YAY Friday!!!! I’m so so excited that I get a break from traveling this weekend. I like to travel – over seas, to races, to see family, but week in and week out of volleyball tournaments? It gets a little monotonous. I do love watching my 14teen play, don’t get me wrong. Next weekend I’m sure I’ll be sad that volleyball is over. Track season will fix that. Fo sure!
I’m linking up with Heather at Housewife Glamour for Friday Favorites again. I think it’s just so much fun to see what everyone is favorit-ing. Plus, who doesn’t love some great new ideas and tips?! I’m not affiliated with any company and all of these opinions are my own. If you follow a link and purchase anything, yay you! I don’t get a cent.
#1 – #2 My favorite Foundation
I’ve recently started using this cream foundation and I apply it with my beauty blender. It gives me enough coverage to even out my skin tone yet it’s very light and my skin can still be seen without looking like a clown. Not cakey at all! Do not get the L’Oreal CC Cream. I got it thinking there would be more coverage and color than in a BB cream, and this brand, no way. It goes on white and is supposed to match your skin tone but there’s very little to no coverage. I’m using it as a moisturizer and then I wouldn’t use this CC cream again.
#3 – Spring Scents
Ok so, not only do I decorate my home for the seasons, but I rotate my Scentsy scents with the season and I’m pretty strict about it. You will NOT step into my home smelling cinnamon sticks and wintergreen scents in the middle of summer. No siree!
So with Spring upon us, I have been making the rounds to my scentsy pots and changing them out from yummy spring scents like Serene Green, Simply Lime, Faerie Blossom, and Lilacs and Violets. They are all very light and clean smelling and with the exception of the Lilacs & Violets, not foo foo flowery smelling. Other Spring favorites are Jumpin’ Jelly Bean and a pear one that seems to have disappeared from the product line. I’ve tried to get away with purchasing the cheaper scents from Wal-Mart, but they don’t last as long and start smelling like burnt wax.
#4 – Naked Bee Lotion in Green Tea
A couple of weeks ago I shared the Orange Blossom Honey lotion by Naked Bee. This smaller size is perfect to tote around in my purse and it smells heavenly. The Green Tea scent smells like clean laundry and not like other green tea products I’ve used before. I would definitely not try eating this one and compared to the Orange Blossom & Honey…still my favorite.
#5 Target Cami Tank Tops
It’s been a month now since I picked up my first layering cami tank top from Target. These are the Merona brand. Two weeks after I purchased my first one, I went and bought one in all of the neutral colors. I swear, these are like wearing the softest t-shirt you have ever worn. I layer a lot at the office and almost always have some sort of tank top underneath. Basically, you get to wear a pajama shirt to work and no one is the wiser! I have one in white too but I was wearing it at the time I took the picture. They were on sale at the time I purchased them – 2 for $16. Worth every penny!
#6 Happy Mugs
In addition to seasonal decorating and seasonal scents, I uh, also have a collection of seasonal coffee mugs that I’ve deemed my “Happy Mugs.” It all started with the Spring Green mug from Starbucks up top. I saw it and bought it on a whim because it just made me happy. I’ve seen similar designs in other stores since, but I’m not sure where you could rush right out and get this one. Over the years, I’ve added to my collection and expanded to about two mugs per season. Recently, I added this beauty that I picked up at World Market on my last trip to “fun town”. I’m realizing that I don’t have any “summer mugs” so I better keep my eyes peeled.
Thank you for visiting today. If you want to go check out more favorites, be sure not to miss Heather’s linkup at Housewife Glamour.
Do you have “happy mugs”?
