Friday's Favorites | May 8

Oh hey Friday!!! Another work week bites the dust. The weather was warm and this week flew by. I am loving the beginning of this spring/summer time frame. Now if only I could get some sherbet life would be grand. Anyway, here are the favorites this week!

Michael Todd Toner

Blue Green Algae™ Toner
This stuff has been great. When I decided to switch out my face care products to simple and less chemical heavy items, I snagged this guy up quick. It is a toner that I have seen a difference from already. My breakouts have been less red and are not as raised as they were. #winning

Sally Hansen Miracle Gel Polish

I have written a post about this polish before (here), but I hadn't used it in a while now. This week I brought it out of retirement and now I want to go buy more shades. I don't know why I haven't been using this formula more. It is quick drying and lasts the perfect amount of time (just over a week for me).

Smooth Legs

With warmer weather making its appearance, so are my legs. That means it is time to show them a little extra love and really keep them smooth. I have found my perfect combination with this EOS shave cream and the Schick Hydro Silk Trim Style. I can shave either wet or dry legs and the end result is silky smoothness that is perfect for summer.

Grit and Grace

I have shared my love for She Reads Truth in the past, but they are not the only Godly, inspirational group of women that have been following. Lately I started following along with Grit and Grace.

We equip entrepreneurial women to build unstoppable momentum, become spiritually confident, and to never feel alone on the journey.

Their full site hasn't launched yet, but you can follow along with them on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram until then. Trust me, you will love it.

All Hail the Moms

Moms though. Seriously, we wouldn't be on this planet without them. So with mothers day just a few days away, I thought I would through together a wish list of things that love to splurge on to buy my Momma for mother's day.
See the rest of my Mother's Day collection on Keep! And if you haven't started a keep account yet, you should do that too (here).

Talk Derby to Me

-morning-coffee-12

My God, doesn't that look heavenly? Probably one of the best things for my wallet that has occurred since I have started working from home is the drastic drop in Starbucks visits. I am drooling right now looking at that though. If only they delivered.

Friday

After work we packed up the car and started our drive north for the weekend. Unfortunately, the drive took about an hour longer than normal because of a wreck, but we made it eventually. The rest of the night was pretty laid back, just chatting with friends while our doggies played.

Saturday

First of all, my dog set a new record for letting us sleep in. 8:30 is a huge accomplishment and I was super excited about it. After some breakfast and general waking up/adjusting time, Nate and I headed out to take care of some errands while we were in town. Then after lunch glam time started and we got ready to go to the Derby party that night. And by that I mean I started getting ready at 2 p.m. while Nate joined the boys at an off-track betting place and made it home in time to shower and pester me while I finished pampering myself.

We made it to the party and hung out until other people got there. The rest of the night was filled with food, friends, horses, games and eventually a very disappointing fight between Mani and Floyd. It was fun though! Nate and his friend ended up winning the derby too so now we have another trophy.

Here is the photo recap:

Friday's Favorites | May 1


Oh my goodness where is time going? It is already May! Hopefully the weather starts getting even warmer so we can all enjoy being outside sometime soon. May for me means the start of a very busy time of year. There are bachelorette parties, bridal showers, vacations, and weddings all planned in the next three months and I am actually thrilled to be so busy. I'm sure the next three months will bring a lot of new favorites, but for now here are my favorites from this week!

Derby Days

Hooray, it is Derby weekend. Eventually I will actually make it there, but until then I will take dressing the part and hanging out with friends at Derby parties here. This year is the 3rd Annual Trentucky Derby and I can't wait to see everyone's faces (it has been almost a month since I have seen some of them).

Hope in a Jar Foundation



As I try and get my skin under control, I am trying out new foundations and this one feels great on my skin. It is super hydrating and gives build-able coverage. On days that I use my Tanning Water this foundation is perfect to give me a bit of moisture without having to use a heavy lotion on top of the water.

This Techinique



After watching this video I decided to try out her technique for applying sunless tanner on my face/wrists/feet. I gotta say I loved it. My face felt so much more even doing it this way. Winner! I used my Buffing Brush from this kit to do it.

Eye Products

While these aren't technically favorites yet, I have been sent the following products to try out and I am really excited. I really want to find a drugstore eyeliner and mascara that works for me so fingers crossed these are it!


Covergirl Super Sizer  Mascara (c/o)
Covergirl Intensify Me! Eyeliner (c/o)
