Weekending.

Last week, I was just so busy I decided to stay home over the weekend.
I needed to relax and rest.
And by relaxing, I mean clean my house.
Nothing like having a clean house and having everything in order.

So I thought I would blog about my makeup bag.
I'm somewhat of a makeup junkie and constantly trying new stuff.

Here is what I'm currently using.

Before I put on any makeup, I wash my face with cold water.
Pat dry and then put on my moisturizer, La Mer. 
Yes, La Mer is pricey but for me so worth it.
It makes my skin feel and look fabulous.
Cannot put a price tag on that.

Next up is my eye cream, All about Eyes by Clinique.
I have tried so many but I keep going back to this stuff.
It keeps my eye area hydrated and minimizes my dark circles.

I let my face dry for about five minutes then I put on my foundation primer.


What I like about it, is that it makes my face feel cool.
Literally, my face feels cool all day.


Love how nicely all the colors work together and they stay on all day long. 


I like it but I don't love it. 
It does last all day and doesn't run.
However, colorwise,I still prefer the one by Makeup Forever.


Makes my lashes nice and full. 
Personally, I think this is one the best mascara's on the market. 


I love how light this foundation is. However, it offers full coverage.
It really does make my skin look radiant.


This creamy concealer hides my dark circles but also illuminates my eye area.
I didn't think I would love this concealer as much as I do.
Oh and it stays put and doesn't melt under my glasses.


Cult favorite
Love how natural it looks.
Totally is worth the money.
It really does brighten my face.

Eye Brighter
This is a brightening concealer. 
I use it right under my dark circles and at the corners of my eyes.
Makes me eyes look bright and not tired.


Love this stuff. 
It not only helps set my makeup but I also love the matte finish it has.
I also use a little under my eyes to set my concealer.
Thanks Bianca for recommending it!!


It brightens my whole face and stays on for hours.
Also, it's so fab that you really don't need a lip liner with it.
It does have a matching lip liner but I did not buy it.
For the time being, I have retired from using a lip liner.


Put a little over my lipstick. Makes my lips nice and shiny.
Not too sticky and not to shiny.

Makeup Finishing Spray 

A quick spray sets my makeup for the day.
This stuff is similar to the one by Urban Decay. 
In fact, they make the one by Urban Decay.
For whatever reason, I prefer this one.
Personally, I think it works better.

What's in your makeup bag??
Let me know, I love hearing from you!!

Friday's Favorites

Linking up with Meet @ the Barre.



 Bailando by Enrique Iglesias 

I love everything about this man!! He is so hot and so isn't this song!!
Every time I hear it I just want to get up and dance.
Yes, I'm totally that crazy person dancing while in the car sitting in traffic.
Go ahead laugh.


Revolution Lipstick by Urban Decay

I was getting tired of my pink lipstick as I have been wearing it for a few months. 
This past weekend as I was browsing Ulta, I came across this lipstick.
What drew me to it was that each color had a matching lip pencil.
Gotta love that as I'm a lip pencil and lipstick type of gal.
 I immediately tried on Rouge 69. 
It's a bright red with pink undertones.
Loved it as soon as I put it on.
I have been wearing it ever since.
What I like about this lipstick is that the color is bold and long lasting.
What I don't like is that it can be a little drying. 
However, I add some clear gloss over it and it's fine. 
This is my new color for fall.
Oh and I swear it makes my whole face brighter.

Baked Sweet Potato Fries

I love sweet potato fries.
 Not only are they tasty but they are good for you.
So easy to make. All you need is 
 sweet potatoes, olive oil, salt, pepper, garlic powder, and cayenne pepper.
Cut them up, put them in a bowl, add some olive oil, salt, pepper, garlic powder, and cayenne pepper.  
Shake them around, make sure to coat all of them.
Put a single layer on a cookie sheet and bake for 15 minutes.
Turn them over and bake for another 15 minutes.
Take out of oven and let cool for a few minutes.
Makes a great side dish or snack.
Simple, easy and delicious!!

I'm sure I'm not alone when I say I always strive for perfection.
  I want everything to be to perfect, picture perfect.
Where ever I look these days, I see alot of perfection. 
Perfect homes, perfect outfits, perfect children, perfect pictures, etc.
 But really what I see is alot of "staged" perfection.
 That is not real life. No one has a perfect life. No one.
I'd much rather be real with all my mistakes than be fake. 
If I'm anything, I'm 100% real. 
Plus, no one is gonna tell you that their lives is far from perfect.
The grass is not always greener on the other side. 


That wraps up my Friday Favorites.
I have no plans this weekend.
I think I might just stay home and chill.
 I have been working alot and well, I'm tired. 
Does that make me a bad blogger cause I don't feel like doing anything?
Yeah, maybe a little. But even bloggers need a break. 


What are your favorites this week??
Let me know, I love hearing from you!!
