Friday Favorites

8:00 AM

I am currently in a bloggers writing block. I cooked a new recipe yesterday but  wont have a new recipe post for a couple days which also means I need to have something else interesting written up to post.

But I don't.

Maybe the fact I haven't had coffee in two weeks have something to do with it.

The best I can do is write you some of my favorites on this friday.
It's a little different then normal. I took the time to photograph some things around my house that are my favorites.

This body butter was a gift from a dear friend at my very low key, but nevertheless awesome, bachelorette party. I love it. It smells like chocolate almonds. I keep it by my desk and will rub some on when my little blogger hands get a little dry.

 I saw this at the store a couple weeks ago and a couple days after I told my husband what I saw he came home caring this on his back. Needless to say, I was beyond excited.  I will be "that girl" with the R2-D2 backpack at school lol.

In the later half of high school, I switched over to powder foundation. I have a very natural face with freckles and natural tones that I don't like to cake on make-up on my face.
Plus I live in Florida and it's really not worth it.
I have used a basic powder foundation from Avon for years. And then I decide to change it up a bit. Spend a little more and see if its worth it. Oh my goodness it is. I had the ladies at Sephora color test my skin and they found my shade and it completely matched my skin tone. It has great coverage and I don't see any turning back now!

A little while ago, I decided I was going to try to start using facial and body products that are free of gluten or wheat. Even though I am allergic to gluten, I have never had a horrible reaction when it comes to my skin. Nevertheless I wanted to see if my skin look better by taking out gluten in my facial products, mostly in my face cleaning products since then are absorbed into my body. After doing some research I found that Neutrogena Naturals is the one of the best "on the market" products that are free of gluten and wheat. I have used the basic Neutrogena cleanser for the past year and have loved it but never though to try the "Natural" brand. It smells amazing and it even feels better than the regular cleanser.

These are one of my outfit staples. I think every girl needs to own a pair. They are a great go to for everyday. I love my Toms but I might also love these more!

Happy Weekend Friends!
