Friday's Favorites-June 13th

Linking up with Meet @ the Barre.


Always starting over by Idina Menzel

Have you heard this song?? It's so fantastic.
I first heard it when I was reading about The Tony's earlier this week.
Idina Menzel has an incredible voice. This song is from her new play, If/Then.
Now, I need to go to NYC to see it.

New Product
Nars Radiant Creamy Concealer

I'm quite obsessed with concealers.

If you open my makeup bag, you would find about five of them.
This one works pretty good when I'm wearing my contacts.
It stays nicely in place for a few hours.
Usually, I have to touch up my concealer every hour or so.
However, I find it does get a little cakey when I'm wearing my glasses,
 which is the problem with most concealers.
 I was impressed with how long it lasted under 
my eyes when not wearing my glasses.  Would buy it again. 
If you have any concealers that don't melt under glasses, 
would love to hear about it.


Beauty Tips
41 Life-Saving Beauty Tips

Every girl should read this. 
I love reading makeup tips. Luckily, I have  
had my makeup done by many makeup artists; 
I've learned something new from each one of them.
Did you know that pink eye shadow, can make your eyes look tired. 
I use to complain about how I always looked tired, 
turns out it was because of the pink eye shadow I was wearing.
 Read the tips, you won't be disappointed.

Printable Monogram

If you love monograms as much as I do, this is the site for you.
The best part is they are free!!
You can download, customize and print them out all for free.
I'm currently loving the stickers I created. 
How cute are they??
I put them on everything!!
They add new printables weekly.
I follow them on Pinterest and Instagram to be in the know.
Seriously, you need to check them out.

Words of Wisdom
 I'm sure I'm not alone when I say that I'm always striving for perfection. 
My life is far from perfect and in fact, it has not turned out at all how I'd imagined it would.
I'm constantly having to remind myself that life doesn't always work out as we thought and that's ok. It's also ok if things are not  perfect. 
Life is a gift, a beautiful gift.  
Nothing in life is perfect and no one has the perfect life. 
I need to find the beauty in my life not someone else's.
You only have one life to live and you gotta see the beauty in it.


That wraps up my Friday's Favorites.
Very excited for the weekend as I plan spending some time at the beach.
Hopefully, the weather will cooperate.
Here's to Sunny Days!!
